  • Explicit: وقد كانت كل امة تجرى من دلك على عادتها وكانت العرب فى جاهليتها يتوارثون بالحلت(؟) وال[...] كما يتوارثون بالانسان طلبا للتواصل به انتهى فهذا اخر ما يسر الله تعالى ايراده في هذا الكتاب ولله الحمد اولا واخرا ظاهرا وباطنا سبحانك ... الحمد لله الذى هدانا لهذا وما كنا لنهتدى لو لا ان هدانا الله وصلي الله على سيدنا محمد خير خلقه واله وصحبته وسلم
