English rendering by Maulana Sulayman al-Kindi of South Africa. Good translation of a great historic classic.
The author, Al-Imam al-Waqidi, the great historian, was born at the beginning of 130 Hijri in al Madinah, where he began his studies. He migrated to Iraq in 180 Hijri during the reign of Mamun ar-Rashid. There Yahya al Barmaki welcomed him due to his great learning and he was included as one of Mamun's elite. He was soon appointed as judge and held this post until his death in 207 Hijri.
