9780956708168: The Call of Shaykh Muḥammad bin 'Abdal-Wahhab and the Three Saudi States: The Emergence of Modern Saudi Arabia

The importance of the region that is recognised today as Saudi Arabia (with its neighbours) can hardly be underestimated, let alone overlooked by the rest of the world, not merely because of its geographical location and religious significance to a large segment of the world’s population due to the location of Islam’s two holiest shrines in Makkah and al-Madinah, and for economic and political reasons too, for it has the world’s largest known reserves of energy. This book attempts to trace and explain the rise, fall – then rise and fall again – and rise of the Saudi polity in the Arabian Peninsula, and explores the role played throughout these events by Shaykh Muhammad bin Abdal-Wahhab and his ‘Call’ for religious and social reform. Not since the writings of Philby five decades ago has a book exploring the history of such a politically important and sensitive region, and in such a comprehensive and academic manner, appeared on the scene. Supported by maps and illustrations, and written by an insider who has resided in the Kingdom for over four decades, the book is a fascinating eye-opener and historical reference, bringing almost all the known original indigenous Arabic and other source material into full purview.

About the Author:

Sultan Ghalib al-Qu'aiti was educated at Millfield School and Magdalen College Oxford, Magdalene College Cambridge and SOAS. He holds Honours Degrees in Oriental Studies and Arabian Studies. The last Sultan of Hadramaut (the Qu'aiti State) he has always pursued his love of history, literature and current events while writing, aiding post-graduate scholars and translating. His last major work 'The Holy Cities, the PIlgrimage and the World of Islam - a History from the Earliest Traditions till 1925' was published in 2006 and described as a 'unique, ground-breaking book'

Review:

This is an effort which has genuinely attempted to bridge gaps in knowledge about the region and to promote international understanding. The book is a valuable scholarly addition to the paucity of material on the subject and has come at a time when the need for such books of reliable scholarly validity seems to be rising by the day. HRH PRINCE MUHAMMAD AL FAISAL AL SAUD.
