Description of manuscript content:
The first text is about the twenty attributes of Allah. The second text is about the conclusion about the essence of the ritual ablution. It starts with the meaning behind washing the hands which are based on Adam when he fetched the khuldi fruit in heaven which he did with his hands and therefore we have to wash our hands. The third text is about the metaphor of knowing one's self. It starts with one's being and continues with knowing one's self through Allah's attributes. It is therefore the essence of one's self.
