Islam has come a long way in the Russian Federation, from its first steps in the Caucasus region in the 7th century and fighting a war with the Turks to becoming a superpower in the country and reigning over the lives of more than 10% of the population. 

Islam and Muslims Majority States in Russia, Soviet Union,

Currently, there are four mosques in Moscow, the capital of Russia, and over 8 000 praying centres established all over the country. Today we'll be elaborating on the story of the seven states. 

1. Dagesten is a Russian republic with a population of approximately 330 000 people, 96 per cent of whom are Muslims. 

The state declared Islam to be its primary religion in the nineteenth century; previously, the English practised Christianity and were pagan; today, the state follows the chachin preacher Kunta and practises the Shafi'ai school of thought with safism ingested. 

It has the largest population of Muslims in the Russian Federation, and most of them dress similarly to the Muslims in Indonesia and Malaysia. Mahmoud Ali Kalimatov heads the state of English Sharia and is a practising Muslim. 

2. Chechnia is one of Russia's largest Islamic states, having been declared an Islamic republic in the Ramadan of 1997. The head has memorised the holy Quran and continues to preside over the state as a hard-line protector of Muslim rights, although the state's head has come under fire for regulating tough laws. 

The state itself is known for its diversity in food and scenic beauty. Chechen Muslims primarily follow the Shafi'i school of thought. 

3.  Auerdino is a federal subject of Russia and is best known for its scenic beauty. Auerdino is home to the highest mountain in Europe, Mount Elbrus, and a population of approximately nine hundred thousand, of which seventy per cent are Muslims. 

The cabards and the Balkars of the region were among the last of the north caucasian people to be converted to Islam, and today they primarily follow Sunni Islam. The head of the republic, Kazbek Kokov, oversees the legal and religious affairs. 

4. karachaya Charcasia is a federal state of the North Caucasus region of Russia. It boasts a population of half a million, of which 64 per cent are Muslims. The state republic is one of the most religious regions in Russia, and they have been known to spend their lives practising spirituality. 

Until the 17th century, the Karachais were primarily orthodox Christians. Then the Crimean Tatars arrived, and the circadian Turks stayed until the mid-18th century. They were Muslims, and their influence led the Karachais to accept Islam. 

Their leader, Raseed Tamrazov, has established many rules to balance the religious nature of the Karachis, but it's yet to be known whether he too is a practising Muslim. 

5. Bashkiria is a large federal republic of Russia located between the Ural Mountains and the Volga River, with a population of around 5 million people, 60 of whom are Muslims. The Volga bulgers introduced Islam to the region around the 10th century, and the republic of Bahr stan also has a minority population of orthodox Russian Christians, who make up about 17 per cent of the total population. 

The native Muslim Bashkirs speak Turkish as a first language, influenced by their own history with the Turks. The Republic of Bashkiri is presided over by Radichabirov, who has been known to respect Islam.
