As it was previously reported, the joint delegation of SAMRF and RMC that also included deputy chairmen Damir hazrat Gizatullin and Damir hazrat Muhetdinov, head of SAMRF internal affairs department Ildar Nurimanov and Chairman of the Spiritual Administration of Muslims of Komi Republic Valiahmad Gayazov, arrived to Arkhangelsk with an official visit on November 13.

One of the main goals of the visit of the delegation headed by the spiritual leader of Russia's Muslims was the blessing of the reconstruction of the historical mosque of Arkhangelsk that was built by Tatars in 1905.

After the end of the reconstruction, in the summer of 2014, the mosque was set afire by unknown arsonists during the holy month of Ramadan. An expertise carried immediately after that showed that the foundation is undamaged and that the building could be rebuilt.

Mufti sheikh Ravil Gaynutdin was greeted by more than a hundred local Muslims as well as the mayor of Arkhangelsk Viktor Pavlenko.

Spiritual leader of Russia's Muslims addressed the audience with a sermon and called upon them to rebuild the exact copy of the historical mosque on the site of the held prayer. After that, mufti and members of the delegation performed salah at the place of the future mosque, and Damir hazrat Gizatullin recited ayahs from the Holy Qur'an. In the end, mufti Ravil Gaynutdin offered his prayers to Almighty Allah for the quickest restoration of the mosque and for peace and accord in Russia.

During the visit, the joint delegation also met with the governor of the Arkhangelsk Oblast Igor Orlov, members of the Muslim communities and organisations of Arkhangelsk, and was shown around museum complex "Gostiny Dvor". Besides that, mufti read a lecture for the students of Northern (Arctic) Federal University.
