Turkish drama serial Ertugrul Ghazi, a reflection of Muslim Ummah history


Muslims and even non-Muslims are now familiar with this name. Ertugrul Ghazi was the founder of the Ottoman Caliphate and the father of Usman Ghazi, who united the "Qai Turks" (the most powerful tribe of Oghuz Turks) after the fall of the Seljuk Empire and defended the rest of the Turkic tribes from the Mongols. Ertughul Ghazi was the son of Suleiman Shah, the chief of the same Qai tribe, who himself was a worthy and courageous chief. Ertugrul Ghazi left behind his "semi-empire" of 4,000 square miles. The empire consisted only of the Qai tribe. However, his son Usman Ghazi later united the rest of the Oguz Turk tribes to 16,000 square miles. Thus the Ottoman Empire was founded which in the coming times spread over three continents and became a world superpower as a great empire and defended the Muslim nation for 600 years.

Undoubtedly, this is a milestone that one can seldom achieve. This serial based on the history of the Ottoman Caliphate has now become popular all over the world. The nations of the world, especially the Muslim world, are watching it with full vigor. From the Middle East to South Asia and from Europe to Africa, the name of Ertugrul Ghazi has become commonplace.

There are thousands of users who are speaking and writing in favor of this serial. This serial has not only social benefits but also this serial is proving to be politically useful.

This is the first story of the Ottoman Empire that has become popular all over the world because it is the first attempt of its kind to mention a Muslim empire in this way. Commenting on this, the famous American newspaper Washington Post wrote that "looking at Ertugrul Ghazi shows what Erdogan's intentions are."

While numerous columns were written in favor of this serial and many scholars gave positive hints, fatwas were also issued against watching it. Notable among them are the famous Darul Uloom Deoband (India) and Darul Iftaa Karachi (Pakistan) of the subcontinent. Mentioned. These two institutions have declared this serial as haraam and have asked to refrain from watching it. The fatwa issued by these two institutions has objected that on one hand there are non-mahram girls in this serial and on the other That videography and music are also forbidden in Islam.


Therefore, watching this serial is not allowed according to Shariah. While a scholar and Mufti of Darul Uloom Deoband but also famous columnist and writer Mufti Abu Lababa Shah Mansoor (Pakistan) has spoken in favor of this serial that they can watch it because it contains Islamic History is shown which is a good thing in this age of tribulation.
Now let's go a little further and look at social media as the most talked about issues in the current era are on social media especially Facebook and Twitter because everyone here can express their opinion freely.



One user wrote on Facebook, "Ever since I started watching the Ertugrul serial, I've been praying five times, and I've never prayed before." Another user wrote that "Ertugrul Ghazi serial has taken Muslims out of despair". There are thousands of other similar users who are speaking and writing in favor of this serial. This serial has not only social benefits. This serial is also proving to be politically useful.


On the one hand, this serial is proving to be a deterrent to the cultural invasion by the West, which is being most influenced by the media in this era. Politically, the benefits are that the Islamic world is getting acquainted with the blessings of the Khilafah, which is a great blessing. Similarly, the Ottoman script, which is actually the Arabic script, is making a comeback in Turkey.
Yes, the letters written in this serial are written in the original Turkish language and Arabic script which was used during the Ottoman Caliphate. But with the abolition of the Caliphate in 1923, this script was abolished and the English script was abolished. The letter was introduced.


It should be noted that Turkish language is written on the right side like Urdu, Arabic, Persian and Kashmiri. But from 1923, it was reversed and started writing on the left side like English language and English words started to be used.
When the Ottoman Caliphate was overthrown in 1923, Mustafa Kemal Pasha banned the Arabic script, the call to prayer in Arabic, and the recitation of the Qur'an, creating a gulf of hatred between Arabs and Turks. Those distances are also coming to an end. Although the series has been banned in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, millions of young Arabs continue to watch it on social media via Facebook, creating an atmosphere of love between Arabs and non-Arabs. It will help in recovery, God willing.

One of the features of this serial is that the Muslim Ummah is enjoying its glorious and glorious past, which will cast a shadow of emptiness and inferiority on the Ummah. But it is occupied by Jews who are always on the lookout for how to eradicate the Muslim Ummah. Due to the media, the Jewish and Western nations have entered the minds of the Muslim Ummah.


In this gloomy darkness of despair, where this effect has been somewhat erased with the help of this serial, the Muslim Ummah has raised the first flag of success in the field of media that "Muslim Ummah is not less than any other nation". But it is somewhat easy to compete with the West, but it is a very difficult and complex task in the media war. Secondly, other nations should also be acquainted with Islamic history.

Now as far as the fatwa on this serial is concerned, it is the opinion of one or two sections of this ummah while there are millions of people in the Muslim ummah who have their own point of view. According to Syed Salman Hussaini Nadvi, Darul Uloom Deoband And the point of view of Dar-ul-Iftaa Karachi cannot be the point of view of the entire Muslim nation nor the view of Darul Uloom Nadwa can be the point of view of the entire Ummah.


Similarly, the point of view of any other organization cannot be the point of view of the entire Muslim nation, but when the whole world of Islam, which is spread across the continents of Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and other continents, agrees on an issue, the whole Ummah The point of view of the Muslim Ummah will be accepted, otherwise the opinion of any particular class cannot be the opinion of the entire Ummah. In this age when the Muslim Ummah is facing crisis issues, there are very few Muslims who are familiar with Islamic history.

Rather, it is sad to say that there are many people who do not even remember the word, which is the first condition of being a Muslim. Invasion must be fought politically, cultural aggression must be fought culturally, economic aggression must be fought economically and media aggression must be fought in the field of media.

Turkish President Rajap Tayyab Erdogan, who co-authored the Ertugrul Ghazi serial, says: "The world wants us (Muslims) to feel ashamed of our history, but we should be proud of our history, that our history is glorious and glorious. The Turkish president is saying that we should be proud of our history, but the tragedy is that the Muslim nation does not know what their history is, whether there is a history or not.

We will be proud only when we look at our history. I saw the Ertugrul Ghazi serial myself two years ago. Believe me, I am very happy that at least there is someone who is presenting our glorious history to the world. This serial spread from Turkey is popular among the people. The young people who used to have the cancer of Hollywood and Bollywood are now returning to Islamic history. The boys who were fond of Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan now have Muhammad bin Qasim and Tariq bin Ziad as their own. Adhering to the ideal.

The girls who were imagining husbands like Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan after watching the useless Star Plus serials, are now thinking of improving their world and the hereafter by marrying a young man who is committed to fasting and has high morals.
Just a few days ago, a foreign couple was so impressed by the Ertugrul Ghazi serial that they converted to Islam at the hands of the actor who played the role of Abdul Rehman in the serial.



It is as if this serial has now become a source of Islamic Da'wah. However, it is also a bitter truth that the field in which the Muslim Ummah has the most strip is the field of media because the Ummah has never had any top management of media. But now it seems that the sleeping Ummah is taking crores, moving towards awakening, planning for the future.

Which is a welcome thing. Therefore, it is necessary to work with understanding and foresight. Negative attitudes as well as positive things should be taken into consideration. If something has a negative side but also a positive side, and if this positive side is more than the negative side and also beneficial, then that thing is good and beneficial. Also. Ertugrul Ghazi serial also falls in the same category, its negative side is only one but the positive aspects are many. So you can watch Ertugrul Ghazi serial. There is no obscenity in it. There are benefits.
