IMAM AL-WAQIDI, the Historian

The author of the history book 'futooh ush shaam', al-Imam Abu ‘Abdillah Muhammad bin ‘Umar al-Waqidi al-Madani. He was born at the beginning of 130 Hijri in al-Madinah al-Munawwarah. His surname is derived from his grandfather’s name, Waqid, and thus he became famous as al-Imam al-Waqidi.

He began his studies in Madinah. Amongst his prominent teachers were Ibn Abi Thahab Ma‘mar bin Rashid, al-Imam Malik bin Anas and al-Imam Sufyan ath-Thawri. Initially he earned a living as a wheat trader, but when a calamity struck he migrated to Iraq in 180 Hijri during the reign of Mamun ar-Rashid. There Yahya al-Barmaki welcomed him due to his great learning and he was included as one of Mamun’s elite. He was soon appointed as judge and held this post until his death on 11 Thul Hijjah 207 Hijri. He is buried in the graveyard of Khayzaran.

The Imam was both a Muhaddith and a Historian but since he concentrated on History, his Hadith narrations need to be scrutinised before acceptance whereas he is doubtlessly acknowledged as a master of History. Besides Futuhusham, al-Imam al-Waqidi also wrote:

• Al-Maghazi an-Nabawi (Campaigns of the Prophet)
• Fath Ifriqiyah (Conquest of North Africa)
• Fath al-‘Ajam (Conquest of Iran)
• Fath Misr wal-Iskandriyah (Conquest of Egypt and Alexandria)
• Akhbar Makkah (Narrations of Makkah)
• At-Tabaqat (The Generations)
• Futuh al-‘Iraq (Conquest of Iraq)
• Sirah Abi Bakr wal-Wafat (Life and death of Abu Bakr RA)
• Kitab as-Sardah (Birth of the Prophet)
• Tarikh al-Fuqaha (History of the Jurists)
• Kitab al-Jamal (Battle of the Camel)
• Kitab as-Siffin (Battle of Siffin)
• Maqtal al-Husayn (Massacre of Al-Husayn)
• Tafsir al-Quran etc.

In a beauty contest among birds, the finalists believe it or not were a chicken, an ostrich and a flamingo. And soon after the show, the judges were unanimous in reaching the final choice. And guess who won? The chicken, of course! The judges admitted that both the ostrich, and flamingo legs were beautiful, but the chicken had prettier laid eggs.
