You can read this book ‘تاريخ الماسونية العام: منذ نشأتها إلى هذا اليوم ‘جُرجي زيدان although you must forget the part concerning Masonry in the Middle East since most of the data is old news, no longer accurate, But i found the general info on the history of Freemasonry not bad at all, it presents good research, good dates and accurate data.

Good Luck

Thank you

Might I also offer the idea of reading Freemasonry for Dummies?
This is an outstanding book that will give you a good picture of Masonry, who we are and what we stand for.
The Other books suggested are all very good, and well worth reading.

Your biggest problem is that even if these books WERE in Arabic, it is doubtful you could buy them in Iraq.  Do you have access to buy from amazon.com and can you get books shipped to you privately in Iraq?  That would help you get the ENGLISH books, but they would still need to be translated by an expert.

Unfortunately my brother can not get the books and can not be brought to Iraq easily
In addition, it is difficult to translate into Arabic because no one can tell anyone that these are Masonic books

I would not trust an online translator to handle the intricate subject of Freemasonry.

This is true because Internet translation is inaccurate

When a Freemason told me it was a human honor to be Mason.
I then searched and collected as much information about Freemasonry as I could get
But every day I find things complicated and not easy

That’s right. Freemasonry is certainly complicated and is not easy to figure out on your own. The only way you could truly understand Freemasonry is to join and go through the degrees and do the work with brothers. You cannot ever really understand what it means to be a Mason without being one. No amount of reading will replace the experience of the three degrees. That’s why we exist.

If all one had to do to reap the benefits of Freemasonry was to read a book there would be no point to joining.
