The manuscript opens with an incipit page with illuminated headpiece (fol. 1b), and there are two illustrations (fols. 3a and 6a). The Qajar lacquer binding is decorated with floral motifs and is inscribed with verses attributed to Imām 'Alī ibn Abī Ṭālib. An ownership statement is present, and dated 1311 AH / 1893-4 CE, stating that this precious book was bought for his son, Maḥmūd Askānī, from a woman for 10 ashrafis (gold dinars) (fol. 6b).
