Who realized that one TV show could edify us from various perspectives! As the Muslim world is sucked into the insanity of Ertugrul and comparable Ottoman shows, its urgent that we reveal what is verifiable truth, and what is only for diversion purposes, on the off chance that we need to really profit by the historical backdrop of the Ottoman time frame. I as well, love viewing Ertugrul and comparative shows like ‘The Magnificent Century’ and ‘Yunus Emre’ which educate such a significant number of extraordinary life exercises, also join Quranic stories and Hadith. And yet as opposed to making anecdotal legends, lets commend reality in the history and value our saints for what they ACTUALLY did.
I have gathered data from different Turkish sources and posts via web-based networking media (with references) from rising data about the numerous valiant characters that we have developed to adore from this TV arrangement. This is definitely not a total record of their lives, however I have incorporated the data that is truly demonstrated. InshaAllah as more interpretations become exposed we can sort out progressively about their lives. Appreciate!

A recorded evidence of his life are the coins stamped by Osman which recognize Ertuğrul as the name of his dad, yet past this very little is thought about him separated from folktales.
There is data and verifiable realities about him that are kept in Turkish chronicles, inside Ibn Arabi’s sequences, in Western files about Templars, in Byzantine’s orders and in legends – however this data just adds up to around 7 pages of sources as indicated by the entertainer Engin Altan Duzyatan, who offered life to this extraordinary character. Regardless of this Engin thinks of it as an extraordinary benefit to play Ertugrul as he was the principal individual in Turkish history to move away from the roaming way of life and hope to set up an express that went onto most recent 600 years.

When Osman was conceived, (1258), Ertugrul was around 67 years of age, and as Halime was more seasoned as well, when regularly ladies can’t have youngsters any longer, he was considered as a Miracle sent by God. Antiquarians consider a dark gap in Ottoman history during Osman’s life as what is expounded on him was revealed 100 years after he passed on.
Gundogdu & Sungurtekin
They didn’t bolster Ertugrul’s way and as we probably am aware, and after some time blurred ever. They carried on with a peaceful and unremarkable life, very little is known or expounded on them.

He was an incredible legend; his life has been portrayed in the book of medieval Ottoman’s sequences of that time, titled ”The book of Dede Korkut” . He was a wild warrior, goodhearted and clever man. His adoration life was amazing, since his heart was isolated between two loves. He went through 16 years in a cell in Byzantine, and the Princess, who lived in that Fortress experienced passionate feelings for him and helped him escape. It isn’t known when he kicked the bucket or to what extent he lived; just that he lived genuinely long for that time, and that he was trapped by cunning and killed, abandoning a spouse and youngsters. We may just think about to what extent this character will be kept in this arrangement.
The same number of us know Ibn Arabi is a well known chronologist, spiritualist, rationalist, writer, sage, he is one of the world’s incredible profound instructors. Ibn ‘Arabi was conceived in Murcia, Andalusia, in Spain in 1165 and his compositions had a gigantic effect all through the Islamic world and Christian world.

She carried on with a long life and she accompanied them right to Sogut. She was a shrewd, mindful and daring lady, who went about as the Bey of her clan, after Suleyman Shah had kicked the bucket. She was generally much regarded and she was called ”the Mother of the individuals”. It isn’t evident whether she brought forth Gundogdu, she unquestionably brought him up. As indicated by one line of sources, Gundogdu was her own child. In any case, since Suleyman Shah had lost his first spouse, before damaging Hayme, there are some who accept that Gundogdu was conceived by that young lady.
He was an incredibly regarded figure of that time, he had 4 children with Hayme Mother. He kicked the bucket by suffocating in River Euphrates, and the spot close to Aleppo, where he was covered in a holy spot for Turks which is presently in current Syria, and that domain despite everything has a place with Turkey, it is monitored by Turkey’s military gatekeepers and you need an identification to get in there, to see the sepulcher of Suleyman Shah. Albeit because of the development of ISIS and the ongoing destruction of hallowed places and tombs from radicals, the remaining parts were incidentally evacuated a year ago because of the circumstance around Aleppo, and brought to Turkey to save.
As indicated by Ottoman sources Saddetin Kopek is viewed as a yearning and abhorrence man, his lone great quality was his commitment to his State. He in the long run figured out how to kill Sultan Aleaddin, his subsequent spouse, the Ayyubid Princess and their two children by harming in 1238. He at that point announced Sultan Aleaddin’s third and most established child (from his first marriage), as another Sultan through whom Kopek increased a complete force.

Known as Ertugrul Bey’s correct hand man in the TV arrangement, yet there is a great deal more to his story! Artuk Bey (otherwise called “Child of Eksük” or Ibn Eksuk) was a Turkish General of the Great Seljuk Empire in the eleventh century. He was the Seljuk legislative leader of Jerusalem between 1085–1091. Artuk Bey lived in Qüddus up to his demise in 1091.

Emir Al-Aziz of Aleppo
Al Aziz Muhammad ibn Gazi (1213 – 1236) was the Ayyubi Emir of Aleppo and the child of az-Zahir Gazi (r) and grandson of the incomparable Salahuddin Al Ayubi (r), the hero of Jerusalem from the Crusaders and Templars. His mom was Dayfa Khatun(r), the little girl of Salahuddin’s sibling al-Adil(r). Al-Aziz was matured only three when his dad az-Zahir Gazi passed on in 1216 at the age of forty-five. He promptly acquired his dad’s situation as leader of Aleppo. A regime board was framed, which selected Shihab advertisement Din Tughril(r) as his gatekeeper. Tughril was a Mamluk of az-Zahir Gazi and the powerful leader of Aleppo for the following fifteen years. Al-Aziz didn’t assume real responsibility for power until the age of seventeen, so, all in all he held Tughril as his treasurer. All in all, he abstained from getting brought into the mind boggling debates between various individuals from the Ayyubi line, and focused rather on reinforcing the barriers and framework of Aleppo. Among the development works started by az-Zahir Gazi and finished by al-Aziz Muhammad were the re-stronghold of the bastion, and, inside it, the structure of the royal residence, the mosque, the armory and the water reservoirs. Al-Aziz is known to have hitched Fatima Khatun, girl of al-Kamil, who evidently shared his enthusiasm for building and charged the development of two madrasas in Aleppo. Al-Aziz passed on 26 November 1236 at the period of only twenty-three. His oldest child, a Nasir Yusuf, was just seven years of age, so al-Aziz’s mom Dayfa Khatun expected the rule. Shockingly, Al-Aziz’s girl, Ghaziya Khatun, wedded the Seljuk Sultan of Rum, Kaykhusraw II (Giyaseddin Ibn Kayqubad).
