A RULER IS THE ONE WHO KNOWS THE
WAY, GOES THE WAY AND SHOWS THE
WAY.
INTRODUCTION
ABDUL REHMAN III
GREAT MUSLIM RULER
INTRODUCTION
• Abdar-Rahman III reigned as the most powerful
prince of the Ummayad dynasty in Spain.
• He lived from 891 to 961.
• As a young man he received an excellent education
under the ulema of Cordoba
INTRO
• First, he successfully established a centralized government in
Spain and built a powerful army and navy.
• Then, through military action, he successfully broke ties with
the aristocracy of the world
INTRODUCTION
• He made Islamic Spain a cultural center of the world
and his capital Cordoba the largest city in Europe.
• Moorish Spain was the center from which medical
education in Europe largely came from.
BEGINNING OF HIS REIGN
• His character and exemplary conduct won him the
allegiance of the court and the common man alike.
• His first act after becoming the ruler of Spain was to
abrogate all taxes that were not in accordance with
the Shariah.
CHALLENGES
• Upon ascending the throne, the young ruler faced
two major challenges.
• The first was from the Arab aristocracy based in the
old Visigoth capital city of Toledo.
• The second was the military-ideological challenge
from the Fatimids who had made no secret of their
desire to conquer Spain.
The challenge from the Arab aristocracy
• The court of Cordoba was sustained by the allegiance
of these tribes.
• They had harbored a long-standing grudge against Cordoba
for moving the capital out of Toledo.
• The principalities of Bobastro, Badejoz, Zamorra, Simancas,
Osma and Toledo were subdued one by one.
COMPAIGNS AGAINST CHRISTIAN
• In 920 he stopped the southward advance of King
Ordoño III of León and in 924 sacked Pamplona, the
capital of Navarre.
Challenge from the Fatimids
• The challenge from the Fatimids was far more
serious.
• A renegade Spanish chieftain, Omar bin Hafsun, who
had become a Christian, openly challenged the rule
of Cordoba and sought the help not only of the
Fatimids but also of the Christian principalities
Challenge from the Fatimids
• ʿAbd al-Raḥmān captured 70 forts which had been
controlled by Ibn Ḥafṣūn.
• When Ibn Ḥafṣūn died in 917, the rebellion
collapsed.
Defeat of Enemies
• The breakup of tribal influence enabled Abdur
Rahman to establish a standing professional army of
more than 150,000, perhaps the finest in the world
at that time.
ANNOUNCEMENT AS CALIPH
• ʿAbd al-Raḥmān
adopted the title of
caliph in 929.
State Matters and Justice
He kept a very strict
control over the affairs of
state and his civil service.
The Caliph made no
distinction between his
own household and the
common man in matters of
justice.
Every person had a right to
freely participate in his
religious activities.
Cosmopolitan Urban Center
• In his period, Cordova became
the most cultured city of
Europe.
• The city had more than
100,000 homes, 80,000
shops,70 libraries, 700
mosques and 900 public baths
with population exceeding
more than one million.
• The streets were paved and
were patrolled.
Trade and Agriculture
• Seville, one of the greatest of its river ports, exported
cotton, olives and sugar.
• Arab money was in use in the Christian kingdoms
• Agriculture received particular attention and Spain
became an agricultural paradise.
Industries
• The capital boasted some thirteen thousand weavers
and a flourishing leather industry.
• Almeria also produced glass ware and brass work.
• The art of inlaying steel flourished there.
Architectural Achievement and Education
• The construction of Madinat az
Zahra and the great mosque of
Cordoba.
• The Islamic universities of
Nizamiyah and Mustansariya at
Baghdad, the Al-Azhar of Cairo,
and the universities of Cordova
and Salerno diffused knowledge
to students composed of all
communities who flocked to
these seats of learning from
distant parts of the world.
The Jewel of The World
• Never before was Spain
so prosperous.
• His reign and that of his
two successors mark
the height of Muslim
rule in the west.
Zenith of Islamic Civilization
• Abdur Rahman III passed away in the year 961 and
was buried at Madinat-az-Zahra. His reign marked
the zenith of Islamic civilization in Spain and the
pinnacle of its golden age.
He said “There is nothing impossible to him who will try.”
ALEXANDER– THEGREAT
SIKANDAR-E-AZAM
Alexander the Great is one of
history's greatest and most
enduring enigma.
He Achieved undying
fame as history’s golden boy- a
hero with youth , intellect &
beauty. But as the Greeks said,
“ Those whom the GOD love die
young.
UNCOVERINGTHELEGEND
Alexander, was born on July 20, 356 B.C.E. 32 years and eight
months old.
He was tutored by the famous Greek philosopher Aristotle for
several years.
He developed a great respect for the Greek culture, literature, and
science. Alexander took geographers and other scientists with his
army to expand his knowledge of plants, animals, and
geography. Alexander proved himself to be an incredible military
commander.
LIFE&PERSONALITYTRAITS
ARISTOTLE taught him an appreciation for the fine arts of music,
poetry, and drama, Philosophy, medicine, botany, zoology, and
geography & Inspired him with a love for poetry and Greek
culture
Alexander the Great is the most fascinating and enigmatic man in
all of history. Any thorough study of his life is likely to yield a
highly confused portrait of this great conqueror and king I SEE
HIM as a man motivated by a need to explore the WORLD
I had rather excel others in the knowledge of what is excell
WhatmadeAlexander'Great?
The Alexander was fearless, charismatic, a
brilliant tactician, a genius at leading men and
empires, and an intensely curious intellectual.
Nothing stopped him. After more than 2,300
years, his name rings in memory, and his
exploits still exhaust superlatives Now I will
showers light on his life and death,
memorably likens him to a human flame.
CAREER- UNMATCHABLE
Alexander's career depicts both filmy and fiction life.
By the year 331 BC, before he was 26, he had
conquered the Persian empire, the largest on earth,
comprising modern Turkey, Egypt, the Mid-East,
Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan, as well as parts
of Central Asia Soviet Union & even China., Asia
Minor and modern Syria, Lebanon and Judea, then
last but not the least scooped up Egypt
GREATESTBATTLES
The greatest of
Alexander's battles was
against Porus, one of the
most powerful Indian
leaders.
Alexander captured
Porus and, like the other
local rulers he had defeated,
allowed him to continue to
govern his territory.
ALEXANDER-theinvincible!
 Alexander felt that the best thing to do was to be decisive and
swift. Alexander liked drama, the flute and the lyre, poetry and
hunting. What he truly wanted in his life was glory and valor,
rather than easy living and riches.
 His empire reshaped the world politically and intellectually
and profoundly shaped the development of modern Western
civilization.
TheLegacyofAlexander theGreat
In his short career,
Alexander developed an
empire of over one million
square miles.
Everywhere he conquered,
he spread the Greek
language and culture. After
his death, his kingdom was
divided into three separate
kingdoms.
MotivesinMotion
Some of you may see him as a tremendous human lightning-bolt that flashed across
nearly one third of the planet. For them Alexander is a visionary internationalist, bringing
Greek culture and ideas everywhere he went.
Some of you may called him a madman, a mass-murderer, an alcoholic, an egomaniacal
tyrant, a self centered bone-collector who killed some of his dearest friends.
Look Friends No one, before or since, did what MY HERO did. He seemed to dare the
whole world to oppose him, to show him the limits of ambition, strength and courage.
The world, as if dazed and dream struck, bowed down and yielded nearly all to him.
I
Innovative&BrilliantMilitaryCommander
• Alexander was the most brilliant military commander
in Greek history, a far-seeing statesman who made the
Macedonian army into the most ferocious fighting
machine the world had yet seen.
Innovative:
Macedonian infantry massed six deep, carrying razor- pointed, thin-
bladed spears 18 feet long, called "sarissae," which they handled like
pole-vaulters, two- handedly, so that the entire formation looked like an
angry, lethal porcupine.
ALEXENDERTHEDIVINE?
 A Theory was here that Alexander was poisoned by friends
who were worn out by his brilliance, egotism and ambition,
and that the murder was hushed up with a cover-story that
he died of illness.
 He died as mortals must, slain most likely by a malarial
mosquito, but not before achieving immortality in human
memory.
Alexander the Great
A Mystery
mystery (aAlexander the Great shall remain a fascinating
one) for a very long time.
Huge armies with elephants, vast distances, dizzying mountains,
unaffordable rivers, uncrossable deserts, hunger, thirst, the sea itself, the
uttermost extremes of physical hardship and battle –
he had 21 healed wounds in his body when he died – nothing on earth
could halt Alexander the Great.
Q&A
He was unquestionably
great; “You either Love
him or you Hate him. He's
very black and white."
Abraham Lincoln
-A politician who
served as the
16th President of
the United States
• Abraham Lincoln was born on 12th February 1809
and died on 15th April 1865
• He was in politician (16th president of United States)
since 1861 and was assassinated in April 1865 as he
led the war through civil war and political crisis
• Abraham Lincoln was born in Kentucky in a poor family
and became a lawyer in Illinois. He resumed his law
practice after serving eight years in the legislature and
two years in Congress.
• Lincoln was considered a hero in US this is because In
his view, the Union was worth saving not only for its
own sake but because it embodied an ideal.
• He was not in favour of the opening of the western
prairie lands to slavery, he then returned to politics in
1854. He was the leader in anti-slavery Democrats.
• In 1840, Lincoln got engaged to Mary Todd (who was known to hail
from a wealthy family) however, the two broke off their engagement
just before their wedding soon after.
• In 1842, they met again and got married on 4th November. During their
wedding when asked where he was going he replied “to hell, I
suppose”. This was due to his anxiety issues.
• Lincoln had four children however, three of them had passed away
(before the age of 18) due to illness however, one of the child named
Robert was the only child of Abraham Lincoln to live to adulthood.
• Lincoln was very fond of his children and the death of his children
became the reason for his condition “melancholy” also known as
depression. Mary also suffered from anxiety after losing her husband
and children.
• In 1858 he gained attention from the nation whilst debating
top national Democratic leader Stephen A. Douglas. He was
then chosen to be then western candidate for presidential
nomination 1860. And won the election and became the
president in 1860. As he won the election in North, Southern
pro-slavery elements believed that North was rejecting
Constitutional rights of Southern States to promote slavery.
• Lincoln stood up for public office due to his interest
in public issues. Once, he criticised President Folk’s
handling of the American-Mexican War however, this
did not interest the public and was not re-elected in
the period of his Congress.
Assassination
Lincoln was assassinated by John
Wilkes Booth and died just before
Confederate General Robert E. Lee
surrendered his massive army at
Appomattox Court House. This
effectively ended the American Civil
war. His death was widely mourned
across the country due to his vital
role as the leader in preserving the
Union during the Civil War. Which
eventually ended slavery in United
States.

appreciated

• Awareness of Own Weaknesses
• Ability to Control Emotions
• Know How to Relax and Replenish
• Go Out into the Field and Manage Directly
• Strength to Adhere to Fundamental Goals
• Ability to Communicate Goals and Vision
These leadership qualities helped him achieve his targets as a
ruler
During his presidency
 Lincoln’s life had many ups and downs; his early poverty to his heights of station
and of power
 He was intensely practical during his presidency.
 He never thought his conclusions would be accepted however, he knew that he
was always right and never relied upon authority of dictation.
 He understood that in order to lead a nation in emergency he had to bring certain
forces into action and those actions would bring the nation some benefits.
 He was patient and ought to understand what principles he had to maintain and
ensure that he avoid quarrel which cause damage to the Union cause during his
time as a ruler.
The highest qualities of him had been valued quite often during his
time.
 Genuineness- sympathy for all fellow men
 Sense of proportion- He knew intuitively what was big and
important and what was unimportant
 He never thought himself as a ruler in fact always thought about
how to put an end to slavery and to preserve the nation
