Ms KH38b, folio 131b


As illustrated here, Khojkiinfo-icon manuscripts often include a table of contents at the end of a pothi (manuscript). In this folio, the copyist (Megaji) offers his greetings and prayers at the end of the contents table.


Megaji also provides a note stating that Kamadia Virpar had copied certain texts (including the Hadithinfo-icon of Prophet Muhammad) from someone from Gujarat belonging to ‘Pirana Patan’ (where the shrine of Sayyidinfo-icon Imaminfo-icon Shah is situated, near Ahmadabad). Sayyid Imam Shah is reputed to have been a charismatic preacher and an author of numerous ginans. He died in 1513 CE.
