49 thoughts on “Pan-European Sultanate: The road to Istanbul

  1. That is a brilliant idea, I have nothing against the Turks and I love them with all my heart. but shouldn't Saudi Arabia been doing that already? What are they waiting for? May Allah guide us.

  2. JazzakAllahu khayran, great talk, keep up the good discussions. Can you pls quote the hadith of uthman (r.a.) you mentioned? Before I heard the talk I thought the same way like Dr. Stef about the 30 days of Ramadan. Very interesting. BarrakAllahufeekum

  3. Moon sighting is calculated by the accuracy in Turkey which today technology can give you spot on for years a head.Plus there has been agreement in Organisation of Islamic Cooperation many times about this but suuds always acting like they are the leaders of the ummah and not complying with it and we know why and who and what the reason is behind this, and that is to divide ummah in every chance they can get…

  4. I agree with Dr. Stef Keris because Allaah says in the Quran, "Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves." in Surah 13, verse 11. First the people of Turkey has to return to Quran and Sunnah. After that Turkey can start becoming a more Islamic country and protect the rights of the muslims in the west.

  5. Creating a democratic system will not solve anything even erdigsn is a secular democratic ruler who is still under the European democratic system hence the blessing of allah cannot be achieved in this manner

  6. can you make a video about the turkmen diaspora?
    there are 5 milllion turkmens in afghanistan, around 5 million in turkmenistan, +7 million turkmens in iran, 5 million or more in iraq, 3 to 4 million in syria, 400000 in lebanon, hundreds of thousands in egypt,libya,tunisia etc and around 5 million turkmens in algieria
    they played important role in islam and are extremely religious
    turkmen sufis would preach islam in the sub continent and introduce islam to them and converted many

  7. As a Turk, yes our religion is important, however, our nationalism is what saved our people in the end. As much as I would've loved to have a caliphate, the arabs betrayed the empire and caused collapse. If not for ataturk, and unfortunately his secular point of view, we would'nt even have istanbul now

  8. In sha Allah, Allah liberate Baitul Muqadas ,Masjidul Aqsa and people of Falasteen and all Muslims oppressed all over the world

  9. Brothers, while I appreciate your logic and reasoning but does it. A plausible reality?
    And do we really require it when we have embassadorial missions of each Muslim countr throughout Europe.

  10. are you Az? we have to unite on Quran and Sunnah.
    Manhaj is the correct method or dawa order of setting the Aqidah and religion of Islam from the individual to the society – from one priority to the next, though all of Islam is important, and this is wisdom so we gain more then we lose. Example Surah Luqman says honor parents but not in shirk, or give sadaqa but to family first, etc. The hadith of Mua'dh Jabal explains this very well!

    Some ppl fail to emphasize the correct order of dawa has value, for example someone might say we follow the sunnah but then forget they are leaving out something more important which would of made a big difference.


    Tawhid, Sunna teach worship & unity from Objective Lawgiver, bida is man-made division & vacum filled with tyranny – paul removed laws so his farisis pay rulers to kill Isa as lobbies do today. Tawhid is tied to safety in Quran 24 :55, & clear Ilm in Qur'an 12 :108. Ext. taqlid is linked to shirk in Quran 9 :31. See Salafi lands level graves and are safe while sufi and shi'a lands elevate graves and teach extreme taqlid to push bida in the name of mathhabs which the mathhab imams said not to do and sadly face colonization….

    As Malik Shabazz aka Malc X said Oneness of Lord to = Oneness of Man.

    Tawhid is the first of the pillars of Iman of 6 to guide the individuals acts, an extension of the shahada the 1st of the 5 pillars in Islam to guide the community, and by seeking knowledge based on the correct hadith sciences we can ground firmly, build and guide with the correct manhaj or method in terms of priority implementing Islam from 1 issue to the next to gain more then we lose at every turn to the 5 protected pillars of shariah… however it starts with Tawhid…

    The Hadith of Jibril taught Muslims how to ground in their religion and direction…

    Tawhid generally is categorized into 3.

    Tawhid Rubbubiya / Oneness of Allah's Lordship – Acts & laws of Allah as Creator.

    Tawhid Ulluhiyah / Allah's sole right to be God or One served as He taught or worshipped.

    Tawhid Siffat / Correct learning of Allah's Attributes as Unique, Affirmed & Perfect!

    (Sufi Asharis and fake Hanafis take notes, Abu Hanifa was Salafi Athari in Tawhid)

    The way of being grounded is the way of the believer…

    Ka'b b. Malik reported on the authority of his father that the similitude of a believer is that of a standing crop. The wind sometimes shakes it and sometimes raises it up and then it comes to its destined end. And the similitude of a hypocrite is that of a cypress tree which is not affected by anything but is uprooted once for all.

    – Sahih Muslim 2810b

    Not being grounded in Salafiya for bida/desires is the way of the fallen…

    Narrated Thawban:

    The Prophet (ﷺ peace and blessings be upon him) said: The people will soon summon one another to attack you as people when eating invite others to share their dish. Someone asked: Will that be because of our small numbers at that time? He replied: No,… but you will be scum carried down by a torrent, and Allah will take fear of you from the breasts of your enemy and last enervation into your hearts. Someone asked: What is wahn (enervation). He replied: Love of the world and dislike of death.

    – Sunan Abi Dawud 4297 (Sahih Albani), Book Battles (Kitab Al-Malahim)

    In conclusion :

    Thawban narrated that the Messenger of Allah(peace and blessings be upon him) said:

    "I only fear for my Ummah from the misguiding A'immah." He said that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "There will never cease to be a group from my Ummah manifest upon the truth, they will not be harmed by those who forsake them until Allah's Decree comes."

    – Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2229, Chapters On Al-Fitan

  11. From over all conversation,I would say two most important points which needs to be done ASAP, 1-remove secularism from Turkey. 2- Unity of Ummah should be top priority.

  12. Mashallah, Dr Stef keris is right, this is the first time when an idea like this is discussed in such a way, I think we are witnessing the birth of a concept that can change the future condition of Muslims in the west and even in the world, in chaa Allah

  13. The location for the headquarters should be Sarajevo. The need the support and the location is in the center of Europe.

  14. Nationalism is racism is not secularism. Why should a Muslim not be proud to have a nation or belong to a nation. Nationalism is not racism.
    We are different nations ethical groups the question is to be United not to be same.

  15. When the Ottoman Turks ruled the Islamic world, did the Turks force Turkism on the rest of the muslim world, were other Muslims from Arab lands or Persian lands or Russian lands or Asian lands made to be Turkified, no they weren't, in actual fact even the Arab language was the primary language people spoke and wrote in, so the fact that Dr. Steph has even brought this up as a possible issue if the European Muslims excepted the Turks to be the guardian/protector of the Islamic realm is quite dis heartening and dissapointing as I thought Dr. Steph was an intelligent man. One thing that's for certain, Turks will always be staunch nationalists, they always have been for thousands of years, but know this, Turks who embrace Islam will always put Islam values and ideas before nationalism, the only type of Turk that won't do this is the Turk that has no Islam in their life or belief system.

  16. We moved towards the Khilaafah in the 1990s with the "Muslim Parliament" of Great Britain, but as soon as the leader died, the Parliament died with the new leader turning traitor!

  17. But what do you think of the reaction of the European governments themselves to such an idea as you are proposing, considering the French government's ultra nationalism at the moment and all the talk about 'islamo-leftist separatism'. Don't you think they would at best be quite jittery and at worse be very antagonistic and probably even work to torpedo such an idea from gaining any real success in Europe itself, no matter how much the Turks themselves Islamise or the native European Muslims themselves might look favourably towards such an idea.

  18. About the example of Madina and the 1st thing to do:
    the prophet demolished to concept of Nasarah are better than Muhajireen or Muhajereen better than Nasarah. So he PBUH had took down that nationalism and tribalism by bothering them.
    So is means Turkey need to do the same and bother with others Muslims and to drop and sacrify its own nationalism pride, or it's going to turn to be just an temporary union that would end up on catasprophy. That's the 1st thing 1st.

  19. Please use the name Constantinople, not Istanbul. Since That's What Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. called it.

  20. We need the Ottoman Empire to take it's place. We need a central authority that can protect us as an Ummah to practice our way of life in Peace and protect the well being of society

  21. I love role of turkey in Europe as a custodian to the Muslims in the continent. It's a great step for Muslim minorities to realise their existence and brotherhood. Turkey may regain its caliphate it lost in sha Allah 🙂

  22. I would say great initiative. But Turkey as a guardian country must involve western islamic scholars in the discussion as well to be more effective. And also involve revert politicians like Arthur Wagner or Joram van Klaveren to create more effective institutions.

  23. How To Study And Understand The Quran ?

    > Unfortunately <

    We are only taught how to '' recite '' the Quran without the >> Understanding of the Quran << and we rely fully on other people interpretation rather than understand God's guidance directly.

    The Quran is like book of ( Ayah's Jig Saw Puzzles Pieces ) that you need to find how one piece of Ayah's puzzle related to the other piece of Ayah and connect them together to understand the meaning of all other related Ayahs.

    Use the Quran as Ayah's of Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces and put them together.

    Before you come to any conclusion about a Ayah's understanding or its meaning, you MUST look for other Ayahs related to the > same subject < and than you will find perfect meaning of that Ayah.

    Note: Do not take meaning of > one Ayah < in isolation.

    One Ayah can have two meaning

    The Qur'an is a book of God's introduction of Himself to humanity and His guidance, His solutions, His laws, His warning, His rewards, His Do's and Dont's, His Ayahs and its contains Science, Stories and Human history its require ingenuity in ascertaining its answer or meaning.

    There are many Ayahs has hidden meaning you need to > PONDER < upon it.

    God sent the Quran to All the humanity >> to Read it, to Understand it, to Obey it << '' NOT '' just for scholars of the '' PAST '' to study the Quran.

    And the scholars of the '' PAST '' can be > wrong < in there interpretation of the Quran and Islam.

    Does Allah want you to study the Quran yourself or learn the Quran from scholars of the '' PAST '' ?

    The Quran is not a magical book to gain reward by reading mindlessly but its God commandments to obey.

    The Quran was revealed to guide us along the straight path, towards our Creator. It is wisdom, it is a guide, it is a code of conduct, it is the criteria for right and wrong.

    *…The Quran should be read very very very slow not to rush but to > ponder < upon it,

    Quran 20:114
    '' So high [above all] is Allah , the Sovereign, the Truth. And, [O Muhammad], do not >> hasten << with [recitation of] the Qur'an before its revelation is completed to you, and say, "My Lord, increase me in knowledge."

    *…The Quran is the criterion for right and wrong, to know the truth and the falsehood

    Quran 25:1
    '' Blessed is He Who has revealed ( Quran ) unto His slave the Criterion (of right and wrong), that he may be a warner to the peoples.''

    *…The Quran sent as a book of > guidance < to your life and mercy to humanity.

    Quran 7:52
    '' And We had certainly brought them a Book ( Quran ) which We detailed by knowledge > as guidance < and mercy to a people who believe.''

    *…The Quran is fully detailed

    Quran 11:1
    '' Alif, Lam, Ra. [This is] a Book ( Quran ) whose verses are perfected and then presented in > detail < from [one who is] Wise and Acquainted.''

    *…The Quran is sent to warn evil doer and good news for doer of good

    Quran 11:2
    '' (It teaches) ( Quran ) that you should worship none but Allah. (Say): "Verily I am (sent) unto you from Him to > warn < and to bring > good news < ''

    *…The Quran is the '' BEST '' Tafseer ( explanation ) of itself

    Quran 25:33
    '' And no example or similitude do they bring (to oppose or to find fault in you or in this Quran), but We reveal to you the truth (against that similitude or example), and the > better Tafseer < explanation thereof.''

    *…The Quran contain no contradictions

    Quran 4:82
    '' Then do they not reflect upon the Qur'an? If it had been from [any] other than Allah , they would have found within it much contradiction.''

    *…The Quran is to guides you with clear evidence

    Quran 22:16
    '' And thus have We sent the Qur'an down as verses of > clear evidence < and because Allah guides whom He intends.''

    *…The Quran message is the same as previous books

    Quran 23:68
    '' Do they not > ponder < over the Word (of Allah), or Was it different from what was revealed to your > forefathers? < ''

    *…The Quran should be read to > understand < and '' obey '' Allah's commends

    Quran 38:29
    '' (This is) a Book (the Quran) which We have sent down to you, full of blessings that they may > ponder over its Verses < and that men of understanding may > remember.<''

    *…The Quran should be guide book for your life

    Quran 47:24
    '' Then do they not > reflect upon < the Qur'an, or are there locks upon [their] hearts? ''

    *…The Quran > easy to understand < if you pay ''attention''

    Quran 54:17
    '' We have made the Quran > easy to understand < but is there anyone who would pay > attention < ? ''

    *…The Quran no human can alter its purity

    Quran 56:77-79
    '' Indeed, it is a noble Qur'an, Which none can touch but the purified ''

    *…Allah promised the preservation of the Quran

    Quran 15:9
    '' Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur'an and indeed, We will be its guardian.''

    *…Sadly Muslims do not ''study'' the Quran but only ''recite'' like parrots do without understanding.

    *…Muslim ''recite'' the Quran and ''study'' the Hadith

    Quran 25:30
    '' The Prophet ( Muhammad ) will say: " O my Lord! Truly '' my '' people ( Muslims ) > abandoned < this Quran."


    * The Quran is a book of guides how to > qualified < to go to the Paradise.

    * '' YOUR " religion / sect is NOT a > qualification < for to inter the Paradise.

    * '' YOUR " birth in the Muslim's family is NOT a > qualification < for to inter the Paradise.

    * No one can save " YOU '' from the hellfire not even the Prophet Muhammad.(ﷺ)

    * Memorizing the ''whole'' Quran is '' NOT '' a > qualification < for to inter the Paradise.

    * You '' MUST '' know how to became > qualified < for to inter the Paradise.

    * Obeying the Quran make you > qualified < to go to the Paradise.

    * The Quran is a book of > Mercy < from the God which is ''guides'' you that how should you >behave< toward other human being / animals.

    * On the day of judgement " YOUR " love for Ṣaḥābahs (companions) and Ahl al-Bayt can't help you in any way or form.

    * On the day of judgement God will ''NOT'' judge humanity bases on Muslim vs non-Muslim but doer of goods vs doer of evils

    * On the day of judgement '' YOU '' will be standing ( alone ) in the front of God and He '' alone '' will decide you fate.

    The Prophet (ﷺ) will NOT decide you fate.

    * The Prophet said: O Fatima, I have nothing which can > help you against Allah < you may ask me what you want of my worldly belongings… Sahih Muslim 205

    Can Prophet save Fatima from the hellfire?

    Can Prophet save you from the hellfire?

    Who will intercede behalf of the Prophet? Allah

    The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) was / is ''one'' of the Adam's son "Nothing More"

    Quran 9:116
    '' Indeed, to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth; He gives life and causes death. And you have not > besides Allah < any protector or any helper.''

    Hoping the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) will save you from the hellfire is ( Shirk )

    O Muslim who are " YOURS " intercessors / helpers beside Allah ?

    Quran 10:18
    '' And they worship besides Allah things that hurt them not, nor profit them, and they say: "These are our intercessors with Allah." Say: "Do you inform Allah of that which He knows not in the heavens and on the earth?" Glorified and Exalted be He above all that which they associate as partners with Him!''

    Quran 4:41
    '' How (will it be) then, when We bring from each nation a witness and We bring you (O Muhammad SAW) as a witness against these people ( Muslims ? ) ''

    * On the day of judgement God will show you a movie about all the thing '' YOU '' used to do GOOD and BAD.

    Quran 99:6-8

    '' That Day, the people will depart separated [into categories] to be shown [the result of] their deeds. So whoever does an atom's weight of good > will see it < And whoever does an atom's weight of evil > will see it <''

    * The > qualification < for to inter the Paradise is > Faith in God and Good Work <.

    Quran 2:82
    '' And those who > believe < ( In God ) and > do righteous deeds < those are the companions of Paradise; they will abide therein eternally.''

    * Soon you will die, everything you owned today, you will left them behind.

    * Achieving a place in the Paradise should be > Your Purpose Of Life <.

    May God help you in your journey to the Paradise..!!!

  24. The Ottoman Empire reneged from Islam by taking Riba and Decriminalizing Homosexuality. And later in the waning days of the Ottoman Empire they commited Pogroms against Armenians, Greek, and Assyrian Christians. If Turkey and It's Muslim Populations wants to Restore Genuine Islam. They must speak the Truth! Acknowledge their History and start building bridges with their neighbours And return to Qur'an. If they can do that, then InsyaAllah the rest of the Muslim majority country may follow in their footsteps and Restore Unity.

  25. Spain would also be a good candidate for the Headquarters apart from Istanbul considering its Islamic legacy Al Andalus.

  26. Headquarters for the european muslim body in Vienna?!!!. Paris is a better suggestion! 😂. I dont think there is a more hostile nation in Europe to muslims as Austria. Good luck setting that up
