Translation of the colophon: "I finished drafting this abridgment by the help of God the Great King on Thursday noon, the twenty second of the blessed month of Ramaḍān, may we be granted in it, by our fasting and prayer, humility, submissiveness and the praying on His Prophet for whom the universe and space was created and on his family who preceded us in faith and on his companions who followed them graciously. The copyist is the poor sinner and rebellious, the poorest of God's creatures Zayn al-ʻĀbidīn ibn Ḥusayn al-Zawrī [al-Zūrī]. O God forgive him. The year 1234 [Seal: Zayn al-ʻĀbidīn]."
