In Arabic, with English Interpretation

The plague is the most significant epidemic in history. It repeatedly and almost regularly afflicted the ancient world, claiming hundreds of thousands of lives in the process. Independent writings on the plague increased since the Big Plague or the Sweeping Plague (1348 CE/749 AH). Due to the large number of Arabic works on this genre, what could be named "Literature of Plagues" emerged reflecting the interaction of the learned elite (particularly jurists and hadith scholars) with an epidemic that physicians were unable to diagnose accurately and to treat as well. Tensions arose between the experimental medical and religious references.
