How The Muslims Took Over Constaninople and Killed Dracula

Recommended Posts

Unknown to a lot of us, Dracula was a real person and not a Vampire. He, Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia (1431–1476/77), was a member of the House of Drăculești, a branch of the House of Basarab, also known, using his patronymic, as (Vlad) Drăculea or (Vlad) Dracula, better known as Vlad the Impaler. In simple words, he was the ruler of the southern part of the country we now call today as Romania.

In his time, the ruler of the Ottoman Empire was none other than Muhammad Al Fateh. Who is one of the most revered Heroes of Islam, known especially for his conquest of Constantinople.


The story goes like this:

As Muhammad Al Fateh began to advance into eastern Europe, in lands such as Bosnia, Serbia, Hungary, he came across the people of Wallachia (Southerner Romania). These people wanted to fight against the Ottomans. However they were very weak, so they had to make a peace deal with the Ottomans.

So as part of the deal, Muhammad Al Fateh, asked the ruler to send him his two sons, and he will send them to Istanbul to be educated.

The ruler sent his two sons, one named Vlad and the other named Radu. They were sent to Istanbul where they got to study about Islam and taught the Quran, also got to learn all the different languages such as Arabic and Turkish. Radu soon embraced Islam, even ended up memorizing the Quran. Later on Vlad was sent back to his country while Radu decided to remain.

The Ottomans decided to make Vlad the ruler of Wallachia as they did not want to force a Muslim ruler on a country of Christians. Contrary to what the Ottomans had hoped for, Dracula decided that he wasn’t going to do what the Sultan wanted.

When the Sultan sent emissaries to Dracula, telling him that he must pay Jiziya (protection tax) , now that he is the ruler of the country.

Dracula said to the Sultan’s messengers, “If you want to step into my court, you have to take your turbans off”.


They replied by saying that they would not remove it for him, not for a Kafir. On hearing this, he commanded his guards to bring some very big nails and hammers.

“If you would not remove your turbans for me, then you will never remove them again!” He said to the messengers, after which he ordered the turbans to be nailed to their heads. This eventually killed them.

By killing the Messengers, he declared war on the Ottomans.

Muhammad Al Fateh sent a Massive army to fight against him, but Dracula, because of his tactics and because he knew the Ottomans so well, he was able to defeat them on some occasions.

Now what he did, what really makes him stand out in being an absolute devil was that when they would kill a person or sometimes when they captured a person, he commanded his followers to do something which is called impaling.

If you haven’t heard about impaling, its a pretty gruesome thing to describe. What they would do is, they would get a very big stick. They would make it sharp on one end, insert it through one’s anus, through the body, until it comes out the mouth. On some occasions, the victim didn’t die on the spot, but used to die a very slow and painful death.


For eight centuries, the conquest of Constantinople, now Istanbul Turkey was a dream for the Muslim commanders. Ever since the era of the revered companion, Mu`aawiyah Ibn Abu Sufyaan, there had been many attempts to conquer it, but none had succeeded.

Every Muslim commander wanted to be the conqueror praised in the narration in which the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) said: "You will conquer Constantinople. Its commander is the best and its army (that will conquer it) is the best."

Who was then the person about whom the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) gave glad tidings? It was Muhammad Al-Faatih, may Allah have mercy on him, son of the Ottoman Sultan Murad II.


Muhammad Al-Faatih, may Allah have mercy on him, as a child and his excellent preparation:

Muhammad Al-Fatih was born on 27th  Rajab, 835 A.H.,  30th  March, 1432. He was brought up under the supervision of his father, Sultan Murad II, the seventh Ottoman Sultan. His father prepared and trained him to shoulder the responsibilities of the position of a Sultan. Muhammad Al-Fatih memorized all the Quran, learnt the Prophetic narrations, Islamic jurisprudence, mathematics, astronomy and the skills required for war.

He also learnt Arabic, Persian, Latin and Greek languages. He joined his father in his battles and conquests.

His father appointed him as a ruler of a small emirate so that he could receive practical training on administering state affairs under the supervision of some of the top scholars of that time. This matter influenced the character of the young prince and tinted his personality with Islamic morals and manners.

Shaykh Aaq Shamsd-Deen, one of the scholars who supervised the upbringing and education of Muhammad Al-Faatih, managed to inculcate in his heart the spirit of Jihaad and the desire to be a person with high ambition.

The Shaykh also told Muhammad Al-Faatih, may Allah have mercy on him, that he may be the one referred to in the Prophetic narration mentioned above. All this shaped the character of Muhammad Al-Faatih. He was devoted to Jihaad, highly ambitious, widely cultured, and had deep knowledge of the skills of war and combat.

Taking power and his efforts to achieve the glad tiding:

After the death of his father, Sultan Murad II on 5th Muharram, 852 A.H., 7th February, 1451 A.C., Muhammad Al-Faatih, may Allah have mercy on him, took over and became the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire. He was a strong young man, only twenty years old, very enthusiastic and ambitious. He was thinking of the conquest of Constantinople, the capital of the Byzantine Empire. This dream overwhelmed him to the extent that he would not talk about any subject except for the conquest of Constantinople. He would not even allow anyone who was sitting with him to talk, except about the expected conquest.

The first step in achieving his dream was to take control of the Strait of Bosporus so that he could prevent any support or supplies that might come to Constantinople from Europe. So he built a huge castle on the European seashore of the Strait of Bosporus. Along with top senior officials, he personally participated in building the castle. It took three months to build this castle that came to be known as the Roman Castle. On the other bank of the Strait of Bosporus there was the Castle of Anatolia. It then became impossible for any ship to cross unless it obtained permission from the Ottoman forces.

At that time, a talented engineer managed to make a number of cannons for the Sultan, Muhammad Al-Faatih, may Allah have mercy on him. One of these cannons, never known before that time, was 700 tons and its projectile weighed 1,500 kilograms.

The sound of its shell could be heard from a long distance away. It was pulled by one hundred oxen aided by one hundred strong men. This giant cannon was called the Sultanic Cannon.

But yes, Islam is the culture of invasion. Afghanistan used to be Buddhist until Islam invaded. They've been spreading their hate for 1400 years. It's not pretty.

Hinduism was prevalent in India for thousands of years. Then the invaders took over what is now Paristan.

Hindus are still fighting off the Muslims, who would love to destroy that ancient culture. I'd hate to see Indian women wear those hideous burqas instead of their lovely saris. Mohammedism is about conquest, submission, total subjugation of women. Their Quran, which no one ever quotes, says that it is the duty of believers to kill infidels.
