Episode 017 - Abyssinia

A portion of Muhammed's followers flee to Abyssinia where they hope to practice their religion freely, Quraysh try to retrieve them.


  1. I have been following your podcast for a few months but just now started listening to episode 16 & 17 tonight. Great stuff! I regret not listening sooner. For those of us not familiar with the terms and names, can you provide a glossary so we can look them up? I like being able to use Wikipedia while I listen.


    1. There is already a glossary up with a few terms already on it:
      Let me know if there is anything that you want me to add.

      There is also this resource available, a character page. It has brief profiles of key figures mentioned in the podcast:

  2. Thanks for this Podcast. Very informative. I'm really looking forward to you covering the Caliphates. For once I'll hear the non-western side of the story. All I know about early Islam is from the eyes of the Byzantienes, the Franks and later the crusaders. So bascially the people that Arabs didn't get along with too well.
    I think what I like most so far is the description of how the arab society works. It is really foreign and fascinating to me. Always thought the japanese took honor seriously. They got nothing on the old arabs. I hope I'll get a hang of the names at some point. Took me only like 80 Episodes for the History of China. So far, most of them sound like angry yelling. Though I've heard people say this about german names too, so... fair enough. Keep up the good work!

  3. As far as I can see, this is the last episode and was published nearly four months ago. Certainly, interruptions occur in life but perhaps you can post an update to let us know when this informative series will resume.


  4. Really enjoy this podcast and hope it will resume soon

  7. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEM
