Excerpt from A Commentary on the Book of Daniel

The other historical allusions do not contradict this result. Jephet knows of the taking of Antioch, Tarsus, and 'ainzarbah by the Greeks 1; these events happened in 359, 354, and 351 respectively. The pillaging of the Ka'bah by the Carmathians under Abu Tahir in 317 (929) is made much of 2, although the Black Stone was restored in 338, and the Temple itself repaired, of which Jephet, who has some strange opinions about the nature of the Ka'bah, does not seem to have heard; however, their pro hibition of the Pilgrimage, in which he finds the fulfilment of the taking away of the continual,' lasted as late as 403 (1012) 3; and although their power was on the decline after Abu Tahir's death, they continued long. To make themselves felt in Syria and Egypt. In 360 they take Da mascus, Ramleh, and Jaffa in 375 (985) they capture Cufa5; the prophecy therefore that 'they will certainly take Baghdad was quite likely to be realised, and indeed had already been partly realised in 330 7. We cannot therefore wonder at the important place assigned them by Jephet in the history of the Arabian empire. Further, the reference to 'the non-abbasid lord of Islam, established at Baghdad points to a date. After 334 when the title of Sultan was conferred on the Buyid conqueror.
