Chapter Summary

This appendix includes a selection of texts on issues related to pious endowments. The author selects a group whose themes are sufficiently wide and varied so as to show the enormous complexity and wealth of nuances that the study of this Islamic institution affords. As for their provenance, they are all legal texts, with the exception of an engraving found in Seville’s Archaeological Museum. The texts written by al-Khaṣsāf (9th century), Saḥnun (9th century), Ibn al-ʿAṭṭar (10th century), Ibn Mughīth (11th century), Ibn Rushd (11th-12th centuries), ʿIyāḍ (12th century), Ibn ʿAbdūn (11th-12th centuries) and al-Wansharīsī's compilation (15th century) are included in the appendix.

Keywords: ʿIyāḍ; al-Khaṣsāf; Ibn al-ʿAṭṭar; Ibn Mughīth; Ibn Rushd; Islamic institution; legal texts; pious endowments; Saḥnun
