Topkapi Palace was the residence of many Sultans and welcomed many visiting kings and ambassadors for centuries. However, what makes the palace so special is not only the former residents, but the Sacred Relics, which include personal belongings of prophets. Excavated from the most private and hidden rooms of the palace, the entire selection is compiled here for the first time, including those that are not on exhibit for daily visits.  

The items that belonged to the Prophet are called Amanat (Trusts), while the items belonging to other great Muslims or sacred places are called Tabarrukat (Sacred Objects). Today, all the items are called “Sacred Relics,” but in the past they were registered as Blessed Relics ( Al-Amanat al-Mubaraka)

The Ottomans did not attribute any holiness to material objects; yet, they were well aware that property belonging to the Messenger of God had a share of divine blessings

About the Author Hilmi Aydin, currently the manager of the Division of Sacred Relics at the Museum, has photographed and presented this absolutely unique collection in a hardbound book of 352 pages.  The hundreds of full color photographs are of excellent quality. The captions are both scholarly and sensitive. Everything about the book is world class.


'Do ye make the giving of drink to pilgrims, or the maintenance of the sacred Mosque, equal to (the pious service of) those who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and strive with might and main in the cause of Allah. They are not comparable in the sight of Allah. and Allah guides not those who do wrong.'

{TM Qur'an 9:19At-Tauba (The Repentance) 


'The prophet is closer to the believers than their own selves, and his wives are their mothers. Blood-relations among each other have closer personal ties, in the Decree of Allah. Than (the Brotherhood of) believers and Muhajirs: nevertheless do ye what is just to your closest friends: such is the writing in the Decree (of Allah)'

{TM Qur'an Al-Ahzab 33:6}
