Persian Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This work entitled <i>ʻImād-i Subḥānīyah dar ‘Ilm-i Suluk</i> (Pillar of Praise in the Science of the Seekers), appears to contain just the first three of four chapters of the work better known as the <i>Junūn al-Majānīn</i> (Lunacy of the Mad). Composed by the author, Qivām al-Dīn Muḥammad ibn ʻImād Sanjānī (d. 1418) in 770 AH (1368 CE), in the work, he stridently critiques what he deems unorthodox, extremist tendencies of some Sufis, a position for which later figures such as Jāmī praise him. This volume, completed by a likely Mughal-era scribe named Muḥammad ibn Jalāl Shāh Chishtī al-Sarhindī in 17 Rabī‘ I 1013 AH (13 Aug. 1604 CE). </p>
