“I deeply admire Salahuddin Al-Ayyubi for his role as a firm war lord. He won several battle fields “said Prabowo in a discussion with DIGDAYA TV through Facebook channel. The discussion topic is LEADERSHIP.
“One of the tough opponents of Salahuddin Al-Ayyubi is the King of England Richard I and he is well-known as Richard the Lion Heart. They had encountered many times in the battle fields. In one battle, King Richard 1 and his troop were besieged by the troop of Salahuddin Al-Ayyubi, and King Richard I fell from his horse because he was exhausted severely. Prabowo tells this story like a professional story teller.
Seeing the situation of his enemy, Salahuddin Al-Ayyubi postponed his attack and asked his troops to pull back even he sent a horse to him. The reason for his action is that he assumed King Richard I is a very strong war lord, he doesn’t deserve to die while he wasn’t riding his horse. “Explained Prabowo, while he imitated Salahuddin’s statement”.
Until recently, Salahuddin Al-Ayyubi is being a golden record in Islam history and his nobility becoming role model for Western leaders in which he is well-known as Saladdin.
His sovereignty was from Africa to Persia. However, when he was getting old, he had nothing and lived in poverty. Even his shroud and funeral were asked from the kings whom he was conquered. “Said Prabowo in deep feeling”.
Nobility of Salahuddin Al-Ayyubi as a war lord has become his inspiration since he has experienced in the same way especially that he has also involved in the battle field.
Dear readers, do you agree that the story of Salahuddin’s nobility deserve to be taken as excellent example?
