Madina to Jerusalem: Encounters with the Byzantine Empire traces one of the most energetic and dynamic episodes in the history of Islam, that follows immediately after the passing away of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). It charts the course of Muslim history from 8-15 AH/629-637 CE when the great expansion into al-Sham (Syria, Palestine, Jordan and Lebanon) took place.
This book attempts not only to recount the military battles that led to the Muslims liberating Jerusalem from the Byzantines but also to understand the reasons why the Byzantine confederates of al-Sham abandoned their former masters for Islam.
Ismail Patel attempts to address the Islamic expansion from a wider perspective with both the Muslim and non-Muslim readers in mind. It will hopefully assist the non-Muslims to shake off the prejudices created by the Orientalists and help Muslims to have a better understanding of how the first generation of Muslims challenged the superpower of the time.

No other issue has engaged the energies and resources of the international community in the 20th century more than the Palestine Question. Since 1948 it has been the cause of regional wars and continues until today to be a dangerous threat to international peace and security.
Despite its solid roots in the depths of history, many people know very little and understand much less about the Palestine Question. While a few are aware that Zionist Israel was founded on the basis of ‘historical’ claims, most remain, after more than 100 years, ignorant of the origins and nature of these claims. Because of its centrality to regional peace and global security, it is the duty of every student of history and peace seeking individuals to know and understand this issue.
A History of Palestinian Resistance…
