The colophon of this manuscript has a later attribution to 'Abd al-Qadir al-Husayni. He is recorded by Qadi Ahmad as one of the four famous scribes of Shiraz (V. Minorsky (trans.), A Treatise by Qadi Ahmad son of Mir-Munshi, Calligraphers and Painters, 1959, p. 67). For another work by him see David James, After Timur, The Nasser D. Collection of Islamic Art, 1992, cat. no. 47). There are over 17 recorded manuscripts by him, many in Indian and Ottoman libraries though none are dated.
