The birth of a successful prayer book

Abid, Hiba

The vast project to reconstruct a history and geography of the spread of the Dalāʾil al-Khayrāt necessarily involves looking into the beginnings of the prayerbook’s manuscript transmission. Composed in Morocco before 869/1465, the prayerbook was already known in the Eastern Maghreb from the mid-11th/17th century. It then reached Turkey and the rest of the Mashriq. After that it found its way to Ce... more

The Dalāʾil al-khayrāt in Central Asia and Eastern Turkestan

Papas, Alexandre, 1973‒

Recent discoveries and overlooked documents help us to understand the spread of the Dalāʾil al-khayrāt in a region stretching from the Tatar lands to the Tarim Basin, passing Bukhara and Kokand along the way. This paper by no means aims to provide a historical survey of al-Jazūlī’s prayer book in Central Asia. Rather, I introduce some leads for research on the basis of several manuscripts. A first... more

Formen und Funktionen des Layouts in arabischen Manuskripten anhand von Abschriften religiöser Texte

Daub, Frederike-Wiebke

Das Layout (oder Mise-en-page) in arabischen Manuskripten ist ein Themenfeld, das trotz seiner hohen Bedeutung für die arabische Manuskriptkultur bislang nur wenig Beachtung gefunden hat. Schriftlich tradiertes Wissen wird durch das Layout organisiert und strukturiert. Dadurch erfüllt es wichtige Funktionen für die Rezeption der Manuskripte in verschiedenen Gebrauchszusammenhängen. Neben formalen ... more

In writing and in sound

Göloğlu, Sabiha

Copies of Dalāʾil al-Khayrāt (Proofs of Good Deeds) by the Moroccan Sufi saint Muḥammad b. Sulaymān al-Jazūlī (d. 870/1465) were in high demand in the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Ottoman Empire. This required producing manuscripts in large numbers and, later, printing the text. These mostly lithographic copies and corpora of the Dalāʾil al-Khayrāt, when combined with references to biographi... more

The regional recitations of al-Jazūlī’s Dalāʾil al-Ḫayrāt as reflected in its manuscript tradition

Putten, Marijn van, 1988‒

Muḥammad al-Jazūlī’s Dalāʾil al-Ḫayrāt is one of the most popular and widespread Islamic prayer books in the Sunni Islamic world; consequently, most library collections around the world have many copies of this manuscript. Despite its prolific written form, it is its recitation that should probably be considered the most prominent expression of the text. This paper undertakes a careful analysis of... more

Abid, Hiba

Nearly a century after it was written by the Moroccan Ṣūfī Sīdī b. Sulaymān al-Jazūlī (d. 869/1465), the book of salutations [on the Prophet Muḥammad] entitled the Dalāʾil al-khayrāt, widely circulated throughout the Muslim Sunnī world. It soon became one of the most copied religious books after the Qur'an. Most importantly, it appears that the Dalāʾil manuscripts share a great amount of material ... more
