Abstract: At the foot of a mountain locally known as 'Upper Nạla Mountain' in the centre of Rǐla quarter which lies on the southeastern part of Najran city, an Islamic inscription written in Arabic Kufic script and a reproduction of its contents in Musnad script were recently found. They are located about three metres apart. Beside the Kufic inscription there were two other Islamic inscriptions; one of them belongs to the same person mentioned in the bilingual inscription, whereas the other refers to a different person. These two inscriptions will be included in this paper because of their temporal and spatial link to the bilingual inscription and their historical significance in assisting its dating .
