Language(s): Persian

A Persian paraphrase and extensive commentary on an Arabic treatise on divine unity by Muḥammad Nūr Allah ibn Muḥammad Muqīm al-Dīn Aʻz̤ampūrī who completed an earlier work in 1244 (1828/29). The author of the Arabic work being commented on is repeatedly referred to as Mawlānā ʻAbd al-Raḥmān which can therefore be identified as the Risālah fī kalimat al-tawḥīd by Jāmī. The Arabic text, overlined in red, begins on f. 10v. For a Persian version of this work see Or.8018, ff.1-5. 14 lines per page; cursive nastaʻliq; rubrications; slightly worm-eaten; 19th century.
