  • The first complete book extant is kitāb al-wakālah which begins on fol. 1b as follows: ... کتاب الوکالة . باب فى وکالة الشرىك فى القسمة وغىرها . وقد اشرك النبى ... علىا فى هدىة ثم امره بقسمتها . حدثنا محمد قال حدثنا محمد قال حدثنا محمد قال حدثنا قصىبة ... عن على علىه السلام قال امرنى رسول الله ... ان اتصدق
  • The folio numbers (by a later hand) indicate that 59 leaves are missing at the beginning; there are lacunae after fol. 49 and 59; fol. 46b and 47a are blank; the ms. breaks off in litāb al-jihād wa-al-siyar which begins on fol. 64a.
