ERTUĞRUL Gazi And The Birth Of The OTTOMANS - KJ Vids
 
02:46
Diriliş Ertuğrul and the Birth of the Ottomans Brand new KJ Vid in special collaboration with Dilly Hussain - Co-founder of 5Pillars Media - the biggest Muslim news site in Britain - 5Pillars Millions have been inspired by the hit Turkish documentary on the founding father of the Ottoman State. It's very easy to understand why! Support KJ Vids - https://goo.gl/QKmkSM Millions of Muslims around the world have been watching the hit Turkish show, ‘Dirilis Ertugrul’. The show is a fictionalised historical drama series on the life and struggles of Ertugrul Gazi and the Kayi tribe. Ertugrul Gazi was the father of Sultan Osman I, who founded the Ottoman State in 1299 CE (698 AH). Most Ottoman chroniclers date the dynasty's lineage back to the Kayi tribe. The Kayis migrated from Central Asia to escape the Mongol raids in the beginning of the thirteenth century. They eventually settled in Anatolia under the protection of the Seljuk Sultanate of Rum (the Western Seljuk State). Initially led by Suleiman Shah, the father of Ertugrul Gazi and the grandfather of Sultan Osman I, the Kayis were loyal citizens of the Seljuk State. They defended the Western frontier of the Seljuk State, which neighboured the Eastern Roman Byzantine Empire. The Kayis led by Ertugrul Gazi, fought the Byzantines, the Crusaders and the Mongols under the banner of the Seljuk State. Ertugrul Gazi was an advocate of Muslim unity and the establishment of a State which would rule with the Divine justice of Islam. The renowned Sufi mystic, Ibn al-Arabi and the famous Anatolian scholar, Shaykh Edebali both documented their encounters with Ertugrul Gazi. After the gradual decline and subsequent demise of the Seljuk Sultanate of Rum, independent ‘Beyliks’ (principalities) began to emerge in Anatolia. One of these Anatolian Beyliks in the late thirteenth century was the Kayi principality, which evolved to the Ottoman Sultanate in 1299 CE. Ertugrul Gazi is a revered figure among Turkish Muslims because he laid the foundations for the Ottoman State. Ertugrul Gazi died in 1281 in the city of Sogut, which was the first capital of the Ottoman State and is regarded as the birthplace of the Osmanli Dynasty.

How an OTTOMAN Sultan Helped Ireland During the Great FAMINE - KJ Vids
 
04:15
The Great Famine in the mid-19th century was one of the most devastating events in Irish history. Between 1845 and 1852, potato blight hit the island’s potato crop. The potato was a staple item of food in Ireland. A lack of good harvesting led to mass starvation, disease, and the deaths of nearly a million people. One of the unexpected sources of aid in this crisis was the Ottoman Caliphate. Sultan Abdul Majeed I the First, went out of his way to try to help so he could ease the suffering of the Irish people. Sultan Abdul Majeed was only 23 years old in 1847 when he personally offered £10,000 in aid to Ireland, but he had already ruled the Caliphate for nearly ten years. In that time, he earned the admiration of many of his own subjects and others around the world. But this time he would have to scale back his generosity. British diplomats advised him that it would be offensive for anyone to offer more than Queen Victoria, who had only donated £2,000. It was suggested that he should donate half of that amount, so he gave £1,000. The Sultan’s donation was appreciated by the public in Britain and Ireland as well. One English religious journal published an article titled “A Benevolent Sultan” in which the author wrote, “For the first time a Mohammedan sovereign, representing multitudinous Islamic populations, manifests spontaneously a warm sympathy with a Christian nation. May such sympathies, in all the genial charities of a common humanity, be cultivated and henceforth ever be maintained between the followers of the crescent and the cross!” The press also blamed the British diplomats in Constantinople for rejecting the initial donation of £10,000 just to avoid embarrassing Queen Victoria. Meanwhile, Sultan Abdul Majeed had found other ways to help. Today, the port town of Drogheda in Ireland includes a crescent and a star, both of which are symbols of Islam, in its coat of arms. Local tradition in the town has it that these symbols were adopted after the Ottoman Empire secretly sent five ships loaded with food to the town in May 1847. The reason for the secrecy is that the British administration had allegedly tried to block the ships from entering Drogheda’s harbor. Evidence that story these claims include newspaper articles from the period and a letter from Irish notables explicitly thanking the sultan for his help. The nationalist Irish Freeman’s Journal celebrated these efforts. “The conduct of Abdul Majeed on the occasion referred to,” the author wrote, “was that of a good, humane, and generous man. A believer in Mohammedanism, he acted in the true spirit of a follower of Christ, and set an example which many professing Christians would do well to imitate.” Though Abdul Majeed probably hadn’t expected any kind of returns on his aid to the Irish, some of them rallied to his side in 1854, just two years after the famine ended. Britain had become involved in the Crimean War to defend Ottoman territory against an expanding Russian Empire. In addition to Irish nurses and engineers (and some of the first war journalists in history), about 30,000 Irish soldiers served in the war. Despite the suffering that they and their families had endured during the Great Famine, they were noticed to be serving enthusiastically in defense of the territory of the sultan who had helped them in their time of need.

Why the GWADAR PORT in Pakistan is changing the world’s geo-political landscape - KJ Vids
 
02:36
Why a fishing town in Pakistan is changing the world’s geo-political landscape! A small fishing town in the South-West of Pakistan, Gwadar is the gateway city of China's $62 Billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor. A deep sea port strategically located in the Indian Ocean at the opening of the Strait of Hormuz. Pakistan leased Gwadar Port to China in 2015 as part of a $62 Billion deal. China also acquired 22,000 acres of land adjoining the port in Gwadar which has been declared a Special Economic Zone. A 1224 Kilometre highway is being built from China ending in Gwadar emulating the ancient Silk Road Gwadar will link the Silk Road on land with the Maritime Silk Road The new Silk Road reduces shipping times for Chinese goods to the Middle-East, Africa and Europe by up to 80%. Gwadar is being developed under the model of China's Shenzhen through the establishment of Special Economic Zones. Shenzhen was amongst the fastest growing cities in the world growing from a population of 30,000 in 1979 to 10 Million in 2017 with a GDP of $294 Billion! Zhang Baozhong, the Chairman of China Overseas Port Holding Company said “China plan to spend $4.5 billion on developing Gwadar.” In November 2016 the first cargo travelled the Silk Road from Kashgar in China to Gwadar and shipped out from Gwadar to the Middle-East and Africa. Currently there are some 2000 Chinese personnel in Gwadar this number is projected to grow up to 500,000 by 2023. There is a geo-political shift happening in the world and Gwadar is at the heart of this. We're also currently running a crowdfunding campaign to help our operation produce more and better videos.

Osman Gazi and the BIRTH of the OTTOMAN EMPIRE - KJ Vids
 
03:07
In the summer heat in the year 1071, a history-changing battle was raging in the eastern part of Anatolia. The Seljuk Turks from Central Asia, had built a powerful empire that was clashing with the mighty Byzantines Empire. The result of the Battle of Manzikert in 1071 was a decisive Seljuk victory with the Byzantine army in tatters. Turkish settlers created their own towns and cities, while intermarrying with the local populations, who were converting to Islam. These states were known as "beyliks." Each State had a leader who directed the Ghazi's. By the 1200s, there were numerous beyliks. One of these beyliks was that of ghazi by the name of Osman. He was born in 1258, the same year Baghdad was destroyed by the Mongols. Legend has it that Osman once had a dream in which a tree grew out of his chest. It’s roots and branches grew to cover Asia, Europe, and Africa. Osman’s Shaykh interpreted the dream as a sign that Osman’s descendants would have an empire that controlled the three continents. The borders of Osman’s beylik in the town of Söğüt in northwestern Anatolia pressed right up against the Byzantine Empire. This made being a ghazi vital and central to Osman’s life. As a result, his stature grew and ghazis rushed to join his growing state. In addition to this, the Mongol armies were still wreaking havoc on Southwest Asia, and fleeing refugees found a new home in Osman’s beylik. With a huge influx of warriors, Osman continued to press against the Byzantines who were at this point were in full decline. As a result, Osman greatly expanded his territory throughout the opening decades of the 1300s. His beylik became an empire. The Ottomans themselves called their state Devlet-i Osmaniyye, Turkish for “The State of Osman”. Known in English as "The Ottomans."

Imam Ghazali - "The PROOF of ISLAM" - KJ Vids
 
02:39
Abu Hamid Muhammad al-Ghazali, born on 450 AH (1058 A.D) in Iran, grew up in poverty and lost his father at a young age. Under the care of his father's friend, Al-Ghazali and his brother, saw their inheritance spent on their education. Studying at Al-Nizamiyya of Baghdad, he learned theology under jurists of Islamic scholarship, like Al-Juwayni. The Grand Vizier took special interest in Al-Ghazali and encouraged him to devote time to the pursuit of knowledge. Around 484 AH (1091 A.D), Al-Ghazali began a career of teaching and lecturing at the same University he was once a student. His work "Incoherence of the Philosophers", was a landmark in the history of philosophy, as he refuted Aristotelian science. In 488 AH (1095 A.D) Al-Ghazil questioned the purity of his own intentions, due to his widespread fame and international prestige. Abandoning his post at Nizamiyya, he travelled to Damascus and Jerusalem, where he dedicated his life to God through asceticism. After a decade of seclusion, he returned to his family in Baghdad, where he continued his teaching and works. A prolific writer and theologist, Al-Ghazali has in excess of 400 books ascribed to him, covering all fields of Islamic Science. Imam Al-Ghazali's works were so highly acclaimed, he was awarded the honorifictitle Hujjat al-Islam -"Proof of Islam". Imam al Ghazzali died in 505 AH (1111 A.D) in his home village of Tus, Iran. The ripples of his work continue to impact the world. "The corruption of religions comes from turning them to mere words and appearances" Imam Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali Support our content by becoming a KJ Patreon https://www.patreon.com/kjvids Website - www.kjvids.co.uk Facebook - www.facebook.com/KJVids Twitter - www.twitter.com/kjvids2016 Instagram - www.instagram.com/kjvidsofficial All Rights Reserved.

What is ERDOĞAN'S IDEOLOGY? - KJ Vids
 
05:17
What is ERDOĞAN'S IDEOLOGY? - KJ Vids In June 2018, Turkey’s President Erdogan claimed victory in presidential and parliamentary elections, securing five more years in office. Despite concerns about the economy and a plunging Lira, Erdogan won 53% of the vote with over 90% of ballot boxes opened. His victory triggered a change to a powerful presidential system that places unprecedented powers in his hands. These powers include complete control of the cabinet and the power to appoint senior judges and officials, including unelected vice-presidents. To the outside world, the election was the latest step in Erdogan's systematic consolidation of power and his bid to transform the once-staunchly secular republic in his more religiously minded image. But while many commentators in the West resent Erdogan for his Islamist leanings, the real ideology that underpins his rule is not religion, but secular nationalism.

The 1979 Siege of Makkah
 
03:05
In the early morning of 20 November 1979, the imam of the Grand Mosque was preparing to lead the prayers for the fifty thousand worshipers who had gathered for prayer Around 5:00 am, he was interrupted by insurgents who procured weapons from under their robes, chained the gates shut and killed two policemen. The insurgents released most of the hostages and locked the remainder in the sanctuary. They took defensive positions in the upper levels of the mosque, and sniper positions in the minarets, from which they commanded the grounds. The dissidents declared that the Mahdi had arrived in the form of one of their leaders, Mohammed Abdullah al-Qahtani, and called on Muslims to obey him. The seizure was led by Juhayman al-Otaybi who declared his brother-in-law Mohammed Abdullah al-Qahtani to be the Mahdi. Otaybi was a preacher, a former corporal in the Saudi National Guard, and a former student of Sheikh Abdel Aziz bin Baaz, who went onto become the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia. al-Otaybi had turned against bin Baz and began advocating a return to the original ways of Islam, a repudiation of the West, an end to education of women, the abolition of television and the expulsion of non-Muslims.

Why is JAPAN'S ARMY REARMING AGAIN? - KJ VIDS

The gradual but firm shift in Japan’s defence posture is among the most notable developments characterising the Asia-Pacific’s international dynamics in the past few years. Its efforts to increase its military power, accompanied by attempts to change the Constitution to expand the means and the duties of its military forces are to be interpreted in a broader context of growing security challenges. But what exactly are the drivers behind Japan’s re-arm?

Did the OTTOMANS nearly CONQUER ITALY? - KJ Vids In 1480 Memet the Conqueror launched the most audacious expedition of his leadership. He sent an army under the Grand Admiral of the Ottman Navy, Gedik Ahmet Pashato Southern Italy to capture Otranto. The army moved inland towards Brindisi, Taranto and Lecce, but Duke Ferrante of Naples led a counterattack. The army was pushed back to Otranto and majority of the Ottoman Army sailed away. However, they left a group of troops stationed at Otranto whilst the Greek Island of Rhodes was being captured. When the Island of Rhodes was abandoned, the Ottomans returned and continued fighting well into 1481. The occupation of Italian lands so close to the main altar of Christiandom caused a great level of concern and panic. Blame was shifted around in Italy. Venice people were acused of doing nothing and even accused of helping the Ottomans. In spite of the retention of Rhodes, fear of the Ottomans was now at the highest. Mehmet the Conqueror himself was said to be coming to Italy and the Pope considered fleeing to Avignon. Instead he asked for assistance. But what saved Italy from the Ottomans was only the eventual death of Mehmet in 1481. All Rights Reserved.

Churchill and the Bengal Famine
 
02:30
Remembering India’s Forgotten Holocaust An Indian politician has put Winston Churchill in the same category as some of “the worst genocidal dictators” of the 20th century because of his complicity in the Bengal Famine. Dr Shashi Tharoor, whose new book Inglorious Empire chronicles the atrocities of the British Empire, argued the former British Prime Minister’s reputation as a great wartime leader and protector of freedom was wholly miscast given his role in the Bengal famine which saw four million Bengalis starve to death. In 1943, up to four million Bengalis starved to death when Churchill diverted food to British soldiers and countries such as Greece while a deadly famine swept through Bengal. British policies under Winston Churchill killed nearly 4 million Indians in the 1943-44 Bengal Famine Would you like to support our channel?

How did ISLAM Spread to RUSSIA? - KJ Vids
 
04:15
How did ISLAM Spread to RUSSIA? - KJ Vids According to early Arab sources, Islam first entered the territory of modern Russia in the seventh century. In 737 C.E. the Muslim army achieved a victory over the Khazar Kingdom, the strongest military power in the region. The army was led by general Marwan, who later became Marwan II the last caliph of the Umayyad dynasty. With the success of Marwan II, the Northern Caucasus, as well as the lower Volga region became a part of the Umayyad Empire. The first autonomous Muslim region in Russia was the Bulghar Kingdom in the Middle Volga region. The ruler of the Bulghar, Bin Salki Belekvar, requested the Abbasid caliph, al-Muqtadir, to dispatch Islamic scholars to teach Islam. This autonomous state existed from the eighth century until its invasion by the Mongols in 1236 C.E. The next wave of the spread of Islam in Russia took place during the "Golden Horde" province of the Chenghizid Empire. Under the rule of Uzbek Khan (1312-42), Islam became the official religion of the entire kingdom ran by the Volga Bulghar. The territories of Christian subjects, such as the Russians, Armenians, Circassians and Crimean Greeks paid the "jizyah". These vassal states were never forced into the Golden Horde and were able to preserve their religion under Muslim rule. But the political status of Islam was due to be reversed drastically in the region by the mid-sixteenth century. The newly-established mighty Russian state under the Ivan IV (the Terrible), invaded the Kazan and Astra khan states. Over the next three centuries, Russia expanded into Muslim-inhabited lands of Siberia, the Caucasus and Central Asia. In 1859, Muslims of Dagestan lost their country to Tsarist Russia after 34 years of resistance under Imam Shamil (1797-1871). The Russian victory had a devastating impact on Caucasian Muslims. Thousands were deported to Siberia. Hundreds of thousands more were forced to flee to the Ottoman Empire. Russia’s conquest of Central Asia was completed in 1885. By the 20th century, Russia had over 14 million Muslims. From then on, Muslims were faced with coercive Christianization and Russification, which was central to Moscow’s policy. Unknown to many, Islam has a long history in Russia. Today there remains16-20 million Muslims in Russia. All Rights Reserved.

The GEOPOLITICS of RAMADHAN - KJ Vids
 
02:46
Ramadan for most people is a sacred month when Muslims around the world fast from dawn until dusk and pray at night. However, Ramadan has a much less talked about geopolitical dimension. Indeed, many key events have occurred during Ramadan. The Battle of Badr in 624, was the first war against the Islamic polity founded by the Prophet in which the Quraysh were defeated. The Conquest of Makkah in 632 was a turning point in world history. Islam had returned home to where it had begun. The Battle of Guadalete in 711, set into motion seven centuries of Muslim control over the Iberian peninsula (Spain). The Battle of Hattin in 1187, in which Saladin seized Jerusalem had been under Crusader control for nearly two centuries. The Battle of Ain Jalut in 1260, in which the Mamluk dynasty based in Egypt halted and reversed the Mongol invasion of Muslim lands. These facts have inspired Muslims to embrace Ramadhan as both a spiritual and politically significant month. In the modern era, Pakistanis attach great importance to the fact that their country was also created in Ramadhan in 1947 Ramadhan has also taken on a global economic dimension in the age of capitalism. Though fasting should result in less food consumption, spending increases during the month because of the festive Iftaar's. The month of Ramadan can hence pose challenges to governments in countries experiencing strains on food supply. Muslims give a lot in charity which helps to move a great deal of donations across borders, and helps feed millions of Muslims. Ramadhan is a month that boosts Muslims spirituality and motivates them to spread Islam. History has certainly proven this right. We hope you enjoyed and learn't something new from our video.

CORPORATE POWER V STATE POWER - KJ Vids
 
11:26
Who is more POWERFUL, CORPORATIONS OR STATES? Amazon is now worth $1,000,000,000,000, but how powerful are corporations like Amazon compared to States? It has become apparent that international relations are anything but a one-sided story of either state or corporate power. Globalisation has changed the rules of the game, empowering corporations but bringing back state power through new transnational state-corporate relations. International relations has become a giant three-dimensional chess game with states and corporations as intertwined actors. States using corporations to achieve geopolitical goals in an increasingly hostile environment, and powerful corporations perhaps using more aggressive strategies to extract profits in response. If this is where we’re heading, it could have a lasting impact on the world order.

Muhammed Al-Fatih and the Conquest of Constantinople
 
02:53
Muhammed Al-Fatih and the Conquest of Constantinople Prophet Muhammad ﷺ promised his followers in the Arabian Desert that they would one day conquer the most powerful and legendary city of the day, Constantinople. For centuries, it seemed like an impossible task. The city is incredibly well-defended, being a peninsula with a giant wall on it’s land side that deterred most conquerors. The city was laid siege to by Muslim armies during the Umayyad Caliphate, but those sieges were unable to defeat her mammoth walls. When the Ottoman Empire sprang up in the early 1300s as a small Turkish beylik in Western Anatolia, it threatened the security of the Byzantines and their capital, Constantinople. By the time Sultan Mehmed II takes the throne in 1451, the Ottomans have expanded to control land in both Europe and Asia, thus surrounding the city of Constantinople. Sultan Mehmed made it his goal from the moment he took the throne to finally capture the legendary city. He ordered the building of a fortress on the Bosporus Strait, north of Constantinople to control ship movement in and out of the city. To honor the Prophet who declared the Muslims would conquer Constantinople, Mehmed had the fortress built in a way that it’s shape spelled out “Muhammad” in Arabic when seen from above. On April 1st, 1453, Mehmed and his Ottoman army of over 100,000 soldiers arrived at the walls of Constantinople. The sight that greeted them must have been terrifying. The inner walls of Constantinople were 5 meters thick at their base and 12 meters high. 20 meters away from the inner wall was the outer wall, which was 2 meters thick and 8.5 meters tall. These walls had never been conquered in history, and numerous previous sieges by the Ottomans as well as the Umayyads during the caliphate of Mu’awiya in the 600s attested to that.

The GEOPOLITICS of KASHMIR | KJ VIDS
 
03:55
The GEOPOLITICS of KASHMIR China, India and Pakistan, all three of which are nuclear states, have vital strategic interests in Kashmir. Kashmir shares borders with Afghanistan, a country where South Asia meets Central Asia. Central Asia is a geographic bridge between Europe and other parts of Asia. Kashmir is a vital geographic component to China's Belt and Road Initiative and the China-Pakistan-Economic-Corridor (CPEC). Besides the benefits of connecting to Europe and elsewhere, there are other advantages in access to Central Asia. The region is home to huge natural resources, hydrocarbons and minerals, which both China and India are craving. Furthermore, the landlocked region’s consumer markets – a population of 70 million – are open for exploitation. Kashmir’s geographic accessibility to Central Asia – via Afghanistan – makes the position of Kashmir, very significant. Pakistan intends to use infrastructure built under the CPEC initiative to connect ‘directly by-land’ to both China and Central Asia. For its part, China wants to secure access to the Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean via CPEC to avoid naval blockades. China’s access to the Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean would ensure a Chinese naval presence close to India’s waters. India also wants to create a trade route linking Afghanistan, Central Asia, Russia and Europe. Currently, India have to sail through the Arabian Sea to reach Iranian ports from which freight then proceeds over land. But India's regional connectivity plans known as the "International North-South Corridor" are time-consuming and costly. If it wasn't for Pakistan-Kashmir which stands between India-administered Kashmir and Afghanistan, India would have had a ‘direct by-land’ route access to Afghanistan, Central Asia, Russia, and Europe. As well as trade routes, the glacial waters that flow via Kashmir provide water and electricity to a billion people in India. Pakistan also relies heavily on glacial waters flowing from the region to prop up its agricultural sector. With an increased need for electricity, India has looked to the region to develop more hydro facilities. Pakistan fears that India may divert water necessary for irrigation, and use water as a weapon against Pakistan. Kashmir is thus a major national security issue for both nations, the control of which could pose an existential threat to the other. Kashmir will remain a major national security for both India and Pakistan, as well as play a critical role for China. All Rights Reserved.

Is POLAND becoming a REGIONAL POWER? - KJ Vids
 
11:22
As Europe becomes more divided, the economic and security benefits that partner countries of the European Union expect and have generally received, seems more and more uncertain by the day. This is particularly the case for some Eastern and Central European countries such as Poland. As we enter a multi-polar world, where the global balance of power is distributed amongst multiple nations, particularly in the Eastern World, nations have become more concerned about their national security than ever before. This is the case in Poland which has historically been occupied by both of its neighbours, Germany and Russia. I'm Kasim, this is KJ Vids and in this video, we will talk about the rise of Poland as a regional European power.

Ibn BATTUTA – The Greatest EXPLORER of All time - KJ Vids
 
03:57
Ibn Battuta – The Greatest Explorer of All time Born in Tangier, Morocco, Ibn Battuta came of age in a family of Islamic judges. In 1325, at age 21, he left his homeland for the Middle East. He intended to complete his hajj—the Muslim pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca—but he also wished to study Islamic law along the way. Battuta began his journey riding solo on a donkey, but soon linked up with a pilgrim caravan as it snaked its way east across North Africa. In Egypt, Battuta studied Islamic law and toured Alexandria and the metropolis of Cairo, which he called “peerless in beauty and splendor.” He then continued on to Mecca, where he took part in the hajj. Having completed his pilgrimage, he decided to continue wandering the Muslim world, or “Dar al-Islam.” Battuta claimed to be driven by a dream in which a large bird took him on its wing and “made a long flight towards the east…and left me there.” Battuta’s next few years were a whirlwind of travel. He joined a caravan and toured Persia and Iraq, and ventured north to what is now Azerbaijan. Following a sojourn in Mecca, he trekked across Yemen and made a sea voyage to the Horn of Africa. From there, he visited the Somali city of Mogadishu before dipping below the equator and exploring the coasts of Kenya and Tanzania. Upon leaving Africa, Battuta hatched a plan to travel to India, where he hoped to secure a lucrative post as a “qadi,” or Islamic judge. He followed a winding route east, first cutting through Egypt and Syria before sailing for Turkey. From Turkey, Battuta crossed the Black Sea and entered the domain of a Golden Horde Khan known as Uzbeg. Battuta next traveled east across the Eurasian steppe before entering India via Afghanistan and the Hindu Kush. Muhammad Tughluq, a Sultan in Delhi, made Battuta as his envoy to the Mongol court of China. After making a stopover in Sri Lanka, he rode merchant vessels through Southeast Asia. In 1345, four years after first leaving India, he arrived at the bustling Chinese port of Quanzhou. He finally turned around and journeyed home to Morocco, arriving back in Tangier in 1349. He then embarked on a multi-year excursion across the Sahara to the Mali Empire, where he visited Timbuktu. Battuta had never kept journals during his adventures, but when he returned to Morocco for good in 1354, the country’s sultan ordered him to compile a travelogue. He spent the next year dictating his story to a writer named Ibn Juzayy. The result was an oral history called A Gift to Those Who Contemplate the Wonders of Cities and the Marvels of Traveling, better known as the Rihla (or “travels”). Following the completion of the Rihla, Ibn Battuta all but vanished from the historical record. He is believed to have worked as a judge in Morocco and died sometime around 1368, but little else is known about him. It appears that after a lifetime spent on the road, the great wanderer was finally content to stay in one place.

Why is RUSSIA interested in LIBYA? - KJ Vids

Russia is among the countries that are backing General Haftar. Apart from political support, which has become clear with the General’s multiple visits to Moscow and his contacts with Russian officials, the Kremlin is offering more practical forms of assistance. Russia has delivered food supplies, has printed money to be used in the territories he controls, and finally has provided limited military support. This mainly came in the form of arms supplies and of Russian private military companies operating in Libya, whose ties with the Kremlin are virtually certain. But what does the Kremlin really want in North Africa?

ALLAMA IQBAL: An Intellectual Giant - KJ Vids
 
03:22
Allama Iqbal was born in November 1877, in Sialkot, a small city in British ruled Punjab. His father was a devoutly religious man and Iqbal attained the basic education of the deen from a local madrassa. He studied Philosophy and Law in England before completing his doctorate in Germany. Prior to this educational sojourn to Europe, Iqbal had been a talented yet typical poet, writing about abstract notions such as love, freedom and nationalism. In fact his poem, Saray Jahan se Acha, Hindustan Hamara (Our India is the best in the world) continues to retain its popularity in modern day India. With this mindset, he travelled to Europe in 1905 enrolling at Trinity College, Cambridge University. It was in England, and his subsequent stay in Munich until 1908, that Iqbal began to appreciate the true beauty and comprehensive nature of the deen of Allah SWT. He famously wrote in his poem Tulu-e-Islam (The Rise of Islam), “Muslman ko Muslman kar diya Toofan-e-Maghrib ne” (the Muslim was solidified in Islam by the storm of the West), having been afforded a first-hand look at the thought and behaviour of the Europeans. It is tempting to detail all of his musings upon Islam but the limitations of discourse do not allow such expansive rhetoric. This piece will look at a select few poems and writings, trying to deduce Iqbal’s vision of Islam as a comprehensive system of governance and life. In this arena, the subjects of secularism, democracy, capitalism, Muslim fraternity and nationalism will be highlighted in the vision of Iqbal. It must be acknowledged that he did not possess a flawless ideology upon the deen’s governance and he did attempt to formulate an aligning exercise within the deen and the modern systems of governance. In his essay on Islamic Political Thought, he detailed the dangers of both secularism and theocracy. He was acutely aware of allowing the monastic mullahs total control over the political process and warned against this practice in a vociferous manner. Nevertheless, his writings upon the concepts used to disease this ummah, namely nationalism, democracy, secularism and capitalism were unequivocal and beautifully constructed. Central to this thought pattern is Iqbal’s staunch belief that there was no dichotomy between the deen of Allah and mainstream politics, one not being complete or correct without the other. A couplet from his collection of poems, Bal-e-Jibril, states “Jalal-e-badshahi ho ya jamhoori tamasha ho; Juda ho deen siyasat se to reh jati hey changezi” (whether it is the royalty of the Kings, or the facade of the democrats; if you separate the deen from politics, you are left with the barbarism of Ghenghis Khan). In fact, this secular ideology was the driving factor behind his interest and involvement in political Islam. In his address to the conference of the All-India Muslim League in 1930, he stated “politics have their roots in the spiritual life of man. It is my belief that Islam is not a matter of private opinion. It is a society. It is because present day political ideas, that appear to be shaping themselves in India (Muslim), may affect its original structure and character that I find myself interested in politics“.

Mansa Musa - The Richest Man That Ever Lived
 
02:52
Meet Mansa Musa - The Richest Muslim That Ever Lived According to historians, the richest man to have ever lived was a Malian Muslim named Mansa Musa With an inflation adjusted fortune of $400 billion, Mansa Musa I would have been considerably richer than the world’s current richest man, Carlos Slim, who ranks in 22nd place with a relatively paltry $68 billion. His country's production of more than half the world's supply of salt and gold contributed to Musa's vast wealth, which he used to build large mosques that still stand today. Musa ruled over Mali from 1312 till 1337 and caught the attention of Europeans and Arabs after his renown Hajj to Mecca in 1324. As a devoted Muslim, Mansa Musa prepared his pilgrimage soon after he took his position from Abu Bakri II in 1312.

Who was Mawlana SAYYID Abu Al-`ala MAWDUDI? - KJ Vids
 
02:33
Mawlana Sayyid Abu Al-`ala Mawdudi stands as one of the leading Islamic figures of the twentieth century. Mawdudi’s ideological contributions have made him a towering figure in modern Islamic thought. His political and religious vision of Islam have gained widespread currency in Pakistan, as well as in the broader Middle East, North Africa, and throughout Central, South, and Southeast Asia. Not only a political theorist, he was a well-known translator and commentator of the Qur'an; a best-selling author; a frequently jailed political activist; and the founder of Islamic party, Jamaat-ti Islami. Born in 1903 to a religious family in Hyderabad Deccan, India, Mawdudi began his career as a journalist, ascending in his early twenties to the editorship of al-Jamiah , the newspaper of India’s leading Muslim clerical organization. He went on to assume the editorship of Tarjuman al-Qur'an (Interpreter of the Qur'an ), which he used as a platform to advocate for a uniquely Islamic way of life and against the influences of the West, which he believed had captivated the Muslims of India. Mawdudi’s emphasis became increasingly political following the landmark Indian elections in 1937 and the growing agi- tation against British rule by Hindu and Muslim leaders. Mawdudi’s ideas were grounded in the historical context in which he wrote. First the dismantling of the Mughal empire in 1857 and then the formal abolishment of the Ottoman caliphate after World War I fueled feelings of powerlessness among the Muslims of India. In 1941 he founded the Jama`at-i Islami, a party he would lead for the next three decades until in death in 1979. Although Mawdudi opposed the formation of Pakistan, following the partition of 1947 he became the leading advocate for political Islam in Pakistan, debating over the nature of the constitution and participating actively in electoral politics. Mawdudi’s most fundamental contributions was championing the idea that Islam constitutes a nizam-i zindagi —a complete system of life that is an ideology, a civilization, and a legal-political order. Both in his political writings and in his widely read Tahfim al-Qur'an , he built his argument on the need for an Islamic political system and to channel devotions into a broader revolutionary agenda. His legacy arguably is that he was able to convince large sections of the middle class of the role politics and Islam- which still resonates today in modern Pakistan.

When the Ottoman Caliphate Saved Britain
 
03:03
When the Ottoman Caliphate Saved Britain From her accession to the throne in 1558, Queen Elizabeth began seeking diplomatic, commercial and military ties with Muslim rulers. In 1570, when it became clear that Protestant England would not return to the Catholic faith, the pope excommunicated Elizabeth and called for her to be stripped of her crown. Soon the might of Catholic Spain was against her, an invasion was imminent. English merchants were prohibited from trading with the rich markets of the Spanish Netherlands. Economic and political isolation threatened to destroy the newly Protestant country. Elizabeth responded by reaching out to the Ottoman Caliphate. Spain’s only rival was the Ottoman Empire ruled by Sultan Murad III. The Ottomans had been fighting the Hapsburgs for decades, conquering parts of Hungary. Elizabeth hoped that an alliance with the Sultan would provide much needed relief from Spanish military aggression and enable her merchants to tap into the lucrative markets of the East. The Caliphate was far more powerful than Elizabeth’s little Island nation floating in the soggy mists off Europe. Elizabeth wanted to explore her new trade alliances, but couldn’t afford to finance them. Her response was to exploit the obscure commercial innovation – joint stock companies. The capital from the companies was used to fund the costs of commercial voyages. Elizabeth enthusiastically backed the Muscovy company which traded with Persia and went on to inspire the formation of a company that traded with the Ottomans and the East India Company which would eventually conquer India. In the 1580s she signed a commercial agreement with the Ottomans that would last over 300 years granting her merchants free commercial access to Ottoman lands. As money poured in, Elizabeth began writing letters to her Muslim counterparts extolling the benefits of reciprocal trade. She wrote as a supplicant, calling Murad “The most mighty ruler of the Kingdom of Turkey, sole and above all, and most sovereign monarch of the East Empire.” She also played on their mutual hostility to Catholicism, describing herself as “the most invincible and most mighty defender of the Christian faith against all kind of idolatries.” Thousands of English traders crossed many of today’s regions, like Aleppo and Mosul which were far safer than they would have been on a journey through Catholic Europe where they risked falling into the hands of the Inquisition. Some Englishman even converted to Islam such as Samson Rowlie, a Norfolk merchant who became Hassan Aga. English aristocrats delighted in the silks and spices of the East, exchanged it for munitions that were shipped out to Turkey. The sugar, silks, carpets and spices transformed what the English ate, how they decorated their homes and how they dressed. Despite the commercial success, the British economy was unable to sustains its reliance on far-flung trade.

Can MEXICO become a REGIONAL POWER? - KJ Vids
 
11:19
Mexico is a vast country with a large population and a good economic potential. However, its development is severely hampered by widespread corruption, especially the activities of the powerful cartels. This is hampering Mexico’s growth and is preventing it from becoming a regional power. Moreover, the recent troubles in the relations with the US are also slowing its rise.

Is AMERICA in DECLINE as the SUPERPOWER of the WORLD? - KJ Vids
 
13:21
Since the end of WWII, the U.S. has been the central player in the international system, leading in the creation of new international organisations like the United Nations, NATO, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. American diplomacy has dominated multinational agreements on trade, climate, regional security and arms control. Since the Soviet Union officially collapsed in 1991 there is no doubt that America has been the unilateral superpower of the world. But now not only do China and Russia contest America’s global role, a growing number of other countries are asserting an independent and increasingly influential role in regional economic and security developments. I’m Kasim, this is KJ Vids and in this video, we will look at America’s decline as the superpower of the world.

The HISTORY of UYGHUR Muslims - KJ Vids
 
05:02
Uyghurs are predominately Turkic-speaking Sunni Muslims who live primarily in the autonomous region of Xinjiang. Islam came to the region in the 10th century. Prior to Islam, the Uyghurs embraced Buddhism, Shamanism, and Manicheism. Uyghurs embraced Islam in 934 during the Karahanid Kingdom. Kashgar, the capital of the Kingdom, quickly became one of the major learning centers of Islam. Art, the sciences, music and literature flourished as Islamic religious institutions nurtured the pursuit of an advanced culture. In this period, hundreds of world-renowned Uyghur scholars emerged. Thousands of valuable books were written. Among these works include the Uyghur scholar Yusuf Has Hajip's book, The Knowledge for Happiness and Mahmud Kashgari's dictionary of Turk languages. Uyghurs played an important role in cultural exchanges between the East and West and developed a unique culture and civilization of their own based on Islam. The Islamic Uyghur Kingdom of East Turkestan maintained its independence and prosperity until the Manchu Empire invaded the nation in 1876. After eight years of bloody war, the Manchu Empire formally annexed East Turkestan into its territories and renamed it "Xinjiang" (meaning "New Frontier") on November 18, 1884. Xinjiang is roughly the size of Iran and borders several Muslim-majority countries, including Afghanistan and Pakistan. After Chinese Nationalists overthrew the Manchu Empire in 1911, East Turkestan fell under the rule of the nationalist Chinese government. The Uyghurs, who wanted to free themselves from foreign domination, staged numerous uprisings against Nationalist Chinese rule and twice (once in 1933 and again in 1944) succeeded in setting up an independent East Turkestan Republic. The Uyghur Muslims have little desire to assimilate into Han society due to their strong attachment to their cultural practises of Islam. Their reluctance to do so is met with reactions ranging from chauvinism to claims of ingratitude by the Han elite. For over a decade, under the guise of counterterrorism and ‘anti-separatism’ efforts, the government maintains a pervasive system of ethnic discrimination against Uighurs Muslims and sharply curbs their Islamic practises and expression. China is accused of encouraging internal migration into the Xinjiang province to increase the non-Uyghur population and power in the region. The overall effect of the Communist Party of China’s policies in the last six decades is unmistakable and stunning. The Han population in the region increased at an average rate of 8.1 per cent yearly, from 5 per cent in 1947 to around 40 per cent in 2000. Officially the 2010 Census puts the Xinjiang population at 45.8 per cent Uyghur and 40.5 per cent Han, with Kazakh, Hui, and other ethnicities making up the rest. In recent years, there have been many reports of students, teachers, and civil servants have been forbidden from fasting during Ramadan, forbidden from wearing their traditional dress and even keeping a beard. Uyghurs continue to be the only population in China consistently subjected to executions for political crimes, and these executions are often both summary and public. With the rise of China as the expected superpower of the 21st century, such repressive policies against the Uyghur Muslims are likely to get worse. That’s it guys, thanks for watching another KJ Vid.

AMERICA'S $500 BILLION move on CHINA - KJ Vids
 
12:04
Over the past 2 years, trade tensions between the US and China have been at an all time high. Both sides have fought in trade with damaging consequences for the global economy, and despite recent hopes that a new deal would be reached between the 2 economic superpowers, that confidence was diminished on the 5th of May, by President Donald Trump who is to impose more tariffs on Chinese imports.
