About the book

Description: ‘Abd al-Malik, who came to prominence during the second civil war of early Islam, ruled the Islamic empire from 692 until 705. Not only did he successfully suppress rebellion within the Muslim world and expand its frontiers, but in many respects he founded the empire itself. By about 700, the forms of a new realm which stretched from North Africa in the west to Iran in the east had taken clear shape with ‘Abd al-Malik at its head. This book covers the beginnings and rise to power of this immensely influential caliph, as well as his religious policies and innovations, his fiscal, administrative and military reforms, and his legacy, including the Dome of the Rock, the oldest surviving monumental building erected by Muslims. Accessible yet authoritative, it features a glossary, chronology and guide to further reading, and will prove an indispensable resource for readers of all backgrounds. Contents: Introduction: Jerusalem in 692 • When and Why the Dome? • ‘Abd al-Malik and the Marwanids • The Marwanid Background • The end of the Sufyanids and Beginning of the Marwanids • The Caliphate of IBN al-Zubayr • The Case for ibn al-Zubayr • The Rebellion of ‘Abd al-Malik • The images of ‘Abd al-Malik • ‘Abd al-Malik’s Empire • Sufyanid arrangements • Innovations • ‘Abd al-Malik as Imam • The Problem of Evidence • The Caliph • ‘Abd al-Malik and the Islamic State • Sermons and Letters • Public Islam and the marwanid State • Conclusion • Conclusion: The Legacy of ‘Abd al-Malik
