Biography of Selahaddin Eyyubi

This world-conquering hero was born in 532 Hijri, 1137 AD in Tikrit, Mosul Emirate of Mesopotamia at that time. He grew up in Damascus, Syria. He was a Sunni Muslim. His wife’s name was Ismatuddin Khatun. His grandfather was Nuruddin Zengi, founder of the city of Aleppo and founder of the Zengi dynasty. His father Nazmuddin Ayub was the caretaker of Trigris area.

According to Imad al-Din, Salah al-Din had five sons before leaving Egypt in 1174. Salahuddin’s eldest son Al Afdal Ibn Salahuddin was born in 1170 and Al Aziz Uthman in 1172. The second was with Saladin in Syria. His third son was Az Zahir Ghazi. He later became the ruler of Aleppo. Son Masud was born in 1175 and Yaqub in 1176.

In 1163 Nur al-Din Zengi sent Salah al-Din to Fatimid Egypt. Through his skill and prudence, he rose to the top of the Fatimid government after the victory over the Crusaders. He had a close relationship with the then Fatimid Caliph Al Adid.

When his uncle died in 1169, Al Adid appointed Salahuddin as his vizier. It was a rare occurrence to be given such a post in the Caliphate. Salahuddin was averse to the Fatimid regime of that time.

After al-Adid died, Salah al-Din came to power and declared allegiance to the Abbasid Caliphate in Baghdad. Later he launched an attack against the Crusaders in Palestine, and after a successful campaign in Yemen, he overthrew the Fatimids in Egypt.

After Nur-ud-Din died in 1174, Salah-ud-Din concentrated on the conquest of Syria, and he personally led the conquest of Syria. In mid-1175 he conquered Hama and Hims. The Zengi leaders under the Syrian ruler at one point turned against Salahuddin Ayyubi.

He then quickly defeated Zengi’s army and was proclaimed Sultan of Egypt and Syria by the Abbasid Caliph Al Mustadi. After becoming Sultan, he fought with the Hashishines of northern Syria and the Jazira. He then returned to Egypt in 1177.

In 1182 he completed his conquest of Syria by conquering Aleppo. Undeterred, he led his Ayyubid army personally and defeated the Crusaders at the Battle of Hattin in 1187. On Friday 2 October 1187, his army captured Jerusalem after a siege.

Richard’s army clashed with Saladin’s at the Battle of Arsuf on 7 September 1191, but Saladin initially failed somewhat, but later trapped Richard and forced him to retreat. Through this, Richard failed in all his military campaigns and battles to conquer Jerusalem. In 1192, Saladin and Richard signed the Treaty of “Ramlar”. By this it was determined that Jerusalem would be in the hands of the Muslims.

On March 4, 1193, Salahuddin fell ill and died in Damascus. At the time of his death, his personal wealth consisted of one piece of gold and forty pieces of silver. He donated most of his wealth to the poor. He was buried next to the Umayyad Mosque. His shrine is located there. more
