PREFACE. 



Eaely in 1870 I was honoured by the Indian Government with the commission to prepare 
a Catalogue raisonne of the Arabic MSS. in the Library of the India Office. I was engaged 
on this task, in London, from April 1870 to July 1872. Unfortunately nearly double 
that time has been spent in carrying the work through the press. 

The larger half of the MSS. belong to the great collection of Muhammadan MSS. 
of the East India House. This collection was formed from the libraries of Warren Hastings, 
Tippu Sultan, Eichaed Johnson, the Gaikwar, Dr. Leyden, etc. It comprised above 
3000 volumes, which were not even classed according to the diflferent languages (Arabic, 
Persian, Urdu, Malay, etc.). In 1869 the Arabic portion was picked out, for the first time, 
by Dr. G. Hoffmann (now Professor in Kiel), who also drew up a list, in which the numbers 
were arranged according to subjects. The original numeration was left unaltered. 

With the exception of the library of Tippu, — of which Major Charles Stewart had 
prepared a catalogue, whilst it was still in the College of Port William,* — these Arabic MSS. 
have remained comparatively little known, and only one has, to my knowledge, been used 
for an edition.t 

The remaining MSS. belong to the Bijdpur collection, which consists almost entirely 
of Arabic books, only a few being Persian. A full account of the discovery of this collection, 
and of the transactions connected with its removal from Bijapiir, may be found in the 
Bombay Government Records, No. XLL, New Series, pp. 210 sqq. It was once the Eoyal 
Library of the 'Adil-Shahs, but was subsequently removed to the Asar Mahall Jjs^^l, an 
ecclesiastical establishment, which owed its name to the possession of some relics of the 
Prophet. There the library was still to be found in 1849, when the attention of the 
Government of Bombay was drawn to it by a report of Mr. H. B. E. (now Sir Babtle) 
Frere (see Bomb. Gov. Eec, I.e., pp. 215 sqq.). This gentleman also prevailed on a learned 
Muhammadan, named HamId al-din Hakim, to prepare a catalogue in Urdu, which was 
translated by Mr. Ersklne (Bomb. Gov. Eec, I.e., pp. 221 sqq.). After being removed, in 

* A Descriptive Catahgue of the Oriental Library of Tippoo Sultan of Mysore, etc. etc. Cambridge, 1809. These MSS. are now 
described partly as MSS. of Tippu, and partly as MSS. of the College of Fort William, 
t 1442 Johnson (No. 382 of this Catalogue). 



vi PREFACE. 

1851, to Satara, the whole collection was janally sent to London in 1853. Here it was 
examined, and a catalogue of it drawn up, in Arabic, by Mr. Eizkallah IIassotjk, in 1869. 
In order to distinguish these MSS. from those of the old stock, the letter B has been prefixed 
to their numbers. 

These Bijapur MSS. were, on the whole, in a sad condition. Damp, vermin, and 
habitual neglect, had combined to do their work of destruction on the treasures of the Asar 
Mahall. They were generally deprived of their bindings ; most of them were defective 
and in disorder ; some were mere bundles of rubbish. However, I did not spare time and 
trouble in ascertaining the doubtful fragments, in re-arranging the leaves, and in noting 
the sometimes numerous defects. Now that they have been duly bound and mended, these 
MSS. will, I hope, still be considered a valuable portion of the Library. 

In most of these MSS. there is a note, stating the dates at which they were incorporated 
with the Library of Bijapur ; to which the names of the former owners are frequently added. 
I have usually quoted these statements at the foot of the single articles, with the abbrevia- 
tion Bij. Lihr. Subsequently to the taking of Bijapur by Aurangzib, a.h. 1097 ( = a.d. 1686), 
the Library of the Asar Mahall was inspected by an officer of the latter, named Kabil Khan. 
It was again surveyed, by order of Asaf Jah, — iljs*-'! cij^r- -y jS^ j^\ i_^m»*. — a.h. 1146 
( = A.D. 1733). Identical notes (and seals) to this effect being in most of the books, I have 
not taken any special notice of them. As to the Catalogue Hakm-Ersldne^ it was easy to 
identify most of its items, by means of the inscriptions, however inaccurate, which Hakim 
himself had given to the fragments. This is the meaning of the abbreviation Catal., or 
Cat, which will usually be found at the end of the articles. 

In the literary notes, I have referred, as far as possible, to Hcijji Khalifah's Biblio- 
graphical Dictionary, as edited by Fluegel {H. Kh\ and to the printed Catalogues of 
various collections ; but I have avoided needless quotations. 

A list of Addenda et Corrigenda which occurred to me, after the respective sheets 
were printed, will be found on a subsequent page. 

In conclusion, I have to express my best thanks to Dr. EosT, the Librarian of the 
India Office Library, who first conceived the plan of cataloguing all the collections under his 
charge ; and to Professor Wm. "Wright, for his kindness in reading a proof of each sheet as 
it passed through the press, in order to correct faults of style and idiom. That in doing so 
he also saved me from some more material errors need scarcely be said.

of his son, Abu Nasr al-Hasan, he combined the con- 
tents of both in a third and more abridged work, — the

Kh. vi. b; Ibn Khallikan, ed. "Wiistenfeld, No. iir; 
and Cat. iSodl. ii. 701. 

It begins with a long and detailed explanation of the 
first Surah, which forms a separate book." The first words 
are (fol. 9) : 'cyLUJl J^l '\Si \^, ^ JJl aU j^^

The commentary on the following Sarahs (Su. 2

rather of separate tracts, which are often subdivided 
into different JjL*.^ . The whole text of the Koran is 
inserted in portions. 

The present MS. consists of two volumes. The first, 
which concludes with Su. 3 (on fol. 220), has the 
following colophon :

The Imams are always spoken of collectively (X*j!!l

doctrines regarding them. Its chief authorities are 
'All, Abu Ja'far (Muhammad Bakir), and Abu 'Abd-

Isnads with the compiler is generally not expressed.'

are noticed. There probably exists some relation between the 
two books. To conclude from the evidence of Tiisi before 
mentioned, the present work might be considered an augmented 
edition of the original work of Sa'd. This would also account for 
the strange introduction of the Isnads noticed above.

said in favour of religious contention in the Koran, 
to which he subjoins an account of the various disputes 
of the Prophet with idolaters, Jews, and Christians. 
He then proceeds to relate at great length the claims 
and arguments of 'All, and subsequently those of the 
other Imams in succession. Each of them is repre- 
sented as pleading his cause in speeches and disputa- 
tions, or in letters. The work is accordingly divided into

is an abridgment of that work, with additions by

and the Koran. The discrepant traditions are intro-

See also H. Kh. v. 431 sq., and Fliigel, Class, hanef.

The authenticity of this work has been questioned 
from the very beginning, and it has also been con- 
founded with the ^^j^\ li^=^t (H. Kh. v. 431)— 
the latter certainly without reason, as both works are 
very clearly distinguished in H. Kh. I.e. The identity 

of the present text with the ^c<ms>.j^ W-^"* is proved 
from the beginning and extracts of the preface as 
given by H. Kh. Less certaiuty may be attributed to 
his statement, that this is the larger edition in ten vols. 
The present text, at least, is complete in two vols. 
No other copy of the work is known to exist.

A Commentary on a work on Hanafite Law, im- 
perfect at the heginning, and without title. The 
author of the original work is only alluded to 

by the words ^_ov.a^l *L»1!! Ju.u*ll; however, from 
occasional quotations of other works, especially his 

jJij^\ ,' he appears to be Saiyid Ndsir al-dln Abu'l- 
Kasim Muhammad b. Ttisuf Samarkand! Madani (d. 

A.H. 556),* and the work commented on here, his <Uul\ 

jJUI . Cf. H. Kh. vi. 291 ; Fleischer, Cat. Lips. 
477 sq. ; and Aumcr, Hdss. Miinch. 94. 

The author of the commentary is the well-known 
Abu'l-barakat 'Abdallah b. Ahmad Nasapi (d. A.n. 711). 
This commentary is described by H". Kh. (I.e.), who 
also gives an abstract of the epUogue. It is probably 
entitled ^suaiujj^\ . The chief authority of Fasafi 
is Badr al-din Kardarl (Muhammad b. Mahmud), 
commonly called Khwaharzadah (d. a.h. 651), the 
nephew of that Kardarl (Shams al-a'immah Mu- 
hammad b. 'Abd al-sattar, d. a.h. 642) who is men- 
tioned in the epilogue.' Very likely, therefore, the 
" commentary by a disciple of Kardarl," subsequently 
noted by H. Kh.,* is not different from the present 
work. Cf. Flugel, Class. 323. 

Only the first words of the passages commented are 
given (with i^<^), but the books, chapters, and sections 
of the original work are marked throughout. Hence 
it would appear that the Leipzig MS. is incomplete. 
The following headings are to be inserted into the list

The beginning of this MS. (20 foil.) has been

are : cils^b iJij^ . The final portion has been partly 
destroyed by white-ants. Still, the MS. is valuable 
enough, as it is written in a very good hand, though 
without diacritical points, and, as far as can be made 
out from the conclusion, seems to have been transcribed 
by the author himself. Unfortunately, the passage is 
much injured. After a short prayer, the author says :

This is a mere compilation from various works on 
law, rites, and morals, which are frequently quoted. 
Most of these date from the sixth, seventh, and eighth 
centuries, though the compiler certainly belongs to a 
more modem period. The order of arrangement is the 
common one, save that a JjJI c_>li^ has been added 
at the beginning, and JyA^\ l^\^ is followed by a 
rather long ljb\Jl\. ^^LusLHl <_>\5^ (fol. 317), with 
which the present MS. concludes. This, therefore, 
appears to be the first part only.

The Prayer-book of 'Ali Zain Ai-'ABiDiif, the fourth 
Imam of the Shl'ites (d. a.h. 94 or 92), transmitted 
to posterity by al-Mxttawakkil b. Harun Thakafi, on 
the authority of two grandsons of 'All. It is called 
iL.l<ll iJus.'^\. Cf. Tusl, p. nr, -who is, however, 
inaccurate,' and H. Kh. iii. 100. The work was printed 
at Calcutta, A.n. 1248, according to Bibl. Sprengcr. 
699 ; and it seems also to be contained in Cat. St. 
Petersb. 33, Ixii. 

The present text is given on the authority of Najm 
al-dln Abu'I-Hasan Muhammad b. al-Hasan . . . 'Alawi 
Husaini, who had it from Abu 'AbdaUah Muhammad 
b. Ahmad b. Shahriyar, guardian of the mausoleum 

' From the margin. 

' He appears to have confounded the names of Mutawakkil and 
his son 'Umair. 



of the Khalif 'All,' in Eabl' I., 516, etc. The IsnSd 
goes back to Mutawakkil, who gives the following 
account of the origin of the book. He was return- 
ing to Khurasan from the pilgrimage, when he met 
with Tahya b. Zaid b. 'All, and received from him 
a copy of these prayers, on the authority of his father, 
Zaid the Martyr. Subsequently, after Yahya had 
been kiUed (a.h. 125), he went again to Madlnah, 
where he showed his copy to Ja'far S&dik, who found 
it identical with a book in his possession, which had 
been written by his father, Muhammad b. 'All. From 
this Mutawakkil took a copy, Ja'far himself dictating. 
The book consisted originally of seventy-five chapters, 
but eleven were lost by him, so that he only kept some 
sixty chapters (bb ^^y^\ UIj l^o.* \^:Jiak>'^. 

"With the exception of the last statement, the same 
story is given with another Isnad, which, in Ibn 
Mu^ahhar, joins that of Tusl (I.e.). According to thia 
version, the book contained only fifty-four prayers,

which are enumerated, and are exactly the same as 
those, found in the present MS. There is, however,

seven more prayers, and formulae for each day of

of the Shl'ites are prayer, almsgiving, fasting, pilgri- 
mage, and holy war. The author begins with prayer, 
as that duty which is to be performed every day, 
and treats of it circumstantially in a separate part, 
<lLjji^ a^Ji ClpJijLr. This part is introduced by 
a treatise on ablution and other preparations for 
prayer. 

The second part (fol. 100».), is^W CjIjLc iiL-o, 
treats briefly of the remaining duties, according to 
their occurrence in the course of the year. It begins 
with Eamadan, the time for fasting, and concludes 
with Rajab. The rites of the pilgrimage are mentioned 
under Dhu'l-hijjah. *

is made for the former to the author's 'blfJ \ and ^j-'-O ' , 
and for the latter, to his —L^l .* 

The work concludes (fol. 213».) with three sets of 
prayers, recommended for special times, viz. morning 
and evening prayers, prayers for each day of the week, 
and such for the twelve hours of the day. For parti- 
culars the author refers to his ^Lxs^l . 

There are added (fol. 231) a charm, rules for the

'Abd al-kaiyum Musawl, who wrote it a.h. 1064, at 
Samarkand. This commentary waa not known to H. 
Kh. (see iv. 458), nor is it found elsewhere. 

See on the^)!l Asill, which is commonly (and also 
by the present commentator) ascribed to Ahu JTanifah 
(d. A.H. 150), Cat. Lugd. iv. 227, and A. von Kremer, 
Geschichte der herrschenden Ideen des Islams, p. 39 sqq. 
It was printed, with a Hindustani translation, at 
Lakhnau, a.h. 1260. 

The preface begins : ijMi H'^^s^j L_-»5f-UI <dl iX«Jl .

of a commentary had been bestowed upon the work before 
him (fol. 2): j^ ll-i ^^,;j_u U^, <d ^1 ^J J]^

and some notes by the author (marked with <uLd (t:^*

He says that he was chiefly offended with the self- 
conceit and the rude polemics of his predecessor, though 
he is not willing to follow his bad example, in depreciat-

is only to defend the divines of the later church, such as 
Hilll and others, against his exaggerations and false 
imputations.

all introduced by the words J^j^\ ^_-^-Js:■= ^^f, and 
subdivided according to the subjects into sections, which 
are usually inscribed . . d /»^^1 d J-=J . The above

<Lif^^\ i-j^AKiJl (LJblxJl), and reviles the Omayyades 
and Abbasides, etc. He then proceeds to say that he had 
observed that, under the constant oppression to which 
they were hitherto exposed, many, weak Shi'ahs had of 
late become doubtful as to their right of cursing the 
Sunnites. He therefore intends to prove, not only from 
the Koran, but even from their own traditions, that 
they are liable to be cursed. 

The work consists of an introduction (i»jJL<), on the 
meaning of cursing, and of seven sections, which contain 
arguments in support of the above assertion. Five of 
them refer to passages of the Koran, one to the Sunnah, 
and the seventh to the Shi 'ah (Imamiyah) tradition.

first, that he had already written several other works on 
theology (specified in a note on the margin as 4_-jli^ 
^_^\ ^J^f)>^, ^;s*^l e;:?*^ > etc.). He then proceeds to 
relate that, a.h. 877, he made the pilgrimage toMakkah, 
and after it visited ^iJ {i.e. Madlnah, according to a 
marginal note). He then went into 'Irak, and visited 
the tombs of the Imams there, and finally travelled into 
Khurasan, in order to pay his devotions to the tomb of 
'All Eida, at Mashhad. On his way thither he com- 
menced the treatise ^^ JLmII S\j, at the request of a 
travelling companion, and completed it after his arrival 
at Mashhad. Having subsequently made there the 
acquaintance of a distinguished Saiyid and descendant 
of 'All Rida, named Ghiyath al-din Muhsin b. Muham- 
mad, he was induced by him to write a commentary on 
the said treatise. He completed this commentary, as 
we learn from the conclusion, on Wednesday, 17tli 
Dhu'l-hijjah, 878, at the mansion of the Saiyid.

An account of three disputations (^^^Jlst*) which 
the author, a Sht'ite, had with one MoUa Harawl, on 
differences of the two sects. The name of the author 
is, as appears from the opening of the first meeting, 
Muhammad, from L»s~l, properly 'l*uj>-i!l, al-Ahsa, in 
Bahrain, and he is evidently identical with Muhammad 
b. 'All b. . . . Abu'l-jumhur, the author of XI. The 
present treatise seems to be the same as Cat. Mus. Brit. 
403, xxxiii. 

Begins: cuUL* lS'j4^ ^Jt^i ^Jh^ (J«a»- i^^jiJl J^ 

^^l^ Jli J_,lil ,jA^\ j^U- cU5 J *«^ cuJjV 

It appears that the meetings took place at Mashhad, 
where the author lived with Saiyid Muhsin, the same 
whom he mentions in the preface of XI., where he 
describes his journey to Mashhad, A.n. 878. The first 
and third meetings took place in the mansion of the said 
Saiyid, the second on the iXoJl j*^, or 10th Dhu'l- 
hijjah, in the Academy of Sultan Shahrukh Mlrza. 
The altercation chiefly turned on the Imamate and the 
Chalifate, and concluded with the defeat of the oppo- 
nent, who, as the author asserts, had at last almost 
made up his mind to become a Shi 'ah.

give his name, made this selection for the use of a 
friend. It would appear that he was a contemporary 
of Mufld, and that the latter was still alive, when 
this selection was made. Probably it is the work 
of Abu Ja'fae Ttrsi (d. a.h. 460).

I. Foil. 1-102. An unfinished System of Philosophy, 
accompanied by a Commentary ; both by the celebrated 
Indian philosopher MAHMtn jAUNFtTEi Farukl, who 
flourished in the eleventh century. The original text 
((^^1) is entitled lji\l\ ii^Cs'l, and the commentary 
iijUl i^jmaJ^S. Under the latter title the work was 
printed at Lakhnau, a.h. 1280. See regarding the 
author Afsos's Araish-i-mahfil, Calcutta, 1809, p. Si. 
Compare no. 554. 

The preface begins: ^J\:^\ J>^ <dll St\. The 
author wrote it during his last illness. He gives in it an 
account of his work. It was to extend over all the parts 
of Philosophy, viz., Logic, Physics, and Metaphysics ; 
but only the Physics had been worked out to a certain 
point, while the other two parts, the third in particular, 
remained in an unfinished state. 

The author disposes at the same time of some ma- 
terials which he did not use for the present work ; 
namely, discussions regarding the elements ((.i-^r>-U,l 
*Uiii>-lll ^jL/«j <L-a-l.T. r .^l), which are to form a separate 
treatise under the title ii»Jl <Liij Jis.- ^^ ifjUil <(j>-jjiil 

In accordance with the above statements, we have 
here only the physical (or second) part of the work, as 
far as it was finished. The original text as given in

follows it with J^l. Begins: .Ljlill <lL*.s)\ lu-JJ

ciple, Kamal al-dln Ahmad b. 'Abdallah, a descendant 
of Imam Husain.' He gives, as an authorization, the 
whole line of his predecessors from whom the mantle 
descended to himself. He had received several invest- 
ments of the present kind. That which he mentions 
first, the "mantle" of his Shaikh, Jamal al-din Yusuf 
'Abbasl Kassar, had, among others, passed through the 
hands of Shibli and Junaid, and originated with 'All ; 
another, which he had received from two Shaikhs,

more than thirteen years (?) to the mountains of

an ensuing meeting with his Shaikh, he offered it 
to him, and met with his highest approbation. He 
was then only twenty years of age (!). He wont 
afterwards to Gujarat, where his work gained great 
popularity. At the request of many students, he made 
a new and better arranged edition of it, — the present 
one. He completed this a.h. 956, being then fifty 
years old.

A large Commentary on a letter on mystic subjects, 
which Saiyid Ildtim b. Ahmad al-Ahdal Husainl of 
Mokha (d. in Muharram, 1013) wrote, A.n. 1004, to 
the author of this Commentary, who was his pupil. 
The name of the latter occurs on fol. Abv., viz., 'Abd 
Ai-KADiE B. Shaikh AX-'AiDAKtrs. He belonged to the 
'Alawl family, was bom A.n. 978, and died a.h. 1038, 
at Ahmadabad.' He wrote this commentary after the 
death of Hatim, a.h. 1016, and entitled it (fol. 2v.) 
»jU>- jLi.j^l ^jy ^ >-)LJl ^jJl . Cf. regarding 
Hatim, Catal. Mus. Brit. 309».

The commentary is preceded by a long memoir of 
Hatim, which contains numerous extracts from his 
writings and poems; also another short letter of his, 
addressed to Shaikh 'Abd al-wahhab Hindi, with 
ample comments; and (fol. 41f.) a fuU account of his 
correspondence with the author, which was miracu- 
lously continued after his death. It concludes on

The commentary begins with the Baimalah. The 
first words of the letter are (fol. 53) : ^^ V. '^ ^'*^

swelled by extracts from other works and long quo-

treats in a very prolix manner of Siifism and Saints 
in general ; he also gives an account of his Shaikhs and 
his spiritual pedigree. In the appendix ((-_>liiJ! ai^'lri. 
fol. 558«.) he speaks of the asking of forgiveness 
( jU)Ci-j1l), and winds up with a long Ea$idah, each 
verse of which begins : ajJl jsJc^\ . The date of the

An Abridgment of Ibn KhalUkdn^i Biographical 
Dictionary, made by his son MtrsA, for his private use, 
during the years 701 and 702 a.h. 

This is the author's rough copy, consisting origi- 
nally of two volumes. The earlier portion of the first 
volume, however, is lost. It begins now with the 
eighteenth quire {i^\^), which has been inscribed 
Jlill ^1 . ' The first article is 'All b. Aflah (no. 487, 
ed. "Wiistenfeld). It ends with the thirty-second quire, 
in the notice of Zamakhshart (ed. Wiistenfeld, no. 721), 
the last portion being also lost. The second volume 
(fol. 151), (Jlill JiLsT*^!, has a particular title, written 
by the author himself. It begins with the fourth 
fascicle of the original work (al-Mu'izz = no. 737, ed. 
Wiistenf.), and contains the rest of the book. It con- 
sists of twenty-three quires, but it has now several 
defects, especially in the twelfth and thirteenth quires ; 
some leaves of the latter are also misplaced in binding. 

The author states at the beginning of the second 
volume, that he began it on Sunday, 2nd Dhu'l-hijjah, 
701, at Balbec, and he adds m the postscript (fol. 33 li;. 
•J\ Aj <dll ujy Arl ^j>, ^y* IfrJ^ ;_s^^ t-^), that 
ho continued his work at Damascus, where he arrived 
from Balbec on Sunday, 20th Eabl' I., 702, and com- 
pleted it on Sunday, 3rd Kabl' II. of the same year. 
At the end is written the epilogue of Ibn EhaUikan, to 



which the author added, in a second postscript, a short 

memoir of his father and an account of his own work. 

This rough copy is written in a hurried hand, without 

diacritical points, and is often difficult to read. 

On the title-page are the signatures of seroral recent owners and 
readers. One of these, 'Abd al-rahmdn Ijtalabi, whose seal is also 
added, wrote the title to the first volume.

Biographies of Shafi'l Divines, by Jamal AL-DiN Abu 
Muhammad 'Abd al-kahim b. al-Hasan b. 'AH' Ku- 
rashl Umawl Isna'l Shafi'l (d. A.n. 772), who finished 
the first copy on 21st Shawwal, 769, after he had 
begun his work already a little before a.h. 750. Cf. 
H. Kh. iv. 143. 

A circumstantial account of the work is given in 
the author's preface, which begins : u:..w«^ <d! X*^\

(Ujj^lj ,e*J};i^ j.j-i> (j Cjli^l , i.e. a commentary on 
the two standard works on the Shafl'itc Law, that he 
undertook his present task. He collected his materials 
from numerous kindred works, and especially from the 
TabaMi of Ibn al-Salah (d. a.h. 643) and Tifllsl ('Omar 
b. Bundar, d. a.h. 672). The latter he incorporated 
wholly in his own work. Although he also terms it 
TahaMt, it is not arranged chronologically (or rather 
according to the generations, jLicil! ^Xs-), but alpha- 
betically, each man being placed under the initial of 
the name by which he is commonly known — (fol. 3)

Each chapter (or letter) is divided into two sections 
as stated by H. Kh., and the single articles of each 
section foUow in chronological order, according to 
the dates of death. The last chapter (^) concludes 
with a succession of Yamanls, who are mentioned in 
this place, according to the initial of their native 
country, although their common names are difierent. 
The last of them is Yami'i.

A succession of paragraphs ((J*fli) relating to the

The name of the author is not mentioned. In his 
preface he alludes to the old rivalry between Cairo and 
Damascus, and represents himself as belonging, as it 
were, to both places, being a native of a country near 
to both of them. The work seems to be the same as 
Cod. Goth. 346, MoUer. If so, the author would be 
Ahmad b. Zuhaikah, a native of Makkah.

Personal narrative of the travels of IlyIs b. Hanna 
Matjsili, a Chaldsean priest, in various parts of western 
Europe, and in Peru (Sjj^^-Jl) and Mexico (LiiXj^.i), 
during a.d. 1668-1683; followed by a historical ac- 
count of Peru, which was compiled during a prolonged 
stay in that country. 

After the prologue (i»-LjJ), which begins: iXksM

The author set out from Baghdad, a.d. 1668, on a 
pilgrimage to Jerusalem, and afterwards went to 
Europe by Iskenderun and Venice. In a.d. 1675 he 
started for South America, whence he returned to 
Spain in 1683. He appears to have been stUl resident 
in Spain when he completed the present work. 

The account of Peru (foil. 61 sqq.) refers to the con- 
quest and the early history of that country, and was 
compiled from Spanish books. It is divided into seven- 
teen sections ( J^), The last of these contains a report 
presented by Padre Francisco Eomero {)jr*Jj)> of the 
order of St. Augustine, a missionary in the West Indies, 
to Charles II., King of Spain, a.d. 1693. 

"Well written. This copy ' was transcribed in the 
East, and is dated 20th Kanun I., 1751. The original 
copy was finished at Puerto de Santa Maria in Spain,

An abridgment of an old -work on Geography, of 
■which two other copies are mentioned in Cat. Bibl. 
Spronger. 2, and Cat. Mus. Brit. 182 (cf. Add. et Corr. 
772). As is already stated there, the original work 
was written near the end of the reign of the KhaUf al- 
Mu'tadid billah (d. a.h. 289) ; and Sprenger's assertion, 
that we have here an abstract of the (j^jJJl 4_>li$ 
of Ibn Ai-EAKin Hamadani (Abu Bakr Ahmad b. 
Muhammad b. Ishak, who flourished at the end of the 
third century), is especially confirmed by a comparison 
of the passages quoted from that author in Yakut's 
Dictionary. Cf. Wiistenfeld's edition, i. v, and the 
index, vi. 300 ; and also Sprenger's Post- und Eeise- 
routen des Orients, p. xvii. 

Sprenger is, however, wrong, in ascribing this 
abstract to one Shatri or Sharzi; he read ^j^]] 
or ^ylJi by mistake, instead of (Cjj-jiiii," and 
'All b. Ja'far b. Ahmad Shaizarl (from Shaizar in 
Syria) was merely the scribe, who, a.h. 431, wrote 
(t_ -,rS) the copy, from which the Cod. Sprenger. was 
taken. This appears from the colophon of the latter, 
which is given by Chwolson in a letter published in 
the Zeitschrift der Deutschen morgenl. Gesellschaft, 
xxii. 241. The present copy, too, must have been 
derived from the MS. of Shaizarl, whose name, also 
spelt Shazri, is inscribed on it as the author of the book 
(see above). No mention is made of him in the British 

1 The MS. has ^Ij (bIc).

Museum MS. There is no positive proof that this 
abridgment was made by the author himself, but it 
is very probable. 

It begins with some general aphorisms, as follows : 

.•J\ ci^^Uut f^j\ (^lUl ,_^-ac;; j^ J-ai!l Jlji JU 

These are followed by some remarks of the author con- 
cerning his present task, which are to be found in Cat. 
Mus. Brit. 182 (^'J\ ^^}c^ ^ j**^)- Sprenger and others 
have already observed that Ibn al-Faklh was more of 
a literary character, than an exact geographer. The 
plan of his work is, at least as far as the present 
abridgment goes, neither systematic nor in any way 
complete. It is, however, rich in details. After a few 
introductory chapters, on the formation of the earth 
(fol. 2), and on the seas (fol. 3), and a comparison 
between the Chinese and Indian nations, there comes 
a description of the Arabian peninsula (foil. 5».-12). 
Next follow two literary digressions, viz. (fol. 12) 

•^^ {J^ dj^'^S dj^^ (J' '^^ "-^^ ti mVi aiid 
(fol. 14) i—)\js.1>\j hjii\ _j>^ J. After these, the 
author describes (fol. 17) Egypt; (fol. 24) al-Maghrib; 

(fol. 25) the Berber country y^\ Ji\jt\ ; (fol. 28) 
Syria and Palestine ; (fol. 36, a special chapter on the 
rivalry between the people of Damascus and al-Basrah

Flugel, Ar), nor inH.Kh. 

This commentary is intended for the use of beginners. 
It gives rather short explanations of obscure words,

The commentary appears to be an abridgment of 
Tabrhi's commentary.' As in the latter, there follow 
hero three other poems, which are not unfrequently 
added to the " Seven," viz. : — 

a. Foil. 204-212. The Kasldah in <— > of 'Abid 
B. al-Abkas, which, as is also stated here, stands 
occasionally in the place of the Mu'allakah of al- 
Harith. It is preceded by a historical introduction 
on the authority of Muhammad b. 'Amr Shaibani, 
which is also found in Tabrizl.' 

b. Foil. 213-222. The Kasldah in J of al-Na- 
BiOHAH, or no. 1 of the Dlwan, as edited by H. Deren- 
bourg (Paris, 1869). It was published by De Sacy 
in his Chrestomathie Arabe, vol. ii. 

c. Foil. 224-237. The Kajidah in J of al-A'sha.

m. Foil. 238-270. A Commentary on the Kasldah 
j^s^\ L>^1, of al-Husain b. 'All Tughrd'i (d. about 
A.H. 514). This is an abridgment (,^^,a-i'^) of the 
commentary of Jamal al-din Muhammad b. Musa 
Damiri (d. a.h. 808). The author gives his name at 
the end as Muhammad b. al-Khalil K^aruni, of 
al-Ahsa. 

rV. Foil. 270-284. The celebrated Kasidah L^i!

II. Foil. 78-84. A Commentary on Ka'b b. Zuhair'i 
Kasldah in praise of Muhammad, jIjuj l::^Ij . 

This commentary is different from that published 
by Lette and Freytag. Tabrizl (d. a.h. 502) is quoted 
at the beginning of the introduction, on the authority 



of his pupil Jawaliki (d. 



539): :^_iS\ U^l 



yjj s?-\ ^^ '<-j>jji^ jy-^ ^' jks-jUt J^l!! *Ulil 

Ji <CfU^ ^Uj <)JJ1 isjj j.^\ ^^ J>-*jr«. The 
relation of Tabriz! is founded on the following Jsndd : 

Abu Muhammad Ibn al-Hasan Jauharl (d. a.h. 454), 

Abu 'Omar Muhammad b. al-'Abb^s b. Zakartya b. 
Haiyawaih (date, 1st Safar, 327), 

al-'Abbas b. Zakarlya b. Haiyawaih, 

'AbdaUah b. 'Amr, 

Ibrahim b. al-Mundhir, 

al-Hajjaj Muzanl,' son of al-Eaklbah b. 'Abd al- 
rahman b. Ka'b, and great-grandson of the poet. 

This commentary, therefore, may be the work of 
Tabrizl, or rather an abridgment of it. Cf. Cat. Mus. 
Brit. 316, BCXLV., no. lii. 

Closely written in Nasta'Uk ; the first ten foil, by a

II. Foil. 7-12. A short Commentary on an erotic 
Kasidah, called lU-sJl , or the Orphan ; by 'Abd al- 
HiLKK B. 'Abd al-latif Zubairi. 

The Kasidah begins : 

_^^\ ^\^\ <_iU.^U ^^ ^^\^ % %Jo c)\j\ 

It is stated at the beginning of the commentary, 
that the poem was called the Orphan, because the 
author of it was not known. It is also mentioned there 
that two verses of it are quoted in Hariri's preface 
to his Makdmdt. Now in the commentaiy on that 
work,' these verses are attributed to 'Adi b. al-Eika', 
'Amill, a contemporary of Jarir,^ and to the same 
the whole Kasidah is ascribed in a note at the end of 
this MS. But the two verses given in the said com- 
mentary as those immediately preceding the quotation 
do not agree with the present text. It is probable, 
therefore, that the Kasidah is supposititious, and only 
framed on the metre and rhyme of the old verses 
found in Hariri, which have been put at the end of 
the composition. 

III. Foil. 16-136. ZAtrzANi's Commentary on the 
Mu'allakdt, with glosses. 

The Mu'allahah of 'Amr stands here after that 
of Antarah. Some of the verses have been omitted ; 
hence arose some confusion in the text (fol. 125). 

On the few leaves which precede this piece are 
added a list of contents and various notes.

general interpretation (ci^-Jt ^.jt^).

wont to quote and compare the oldest authorities, such 
as Khalll, Sibawaih, Ahfash, Mazinl, and the schools 
of al-Basrah and al-Kufah in general. Classical poetry 
is also frequently cited and explained in his work. 
The title of it is not to be found, nor can anything 
be learnt from the preface, the beginning of which is, 
moreover, mutilated. The first words are : ^j!iL*!lj . . .
