Abstract

[The article examines Ibn Fadlan'a Epistle describing his travels to the land of the Bulgars (Slavs), commissioned by the Abbasid Caliph al-Muqtadir Billah. Ibn Fadlan relays his experiences of the various people he encounters: their practices, rituals, economic activities, and beliefs, focusing on such material aspects as clothing, housing, ect. The article analyzes the Epistle as an early cultural record and an important example of Muslim travelers' curiosity about other peoples. ﺗﺘﻨﺎﻭﻝ ﻫﺬﻩ ﺍﻟﻤﻘﺎﻟﺔ ﻭﺻﻒ ﺍﺑﻦ ﻓﻀﻼﻥ ﻓﻲ ﺭﺳﺎﻟﺘﻪ ﻟﺮﺣﻠﺘﻪ ﺇﻟﻰ ﺍﻟﺒﻠﻐﺎﺭ٬ ﺗﻠﻚ ﺍﻟﺮﺣﻠﺔ ﺍﻟﺘﻲ ﻗﺎﻡ ﺑﻬﺎ ﺑﻨﺎﺀً ﻋﻠﻰ ﺃﻣﺮ ﻣﻦ ﺍﻟﺨﻠﻴﻔﺔ ﺍﻟﻌﺒﺎﺳﻲ ﺍﻟﻤﻘﺘﺪﺭ ﺑﺎﻟﻠﻪ٠ ﻭﻗﺪ ﺗﻮﻗّﻒ ﺍﺑﻦ ﻓﻀﻼﻥ ﻋﻨﺪ ﺍﻟﺸﻌﻮﺏ ﺍﻟﻤﺨﺘﻠﻔﺔ ﺍﻟﺘﻲ ﻣﺮ ﺑﻬﺎ ﻭﻣﻤﺎﺭﺳﺎﺗﻬﻢ ﻭﺷﻌﺎﺋﺮﻫﻢ ﻓﻲ ﺣﻴﺎﺗﻬﻢ ﺍﻟﻴﻮﻣﻴﺔ٬ ﻭﺃﻧﺸﻄﺘﻬﻢ ﺍﻻﻗﺘﺼﺎﺩﻳﺔ٬ ﻭﺩﻳﺎﻧﺎﺗﻬﻢ٬ ﻭﺍﻫﺘﻢ ﺧﻼﻝ ﺫﻟﻚ ﺃﻳﻀﺎﹰ ﺑﻮﺻﻒ ﺍﻟﻤﻈﺎﻫﺮ ﺍﻟﻤﺎﺩﻳﺔ ﻣﻦ ﻣﻠﺒﺲ ﻭﻣﺴﻜﻦ ﻭﺧﻼﻓﻪ٠ ﻭﺗﺤﻠﻞ ﺍﻟﻤﻘﺎﻟﺔ ﺍﻟﺮﺳﺎﻟﺔ ﻛﺴﺠﻞ ﺛﻘﺎﻓﻲ ﻣﺒﻜﺮ٬ ﻭﻣﺜﻞ ﻣﻬﻢ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺍﻫﺘﻤﺎﻡ ﺍﻟﺮﺣﺎﻟﺔ ﺍﻟﻤﺴﻠﻤﻴﻦ ﺑﺄﺣﻮﺍﻝ ﺍﻟﺸﻌﻮﺏ ﺍﻷﺧﺮﻯ ﻓﻲ ﺃﺩﻕ ﺗﻔﺎﺻﻴﻠﻬﺎ٠]
