About this item

Content

Collection of prescriptions, notes on materia medica, anecdotes and poetry concerning medicine and related topics drawn from various sources. The author is said to be Abū al-Ḥasan ‘Alī ibn ‘Abd Allāh Muḥammad al-Qurashī (أبو الحسن علي بن عبد الله محمد القرشي, see ff. 93v, line 13-94r, line 2). Sources quoted, and discussed include ancient authorities (e.g. Kisrá Anūsirwān [كسرى أنوشروان] f. 10r, Hippocrates [بقراط] f. 87v, Plato [أفلاطون] f. 96r, and Aristotle [أرسطاطاليس] f. 98v), early Islamic figures (e.g. the Prophet Muḥammad [محمد رسول الله] f. 79v and Alī ibn Abī Ṭālib [علي بن أبي طالب] f. 75r), and later authors (e.g. al-Būnī [البوني] f.2v, Avicenna [ابن سينا] f. 3r, and Ibn Maḥmūd al-Khūlānī [ابن محمود الخولاني]). The nature of the quotation attributed to al-Būnī [البوني], suggests that the well-known sufi mystic and occultist Abū al-‘Abbās Aḥmad ibn ‘Alī al-Būnī (أبو العباس أحمد بن علي البوني, d. ca 1225) is meant, which provides a late twelfth-century terminus post quem for the text.

The scribe is Muḥammad ibn Mūsá al-‘Ammūrī al-Mālikī (محمد بن موسى العموري المالكي; see colophon Section at the end of a manuscript text. , f. 109r, lines 4-7, transcribed below).

Begins (f. 2v, lines 2-8):

فائدة من كلام البوني

اعلم إنما سميت الفاتحة بأم القرأن

لا سيما لها على جميع معانيه أصولًا وفروعًا

فكلما فيه من مدح وثناء وشكر لله سبحانه وتعالى

يندرج تحت قوله الحمد لله وكلما فيه من ذكر

الملائكة والأنبياء والمرسلين والأنس والجن

تحت قوله رب العالمين ...

Ends (f. 109r, lines 1-4):

... لا حول ولا قوة إلا

بالله العلي العظيم وصلى الله

على سيدنا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه وسلم تسليمًا كثيرًا ثم ...

Colophon Section at the end of a manuscript text. (f. 109r, lines 4-15):

... وكمل على يد أفقر

العباد إلى الله تعالى محمد العموري بلدًا

المالكي مذهبًا الفقيه مجمعين محمد بن موسى الفقيه

العموري غفر الله له ولوالديه ولمشائخه

ولمن كان سببًا في كتابته وأدام النفع

به والحمد لله وحده وصلى الله على

من لا نبي بعده وعلى آله وصحبه

وسلم تسليمًا كثيرًا دائمًا

أبدًا إلى يوم الدين

والحمد لله رب

العالمين
