A great Mujahid , Scholar and strict follower of the Sunnah.
During battles, Being always the front liner he would say : ” I fought many battles and wished to be a martyr but i did not attain it”
Upon hearing this, Imam Qutb Ad din(RA) told him : ” I ask you in the name of Allah not to risk your life as you are the backbone for Islam and Muslims”
Nur ad Din Zangi(RA) replied
” What is all this about ? Who am I to be considered important ? There is the One who save Islam and its land before me ; It is the Almighty Allah and there is no God but he”.
Shame to see the current so called Muslim rulers and their treachery to this Ummah!
