The analysis of some Islamic messages showed that in case of the Russian-speaking mass communication there are used the precedent phenomena in Islamic discourse 1) close to Arabic original forms and transliterated to the Cyrillic alphabet in a written form; 2) translated into Russian and complement Arabic original words or substitute them being partly changed in semantics.
