Bibliography

Clarification: The dates which are mentioned in this bibliography are based on the Islamic Calendar which started by the departure of the Prophet Muhammad from Mecca to Medina. That departure is called "Hijrah" of the Prophet which took place in the year 622 A.D.

If the reader wants to convert the dating from Islamic to the Western Calendar he should take into account the difference of the 622 years before the Hijrah. Furthermore the lunar year on which the Islamic Calendar is based is only 354 days. Thus it is 11 days less than a solar year.

Each one hundred solar years would be 103 lunar years. A thousand solar years is 1030 lunar years.
