Saladin. Prince of Chivalry
page 318

" Ο God, accept this soul, and open to him the gates of Heaven, that last victory for which he hoped." Nothing more characteristic of Saladin has survived to our day than these words spoken to ez-Zaher when the latter came to say farewell to his father at Jerusalem after the war, before setting out for the province of which he had been appointed ruler : " I commend you to God Almighty, the source of all good. Do the will of God, for that is the way of peace. Beware of bloodshed; trust not in that, for blood never sleeps. Seek to gain the hearts of thy subjects, and watch over all their interests, for thou art only appointed by God and by me to look after their good. Endeavor to satisfy thy emirs, thy ministers and thy nobles. It is by gentleness and kindness that I have arrived at my present power. Never nourish ill feeling against any man, for death spares none." THE Ift/TVffl END
