Muqaddimah Ibn Khaldun – مقدمة ابن خلدون
Author: Imam Ibn Khaldun
Binding: Hard Cover
Very nice edition, with part of the Harakat, and annotations on the Hadiths or to explain some words used by the author.
Ibn Khaldun’s Muqadimmah is among the greatest literary works in human history. Its famous author, historian and philosopher (although it would be reductive to limit him to that), wrote this work as an introduction to his famous book of history, Kitab al-‘Ibar (known as Tarikh ibn Khaldun).
The book is often considered the first work on sociology, philosophy of history, demography and many other related fields. It also deals with Islamic theology, natural sciences, biology and chemistry.
According to the orientalist Georges Marçais, the Prolegomena (the translation given to the title of the Muqaddimah) is “one of the most substantial and interesting works that the human mind has produced”.
