Abu al-Qasim bin 'Abd al-Hakam (ca. 798/9 - 871) is one of four 'Abd al-Hakams who belong to an influential family of scholars of ninth-century Egypt. This particular Abu al-Hakam is primarily known for his work titled Futuh Misr, or The Conquest of Egypt, North Africa and Spain (also known as The Conquest of Egypt and the West). Beginning with the admonition to respect the original Coptic inhabitants of the country, the book gives a history of Egypt that commences with legendary early beginnings and ends in the seventh century. It then gives a recital of the subsequent conquests of North Africa and Spain. The book ends with two exhaustive appendixes covering the major judges of Egypt down to the year 860. It also includes a list of the companions of the Prophet who came to Egypt, and the Hadiths transmitted there on their authority. "The oldest preserved work on the subject."--Frank Rosenthal, Brill's Encyclopedia of Islam

Seeing Islam as Others Saw It

A Survey and Evaluation of Christian, Jewish and Zoroastrian Writings on Early Islam
ISBN: 978-1-4632-3926-8
This seminal work continues to shape the thought of specialists studying the Late Antique crossroads at which Christian, Jewish, Zoroastrian, and Islamic histories met, by offering the field a new approach to the vexing question of how to write the early history of Islam. The new edition of the study produces the original text with the addition of a substantial forward in which Hoyland discusses how the field has developed over the two decades that proceeded the book’s first publication. Hoyland also shares some personal reflections on how his thinking has since developed and the potential impact of this on the findings of the original study. The book also includes new appendices that detail the later publications of the author.

Half of my Heart

The Narratives of Zaynab, Daughter of ʿAlî
ISBN: 978-1-4632-3937-4
As Abû ʿAbd Allâh al-Ḥusayn, son of ʿAlî and Fâṭima and grandson of Muḥammad, moved inexorably towards death on the field of Karbalâʾ, his sister Zaynab was drawn ever closer to the centre of the family of Muḥammad, the ‘people of the house’ (ahl al-bayt). There she would remain for a few historic days, challenging the wickedness of the Islamic leadership, defending the actions of her brother, initiating the commemorative rituals, protecting and nurturing the new Imâm, al-Ḥusayn’s son ʿAlî b. al-Ḥusayn b. ʿAlî b. Abî Ṭâlib, until he could take his rightful place. This is her story.
