Description

Upper part of a petition (first 9 lines) addressed to "al-amīr... al-mujāhid al-muthāghir al-murābiṭ al-isfahsalār... Shihāb al-Dīn." Dating: 13th century, or possibly later. The petitioner reports that the muezzin who had served in the Madrasa of Sayf al-Dīn Yāzkūj is 115 years old(!?) and that the addressee كان يصدق, whatever that means in this context -- had been charitable toward him? had believed him? The continuation is missing. On this madrasa, named for Sayf al-Dīn Yāzkūj, a mamlūk of Asad al-Dīn Shīrkūh who later served under Saladin and al-Malik al-ʿAzīz and died in Egypt in 1203 CE, see Ogden Goelet and Sameh Iskander, "The Restoration of Sunnism: The Early History of Islamic Law Schools and the Professoriate in Egypt, 495-647/1101-1249," pp. 185–86. Reused on verso for piyyuṭ.
