Title from 'title page' (p.5).


"لما كان تأليف هذا الكتاب امرا ذا بال اي شان يهتم به وكلما هو كذلك تطلب فيه البدأة بالبسملة ..."


"قيل فالاول اخص مطلقا وفيه نظر اذ لو سلمناه يمكن تصادقهما وانفراد كل منهما فيكون كل منهما اعم من الاخر من وجه والله سبحانه وتعالى اعلم بالصواب واليه المرجع والمآب ولا حول ولا قوة الا بالله العلي العظيم وصلى الله على سيدنا محمد النبي الامي وعلى اله واصحابه وعلى سائر الانبياء والمرسلين وعلى آل كل وصحب كل والتابعين لهم باحسان الى يوم الدين وسلم [؟] وسلام على المرسلين والحمد لله رب العالمين"


"Scribal," triangular, reads "وكان الفراغ من كتابة هذا الشرح المبارك يوم الخميس المبارك خامس عشرين شهر رمضان الكريم من سنة سبعة وتسعين والف من الهجرة النبوية على صاحبها افضل الصلاة وازكى السلام وعلى اله"
