Ibn Battuta was a man of Berber descent born in Tangier under the reign of the Marinid dynasty in February of 1304. He’s family was made up of Islamic legal scholars who belonged to the Lawata Berber tribe. Ibn Battuta himself would likely have studied at a Sunni Maliki school and was offered a job as a religious judge, but he would soon realize that his heart yearned for much, much more…

Ibn Battuta quotes: “ Traveling - gives you a home in a thousand strange places, then leaves you a stranger in your own land ( Home ) “ “ He who lives sees, and he who travels sees more “ “ Traveling-it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller “ “ Traveling- it offers you a hundred roads to adventure, and gives your heart wings! “ “ Virtue is by reason and literature, not by origin and lineage “

From my school book, the name "Sumatera" in Indonesia can be counted as the legacy from Ibn Battuta. When he visited Samudera Pasai Sultanate during his journey to China, he wrote the word "Sumatrah" for that place in his journal (maybe from the misspelling from the "Samudera" word). The word "Sumatrah" become the international name for the region and then for the island as well until today.

He even arrived in Maldives, even now it’s hard for us to get out because we are disconnected from main continental lands, our only options are to fly, hardly locals use passenger ships, I can imagine how his journey would be back then. It’s stated that he was here around 9 months and served as a judge. Even though the journey was hard, he never had to apply for a Visa back then. In today’s age, he would have to apply to many Visas.

The best among you before Allah is the most righteous" ... feeling proud about ur tribe and nation is not bad at all ...the only bad thing is thinking you're nation is superior to another one or your race is superior than the other ones and for that u can oppress the others or commit crimes against them... the only way for u to be "superior" is how much of good deeds a person can do and only allah can judge that

Diae 8 meses atrás
He also was studying under great scholars of Islam on his way. mostly when you hear he stayed for few months he was furthering his knowledge and getting more certifications. That along with being already a certified judge from a family of judges made rulers want to use him and many times he would struggle to leave. If I remember right they would even get him married to locals to tie him. But staying wasn't his style I guess :D

He was a highly educated man, At that time, the world's scientists were traveling to Morocco to study and do not forget that the first university built in the world is in Morocco ( The country of Ibn Battuta). So he had a great value and a deep respect from people in the world at that time. He was a wise thinker and philosopher as well.

@Jandroid Yes, he was soliciting gifts, payments only to finance his travels, he never spared his wealth to settle down somewhere in the shade. It's quite different from what motivated Columbus, Marco Polo and Vasco De Gama. The proof is when he came back to Morocco, he wasn't rich and he had survived only on his inheritance and the generosity of Morocco's Sultan.

Reinhard i came up with that from his biography, his book, and also from his life outcome, he family was rich, so he could have stayed home and enjoyed his wealth, he often moves from place to place when he could have stayed to enjoy the hospitality of the rulers/Kings whom they favoured him. And most importantly, he retired and died without a wealth, without being nominated a governor over a new earned territory for his king/Sultan, he didn't rename any place after his queen/king, he didn't wage a war, bribed a local leader to fight an opposant tribe, he didn't seek for a new route to reach some rich country to buy their stuff cheaper, he didn't hire mercenaries for his cause, he didn't transmit diseases through gifts to indigenous people, he didn't enslave them. Now shut up go fish elsewhere.

He travelled in the Muslim world. Even though he was a Berber, Arabic was the de facto educational language in the diverse Muslim world from Morocco to Indonesia. Non Muslim nations such as India and Russia were under Muslim rule at that period of time and Ibn Battuta ususally stayed with Muslim community such as from his travel in China, Southern India and Sri Lanka.

We Bangladeshis 🇧🇩 know Ibn Battuta well as he is studied in our education curriculum. So, as a Bangladeshi and particularly Chittagongian, I got goosebumps when on 12:20, the narrator takes the name of Chittagong, then Sylhet. I love Hazrat Shah Jalal Rahmat Ullah Alai. Surely that was the time when Muslims were having their golden time with political, intellectual and spiritual dominance.

Ibn Battuta is one of my favourite historical personalities. I have collected some very interesting books on and about his historical voyages around the globe. He was a brave, daring, and determined person to have successfully explored the world and to put down in his diary all the people, culture, and experiences he had learned during his sojourn. No one before or after Ibn Battuta had explored the world single-handedly and returned home safe. My prayers for his soul and for the parents he had lost.

in the most of middle eastern countries his legacy is still greatly revered! I studied in Azerbaijan and i still remember our history books have hundreds of references to his travel notes as they provide an invaluable window to the middle ages of Azerbaijani history, shahs, cities, poets and life. He described Tabriz - Southern Azerbaijan in great details and talked about the ancient empires who ruled Azerbaijan. His travels and life was an inspiration for a lot of us when we were kids, we all dreamt about travelling far and beyond like him. Maybe thats why i ended up here in Australia now 10 years later, 10k km away from Azerbaijan. This Video is amazing btw, thank you so much!

Ibn Battuta was unapologetically himself, i really admire that about him. Even though his amazing travels are what makes him famous and well loved- there are aspects of him that will trigger you- that's not to say he was a bad man by any stretch of the imagination, but his encounters and opinions were brutally honest. He DID expect gifts from the Elite and got upset when he didn't get any, he DID expect good food and a lavish care upon him upon his arrival, he DID take advantage of his status and had wives and kids that he knew he would abandon, he DID get offended at the sight of naked tribes and church bells ringing- but that's what i love about him- his honesty in his adventures, he really let the World know who he truly was- a remarkable traveller that had a taste of the good life and really couldn't get enough of it :)

I remember having to read his traveler's tales as an undergrad longer ago than I wish to admit. I remember being entranced by him, then exhausted by him, then sorry for him, and then I forgot about him. Enough of my own travels later I see this and see him differently. There is an Odinic quality to his seeking and that spirit moves me too. I wonder in an age of global communications and map completion is the journey that needs exploring is the one within? I'm sure now, with miles under my feet, that the inner journey is the point, and now I wonder if the inner journey was always possible from the start?

I wish I had sought out more about Ibn Firnas while I was in Baghdad 1980-85. I apologise if I missed a part of this piece that referred to Baghdad, I only know that there was a statue of the brave genius there. I did love hearing your immaculate pronunciation of the Arabic words! It took me back!

more underrated medival explorer is Benedict The Pole, he travelled with Pope's embassy to give a letter to the mongol khan, he travelled through Poland/Rus/pontic stepps and dessert to karracorum. He travelled few years before Marco Polo, and was the first source of knowledge for europeans of mongol empire. on TrashingMadPL channel is video about him, but in polish.

Maybe he's underrated in the west, but as a native of tangier myself, I can tell you that he is revered, avenues, the biggest middle school of the city and tangier airport are named after him and Moroccan children are taught about him all over the country. He remains a prominent figure of the Arab conquests Era which Arabs are nostalgic of.

He was such a fiery, crazy dude for doing what he did yet respectable due to his knowledge. I would love to host and chat with him if he is alive today. To travel and be accepted in many nations shows that he is humble yet accommodating every new culture he encountered. Sure, he got paid for jobs he took around the nation and received gifts due to being guest of important people but how he maintained all that through different culture, that is magnificent. Man got skills!

I have read some paper from a historian professor, that the muslim sailors helped columbus during his sailing, and even guided him towards america. this paper goes much deeper, explaining that south america was visited many times by arab speaking people long before the spaniards went there. and it makes sense when we look at people like ibn battuta. also worth mentioning. ibn battuta was a scientist. he wrote about the universe, solar system, and other physical laws. some can say he inspired people like galile and newton
Al Kinny
Al Kinny 6 meses atrás
To start with your claim Muslims guided Columbus to the Americas is so ignorant and hysterical He was trying to get to India instead of going round Africa So if they guided him to the Americas they didn't have a clue where they were And battuta didn't write anything He dictated his travels to a scholar and that's the extent of his work He didn't write about the universe or the solar system and no one with an ounce of credibility would claim he inspired Galileo Galilei or Newton And no Arab ever documented anything about the Americas Not one zero zilch
ArianitOnline 6 meses atrás
@Al Kinny I will get into the details about galileo not being the first to talk about the solar system and to prove that he was inspired by people before him. same for newton. he was propably reading ibn haythm's notes about gravity when the apple feel on his head. but as for columbus, yes, he might have had a muslim navigator. doesn't matter where columbus destination was, what matters is who was the navigator. maybe he too by accident guided columbus towards america or by purpose
Al Kinny
Al Kinny 6 meses atrás
@ArianitOnline @ArianitOnline why are you talking about ibn haythm When this video is about ibn battuta But since you mention him and claim he inspired Newton well seems you missed the fact that his total gravitational theory was nothing but what Aristotle already proposed in 1BC No surprise considering the middle age Muslims had all the classical Greek and Roman texts translated After Aristotle the 6th century Byzantine Alexandrian scholar John Philoponus modified the Aristotelian concept of gravity with the theory of impetus. then you say it doesn't matter where the destination was only who the navigator was That's just pathetic. He might of guided him to the Americas on purpose 😂😂 Well the thing is I was simply humouring you before but because your comment is even more unfounded than your first let me tell you that the pilot of the Santa Maria wasn't even a Muslim he was mixed race Spanish and African
ArianitOnline 6 meses atrás
@Al Kinny wait a minute. did you say that the pilot wasn't muslim but spanish and african??!?!? oh man. first of all, africa is a continent, so was he morrocean, algerian, egyptian, nigerian, what was he? and muslim is a person who follows a religion and has nothing to do with nationality. as I said, I have read a theory about columbus, I didn't say it was history!
