Most probably you will be able to use all what has been written about cohesion and coherence in English and then transfer what is useful and meaningful to apply in Arabic.

Thanks everyone! To answer: I am most interested in texts in Arabic, Persian, and English. What I am most interested is how hijra has changed in meaning. Originally, it refers to the hijra of Muhammad, but then later, it came to apply to all Muslims, for example when Muslims were expelled from al-Andalus and then from the Caucasus to Ottoman lands. I am interested in tracing this history, in tracking how hjira has changed over the centuries, while also examining how it has stayed the same, and how the story from Muhammad's life reverberates in the present, among Muslims today. For example, the term hijra is also used in connection with the Palestinian nakba. Obviously the meaning and context is different, but I want to bring these different usages into comparison.
