Chapter Summary

There are four manuscripts of al-Aqwāl. What follows is a detailed description of their most salient features. While all the four were utilized in this edition, two were sparingly used since they added little clarity to the text and represented a redundancy in the history of the transmission of the text. The remaining two copies, because of the peculiarity of each, and the relationship they exhibit, were essential for this edition. Eventually, a facsimile of the two copies used for the edition should be published, since they represent an important teaching tool for students of Arabic paleography. Two of the four manuscripts are housed in the Egyptian National Library.
