The sixteenth century AD was marked for the Levant. Islamic BankWith a bitter conflict with the Portuguese, who set out from Portugal on exploratory naval expeditions in search of a trade route that spoils the Muslims their trade and exhausts their strength, motivated them to take revenge on the Muslims, spread Christianity and form an ancient empire far away, and the young Ottoman Empire emerged as the protector and savior of Muslims from that imminent danger.

Despite the great interests and preoccupations of that country in its expansions and wars within Europe, Against the Safavid state, However, it repelled the malevolent Portuguese invasion as soon as the circumstances came, This was after the Ottoman rule settled in the Levant, Egypt, the Hijaz, Yemen and Iraq.

The conflict between them often took on the character of naval battles. The Ottoman Empire assumed its tasks towards the Arab regions and defended them. Islamic sanctities were protected, It kept as much as possible the eastern trade passing through the Arab and Ottoman lands. There is no doubt that the actions carried out by the Ottoman Empire were of importance by preserving the cohesion of the Arab provinces to which it was subjected and preserving them from the Portuguese threat. Which is the least that can be appreciated for her.
