History of the Saracens Comprising the Lives of Mohammed and His Successors

Published August 2003 by Kessinger Publishing .
Written in English.

First Sentence

THE Arabians, who are also by the Greek, and in imitation of them, by Latin writers, called Saracens, are divided by their historians into three classes: 1. The primitive Arabians, who inhabited Arabia immediately after the flood: of whom nothing now remains but the names of their tribes, as Adites, Thamudites, &c. and some traditional stories of their punishment for not hearkening to the prophets sent to reclaim them; which stories, however fabulous, have not only served to furnish the Arabian poets with subjects and allusions, but are mentioned in a serious manner by Mohammed, in the Koran, in order to deter his followers from disbelieving his mission and rejecting his doctrine.
