So, we’ve gone a bit ‘Ertuğrul’ crazy here at Amaliah HQ, and if you haven’t caught on, where have you been?
Turkish soap-opera saga, ‘Diriliş: Ertuğrul’ (or ‘Ressurection: Ertuğrul) has become an international sensation since its launch in 2014, and with Netflix picking up the show late last year, there’s no sign of it slowing down.
The show is a part fictional drama that follows the lives of the Kayi tribe of the 13th century Muslim Oghuz Turks, and their leader Ertuğrul. It’s been dubbed the ‘Turkish Game of Thrones’ for its action packed storylines, but it’s gained most of its notoriety in the international Muslim community for its fun, clean entertainment factor, impeccable portrayal of Islamic virtues, and strong female characters. –
This week, Hiba Khan dropped an incredible article over on amaliah.com about how the show has brought her closer to her faith, and we’re sure she’s not the only one. –
We couldn’t resist making a little video about it to join the ranks of the fans! Enjoy!
