Tears Of The Alhambra



Andalusian Muslims, who taught science, art and civilization to Medieval Europe, unfortunately forgot the brotherhood between them. They constantly fought with each other because of tribal irritability, which is clearly prohibited by Islam. Revolts and coups in Andalusia invited the enemy who had been waiting for an opportunity for centuries. While Abu Abdullah, the last Sultan of Beni Ahmer, was leaving Granada after surrendering the city to the Catholic kings, he started to cry, looking back from the Hill of Tears and looking at the Alhambra at the last turning point on the road to Büşşerat. Seeing this, his mother Ayşe Sultan said to him: “Now cry like women for your country, which you cannot defend like men!” he said. This work tells the sad story of how the eight-century-long civilization of Muslims came to an end because of the fights for the throne; Meanwhile, it also introduces the excellent works of art and architecture produced in Andalusia, despite the military and political weakness. Of course, the most important of these architectural works is the Alhambra, the “last castle of Andalusia”. A phrase repeated perhaps thousands of times among the embroideries of this magnificent castle-palace shouts to the whole world that the sole victor is only Allah: Velâ Galibe İllallah.
