Both Christian and Islamic Eschatology provide startling and dramatic evidence of a Russian tryst with destiny. It remains an abiding mystery that the Roman Catholic Church and Protestantism both seem to be either unaware of this subject, or lack interest in it.
Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) prophesied that the Malhama (i.e., Armageddon) will be followed by a conquest of Constantinople. The Ottoman (so-called) Islamic Empire waged unjust war on RUM (i.e., the Eastern Orthodox Christian world) for almost 500 years in a futile effort to sabotage that End-time alliance of Muslims with RUM which will conquer Constantinople.
The conquest of Constantinople indicates that Russia will survive the Malhama and that the Russian navy is destined to play a significant role in the liberation of the Holy Land from Zionist godlessness, decadence and oppression.
We have built the foundation of this lecture on the Qur’an. When Ahadith are in harmony with that foundation from the Qur’an, they are embraced and they then expand our understanding. But when they are in disharmony, or in conflict, with that foundation from the Qur’an, then such Ahadith cannot be preferred to the foundation derived from the Qur’an.

Constantinople (Greek: Κωνσταντινούπολις, Konstantinoúpolis; Latin: Constantinopolis; Ottoman Turkish: قسطنطینیه,Qostantiniyye; and modern Turkish: İstanbul) was the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire, the Latin and the Ottoman Empires. It was founded in AD 330, at ancient Byzantium as the new capital of the Roman Empire by Constantine I, after whom it was named. The city was the largest and wealthiest European city of the Middle Ages, and shared the glories of the Byzantine Empire, which was eventually reduced to the city and its environs.
Although besieged on numerous occasions by various peoples, it was taken only in 1204 by the army of the Fourth Crusade, in 1261 by Michael VIII, and in 1453 by the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II. An inner wall was erected by Constantine I, and the city was surrounded by a triple wall of fortifications, begun during the 5th century by Theodosius II. The city was built on seven hills as well as on the Bosphorus, and thus presented an impregnable fortress enclosing magnificent palaces, domes and towers. The Church of Hagia Sophia, the sacred palace of the emperors, the hippodrome, and theGolden Gate were among the largest of the many churches, public edifices, and monuments lining the arcaded avenues and squares.
