Juma Al Majid Center presents a lecture on building the conduct of the media based on outsiders of their texts, documents and manuscripts

Juma Al Majid Center for Culture and Heritage in Dubai organized a virtual lecture entitled “Building the Lives of the Flags Depending on Outside Their Texts, Documents and Manuscripts: Ibn Abdul Hadi as a Model”, presented by Prof. Dr. Konrad Hirschler, Professor of Middle Eastern History at the University of Hamburg, Germany.
The lecture dealt with several axes, the most important of which are: the materialistic codicology approach, the importance of Kharijites texts for writing history, and the contributions of the scholar Yusuf bin Hassan Ibn Abd al-Hadi, who died in 909 AH, known as Ibn al-Mabrard, in preserving the Damascene manuscript heritage in the Mamluk era. He was the owner of a large project aimed at: To perpetuate an era in the past in which his predecessors were pioneers in the science of hadith narration, by collecting their books and what was dispersed from their libraries, and then linking himself to them through the chain of narrators of the narrators of those texts.
