TL;DR: In this paper, a study on the Arabic historical narratives of the ʿAbbāsid revolution and its aftermath that occurred in 747-755 CE is presented, where the main focus is a medieval work on these events, called the Kitāb al-Dawla, composed by an Arabic Muslim collector and composer of historical narratives, Abū l-Ḥasan ǫ b. Muḥammad al-Madāʾinī (d. c.228/842-843).
Abstract: This is a study on the Arabic historical narratives of the ʿAbbāsid revolution and its aftermath that occurred in 747–755 CE. Its main focus is a medieval work on these events, called the Kitāb al-Dawla, composed by an Arabic Muslim collector and composer of historical narratives, Abū l-Ḥasan ʿAlī b. Muḥammad al-Madāʾinī (d. c.228/842–843). The work is not extant, but its skeleton can be reconstructed on the basis of later quotations of it. Al-Madāʾinī’s Kitāb al-Dawla is an important source for the events of the the ʿAbbāsid revolution: since al-Madāʾinī was not directly sponsored by the ʿAbbāsid dynasty, he was not constrained to be a spokesperson for the ruling house’s propaganda needs.

  • ...6 Kalīla wa-Dimna is a very popular book which was originally based on the Sanskrit Panchatantra but transmitted through Middle Persian to Arabic by Ibn al-Muqaffaʿ and later translated back into classical Persian (Brockelmann, 1997: 503–4). 7 In the edition, the name is erroneously printed سوش instead of نیبوش. 8 In addition to Ibn al-Muqaffaʿ, Abān al-Raqqāšī is said to have translated (naqala) or transmitted the Kalīla wa-Dimna. In Arabic, the verb naqala can mean both ‘to translate’ and ‘to transmit’. 9 Zakeri discusses other translators too (2004: 1200–2), namely Zādā Farrūkh (2004: 1200); Ṣāliḥ b. ʿAbd al-Raḥmān (alNadīm, 1872: 242); Sālim Abū al-ʿAlāʾ (al-Nadīm, 1872: 353); Saʿīd b. Khurāsānkhurrah; and ʿAbd al-Ḥamīd b. Yaḥyā. Some later translators after the Umayyad era include the Iranian astrologers Nawbakht (d. ca. 777), Yazdānkhwāst (d. 815) and Abū Sahl b. Nawbakht (d. ca. 815) (Zakeri, 2004: 1203). In another article, Zakeri (1994) discusses in detail a Middle Persian translator, ʿAlī b....
