Madinan Society at the Time of The Prophet Volumes 1 & 2 by Akram Diya' al-'Umari
This is a work that brings out the most important aspects of life in the early Muslim community. Its author, the renowned scholar of Sirah and Sunnah Studies Professor Akram Diya' al-'Umari, has expended a great deal of effort to make this book more than just a mere recitation of the historical record. The result is a breakthrough in historiographical methodology, as Dr. al-'Umari has effectively succeeded in combining the strict methodological guidelines used by traditional Muslim scholars of the Sunnah and 'usul al hadith with modern methods of historical criticism. This edition has both volumes together in one book.
