Video: Why did the Imam in Hagia Sophia give a Friday sermon holding a sword?

He delivered a sermon holding a sword, which is a tradition of the Ottoman Caliphate and is considered a symbol of victory.

Professor Ali Erbash holds a sword in his left hand, which on the one hand conveys a message of terror to the hearts of the enemy and on the other hand gives a message of strength and confidence to the allies.
