The short article focuses on the use of primary sources, mainly the text of "Al Waqidi's" Kitab al Maghazi in pointing out the role of Abī Sufyān, the father of the first Umayyad caliph, Muʿāwiyah ibn Abī Sufyān Al Waqidi: Abu Abdullah Mohammed ibn Umar AlWaqidi, born in 747 in Medina, was a renowned Muslim historian and jurist. Al-Waqidi worked as a wheat trader for most of his life. However, his occupation would not deter him from studying fhiq in al-Masjid al Nabawi as a student of Malik ibn Anas.  By the age of 50, Al-Waqidi migrated to Baghdad where he lived as a judge under Harun Al Rasheed and then appointed as a qadi in the city of Resafa under Harun's heir, Al Mamun. Due to his connection with the current Abbasid ruler, AlWaqidi had an immense collection of sources and books to use at his disposal.  One of his most famous works includes Kitab al-Tarikh wa al-Maghazi which narrates the life of the Prophet Mohammed in Medina and a description of the numerous battles that took place. AlWaqidi continued the rest of his life in Baghdad under AlMamun's court until his death in 822. Kitab Al Maghazi: AlWaqidi's Kitab Al Maghazi is a collection of what mostly remained of AlWaqidi's work. The book mentions in detail most of the ghazawat (battles in which the Prophet Mohammed was present) during the time of the Prophet. From the events leading to Badr (624 AD) until the death of the Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) in 632 AD. In 1855 the first modern Arabic printed version was published in Kolkata, India. More than a century later in 2011, the book was translated for the first time in English by Rizwi Faizer under the title "The Life of Muhammed- Al Waqidis Kitab al-Maghazi."  There is a debate regarding the authenticity of AlWaqidi's sources and interpretations of the text. He has been accused by several scholars such as Al-Shafi'i, Ahmad bin Hanbal, Gregor Schoeler, and Wellhausen-Horowitz for fabricating, altering, and plagiarizing from Ibn Ishaq's "Sirat al-Nabi".   Donald P. Little does splendid work in comparing the works of Ibn Ishaq and AlWaqidi whereby proving the latter's work is accurate and paid "closer attention to details and specifics, exemplary anecdotes, and recurring motifs".  Abu Sufyan ibn Harb in Kitab Al Maghazi: Sakhr bin Harb, or most commonly known as Aby Sufyan bin Harb was one of the most prominent figures in the life of the prophet Mohammed (PBUH). Abu Sufyan was openly against the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) for most of the Prophets life, until Fatteh Makkah (630 AD) when he converted to Islam. Aby Sufyan is mentioned early on in Kitab AlMaghazi for his role in the events leading to the battle of Badr and his strategic maneuver of the Quraishi caravan in avoiding the Muslim army that sought to pillage the caravan.  There isn't a detailed description of Abu Sufyan's role in the battle of Badr. However, there is mention of him inciting the Quraish not to be saddened by the death of their family, but instead divert that sorrow into anger towards the Muslims.  Following the battle of Badr, Aby Sufyan became the tribal leader of Quraish. Almost a year after Badr, Abu Sufyan provoked Quraish to raise an army against the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) in the battle of Uhud.  Unlike in Badr, Abu Sufyan led the army of Quraish against the Muslims which ended in a stalemate after the Muslims suffered massive losses and the Quraish were unable to take Medina.  Two years after Uhud, Aby Sufyan led the final battle, known as the battle of AlKhandaq against the Muslims in Medina, which ultimately led to a Muslim victory.  Eventually, there was a truce between Quraish and the Muslims, known as Treaty of Hudaybiyyah.  However, the treaty was broken when an allied tribe of Quraish attacked an allied Muslim tribe. This conflict led to the conquest of Makkah whereby the Muslims seized control over Makkah. Before the conquest, however, Abu Sufyan was vigorously traveling back and forth from Makkah to Medina to renew the treaty. In one of the journeys to Medina, Abu Sufyan was invited to speak to the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) under the protection of his uncle, AlAbbas ibn Abdul Muttalib.  It is during the company of AlAbbas that Aby Sufyan was able to speak directly, more than once, with the Prophet, and ultimately led to Abu Sufyan's conversion to Islam after the conquest of Makkah.  After the conquest of Makkah, Abu Sufyan fought with the Prophet's in the battle of Al-Ta'if.  Reference Dhahabī, Muḥammad ibn Aḥmad. MīZāN Al-IʻtidāL Fī Naqd Al-RijāL.

Alejandra Almuelle was born in Arequipa, Peru. She spent few years in Pizac in the Sacred Valley of Cuzco, a center for ceramic making. Peru is a country in which the abundance of clay has made this medium a language of artistic expression. Clay is its own idiom, and being there, she began to speak it. After she moved to Austin, she started working with clay. Addressing the functionality of the medium as well as its sculptural expression has been equally important for her. She has participated in art fairs, shows, galleries and museums with both pottery and sculpture.
