Muhammad ibn ‘Abdullah, the great figure of the Islamic faith, is regarded by Muslims as the messenger and prophet of God and among the many great deeds and traits were those of the cunning mind of a military general. His sword is a symbol of his majesty and importance. His followers cherished every aspect of his life from teachings to physical possessions including his sword so it would be passed on to future generations and we are delighted they did.
The sacred relics in the treasury in Alexandria, as well as those with the Abbasid caliphs in Egypt were transferred to Istanbul. These relics were preserved with honor in the sultan’s throne room and for 400 years the Holy Qur’an was read next to them in reverence. Positively identified, the original sword now lies in the amazing collection in Topkapi Palace and is painstakingly reproduced for the first time.
This is the sword of the Messenger of God. Every single detail and element has been expertly reproduced by hand from the original to be an exact match down to the dazzling velvet presentation bag that accompanies the original relic embroidered with real 24K gold thread.
