Summary of Contents: al-Shamsīyah fī al-Qawāʾid al-Manṭiqīyah is a work on logic written by Najm al-Dīn ʿUmar ibn ʿUmar Katibī Qazvīnī (died 693 AH/1294). There have been numerous commentaries written on this work, the most well-known of which being "Taḥrīr al-Qawāʿid al-Manṭiqīyah fī Sharḥ al-Risālat al-Shamsīyah" written by Quṭb al-Dīn Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad Rāzī Buvayhī", known as "Quṭb-i Rāzī" (694-766 AH, 1294-1364). On this work itself, two famous glosses have been written: first, a brief gloss on the introduction and preface of Quṭb-i Rāzī's work, called "Ḥāshīyat al-Muqaddamah Taḥrīr al-Qawāʻid al-Manṭiqīyah fī Sharḥ Risālat al-Shamsīyah" written by Burhān al-Dīn Muḥammad ibn Kamāl al-Dīn Ḥamīd; and second, a more comprehensive gloss on the full content of Quṭb-i Rāzī's work, called "al-Ḥāshīyat ʿalá Taḥrīr al-Qawāʻid al-Manṭiqīyah" written by Mīr Sayyid Sharīf Jurjānī (740-816 AH/1339-1413). During the same century (i.e. 9th Hijrī AH/15th), ʿImād al-Dīn Muḥammad ibn Yaḥyá Fārisī wrote a supergloss on the work of Mīr Sayyid Sharīf Jurjānī and called it Ḥāshīyah Ḥāshīyah ʿalá Taḥrīr al-Qawāʻid al-Manṭiqīyah, known simply as "Ḥāshīyah-i ʿImād". The current copy is "Taḥrīr al-Qawāʿid al-Manṭiqīyah fī Sharḥ al-Risālat al-Shamsīyah" written by Quṭb-i Rāzī.

Logic

Incipit: بسمله، ان ابهی درر تنظم ببنان البیان و ازهر زهر تنشر فی اردان الاذهان حمد مبدع انطق الموجودات بایات وجوب وجوده و شکر منعم اغرق المخلوقات… و بعد فقد طال الحاح المشتغلین علی المترددین الی ان اشرح لهم الرساله الشمسیه و ابین فیه القواعد المنطقیه… و تقریرات شائقه تعجب استماعها الاذان و سمّیته بتحریر القواعد المنطقیه فی شرح الرساله الشمسیه و خدمت به عالی حضرت… و هو المخدوم الاعظم و دستور اعاظم الوزراء فی العالم صاحب سیف والقلم… قال و رتبته علی مقدمه و ثلث مقالات و خاتمه… امّا المقدمه ففیه بحثان الاول فی ماهیه المنطق و بیان الحاجه الیه و الثانی فی موضوعه… و امّا لمقالات فثلث فاوّلها فی المفردات والثانیه فی القضایا و احکامها والثالثه فی القیاس و امّا الخاتمه ففی مواد الاقیسه و اجزاء العلوم…
Explicit: … فهی الاعراض الذاتیه لموضوع العلم فلا بد ان یکون خارجه عن موضوعاتها لامتناع ان یکون جزء الشیئی مطلوبا ببرهان لان الاجزاء الذاتیه بین الثبوت للشیئی و لکن هذا آخر ما اردنا ایراده فی هذه الاوراق.
Colophon: دستم بزیر خاک چو خواهد شدن… / … باری بیادگار بماند خط سیاه. سنه ۹۱۷
