Aḥmad b. Yaḥyā al-Balādhūrī (d. c. 892 CE) was one of the greatest Arab historians of the ninth century CE. The Kitāb Futūḥ al-buldān by Aḥmad b. Yaḥyā al-Balādhurī (d. c. 892 CE) was edited by M.J. de Goeje and originally titled Liber expugnationis regionum (Leiden, 1866). The work offers an account of the early conquests of the Islamic polity. It has the form of a geographical survey of the Caliphate’s territories, describing how each location came under Muslim rule.
