Inilah Kitab Kafayat al-Ghalam Fi bayan arkan al-Islam wa-Sarwathah

Digital images of Inilah Kitab Kafayat al-Ghalam Fi bayan arkan al-Islam wa-Sarwathah, a text on the pillars of Islam, trade laws and inheritance laws in connection to Islam. It contains three texts: 1. Kitab Khafayat al-Ghalam about the five pillars of Islam; 2. Kitab al-Baya’, about trade laws; 3. Kitab al-Fara’idh about inheritance laws. Creator: al-Syekh Ismail Minangkabau Syekh Ismail al-Minangkabauwi.

Notes: A typographically reproduced text in black ink, unbound. The covers are missing and replaced by a thin brown paper. The margins of the book are torn. On the replacement cover we find a few notes and signature in Arabic script and the numbers 25-26/4 – 38 which could represent a date (25/6 April 1938). All are in blue ink. In the margins we find notes also in blue ink. It is stated that the inheritance law text was finished in Mecca. The collection of the three texts was printed at Mathba’ah Dar-ihyak al-Kitab al-‘Arabiyah. In Tuhfat al-Nafis, Raja Ali Haji noted that a certain Syekh Ismail al-Minangkabauwi from Simabu in West Sumatera brought the Naqsyabandiah brotherhood to Riau. It is unclear whether these Syekh Ismails refer to the same person.
