Osman of the Ottoman Empire
According to 858 AH, Osman, the son of Ertugrul, was born in 1258 AD. Osman’s mother’s name was Halima Hatun. She was a Seljuk princess. The Osmans had three brothers: 1 / Gunduz 2 / Sabchi 3/ Osman [but according to some historians four of them are named Charubatu] the year he was born, the Mongols invaded Baghdad, the capital of the Abbasi Caliphate under Halaku Khan.
It was a big and tragic disaster. However, Osman was an expert archer from a young age. He used to live with his father in hunting from a young age. Among the brothers, Ertugrul loved him the most. Over time, as he grew older, he became more and more courageous. After the death of his father, he took that seat. The dream of a great empire begins. The fight against the disbelievers began. The jihad of planting the flag of Islam land after land began.
Notable qualities of Uthman’s leadership:
When we think about the life of Osman, some of the qualities of his personality come to the fore. For example, he was a skilled general, and a wise political figure. Its most important and significant qualities are:
According to 600 AH, in 1301 AD, the Christian kings of the regions of Bursa, Madanus, Adrianus, Qattah, Castalah, etc. of Constantinople called for a crusade against the founder of the Ottoman Empire, Osman bin Artugrul. The Christians responded overwhelmingly and took an oath to fight against this rising sultanate. Osman marched with his army. Demonstrating boundless valor on the battlefield, he isolated the Crusaders. His heroism became an example to the Ottomans.
After taking over the leadership of his tribe, he thought that it would be wise for him to join hands with Sultan Alauddin against the Christians and maintain good relations. So he helped the Sultan to conquer some important cities and forts. As a result, he became the emir of the Seljuk Sultan Alauddin of Rome. He introduced coins in the name of the Sultan in his area and introduced prayers in his name in Friday sermons.
The people around Osman’s leadership realized his sincerity and devotion to the religion. So they decided to support him and to stand with him as a strong wall against the enemies of Islam and Muslims in order to strengthen the foundations of the Islamic Empire.Watch Kurulus Osman Episode 67 English Subtitles
When he began to conquer various forts and cities, this quality of his began to manifest. In 606 AH he conquered the forts of Qattah, Lafkah, Akke Hisar, and Kawze Hisar. In 612 AH, he conquered Kabwah, Yakizah Torakku, and Bikari forts of Takarru. He rose to the pinnacle of the conquest with the conquest of Burutsa in 1317 AD according to 617 AH. He was able to snatch the victory after a long siege of several years. Conquering Burusa was not an easy task. It was arguably the most difficult of Uthman’s expeditions. At that time there was a fierce battle between Uthman and Icarus, the ruler of Bursa. Eventually, the ruler of Bursa surrendered and handed the city over to Osman.
This quality was known during the war with Icarus, the ruler of Bursa. At the end of the war, Ikerinus converted to Islam. Sultan Uthman gave him the title of ‘Beck’. He then reached Qatar, one of the foremost commanders of the Ottoman Sultanate.
Many Constantinople generals were influenced by Uthman’s personality. They enriched the Ottoman Sultanate by imitating the path shown by Uthman. Many Muslim armies then united under the banner of the Ottoman Sultanate. Among them was Gazprom, a group of Roman warriors. They were a Muslim army that had been stationed on the Roman frontier since the time of the Abbasid Caliphate and had resisted Roman attacks on Muslims.
This mutual harmony gave them a special status in the battle of Rome. This led to the enrichment of Islam and the spread of Islamic law. Another group was the Ikhwan, meaning brothers. They were a very good team, Those who helped the Muslims entertained them and stayed with the army to serve the warriors. Most of the people in this group were businessmen. They spent their wealth on the service of Islam. For example construction of mosques, inns, etc.Watch Kurulus Osman Episode 67 English Subtitles
In the Ottoman Sultanate, they held a very dignified seat. Among these groups was a group of wise scholars; Who have worked for the spread and propagation of Islamic civilization. Made people interested in religious life. Another group was the caravan of pilgrims from Rome. Another group was working on Islamic jurisprudence. They studied various important issues of Shariah. Their goal was to help ordinary Muslims. Especially to help the Mujahideen. There were also people from other groups.
According to most Turkish chronicles, Artugrul handed over control of the region to his son ‘Uthman after the conquest of Kuruhjah from the Christians of Constantinople in 1265 AH, according to 63 AH. Osman then ruled the Christians of Constantinople against the Turkish Muslims.Watch Kurulus Osman Episode 67 English Subtitles
Due to his righteousness, the man converted to Islam along with his tribe. Uthman I ruled with justice in his conquered territories. He never oppressed the defeated. He did not force, transgress and harshly oppress them.
He valued keeping promises. The Ottoman ruler of Ulubad, Constantinople, made it a condition of surrendering to the Ottoman army that no Muslim soldiers standing on the bridge should enter the fort. He accepted it
Seeking the pleasure of Allah:
His conquests were conducted for the sole purpose of pleasing Allah. His rule and conquests were not for economic or military gain; Rather, it was to convey the message of Allah’s religion and to spread his religion. That is why the historian Ahmad Rafiq in his book At-Tarikhul Ammil Kabir said about him: Watch Kurulus Osman Episode 67 English Subtitles
” Osman was a devout Muslim. He knew that propagating Islam and making it universal was a sacred duty. He was a visionary and a strong political thinker. He did not establish his sultanate for the sake of becoming a sultan;
The Egyptians said:
” Osman bin Ertugrul was a man of pure faith. The only goal of his life was to uphold the word of God. He worked hard to achieve this goal with all his strength and intelligence.”These were some of the notable features of Osman I. He was endowed with such great qualities as his deep faith in Allah, his preparation for the Day of Resurrection, his love for the believers, his hatred of disbelievers and sinners, his deep love for jihad fi sabilillah and calling for it. That is why Osman, during his conquest of Asia Minor, asked the emirs of Rome to accept any one of the three conditions. One. Maybe they will accept Islam.Or will provide jizya. Three, or will take part in the battle. So some of them have accepted Islam. Someone has agreed to pay jizya by accepting the second condition. And without compromising against the rest, he has connected a huge area with his kingdom by jihad and snatching. As a result of his unwavering faith in Allah and the Hereafter, Uthman’s personality was fascinating and beautiful. That is why his power never overcame his justice, his kingdom his kindness, his wealth his humility. So he deserved God’s help. God has honored him with instruments of power and victory. This was a favor from Allah to His servant Osman.
Finally, on August 9, 1328, at the age of 36, he passed away. He was buried in Busra.
