Ahmed -

	See: Najm A. Bezirgan "The Islamic World" pp. 375-387 in
             T. F. Glick, (ed). The Comparative Reception of Darwinism.
             Univ of Texas Press, 1974.

	I know this has been reprinted by someone else, possibly U
Chicago press. THe chapter is full of primary references to Arabic

Hope this helps.
