Modelled upon the <i>Gulistān</i> (Rose Garden) of Saʻdī, he divided the work into eight chapters or 'gardens' (<i>rawz̤ah</i>) devoted to Sufi saints and philosophers, the topics of justice, generosity, love, and comedy, as well as a highly esteemed section on poetic literature, and the last regarding animals.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>This manuscript, probably completed in India in 1260 AH (1844 CE) contains nine illustrations and appears to be the latest copy of this work held in the Rylands' collections.</p>
