Respected forum members! Please give me guidance regarding this question. In Mazhr ul Haq's book one can easily find the conquests of these two empires, but there is no such chapter or written account of the socio-political conditions that prevailed in Byzantium and Sassanian empires on the eve of advent of Islam. Or if there is any internet source which addresses this question then please paste the link. Thanks in advance
