Dear Dhimmi,

Ibn Ishaq, Ibn Hisham's, Waqidi's al-Magahzi are no doubt books of Islamic history.

First consider their birth and death dates, and try to clear your heart.

Waqidi (130-207AH)

Ishaq (85-153AH)

Hisham (?-218AH) was student of Ishaq.

To really follow these authors their status in piety, righteousness and ability to remember things also. You will agree, these are the matters of heart & soul that requires delicate scrutiny and inspection.

You will see that, being the follower of Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him), I (Syed Rafey Husain) should also be a caravan raider and/or a warlord. But I am not.

I follow Quran and teachings of Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him) from 6 books of Hadith, so I am neither a caravan raider and/or a warlord.

Dhimmi, it will be justice from your side if you place books in order they are followed. Quran is above all, then 6 books of Hadith and then remaning books of Hadith, and then history books.

And believe me Dhimmi, I only follow Quran and books of Hadith.

How come you did not know that?

From Quran.

My love to you.
