Words of our great Muslim Worrior, Tariq ibn Ziyad, for my Myanmar Muslim brothers

August 22, 2013

Dear Myanmar Muslim brothers,

I hope you have already know about our great Muslim Worrior, Tariq ibn Ziyad…I wish to re-post his famous motivational speech here. (His action is same as Myanmar’s Bayint Naung’s destroying the rafts story.)

Tariq ibn Ziyad (Source: Wikipedia) (Arabic: طارق بن زياد‎, died 720) was a Muslim general who led the Islamic conquest of Visigothic Hispania in 711-718 A.D. He is considered to be one of the most important military commanders in Iberian history. Under the orders of the Umayyad Caliph Al-Walid I he led a large army from the north coast of Morocco, consolidating his troops at a large hill now known as Gibraltar. The name “Gibraltar” is the Spanish derivation of the Arabic name Jabal Tāriq (جبل طارق), meaning “mountain of Tariq”,[1] named after him.
