Chapter Summary

The circle of ʿAbd al-Ghanī's correspondents includes, Arab and Turkish friends, colleagues, mystics, high-ranking officials, and individuals he did not know. All of his correspondents resided outside Damascus in sixteen cities located in what were then known as Bilād al-Shām, al-Bilād al-Rūmiyya, Ḥijāz, and Miṣr or al-Bilād al-Miṣriyya. The author was able to identify and locate all the towns and cities referred to in the Wasāʾil. This chapter presents a map of the Eastern Ottoman Provinces, showing the places and towns of ʿAbd al-Ghanī's correspondents.

Keywords: ʿAbd al-Ghanī's correspondents; Ḥijāz; al-Bilād al-Rūmiyya; Bilād al-Shām; Wasāʾil
