Ibn Battuta was a man of Berber descent born in Tangier under the reign of the Marinid dynasty in February of 1304. He’s family was made up of Islamic legal scholars who belonged to the Lawata Berber tribe. Ibn Battuta himself would likely have studied at a Sunni Maliki school and was offered a job as a religious judge, but he would soon realize that his heart yearned for much, much more…

From my school book, the name "Sumatera" in Indonesia can be counted as the legacy from Ibn Battuta. When he visited Samudera Pasai Sultanate during his journey to China, he wrote the word "Sumatrah" for that place in his journal (maybe from the misspelling from the "Samudera" word). The word "Sumatrah" become the international name for the region and then for the island as well until today.

@Nitya The Doremon🤌🏻 As my answer before, the legacy of Ibn Battuta for the name "Sumatra" is cited from my school book and Wikipedia Indonesia also mention this (but not in Wikipedia English). This information is cited from our local historian, Hamka, in his book (published in 1950), "Sedjarah Islam di Sumatera". Sorry, the word Sumatera is the non-formal name for Sumatra. Many people in Indonesia (including me) still accidentally using "Sumatera" instead of "Sumatra".

@Zakir Naik Ahmad Deedat My schoolbook when I was in middle school. Wikipedia Indonesia also mention this. I think they using same citation from Hamka's book "Sedjarah Islam di Sumatera" (1950). But Wikipedia English did not mention this. They explain that earliest mention about "Sumatra" can be dated to 1017, far before Ibn Battuta came to this island.

@Son Of Rabat I haven't read Ibnu Battuta's notes, but I've read the travel accounts of Tome Pires and Ludovico di Varthema. Didn't sound like they hunt much, if any. Of course, those two had sponsors, so they can just procure provisions from any merchants they meet. I mean, sure, more people back then could hunt, but then we must ask, whether or not it was feasible. Especially during those solo journeys, what if the hunt fails? The part where you said they were hosted by someone soundds plausible though. Semitic cultures like the Arabs do encourage people to host strangers.

@Mario Prawirosudiro You're looking at history from the modern lens. Not a proper way to interpret history. Back in those days, people when traveling either hunt their food, get hosted by just saying they're messengers or passer by. Back in the days, people had more time to learn methods of survival. For example, it was common in arabia and north africa ti carry large sword, small sword, and arrow strapped carried on the horse. All he has to do, is hunt with an arrow, build a fire .....

He even arrived in Maldives, even now it’s hard for us to get out because we are disconnected from main continental lands, our only options are to fly, hardly locals use passenger ships, I can imagine how his journey would be back then. It’s stated that he was here around 9 months and served as a judge. Even though the journey was hard, he never had to apply for a Visa back then. In today’s age, he would have to apply to many Visas.

Ibn Battuta was unapologetically himself, i really admire that about him. Even though his amazing travels are what makes him famous and well loved- there are aspects of him that will trigger you- that's not to say he was a bad man by any stretch of the imagination, but his encounters and opinions were brutally honest. He DID expect gifts from the Elite and got upset when he didn't get any, he DID expect good food and a lavish care upon him upon his arrival, he DID take advantage of his status and had wives and kids that he knew he would abandon, he DID get offended at the sight of naked tribes and church bells ringing- but that's what i love about him- his honesty in his adventures, he really let the World know who he truly was- a remarkable traveller that had a taste of the good life and really couldn't get enough of it :)

He travelled in the Muslim world. Even though he was a Berber, Arabic was the de facto educational language in the diverse Muslim world from Morocco to Indonesia. Non Muslim nations such as India and Russia were under Muslim rule at that period of time and Ibn Battuta ususally stayed with Muslim community such as from his travel in China, Southern India and Sri Lanka.

Through translators I think. Islam was already spreading at the time, and so there would usually be some muslim merchants who can speak both Arabic and the local language. For me, the financing part is more mind-boggling.

in the most of middle eastern countries his legacy is still greatly revered! I studied in Azerbaijan and i still remember our history books have hundreds of references to his travel notes as they provide an invaluable window to the middle ages of Azerbaijani history, shahs, cities, poets and life. He described Tabriz - Southern Azerbaijan in great details and talked about the ancient empires who ruled Azerbaijan. His travels and life was an inspiration for a lot of us when we were kids, we all dreamt about travelling far and beyond like him. Maybe thats why i ended up here in Australia now 10 years later, 10k km away from Azerbaijan. This Video is amazing btw, thank you so much!

I’m so glad to see this video on him. My mom would always tell me stories about him when I was a child. She told me when she was in school in Lebanon they learned about him. On a side note, I love how everywhere he went he was welcomed by a king, a high ranking government official, or a wealthy and influential person. I feel like if I made that trek and I showed up I’d probably look homeless at which point they’d kick me out loll

He was such a fiery, crazy dude for doing what he did yet respectable due to his knowledge. I would love to host and chat with him if he is alive today. To travel and be accepted in many nations shows that he is humble yet accommodating every new culture he encountered. Sure, he got paid for jobs he took around the nation and received gifts due to being guest of important people but how he maintained all that through different culture, that is magnificent. Man got skills!

We Bangladeshis 🇧🇩 know Ibn Battuta well as he is studied in our education curriculum. So, as a Bangladeshi and particularly Chittagongian, I got goosebumps when on 12:20, the narrator takes the name of Chittagong, then Sylhet. I love Hazrat Shah Jalal Rahmat Ullah Alai. Surely that was the time when Muslims were having their golden time with political, intellectual and spiritual dominance.

@k k I get what you're trying to say but it's more appropriate to call it Bangladesh than India now. The Bengal Sultanate ("Saltanat-i Bangala" as it was actually called) was the wealthiest state in the world at the time with its own unique identity. As we know there was no state called Hindustan or India at the time (even in the colonial period, Bengalis often used "desh" to mean Bengal instead of India). The Portuguese knew it as "Bengala." Bangladesh is its successor.

Ibn Battuta is one of my favourite historical personalities. I have collected some very interesting books on and about his historical voyages around the globe. He was a brave, daring, and determined person to have successfully explored the world and to put down in his diary all the people, culture, and experiences he had learned during his sojourn. No one before or after Ibn Battuta had explored the world single-handedly and returned home safe. My prayers for his soul and for the parents he had lost.

@Gutsu what ? in Islam being a judge is one of the heaviest and less rewarding jobs there is ,and any who get rich by being a judge is suspected to be a thief so most Islamic states till 100 years ago used to appoint judges only if they come from rich family with high intellect and accomplishment or have a trade so no Ibn battuta did not become filthy rich ever nor did he want to be a judge despite his wealthy background ,and when he travelled without his family wealth or help he did what Muslims (usually arabs) used to do which is to make poem of a ruler or minister and if that ruler liked it he would buy it so do not go talking about things you dont have enough info about

@Dominique Alexandria Except Mali didn't give him anything, they gave him dates and milk when he was expecting Gold and slaves, he was very disappointed about it in his book

I wish I was at at this period of time. Imagine you’re in Mecca doing pilgrimage and then getting to know so many people from all around the world, each with a story on their journey and what they encountered along the way. You’d make so many friends that you won’t even see again or probably even hear about again in your life. The pilgrimage to Mecca alone meant that your life wouldn’t be the same again.

It's really amazing how Ibn Battuta travelled the world like it's his hometown. "Oh hold up, let me go check on Jerusalem before I go to Mecca"

In India his legacy still lives on, his adventures and experiences were introduced to us as kids through our school textbooks and we even have poems and songs about him here. Its quite fascinating really, the impact a solitary man can have

*Back in the day being a judge was as high as being king, so it would be fair to say Ibn Batutta was offered a VP JOB everywhere he went, Now that's Legendary itself*

My back, buttocks, legs, and feet are hurting from just watching this video. You'd be hard-pressed to find someone in todays day & age that has travelled as much as Ibn Batutta even with the aid and convenience of modern technology and transportation. If he had planes, cars, and motorbikes, his journey would've been 10 times greater than it already was.
