    1. The Muqaddimah, an introduction to a universal history up to the author s own day the 14th century AD is repetitive, clumsy in places, has some curious choices of material, is maddeningly inexplicit occasionally, and entirely incredible It is a true landmark in the study of history.I first heard about this book as a student It was a lead in to a lecture hall joke, the work had apparently been reconstructed from students lecture notes after Ibn Khaldun s death pause for punchline after the lectur [...]






    2. I read this book because my History of Islam professor recommended it in a class last fall 8 months later I looked through my notes and saw that I wrote down that I wanted to read it, and so I did.This book surprised me in that I actually enjoyed reading it I figured it would have good information but be tedious and boring Not the case, Ibn Khaldun and perhaps with the help of the translator has a curious nature and a light humor in his work He really steps back and looks at the world around him [...]




    3. The intellectual sciences are natural to man, in as much as he is a thinking being Truly Ibn Khaldun is a thinking being, creating this astonishing summary of the wisdom and knowledge of his time He surpassed previous attempts to explain history, claiming with justification, We, on the other hand, were inspired by God He led us to a science whose truth we ruthlessly set forth His ruthless enumeration of the many sources of historical distortion reminds me of E H Carr s essay What Is History Carr [...]

    5. Muqaddimah Ibnu Khaldun menjadi popular sebagai sebuah judul buku yang terasing daripada buku yang asal apabila zaman berganti zaman sedangkan buku ini sebenarnya hanya merupakan jilid pertama daripada tiga jilid buku asal iaitu al Ibar.Ibnu Khaldun 732 H 808 H siap menulis jilid pertama buku al Ibar ini ketika beliau berusia 47 tahun dalam masa lima bulan Ini disebut pada bait terakhir buku ini iaitu penulis tamat menulisnya pada 779 H dan seperti kebanyakan cendekiawan dunia yang lain, beliau [...]


    6. My purpose in reading this book was very specific, this book is pretty large and looks in a huge number of subjects I was only interested in the chapters on the supernatural The Muqaddamah provided an excellent look into the workings of the occult, eye popping really Ibn Khuldun gives eye witness accounts of many forms of sorcery and magic being practiced in his times as well as a little explanation of the science behind these fell arts Well worth the read Alot of enlightening material.





    7. Saya memang bukan orang yang layak untuk mengulas hasil tulisan ilmuan besar ini Pembacaan saya mungkin boleh diibaratkan sebagai sebuah perjalanan yang panjang, lantaran terlalu sarat ilmu yang ada di dalamnya Penulisan buku ini hanya memakan masa selama 5 bulan dan siap ditulis pada November 1377 Masihi.Saya sentiasa percaya seseorang yang benar benar arif akan bidang ilmunya pasti mampu menjelaskan di dalam bahasa termudah, kepada sesiapa sahaja Tidak perlu perkataan yang bombastik sehingga m [...]
