Abstract: This paper aims to study new Islamic epigraphical material found in the Jordanian Badia. These inscriptions include one hadith and one inscription dating to the thirteenth century ce / eighth century ah. This study will highlight the relationship between the place where the inscriptions were found and the early Islamic mosque also said to be located there. The purpose of this article is to publish images of the newly-found inscriptions, give a translation, and provide some commentary. This article considers the definition of Islamic inscription to be all Arabic inscriptions written since Islamic times.
