Dear maudry, I can read the following in Arabic:
First photo
Field
السلطان الأعظم , al-Sultan al-Azam, the great Sultan
علاء الدنيا , Alaa aldunya, the Alaa (Supreme) of life
والدين أبو الفتح , wa al-Din abu al-Fath, and the religion abu al-Fath (Conquest).
محمد ابن السلطان , Muhammad Ibn al-Sultan
سمرقند , not sure about the mint Samarkand?
Margin
Only " wa Sit mia وستمائه " is visible, and Six hundred, date could be 615?
Second photo
Field
لا اله الا , La Illah illa
الله محمد , Allah
رسول الله , Rasul Allah
الناصر لدين , Al-Nasir li-Din
الله , Allah
Referring to the Abbasid caliph in Baghdad "Al-Nasir li-Din Allah (AH 575622 /11801225 AD).
Margin
The legend is not readable.
please note that a similar coin to yours is shown on Numista:
Dinar - ?Ala al-din Muhammad "Muhammad II of Khwarezm" (small flan) -
I hope that helps in the ID.

Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".

I am pretty sure this is the same specimen as this one on Zeno, where it is attributed to Ghazna ?

Thank you Anthony, I was not sure about the mint place but now I am glad that you have confirmed it as " Ghazna غزنه ".

Thank you gentlemen.
Yes it is the same coin, although I did not post it there.
On zeno, I found this one :https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=63788
No mint but dated 615 as suggested by Maythem for my coin.
