    Just started reading this, his Arabic is really clear (at least for a novice like me) and he gives a good break down of the current state of the field. Nice  Afro

    countjulian - have you come across anything else worthwhile in Arabic? I'm thinking mainly of academic articles that address current scholarship.

    I have soon a a few things on his blog and the IQSA, I will post them when I have the time. I also want to translate this essay into English, it's such a good overview of the field. Emran Albadawi is the man  Cool

    It's a good overview of the field, thank you for linking it. I don't like that he ended the article with an ayyah tho.

    Here's an Arabic translation of Guillaume Dye's "La nuit du Destin et la nuit de la Nativité"

    Any opinions on this from Arabic speakers would be welcome.

    what  does that   Petra was the original location of Mecca. ....  mean??

    Petra became Mecca?
    Mecca was a county inside the city Petra?.. 
    does Gibson not know the the well know fact " Petra  has very ancient history  as  a capital of Nabataean  kingdom??

    What is Petra has to do with Mecca/Medina/Muhammad/Islam??

    How Accurately Could Early (622-900 C.E.) Muslims Determine the Direction of Prayers (Qibla)?.pdf

    Debate has arisen over the ability of Muslim architects in the first two centuries of Islam to determine true qiblas accurately. Some believe that they had such a capability, while others think not. The argument could be more complex—perhaps some architects could, while others could not; perhaps their accuracy changed over time or over greater distances from qibla targets. Here, we investigated how the accurate qiblas of 60 mosques or related structures were, using data from Daniel Gibson’s books and websites. Contrasts were drawn between theories that the qiblas of early mosques were—or were not—generally accurate. If one were to assume that Mecca was the only qibla, qiblas would not appear to have been accurate. However, if one were to assume that qiblas changed, it would be found that qiblas were accurate to plus or minus two degrees in over half of the cases and accurate within plus or minus five degrees in over 80% of cases. Accuracy was not related to distance but did appear to improve over historical time, while distance from the target cities and historical time were positively associated. The average qibla accuracy had a near zero error, with random variations on either side of that zero error. The overall distribution was not normal—kurtotic—because a greater accuracy was found than would have been expected with a normal distribution; however, the pattern deviated more from a uniform distribution than it did from a normal distribution. To try to synthesize the competing theories, we analyzed data for only 14 of the 60 mosques, those presumed to face towards Mecca, and we found fairly high degrees of qibla accuracy with nearly 43% of qiblas within two degrees of accuracy and nearly 80% within five degrees of accuracy. Comparing the accuracy of Meccan qiblas with other qiblas of the same century, we found no significant differences in azimuth errors. While some architects were more accurate than others, early Muslim architects seemed, in general, quite capable of placing qiblas with reasonable accuracy, even though their accuracy may have improved slightly over the first two centuries of Islam.


    that is abstract .. not sure what is inside in it.. but I am glad to read this at the end
