They sold the lineage of the Prophet
After they failed to attribute themselves to him
The professor at Istanbul University, Ismail Hakki Izmirli, was not satisfied with the wrong historical inference about the lineage of the Prophet Muhammad, but he relied on illogical assumptions, including that the Prophet used to perform I’tikaaf in a Turkish marquee, which indicates the Prophet’s nostalgia for his origin. This matter has nothing to do with a person’s longing for his origin, rather it is a personal matter of the Prophet Muhammad. Izmirli reiterates assumptions that are inconsistent with scientific facts and do not require evidence or proof of their validity.
They made assumptions that are inconsistent with logic, science, and knowledge of history and genealogy.
Izmirli mentions in the interpretation that the Prophet Muhammad used to mention the good qualities of the Turks, and says: “let the Turks alone as long as they leave you alone”. They interpret this hadith as a demonstration of the Prophet Muhammad’s love for the Turks due to his ethnic connection with them, while the hadith does not include any praise for the Turks. Indeed, there are hadiths that confirm that the Turks are the enemies, and that they will fight the Muslims in the epic of the end time. Abu Hurairah narrated that the Messenger of Allah said: “The Day of Resurrection does not come until you fight a people who make their sandals from hair. The Day of Resurrection does not come until you fight a people whose faces are rough and rounded with thick flesh”. [In another narration]: their eyes are small; their noses are short and curved and their faces are rough and rounded with thick flesh”. (Sahih Al-Bukhari: 2929). The explanation of the hadith is: The Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, informs about one of the signs that will take place before the Resurrection. It is that the Muslims will fight a people who make their sandals out of hair, or that they lengthen their hair until the ends of their feet at the position of the sole. Also, from their characteristic features is that their faces are like gears made of leather, which are used to prevent sword strikes in war, and which are mounted layer upon layer. What is meant here is that their faces are rough and rounded with thick flesh. They can also be described that their eyes are small and their noses are short and curved. These are the descriptions of the Turks, the Tatars, and the Mongols.
They said: The Prophet spent his time in a Turkish marquee because he yearns for his Turkish origin.
