Imad Quotes in Kingdom of Heaven (2005)
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?
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]
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.
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.
