CONQUEST Constantinople

29 MAY 1453M conquered Constantinople after weeks of fierce fighting which began
on 6 April, the townspeople gather in droves in the Hagia Sophia and Sultan Muh
ammad II gives protection to all residents, anyone, whether Muslim, Jew or Chris
tian. Hagia Sophia was eventually used as a mosque and other churches remain as
its function for the believer.
Tolerance still enforced, anyone can stay and make their living in the city. Sul
tan then rebuild the city, building schools, especially schools for administrati
ve purposes the city for free, anyone can learn, there is no distinction of reli
gion, to build markets, develop housing, house and even given free to the settle
rs who are willing to live and make their living in the ruins of the city The By
zantium. Until finally the city was changed to Istanbul,
We already know the history that can be engraved in the future. This is great to
learn the history of Islam. Apparently history is not just a series of frames t
hat are repetitive of the past today. In Islam, we know whose name nubuwwat. Nub
uwwat is the delivery of the Prophet about the future that has not happened in h
is era.
That is, we can know with certainty of a history that will happen in the future.
With certainty. Yes, that would happen. Because based on revelation.
Until today, there are still many nubuwwat Messenger shalallahu'alaihi wa sallam
that has not happened. Among the delivery piece Apostle in this hadith,
From Abu Qubail said: When we're together Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-Ash, he was as
ked: Which city will be opened first, Constantinople or Rumiyah.? Abdullah asked
for a box with his own circles. Then he pulled out a book. Abdullah said: When
we were writing around the Prophet alaihi wasallam, he asked: Two of the city wh
ere it first opened: Constantinople or Rumiyah? Apostle replied, "The City Herak
lius first opened." Namely: Constantinople. [HR. Ahmad, ad-Darimi, Ibn Abi 'Abd
al Muttalib and al-Hakim]
This hadeeth was classed as saheeh by al-Hakim. Adz-Dzahabi agreed with al-Hakim
. Meanwhile, Abdul Ghani al-Maqdisi said: hasan hadeeth sanadnya. Al-Albani agre
e with al-Hakim and adz-Dzahabi that this hadeeth saheeh. [See al-al-Saheehah Li
neage 1 / 3, MS]
There are two cities mentioned in the hadith the prophet nubuwwat:
1. Constantinople
The town is today known as Istanbul, Turkey. Formerly under the authority of the
Orthodox Christian Byzantine. Year 857 H / 1453 AD, the city with a legendary f
ortress impenetrable finally collapsed at the hands of Sultan Muhammad al-Fatih,
the 7th sultan of the Ottoman Empire.
2. Rumiyah
In the book of al-Buldan Mu'jam Rumiyah is described that is today the capital o
f Italy, namely Rome. The scholars, including Shaykh al-Albani also point to thi
s argument in his book al-Lineage al-al-Saheehah Ahadits.
Kontantinopel has opened eight centuries after the Prophet nubuwwat promising. B
ut Rome, to this day not yet visited visible can be opened by the Muslims. This
reinforces the statement of the Prophet in the hadith above. That Muslims will o
pen the first of Constantinople, New Rome. That means, already 15 centuries sinc
e the Apostle convey nubuwwatnya of the conquest of Rome, Rome also has not fall
en into the hands of Muslims.
If the eighth-century Constantinople need to be conquered. Rome, when calculated
from the conquest of Constantinople to this day has lasted nearly seven centuri
es and can not be opened by the Muslims.
I do not know how many centuries have since Constantinople fell, to be able to c
onvert the Romans. What is clear, it must be Rome will fall into the hands of Mu
slims. Beliefs that have been proved empirically by the thickness of the fortres
s of Constantinople breakdown.
"The conquest of the opening first occurred at the hands of the Ottoman Empire,
800 years after the Prophet's conquest of these preach. The second conquest will
prove with the permission of Allah, and certainly! "He said of al-Albani Syaiik
h may Allaah have mercy with confidence to explain these nubuwwat hadith in his
book al-al-Saheehah Genealogy.
More clearly, he has sharpened, "And no doubt also that the conquest of the (Rom
an) empire rasyidah to strengthen the return of these people."
Parents Muhammad al-Fatih, his teacher, his community, even al-Fatih himself nev
er suspected that the conqueror of Constantinople, it was Muhammad al-Fatih.
What they all do is dream of greatness, hoping to carve and make all the prepara
tions. For proof-nubuwwat birth of the Prophet. And they have succeeded. We, too
, should be the same. No one ever guessed that the conqueror of Rome is our gene
ration, or children and grandchildren our descendants, perhaps even from within
our homes.
