Abstract

The present article compiles and presents the textual legacy of the Sufi scholar Abū l-Qāsim ʿAbd al-Karīm b. Hawāzin al-Qušayrī (d. 465/1072), whose writings are especially significant for the fields of Islamic mysticism and theology. Every title that has been ascribed to Qušayrī is provided with an entry in which all known information is given; the contents are surveyed when possible, previous scholarly research concerning the text is noted, and the record of its publication or survival in manuscript is listed. The titles are organized alphabetically according to their respective English transliterations from the Arabic.
