Default Thanks but need a little more

Dear;

As you are well-aware that Islamic history has a span of about 14 complete centuries, so i assume that one book wouldn't be enough for the detailed account of this subject. Please share all of your personal books names that you have for this.
thanks:

I am preparing notes from the following books:

1. Spirit of Islam by Syed Ameer Ali.
2. A Short History of Saracens by Syed Ameer Ali.
3. History of the Arabs by Philip K. Hitti,

In my opinion, these books are sufficient to help you cover all the topics.

Besides, you can consult the following books in case you dont find either of the above books in any library or market. These are:

A Short History of the Arab Peoples by John Bagot Glubb, The Arabs in History by Bernard Lewis, The Arab Civilization by Joseph Hell.

Fatima, are you based in Lahore? I will stand grateful if you can share notes. I am already done reading Hitti's History of the Arabs in its entirety and will be done with S A Ali's A short history of the Saracens shortly.

You should read a separate book for Islamic History & Culture part-II paper. Please treat it as a full subject since it carries 100 marks. There are several books available in the market one that I can recall is titled "Islam in Spain".

Assalam O Alikum
dear friends, as i am a new one on it and its my 1st post on this forum i have decided to appear for css 2012 lot of help is required as i m not preparing through any akadmy just a good friends like you are helping me I have seen the plans posted by Mr. redmax or sheikh sab those are really helpful and the effort is much appreciative. I would like to have suggestions of you guys my optional sbj are
1-Journalism (in B.A I prepared so selected)
2-Arabic
3-Islamic history and culture
4-Muslim law and jurisprudence
last three sbj somehow i read but unfortunately in urdu and of course arabic in arabic including (mutanabbi, dewan e hamasa, and many basic books of grammar and language), but its long time ago although revision will help.
2ndly my weakness to be very very frank i am weak in English either its grammar or vocab. I have no prb preparing last 3 optionals and islamiyat comp but the prb is eng. so if you guys suggest me the best short way to strengthen the grammar as well as vocab i would b thankful to you.

Sorry for the late reply. Since I am a new member, I keep scouring for various things in this forum. I had kinda forgotten that I posted in this particular thread, Sorry once again.

I live in Rawalpindi, far away from Lahore.

I am still in the process of making my notes and hopefully I'll have my notes completed within a month inshaAllah (thats because my uni classes are going to commence next week as well). Meanwhile, if there is anything you dont find in those books, do let me know. I'll, for sure, try to help you out. I too might ask you for any kind of help.

Regards.
