Names of Allah

Ms KH25, vol.1, pp. 41-43

Copied between Samvat 1793/1736 CE and Samvat 1879/1822 CE by an unknown copyist.

One of the earliest dated Khojkiinfo-icon manuscripts in the IIS’ collection, these pages reveal the names of Allah copied in the Khojki script, for example al-Karim (‘the Generous’) and al-Batininfo-icon (‘the Hidden’). The names are copied in black ink in a special format, often highlighted with lines above each name. Unfortunately, the manuscript is stained and its pages damaged.
