Provinces of the Abbasid Caliphate with a Map

With the help of a map, can you guess all provinces that made up the Abbasid Caliphate at its peak around 850 AD?
Note that some of these provinces were ruled by autonomous dynasties within the caliphate.
Some provinces were only paritally ruled by the Tahirids while also partially being under direct control of the Caliph, thus they are listed twice. These borders are outlined in red.
(Mostly) according to this map.
