DESCRIPTION:

Beautiful Arabian Hadith manuscript of the 18th/19th century, hand-written on paper. Hadiths are oral traditions relating to the words and deeds of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Hadith collections are regarded as important tools for determining the Sunnah, or Muslim way of life, by all traditional schools of jurisprudence. The book, which originates from Northern Africa, is written in black and red ink. It includes the sixth part of a Hadith collection, the so called “book of will” or “book of suggestions”. The book cotains two different hand writings on two different kinds of paper. The earlier one seems to be from the 18th century or maybe is even older. The new one is written on European “three-moon-paper” (watermark).
