Manuscript Leaf in Arabic


We’re not 100% certain what this one is about. We translated one side of this leaf via Google and it covered a broad range of topics from kicking a blind person to menstruation. It’s definitely not a list of groceries. ChatGPT says it appears to be from a collection of sayings attributed to Islamic figures, particularly from the Shiite tradition. Can we really trust ChatGPT, though? Here’s what we can tell you: It’s a lovely example of Arabic writing and will serve as a good example of the real thing.
