Best Leader and Best Troop

I just read about Mehmed II a.k.a Muhammad Al-Faateh, the leader of Turki Utsmani who conquered Constantinople. These are the important points that I pointed out from his story,

  1. This guy vision is to conquer Constantinople since he was young.
  2. He remember content of Al-quran since 8 years old.
  3. He was the Governor of Amasya when he was young.
  4. He never missed 5 times a day prayer, Rawatib prayer, and Tahajud prayer.
  5. He believe in Islamic syariah to rule his country and it proves the country is wealthy, well educated, and people is happy.
  6. When attacking Constantinople, he treat people in Constantinople same like Muhammad SAW treat people in area that attacked, not attacking kids, women, and elders.
  7. He let non-Moslem in Constantinople to continue their life and do their religion ritual.
  8. He lead the best troops in the world in age 21 years old and conquer Constantinople.
  9. He believes wholeheartedly all is come from Allah SWT and what Prophet Muhammad SAW say is true.

All points above is comply with Rasulullah Muhammad SAW said about Constantinople.

“Lataftahanna al-Qustantiniyya wa lani`ma al-amiru amiruha wa lani`maal-jayshu dhalika al-jaysh.”
“Verily you shall conquer Constantinople. What a wonderful leader will he be, and what a wonderful army will that army be!”
