Respected Dr. Sahab
Scholars regard Ibn-e-Khaladun as the pioneer of Histriography in the world. The concept of ASABIYAH (Group feeling) is central to his thought. He laso believed that concepts in a particular environment are identified with their centyral message.He saw history asd a cycle of growth and decay that repeats itself. He also pointed out that progress was a movement from a nomadic to a civilized society. It is also debated that Asabiyah concept is not in line with pure Islamic teachings. Khadun was not a scholar of the Quran but based his analysis of human nature and society on natural laws and political and socio-economic factors.He is regarded as the first thinker who highlighted the Philosophy of history.
