A martyr – Bidhnillah – was elevated to the Highest Companion in Uzbekistan, a member of Hizb ut Tahrir: Gyassov Nadir Zyadowitsh, born 15/02/1975 CE in the directorate of Yangiyo'l in the province of Tashkent.
He (Rahimahullah) was sentenced to five years in prison for the first time on 06/12/2000 CE by the Court of the Yangiyo'l Directorate in the province of Tashkent and in accordance with Article 159 Part III of the Criminal Code of the Uzbek Constitution. What he (Rahimahullah) saw - with his own eyes and witnessed personally the cruelty of the prison and its wardens - increased his conviction of the corruption of the regime and the necessity for change. He pledged to himself to spend day and night working to oust Karimov and his criminal, treacherous regime. Therefore after his release he continued in the Da'wah calling for the resumption of the Islamic life with even greater determination and activity than before. He was again arrested on 11/03/2006, and August 3rd of the same year he was sentenced to a ten year imprisonment by the Court of the Province of Tashkent in accordance with Article 244 Part II of the Uzbek Criminal Code.
Gyassov (Rahimahullah) was exposed to various forms of torture and oppression during his detention, and to the different sorts of ridicule and mockery, in order to force him to renounce the Hizb and abandon its ideas, and to snitch on his brothers from the Hizb's Shabab, to reveal to them their whereabouts. In complete virility and altruism he withstood this difficult exam, no sorrow weakened him nor did his determination decrease. They did not attain a disavowal from his Hizb or Da'wah from him, nor could they dream of him betraying his brothers and companions. When he dropped into the hands of the oppressors, they despaired in face of his determination and heroism and decided to expose him to a tuberculosis infection, may Allah destroy them.
When his health worsened the criminal regime – in evasion of the charge of a new death in prison –released him in the month of September 2013. When he arrived home, a physician specialized in chest diseases inspected him. After a thorough examination and the necessary tests, it became apparent that he had been injected with tuberculosis microbes, which led to complications affecting his health.
On 07/10/2013 CE Gyassov was elevated to the mercy of Allah. Allah bears witness to the pledge he gave: He was sincere in carrying the Islamic Da'wah, and devoted to his vow which he made to his brothers from the Da'wah carriers. Not once did he (Rahimahullah) fall into doubt for the length of the road or the delay of victory, because he was confident of the correctness of the path he had taken, assured of the truth of the ideas he was convinced with, believing in the victory from Allah Almighty and that Islam would find success and empowerment sooner or later. Our Lord, the Almighty, said about Gyassov and his likes:
مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ رِجَالٌ صَدَقُوا مَا عَاهَدُوا اللَّهَ عَلَيْهِ فَمِنْهُم مَّن قَضَى نَحْبَهُ وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَنتَظِرُ وَمَا بَدَّلُوا تَبْدِيلًا
"Among the believers there are men who have been true to the contract they made with Allah. Some of them have fulfilled their pact by death and some are still waiting to do so, not having changed in any way at all."
