Le Livre des Haltes (Kitâb al-Mawâqif), Tome I

This first of three volumes comprising ‘Abd al Qâdir’s work contains 215 of the 372 original chapters. Based on the Dār al-yaqaza al-‘arabiyya (1966-1967) and on the manuscript of the Library of Alger, this translation addresses the work done so far by Michel Chodkiewicz and by A. Khurshīd.
