I am here, Saladin.
I am Saladin, the leader of the Muslims. I was sincere in many ways, and some of the complimentary things written about me were true. But I was not exempt from punishment. I did things that were wrong. In this world of spirits, I have learned to revise my thinking. I was zealous for the faith, but here, I feel differently. We spirits are naked, and we cannot escape who we are.
I will answer your concern. If our stories seem similar, it is only because spirits are all subject to the same laws. We want to be a witness to the truth, and that is why we have come to you with our stories, because we want people to believe in the truth.
S.ala-h. ad-Di-n Yu-suf ibn Ayyu-b , Selah’edine Eyubi) (c. 1138 – March 4, 1193), better known in the Western world as Saladin, was a Kurdish Muslim, who became the first Ayyubid Sultan of Egypt and Syria. He led Islamic opposition to the Franks and other European Crusaders in the Levant. At the height of his power, he ruled over Egypt, Syria, Mesopotamia, Hejaz, and Yemen. He led the Muslims against the Crusaders and eventually recaptured Palestine from the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem after his victory in the Battle of Hattin. As such, he is a notable figure in Kurdish, Arab, and Muslim culture. Saladin was a strict adherent of Sunni Islam and a disciple of the Qadiri Sufi order. His chivalrous behavior was noted by Christian chroniclers, especially in the accounts of the siege of Kerak in Moab, and despite being the nemesis of the Crusaders he won the respect of many of them, including Richard the Lionheart; rather than becoming a hated figure in Europe, he became a celebrated example of the principles of chivalry.
