Actually , this's my First topic or thread in this great forum, i gonna talk about great islamic Personalties, Caliphs, Leaders, Scholars ........etc , and my topics will contain images and photos inshallah
and now , shall we begin ???
What do we know about the great Ottoman Caliph "Sultan AbdulHamid ||" ???
Actually i don't know why i began with this great islamic Personality !!
maybe becouse i saw and heared many muslims repeated what Europeans said about him " The Red Sultan" , "Abdul the Damned" or " The Great Assassin" !!!!!
was he ???
Sultan BadulHamid || born on (21 September, 1842) he was the 34th Sultan of the Ottoman Empire.
He become the Caliph on (31 August, 1876)
ottoman empire was very week and ended inside and outside , Big countries were setting and waiting the fall of ottoman empire " Europe Sick Man " which will lead to fall of the caliphate
He tried to unite the muslims again under one Banner , the Caliphate was very week in this time and he tried to show how caliphate is important and he tried to bring back the Glory of the caliphate
Sultan AbdulHamid || succeded to bring life to ottoman Caliphate , he realized that Bringing back to islamic path is the right way to rise again.
He denied to offer palestine as Home Land for jews and as result of this he lose his throne
" Please advise Dr Hertzel not to make any serious move in this mater. I cannot give up even one small patch of land in Palestine. It is not something that I own as a part of my personal estate. "Palestine in fact belongs to the Muslim Nation as a whole. My people have fought with their blood and sweat to protect this land,let the Jews keep their millions and once the Khilafah is torn apart one day, then they can take Palestine without a price,to have the scalpel cut my body is less painful than to witness Palestine being detached from the Khilafah state and this is not going to happen …"
so , he began to put and make projects which can unite Muslims , he put the idea of "The Islamic University" .
But he was Deposed in 1909
and Died in 1918
Actually ,we can say he delayed fall of the Caliphate by what he did
Excuse my litttle english and i wanna see your replies
