Thanks Yeez for your understanding!
well I guess I failed mundi and mundi failed me..,
That is life ...........failure are important part of every life form and they are also stepping stones for success for every life form ., Human are no exceptions to that rule
but mundi said to Altara
Altara, give me the link to the pages I must read. Please, please, please, help me.
That is very harsh dear Altara... So let me scribble something for mundi... to start with let me give some pdf file references with a little note what they wrote in those files.. rest you must read the following files ..lol... First one must note this about Muhammad b. Jarir al-Tabari in these volumes ., his life time spans between the years ; 839–923 AD (224–310 AH) he was Iranian scholar
, and historian and came from Amol, Tabaristan ., the present Mazandaran Province of Iran
In those 40 volumes that are translated in to English they come from THE HISTORY OF PROPHETS AND KINGS (Ta'rikh al-rusul wa'lmuluk) by Abu Ja`far Muhammad b. Jarir al-Tabari (839-923
This History of al-Tabari, is by common consent the most important universal history produced in the world of Islam. It has been translated here in its entirety for the first time for the benefit of non-Arabists, with historical and philological notes for those interested in the particulars of the text.
Tabari's monumental work explores the history of the ancient nations, with special emphasis on biblical peoples and prophets, the legendary and factual history of ancient Iran, and, in great detail, the rise of Islam, the life of the Prophet Muhammad, and the history of the Islamic world down to the year 915.
1.) The History of al-Tabari_ volume 21., The Victory of the Marwdnids A.D. 685-693/A.H. 66-73
Now in that 21st volume ., it deals with most important part of early Islamic history .. It is all about Shia -Sunni split/conflicts/civil war/s with in Islamic world of that time
So to know more on that war story between Zubayr and Abd al Malik.".
please go through that contents of that volume 21 on page10 and then start reading ..
DO NOT BELIEVE IN WHAT I SAY OR WHAT ALTARA SAYS OR WHAT GIBSON SAID OR SAYS or anyone says anywhere on the Internet..
So here are some more pdf files that deal with that story., and please realize all these modern publications have origins in Tabari or other resources of that time and with a bit of common sense which we all have..
