From this, this observer now ruminates on validity of who was the final conqueror of the Middle East when the one source that should tell the story cannot get the facts set straight as to how the Turkish Ottoman empire ended up as the supposed successor over the Persians from sources that are Arabic based, but not not in superior capacity as a Muslim world is not Arabic dominant. What is missing here; the contention that the facts are not from a kitab mubeen seem justified.
