Sultan Mohammed Al Fatih’s mother, Hüma Hatun, used to take Mohammed when he was a little child, at dawn time, to show him the walls of the Constantinople and say:
“You Mohammed will conquer these walls.” He would ask her: “But how do I conquer such a big city?”
She would then respond with utter wisdom: “By Quran, Sultan (power), weaponry, and people’s love.”
She dedicated her son to Islam, set his priorities straight and raised him with the ambition of being the ruler the prophet(Peace be upon him) gave glad tidings to. By the age of 21, he conquered Constantinople and brought an end to the Eastern Roman Empire.
