The author's most favorite topic is the study of the dates, weather and climatic conditions prevailing at the time of the Hijrah (Emigration) and some other important Ghazwat. Also their synchronism in relation to the Christian Era dates.
The author is of the view that the corresponding Christian dates do not synchronizes with the weather and climatic conditions which prevailed at the time of the Ghazwat (Expeditions) of the prophet Muhammad. This wrong synchronism of the Christian date prompted the author to work on this topic. The author has been engaged in this work since 1984 and divided the whole study. into three phases: Phase-I The Study of the various calendrical systems Phase-II The Study of the synchronizing of Phase-III The Study of the Islamic events in the Muslim and Christian dates relation to the dates, time and prevailing weather conditions and their synchronism in Chriastian dates. The first two phases of the study have been completed and published in three volumes under the titles of The compendium of the Calendars; The Compendium of the Muslim and Christian Dates and Interchanging Muslim and Christian Era Dates.
