Maps

 

http://www.princeton.edu/~humcomp/dimensions.html -- excellent source of Middle Eastern maps compiled by Princeton University, some are outside the targeted area of time, but all are good nonetheless

 

http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/~bvon/pages/maps.html -- similar to the Princeton site in style, but offers different maps and about 90% directly apply to early Islam, produced by a professor at Pennsylvania University

 

http://www.mhhe.com/socscience/history/world/bentley/stud_olc/chap13intmap.htm# -- interactive map supplied by the Bentley website, very informative.
