 Kitāb al-radd ʿalā ahl al-adyān
(104 words)

Refutation of the followers of the religions

Abū l-Hudhayl Muḥammad ibn al-Hudhayl ibn ʿUbayd Allāh ibn Makḥūl al-ʿAbdī l-ʿAllāf

Date: Early 9th century

Original Language: Arabic


It is mentioned by Ibn al-Nadīm, Fihrist, p. 204. It was presumably a general refutation of non-Muslim religions, including Christianity.


Given Abū l-Hudhayl’s stature, it may have contained original arguments, as well as stock points from contemporary polemic.
