For the church bells in episode 3 Ibn Battuta was afraid because of the way they ring bells, btw everybody knows that at that time there are many houses of worship for the Abrahamic faiths across the Muslim world and some of them remained extremely well-preserved till this day. Islam teach us as Muslims to respect all Abrahamic faiths houses of worship

I think the lies episodes are really important! They give the artistic freedom necessary to make the story part really engaging, while clearing out misunderstandings, expanding on what needs further explanation, and of course, correcting the itty bitty little things that sneak in that are not quite correct.
DragoniteSpam 3 yıl önce
When they first started doing the EH Lies videos I thought they felt kind of like a "we are obligated to do this" thing, but nowadays I really like them a lot. The bits that are "historians disagree about this part of the story, but we went with this version because of these reasons" or "we had to cut out a few things because of time constraints, but you should totally go find out more yourself" make the whole thing even more interesting.

I am Moroccan and live in tangier not far from ibn battuta's Tomb. about why ibn battuta was scared by the bell sound, is not really a thing anymore, but when I was a child, I used to take pots from the kitchen and abused them as a drum set, my grandmother didn't like it at all, she told me that the sound drives away angels and she told me that more than on one occasion, even if loud music was playing. what is still used is like if someone is bad at singing it is said that he even drives devils away, maybe that evolved from that belief.

Thank you for the series. It was really enjoyable. Just to confirm the whole series is based on your reading of partial translations and abridgements of the book? Also, his desire for wealth and fame, did Ibn Batutah admit this himself or this was an inference from the book?

It's really interesting and set in a time period you said you were interested in (18th century england). A lot of players mentioned on Extra History like John Law, Walpole, Charles Hitchen, and Jonathan Wild are in the book. Not saying you have to make an episode out of it, but I think you would enjoy the book.

My family have a translated ver of Ibn Battuta travel, I read it with my friend while he mostly jump on the interesting stuff like the Uzbek khan wealth and how his wife's dresses decorated in gems, unlike him I read the whole book, I hope this side stories include in ibn Battuta side trip series. There's a story about a man name hassan the mad and the whole background why he became mad, then there's a story where a false accusations on one of King's governor or son and so the king send a elite messanger where he can cover a one month travel distance in 3 or 4 days to cancel the execution, I didn't remember if ibn juzay commented on this but it's fascinating and bizzare side story. I read it almost 5 years ago probably I forgot some detail too yet from watching this series it makes me what to revisit and read it again.

Actually, I've looked up some arabic muslim sources, and indeed. According to mainstream Sunni Islam, the sounds of bells (including church bells) are considered offensive. According to Sahih Muslim (one of the two canon texts that sunni muslims believe to be authentic sources of the prophet Muhammad's sayings aka. Hadith) the prophet is quoted as saying - and this is my translation - : "The Angels despise the company of dogs and bells" and in another saying: "Bells are the instruments of the devil." Therefore it makes sense for a committed sunni islamic scholar, and especially one of the Maliki school known for its relative conservatism, to be quite offended by bells, as to him, the prophet explicitly said that Angels (whom are the agents of god) dislike them.

I mean, that is the problem with hadith, the books of imam bukhari and muslim are incredibly important but have some of the most problematic sayings that may have never happened if you actually research the history. It's one of those texts that you have to take with a pinch of salt, especially for the lay person. Otherwise, i'm certain ibn battuta probably did follow this idea from the books. I know in our culture, indo pak, people view dogs as unclean and don't keep them in their houses from fear of scaring off angels. But in actuality it doesn't really matter if you keep a dog, the only thing unclean about them is their saliva, which will affect your ability to pray. Even animal urine is considered a light filth (ascent to felicity book), meaning the ruling on getting it on your clothing isn't as strict, as say with human urine or dung.

I'm Moroccan from Fez city, when i was a child, i was totally prevented from whistling (with my mouth) inside the house, because my father and my granparents believed that whsitling sound calls for demons and expels angels from the house. So i think probably the bell sound is related to this...

Hi , regarding bell whistles expelling angels... Check that one, it is probably the opposite. I’ve heard accounts of the old on how christian religion displaced pagan gods of basque country and the tale is just the opposite. It is often told that church bells made Lamiak (women with duck feet, abandon the rivers they inhabited). This is a poetic way to talk about a real event (disappearance of paganism) in a much later era than it took place. Nevertheless, myths build upon each other, so probably the metaphor is just the opposite one: Bell whistles scaring away “daemons”

Hi Extra History, i just want to tell you about Urduja in your video. Actually Urduja itself referred to Third Female King (Which is Queen) of Majapahit Empire named Tribhuwana Tungga Dewi. Her title was Bhre Daha (Duchess of Daha). The term Urduja itself was a deviation term from Bhre Daha to Arabic WHR DAJA then eventually became Urdaja in the western spelling. Then again, you have mentioned about the animosity between China and the Kingdom of Tawalisi (Urduja's Kingdom according to Ibn Battutah). Actually as you have mentioned in your Majapahit videos, Mongol and Majapahit were involved in conflict during 1293 (Mongol Invasion to Java) and luckily Majapahit could expelled the Mongol forces at that time. And you know what, According to Ibn Battutah Tawalisi had many War Junk to wage war with China. Majapahit at that time were known for its massive Junk called Jong or Javanese Junk. You can search it on google. Thank you en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urduja en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tawalisi en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Majapahit en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tribhuwana_Wijayatunggadewi en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Djong_(ship)

Also good catch on the "seek knowledge even from China". Its true that it is frequently attributed to the Prophet Muhammad which doesn't seem to be the case according to scholars of hadeeth

When talking about "embellishments" to Marco Polo, we must remember that he didn't do the embellishments. Example: All manuscripts of Marco Polo's Travels use the word "Sojurna" (I visited) all printed texts use the term "Governa" (I ruled). As late as 1700 a Chinese Scholar visiting Rome when to a printer shop to get the printer to update the text with information on "modern" China. The printer gladly and proudly let the Chinese Scholar rewrite the text.

He definitely went to China. He has some details in his account that arent in any other contemporary writings like the fakir rope trick with the chinese version that has decapitations.

Thanks for mentioning Here is a little bit of explanation regard to the hadeeth mentioned, “Seek knowledge even if you have to go as far as China, for seeking knowledge is a duty on every Muslim,” Shaykh al-Albaani said in Da’eef al-Jaami’: “(It is) fabricated.” (no. 906). The proven hadeeth is that which was narrated by Ibn Maajah from the hadeeth of Anas ibn Maalik, who said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Seeking knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim.’” (220.

sounds like the Ibn Battuta account suffers many of the same issues that the Marco Polo account does in terms of accuracy.

I'm so excited about all these Islamic world focused series. Will you be doing a Rise of Islam series in the future? I think that would be a really special episode for sure, to focus on the rise of the prophet Muhammad from a shepherd and a merchant to a religious and political leader.
10:23 it is actually true and not only for bells but also for dogs and hyenas. They scare angles.

North African here: I never heard of the bells things, BUT. Here (Tunisia) any whisteling sound that isn't either flute or cicada made is believed to attract demons and the devil, and whisteling is heavily frownd upon in some places, especially in conservative areas. Maybe the fear of bell sounds originated from that at the start?
