During an expedition, Shamil Basayev (رحمه الله) lost his right leg due to a landmine. Commander Khathab(رحمه الله) describes their meeting;

I cried when I saw Shamil being carried by the Mujahideen. He had a high morale and said to me cheerfully :

“The Russians have given me a present now. In Sha Allah, now it would be easy for me to dismantle mines with my wooden leg”

I got very affected and carried him, so he jokingly said to me;

” I know that you are carrying me because I’m injured now, but I will not carry you when you get injured”
