Commentary on al-Sakkākī's Miftāḥ al-ʻulūm

Incipit: خير خبر يوشح به صدر الكلام وأحسن حديث يرشح لمقتضي المقام حمد لله الذي خلق الانسان علّمه البيان.
Explicit: والاستمداد في اللغة طلب المدد يقال استمددت الأمير وتعديته إلى مفعولين يتضمن معنى الطلب والسؤال والله المسؤل لتيّسر الامال والمشكور على ما فاض من النوال وله الحمد على كل حال والصلوة على رسوله وآله خير آل. ||
