'"Scholars of Islamic history should breathe a communal sigh of relief with the appearance of Afsaruddin's in-depth analysis in "Excellence and Precedence..."Afsaruddin's study, notably its meticulous approach to surveying an impressive range of primary sources in Arabic, will be appreciated by those scholars who wish to know more about such polemics and the theoretical underpinnings that come with them."' Colin Paul Mitchell, "Journal of the American Oriental Society," 2004. '"Afsaruddin s work is truly seminal the book s epistemic value is immense In academe, the work should be a vital part of any reading list for graduate comprehensive examinations in Islamic studies."'
