The First Islamic Conquest of Aelia (Islamic Jerusalem) A Critical Analytical Study of the Early Islamic Historical Narratives and SourcesThe First Islamic Conquest of Aelia (Islamic Jerusalem) A Critical Analytical Study of the Early Islamic Historical Narratives and Sources

By Othman Ismael Al-Tel

This book is an attempt to find concrete explanations for the inaccuracies and contradictions in the early Islamic narratives and sources with regard to the first conquest of Aelia (Islamic Jerusalem). It examines the historical evidence of the first Islamic conquest of Aelia by critically analysing the early historical narratives and sources as well as examining the historical background of some important narrators who related these accounts.



It critically examines the topography and geographical boundaries of the Aelia region in order to define its true historical boundaries.



The study also examines the early Muslimís organisation and administration of Aelia. The book is certainly an invaluable resource for those interested in the study of Islamic Jerusalem and the history of the region.



Othman Al-Tel was awarded the 2002 Islamic Jerusalem prize for Young Scholars as a result of his outstanding contribution to the development of Islamic Jerusalem Studies by producing this study.
