Cataloguing

Catalogue Note

The text seems to be unrecorded in Brockelman and other reference texts but a copy of it is recorded in the al-Azhar library, Cairo, and a thesis written by Ayed Mustafa Faris Abu Arra (An-Najah National University, Nablus, Palestine, 2015) investigates the text, its content and transmission. The volume is divided into four chapters and deals with the holy sites of Mecca, Medina, Jerusalem and Hebron.
