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.
