His scholarship is evident in his works and articles encompassing the fields of history and literature. The objective of this study was to showcase his background and his authority as a scholarly figure on the history and civilization of al-Andalus. A qualitative study approach was employed via historical study and content analysis methods by analyzing primary and contemporary sources. This study argues that Dozy was a meticulous historian who carefully selected his sources of reference in writing his works. In fact, his works attained recognition of other Western Orientalist scholars apart from being reference for researchers of the Islamic history and civilization, in particular the Islamic history and civilization in al-Andalus.
