Aziz al-Azmeh, The Emergence of Islam in Late Antiquity: Allāh and His People


Aziz al-Azmeh aims his T h e Emergence of Islam in Late Antiquity at two of the most important questions concerning Middle Eastern history: how did the Muslim faith arise, and what was the role of the Arab people in the venture of Islam? Al-Azmeh proposes to lead the flock of Middle East historians into the pastures of Hellenism, Late Antiquity and anthropology of religion, which he intones have been littlenibbled hitherto, and thereby suggests a “fresh look at Muslim emergence”
