لا اله الا , There is no diety except
الله وحده  , (the one) God alone
لا شريك له , He has no equal
ابو العباس بن  , Abu'l 'Abbas son
أمير المؤمنين  , of the commander of the faithful
Inner margin: Mint and date بسم الله ضرب هذا الدرهم بنصيبين سنة أربع وثلثمائة
The date is 304 AH, and mint is " Nasibin نصيبين‎ ".
Outer Margin: لله الامر من قبل و من بعد و يومئذن يفزح المؤمنون بنصر الله  , To God is the will before and after and on that day the believers shall rejoice in God's victory

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