The Arabic Manuscripts in the collection of the School for Oriental and African Studies,
University of London, consists of manuscripts, including traditional Islamic disciplines as Tafsir,
Hadith, and Fiqh as well as works on mathematics, astronomy, medicine, falconry, archery,
and military equitation. A sizeable portion of the collection relates to Shi'ah literature, including
17 Isma'ili manuscripts of Indian provenance. The Shaikhi sect is represented by 37 tracts and
responsa by Kazim al Rashti. Some of the manuscripts are accompanied by a parallel or
interlinear translation in one of a number of languages such as Coptic, French, Italian, Malay,
Persian and Swahili.
