  1. Assalamu alikum ya Akhy,
    I just read your slide show covering the first Civil war. Thank you for putting in the appreciated efforts, however, I would like to know why did you refer to Madelung’s writings although he is a very well known orientalist?
    Thank you

  2. wa alaikum salam Su,

    Welcome! Allah bless you. I referred to Madelung’s writings because I think it is important to refer to as many sources as possible, orientalist and otherwise.
