The emotional message of one of the best fighters in history resonated loudly in the MMA world.
UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov took to social media for the first time since the death of his father Abdulmanap.
One of the best fighters in history was very close to his father without whom he was left on July 3 this year. Abdulmanap passed away at the beginning of July after a months-long battle with several health problems.
Most of the world media then reported the news that the famous coach died from the consequences caused by the coronavirus, and some more details were revealed by his friend Ramazan Rabadanov, adding that Abdulmanap suffered both a heart attack and a stroke.
Abdulmanap for Khabib was not only a father, he was his coach, friend, but also a hero. And it was precisely because of one such relationship that many wondered if the UFC champion would continue his career at all.
Khabib did not go into that part of the story, but he sent a message on Instagram with a quote from the Qur’an that touches straight to the heart.
“Father, I will miss you. You were my father, friend, brother, and coach. All in one. You taught me almost everything I know and I hope you were happy with me,” Khabib wrote.
There is currently no official information about the return of the undefeated Dagestani to the Octagon. Khabib was expected to be able to defend his title on Sept. 19 at the UFC 253 event against Justin Gaethje, but Dana White doesn’t want to rush her champion.

Quran 17:23-24. And your Lord has decreed that you not worship except Him, and to parents, good treatment. Whether one or both of them reach old age [while] with you, say not to them [so much as], "uff," and do not repel them but speak to them a noble word. And lower to them the wing of humility out of mercy and say, "My Lord, have mercy upon them as they brought me up [when I was] small." – ۞ وَقَضَىٰ رَبُّكَ أَلَّا تَعْبُدُوا إِلَّا إِيَّاهُ وَبِالْوَالِدَيْنِ إِحْسَانًا ۚ إِمَّا يَبْلُغَنَّ عِندَكَ الْكِبَرَ أَحَدُهُمَا أَوْ كِلَاهُمَا فَلَا تَقُل لَّهُمَا أُفٍّ وَلَا تَنْهَرْهُمَا وَقُل لَّهُمَا قَوْلًا كَرِيمًا وَاخْفِضْ لَهُمَا جَنَاحَ الذُّلِّ مِنَ الرَّحْمَةِ وَقُل رَّبِّ ارْحَمْهُمَا كَمَا رَبَّيَانِي صَغِيرًا Сура «аль-Исра’» 23-24 аяты. Всевышний говорит: Твой Господь предписал вам не поклоняться никому, кроме Него, и делать добро родителям. Если один из родителей или оба достигнут старости, то не говори им: «Тьфу!». – не кричи на них и обращайся к ним почтительно. Склони пред ними крыло смирения по милосердию своему и говори: «Господи! Помилуй их, ведь они растили меня ребенком». Тебя будет не хватать Отец, ты был Отцом, другом, братом и тренером в одном лице. Ты научил меня практически всему что я умею, надеюсь ты был доволен мною. Ведь в довольстве родителей довольство Аллаха.
