Correct title: Zubdat-il-Ihtisar fi Tarikh al-Muluk-il-Misr al-Mahrusa

Dear Sister, Salamun alaikum!

Thank you for remembering us from Indonesia :-)

Allow me to make minor corrections in the long name of a book known only to very few scholarly circles in Turkey and the Middle East.

Here is the correct name of the book: Zubdat-il-Ihtisar fi Tarikh al-Muluk-il-Misr al-Mahrusa. (Probably written in the 18th century).

To my knowledge, the voluminous Arabic book has never been translated. I had speed-read it in King Faisal Shaheed's library about 40 years ago. Of course, it is impossible to retain much of a huge foreign language book that was speed-read so long ago.

I wrote ISLAM: THE TRUE HISTORY AND FALSE BELIEFS based on my independent research in 2005.

"Truth is one, falsehoods can be hundreds." So, any similarities between the two books provide further credence to their authenticity.

Thanks and God bless you!
