Contents
  • 1. fol. 1a-34b: al-Kalām fī al-iʻtiqād al-khāliṣ min al-shakk wa-al-intiqād / ʻAlī ibn Ibrāhīm ibn al-ʻAṭṭār. This treatise on faith concludes with a qaṣīdah of Abū Bakr ʻAbd Allāh ibn Abi Dāʼūd Sulaymān al-Sijistānī (d. 316/928) which the author read before Abū Bakr ibn Ibrāhīm ibn ʻAnd al-Raḥmān al-Shāfiʻī in Shawwāl 699 H. [1300] (see fol. 33b, l. 1). Incomplete at the beginning.
  • 2. fol. 35a-38a: Ḥukm masʼalat al-qadar / Aḥmad ibn ʻAbd al-Ḥalīm ibn Taymīyah. Answer to a question on free will, in verses (102, according to the colophon).
  • 3. fol. 38a-39b: [Qaṣidah fī madḥ Ibn Taymīyah]. Verses in praise of Ibn Taymīyah.
  • 4. fol. 40a-138b: [al-Alfāẓ al-kitābīyah]. Glossary of synonyms, partly identical with Kitāb al-alfāẓ al-kitābīyah of ʻAbd al-Raḥmān ibn ʻĪsā al-Hamadhānī (d. 320/932; GAL I, 127/1; SI, 195), but containing a considerable number of chapters not found in Cheikho's edition of Hamadhānī's work (Beirut, 1885). Ms. Berlin 7048 seems to contain a fragment of the same text. Incomplete at the beginning. The ms. has been tampered with by a forger. See R. Mach. Yahuda, no. 3776 for a more detailed description. Lacunae. Some folios are bound in wrong sequence.
