Originally composed in 932 AH / 1525 CE and dedicated to Sultan Süleyman I ("The Magnificent"), this great work by Piri Reis (d. 962 AH / 1555 CE) on navigation was later revised and expanded. The present manuscript, made mostly in the late 11th AH / 17th CE century, is based on the later expanded version with some 240 exquisitely executed maps and portolan charts. They include a world map (fol.41a) with the outline of the Americas, as well as coastlines (bays, capes, peninsulas), islands, mountains and cities of the Mediterranean basin and the Black Sea. The work starts with the description of the coastline of Anatolia and the islands of the Aegean Sea, the Peloponnese peninsula and eastern and western coasts of the Adriatic Sea. It then proceeds to describe the western shores of Italy, southern France, Spain, North Africa, Palestine, Israel, Lebanon, Syria, western Anatolia, various islands north of Crete, Sea of Marmara, Bosporus and the Black Sea. It ends with a map of the shores of the the Caspian Sea (fol.374a).

Decorativer Halbmond ☪ auf der Damaszener Halle der Wilhelma in Stuttgart
-
Das Symbol der Mondsichel, genauer gesagt des Neumonds, gab es bereits vor dem Islam und wurde erst später zur Zeit der Osmanen als Symbol für den Islam übernommen.

Die Sichel des Neumonds, arabisch Hilal, hat an sich keine religiös symbolische Bedeutung.

In die islamische Kunst wurde die Mondsichel als dekoratives Element übernommen. Beim Bau des Felsendomes in Jerusalem fand die Sichel Verwendung in Mosaiken. Auch islamische Münzen verwendeten das Motiv.

„The crescent is symbolic of the beginning of the lunar month according to the moslem calendar.

Stern und Halbmond, Symbol des Islam

Im religiösen Bereich fand das Symbol Verwendung als Abschlussmotiv von Minaretten oder auf Darstellungen der Ka'ba .

-
Das Islamische Jahr richtet sich ausschließlich nach dem Mondkalender. Zahlreiche religiöse Feste und andere Termine hängen mit dem Erscheinen des neuen Mondes zusammen. So beginnt auch der Fastenmonat Ramadan erst mit dem Erscheinen der Mondsichel.
*
Die islamische Zeitrechnung beginnt mit dem Datum der Flucht (arabisch -Hidschra-) des Propheten von Mekka nach Yathrib (Medinat al-nabi, kurz Medina) im Jahr 622 n. Chr. Das Jahr 622 n. Chr. ist das islamische Jahr eins.

Wenn es im Abendland -nach Christi Geburt- (n.Chr.) heißt, so heißt es in der islamischen Welt -nach der Hidschra- (n. H.).

Ein islamisches Jahr deckt sich nie mit einem christlichen, weil die Muslime das Jahr zu 12 Mondmonaten, die Christen aber das Jahr zu 12 Sonnenmonaten rechnen (365 Tage).

Islam ist ein arabisches Wort und bezieht sich auf die Religion. Islam heißt übersetzt: "völlige Hingabe an einen einzigen Gott (arabisch Allah) bzw. "Unterwerfung unter den Willen Gottes". Das heißt auch, persönliche Opfer auf sich zu nehmen, um die Gebote dieses einzigen Gottes einzuhalten. Die Gläubigen des Islam nennt man Muslime.

Mohammed gilt als Überbringer (auch Gesandter oder Prophet) von Gottes Botschaft an die Menschen. Ihm wurde nach dem Glauben der Muslime die Religion des Islam in der Zeit 610 - 632 n. Chr. durch den Erzengel Gabriel offenbart.

Mohammed selbst wählte die Bezeichnung "Islam" für den von ihm verkündeten Glauben.

Der goldene Halbmond

Als die Besatzung der Festung Wien erkannte, daß sie nicht länger werde standhalten können, begehrte sie vom Sultan einen zehntägigen Waffenstillstand, um ihrem Herrn einen Absagebrief zu übersenden. Wenn sie innerhalb der gesetzten Frist keine Hilfe erhalte, betrachte sie sich ihres Eides entbunden und wolle die Stadt übergeben. Zugleich bat sie, den Stephansturm zu schonen. Der Sultan willfahrte ihren Bitten, aber mit der Bedingung, daß sie anstatt des Kreuzes einen Halbmond auf die Spitze setze. Was die Belagerten auch taten. Die Übergabe jedoch verzögerten sie unter mancherlei Vorwänden, bis Sultan Süleyman wegen des einfallenden Winters die Belagerung abbrechen mußte.

Marmaris Castle is located in Muğla province, Turkey.
Marmaris Castle was reconstructed by Süleyman the Magnificent during his expedition against Rhodes.
The Marmaris Castle is one of the few castles in Turkey that also possesses a museum. It is estimated to be 5000 years old from the first point a fort was placed in the location.
According to famous historian Herodotus the first city walls in Marmaris were constructed in 3,000 B.C., although the only written source about the construction of the castle by the renowned Ottoman traveler, Evliya Çelebi, in his work Seyahatname.
Çelebi, who visited Muğla and its vicinity in the 17th century, says Sultan Süleyman ordered the construction of the castle before his expedition to Rhodes and that the castle served as a military base during the expedition.
The castle was registered as a monumental structure in 1983 and opened as a museum in 1991.

According to Wikipedia, the Süleymaniye Mosque is an Ottoman imperial mosque located on the Third Hill of Istanbul, Turkey and is the largest mosque in the city, and one of the best-known sights of Istanbul. The mosque was built on the order of Sultan Süleyman (Süleyman the Magnificent), who was fortunate to be able to draw on the talents of the architectural genius of Mimar Sinan, The construction work began in 1550 and was finished in 1558. This "vast religious complex called the Süleymaniye blended Islamic and Byzantine architectural elements. It combines tall, slender minarets with large domed buildings supported by half domes in the style of the Byzantine church Hagia Sophia, which the Ottomans had converted into the mosque of Aya Sofya. Like the other imperial mosques in Istanbul, the mosque itself is preceded by a monumental courtyard on its west side. The courtyard at the Süleymaniye is of exceptional grandeur with a colonnaded peristyle with columns of marble, granite and porphyry. At the four corners of the courtyard are the four minarets, a number only allowable to mosques endowed by a sultan (princes and princesses could construct two minarets; others only one). The main dome is 174 feet (53 m) high and has a diameter of 90 feet (27.5 m). At the time it was built, the dome was the highest in the Ottoman Empire, when measured from sea level, but still lower from its base and smaller in diameter than that of Hagia Sophia.

The mosque was built on the order of Sultan Süleyman (Süleyman the Magnificent), who was fortunate to be able to draw on the talents of the architectural genius of Mimar Sinan, The construction work began in 1550 and was finished in 1558. This "vast religious complex called the Süleymaniye blended Islamic and Byzantine architectural elements. It combines tall, slender minarets with large domed buildings supported by half domes in the style of the Byzantine church Hagia Sophia, which the Ottomans had converted into the mosque of Aya Sofya. Like the other imperial mosques in Istanbul, the mosque itself is preceded by a monumental courtyard on its west side. The courtyard at the Süleymaniye is of exceptional grandeur with a colonnaded peristyle with columns of marble, granite and porphyry. At the four corners of the courtyard are the four minarets, a number only allowable to mosques endowed by a sultan (princes and princesses could construct two minarets; others only one). The main dome is 174 feet (53 m) high and has a diameter of 90 feet (27.5 m). At the time it was built, the dome was the highest in the Ottoman Empire, when measured from sea level, but still lower from its base and smaller in diameter than that of Hagia Sophia.

Süleymaniye Camisi, Alanya, Antalya'da bulunan tarihi bir camidir.

Cami, Selçuklu Sultanı Alaaddin Keykubad tarafından kentin yeniden düzenlenmesi sırasında 1231 yılında kalenin zirve kısmında, İçkale'nin hemen dışında yaptırılmıştır. Ancak sonraki yıllarda cami yıkılmış ve 16. yüzyılda Osmanlı döneminde Kanuni Sultan Süleyman tarafından tekrar yaptırılmıştır.

Tek minareli cami, Alaaddin, Kale ya da Süleymaniye adıyla anılır. Yapı moloz taştan ve kare planlıdır. Sekizgen kasnak üzerine, kiremitli bir kubbesi vardır. Kubbenin askılık görevi üstlenen kısmına akustiği sağlamak için 15 küçük küp yerleştirilmiştir. İbadet sırasında bu özellik ortaya çıkmaktadır. Son cemaat yeri, dört ayak üzerine kiremitli üç kubbe ile örtülüdür. Kapı ve pencere kapakları Osmanlı döneminin ahşap oyma işçiliğinin güzel bir örneğidir.

English
Süleymaniye Camisi, is a historical mosque in Alanya.

The mosque was built just outside innercastle of Alanya in 1231 when the city was being reconstructed by Kayqubad I, the Seljuk Sultan of Rum. However the mosque was not in good condition in the following years and it was rebuilt by Kanuni Sultan Süleyman (Suleyman The Magnificient) in the 16th century during the Ottoman Era.

The building is made of rubble stones and it is square in shape.
It has a brick dome based on an octagonal frame. Fifteen little earthenware jars were placed in the part functioning as the hanger of the dome in order to ensure its acoustics. That quality is felt during religious practice, The final public place is found below three brick domes on a four-foot basis. The covers of doors and windows are fine examples of wood carving of the Ottoman.

The entrance to the inner fortress of the Castle of Neratzia, Kos.

In the 14th century, in the period of Sultan Bayezid I, when the raids of the Ottomans on Kos had already been dangerous enough, the Knights of the Order of St. John who dominated the island, decided to construct the castle in order to assure the effective defense of the town and the island. Thus, according to travelers’ description, the first precinct had been built in late 14th century. Later on, between 1450 and 1478, a second precinct was added to surround the first one, with a wide and deep moat between the two. Contact of the two constructions was possible through a drawbridge. The inner fortress has four defensive towers; the southeastern of them had been incorporated to the outer wall, which has huge bastions at the corners, battlements and gun ports.

On several occasions during the 15th century the Ottomans failed to conquer the fortress. Finally, in June 1522 Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent attacked the Order's headquarters in Rhodos from the Bay of Marmaris with 200,000 soldiers. After the siege the city of Rhodos eventually fell in December 1522. The terms of surrender included the handing over of the Knights' fortresses in Kos and St. Peter's Castle in Bodrum. The Knights Hospitaller left Kos forever in January 1523.

Originally composed in 932 AH / 1525 CE and dedicated to Sultan Süleyman I ("The Magnificent"), this great work by Piri Reis (d. 962 AH / 1555 CE) on navigation was later revised and expanded. The present manuscript, made mostly in the late 11th AH / 17th CE century, is based on the later expanded version with some 240 exquisitely executed maps and portolan charts. They include a world map (fol.41a) with the outline of the Americas, as well as coastlines (bays, capes, peninsulas), islands, mountains and cities of the Mediterranean basin and the Black Sea. The work starts with the description of the coastline of Anatolia and the islands of the Aegean Sea, the Peloponnese peninsula and eastern and western coasts of the Adriatic Sea. It then proceeds to describe the western shores of Italy, southern France, Spain, North Africa, Palestine, Israel, Lebanon, Syria, western Anatolia, various islands north of Crete, Sea of Marmara, Bosporus and the Black Sea. It ends with a map of the shores of the the Caspian Sea (fol.374a).

The flags of Malta and the Order of St. John over the walls of Fort St. Angelo in Birgu. The Order has recently returned to Malta, after signing an agreement with the Maltese Government which granted the Order the exclusive use of Fort St. Angelo for 99 years. Located in the town of Birgu, the Fort belonged to the Knights from 1530 until the island was occupied by Napoleon.

The Order of St. John of Jerusalem is one of the oldest institutions of Western and Christian civilisation. Present in Palestine in around 1050, it is a lay religious Order, traditionally of military, chivalrous, noble nature.
The Order is a sovereign subject of international law, with its own constitution, passports, stamps, and public institutions. The 79th Grand Master, Fra’ Matthew Festing, was elected Head of the Order for life on March 11th 2008. The Order has diplomatic relations with 104 countries.

Since its foundation 960 years ago, many names have been used to identify the Order and its members. The official name of the Order is the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta. The knights were initially called the Knights Hospitaller (or Hospitallers) to describe their mission. But they were also called the Knights of St. John because of the Order’s patron saint, St. John Baptist, and also of Jerusalem because of their presence in the Holy Land. Also used in the past was the term The Religion to emphasise the characteristic of religious confraternity. Since the mid-16th century, they have also been called the Knights of Malta.

The Hospitallers were a group of men attached to a hospital in Jerusalem that was founded by Blessed Gerard around 1023. During the First Crusade in 1099 the organisation became a religious and military order under its own charter, and was charged with the care and defence of the Holy Land.
With the Bull of 15 February 1113, Pope Paschal II approved the foundation of the Order and placed it under the aegis of the Holy See, granting it the right to freely elect its superiors without interference from other secular or religious authorities.

The Knights Hospitaller and the Knights Templar, formed in 1119, became the most powerful Christian groups in the Holy Land. The heavy cavalry of the Order became the elite troops of the Crusaders. The order came to distinguish itself in battles with the Muslims, its soldiers wearing a black surcoat with a white cross. On the battlefield they shared with the Templars the most perilous posts, alternately holding the van and rear guard.
At the height of the Kingdom of Jerusalem, the Hospitallers held seven great fortresses and 140 other forts in the Holy Land. The two largest of these, their bases of power in the Kingdom and in the Principality of Antioch, were Krak des Chevaliers and Margat in Syria.

When the last Christian stronghold in the Holy Land, Acre fell in 1291, the Order settled first in Cyprus and then, in 1310, led by Grand Master Fra’ Foulques de Villaret, on the island of Rhodes. From then, the defence of the Christian world required the organisation of a naval force. Thus the Order built a powerful fleet and sailed the Eastern Mediterranean, fighting many famous battles for the sake of Christendom – for example, the Crusades in Syria and Egypt.
In 1523, after six months of siege and fierce combat against the fleet and army of Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent, the Knights were forced to surrender in 1523 and left Rhodes with military honours.

The Order remained without a territory of its own until 1530, when Grand Master Fra’ Philippe de Villiers de l’Isle Adam took possession of the island of Malta, granted to the Order by Emperor Charles V with the approval of Pope Clement VII.
In 1565 the Knights, led by Grand Master Fra’ Jean de la Vallette (after whom the capital of Malta, Valletta, was named), defended the island for more than three months during the Great Siege by the Turks.
From Malta the Hospitallers continued their actions against the Muslims and especially the Barbary pirates. The fleet of the Order, then one of the most powerful in the Mediterranean, contributed to the ultimate destruction of the Ottoman naval power in the Battle of Lepanto in 1571.

Two hundred years later, in 1798, Napoleon Bonaparte occupied Malta for its strategic value during his Egyptian campaign. Because of the Order’s Rule prohibiting them to raise weapons against other Christians, the knights were forced to leave Malta.
In 1834 the Order settled definitively in Rome, where it owns, with extraterritoriality status, the Magistral Palace in Via Condotti and the Magistral Villa on the Aventine Hill.

The original hospitaller mission became once again the main activity of the Order, growing ever stronger during the last century. Large-scale hospitaller and charitable activities were carried out during World Wars I and II.
The Order of Malta remains true to its inspiring principles, defence of the Faith and assistance to the poor and the suffering, which become reality through the voluntary work carried out by Dames and Knights in humanitarian assistance and medical and social activities. Today the Order carries out these activities in over 120 countries.

KÖPRÜNÜN KİTABESİ

Abdullah oğlu Yusuf’un eseridir. Tanrı ona ve bizzat çalışanlara mağfiret etsün

"Bu güzel köprünün ve değerli geçidin temelini Allah Taâlânın rizası için Selim Hânın oğlu Sultan oğlu Sultan, Süleyman Hân attı. – Yâ Rabb onu sırat ve mizânın tehlikesinden koru.-

Bunu müteakip merhum mâğfur deni dünyadan rahmet canibine ve cennete intikal etti.

Sonra en büyük Sultan, ulu Hâkaan Arab ve Acem meliklerinin efendisi, dünyada ve âhırette Allah’ın gölgesi Sultan oğlu Sultan Selim Hân ( İbn es-Sultan Süleyman ibn es-Sultan Selim ibn es-Sultan Bayazid ibn es-Sultan Muhammed ibn es-Sultan Murad ibn es -sultan Muhammed ibn es –Sultan Bayazid ibn es-Sultan Murad ibn es-Sultan Orhan ibn es-Sultan Osman ) onun taht-ı saltanatına oturdu ve H.975 yılında bu köprüyü tamamladı.

Zamanın sonuna kadar Allah, devletini ebedi kılsın ve Kur-ân hürmetine ikisinin hayratını kabul eylesin. "

Originally composed in 932 AH / 1525 CE and dedicated to Sultan Süleyman I ("The Magnificent"), this great work by Piri Reis (d. 962 AH / 1555 CE) on navigation was later revised and expanded. The present manuscript, made mostly in the late 11th AH / 17th CE century, is based on the later expanded version with some 240 exquisitely executed maps and portolan charts. They include a world map (fol.41a) with the outline of the Americas, as well as coastlines (bays, capes, peninsulas), islands, mountains and cities of the Mediterranean basin and the Black Sea. The work starts with the description of the coastline of Anatolia and the islands of the Aegean Sea, the Peloponnese peninsula and eastern and western coasts of the Adriatic Sea. It then proceeds to describe the western shores of Italy, southern France, Spain, North Africa, Palestine, Israel, Lebanon, Syria, western Anatolia, various islands north of Crete, Sea of Marmara, Bosporus and the Black Sea. It ends with a map of the shores of the the Caspian Sea (fol.374a).

İstanbul’un caddelerini süsleyen lale çiçeklerin kraliçesidir. 70’e yakın çeşidi vardır. En ilginç çeşidi de Hakkari ve Şemdinli yakınlarında yetişen “Ters Lale” dir. Anadolu bu çok ender görülen çeşidiyle birlikte lale cenneti sayılır. Avrupa bu benzersiz çiçekle 16. yüzyılda tanıştı. Kanuni Sultan Süleyman tarafından Hollanda Kralı’na gönderilen “tülbent lalesi” kısa zamanda Avrupa’da çılgın bir modaya dönüştü. Bu isim zaman içinde değişti ve “tülbent” adı “tulipa” ya dönerek lalenin “bilimsel” adı oldu.
