The Topkapi Palace (Turkish: Topkapi Sarayi) was the official residence of the Ottoman Sultans for some 400years (1465 to 1856).
Initial construction began in 1459, on the ordersof Sultan Mehmet II, the conqueror of Byzantine Constantinople. The TopkapiPalace soon became the administrative and cultural hub of the vast OttomanEmpire and a setting for state occasions. At its peak, it was home to as many as4,000 people.
Topkapi Palace started to lose its importance inthe 17th century, as the later Sultans preferred to spend more time in newerpalaces along the Bosphorus.
By 1923 the Ottoman Empire had collapsedcompletely. In 1924 the newly constituted Republic of Turkey , transformedTopkapi into a museum of the imperial era.
The Throne Room is now known as the Pavilion ofthe Sacred Trusts and is home to revered relics, such as the Prophet smantle. Numerous other artifacts used daily by the Prophet and his Companions,such as original letters of the Prophet, articles of clothing, swords, and shoesetc. are housed in the Topkapi Palace.
Yusuf Ali has translated verses 33:45-47 from surahAl-Ahzab as follows:
OProphet! Truly We have sent thee as a Witness, a Bearer of Glad Tidings, andWarner, - And as one who invites to Allah's (grace) by His leave, and as a lampspreading light. Then give the Glad Tidings to the Believers, that they shallhave from Allah a very great Bounty.
