Abstract

Our study shed light on one of the important historical literature that provided ample information about the Arab kingdoms that arose in the northern and central Arabian Peninsula, and which are in direct contact with the Byzantine Empire, so this book bore the title: (Arabs on the Borders of Byzantium), for his author Russian orientalist Nina Victorvna Begolyevskaya.This study is considered the most promising of a series of studies presented by our Orientalist, who is the subject of the study on the history of ancient Arabs, as she is one of the few Orientalists who have dealt with the study of these kingdoms. When its history is shrouded in many mysteries; Therefore, I relied in their study on the historical sources closest to the event, especially the classic books represented by: (Roman, Greek and Syriac), as these sources are an eyewitness to a set of historical events that were associated with those kingdoms in political, economic or religious aspects.Kinda was one of those kingdoms whose history is marred by many mysteries. As a result of its frequent migrations to more than one place, whether in its southern areas of residence or after its migration to the middle of the Arabian Peninsula, as well as its association with the subordination of a number of countries also in its first age, as well as its association with several tribes, and this came as a result of mixing between them through migration and housing next to them or through Intermarriage.The ambiguity increased widely in its second age, represented by its residence in the middle of the Arabian Peninsula, and we find at times it enjoys strong political relations and friendship with Byzantium, and this was evident in the visits, gifts and money that Byzantium gave to this kingdom, as well as political titles, and at other times it tends to its politics. Towards the Sasanian Empire and its support in its policy, but they went to more than that, which is the reference of the authors to the conversion of the Canadian harith to their religious doctrine during the era of Qabbad, in order to obtain political gains, which made it lose good treatment from these countries, and this is one of the reasons for its collapse in a short period. And its fall and the end of its existence in the middle of the Arabian Peninsula.
