New Additions…

Peace, one and all…

As promised, I’m posting some new bibliographical references for the study of early Islamic history.  It’s all fairly random at present.  Insha Allah, once I get some free time during the Xmas break, I’ll sort this blog out.  For now, enjoy…

If you have any questions, I’m more than happy to answer them, insha Allah.
