[1] Maghazi of the Prophet Muhammad.

[2] Futūḥ (“Conquests”) and Faḍā’il (“Excellences”)

A considerable body of both both Futūḥ (“Conquests”; “Openigs”) and Faḍā’il (“Excellences”) as reflected in the Ḥadīth-“Compendia of traditions” (= [2] above) literatures, grew up in the early Islamic centuries.  In the Islamic celebration, for example, of the glory and excellence of Qur’an and related divine revelations, specific holy days, persons and geographical locations,  various biblical texts and traditions were much drawn upon.  Among the Fadā'il al-Qur'ān ("The Excellences of the Qur'an")

al-Qāsim ibn Sallām ibn `Abd-Allah Abī `Ubayd al-Harawī (d. 157/224) was an early  Sunni Hadith  scholar and philologist who authored the Gharīb al-Ḥadīth, Kitāb Faḍā'il al-Qur'ān and many other works. NB. Kitāb Faḍā'il al-Qur'ān. (3rd printing) Damascus-Beirut: Dār Ibn Kathīr, 1420/1999. 478pp. incl. indexes. SL-USA*
