Kingdom of Heaven (2005)
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.
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.
