Did Islam destroy the Mongols? – Rise of Muslims Episode 4

Based entirely on the book by Ali Mahmood titled “Muslims” – Purchase using this link – https://www.kjvids.co.uk/product/muslims/

In the fourth episode of this videos series on the book titled “Muslims” by Ali Mahmood, the author talks about the Mongol Empire, Timur and the The Delhi Sultanate

In the twelfth century the two great empires of the time were the Muslims in the Middle East and the Chinese in the Far East. Between these two great empires lay a vast land, by-passed by history, whose inhabitants were the nomad Mongols who lived as they had always lived on horseback, in tribes without cities, without houses, without books.

It was here that Temujin was born who would later be known as Genghis Khan, the World Conqueror. His father died and he was raised by his mother. Survival was not easy, and adversity turned the helpless and illiterate child into a warrior who created the greatest empire in history, a lawmaker whose Yasa gave his people a code that endured long after his death, and a leader whose wisdom and discipline inspired and transformed his followers. He imposed a system based on merit.

Young Temujin was captured and locked into a big wooden collar called a kang. He escaped but knowing it was futile to flee with no horse, no food and a kang around his neck, he appealed to the family that had been his recent jailor who hid him. Temujin had a magical ability to persuade and seduce. He was saved and many years later he rewarded his saviours with the privileges of not paying taxes and sharing the emperor’s cup. All those who helped Genghis were rewarded, all who resisted him were destroyed.

The most important of the early followers of Genghis were two brothers, Jelme who once saved his life by sucking out the poison from an arrow that wounded the neck of the Khan, and Subotai who went on to become the greatest general in history. Subotai conquered thirty-two nations and won sixty-five pitched battles.

His achievements surpassed Alexander as he conquered Korea, China, Persia, Hungary and Russia. Europe was only saved by the death of Genghis Khan which required all Mongols to return to Mongolia to elect his successor. Subotai was a master of deception and surprise and possessed the soul of a gambler, which Napoleon considered the most important trait of a great general.

Buy “Muslims” by Ali Mahmood

From the seventh till the seventeenth century the Muslims dominated the world. Inspired by the Prophet and his emphasis on education, justice and social consciousness they created a civilization that led the world in knowledge, science, medicine, culture, architecture and quality of life. For a thousand years the Umayyads, Abbasids, Fatimids, Timurids, Ottomans, Safavids and Moguls ruled empires that astounded the world. This was the golden age of Islam while Europe slumbered in the dark ages. Then, in the seventeenth century the 98iEuropeans emerged as the new masters of the universe and the Muslims were cast down to the bottom of the heap. For three hundred years the Muslims suffered the indignities and deprivations of a conquered people. After the two World Wars of the twentieth century Europe and Great Britain’s monopoly of world power declined, the new Muslim states in the Middle East were born and great leaders started the long fight to re-establish their people. The rise of the Muslims was due to values that were endorsed by great men. After the Prophet and the four righteous caliphs, exceptional leaders, scientists and generals left their impact; men such as Saladin, Ibn Sina, Timur the World Conqueror, Mehmed and Suleiman the Ottoman sultans, Shah Abbas and Nader Shah of Persia, Baber and Akbar in India, and Shah Ahmad Durrani in Afghanistan.

Meet Ayuba Suleiman Diallo – The Fortunate Slave

▶ Check out my gear on Kit: https://kit.com/kjvids

Through the Atlantic slave trade, many Africans were forced into the US and we seldom hear about some of their Muslim backgrounds.

One such person is Ayuba Suleiman Diallo. He was from eastern Senegal, born to a family of religious leaders.

He memorized the entire Quran, was an expert in Maliki fiqh and possessed an immaculate intelligence.

Despite his accomplishments and status in his homeland, he like so many others in Africa, was a victim to the Atlantic slave trade.
Enemies captured him, shaved his beard and sold him to work on a tobacco plantation after his ship landed at Annapolis, Maryland in 1731.

Throughout this difficult time, Diallo upheld his daily prayers and Islamic diet. He ran from the family who owned him because praying became difficult.

When the children of the family would see him pray, they threw dirt on him and mocked him. But soon after fleeing, Diallo was again captured and this time, taken to prison.

This is where Diallo met English lawyer Thomas Bluett. Diallo’s piety, literacy, intelligence, and adherence to faith impressed Bluett, who ended up befriending him.

Diallo wrote a letter in Arabic to send to his father, and it travelled from Annapolis to England.

Eventually, this letter landed in the hands of James Oglethorpe, the founder of the Georgia colony.

He was touched by the struggles presented in the letter, and he subsequently sent the amount needed to purchase Diallo’s freedom and bring him to England in 1733.

After his arrival to England, he debated theology with the Christian priests and bishops, and they joined the already lengthy list of people who Diallo impressed with his intelligence, monotheism, and morality.

Diallo, after suffering through such difficulties as becoming separated from his family, sold into the slave trade, forced to work in horrid conditions, humiliated by children, and imprisoned, was finally recognized as an equal.

In 1734, Diallo safely returned back to his home. His father died, one of his wives remarried because she thought he passed, and his home was wrecked due to war.

However, he again overcame hardship, lift himself up, and was able to live a prosperous life.

The Top 5 Countries with the Highest Percentage of Underweight Children

Hunger is a worldwide problem, Hundreds die every hour from starvation, and the problem will not fade away anytime soon. In this video, we count down the top five Countries with the highest percentage of underweight children.

Bangladesh

Bangladesh’s population is large in 2015 the population was at a grand 161 million, and 36.8% of the child population were underweight and 16.7% where undernourished. Bangladesh still cannot provide its people with a fair amount of nutritious foods, says a global report on hunger. Bangladesh has slipped further to 90th position in the hunger index out of 118 countries, showing a 17-notch fall from the previous year’s 73rd place. The country ranked 57 the year before (2014).

Niger

Niger is a vast desert country and one of the poorest on earth. Millions of people, a third of the population, face food shortages. 51.2% of children in Niger are underweight, Starving or malnourished. Aid agencies estimate that tens of thousands of children are in the advanced stages of starvation. Children are dying daily in the few feeding centres there are, where their place in the queue could make the difference between life and death.

Yemen

17 million Yemenis are hungry That’s 2/3 of the country’s population. It is one of the largest food crisis in the world in this country Almost half the population is on the edge of famine. … It’s a huge crisis. The situation? 43.1%  Children are underweight and 25.7% malnourished.

Yemen grows little of its own food, and must import 90 percent of all its goods, but the war has severely limited imports. A naval blockade by Saudi Arabia, with US support, slows maritime traffic and imposes time-consuming inspections. Damage to the country’s largest deep-water port, has further slowed World Food Program deliveries.

India

India with a population of over 1.2 billion, has seen tremendous growth in the past two decades. Gross Domestic Product has increased 4.5 times and per capita consumption has increased 3 times. Similarly, food grain production has increased almost 2 times. However, despite phenomenal industrial and economic growth and while India produces sufficient food to feed its population, it is unable to provide access to food to a large number of people, especially women and children. 194 million people are undernourished in India. By this measure India is home to a quarter of the undernourished population in the world. Also 48% of women between 15 and 49 years of age are anaemic and 44% of children under 5 are underweight.

Somalia

Somalia is ranked number 1 on our list as 45.3% are underweight and 38% are malnourished. 6 million people in Somalia are considered ‘food insecure’. 360,000 Children in Somalia are malnourished. Without Water there can be no crops, no crops = no food and the severe water issue in Somalia is rising, Somalis try to gather water any way they can. Communities drill deep bores 200 to 400 metres underground to access groundwater. Shallow wells are dug in the mountains and dams are built to collect surface water. Trucking in water is also common, where water trucks come periodically to refill water reservoirs called berkads. But these methods do not always provide safe and reliable sources for drinking water.

Churchill and the Bengal Famine

Remembering India’s Forgotten Holocaust

An Indian politician has put Winston Churchill in the same category as some of “the worst genocidal dictators” of the 20th century because of his complicity in the Bengal Famine.

Dr Shashi Tharoor, whose new book Inglorious Empire chronicles the atrocities of the British Empire, argued the former British Prime Minister’s reputation as a great wartime leader and protector of freedom was wholly miscast given his role in the Bengal famine which saw four million Bengalis starve to death.

In 1943, up to four million Bengalis starved to death when Churchill diverted food to British soldiers and countries such as Greece while a deadly famine swept through Bengal.

British policies under Winston Churchill killed nearly 4 million Indians in the 1943-44 Bengal Famine
