PREFACE. 

It was stated in Volume I of the " Catalogue Raisonne of the 
Buhar Library" [Calcutla, 1921) that the cataloguing of the Arabic 
manuscripts had been begun in 1905 to 1906 by Maulavi Abul KJiair 
Muhammad Yusuf , and that what Shams-ul- Ulama' Dr. Hidayat Husain 
was appointed to do was to T-evise and complete what the other 
had begun. A comparison of Maulavi Abul Khair Muhammad Yusuf's 
and Shams-ul-'Ulama' Dr. Hidayat Husain's notices has shown that 
the Shams-ul-'Ulama' had much more to do than revise and complete 
his brother-scholar's work : he had to write a new catalogue. I have 
tlierefore omitted Maulavi Abul Kliair Muhammad Yusuf's name fr6m 
the title-page. 

The manuscripts deserving of special mention on account of their 
excellence in calligraphy and illumination are : — Man La Yahduruhu'l 
Fakih (No. 50), Dala'il al-Kliairat (No. 60), Munajat Amir al-Mu'minin 
(No. 64), as-Sahifat al-Kamila (Nos. 65, 66 and 68), al-Ikbal bi Salih 
al-A'mal (No. 75), al-Asfar al-Arba'a (No. 331), Kalimat Maknuna 
(No. 409), and Diwan 'Ah (No. 426). 

From the point of view of uniqueness or rarity the following 
manuscripts, among others, deserve special mention : — Sharh Mishkat 
al-Masabih (No. 35), Kurb al-Isnad (No. 49), Kifayat al-Athar (No. 51), 
Riyacl as-Salikin (No. 72), at Ta'hkat 'ala'l Hashiya al-Kliidrlya 
(No. 91), Nahj al-Mustar.shidIn (No. 94), Anwar al-Malakut (No. 95), 
at-Takdisat (No. 102), Miftah as-Sara'ir (No. 128), Sharh Zubdat 
al-UsGl (No. 146). Kanz al-Fawa'id (No. 181), Madarik al-Ahkam 
(No." 183). al-Iktifa' fl Fadl al-Araba'at al-Kliulafa' (No. 200), Is'af 
Ikhwan as-Safa' (No. 201), al-'Umda (No. 203), Kitab al-Yakin 
(No. 204) al'-Kashkiil fi_ ma Jara 'Ala Al ar-Rasul (No. 205), Miftah 
an-Naja' fl Manakib Al al-'Aba' (No. 208). Manakib Ahl Bait 
(No. 210), Tarajini al-HufTaz (Nos. 252-253), Tabakat al-Hanbahya 
(No. 265), Zahr ar-Rivad (No. 269), al-Hashiya 'Ala Hashiyat 
al-Kliata'i (No. 401). Rasa'il Ibn al-'Amid (No. 412) and I'lam 
Nahj ai-Balaglia (No. 413, II). 

The Arabic collection cannot boast of possessing any MS. of an 
early age, but the following works may be of some interest for the 
students of Arabic palaeography : —

author gives a short account of the " Seven Readers " of the text 
of the Kur'an and some of their pupils.

AL-KASHSHAF 'AN HAKA'IK AT-TANZIL. 

A well-known commentary on the Kur'an, by J^4,.sv/<> ^.J^'il) yj 

^.yivii^vll j^ j^ Abu'l Kasim Mahmiid bin 'Umar az-Zamakh- 

shari. He was born at Zamaklishar in Ivliawarizm in A.H. 467, 
A.D. 1074. The early part of his life was spent in travelling for the 
sake of study. He made the pilgrimage to Mecca, and on account 
of his lengthy sojourn there, he obtained the surname of Jdralldh 
the neighbour of God. He died in the town of Jurjaniya in A.H. 
538, A.D. 1143. He was a Mu' tazila and his commentary is full 
of the doctrines of the sect. For his life see Ibn KhaUikan (Teheran 
edition) Vol. II., p. 197; Mir'at al-Janan, (library copy), Vol. IT., 
fol. 163; Taj at-Tarajim, p. 53; Nuzhat al-Alibba', p. 469 ; al- 
Fawa'id al-Bahiya, p. 87 ; Brockelmann, Gesch. d. x\rab. Litter. 
Vol. I., p. 289. 
Beginning : — 

This commentary is well known in the Islamic world and is 
specially famous for the light that it throws upon the grammatical, 
rhetorical and philological aspects of the Kur'an. Ibn Khallikan, 
(Teheran edition), Vol II., p. 198, says that " az-Zamaldishari 
began his preface with the words ^j^L'il ^^-^ i^ ^ ^*^l (praise 
be to God who created the Kur'an). But when his friends said to 
him, 'if you use the word /d^ (created), no orthodox Muhammadan 
will use it', he changed the word ^ji^ (created) to J-*^ which also 
according to Mu'tazila doctrines, means created, though this word 
has different significations to the orthodox people. Later on this 
word J-fL^ was replaced by orthodox people to J)i' revealed.' ' 
This work was completed in Rabi' II, A.H. 528, A.D. 1134. See 
Haji Khalifa, Vol. V., p. 179.

ANWAR AT-TANZIL WA ASRAR AT-TA'VIL. 

A most popular commentary on the Kur'an by AUIj.xC|^>j>iI^^li 

^^LojlxII ao.s^ ^j j^ ^i Nasir ad-Din 'Abdallah bin 'Umar bin 

Muhammad al-Baidavi. He was born at Baida, a little town in 
Ears. His father, 'Umar bin Muhammad, was a grand Kadi of that 
orovince. He himself held the OfHce of Kadi of Shiraz for a 



considerable time. It is regrettable and surprising that there should 
be so great an uncertainty as regards the date of al-Baidavi's 
death, whose name is uni\rersally familiar to all students of Arabic 
literature. According to Taj al-'Urus, Vol. V., p. 11, and Iktifa' 
al-Kunu', p. 114, he died in A.K. 691, A.D. 1291; Mir'at al- 
Janan (library copy). Vol. II., fol. 3n6, and Habib as-Siyar, Vol. 
Ill,, juz' I, p. 77, place the date one year later, i.e. A.H. 692, 
A.D. 1292; TarJidi-i-Guzida (Gibb Memorial edition), p, 118 calls 
him Nasir ad-Din Abii Sa'd (according to Haji Kliallfa, Vol, T,, p. 
469, Abu Sa'id) 'Abdallah bin Muhammad bin 'Ali al-BaidavI; 
and gives A.H. 605, A.D. 1208, as the date of his death, Miftah- 
as-Sa'ada, Vol, I,, p. 436 mentioned two dates — A.H, 641, A.D. 
1243, and A.H. 685, A.D. 1286; as-Suyuti, in Bughyat al-Wu'at, 
p. 286, points to A.H. 685, A.D. 1286^, and A.H. 691, A.D. 1291. 
But in my opinion his death took place in A.H. 685, A.D. 1286, 
as this date is given by Miftah as-Sa'ada (Vol. I., p. 436) on the 
authority of as-Salah as-Safadi (d. A.H, 764, A,D. 1362) who 
again bases the authenticity of this date, A.H, 685, A.D. 1286, 
on the authority of Najm ad-Din Sa'id ad Dehli, nearest in 
point of time to al-Baidavi. See also Nuzhat al-Jalis, Vol. 11., p, 
88; Subki, Tabakat al-Kubra, Vol. V,, p, 59; Rawdat al-Jannat, 
p. 685 ; Elliot History of India, Vol, II., p. 252 ; Brockelmann, 
Gesch. d. Arab. Litter, Vol. I., p. 416; Rieu, Persian Cat., Vol. II., 
p. 823; and Casiri, Eacuria Cat., No. 1296. 
. Beginning: — 

This commentary is chiefly based on az-Zamakhshari's al- 
Kashshaf, but in it the author has added much matters in refuta- 
tion of Mu'tazilite doctrines, and other matters drawn from other 
sources. It is the favourite commentarv of the Sunnis in the east.

' Abd al-Hakim bin Shams ad-Din as-Siyalkuti. He was born and 
brought up at Siyaikut in the Punjab, He was the pupil of 
Mawlana Kamal ad-Din al-Kashmiri and was regarded by his 
contemporaries as a most sound and perfect scholar. During the 
time of the Emperor Jahangir (A.H. 1014-1037, A.D. 1605-1628) 
he was teaching students in his native land, but in the Emperor 
Shah Jahan's reign (A.H. 1037-1069, A.D. 1628-1659) became to 
Dehli. The Emperor received him with marked consideration 
and favour, bestowed on him several villages as JaHglr and or- 
dered him to teach students and compose books. He died on the 
18th Rabi' I. A.H. 1067, A.D. 1656. Azad Bilgirami in Subhat

mad bin 'Umar al-Khafail al-Misrl. He first studied under his 
uncle, Abu Bakr ash-Shanawanl and then became a pupil of Shaikli 
al-Islim Muhammad ar-Ramli and other eminent 'Ulama of his 
time. After finishing his studies, he proceeded with his parents on 
a pilgrimage to M ecca. From there he came to Constantinople and 
soon became a Kadi in Romailia. Sultan Murad being convinced 
of his ability, appointed him a Kadi of Salonica. Later on he 
was given the Kadiship of Egypt, but owing to some reason or 
other he was dismissed from his post. He then undertook a 
journey to Constantinople. First he went to Damascus and then 
to Aleppo and from there he arrived at Constantinople. Yaha bin 
Zakariya, the chief 77iujtl of the Capital, refused to receive him, 
but later on he became favourably disposed towards him and al- 
Khafaji was again given the Kadiship of Egypt. He died on the 
12th Ramadan, A.H. 1069, 23rd May, A.D. 1658. For details

of Surat al-Hamd by ^ykly^-s^]] *-x:^JI j>>.^ ^i s^ls^ )L< MuUa 

Hamid bin *Abd ar-Rahim al-Jawnpurl. He was an emment scho- 
lar of Jawnpur. As he could not prosper in his native land, he 
came to Dehli where he was included by Shah 'Alam (A.H. 1173 
-1202, A.D. 1759-1788) among the learned men of his court. 
Later on he became a tutor of the prince i\.bu Nasr Mu'In ad-Dln 
Muhammad (Akbar II, A.H. 1221-1253, A. D. 1806-1837). In the 
last part of his life, he returned to his native place where he died. 
See Taj alii Nur, p. 93. 
Beginning : — 

The author says in the preface that during his lectures on- 
al-Baidavi, he found that many commentators of it had not paid 
sufficient attention to some abstruse passages of the book and had 
remained very far from grasping the real sense of them. Conse- 
quently he had been led to prepare a supercommentary of al- 
Baidavi in oider to explain the more subtle and difficult points of 
the said work. 

Half of fol. 10a and the whole of fol. 106 are blank. The 
last «ix foil, have been replaced, evidently not long ago.

Office, No. 114, says, " It is ascribed to the celebrated Ghazali (d 
A.H. 505)." On fol. 135« the author mentions as his own work 
the Kitab al-Ahya' (admitted on all hands to be a work of al- 
Ghazali) ; so there can be no doubt that the book under notice 
was, indeed, written by that al-Ghazali. His full name was as^.^^ 

^1^1 ^«.:sv^ ^.: j..<^:sv^ ^^l::^ ^jl ^^j^i' ^^i\ ^iU))! Hujjat al-Islam 

Zain ad-Din Aba Hamid Muhammad bin Muhammad al-Gliazali. 
He was born in AH. 450, AD. 1059 (not in A.H. 441, A.D. 
1049 as given by Huart in his History of Arabic Litera- 
ture, p. 265) at Ghazala, a dependency of Tus in Ivliurasan. 
After studying in his native land, he went to Jurjan for further 
studies and then proceeded to Naisabur where he sat at the feet of 
the Imam al-Haramain Abu'l Ma'ali 'Abd al Malik alJuwaini, 
died, A.H. 478; A.D. 1085 (for his life see De Slane, Ibn Khallikan, 
Vol. II., p. 120), under whose instruction he became a profound 
scholar. After the death of his master he attached himself to the 
famous Vizir Nizam al-Mulk (for his life see De Slane, Ibn 
I-Lhallikan, Vol. I., p. 413) who in A.H. 484, A.D. 1091 (not in A.H. 
446, A.D. 1054 as written by Huart, p. 265) appointed him as the 
Principal of the Nizamiya College at Bagdad. But in the month 
of Dlm'l Ka'da, A.H. 488, November, A.D. 1095, he gave up all 
the occupations in which he had been hitherto engaged and gave 
himself up to asceticism and dervishhood. He then undertook 
the pilgrimage to Mecca and, on his return, proceeded to Syria 
and stopped for sometime at Damascus. He then set out for 
Jerusalem, where he applied himself with ardour to the practices 
of devotion and visited the holy monuments and venerated 
spots of that sacred ground. He next passed on to Egypt and 
remained for some time at Alexandria, and finally returned to his 
native land, where he died in A.H. 505, A D. 1111. 

The word Ghazali is also pronounced with double Z as 
Ghazzali. De Slane in the translation of Ibn Khallikan 's Bio- 
graphical Dictionary, Vol. I., p. 80 says. " Ghazzali is a derivative 
from Ghazzal (cotton spinner), formed after the system generally 
followed by the people of Khawarizm and Jurjan, who form 
Kassar (a fuller) from Kassarl; and form 'Attar (a druggist) from 
'Attarl. Some pronounce Ghazali with a single Z, deriving it from 
Ghazala, the name of a village in the dependencies of Tus ; but 
this pronunciation differs from the one in general use, though as- 
Sam'anl has adopted it in his Ansab." For his life, see Ibn 
Khallikan (Teheran edition) Vol. II., p. 37 ; Subki, at-Tabakat al-

Jalal ad-Din ' Abd ar-Rahman bin Abl Bakr bin Muham- 
mad as-Suyuti. He belonged to a Persian family who had 
been residing for three hundred years at Suyut in Upper Egypt ; 
but he himself was born at Cairo in A.H. 849, A.D. 1445. " He 
studied under renowned teachers in every branch of Islamic learn- 
ing. In A.H. 869, A.D. 1464 he v/ent on the pilgrimage to Mecca. 
On his return, through the influence of his master, 'Alam ad-Din 
Bulkini, he was appointed the senior professor of jurisprudence 
at the Shaikhuniya Madrasa at Cairo. He lost his post in A.H. 
908, A.D. 1501. On the death of Ibn Ballan, the successor 
to his professorial chair, the same appointment was again offered 
to him, but he refused it. He died in retirement on 18th 
Jumada I, A.H. 911^ 17th October^ A.D. 1505. 

as-Suyuti most probably wrote a larger number of books 
than any other Islamic writer. Brockelmann, Gesch. d. Arab. 
Litter, Vol. II., pp. 143-158 contains the names of three hundred 
and sixteen works written by as-Suyuti. Fliigel (Haji Khalifa 
Vol. VI., p. 666) has drawn up a list mentioning five hundred and 
sixty one of his works.

This commentary is narrated by Muhammad bin Ibrahim bin 
Ja'far an-Nu'mani on the authority of his father and others from 
the said Imam. an-Nu'man! was a pupil of Muhammad bin 
Ya'kub al-KulainI who died in A.H, 328^ AD. 939 or A.H. 329, 
A.D. 940 (vide Rawdat al-Jannat, p. 550) and was a recognised 
authority on Hadith. He died in Syria. For other particulars of 
his Kfe see Ami al-Amil, p. 58; Muntaha'l Makal, p. 252; Shu- 
Dhur al-Ikyan, Vol. II., fol. 17 ; and Rawdat al-Jannat, p. 555. 

Dr. Loth in his catalogue of the India Office, No. 50, states 
that Abu'l Hasan 'Ali bin Ibrahim (bin Hashim al-Kummi), 
who flourished in the fourth century, is the author of a commentary 
founded chiefly on the alleged sayings of Imams Abu Ja'far 
(Muhammad Bakir) and Abu 'Abdallah (Ja'far as-Sadik). The 
general description of the book, which is given in the said cata- 
logue, shows that the MS. under notice is identical with that of 
the India Office, and I am of opinion that the narrator of the 
commentary is Muhammad bin Ibrahim bin Ja'far an-Nu'mani 
and not 'All bin Ibrahim bin Hashim al-Kumml as supposed by 
the learned doctor. No doubt al-Kumml is also an author of a 
commentary which begins as follows : —

But his commentary is not founded on the authority of Imam 
Ja'far. See Kashf al-Hujub, p 131. The only commentary 
which is composed on the sayings of the said Imam is by an- 
Nu'manl, See Kashf al-Hujub wa'l Astar, p. 130 ; and also Bihar 
al-Anwar, Vol. I., p. 7, in which the author, Muhammad bin 
Muhammad at-TakI al-Majlisi, has included this whole commen-

He was born at Madlna in A.H. 231, AD. 845 or A.H. 232, A.D. 
846 and died, A.H. 260, A.D. 874. He is considered by the Shi'a 
theologians as the eleventh Imam. See for his life Ibn Khallikan 
(Teheran edition), Vol. I., p. 147, Mir'at al-Janan (library copy), 
Vol. I., fol 217; Tarildi Guzlda, p. 207; and Safinat al-Awliya', 
p. 29. ' 

Shl'a scholars differ in opinion about the authorship of the 
present commentary. Some authorities consider it to be fraudu- 
lently attributed to the said Imam, while trustworthy authorities, 
like Abu Ja'far Muhammad bin 'Ali bin Babuya al-Kumml, known 
as ash-Shaikh as-Saduk, d. A.H. 381, A.D. 991 (see for his life 
No. 50) and others believe it to be the work of the said Imam. 
al-Majlisi in his famous work Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. I., p. 9, has also 
supported the latter view and said that the commentary is one 
of the known and reliable books and that many learned scholars 
profusely quoted from it. See also Muntaha'l Makal, p. 288 ; Kashf 
al-Hujub Wa'l Astar, p. 129. Shah 'Abd al-'Aziz ad-Dehlavi, in

Bayan, he read for the first time az-Zamakhshari's al-Kashshaf, 
and took extracts from it, which he published as a separate book 
under the title al-Kafi ash-Shafi. Finally, at the request of his 
son Abu Nasr al-Husaini, when the author's age passed 70, he com- 
bined the contents of both his works in a more abridged form and

SHAMA'IL AN-NABI. 

A collection of Traditions concerning the person, manners and 

character of the Prophet by j^^JI ^^*^c ^ o>.a.sw^ j^^^ y) Abu 

Isa Muhammad bin 'Isa at-Tirmidhi. He was born at Bugh near 
Tirmidh, a small town on the bank of the Oxus in Central Asia. He 
studied Traditions under al-Bukhari (died, A.H. 256, A.D. 869) and 
travelled all over the Islamic countries in search of Traditions. He 
died in his native land in A.H. 279, A.D. 892. About the pronun- 
ciation of the word Tirmidh, Dr. Slane in his translation of Ibn 
Khallikan, Vol. II., pp. 602 and 679 says : '' The word Tirmidh is 
pronounced differently. Some say Turmidh, and some Tirmidh ; 
the inhabitants themselves pronounce it Tarmidh ; the pronuncia- 
tion which was long familiar to us was Tirmidh ; but persons, who 
pretend to exactness and possess information on the subject, pro- 
nounce it Turmudh. Each of these pronunciations has its partisans, 



22 

who give reasons in support of their respective opinions." See

^yys^\ yyl1i\ ^li — ''>ij^-^ Maj dad-Din Abu's Sa'adat Mubarak bin 

Abi'l Karam Muhammad bin Muhammad ash-Shaibani, known 
as Ibn al-Athir al-Jazarl. He was born in AH. 544, A.D. 1149 
in the city called Jazira bin 'Umar, situated on the Tigris, 
and hence he is surnamed al-Jazari After passing his early 
youth in that place he went to Mosul and entered into the 
service of Mujahid ad-Din Ka'imaz (for his life, ^ee De Slane, 
Vol. II J p. 510), the Lieutenant-Governor of that place, and 
was employed by him to write his correspondence. After the 
imprisonment of Ka'imaz he served 'Izz ad-Din Mas'ud bin 
Mawdud, the Lord of Mosul. After that prince's death, his 
son Nur ad-Din Arsalan Shah (see De Slane, Vol. I., p. 174) treat- 
ed Ibn al-AthIr with much consideration and showered his favours 
upon him. Ibn al-Athir served him for some time in the capacity 
of Secretary of State, ti:! a disease prevented him from further 
fulfilling the duties of his office. He gave up that appointment 
and confined himself to his house where he wrote many useful 
books. He died at Mosul on Thursday, the 29th Dhu'l Hijja, 
A.H. 606, June, A.D. 1209. 

There were three persons known by the surname of Ibn al- 



27 

Athir, These three persons were brothers and well-known authors. 
One of these was our author who was the eldest brother. The 
second brother was the well-known historian, the author of al- 
Kamil; his full name was Abu'l Hasan 'All bin Abi'l Karam 
Muhammad bin Muhammad as]i-Shaibani, known as Ibn al- Athir 
al-Jazari ; he died in gha'ban A.H. 630, May-June, A.D. 1233 (for 
his life, see De Slane, Ibn Khallikan, Vol. II.. p. 288). The third 
brother was piya' ad-Din Abu'l Fath Nasrallah bin Abi'l Karam 
Muhammad bin Muhammad ash-Shaibani, known as Ibn al-Athir 
al-Jazari, the author of al-Mathal as-Sa'ir fi Adab al-Katib 
wa'sh Sha'ir, and died on Monday, the 29th of Rabi' 11, AH. 637,

SHARK MISHKAT AL-MASABIH. 

A concise commentary of the Mishkat al-Masab!h (see No. 32) 
based chiefly on at-Taiyibi's commentary (see No. 34), by ^^ ^^ 

^la^fsvll u_iLj^^il o.j.>^ib 1 Sjjx.Jl ^c ^j j..6.sv.^ 'All bin Muhammad 

bin 'All, known as as-Saiyid ash-Sharif al-Jurjani, died, A.H, 816, 
A.D. 1413. See for his life No. 289. 'Ali al-Kari in his com- 
mentary of Mishkat al-Masabih, Vol. III., p. 1>, had denied 
the authorship of this commentary by as-Saiyid ash-Sharif al- 
Jurjani and gave two reasons in support of his statement. The 
first reason is that this commentary is not mentioned in the list 
of the Ayorks by al-Jurjani, and the second is that it is incon- 
ceivable that an author of such erudition and distinction could 
have been satisfied by merely abridging the work of at-Taiyibi 
without adding any comments of his own. These are the words 
of 'Ali al-Kari : — 

yjy^i'^ Ij^^ U^i^I ^^Ajiail j.^i' r-^aliv-J, SLxi" (LvJil^w ^« iJ>] (.xi(j , i.3(i.Jj..'0 



36 

I am personally inclined to ascribe the authorship of this com- 
mentary to al-Jurjanl, notwithstanding the two above argu- 
ments which 'All al-Kari puts forward against such an assump- 
tion, for the following reasons : — 

as-Sakhavi in his work ad-Daw al-Lami' mentions, on the 
authority of a great-grandson of al-Jurjani this book among 
his other works. Then, again, it is not correct to say that the 
book is a mere abridgement of at-Taiyibi's work. al-Jurjani has 
added remarks and comments of his own, though, indeed, their 
number is small. Further Haji Khalifa, Vol. V., p. 568, remarks 
that as-Saiyid ash-Sharif wrote a commentary on al-Mishkat. 

Though the book begins abruptly, its identity has been 
established by the fact that a passage which the Mirkat al-Mafatih 
quotes from al-Jurjani's commentary. Vol. III., p. 16, is also found 
in this book, on fol. 155&. 

The commentary without any preface begins on fol. 4& as 
follows : — 

* ^^ ^^^ C^;l ^^ 

Foil, l-ia contain a treatise by al-Jurjani on the science of 
Tradition and the technical terms used in it. This treatise 
begins : — 

In ad-Daw al Lami' where the works of al-Jurjani are enu- 
merated, it has been named as ^j:^:^^^:^!] J^-^' ^^> ^^\jJaLf Lelliu'l 

For copie? see Cairo Cat. Vol. I., p. 332. 

All the quotations from the Mishkat al-Masabih follow after 
the word <s.i^i which is written in red ink. The MS. is somewhat 
soiled by damp. Foil. 1-9 and 240-248 have been partially bord-

Cat No. 192, has given two dates, viz. A.H. 907, A.D. 1501, and 
A.H. 911, A.D. 1505, as the date of his birth. The latter date 
is given also by Brockelmann in his work Gesch. d. Arab. Litter., 
Vol. II., p. 388. He studied in Cairo and, after making several 
pilgrimages to Mecca, he at last settled there in A.H. 940, AD. 
1533. He is called mujtl of Hijdz. He died, according to an-Nur 
as-Safir (the library copy fol. 1266) in A.H. 974, A.D. 1566. But 
both Rieu (in his Arabic Suppl. Cat. p. 117, on the authority of 
Kawakib as Sa'ira) and Brockelmann (Vol. II., p. 388) fix the year 
of his death at A.H. 973, A.D. 1565; and Khulasat al-Atliar,

began to write this work in A.H. 953 (A.D. 1546) in Ummal-Kura 
(Mecca). The book consists of an introduction, two parts, and 
an epilogue. The introduction or A^j^iiJI, beginning on fol. 2a^ 
gives the definition of grievous sins. The first part or JjV ^^Wl be- 
ginning on fol. 166, treats of the " mental sins" mLU'I yUj^I. The 
second part or ^iClfl ujUM bagianing on fol. 776, deals with the

TADHKIRAT AL-MAWDU'AT. 

A treatise on Traditions falsely attributed to the Prophet, 

by ^_5-^J^' i^_^^ ^J j^^^ j^-> ^xj-sv.^ Muhammad bin Tahir bin 'All 

al-Fatani. He was born at Patan in Gujarat, A.H. 914, A.D. 
1508. After completing the course of education in his native 
land, he proceeded to Mecca for higher studies. He studied 
Traditions there with eminent scholars, such as Ibn Hajar al- 
Haitami, who died, A-H. 973, A.D. 1565 (see No. 44) and others. 
He acquired much learning from 'All bin Husam ad-Din al-Muttaki, 
who died, A.H. 975, A.D. 1567, and also became one of his devot- 
ed disciples in the Kadiri and Shadhili orders. After his return 
to his native land, he tried his utmost to spread learning and to 
uproot the doctrines of Muhammad al- Jawnpuri who had claimed 
to be the Mihdl of his time. These doctrines much prevailed 
amongst the Buhras, a tribe of Gujrat to which Muhammad bin 
Tahir belonged. 

Li A.H. 980, A.D. 1572, Akbar (A.H. 9G3-1014, A.D. 1556- 
1605) set out to conquer Gujarat. After its conquest he conferred 
honour on Muhammad Tahir by tying with his own hand the turban 
on his head, as, he thought, it was incumbent on him (Akbar) to 
spread the true principles of Islam. When Kjian A'zam 'Aziz 
Muhammad Kukaltash was appointed governor of Gujarat he 
helped Muhammad Tahir in uprooting the new doctrines of the said 
Mibdi. But when 'Abd ar-Rahim Klian Khanan came as gover- 
nor after the said Khan 'Azam, Muhammad Tahir suffered much 
trouble at the hands of the followers of the Mihdi, and proceeded 
to the Court of Akbar in Akbarabad for redress. On his way 
he was murdered at Ujjain by some followers of the Mihdi in A.H.

986, A.D. 1578. He is the author of many books. The word

Beginning : — 

The author says in the preface that 'Abd ar-Rahman bin 'All 
called Ibn alJauzI, died, AH. 59 7, A.D. 1 200, had written a book 
on this subject; but as the latter had included many authentic 
Traditions in the category of forged ones, he compiled the present 
book from reliable sources, in order that it might be of some use 
to the students of Traditions. The book is divided into a pro- 
logue and several chapters, a list of which is prefixed at the 
beginning.

It narrates those Traditions which the author has attributed

the eldest son of al-Imam Muhammad al-Bakir (born, A.H. 57,

Muhammad bin 'All bin al-Husain bin Babuya al-Kummi as-Saduk. 
In his prime of life, A.H, 355, A.D. 966, he went from Khurasan 
to Baghdad, and many learned men of the place became his 
pupils. Malik Rukn ad-Din Dailami (A.H. 320-366, A.D. 932- 
^976) had a great regard for our author and used to treat him with 
great respect. It is said that he was the author of three hundred 
books. An-Najjashi, in his Kitab ar-Rijal, p. 276, enumerated 
193 works of this learned author. He died in Rai, A.H. 381, 
A.D. 991. For further particulars of his life, see Tusl's al-Fihrist, 
p. 304; Muntaha'l Makal, p. 282; Ami al-Amil, p. 65; Najjashi,

This work is one of the four Canonical Books (al-Kutub al- 
Arba'a) which are held in the highest veneration by the Shl'a 
sect. The other three books are' (I) al-Kafi fi 'Ilm ad-Din by 
Abu Ja'far Muhammad bin Ya'kub al-Kulaini, died, A.H. 328, 
A.D. 939, or AH. 329, A.D. ' 940 ; (2) al-Istibsar; and (3) 
Tahdhib al-Ahkam, both by abu Ja'far Muhammad bin al-Hasan 
bin 'Ali at-Tusi, died, A.H. 458, A.D. 1065 or A.H. 460, A.D. 1067. 
See for his life No. 52. 

It is divided into four parts which are bound together. The 
first part begins on fol. 2a and deals with ablution and prayer. -The 
second part begins on fol. 2116 and treats of legal alms, fasting 
and pilgrimage. The third and fourth parts treat of civil and 



52 

criminal laws. The third part begins on fol. 3256 and the fourth 
part begins on fol. 4296. The number of Traditions which this 
work contains is 5963. See Kashf al-Hujub, p. 563. 

For copies see Berlin Cat. Nos. 4782-3 ; Petersburg Cat. No. 
250; Paris Cat. No. 1108; Br. Mus. Cat., p. 415; India Office 
Cat. No. 289; Bodl. Cat. Vol. IT., p. 91; and Bankipur Cat. 
p. 766. 

Lithographed, Lucknow, A.H. 1306-7. 

It is a splendid copy. The first fol. of each part has a 
beautiful 'Unwan, and the fourth part, beginning fol. 4296, besides 
having the usual 'Unwan on the first fol., has also another 'Unwan 
on fol. 444a. The tops of several chapters of second, third and 
fourth parts are thickly gilded. Marks of pause are in gold and 
the names of the Imams are either in gold or red letters. Vocaliz- 
ed throughout. On the margins, there are some occasional notes 
and gold and coloured lines are throughout the MS. It bears the 
seals of Sulaiman Jah and Amjad 'Ali, etc. The work ends on fol. 
51 6a and foil. 5176-535 contain a treatise by the same author on

A.D. 949. While he was young he accompanied his father to 
Baghdad. He became a great orator and debater. He is a re- 
cognised authority among the Imamites. He died in A.H. 413,

The author in the preface says that he had found a class of 
people of ordinary learning who thought that there were no reli- 
able Traditions about the eminence and superiority of the luiams, 
and consequently he composed the present work from trustworthy 
sources in order to prove their eminence. The beginning of our 
copy differs from that of Berlin Cat. in the first few words but 

after the word l\*j Ul the two copies are identical.

Kadiya, Sharh Risalat al-Wajib, and other works. According to 
Hajl Kjiallfa, Vol. I , p. 210, he died at Bukhara in about A.H. 
900, A.D. 1494. But according to Brockelmaim, Vol. II., p. 217, he 
flourished in A.H. 950, A.D. 1543. See also Berlin Cat. No. 5296.

Scholais dififer as regards the name of the transmitter of this

Harun ath Thakafi was the narrator of this book while others 
think that 'Umair's father al-Mutawakkil bin Harun narrated it. 
For a full discussion, see Mantaha'l Makal, p. 251. See also 
Tusi's al-Fihrist, p. 262, and Kashf al-Hujub, p. 367. This vvork 
is also designated a.s-Sahifat as-Sajjadiya, because as-Sajjad was

A commentary- on al-Imam Zain al-'Abidin's famous work on 
pravers called as-Sahlfat al-Kamila (see No. 65) by ,.> Ic ,.<j».JI ^s.-s 



Sadr ad-Din ^Ali bin Ahmad bin Muhammad Ma'sum al-Husainl 
ash-Shirazi, known as as-Saiyid 'All Khan a!-Madani. He was 
born on the 15th Jumada I, A. H. 1052 (A.D. 1642) in Madina. 
He received his early education from the learned men of Mecca and 
Madina. In A.H. 1066, A.D. 1655, he left Mecca for Golconda, 
the Deccan (India) to meet his father, who having married the 
daughter of 'Abdallah Kutub Sliah (A.H. 1020-1083 A.D. 1611- 
1672), the ruler of the Deccan, had settled there at that time. He 
arrived at Golconda on Friday the 22nd, Rabr I, A.H. 106S, 
A.D. 1657. After the death of Kutub Sliah, when Sultan Abfrl 
Hasan (A.H. 1085-1098, A.D. 1672-1687) succeeded him, the 
family of as Saiyid 'Ail Khan was maltreated by the new Sultan. 
Accordingly he fled to Aurangzlb (A.H. 1069-11 IS, A.D. 1659- 
1707) who Avas then engaged in the conquest of the Deccan and 
was then at Burhanpiir. Aurangzlb received him with honour and 
conferred upon him the niansab (i.e. rank) of the command of 
1,500 men. When Aurangzlb proceeded to Aurangabad, he was 
accompanied by as-Sayid 'All Khan, and the latter was left in 
charge of the place when Aurangzib went to Ahmadnagar. Subse- 
quently Aurangzlb placed him in charge of the famous Fort of 
Berar, named Mahur, and he was made dlwdn of Burhanpur 
thereafter. After some time he took leave of Aurangzib and pro- 
ceeded with his whole family on pilgrimage to Mecca and Madina, 
whence he also proceeded on a visit to the holy places of Baghdad, 
Karbala, Najaf, Tus, etc. Afterwards he went to Isphahan, and 
met Sultan Husain Safavi ^A.H. 1105-1135, A.D. 1694-1722), but 
as he felt that he was not duly received and respected by the 
Sultan he went to Shiraz, where he nassed the remainder of his 
life in teaching pupils a? a professor of the Madrasa Mansurlya. 
He died in A^H. 1117, A.D. 1705, or AH. 1120, A.D." 1708. 
and not in A.H. 1104, A.D, 1692, as given by Brockelmann, Vol. 
II., p. 421, as the present work, according to Kashf al-Hujub, p. 
300, was completed in A.H. 1106, A.D. 1694. He is the author 
of many works. Some of them are Anwar ar-RahV jl Amca' aJ- 
BadV (a work on Arabic rhetoric, composed in A.H. 1095), Siddjat 
al-'A-sr a literary history of his contemporary writers), Sharli cd-

cular day of the year only and not more than once in a year. 
The colophon indicates that at first the author divided the book 
into two parts. The first part contained the religious observances 
for the months of Dhu'l K'ada and Dhu'lHijja, and the second 
part included the ceremonies from the month of Muharram up to 
the month of Sha'ban. Subsequently the author changed the 
order. In the first part (foil. 1-355) he wrote the observances 
for ?*ruharram till Ramadan, and in the second part (fol. 356-524) 
from Shawwal up to the end of Dhu'l Hijia. See Kashf al-Hujub, 
p. 55. 

A list of all the chapters is given on foil. 26-8a. The ink of 
the first page is much faded. Fol. 156 and a portion of fol. 356a

KUNUZ AL-JAWAHIR. 

A work on scholastic theology preceded by a discourse on 
medical science. The name of the author is not mentioned in the 
book itself or its preface. On the title-page, some one has named 
the book Kunuz al-Jawahir and Kunuz as Sihha, and has given 
Fakhr ad-Din ar-RazI as the name of the author. Fakhr ad-Din ar- 
RazI was a well-know Q author, whose full name was j«x:sv.^ ^j^xir^ivi 
•JJI WO.C ^ Fakhr ad-Din Muhammad bin 'Umar ar-Razi, and who 

died, A.H. 606, AD. 1209. See for his life No. 317. 

But from the perusal of the following passages of fol. 192a, it 
appears that the author flourished during the reign of the Caliph 
Muktafibillah (A.H. 530-555, A.D. 1136-1160):—

KITAB AL-'ULUV. 

A treatise about the locality of God on 'Arsh. The name of 
the author is not mentioned in the text. On the title page, under 
the name of the work {'Arsh al-'Ula), the author's name is given as 
adh-I)hahab]. But a careful reading of the book itself shows that 
it was not composed by adh-DhahabI, as on fol. 127a 'the author 

of the treatise says : — 

al-Khatib in his history and adh-Dhahabi and others have praised 
him—." 

According to Haji Klialifa, Vol. V., p. 115, three persons had 
written on the subject of the locality of God on 'Arsh. One of 
them was Ibn abi Shaiba Muhammad bin 'Uthman, died, c. A.H. 
235, A.D. 849. The second was Ibn Taimiya, died, A.H. 728, A.D. 
1328 ; and the third was adh Dhahabi, died, A.H. 748, A.D. 1348. 
As adh-Dhahabi, is quoted as an authority in the body of the text, 
as mentioned above, it is evident that the book under consideration 
is a composition of later date. The name of the author could not 
be traced, but the following passage on fol. 104a: — 

shows that the writer of the book was a follower of al-Imam 
Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Hanbal, died, A.H. 241, A.D. 855.

The MS. after praising God and invoking His blessings on the 
Prophet, his descendants and companions, abruptly passes to the 
subject matter, i.e. the Localisation of God on the 'Arsh, without 
a preliminary discourse.

The author says in the preface that in A.H. 839, A.D. 1435 
when he arrived at the Zainiya Madrasa at Hilla, a friend (the 
space for writing his name is blank) showed him a treatise by 
Yusuf bin al-Makhzum al-Mansuri, in which the excellence and 
leadership of the descendants of the Prophet were refuted. The 
friend requested him to write a refutation of this work, and in 
compliance with his request the author wrote the present treatise. 
The quotations from the work of Yusuf begin with the word JCil, 
and the refutations commence with the word ^'i — both these words 
are in red ink. The author addresses Yusuf bin al-Makhzum in 
very contemptuous terms, such as ^Isvi lyljl' I j ^(.^1 ;y:i" J^ or

from Caliph Abu Bakr. He died in A.H. 597, A.D. 1200. He is

SUNAN AL-HUDA FT MUTABAAT AL-MUSTAFA. 

A work on religious duties and observances, laying special 
stress on following the customs and manners of the Prophet, 

^ i»_5 J \_J, \_5 W^ > C/ ■ C/' ■^—5 ■ 

' Abd an-Nabi bin Ahmad bin 'Abd al-Kuddus al-Hanafi an- 
Nu'mani al-Ganguhi. He visited Mecca and ^Madlna several times, 
and there studied the Traditions of the Prophet. He held the 
Offiice of Sadr as-Sudur in the court of the Emperor Akbar (A.H. 
963-1014; 1556-1605). He is said to have been arbitrary^ but 
liberal. Blochmann in his translation of A'ln-i- Akbari, p. 546, 
regarding the date of the death of this author, says " Badaoni 
places his death in A.H. 991, (A.D. 1583), the Mirat in A.H. 992, 
(A.p. 1584)." For details see Bada'tini, Vol. III., p. 79; Mir'at 
al-Alam, No. 11, fol. 2626; Tarb al-Amathil, p. 245; and Darbar 
Akbari, pp. 320-328.

TARJUMA MAJMA' AL-BAHRAIN. 

An Arabic translation of the famous work of Dara Shikuh, 
called Majma' al-Bahrain, which aimed at reconciling the Hindu 
doctrine of jog with that of the Sufis, by ^^a.\ ^.-ixil ^i JLe tX.»..3:v^ 

^-t.-^a.^JI Muhammad Salih bin ash-Shaikh Ahmad al-Misri. Taking 

in view the date of composition of the original work, which is A.H. 
1065, A.D. 1654, and the date A.H. 1185, A.D. 1771, which is 
written in fol. 236 as the date of transcript of a prayer, it is 
evident that the work must have been composed between those 
dates.

are cited in the book.' On the margin are written in red ink the 
equivalent terms of Hindu phraseology. The top of fol 20a bears 
the name of a previous owner of the book. The work concludes

AL-MANKHUL FI'L USUL. 

A work on the principles of jurisprudence according to the 
Shafi'i school . This work, in Ibn Khallikan Vol. II., p. 37, has 
been attributed to j.*^v^ ^^j s^o.^^ >y^L^ y) ^sJ] k ^iD'l Ls^^ 
^^Ij^il Hujjat al-Islam Zain ad-Din Abu Hamid Muhammad bin 
Muhammad al-Ghazali, died, A.H. 505, A.D. 1111 (for his life see 
No. 10 ). But in my opinion the famous al-Ghazali is not the 
author of it, for Ibn Hajar al-Haitami, in his work al-Khairat al- 
Hisan fi Manakib an-Nu'man, p. 4, says : 

/ tJyf J] ) ^^\SJ] <Uc ^j U 4JjI S.^s^j isux^ .;l -;j>.4A^«^'I l-^h'] J>.s^j] ^

From this it is evident that the work is not the composition 
of al-Ghazali. A certain Mahmud al-Ghazali, a Mu'tazalite, wrote 
it. The author of Muntaha'l Kalam supports this, for he says 
(p. 22):- 

,^l;l L:>-^jki 8jj.i:.^j ^LaIwI J.itl ^ (Lsxili^ L-i^'j^ (*''^' "^y^ i ^:>~w i<-''y'^

known as Bahr al-'Ulum. He was born at Lucknow and was educa- 
ted by his father. At the age of seventeen he received from his 
father a Sanad of competency. He began to deliver lectures and 
compose books. Unfortunately an event happened which forced 
him to quit Lucknow. From there he went to 8hahjahanpur. He 
next went to Rampur IState, where he remained for nearly five 
years. But the rush of students to him was so great that, the 
Nawwab was unable to meet their demands. Bahr al-'Ulum, 
being dissatisfied with the Nawwab, left the place. At the request 
of Munshi Sadr ad- Din, the ancestor of the presenter of the Buhar 
Library to the Govt, of India, he came to Buhar, a village in 
Burdwan, Bengal, and not improbably the Buhar Library was 
founded by him. From Buhar he went to Madras, where he died 
on the 12th Rajab, A.H. 1235, A.D. 1819. In Southern India he 
is known as Malik al-'Uldmd', and in Northern India as Bahr al' 
'Ulmn. See for his life Journal of Nadwa, April and June, 1907 ;

subsequently with «^ ^Ii! ^^'s or tj^ ^^^ applied to a deceased

Burhan al-A'imma Husam ad-Din Abu Muhammad 'Umar bin 



175 

Abd al'Aziz as-Sadr ash-8hahid al-Bukharl. He was born in 
A.H. 483, A.D. 1090; studied jurisprudence with his father, and 
surpassed all the scholars of his time at Khurasan. From there 
he went to Transoxians, and was much respected by the Sultan 
and others. He fell into the hands of the Turks, when they took 
Sultan Sanjar prisoner, and was killed at Samarkand in A.H. 536, 
A.D. 11 41. His dead body was removed to Bukhara. He is recog- 
nised as one of the most reliable authorities on jurisprudence 
according to the Hanafi school. See Taj al-Tarajim, p. 34 ; al- 
Fawa'id al-Bahiya, p. 60- al-Kamil, Vol. XI., p. 57 ; Fliigel, Die

This book is one of the most reliable works on jurisprudence 
according to the Hanafi school. Haji Khalifa, Vol. III., p. 165, 

says j-Ja-« j.^uc^e ^^Ui" yb i.e. " It is a famous, reliable book " and 
al-Fawa'id al-Bahiya, p. 37, says sSf^< , ^Li*J] j.'ss yjiju^ ^ixi ^.ifc 
^t^ijAJl jy'xc "it is a reliable work to scholars and a trustwoithy one 
to jurists." The author first wrote two other books on jurispru- 
dence, namely KJiizdnat al-Wdki'dtabnd A^isdb al-Faklh. Then on 
the requests of his friends he wrote the present book in a concise 
form, and hence it was named KJiuldsa. The author at the begin- 
ning of each section has given a list of contents for the help of 
those engaged in giving Fatwd.

Lithographed, Lucknow. 

The beginning of our copy differs from that of India Office 
Cat. No. 205. A list of contents is annexed at the beginning. 
There is a beautiful ' Umvdn, and the first two pages are decorated. 
Gold and coloured lines are throughout on the margin. Up to fol. 
18 glosses are found in the margin. The borders throughout are 
changed to different paper. The latter part of the MS. has been 
damaged by insects and by the pasting of paper over the worm- 
eaten places. Headings of chapters in red ink. vStained with 
damp. The last fol. contains a note, which indicates that the book 
was purchased on the 20th Dim'l Hijja, A.H. 1192, from a mer- 
chant who had come to Calcutta from Dehli. There is a seal 
above this note, but it has been defaced.

AL-FATAWAAT-TATARKHANIYA. 

A work on jurisprudence according to the Hanafi school. 
According to Shams Siraj 'Afif, Tarikh Firuz Shahi, p. 392, this 
work was composed by order of Khan A'zam Tatar Khan by a 
number of 'Ulama' at Dehliin 30 volumes. ' The Khan was a Turk 
by origin, and was found in a cradle, when Ghiyath ad-Din Tugtlak 
(A.H. 720-725, A.D. 1320-1324) attacked Multan and Dibalpur. 
and brought before the king, who named him Tatar Malik (the 
King's booty). During the reign of Muhammad II bin Tugilak 
(A.H. 725-752, A.D. 1324-1351) he distinguished himself in several 
battles, and finally in the reign of Firuz Shah (A.H. 752-790, A.D. 
1351-1388) he was given the title of Tatar Khan and other very 
high honours. He made the pilgrimage, and died a few years 
after the accession of Firuz Shah. The Klian also set the 'Ulama' 
of Dehh to compile the extensive commentary on the Kur'an, 
named Tafsir Tatar Kliani after his name. See Shams Siraj , pp. 
388-394. Haji Khalifa, Vol. 11. , p. 90, sa^^s that the author of the 
work under notice is 'Alim bin 'Ala' al-Hanafi.

A commentary on Sadr ash-Sharl'at al-Asgtar ' Ubaidallah

Nukaya, by ^JtA^^il'I ^^JL,l,^iv.'i j>4^su-c ^^'' ^-*-*^ Shams ad-Din 

Muhammad al-Khurasani al-Kubistani. He came from Khurasan 
to Kuhistan, where he remained for some time. From the latter 
place he went to Bukhara, and settled there. There he attained 
reputation as a jurist of high order^ and became a Mufti of that 
place and of the entire Transoxiana. He was a pupil of Shaikh 
al-Islam al-Haravi, and died, according to some, in A.H. 962, 
A.D. 1554, and according to others about AH. ?i50, A.D. 154 3. 
Mawla Msam ad-Din had a very poor opinion of al-Kuhistani, and 
did not consider him to be a jurist of rank. According to him al- 
Kuhistani was a "broker" of books. See 'Abd al-Hai al-Lakh-

Haji Khalifa, has given two different dates for the death of 
Sadr ash-Shari'at al-Asgtar (or ath-Thani) Ubaidallah bin Mas ud 
al-Hanafi. In Vol. IL, p. 315, under the book Ta'dil al-'Ulvm, 
and Vol. VI., p. 443, under the work Wishdh fVl Maani wa'l 
Baydn, he says that Sadr ash Shari'at al-As^ar died in A.H 747 ; 
but in Vol. VI., p. 373, under the book an-Nukdya, and in the 
same Vol., p. 460, under Wikdyat ar-Rawdya, it is said that he 
died in A.H. 745. A.D. 1344. 'Ali al-Kari in his work al-Athmar 
al-Janiya, fol. 108, says that he died in the eighties of the 7th 



184 

century A.H. ajUJu*- ^ fj^^ j <-^ ^ viyU. The con'ecfc date of his 

death is A.H. 747. See Fliigel, Die Klassen pp. 277 and 324; 
Taj at-Tarajim, p. 118 and Brockelmann, Vol. II., p. 214. 
The commentary under notice is not a very reliable book on 
jurisprudence. As Radd al-Muhtar Vol. I., p. 72, says : —

AL-ASHBAH WA'N NAZA'IR. 
A work on jurisprudence according to the Hanafi school by 
^rA^\ .^svi ^U c_j^^l ^xiilyl ^^ yji'^'s^^ e/ij Zain al-'Abidin bin 
Ibrahim, known as Ibn Nujaim al-Misri. He studied with Sharf 
ad-Din al-Bulkini, and with several other jurists of high order. 
He made the pilgrimage in A.H. 953, A.D. 1546. According to 
al-Kawakib as-Sa'ira he died in A.H. 969, A.D. 1561 ; but his son 
Ahmed, in the preface to ar-Rasa'il az-Zainiya, p. 5, says that his 
father died on Wednesday the 8th Rajab in A.H. 970, A.D. 1562. 
The latter statement is corroborated by al-Hamavi in his commen- 
tary on al-Ashbah (Calcutta edition), p. 741, where it is stated 
that he died on the 8th Rajab, A.H. 970, A.D. 1562. For further

The full title of the text is Irshad al-Ghavi ila Masalik al-Havi, 
and it is an abridgement of 'Abd al-Ghaffar bin 'Abd al-KarIm al- 
Kazvlni's (d. A.H. 665, A.D. 1266) work, called al-Havi as-Sagiir. 
Ibn Hajar al-Haitami bases his commentary chiefly on the com- 
mentaries of Shams ad-Din Muhammad bin 'Abd al-Mun'im al-Jau- 
jari (d. A.H. 889, A.D. 14 84) and Muhammad bin Abi Sharif al-Muk- 
addisi (d. A.H. 930, A.D, 1523). An autograph copy of the latter 
is mentioned in Hyderabad List, Tann Fikh, No. 89. al-Haitami 
also drew many useful points in his commentary from the writings 
of Zakariya bin Muhammad al-Ansarl (d. A.H. 926, A.D. 1520). 
It was composed in Mecca, which is called Umm al-Kura in the 
book and was named Fath al-Jawad. It is in three volumes, but 
the MS. under notice is only the first volume of the work, and 
ends with the commentary on the last chapter of ^sv.,'1 i^Ui" . The 
chapters are as follows : — ^

Muwahib 'Abd al-Wahhab bin Ahmad ash-Sh'rani. He was born 
about the beginning of the 10th century Hijra, and resided at Cairo. 
He was a Sufi of high order. Haji Khalifa assigns three different 
dates to the death of as-Sha'rani. In Vol, I., p. 482, Vol. II., p. 
22, he says that he died in A.H. 960, A.D. 1552 ; in Vol. IV., p. 37. 
he gives the date as A.H. 973, A.D. 1565, and in Vol. VI., p. 285 
as A.H. 976, A.D. 1568. The correct date is A.H. 973, A.D. 1565. 
See al-K]iitat at-Tawfiklya, Vol. XIV., pp. 109-112 ; Brockelmann

RAHMAT AL-UMMA FT IIvHTILAF AL-A'IMMA. 

A work on those points of jurisprudence about which the four 
orthodox Imams differ. Regarding the author of this book, Hajl 
Khalifa, Vol. III., p. 351, says : — 

" Sadr ad-Din Abu 'Abdallah Muhammad bin 'Abd ar-Rahman 
ad-Dimishki al-Utlimani (died A.H. '870, A.D. 145G). the Chief 
Justice of the Province of Safad, is the author of this book, and 
wrote it in A.H. 780 (A.D. 1378) ; but some people think that 
Shaikh al-Islam Abu'l Hasan as-Sa'di composed it." Brockel- 
mann, Gesch. d. Arab. Litter, Vol. II., mentions this book in 
two places. On p. 91 he says that Muhammad bin 'Abd ar-Rah- 
man bin al- Husain al- Kurashi al-'Utlimam ash-Shaii I Sadr ad-Din 
is the author of the book, and wrote it in A.H. 780, A.D. 1378, 
at Safad. But on p. 97 he states that the book was composed 
by Sadr ad-Din Muhammad bin 'Abd ar-Rahman ad-Dimishki.

^LAKJI ^-.:su< ^ s^,r^] ^_j-^>* ^J^. ^^:^< Mxihauimad bin Mur- 
tada, known as Mulla Muhsin al-Kashani. At the end of the trea- 
tise, while enumerating his own compositions, the author writes : 
"I wrote this treatise, when my age was 83, in A.H. 1090," A.D. 
1679, which indicates that the author was born in A.H. 1007, 
A.D. 1598. He was a pupil of Mulla Sadra, died, A.H. 1050, 
A.D. 1640. His learning and piety induced his master to give his 
daughter in marriage to him. His poetical name, Faid, was also 
selected by his master for him. Shah 'Abbas II (A.H. 1052-1077, 
A.D. 1642-1667) had a special regard and respect for our author. 
He is the author of no less than two hundred books and treatises 
on theological subjects, besides a dlwan. Some biographers assert 
that he was much inclined to suflsm : but others say that in the 



i 



214 

last part of his life he gave up that belief, and became an orthodox 
Shi'a. Shudhur al-'Ikyan, Vol. II., fol. 354, says that he died in 
about AH. 1040, A.D. 1630; but this date must be wrong ; for 
the author himself gives the date of the work under notice as A.H. 
1090. AD. 1679. Brockelmann has fallen into confusion about 
our author. In Vol. IT., p. 200, he says that he died about A.H 
911, A.D. 1505 ; but in the same volume, p. 413, he says that he 
died in A.H. 1106, A.D. 1694. The authentic accounts say that 
he died soon aftcT A.H. 1090, A.D. 1679. See Nujum as-Sama',

From the preface it appears that he intended to write an 
extensive work on religion, based on the Kur'an, the Traditions 
of the Prophet, and the Sayings of the Imams, and to name it 

'L3>.j> ^zi.1] .K^I ^i 'i.jt^Xul\ .w3.i*^ ; but when he had finished one 

volume, other matters engaged his mind and consequently he did 
not complete the work. Afterwards he thought it best to write 
the work in a concise form, and the outcome of that is the present 
book. It is indicated in the preface that the author intended to 
finish the larger work, if Providence should help him, and to write 
it in such a manner that it would be a commentary on the 
abridged work.

Madina in A.H. 153, A.D. 770 ; but according to some m A.H. 151, 
A.D. 768. The caliph al-Mamun (A.H. 198-218, A.D. 813-833) 
gave his daughter Umm Habib in marriage to Imam in A.H. 202, 
A.D. 817. He died in A.H. 202, A.D. 817, or according to some in 
A.H. 203, A.D. 818. He is the eighth Imam according to the 
Shi'as. See Ibn Khallikan, Vol. I., p. 348; Tarlkh Guzlda, p. 
206, and Safinat al-Awliya', p. 26. Shra scholars believe the work

on the 3rd Rabi' II, A.H. 673, 7th October, 1274. He visited 
different countries for the sake of study, was a teacher of 
Traditions at Damascus, and wrote many useful works. His great 
Tarikh al-Islam is in twenty volumes (according to Haji K]ialifa. 
Vol. II., p. 131, in twelve volumes) : it is to be found, in odd 
volumes, in various western and eastern libraries. Dr. Horovitz 
in his work ' ' Aus den Bibliotheken von Kairo, Damaskus and Kons- 
tantinopel," p. 9, No. 5, gives the names of the different libra- 
ries where these odd volumes are to be found. adh-Dhahabi 
died on the 3rd Dhu'l Ka'da, A.H. 748, 5th February, A.D. 134S. 
Haji K]ialifa, Vol. III., p. 239, wrongly says that adh-Dhahabi died 
in A.H. 786. For details see Tabakat al-Kubra, Vol. V., p. 216 ;

but subsequently he wrote a supplement and added to the original 
work the accounts up to A.H. 744, A.D. 1343, but not to A.H.

come next to fol. 189, and fol. 212 should go before fol. 211. The 
MS. is in a very decayed condition. Some foil, are missing after 
foil, o, 9 and 48, and blank foil, of modern paper have been inserted

LAWAMr AL-ASRAR Fl SHARK MATALI' AL-ANWAR.

or portion of Logic of the work called Matali' al- Anwar by ^^' t-^la^ 

^^ii-Csv-UI ^-.LII juksv.^ ^j s<,.:sx^ ajjl s^ y) Kutb ad-Din Abu 'Abdallah 

Muhammad bin Muhammad ar-Razi at-Tahtanl. He was a pupil 
of 'Adud ad-Din al-Tji, and became one of the most eminent 
scholars of his time. In A.H. 763, A.D. 1361, he came to Damascus. 
He is the author of several works, and died in A.H. 766, A.D. 1364. 
As-Suyuti in his work Bughyat al-Wu'at (No. 268) fol. 1536, and 
ad-Durur al-Kamina (No. 271) fol. 427a, have named him Mahmud 
bin Muhammad ar-Razi. For details see Tabakat al-Kubra, Vol. 
VI., p. 31 ; at-Ta'likat as-Saniya, p. 53 ; Habib as-Siyar, Vol. III., 
Juz' I., p. 126 ; and Brockelmann, Vol II.', p. 209. 

Our author should not be confounded with another scholar of 
the same title, Kutb ad-Din, whose proper name was Mahmud bin 
Mas'ud ash-Shirazi, died A.H. 710, A.D. 1310. (See also No. 320.) 
Habib as-Siyar, again, has not made this mistake, but another in 
supposing that there were tvv^o Kut ad-Din ash-Shirazis, one of them 
being the pupil of at-Tusi, and the author of the commentary on 
al-Kaniin, and the other the author, of the commentaries on al-Mif- 
tah and Hikmat al-Ishrak, and has consequently mentioned a man 
of the name in two places, see Vol. III., Juz' I., p. 67 and Vol. III., 
Juz' I., p. 112. These works are all the production of one man, 
namely, Kutb ad-Din Mahmud bin Mas'iid ash-Shirazi. 

Biographers of the Imamiya school think that Kutb ad-Din 
ar-Razi belonged to their school. See Shudhtir al-'Ikyan, Vol. II., 
fol. 316 ; Muntaha'l Makal, p. 289 ; Ami al-Amil, p.' 70 and Kashf 
al-Hujub, p. 353 (where the date of his death is wrongly given 
A.H. 796, A.D. 1393); while others consider him to be a follower 
of Shafa'i school.

It was dedicated to Ghayath ad-Din Muhammad bin Khaja

ar-Razi, Akmal ad-Din Muhammad bin Mahamud al-Babarti, and 
with other eminent 'Ulama' of his time. He settled at Shiraz 
and began to teach students. When Timur conquered Shiraz, he 
much respected al-Jurjani, and included him among the scholars of 
his court. A discussion took place between him and Sa'd ad-Din 
at-Taf tazani in which it is said that al-Jurjani overcame him. Al- 
'Aini and those who followed him think that he died in A.H. 814,

From the preface it appears that the author wrote this super- 
commentary at the request of his son, but Dr. Loth in India Office 
Cat. No. 518 says that he wrote these notes on the advice of his 
father. It is an astonishing remark of the learned doctor. Most 
probably he read the word ^h meaning son, as .i.i)^ meaning father.

SHARH HIDAYAT AL-HIKMA. 

A commentary on al-Abhari's treatise on philosophy called 
Hidayat al-Hikma by ^<.ijj|Jl ^^^'I ^i»^< ^_ ^^.^^^ Husian bin Mu'in 
ad-Din al-Maibidhi. He was born at Mailndh, a village about ten 
leagues from Yazd, was a distinguished scholar of his age and was 
the author of several works. His commentary on Diwan 'Ali was 
completed in A.H. 890, A.D. 1485. His poetical name was Man- 
tiki. He died according to some in A.H. 904, A.D. 1498. Yahya 
al-Kazvini in his work Lubb at-Tawarikh (Library copy No. 6) 
fol. 106a says that Kadi Mir Husain Maibidhi was put to death by 
order of Sliah Isma'il in A.H. 910, A.D. 1504 in Yazd; but the 
author of Riyad al-' Ulama' says that his death took place in A.H. 
912, A.D. 1506. See Rawdat al-Jannat, p. 258 ; Habib as-Siyar. 
vol. Ill, Juz'4. p. 112: and Rieu, Persian Cat. vol.TTI, p. 1077. 

Beginning : — 

The original text is divided into three parts, Logic, Physics 
and Metaphysics, but the commentary deals with only the last two. 
From the preface it appears that this book was the first work of 
the Commentator. It was composed in A.H. 880, A.D. 1475. For 
chapters see Berlin Cat. No. 5065. 

For copies see Berlin Cat. No. 5065 ; Paris Cat. No. 2363 ;

For other commentaries on the text see Haji Khalifa, Vol. VI., 
l)p. 473-476 ; and Berhn Cat. Nos. 5067-5075. 

It was printed in Calcutta and lithographed at Lucknow, A.H. 
128L and at Cawnpore, 1880. 

The passages of the original text are marked with red lines. 
The pagination is wrong after, fol. 120. The next fol. has been 
numbered 161 instead of 121, and the mistake is carried on through-

Our copy deals only with the first part, i.e., the physics sec- 
tion of the commentary. Regarding the indentity of the author 
nothing is written in the text, but by comparing passages of this 
supercommentary with the marginal glosses of Muhammad A'lam 
as-Sandili, published on the margin of the lithographed copy of 
Sharh Sadra, the author's identity has been established. His name 

is erroneously written on an additional page Us^ y_ tj'^^ ^ d.iJil.^. 
Quotations from the commentary are headed with the word <it.iy in 
red ink, or there is a blank space intended for it. 

Written in two hands. From the beginning up to two-thirds 
of fol. 21 it is in one hand, and the rest in another. Slightly 
worm-eaten.

Sa'id al-Himyari. He was a descendent of an ancient royal family 
of Yemen, and was a poet and philologist of some repute. He

AL-MUGHRIB Fl TARTiB AL-]\IU'RIB. 

A dictionary of rare words occurring in legal books by JLaJl^I 
: .kJI JLc ^j ^i^l J.XC ^Jj-cti Abu'l Fath Nasir bin 'Abd as-Saiyid 

bin 'All al-Mutarrizi. He was born at Kliawarizm in A.H, 538, 
A.D. 1143, or according to Taj at-Tarajim fi Tabakat al-Hanafiya, 
p. 58, in A.H. 536, A.D. 1141. He studied with his father and 
others. He taught Hanafite jurispiudence and the dogmas of the 
Mu'tazilitc school. In A.H. 601, A.D. 1204, he came to Ba.^dad, 
and died in his native land in A.H. 610, A.D. 1213. As-SuyutI 
in his Bughyat al-Wu'at, p. 402, says that he was a pupil of az- 
Zamald.shari. This statement, I think, cannot be correct, because 
az-Zamakhshari died in A.H. 538, A.D. 1143, the year in which 
al-MutarrizI was born. The fact of al-MutarrizI being commonly 
considered the successor of az-Zamakjishari, owing to his vast 
erudition in philological matters, led as-Suyati, probably, to be- 
lieve that he was a pupil of that Great Master. For further details

SHARK AL-LUBAB. 

A commentary on Isfara'inl's work on syntax called al-Lubab. 
The commentar}'^ begins without a preface. In Berlin Cat. No. 
6667 and India Office Cat. No. 898, where this commentary is 
described, the author's name is also not given. But the date of 
composition, A.H. 735, A.D. 1334, given at the end of the MS., 
tallies with the date of composition of al-'Ubab, a commentary 
on the same work by Nukrakar, which according to Haji I£]iallfa, 
Vol. v., p. 303, was composed in A.H. 735, A D. 1334." This lead^ 
me to think that the commentary under notice is a copy of that 
which Haji Khalifa calls al-'Ubab, and attributes to Nukrakar. 
His full name is Jamal ad-Din -Abdallah bin Muhammad al-Husai- 
ni. He was a native of Naishabijr, but settled at Aleppo, where 
he taught in the Asadiya College. Subsequently he went to Dam- 
ascus, and from there to Cairo, where he died in A.H. 776, A.D.

ad-Din ]Mas'ud bin 'Umar at-Taftazani. He was born in A.H. 722,

712, A.D._]312, at Taftazan in Kjmrasaii ; studied with Adud 
ad-Din al-ljl and Kutl) ad-Din ar-Razi, and bocamo a professor at 
Sarakhs. When Timur. after the conquest of Khawarizni. ])(\ard 
of his great scholarshij) and learning, lie summoned him to his 
Court, and consequently he came to the Emperor, who showered 
honours on him. He died, according to Buryat al-Wu'at, p. 39 L 
in A.H. 791, A.I). 1.3S9, and according to Habih ;is-Siyar, Vol. JIJ., 
Juz' 3, p. 88 in A.H. 797, A.D. 1394. Most of the Arabic bio- 
graphers such as 'Abd al-Hai in al-Fawa'id al Bahiya, p. 56 ; 
al-Kafavi, in Idam al-Akhyar, fol. 376, Rawdat al-Jannat, p. 309 ; 
and Madinat al-'Ulum, fol. 426, say that he had died in A.H. 792, 
A.D. 1390. Scholars also differ very much as to whether at-Tafta- 
zani was a Hanafi or a Shafi'i in his views. Zain al-'Abidlii bin 
Ibrahim bin Nujaim al-Hanafi, the author of Bahr ar-Ra'ik. in the 
preface of Path al-Ghaffar fi Sharh al-^Iinar, says that he was a 
Hanafi ; and this statement is supported by at-Tahtavi at the 
end of his commentary on ad-Durr al-Mukhtar. "Ali al-Kari, in 
his Tabakat al-Hanafiya, fol. 1 226, also shared the same notion 
concerning at-Taftazani, though he confounded his name with his 
father's, for he has named him 'Uniar bin Mas'ud Sa'd ad-Din 
at-Taftazani. Others rightly considered him to be a Sliafi'i ; for 
instance al-Kafavi in his work I'lam al-Akhyar, fol. 3756, as-Suyuti 
in Bugiyat al-Wu'at, p. 391, and Haji Khalifa, Vol. II., p. 444. 
Also see Habib as-Sivar, Vol. III., Juz' 3, p. 87, and Brockelmann, 
Vol. II., p. 215. ' 

Beginning : — 

At-Taftazani wrote two commentaries on Talkhis al-^Iiftah. 
The first was the elaborate commentary known as al-Mutaiuwal, 
and the second was the concise one known as al-Muhhtasar, popular- 
ly called MiiJchtasar al-Ma'dm. The MS. under notice is the second 
commentary. It is a matter of great gratification that scholars 
should have paid special attention to the writings of at-Taftazani ; 
and with regard to most of his works they have found out the 
dates on which they were commenced or finished. As that he com- 
pleted Sharh az-Zanjani in Sha'ban, A.H. 738, A.D. 1337, when 
his age was 16 years; al-Mutaicival at Hirat in A.H. 748, A.D.

according to Kaslif al-Hujub, p. 343, in A.H. 1069, A.D. 165S. 

I think the latter date is wrong, as from the colophon it appears 

that the author completed this work (at a college called i-,;^!

being' crrown up enough to finish such a learned work. The date 

\ H 1069 A D. 1658. is the date of the death of the author's son 

(called Muila Hasan -All), and that may have caused the confusion.

KALIMAT MAKNUNA. 

A collection of one hundred .sayings attributed to 'Ali bin 
Abi Talib, died, A.H. 40, A.D. 661,"^ and some Traditions of the 
Prophet, both with a paraphrase in Persian distichs. 

It begins with a Persian couplet as follows : —

designated kiy^iye iJlx 'LM *jU and Js. ^lli" -« \ ^'lis J.i' ^-i^^.'c

ad-Din Muhammad bin 'Abd al-Jalll, known as al-Watwat. He 
was a native of Balldi. He served as chief secretary under 
Atsiz (A.H. 535-551 A.D. 1140-1156) and his son Il-Arsalan 
(A.H. 551-568, A.D. 1156-1172). He died in A.H. 578, A.D. 
1182. See Hablb as-Siyar, Vol. II., Juz' IV, pp. 169, 174; 
Hammer, Redekiinste, p. 119; Sprenger, Oude Cat. p. 541; and 
Rieu, Persian Cat. Br. Mus. p. 553a. But from Ghurar al-Hikam 
of Amid! (No. 407) fol. 2, it appears that Abii 'Uthman al-Jahiz, 
died, c. A.H. 3.55. A.D. 869, collected the hundred sayings of 'All 
bin Abl Talib. See also Rawdat al-Jannat, p. 465.

tions see Iktifa' al-Kunu', p. 356 and Edwards (E.), Cat. Persian 
Printed Books, Br. Mus. p. 107. 

The MS. under notice contains altogether 133 aphorisms. In 
my opinion two distinct treatises, viz. one containing the hundred 
sayings of 'All, and another treatise with the forty select Tradi- 
tions of the Prophet, were put together by some one, and given the 
above-mentioned name iij.jj:^ c^UJ^ ; because in fol. \h we find the 
remark AjJx ail I ^^^-e ib^Ala^aJI ^jy-vi' ^..i^c>U.)'l v^ii-^ '' the Tradi- 
tions of the Prophet ended ", and on fol. \a we find the expression 
,iUJI sAc ^_^c Jli" 'Ah, peace be on him, has said." Someone, 

most probably a bookseller of Lucknow. in order to deceive the 
purchaser of MSS. has combined the two works, and named it 
ii^JX* ^Us. Some foil, are missing, and consequently instead of 



447 

140 apliorism8 we have only 133. Fol. 23 contains a colophon in 
Persian, misplaced. Fol. 13 should come before fol. Ih, which is a 
separate fol. that has been pasted on the opposite side of fol. la. 
We notice also the following couplet on fol. 16 :— 

This indicates that the Persian paraphrase, as far as the 40 
Traditions are concerned, was made by JamI, whose full name was 
Nur ad-Din 'Abd ar-Rahman bin Ahmad al-Jami, whereas nothing 
is said there about the paraph raser of the 100 proverbs, but ac- 
cording to Rieu, p. 553a Watwat is the author of the translation. 

Al-Jami was born in A.H 817, A.D. 1414 ; spent most of his 
life in Hirat, and died there in A.H. 898, A.D. 1492. For details 
of his life see Daulat Shah, p. 483; Majma' al-Fusaha', Vol. II., 
p. 11 ; Rieu, Persian Cat. Br. Mus. p. 17a ; and Browne, Persian 
Literature Under Tartar Dominion, pp. 507-548. 

The translation of these Traditions was made in A.H. 886, 
as the same fol. lb says : — 

For copies see Rieu, Persian Cat. Br. Mus. Vol. I. p. 17 ; Vol.

Borders are changed into modern paper. It is a splendid copy, 
and represents a very fine specimen of calligraphy. Arabic texts 
are written in gold letters in Nasldi character, and three aphorisms 
go generally to each page. The Persian translation is written below 
each aphorism in a beautiful minute Nasta'lik character. Not 
dated. C. 16th century.

DIWAN ALi. 

The dlwaii of -Aii bin Abi Talib, the son-in-law of the Prophet. 
died, A.H. 40, A.D. 660. According to some authorities ^«taJI^I 
,^yjl ^-iL; ^^j*J\ ^^^^1 ^-J ^^ ^'^^"'l IN'"^^^"^ '-^^^ ^^"^ ^^^- 
Husain, known as as-Saiyid al-Murtada. a descendant of 'AH bin 
Abl Taiib, is the collector of these poems. Brockelmann, Vol. I., 
p. 40*5, Huart, p. 253, and others, on the authority of Mustaklm 
Zada assert that he is the real author of the drwmi and that it is 
wrongly attributed to 'AH bin Abi Talib. (As-Saiyid al-Murtada 
was born in A.H. 355, A.D. 966, and died at Ba<|^dad in A.H. 
436. A.D. 1044. He is the author of several v/orks. For details 
of his life see Ibn Khallikan, Vol. I., p. 365 : Rawdat al-Jannat, 
p 383: Shudhur al-'Ikyan, Vol. I., foil. 435-163; and Rijal 
Xajjashi, p. 192.) Authors of the Inicamlya sect differ very much 
with regard to the authorship of the Dliran. Kashf al-Hujub wa'l 
Astar p. 215. says: "Some consider that 'Ali bin Abi Talib al- 
Kirwani is the author of this dlwdn. Al-Hnrr al-'Amili mentions 
it in the list of books by unknown authors. Al-Majlisi in his 
Bihar al-Anwar thinks that it is difficult to believe that the whole 
diwan is the production of 'Ali bin Abi Talib although many of 
the poems of the diwan are (known to be) the composition of the 
Imam • for thev are quoted (as his) in various reliable books. Ibn 
Shahr Ashub (died, A.H. 588, A.D. 1192) in his work Ma'alim al- 
'Ulama' thinks that 'Ali bin Ahmad al-Fanjukirdi (died, A.H. 513, 
A.D. 1119) is the collector of the diwan; while an-Najjashi 
includes it in the works of 'Abd al-'Aziz bin Yahya al-Jaliidi." 
In my opinion Abu'l Hasan (or Husain) Kutb ad-Din Said bin 
Hibatallah bin al-Hasan ar-Rawandi is the compiler of the diwan. 
In compiling it he consulted 'Ali bin Ahmad al-Fanjukirdi's book 
called Sulv/at ash-Shi' a, which contains about two hundred coup- 
lets of 'Ali bin Abi Talib, and also other poetical collections, his- 
tories. ,and biographies of different authors, and wherever he found 
})oetical compositions, which he thought were the production of 
•Ali, he collected them, naming his book jL-*.^\ ^^ Jj.5xJl ;Iyl

Ituamiya author, wrote about thirty books. He died in A.H. 573,

by J}.f,^] ^jj^^ ^.^Loii'I fri^^y) ^ ^_j^ ^J^. >3..«.^v<> ^^ J«,a-a.l Ahmad 

bin Muhammad bin 'Ali bin Ibrahim al-Ansari al-Yamani ash- 
Shirwani. His great-grandfather, Ibrahim, was an inhabitant of 
Hamadan and a minister of Nadir Shah. But ovving to the murder 
of his son 'All better known as ^luhammf.d 'Ali Khan, by 
that tyrant, he and all his relatives fled from Persia. Ibrahim 
went to Najaf, and settled there. Mirza Muhammad Hasan, the 
other son of Ibrahim, came to India, and settled at Benares. Mirza 
Muhammad Taki (our author's father) settled at Shirwan, changf- 
ing his name to Muhammad. After some time, when- he came to 
know that his uncle Mirza Muhammad Hasan was alive, and resid- 
ing at Benares he came to that city ; but before his arrival the uncle 
died. Muhammad being disappointed at the news of the death of 
his uncle, and at the discourteous treatment of his cousins, went 
to Lucknow. Here the Xawwab Asif ad-Dawla showered royal 
favours on him. After staying for some time at Lucknov,^ he 
started for his home at Shirwan. But when he arrived at Hudaida, 
he married the daughter of Fakhr at-Tujjar as-Saiyid Haidar al- 
Bagtdadi, and the issue of this marriage was our author. His early 
days-w^ere passed at Hudaida, where he studied the different branches 
of learning. Subsequently he came to Calcutta, and by the pat- 
ronage of some European Orientalists he was appointed an in- 
structor of Arabic literature in the College of Fort William. After 
some time he resigned the appointment, and went to Lucknow 
(during the time of Nawwab Ghazi ad-Din Haidar). The Nawwab 
was much pleased with him, and he ])assed very happy days there. 
Here he married the daughter of Saiyid Isma'il : and Muhammad 
'Abbas, poetically known as Raf'at, was born in A.H. 1241, A.D. 
1825. Ahmad ash-Shirwani, after the death of the Nawwab, visited 
different cities and countries, such as Cawnpur, Benares, Hydera- 
bad, Blmpal; and died in A.H. 1256, A.D. 1840 at Puna. He is 
the author of many works, among whicli the follo^^ing are well 
known: — 'Ujb al-'Ujab, printed, Calcutta 1813 ; Nafhat al-Yaman.

the great philologist ^_^.^i'I i .^.s ^.j lSU\ >yyc oo;**« y) Abu Sa'Id 

'Abd al-Mahk bin Kuraib al-Asma'i. The latter was born at 
Basra in A.H. 122, A.D. 739, or A.H. 123, A.D. 740. He came to 
Baghdad during the reign of Harun ar-Rashid (A.H. 170-193, 
A.D. 786-809) and was considered as one of the highest author- 
ities on philological matters connected with the Arabic languages. 
He died in A.H. 216, A.D. 831. Some say that his death took 
place in A.H. 214, or 215, or 217. For details see Ibn Kliallikan, 
Vol. I., p. 313 ; Nuzhatal-Alibba'; pp. 150-172 ; Bughyat al-Wu'at ; 
p. 313; Brockelmann, Vol. I., p. 104; and Abh. zur Arab. Philo- 
logie, Part I., p. 136.

author of the book, that it was a production of a much later date.

SHARH TAJRID Al-'AKA'ID. 

A commentary by ^^_^^J:.y'il] ^^^x^c -j J-c ^:^1 ^Uc 'Ala' ad- 
Din 'Ali bin Muhammad al-Kushji upon the well-known work of 
scholastic theology entitled Tajrid al-Kalam of Nasir ad-Din 
Muhammad bin Muhammad at-Tusi, died A.H. 672, A.D. 1273. 
AI-Kushji first studied in Samarkand and then proceeded to Kirman, 
where he carried on his studies under the best masters. When he 
returned to Samarkand, Ulugh Beg employed him for the comple- 
tion of his great astronomical work. After the death of that 
prince, he returned to Tabriz. From there he went to Constan- 
tinople to Sultan Muhammad II, carrjdng a friendly missive from 
Uzun Hasan the Ak Kuyunlu, ruler of Tabriz. The Sultan re- 
ceived him with great honour, and asked him to stay in his 
country. Al-Kushji accepted the offer, and said that he would 
come back to Constantinople after delivering the reply of the 
Sultan to the ruler of Tabriz. He fulfilled his promise, and came 
back to Constantinople. The Sultan received him with much 
greater honours than before, and at last he was appointed the 
Principal of the Aya Sufiya College on a salary of 200 dirhams per 
day. He died in A.H. 879, A.D. 1474. The surname al-Kushji 
•' the falconer " is, according to ash-Shaka'ik an-Nu'maniya, 
]). 250, derived from his father's office. He was in charge of the 
hawks of Ulugh Beg. Some say that he was a great favourite of 
UIu|^ Beg, who, while hunting, used to entrust him with his 
hawk, and hence his surname is al-Kiishji. 

For details of his hfe see ash-Shaka'ik an-Nu'maniya, Vol. I.,
