Summary note
Treatise on the words with the same consonant skeleton susceptible of having three different meanings depending on the vocalization (edited Makkah, 1984). At the end of the text, copy of two versions of an ijāzah written by Muḥammad ibn ʻAbd Allāh ibn ʻAbd Allāh ibn Mālik al-Ṭāʼī al-Jayyānī on Saturday, 29 Rabīʻ al-Awwal 667 [1268] for Shams al-Dīn Abū ʻAbd Allāh Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad ibn ʻAbbās ibn Abī Bakr ibn Haʻwān? al-Anṣārī, transmitted by Muḥammad ibn Abī al-Fatḥ ibn Abī al-Faḍl al-Baʻlbakī al-Ḥanbalī, found by the copyist at the end of his exemplar. The text is followed on fol. 138a by a short text by Ibn Taymīyah on semantics, reported by Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawzīyah (incomplete at end).
