[1]

Paradoxically, as the Ottoman empire became the last great Muslim power, and its sultan the Khalifa, the state proved unable to stem the rising power of Russia north of the Black Sea This policy was expressed in much official deference to Islam and to religious leaders and in an officially sponsored religious propaganda that at times assumed a "pan-Islamic" form by appealing to Muslim solidarity outside the Ottoman Empire.

[1] The decline of Ottoman influence in Arabia, 1750-1914, was paralleled by the rise of the Saudi state, which was helped by the British and the Russians, who wanted to increase their colonial influence in the Muslim world by undermining the influence of the Ottoman Empire as the leader of Islam. [1] They distorted the collapse of Ottoman Empire, escape of Sultan, declaration of Turkish republic, change of alphabet etc. and declared Ataturk as deccal and against Islam. [1] Sultan Mehmed renamed the city Istanbul, meaning "the city of Islam" and made it the new capital of the Ottoman Empire. [1] Stone also pointed out that despite the fact that Sunni Islam was the state religion, the Eastern Orthodox Church was supported and controlled by the Ottoman state, and in return to accepting that control became the largest land-holder in the Ottoman Empire. [2] After a short war the Ottoman Empire took control of Egypt and Syria as well as the three most important cities in Islam, Mecca, Medina, and Jerusalem. [1] With the Fall of Constantinople in 1453, the Ottoman Empire spread its influence, especially its religion of Islam, into and through Europe. [1] This is the reason why, on this occasion in particular, I find it suitable to briefly pen down the history of Islam, chiefly the vast and mighty Ottoman Empire so that we remember our worthy ancestors and pray to Almighty Allah that the Muslim countries get united and, in the light of the verses of the Holy Quran and sayings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), render services for the Muslim Ummah and the human race.

The reign of Sultan Abdülmecid was marked by the implementation of the Tanzimat reforms; the Crimean War and first foreign debt of the Ottoman Empire in 1854 (the payments of which were completed by the Republic of Turkey a century later, in 1954); and the Treaty of Paris (1856) which secured Ottoman control over the Balkan peninsula and the Black Sea basin until the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-1878. [1] The Ottoman Empire (1299 - 1923) was a multi-ethnic empire based on Islamic political principles, which at its greatest extent controlled the lands of Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa approximately corresponding with (though somewhat larger than) those of the Byzantine Empire The first picture here shows the toilet of the Padishah Emperor, the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, the ruler of all the Middle East, northern Africa, and south-east Europe.

The Ottoman Empire was a Moslem Turkish state that encompassed Anatolia, Southeastern Europe, the Arab Middle East and North Africa from the 14C to the early 20C. Founded by Turkish tribes against the Byzantine control of Anatolia, the Ottoman Empire rose to be the dominant Islamic power in the world, capturing Constantinople and spreading across the Mediterranean.

The Ottoman Empire lasted for over six hundred years (1299-1923) and encompassed what is modern-day Turkey, the Balkans and the Fertile Crescent. [1]

Ottoman Empire Controlled North Africa, parts of Middle East, Turkey, and Balkan Peninsula As it weakened European powers competed to take its lands Reasons. [1] The Crimean War (1853-1856) was part of this long-running contest between the major European powers for influence over territories of the Empire and focused on the rights of Christian minorities in the Holy Land, which was a part of the Ottoman Empire. [1]

Recently, more note has been taken of the fact that the Ottoman Empire was still a formidable military and political power throughout the seventeenth century, and that noticeable though limited economic recovery followed the crisis of the years around 1600; after the crisis of the 1683-99 war, there followed a longer and more decisive economic upswing. [2] The Ottoman Empire stood at the crossroads of three continents - Europe, Asia, and Africa - and was the single most important and influential Islamic power in early modern times and well into the twentieth century. [1] Constantinople was attacked in the 15th century by a new power, a powerful Islamic state called the Ottoman Empire. [1] Ottoman Empire -- Tracing its origins to the end of the 13th century, the Ottoman Empire at its zenith was one of the greatest Islamic states in history. [1]

When the Ottoman Empire was restored under Sultan Mehmed I, the Turkish notables, in order to deprive the sultan of the only military force he could use to resist their control, required him to abandon the kapıkulu, justifying the action on the basis of the Islamic tradition that Muslims could not be kept in slavery. [1] The Turkish National Movement encompasses the political and military activities of the Turkish revolutionaries that resulted in the creation and shaping of the modern Republic of Turkey as a consequence of the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in World War I and the subsequent occupation of Constantinople and partitioning of the Ottoman Empire by the Allies under the terms of the Armistice of Mudros. [1] The Ottoman Empire ( /ˈɒtəmən/ ; Ottoman Turkish : دولت عليه عثمانیه‎ ‎, Devlet-i ʿAlīye-i ʿOsmānīye, literally The Exalted Ottoman State ; Modern Turkish : Osmanlı İmparatorluğu or Osmanlı Devleti ; also historically known in Western Europe as the Turkish Empire, Ottoman Turkey or simply Turkey ) was an empire founded at the end of the 13th century in northwestern Anatolia in the town of Söğüt (modern-day Bilecik Province ) by the Oghuz Turkish tribal leader Osman. [1] The Ottoman Empire - 7837 Words The Ottoman Empire The Ottoman Empire, also historically referred to as the Turkish Empire or Turkey, was a state founded by Turkish tribes under Osman Bey in north-western Anatolia in 1299. [1] Abdülmecid II, the last Ottoman caliph, also lacked a tughra of his own, since he did not serve as head of state (that position being held by Mustafa Kemal, President of the newly founded Republic of Turkey) but as a religious and royal figurehead. d ^ : The Ottoman Interregnum, also known as the Ottoman Triumvirate ( Turkish : Fetret Devri ), was a period of chaos in the Ottoman Empire which lasted from 1402 to 1413. [1] The Ottoman Empire ( /ˈɒtəmən/ ; Devlet-i ʿAlīye-i ʿOsmānīye ), also historically known in Western Europe as the Turkish Empire or simply Turkey, was a state that controlled much of southeastern Europe, western Asia and northern Africa between the 14th and early 20th centuries. [2] The successor state of the Ottoman Empire is now one of the largest armies in the world, and the second largest army within NATO. Although the modern Turkish army was established and grew strong after the fall of the Ottoman Empire, the military legacy is still clear. [1] The Ottoman Empire, which had started as a small Turkic state in Anatolia in the early fourteenth century, emerged in the second half of the fifteenth century as a major military and political force. [1] The state grew rapidly, taking territory from fellow Turkic tribes in Anatolia, Greek city states along the coast of Turkey and the Balkans, and Slavic Osman's Dream: The History of the Ottoman Empire, is a blow-by-blow account of the rise and fall of one of the world's most interesting Empires. [1] The Ottoman Empire lasted for over six hundred years (1299-1923) and encompassed what is modern-day Turkey, the Balkans and all of the Arab-speaking nation states. [1]

None the less, by the 18th century the Ottoman Empire had reached a state of stagnation as economic power moved west onto the European continent, and by the 19th century the Ottoman Empire was earning a nickname across Europe as "the sick old man’. [1] During the 16th and 17th centuries, at the height of its power under the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent, the Ottoman Empire was a multinational, multilingual empire controlling most of Southeast Europe, parts of Central Europe, Western Asia, parts of Eastern Europe and the Caucasus, North Africa, and the Horn of Africa. [2] During the height of its power, which happened during the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent, (5) the Ottoman Empire encompassed a huge portion of the Middle East as well as Eastern Europe, including Greece and Hungary and it ruled for more than 600 years. [1] During its height of power in the 16th and 17th centuries, the Ottoman Empire was a multinational and multicultural empire controlling a majority of the Middle East and Southern Europe (including countries such as Greece and parts of present-day Italy), the Caucuses, and Northern Africa. [1] The first picture here shows the toilet of the Padishah Emperor, the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, the ruler of all the Middle East, northern Africa, and south-east Europe. [1] After reading the fascinating initial chapter of Eugene Rogan’s new history of the Ottoman Empire in the First World War, The Fall of the Ottomans: The Great War in the Middle East, I was struck with a recurring thought: The wonder is not so much that this sprawling 600-year-old Muslim empire fell victim to the convulsions of world conflict in 1918, but that it somehow managed to survive at all as a world power up to the war’s opening salvos. [1] "The Sultan and the Queen" explores a less-well-known aspect of Elizabethan history, namely England’s nascent commercial and political relationships with the Muslim powers of the day: the Ottoman Empire, Persia and Morocco. [1] Eastern Question : In diplomatic history, this refers to the strategic competition and political considerations of the European Great Powers in light of the political and economic instability in the Ottoman Empire from the late 18th to early 20th centuries. [1] Changing political conditions in Europe, after the Italian and German unification, had long signaled a shift in the European balance of power, leaving the Ottoman Empire to its fate. [1] With the political, economical, and military rise of both the Catholic and Orthodox Europe, the Ottoman Empire began to lose its dominant power. [1] As the Ottoman Empire gradually shrank in size, military power and wealth, many Balkan Muslims migrated to the empire's remaining territory in the Balkans or to the heartland in Anatolia. [1] As the Ottoman Empire gradually shrank in size, some 7-9 million Muslims from its former territories in the Caucasus, Crimea, Balkans, and the Mediterranean islands migrated to Anatolia and Eastern Thrace. [2] In 1400-1401 he conquered Aleppo, Damascus and eastern Anatolia, in 1401 he destroyed Baghdad and this made Timur the most preeminent Muslim ruler of the time, as the Ottoman Empire plunged into civil war. [1] The Armenian élite and various militant groups sought to improve and defend the mostly rural Armenian population of the eastern Ottoman Empire from the Muslims, but the ultimate goal was the creation of an Armenian state in the Armenian-populated areas controlled at the time by the Ottoman Empire and the Russian Empire. [1]

The military victories and the expansion of boundaries of Ottoman Empire raised the dream and possibility of a worldwide Islamic state among the theocratic philosophers, a process that actually replaced territorial nationalism in most Middle East territories with a kind of Pan-Islamic loyalty that has been one of the greatest defining characteristics of the Middle East mindset till date. [1] The Ottoman Empire spread Islamic influence throughout the Middle East until its downfall in 1923 after the First World War and the Turkish War of Independence. [1] Several historians such as British historian Edward Gibbon and the Greek historian Dimitri Kitzikis have argued that after the fall of Constantinople, the Ottoman state took over the machinery of the Roman state, and that in essence the Ottoman Empire was a continuation of the Eastern Roman Empire under a thin Turkish Islamic guise. [2] With Constantinople as its capital city, and vast control of lands around the eastern Mediterranean during the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent (ruled 1520 to 1566), the Ottoman Empire was, in many respects, an Islamic successor to the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire. [1] This was when The Ottoman Empire started becoming a powerful empire until the 1920's when this Turk Islamic Roman Empire reorganized! Ottoman Empire- Turks (Eastern Turkey), Arabs, Byzantine Italians (Western Turkey), Greeks, Egyptians, Hungarians and Etc. [1] By the late 18th century, a number of defeats in several wars with Russia led some people in the Ottoman Empire to conclude that the reforms of "Deli Petro" ( Peter the Mad, as Peter the Great was known in Turkey) had given the Russians an edge, and the Ottomans would have to keep up with Western technology in order to avoid further defeats. [1] The Crusades led directly to the Turkish wars of later centuries, in which the Ottoman Empire expanded into the Balkans and threatened the very heart of Europe. [1] OTTOMAN EMPIRE -- OTTOMAN EMPIRE, Balkan and Middle Eastern empire started by a Turkish tribe, led by ʿUthmān (1288-1326), at the beginning of the 14th century. [1] After the mid-16th century, Maghreb, east of Morocco, was loosely under the control of the Turkish Ottoman Empire. [1] Mehmet II ( Ottoman Turkish : محمد الثانى Meḥmed-i s ānī, Turkish : II. Mehmet ), (also known as el-Fatih (الفاتح), "the Conqueror", in Ottoman Turkish, or, in modern Turkish, Fatih Sultan Mehmet ) (March 30, 1432, Edirne - May 3, 1481, Hünk rcayırı, near Gebze ) was Sultan of the Ottoman Empire ( Rûm until the conquest) for a short time from 1444 to September 1446, and later from February 1451 to 1481. [1] Mahmud II (Ottoman Turkish: محمود ثانى Mahmud-u sānī, محمود عدلى Mahmud-u Âdlî) (Turkish: II. Mahmud) (20 July 1785 – 1 July 1839) was the 30th Sultan of the Ottoman Empire from 1808 until his death in 1839. [1] Descendants of the Jandarid dynasty live today as Citizens of the Turkish Republic mostly in Istanbul and in Europe, ayşe Sultan, who was the last identified descendant of the Jandarid dynasty having benefited from the status offered by the Ottoman Empire to the dynasty, died 1981 in Ankara. [1] They dominated much of Anatolia, the Balkans, the Near East and North Africa until the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire after World War I. The Ottomans are famous for their domed architecture and pencil minarets, many of which were built by the great architect, Sinan (1539-1588) for Sultan Süleyman (r. 1520-66). [1] At its greatest extent, the Ottoman Empire covered an enormous territory, including Anatolia, the Balkan region in Europe, most of the Arabic-speaking Middle East, and all of North Africa except for Morocco. [1] The Ottoman Empire was an empire lasting from 1299--1923 AD, centered in modern-day Turkey and spanning at its height across much of eastern Europe, the Middle East, and northern Africa. [1] At its height, the Ottoman Empire extended across three continents: Western Asia ( Middle East ), Eastern Europe, and Northern Africa. [1] The Ottoman Empire ruled a large portion of the Middle East and Eastern Europe for over 600 years. [1] The Ottoman Empire began to decline around the year 1700, losing control of many of its lands and falling behind Europe in economic, military and scientific progress. [1] Starting in the 16th century, however, the Ottoman Empire incrementally lost its economic and military superiority in comparison to Europe, which had developed rapidly with the Renaissance, with its conquest of new territories and its access to raw materials, and with the Industrial Revolution. [1] Still one of the five continental Great Powers by the turn of the 20th century, the Ottoman Empire was "the Sick Man of Europe", with its many minority populations pushing for independence. [1] Around the 15th and the 16th century, the Ottoman Empire included a large area of land in Europe, Asia, and Africa. [1] From its emergence as an empire in the fourteenth century, the Ottoman Empire conquered and expanded its reign throughout Europe, Asia, and Africa until its fall in the nineteenth century. [1] Ottoman Empire Timeline Timeline Description: The Ottoman Empire started in what is now Turkey and reached out to parts of Europe, Africa, and Asia. [1] The Republic of Turkey, which was officially proclaimed on 29 October 1923, became one of the successor states of the Ottoman Empire as part of the treaty. [1] The Ottoman Empire was a crucial part of the European states system and actively played a role in their affairs, due in part to their coterminous periods of development. [1] Although the Ottoman Empire was weak in comparison with the European Great Powers, it remained a significant international actor whose independent decisions could materially influence the interests and behavior of more powerful states. [1] Comparing the Rise of the Modern State in the Ottoman Empire and Western Europe Comparing the Rise of the Modern State in the Ottoman Empire and Western Europe The Ottoman Empire was one of great power and splendor. [1] The Ottoman Empire was not the program of economic exploitation, like the colonial empires of the modern Europe states. [1] The state organisation of the Ottoman Empire was a very simple system that had two main dimensions: the military administration and the civil administration The modernization of the Ottoman Empire in the nineteenth century started with the military. [1] At the beginning of the seventeenth century, the Ottoman Empire remained the most powerful single state in the world in terms of both military and economic capability. [1] Thanks to these works, the conventional narrative of Ottoman history - that in the late sixteenth century the Ottoman Empire entered a prolonged period of decline marked by steadily increasing military decay and institutional corruption - has been discarded. [2] The military of the Ottoman Empire remained an effective fighting force until the second half of the eighteenth century, when it suffered a catastrophic defeat against Russia in the 1768-74 war. [1] The Ottoman Empire claimed their Sultan, to be the Caliph after the Ottomans defeated the Abbasids (by that point weakened by war with the Mongols on one side and the Ottomans on the other side) in Egypt in the 16th century. [1] The reign of Sultan Abdülmecid was marked by the implementation of the Tanzimat reforms; the Crimean War and first foreign debt of the Ottoman Empire in 1854. [1] Circassians first came to Syria following a forced migration from their original homeland in the Caucasus Mountains to the Balkan and Anatolia regions of the Ottoman Empire after Russia defeated them in the Caucasian War (1817-64). [1] Ottoman Empire, empire created by Turkish tribes in Anatolia (Asia Minor) that grew to be one of the most powerful states in the world during the 15th and 16th centuries. [1] The Ottoman Empire, also known as the Turkish Empire, was founded at the end of the 13th century in northwestern Anatolia in the vicinity of Bilecik and Söğüt by the Oghuz Turkish tribal leader Osman. [1] Ottoman Empire -- a former Turkish empire that was founded about 1300 by Osman and reached its greatest territorial extent under Suleiman in the 16th century; collapsed after World War I. Cap.: Constantinople. [1] The Ottoman Empire (Turkish: Osmanl mparatorluu) was an imperial power that existed from 1299 to 1923 (634 years), one of the largest empires to rule the borders of the Mediterranean Sea. [1] Reaching over 2 million square miles, the Ottoman Empire grew from a series of Turkish tribes into one of the dominant powers in the world and a leading Islamic empire for centuries. [1] The rise of the Ottoman Empire correlates with the decline of the Roman empire, which shifted the power of a singular Christian European society to an Islamic influence. [1] The Eastern question, however, basically, centered around one issue: If and when the Ottoman Empire disappeared, what should happen to its territories (especially the European ones)¿ Each power approached the matter with the aim of ensuring maximum advantage. [1] For the first time, the Ottoman Empire surrendered control of significant European territories (many permanently), including Ottoman Hungary. [1] Edirne was the first major city that Europeans traveling to the Ottoman Empire reached--so building a large complex here offered the Sultan an opportunity to use architecture to impress the Ottoman Empire’s greatness upon visitors. [1] The new bridge across the Bosporus has been named for Yavuz Selim, the ninth Sultan to rule the Ottoman Empire, and the first to claim the title of Caliph, leader and protector of the world’s Muslims. [1] The Sultans of the Ottoman Empire (Turkish: Osmanl padiahlar), made up solely of the members of the Ottoman dynasty (House of Osman), rules over the transcontinental empire from its inception in 1299. [1] The Ottoman Empire officially ended at the close of the Turkish War of Independence in 1922 A.D. In its place, the Republic of Turkey was declared in 1923. [1] The Ottoman Empire started as a series of Turkish tribes, most of whom were waging war against the expansive Byzantine Empire in the Anatolian Peninsula. [1] The Ottoman Empire (Ottoman Turkish language: Devlet-i Aliye-i Osmaniye ; Turkish language (Modern Turkish): Osmanlı İmparatorluğu ) was an imperial power centered on the borders of the Mediterranean Sea that existed from 1281 (or 1299) to 1923. [1] The Ottoman Empire was a Moslem Turkish state that encompassed Anatolia, Southeastern Europe, the Arab Middle East and North Africa from the 14C to the early 20C. The successor state of the Ottoman Empire is now one of the largest armies in the world, and the second largest army within NATO. Although the modern Turkish army was established and grew strong after the fall of the Ottoman Empire, the military legacy is still clear. [1] The Ottoman Empire was a Moslem Turkish state that encompassed Anatolia, Southeastern Europe, the Arab Middle East and North Africa from the 14C to the early 20C. The Ottoman Empire was an empire lasting from 1299--1923 AD, centered in modern-day Turkey and spanning at its height across much of eastern Europe, the Middle East, and northern Africa.

[1] The Ottoman Empire was a Moslem Turkish state that encompassed Anatolia, Southeastern Europe, the Arab Middle East and North Africa from the 14C to the early 20C. When the Ottoman Empire was crumbling during World War II, Turkish forces massacred millions of their Bulgarian, Greek, Assyrian, Arab, and Armenian subjects. [1] The Ottoman Empire was a Moslem Turkish state that encompassed Anatolia, Southeastern Europe, the Arab Middle East and North Africa from the 14C to the early 20C. The fate of the Ottoman Empire was tied to the fate of the losing Central Powers. [1] The Ottoman Empire was a Moslem Turkish state that encompassed Anatolia, Southeastern Europe, the Arab Middle East and North Africa from the 14C to the early 20C. The defeat of these Central Powers led to the breakup and foreign occupation of the Ottoman Empire. [1] The Ottoman Empire was a Moslem Turkish state that encompassed Anatolia, Southeastern Europe, the Arab Middle East and North Africa from the 14C to the early 20C. Even then, it wouldn’t be until the 18th century that the Ottoman Empire really began to feel the pinch from Europe. [1] The Ottoman Empire was a Moslem Turkish state that encompassed Anatolia, Southeastern Europe, the Arab Middle East and North Africa from the 14C to the early 20C.
