Description of manuscript content:
The manuscript describes in detail the proper way to seek knowledge, to make the ablution, to enter a mosque etc. In the explanations, the knowledge seekers fall into three categories, those who do so: 1. only because of Allah, 2. only to obtain worldly power while one acknowledges this, and 3. only to become Satan’s slave so that knowledge is used as the bridge to obtain worldly matters and power.
