Ziart of Kishi
Kishi was the father of Kunta-Khadji
Kishi, the father of one of the most famous religious leaders of the Muslims of the North Caucasus, Kunta-Khadji, is a descendant of Quraysh. The ancestors of Kishi visited our lands and stayed here. But their way here was quite long. They arrived in Dagestan, lived at first in the Avar settlements, and then they lived among the Kumyks. After that, they moved to Chechnya, stayed in the village of Melchkhi. Based on the vastness of their travels from one place to another, the descendants of Quraysh were called people of different nationalities. For example, they were called Avars, Kumyks, and Chechens. But Kishi said that they are representatives of Quraysh of the line of Khashim (Abdul Mutalib, Abu Talib, Ali, Khusain, descendant of Khusain - Tawhid, Girma, Amazi, Imazi, Akal, Shovkhal, Kishi). Kishi married Kheda and they had six children - four sons (Movsar, Mutsa, Viskha, Kunta) and two daughters (Mata and Khapta). One day a man knocked their door and asked for a place to pray. They talked to each other. The man was a resident of Ilskhan-Yurt. Kishi asked him to accept him and his family in Ilskhan-Yurt for permanent residence, to which he replied that he would talk with his fellow villagers and report on the decision. The residents of the village Ilskhan-Yurt invited Kishi and his family to move to their village. So he moved to Ilskhan-Yurt. Kishi was a follower of Tashu-Khadji from Sayasan. Kishi fought in the Caucasian war and died in one of the battles. In advance Kunta-Khadji (the son of Kishi) informed his mother Kheda that Kishi would die in this war (with the specification and the day of his death). Kishi was buried in Ilskhan-Yurt, where the shrine was built over his grave. This shrine is worshiped and visited by many people, especially the followers of Kishi’s son Kunta-Khadji.
