Prophet's purported relic brought to Chechnya
Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov broke into floods of tears as he unveiled a purported relic of the Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Him) at a ceremony, reports said on Thursday.
The government of the majority Muslim Russian Northern Caucasus region, raised the 1,400-year-old cup which believed to be belonged to the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH).
The cup had earlier been flown into the Chechen capital Grozny from London where it was kept by unnamed descendants of Prophet Mohammed's (PBUH) cousin and fourth Caliph Ali ibn Abi Talib.
Kadyrov triumphantly carried the boxed relic straight off the plane at the airport to the ceremony on Wednesday.
The flag-waving delegation then arrived to Grozny's central mosque greeted by a crowd of singing and clapping people.
The Chechen leader then proceeded to take the jade-coloured bowl out of bubble wrapping, and broke down in uncontrollable tears after kissing the object, covering his reddening face and shaking violently.
The Chechen government said in a statement on its website that "the cup was used by Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Him), passing to his cousin Ali ibn Abi Talib."
Anyone will be able to drink water from it on the day of Prophet Mohammed's (PBUH) birthday, the Chechen government said.
Kadyrov, who has ruled the region since 2007 and was reappointed in earlier this year, has overseen several grandiose projects and events in Grozny.
He has also encouraged the revival of Islam in the region, inaugurating in 2008 the "Heart of Chechnya" mosque, said to be the biggest in Europe.

Investigator Arkady Renko, the pariah of the Moscow prosecutor's office, has been assigned the thankless job of investigating a new phenomenon: late-night subway riders report seeing the ghost of Joseph Stalin on the platform of the Chistye Prudy Metro station. The illusion seems part political hocus-pocus and also part wishful thinking, for among many Russians Stalin is again popular; the bloody dictator can boast a two-to-one approval rating. Decidedly better than that of Renko, whose lover, Eva, has left him for Detective Nikolai Isakov, a charismatic veteran of the civil war in Chechnya, a hero of the far right and, Renko suspects, a killer for hire. The cases entwine, and Renko's quests become a personal inquiry fueled by jealousy.
