been a while since last time that i update my blog here. sorry for my fellow readers (yes, the two of you). not been myself lately. so out of tune for awhile. i’m still not out of the woods as yet.
been following what is happening with a certain islamic political party and the relation witht the malay party. are they getting married or what? those related to both parties must be having a field day discussing this. even i am excited and i don’t care much, to start with. to me, this is just a political gimmick. nothing will come out of it. you, politician always like to create this kind of things. it’s lke tv. if there’s nothing on it, it would be boring indeed, right?
what’s the iranians? are they still not over their election results? ahmadenajad has won and the people are saying that he fixed the results. now, this is a bit weird. i always view that guy as a true leader, down to earth and no hanky panky shenanigans. but if this true, then i truly a bad judge of character.
been hearing a few audios on islamic history lately. about the battles that the muslims fought. there’s this time in our history that the mongolians or the Tartars were really at it. fightings and killings a lot of muslims at the heart of islamic territory. we’re talking Baghdad, egypt and a few other places here folks. at that time, we were really having serious flaws witht the leaders and the muslims character at the time. guess God send those people from the land os Altantuya to wipe them clean.
but then emerged a guy by the name of Qutuz that was brave enough and strong enough to gather the muslims to fight the Mongols. he’s a Mamluk. meaning that he belongs to a class of slaves that were bought by the emirs at the time. but those guys are so good that they even managed to form their own dynasty from time to time.
and then story about salehudin ayyubi. the king who acted like a general. he managed to take over jurusalem from the clutch of the crusaders. about the bravery and his general character that is great. he spent most of his time on the battlefield that at his home.
and the most interesting to me, is about sultan muhamad fatih. the opener of constantinople. how he managed to do what other muslim leaders before cannot. to prove thhe truth of prophet’s prophecy that muslims will conquer constantinople before rome.
the story of the conquest was legend. told and studied by the military student till today. constantinople is a strong fort that managed to stood the test of time. but Muhamad Fatih managed to garner the strength of the muslims to conquer it.
guess his age when he conquered it? go ahead, give your best shot.
21 years old. he did it at that age. where were you when you’re 21?
