As far as I'm everyone, I am in Istanbul and I bumped into a very special place. This is a graveyard. This is where many Ottoman officers are buried. Officers from the late Ottoman,
military or maybe state, they can see.
Muhammad side Pasha
died in 1335.
We have overlooked the old blue armored bike. He died in 1307, more than 100 years ago, nearly 140 years, almost
Basically, these are the graves of Ottoman officers, how do I know that I know that I'm dead, this is before the collapse of the Ottoman philosopher okay.
Because these days are
different before that period. So, these are definitely Ottoman officers, who served either in the Ottoman army or the state, late Ottoman State because the title parsha was for important people like for example, this one metal feet Pasha the fat, which is basically debts 1919. So this is before the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. It corresponds to 1335 Hijiri. May Allah have mercy on these men in
the Ottoman Empire to the best of their abilities. Some of these graves have very nicely called tombstones, you can see the calligraphy, there are the hours, sometimes verses of Quran, the name and the status and the position of the deceased. This particular grave, basically is Ismail Hucky. Admiral he was very Amuro Amira, Ismail Aki. And he was he died in 1316.
Exactly the same year when my great grandfather Schekman Hajime Sirajuddin passed away corresponds to the 1899. That's the year my great grandfather's grandfather passed away in 1316, which is 1899. So this was an ottoman officer. Again here.
We have Javed Bey. Allah have mercy on him 1317 He passed away, which possibly corresponds to 1900 or 19. One, one, then we have Fazal Pasha, you can see and Allah have mercy on him. He died in 1318, maybe 1902 or 1901.
was very special.
When you look at the grave, you can tell that this was someone important. Okay. He did. Muhammad Ali Pasha oberlo Helene Pasha, basically. And he died in 1312, which is about 1896, something like that.
This seemed to be a very special monument to clearly an Ottoman army officer who died in 1309.
you can tell by this military military regalia depicted on his tomb,
mostly on him, by the way, I mean, I personally don't agree with this kind of
decoration on graves. The Prophet salallahu Salam clearly commanded that graves shouldn't be higher than one hand, but this was the way of the Ottomans know, what can we do? But hamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala you know, gave these people the honor to serve the last helluva, albeit
you know, established. But hamdulillah
they were in they were serving the cause of Islam. So this is acid Pasha, who died in 1312. Right, this seems to be a special place.
This person died in 1312. I don't know what the name is.
And you know, these instructions are in Ottoman Turkish. When Mustafa Kemal he came to power, he changed the script from the Arabic script to the Latin script. So Turkish language today is written in the Latin script. But previously, this is the script that was used to write the Turkish language isn't called
Ottoman Turkish language 1314 This person, he died
lightly. Okay, so these are some of the new grades.
I don't know this, because these are from the past
Republic period later on, because the script here is in Latin, it is not in the Arabic grasp or is not the Arabic script.
So this graveyard seems to be very special is definitely
Ottomans, Ottoman officers, Ottoman dignitaries and Ottoman military men who died and were buried. May Allah have mercy on them. Just wanted to share this very quickly with you history bytes.
