Persian Manuscripts : Ḥadīqat al-Ḥaqīqah va Sharī‘at al-Ṭarīqah, Sayr al-‘Ibād ila'l-Ma‘ād

Persian Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> This composite text includes the <i>Ḥadīqat al-Ḥaqīqah va Sharī‘at al-Ṭarīqah</i> (Garden of Truth and Rules of the Way) along with a shorter work entitled <i>Sayr al-‘Ibād ila'l-Ma‘ād</i> (The Way of Worship Unto the Hereafter) by Abū al-Majd Majdūd ibn Ādam Sanāʼī al-Ghaznavī, d. ca. 1150. The style of the first work tremendously impacted later poets, especially Jalāl al-Dīn Rūmī. An unidentified scribe beautifully copied this manuscript, which features three delicately illuminated headpieces, but regrettably neither signed nor dated the colophon, although he probably completed it in either Iran or India in the early 17th century.</p>
