A true heir to the Ottoman legacy, Mehmet was a ๐˜€๐—ธ๐—ถ๐—น๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐˜, ๐—ฎ ๐—ณ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—น๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฎ ๐—ฑ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ above all. He wished to fulfill this prophecy and engaged all his resources towards the planning and strategy of what will eventually be one of the most historic events in the course of history. In a thousand years the city had been besieged around twenty three times, including the famous siege by Muslims in the 7th century, during which the Prophetโ€™s (SAW) companion Hazrat Abu Ayub Ansari (RA) breathed his last.

Sultan Mehmet eventually did, fulfill the prophecy, immortalizing himself as the ๐™๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ (the Victorious) of the Muslim world, for centuries to come.
