Before the Arab invasion Dagestan was divided into many states, where lived various communities who followed their own customs and traditions.
Up to V century A.D. all the territory of Dagestan was the unit of Caucasian Albania, but later its southern part passed under the dominion of the Persians, and the Khazars conquered the other part.
In the middle of VII century the Khazars formed their own state named Khazar Khanate. But this change of government lasted only till Arabs have come to Dagestan.
