Al-Aqsa Mosque Library Collection of Historical Manuscripts [12th century-19th century]

This manuscript collection contains 119 Arabic language titles that span over several Islamic periods from the 9th century CE to the end of the Ottoman rule in Palestine at the beginning of the 20th century. Most of the manuscripts relate to aspects of the Islamic religion, but also cover Arabic literature, the Arabic language, logic, math and Sufism and provide a unique insight into centuries of Arabic culture in Palestine.

The numbers of pages of original material represent double pages, often librarians of islamic manuscripts use one number for every two pages.
