The Arab-Islamic Settlements in Ibn Jubeirs Journey (578 A.H. - 581 A.H.)

Auther : Khlaif M. Gharaybeh

Ibn Jubeir, the Arab Muslim traveler, set out on his pilgrimage to Makka from Granada in Andalusia on the 19…th Shawal, 578 A.H., crossing the Mediterranean, to Arab Islamic lands in Africa and Asia for two years and three months, passing numerous Arab Islamic settlements of different sizes, functions, and political, social and ethical conditions.

This study traces Ibn Jubeirs journey to identify the number of those settlements, classify them, and draw maps of the course of the journey in Africa and Asia. The researcher uses the Vertical Treatment approach to trace the time and place of the course of the journey. The study came up with several findings, the most important of which are: - Classifying Arab Islamic settlements into four categories: caravan stations, villages, towns and cities. - With prominent components like the wall, congregational mosque and buildings reflecting the local environment, the Arab Islamic city had a unique character in its planning and factors concerning its evolution.
