    ... re, an Arab army under Uqba ibn Nafi established the town of Al Qayrawan about 160 kilometerss south of present- day Tunis and used it as a base for further operations. Abu al Muhajir Dina, Uqba's successor, pushed westward into Algeria and eventually worked out a modus vivendi with Kusayla, the ruler of an extensive confederation of Christian Berbers.

    ... deliver them from oppression and establish a kingdom in which justice prevailed. A document has been preserved known as the Constitution of Medina. In its present form, it is a combination of at least two earlier documents and was probably compiled later than 627, but its main provisions are almost certainly those originally agreed upon between Muhammad and the Muslims of Medina. In form the document creates a confederation on traditional Arab lines among nine groups; eight Arab clans and the emigrants from Mecca.
