Ataturk was a Muslim

How can we say that Ataturk was Muslim?
Lets see what he said about his religion:

O My Nation! Allah is the One. His glory is sublime. May Allah’s peace, grace and goodness be upon you. The principles He laid down are the verses in the Glorious Qur’an. Our religion that granted the spirit of knowledge is the last religion. It is the most perfect religion because unless our religion had complied with reason, the truth and wisdom, there would have to be some discrepancies between divine and natural laws. It is Almigthy Allah Who makes all divine laws.” (Ataturk’S and D, v. 2, p. 93)

Clearly, this statement shows his love for his religion Islam. Yet some people try to present him as some anti-Islamic or some Freemason or Jewish. Why would any person who is jew distribute the Free copies of Quran among his nation? Does this make any sense? No it does not.

Ataturk was a very good Muslim and he loved Islam and Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.). We can see his love for Islam and Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) in Ataturk’s following part of a speech:

Those who doubt that he is a true prophet should look at this map and read the epic of Badr. The victory that the Prophet Muhammad (saas) won with a handful of devout Muslims against the vast and wealthy horde of the Qur’aysh is not the work of a mortal man. That battle is the most explicit proof of his Prophethood“. (Ataturk and Religious Education, Department of Religious Affairs Press, p. 2)

Can you pay someone for beating you in a war???

I came across a Facebook page which was promoting an idea that Ataturk and other nationalist freedom fighters of Turkey won the war against the strong allied enemy forces. They used to ask “how did they do that?” and then to answer their own question they used to say “actually, Ataturk and other nationalists were funded by west and they were allies of enemy.”

To those people who beieve this to be true, I question:

If you earn something, would you pay someone to snatch it from you? No!
So when Britain and other enemies defeated Ottoman Empire and took their lands, why would they pay someone to snatch those lands back from Britain and other forces?
This just do not make sense!

The fact is, when Turkish nationalists forces started to liberate  Turkey from enemy occupation, the western powers were running out of weaponry and troops. They were not able to control their occupation in Middle East. This gave a massive chance to nationalist forces of Turkey and they fought back their lands and won their freedom.
