Hello everyone.
I have these two apparently Islamic coins, but I don't know what people they belong to. Maybe they are mamluk, but I'm not sure

Looks to me like Indian dump coinage from 16-19th c. This is just a guess based on style of characters, flan, etc.

Thank you my friend.
I have another Mamluk coin.
I believe it is:
Dirham - Burji dynasty - Sultan Barquq

Could you tell me more about this coin?

Yes, Barquq, Halab (Aleppo) mint, date missing. Partial titles and mint legible. Variety not in Balog but compare 552 for type. This specimen from Zeno is very similar to yours: https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=250706.
