 The Apology of Al-Kindy
He is spoken of as the paternal cousin of the Moslem writer; his just and tolerant sway is repeatedly acknowledged by Al Kindy; the descent of the dynasty from the family of Mahomet is over and again referred to, and our Author prays that the Empire may long be perpetuated in his Patron's line.
But the manner in which the Caliph is throughout referred to in both, accords entirely with the assumption that they were written at his court.
All this is, perfectly natural, and in entire consistency with the ascription of the work to a courtier in the reign of Al Mâmûn. /islam/library/Al-Kindi/p024-025.htm   (193 words) - al- Mamun (Middle Eastern History, Biography) - Encyclopedia

As Mamun, the Abbasid caliph the contemporary of Imam Reza (A.S.), had coins minted with the name of Imam Reza (A.S.) on them, it was very easy for the Muslims to carry the name of Holy Imam (A.S.) with them, especially when they went on journeys.
To show to the people how much he thought of Imam (A.S.), Mamun changed the colour of his court from black to green [the colour of the Imams (A.S.)], he also had new coins made with Imam Ali ar-Reza's (A.S.) name on it.

The "Philosopher" was unquestionably a professed Mahometan, which at once dispels the notion that he could have had any hand in the Apology.
And the internal evidence (apart altogether from that supplied by the quotation from Al Bîrûni) affords the strongest presumption that the work is what it professes to be,—namely, an Apology in /islam/library/Al-Kindi/p006-007.htm   (360 words)
