Kingdom of Heaven (2005) Poster

Alexander Siddig: Imad


  • Saladin : Who defends?

    Imad : Balian of Ibelin, the son of Godfrey.

    Saladin : Godfrey? Godfrey nearly killed me in the Lebanon. Truly, I did not know he had a son.

    Imad : It was his son at Kerak.

    Saladin : The one you let live?

    Imad : Yes.

    Saladin : Perhaps you should not have.

    Imad : Perhaps I should have had a different teacher.

  • Imad : Your quality will be known among your enemies, before ever you meet them.

  • Imad : [a Saracen knight yells at Balian in Arabic]  He says, that is his horse.

    Balian of Ibelin : Why would it be his horse?

    Imad : Because it is on his land.

    Balian of Ibelin : I took this horse from the sea.

    Imad : [Imad translates, the knight yells again]  He says you are a great liar and he will fight you because you are a liar.

    Balian of Ibelin : I have no desire to fight.

    Imad : Then you must give him the horse.

    [Balian draws his sword] 

  • Nasir : [to Balian]  ... and if God does not love you, how could you have done the things you have done?

  • Imad : This is not a very good horse... I will not keep him.

    [he hands the reins to Balian] 

  • Mullah : [the mullah pays a visit to Saladin in his tent after the battle at Kerak]  Why did we retire? Why? God did not favor them. God alone determines the results of battles.

    Saladin : The results of battles ARE determined by God, but also by preparation, numbers, the absence of disease, and the availability of water. One cannot maintain a siege with the enemy behind. How many battles did God win for the Muslims before I came... that is, before God determined that I should come?

    Mullah : Few enough. That's because we were sinful.

    Saladin : It is because you were unprepared.

    Mullah : If you think that way, you shall not be king for long.

    Saladin : [Saladin rises to his feet]  When I'm not king, I quake for Islam. Thank you for your visit.

    [the mullah does not budge; Saladin takes a step forward and extends his hand] 

    Saladin : Thank you for your visit.

    [the mullah takes his meaning and grasps the offered hand] 

    Mullah : You promised. You promised to return Jerusalem. Don't forget.

    [he leaves] 

    Saladin : If I do not deliver war, I have no peace.

    Imad : The King of Jerusalem will die soon. When he is dead, the boy will become king of a kingdom he cannot control. The Christians will make the war you need.

  • Nasir : You reap what you sow. You have heard of this, no?

  • Imad : [discussing how to break Jerusalem's defenses]  The wall where the Christopher Gate used to be has been weakened.

    Saracen Engineer : Yes, usually when a gate is blocked in, it is weaker than the wall around it.

    Mullah : Or stronger.

    Imad : It is weaker, Rashid has seen it. This will be our door into Jerusalem.
