Blessing formula for the caliph al-Ḥāfiẓ li-Dīn Allah (1131-1149 CE), possibly a draft petition. See also T-S NS 110.26. (“Prayers from the Geniza for Fatimid Caliphs, the Head of Jerusalem Yeshiva, the Jewish community and the Local Congregation,'' in Studies in Judaica, Karaitica and Islamica, Presented to Leon Nemoy...Bar-Ilan University, 1982, 49-58) EMS Goitein thought this was a prayer, but it is almost certainly the draft of a petition formula.
