Marriage in the Tribe of Muhammad: A Statistical Study of Early Arabic Genealogical Literature

Majied Robinson

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This study examines the marital data preserved within the Arabic genealogical works of the early ninth century CE in order to better understand the tribal relationships of the pre-Islamic Quraysh (the Arabic tribe to which Muhammad belonged). The research establishes the accuracy of the Nasab Quraysh (Genealogy of the Quraysh) and informs a more nuanced analysis of the politics of the Central Hijaz into which Islam was born.
