Praise be to Almighty Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Servant and Messenger, Muhammad Mustafa!
Since about March 2020, we have been going through a difficult and troublesome process caused by disasters such as the Covid-19 virus epidemic, earthquake and flood, which still swept our country and the whole world. It has been understood once again that health is the greatest blessing and the greatest value of human being. Because during the pandemic process in question, we lost our precious teachers and relatives -May God have mercy on us-, and some of them got sick -May God give them a speedy recovery, get well soon-. Our lifestyles and habits have been affected almost entirely. Our science-research and education-teaching conditions became more difficult. We have been away from our schools, students and colleagues for months.
Even if our hearts are a little sad, we are happy to meet you again, we are proud. We are happy because SAD (Journal of Siyer Studies), the first academic siyer journal of our country, is 5 years old. We are proud because our magazine is now scanned in many indexes. Undoubtedly, we will continue to increase our efforts to raise the bar even higher and to offer you more qualified academic studies. As long as my Lord gives health and protects us from all kinds of epidemics and disasters.
Despite all these difficulties, we tried to present you with a rich content. On this occasion, valuable scientists who contributed to our journal with their valuable articles, Prof. Dr. Bünyamin Erul, Prof. Dr. To M. Hanefi Palabiyik, Assoc. Dr. Emrah Dindi, Dr. Korkut Dindi for both his research article and translations by Dr. To Lecturer Hakan Temir, young researcher Muhammed Karaca, our veteran professor Prof. Dr. We would like to express our special gratitude to Hüseyin Algül and the founder of the Siyer Foundation, Muhammed Emin Yıldırım. We would also like to thank our esteemed professors who took the time to turn down our refereeing offers. Bless the hearts and pens of all our teachers, who shed their efforts and light.
Finally, our young historian, who took over the duty of assistant editor from our brother Kürşat, Dr. Instructor I welcome member Hakan Temir to join us. In addition, Ar. See. Ali Tekkoyun, the esteemed members of our editorial board, the directors of the Siyer Foundation, all of his employees, especially Muhammed Ali Alioğlu and Mesher Şeker, should be remembered with gratitude.
We entrust ourselves to God to meet you in our 10th issue. Best regards!..
