It seeks to give a vivid picture of the administrative set-up of the governments, civil and military, albeit brief and short. While dealing with the institutions of administration their historical growth and development have been kept in view throughout the discussion and their assessment has been made in the Resume.

Preface

Having written the political history of the Muslims (from Prophet Muhammad to the ‘Abbasids) in two volumes and the Political history of Muslim Spain (711-1492), it was deemed necessary to compile a work on administration under the Arabs giving a continuous history of their administration at Madinah, Damascus, Baghdad, Cordova and Cario at different periods. It seeks to give a vivid picture of the administrative set up of the governments civil and military, albeit brief short. While dealing with the institutions of administration their historical growth and development have been kept in view throughout the discussion and their assessment has been made in the Resume.

Of the Arabic sources in original or translation mainly the works of Baladhuri, Tabari, Masudi, Abu Yusuf, Qudamah, Ibn al-Khatib, Ibn Bassam, Maqqari, Maqrizi, Ibn Tiqtaqah, al- Qalqashandi, Jahshiyari, Suyuti, al-Nadim, Ibn Khaldun and others have been consulted and depended upon. Critical notices of some of them have been appended here in the Introduction serving as an index to the nature of materials utilised in giving shape to this short work on ‘Arab administration much needed by regular students and interested laymen. The author will feel his labour amply rewarded if their purpose is served.

Among the modern works, the books of Mez, Von Kremar, Levy, Hitti, Levi- Provencal, Vatikiotis, Gaston Wiet, Muin al-din Nadvi, scott, Monigomery Watt, Zahid ‘Ali, Jurji Zaydan, Khuda Baksbsh, Husaini and of the present author himself have been of great help in preparing the text of this work. The authors acknowledge the Medieval as well as modern writers mentioned above as his authorities and, in case of a successful presentation of the subject. He feels that credit goes mainly to those pioneers in the field alone on the fruits of whose researches the present writer has largely depended. The present work is intended to be a companion volume of ‘ the Political History of the Muslims from Prophet Muhammad to the ‘ Abbasids’ and also of the author’s other works on Muslim Spain.

The author is conscious of his shortcomings in the plan of this book and also its execution and others to which his attention may be drawn by learned critics on reviewing this work. Because of non-availability and short supply of diacritical signs ‘irab (ancient marks) could not be put properly in some cases giving in complete accent.

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
