Sultan Muhammad Al-Fatih – Islamic Animated Historical Movie

Sunday Showtimes buttonAlhumdulilah, every day in Ramadan we are determined to watch one Islamic movie, video, lecture, etc. Tonight, we just finished watching a historical animated movie that my girls and I believe is a must-watch for every Muslim family. Fortunately, we just watched the full movie available on Google video, and embedded below. My girls insisted that this was the first time they’ve ever watched this, so the only logical solution was hubby and I watched it many years ago, alhumdulilah. My girls loved it dearly as we paused multiple times to field questions and recount classic scenes. They all came to appreciate our deep, rich Islamic history and while I’m writing this post, they are each conducting additional research on Sultan Muhammad, the brave flag bearer, and the hadith which the Prophet sallalahi wa layhi wa salam shared of the coming conquest of Constantinople. Please enjoy the movie!

From the youtube description below, the movie’s synopsis:

Historical cartoon of the conquering of the Christian capital of Constantinople by the Muslim Sultan Muhammad al-Fatih.

For eight centuries, the conquest of Constantinople, now Istanbul, Turkey, was a dream for the Muslim commanders. Ever since the era of the revered companion, Mu`aawiyah Ibn Abu Sufyaan, there had been many attempts to conquer it, but none had succeeded.

Every Muslim commander wanted to be the conqueror praised in the narration in which the Prophet said: “You will conquer Constantinople. Its commander is the best and its army (that will conquer it) is the best.”

Muhammad Al-Fatih was born on 27th Rajab, 835 A.H., 30th March, 1432. He was a committed Muslim who abode by the rulings of Islamic jurisprudence. Because of the way he was brought up, he was a pious man.

Muhammad Al-Faatih managed to realize his dreams through hard, continuous work, and well-organized planning. For example, before besieging Constantinople, he prepared for the war by making cannons, preparing his fleet, and making use of all the factors that might render him victorious.

Through high ambition, determination, and the effort to achieve his goals, he managed to materialize his dream, make his hope an existing reality which made him one of the great Muslim heroes and conquerors.

Muhammad Al-Fatih attained this victory when he was twenty three years old. This indicated his early military genius. He also deserved the glad tidings of the Prophet who foretold that a good person would conquer that city.

    This is wonderful! Thank you. He is one of the world’s greatest leaders, and we are blessed to have him. If peoples of other religions had such a leader as he, they would be celebrating him for his intelligence, faith, success, justice, in endless ways including books, audios, paintings, movies etc. We, unfortunately, don’t always know what we are blessed with.

      Our pleasure! Based on a great tweet my 11 yo is making a laptop and titled it “Conqueror of Constantinople”. My daughters all noticed while watching, had he been non-Muslim, he’d be a world-hero, leader, with all the books, movies, etc. that you mentioned. Then we said “Alhumdulilah, we have his as OUR leader, Allahu Akhbar!”

    I generally try not to watch TV/listen to music during Ramadan, with the exception of my “Ramadan movies”. These are generally documentaries on Islam or Islamic Empires , or films about the Prophets. This year I discovered muslimkidsville.com which has links to full-length movies for kids (under Stories). We haven’t yet gotten around to Fatih but my 3yo loves the Muslim Scouts Adventures and the Salaam movies. Would you mind sharing a list of what other things your family has been watching?

    Salamalikum,
    Rassul alayhisalam has always taught us to be upright and to the championers of the rights of others. He also taught against theft and deception.
    I don’t want to be ‘that guy’ but when it comes to these kinds of movies, it is our responsibility to purchase and give the rights to those who spent time, money and resources in order to produce the films. The fact that you and your kids loved this move (as did I) despite the fact that they were made over 15 years go to show that we, more than ever, should be purchasing these films in order to support this effort and guarantee that this quality programming can continue.

    Please consider purchasing a legitatmate copy of these films, may Allah reward you for it and benefit all of us and our children with the continuation of these great movies. I grew up with them and now my kids can enjoy them too!

    Throughout the great scheme of things you’ll secure an A with regard to hard work. Where exactly you confused everybody was first on the details. You know, as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details… And it couldn’t be much more accurate at this point. Having said that, let me tell you what exactly did do the job. Your text is certainly highly engaging and that is most likely why I am taking an effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, while I can easily see a leaps in reason you come up with, I am definitely not certain of just how you seem to connect your ideas which in turn help to make the conclusion. For right now I shall yield to your issue but trust in the near future you actually link your facts much better.

    Pesticides should be used properly for maintaining a garden
    free from pests and insects. Now the big question is how to choose gardening supplies, which are useful
    for your garden at nominal price but with good quality.
