The Life and Legend of the Sultan Saladin

characters ó PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ Jonathan Phillips Jonathan Phillips ✓ 4 review The Life and Legend of the Sultan Saladin review Ú 104 To the tutelage of his uncle Over two decades this warrior and diplomat fought under the banner of jihad but at the same time worked tirelessly to build an immense dynastic empire that stretched from North Africa to Western Ira Gathering together a turbulent and diverse coalition he was able to capture Jerusalem only to trigger the Third Crusade and face his greatest adversary King Richard the LionheartDrawing on a rich blend of Arabic and European sources this is a comprehensive account of both the man and the legend to which he gave birth describing vividly the relentless action of his life and then tracing its aftermath through culture and politics all the way to the present day It reveals the pers A civilization in growth peers into the future to create institutions and framework suitable for that era based on their present experience Civilizations in decline on the other hand looks back to and derive inspiration from past glory in an effort to evade from the uncomfortable reality of the present The Arab civilization has been in decline for about three centuries now roughly coinciding with revival in the West New and potent concepts in science art religion and liberalism made the West to surge head over all their rivals including India China and the Arabs The former two paused took stock of the situation and emulated some of the Western techniues to catch up with them The Arabs could not do this The sad fact was that they could not even identify the wilting rot in their civilization Mind you this trend is reversible and it is uite within the scope and power of itsmembers to buck this trend and drive the Arab civilization back into growth again But this reuires calm analysis and patient evaluation of the alternatives Blind allegiance and wild recourse to past military cum religious victories at Badar Yarmuk Hattin and Ain Jalutor irrational adoration of mediaeval rulers are not going to take them anywhere Salah al din Ayyubi was a mediaeval sultan in the Near East who has found a revival in the modern Middle East since the nineteenth century Known as Saladin in the West he unified the forces of Syria and Egypt and took back Jerusalem from the crusader kingdom which snatched it away from Muslims 88 years ago uiteuncharacteristically for mediaeval rulers Saladin showed extraordinary kindness and accommodation towards his enemies This is attested by Western sources as well and in that sense he was much ahead of his time in enlightenment This book examines the life and legend of the great sultan and analyses his relevance in the modern age to fulfil a specific Arab need to position him as a source of hope for the disappointed Middle East since the First World War Jonathan Phillips is Professor of Crusading History at Royal Holloway University of London He is the author of many books on crusades He writes for the BBC and has made numerous radio and television appearancesJerusalem was lost to Islam in 1099 CE in the first crusade The holy city was central to all three monotheistic religions of Christianity Islam and Judaism For Christians the presence resurrection and the expected return of Christ provide a prominent link to it For Jews it is the location of the Old Temple and its centrality is made paramount in the Jewish literary tradition Jerusalem is the third most important city for Muslims after Mecca and Medina The Prophet s night journey to heaven took off from here and it is the site of resurrection on the Last Day Recovering the city was a religious duty that was driven home by calls for jihad to retake the city Saladin could liberate the city when he managed the combined resources of Syria and Egypt under his own throne and with active support from the caliph at Baghdad and Muslim kingdoms in Ira and Persia He trounced the Frankish crusaders in the Battle of Hattin in July 1187 and evicted them from Jerusalem two months later However hard they tried the Christians could not conuer it again till Saladin was alive A few decades later they managed to occupy it for the second time only to be sent packing after a short spell It remained in Muslim hands still 1967 when Israel occupied the city after the Six Days War in which it inflicted a humiliatingly devastating defeat on the combined Arab forces The frustration at the loss of the city sculpts Arab minds to prop upSaladin as a great hero even today and evokes nostalgic memories of his victory over the Western forcesOne thing that is abundantly clear in the text is the sense of tolerance and ethical behaviour of the two parties engaged in a holy war between them It is far above the inhuman cruelty of the Islamic State and al aeda today that provide no room for the enemy Saladin himself was kept as a hostage by Franks in 1167 but was treated with all respects His relationship with king Amalric his captor was very cordial as evidenced in Saladin s fond reminiscence about the king in a letter to his son Baldwin IV after the monarch died in 1174 On the other hand Saladin s kindness and mercy to the captives was legendary surprising even an early modern king He was extremely generous to his relatives and supporters He lavishly heaped patronage on poets and religious scholarsHe didn t enrich himself and sidestepped accusations of greed Saladin s generosity had almost entirely emptied his personal treasury leaving only one dinar of Tyre and 36 Naziri dirhams at his death It is reported that money had to be borrowed to complete the burial arrangements because he possessed no houses gardens or estates himselfWhat probably elevates Saladin as the greatest Muslim sultan ever anywhere in the world is his kindness and tolerance However even he was not totally immune to the bloodlust that was the spirit of the times After the Battle of Hattin warriors of the orders of Templars and Hospitallers were massacred These were specially designated monks who were the fiercest enemies of Islam The sultan offered a reward of 50 dinars to Islamic scholars for killing each monk In another instance that finds echo in the bigoted administration of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt Saladin dismissed Jews and Coptic Christians from administrative positions andconfiscated their property As can be expected and must have been desiredby the rulers many of them turned Muslims to keep their livelihood The name of Saladin elicits lukewarm praise among Shiites for his atrocities against their supposed heresy in the face of Sunni orthodoxy He terminated the ShiiteFatimid caliphate of Egypt and unfurled the banner of the SunniAbbasid caliph of Baghdad in its placeCairo s Shiite adireligious judge was replaced by a Sunni one In 1170 Saladin rebuilt the police interrogation centre as a Shafi madrasa Likewise the Hall of Justice was also reconstructed as a Shafi madrasa In a shocking episode of philistinism he disbanded the grand library of the Fatimids the greatest in the Middle East with than one million volumes The books were sold for cash offered by anyoneA major part of the book deals with the mediaeval period in which Saladin lived and ruled This was marked by truces alliances agreements betrayals cooperation and dynastic ambition saturating the political atmosphere delivering opportunities and flexibility to all It also includes a section on re emergence of Saladin in the Arab world in modern times This occurred by the beginning of the nineteenth century by which time the Ottoman Empire crumbled and Western powers began to nibble on Arab lands as part of their imperial aspirations Military weakness compelled the Arab society to find an icon of resistance and overwhelming potential to oust the foreigners After the Second World War secular politicians like Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt Saddam Hussein of Ira Gaddafi of Libya and Hafiz al Asad of Syria have tried to donSaladin smantle with varying degrees of failure The predicament of Arab society is that it can never get out of its religious moorings in a changing world It still longs and craves for mediaeval heroes who defeated the ancestors of their present enemies If Saladin had not been born they would have gone straight back to the legacy of the Prophet and his companionsThe book is very easy to read A number of photographs are included to add interest An extensive list of primary and secondary sources is also included Philips follows a non confrontational approach on all issues which give it the feel of a textbook He has also expressed a distinctly anti crusade stance so as to make the book appealing to Arab readersThe book is highly recommended
