Celaleddin Harizmshah



The Khwarazmshahs, the political heirs of the Great Seljuk Empire, were a vast Turkic state in the 12th century, stretching from the Aral Sea to the Indian Ocean and from the Caucasus to the Syr Darya River. Genghis Khan, preparing to invade Khwarazm by burning and destroying it, was getting ready to invade Khurasan, Iran, Iraq, and Anatolia. Left with only a single sword of sovereignty from his father Sultan Muhammad, the last lion of Khwarazm, Jalal al-Din, reestablished the state and stood before the Mongols like a mountain. Jalal al-Din, a sultan who was so sacrificial for jihad that he would send his mother, wife, and children to death when necessary, so brave that he would engage in one-on-one combat with enemy warriors, and so merciful that he would forgive those who betrayed him, spent his life from Khurasan to Anatolia on horseback, covering a vast geography. His aim was to reunite Muslims and stand together against the impending Mongol threat. In this book, you will read about the courageous and heroic life of the great Turkic ruler Jalal al-Din Khwarazmshah, filled with examples of courage and bravery.
