Fatimids Mosques

Fatimids Mosques


Published: September 20, 2022

This book discusses mosques built during the Fatimid era in Mahdia,
Sirte, Ajdabiya, and Cairo, some of which remained intact and some
of which were altered, and it is based on a treatise originally titled
(Fatimid Mosques, Their History and Architecture). Given the
significance of the mihrab in mosque architecture, I included an
article titled “The Rightness in the Relationship Between the Mosque
and the Mihrab” that opened the book’s pages which were the
introduction pages of the book.

Early Abbasid Era in the Emirate of Sharjah


Published: August 10, 2022

In the introduction to his book, the author discussed the concept of studying archaeological finds and the importance of placing them within the geographical, historical, and cultural contexts of the region in which they were discovered, as well as the role of heritage sources in the process of analyzing and studying the discovered antiquities. He devoted an important part of his research to discussing the issue of Arab, Islamic, and foreign coins that were in circulation at the time, in terms of the region’s political, practical, social, and economic importance, after being presented in detail to the review and discussion of various pottery and stone finds.

The author focused on the Abbasid group of dirhams, which were discovered inside a small Abbasid-style glazed jar. They were nine silver dirhams and one copper fil. It also contained five small square copper pieces of varying weights. These silver coins date back to the first Abbasid era, which dates back to 123-218 AH (750-833 AD).
