Abstract

This study aims to shed light on one aspect of the contributions of an early Muslim historian of religion, Abū al-Ḥasan al-Masʻūdī. It focuses on al-Masʻūdī’s work on pre-Islamic Arab religions and beliefs. The study is based on textual analysis of al-Masʻūdī’s treatment of the issue in his Murūj (The Meadows), and comparisons are made with al-Masʻūdī’s treatments of the non-Arab religions. Kajian ini bertujuan untuk memberikan penerangan tentang satu aspek dalam sumbangan seorang sejarawan Islam awal iaitu Abū al-Ḥasan alMasʻūdī, dengan memfokuskan karya-karya beliau terhadap agama masyarakat Arab pra-Islam. Kajian ini berasaskan analisis teks tentang pengendalian al-Masʻūdī, terhadap isu tersebut dalam karyanya Murūj. Seterusnya ia dibandingkan dengan pengendalian beliau terhadap agama masyarakat bukan Arab.
