Dear Paul, your coin:
India, Amirs of Sindh (Habbarids), Silver 'Qandhari' Dirham (870-1030 AD)
Reverse (First photo):
محمد رسول الله الامير , Muhammad Rasul Allah al-Amir
Obverse (Second photo):
لا اله الا الله وحده لا شريك له  , la ilah illa allah wahdahu la sharik lahu
The name of the ruler should be after the word al-Amir (not visible).
The Habbari (اﻹﻣﺎرة اﻟﻬﺒﺎرﻳﺔ‎) were an Arab dynasty that ruled much of Greater Sindh, in modern-day Pakistan, as a semi-independent emirate from 854 to 1024. Beginning with the rule of 'Umar bin Abdul Aziz al-Habbari in 854 CE, the region became semi-independent from the Abbasid Caliphate in 861, while continuing to nominally pledge allegiance to the Abbasid Caliph in Baghdad.

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