Abstract: Little attention to comets has been paid by Arab historians, and historians of science have mainly focused on observations in Europe and the Far East. Quite recently, three Arab scholsrs have published studies about Middle Eastern cometary observations. This paper discusses the contributions of Dr. Wafeeq Shaker Rida, Dr. Hasan Basurra, and Mr. Mohammad Zahed Abu Ghudda.
