Persian Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'><i>The Zād al-Musāfirīn</i> (Provisions for the Travellers) by medieval Sufi poet Amīr Ḥusayn ibn ‘Ālim ibn Ḥasan al-Ḥusaynī Haravī, known as Amīr Ḥusaynī or Fakhr al-Sādāt (d. ca. 1317). Originally from Ghor, Afghanistan, the author travelled to Multan where he became a disciple of the Suhravardī Ṣūfī Shaykh, Rukn al-Dīn Abū'l-Fatḥ, the grandson and successor of Bahā' al-Dīn Zakarīyā, but then he ultimately settled in Herat. Comprised of eight <i>maqālāt</i> (treatises), the author modelled his work on the <i>Ḥadīqat al-Ḥaqīqat</i> (Enclosed Garden of Truth) of Ḥakīm Sanā'ī. A scribe named Shīr Muḥammad Dihlavī likely completed this volume in the Indian subcontinent in 1085 AH (1674 CE). </p>
