 Kitāb yaḥtawī ʿalā ʿashara kutub fī l-radd ʿalā ahl al-milal
(130 words)

A book comprising ten books on the refutation of the people of the religions

Abū ʿAmr Ḍirār ibn ʿAmr al-Ghaṭafānī l-Kūfī

Date: mid to late 8th c.

Original Language: Arabic


The work is lost, and is known only from Ibn al-Nadīm, Fihrist, p. 215, where his reference is probably a description of the work rather than the exact title. It would have been one of the earliest works against other religions known to Muslims at the time, presumably including Christianity.
