Deconstructing Kitab Sulaym bin Qays


A critical analysis of Kitab Sulaym b. Qays Al-Hilali, which allegedly is the earliest extant Shi’ite historical source today. The Book of Sulaym contains the earliest and most detailed account of the alleged attack on Fatimah’s house, and it also contains a Shi’ite rendition of various events that followed the death of the Prophet. Thus, it has been the center of an extended polemical debate for several decades.
