Description

Literary text. In Arabic script. Leaf from an Arabic work on horoscopes/prognostications in a beautiful naskhī script. The horoscopes/prognostications are predicted for each day of an unknown month starting from the 3rd day of the month till the 14th. Some predictions include sound health, hearing good news, dispelling sorrows, and reuniting with family and loved ones. One distinctive feature of these horoscopes/prognostications is the phrase "wallāhu aʿlam" (God knows better) after each prediction.
