Hi,
Copper or maybe billon.
Not sure if the second image has been correctly orientated?

Dear maudry, I have corrected the orientation of the second photo where it says " Wahdahu وحده ". I think it is Umayyad copper coin:
Left photo:
محمد رسول الله , Muhammad Rasul Allah
Right photo:
(وحده (لا شريك له  , Wahdahu (La Sharik Lahu).

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

Looks overstruck, with parts of the host sticking out: left picture 7 to 11 o'clock, right picture 8 to 12 o'clock.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Thank you.
Yes, I found some approximate matches with Umayyad falus.
Certainly overstruck, which made me wonder how to orientate it.

I found this on zeno.
I didn't find any on zeno though that shows evidence of being overstruck on another coin.
Here is another example which has also been struck over another fals which is close to this one on zeno, not overxtruck.

Host for both coins is the Imperial bust type, AE fals, Hims.
Host would be something like this: https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=238519
