-  Incipit: لحمد لله رب العالمين والصلاة وسلامه على خير خلقه محمد وآله الطيبين الطاهرين. قال الشيخ البارع نجيب الملة والدين السمرقندى تغمده الله برحمته: إن الواجب على كل ذي لب أن يتقرب إلى الله تعالى ويتوسل إليه بكل ما تيسر له من المقربات وأحسن الوسايل وأجود الذرايع بعد امتثال الأوامر والنواهي ما يعود إلى نفع المسلمين عامة ويرجع إلى دفع الأذى عنهم خاصة.
