THE AUTHOR'S PREFACE
In the name of God, the Mer- '^.,. ^ru4 , 1 ,^ • , • this Thy ^^j 1 .,, ciful and Compassionate ! ui • tWork with [ '- ) blessing !Glory be to that God who has, out of a drop of fluid, created such avariety of creatures, rational and irrational ! ^ Adored be thatCreator, who has established such a variety of forms, statures, andvocal sounds among them, though their origin is the same pure, liquid,and genuine spirit !In praise of the Prophet,. Muhammad, A thousand salutations andbenedictions to his Sublime Holiness Muhammad Mustafa, the Chosen, — The Blessing and Peace of God be with him ! Salla-l-ldhu ""alaihi — through whose grace the sacred Koran descended from the Most High ! 2How inadequate is man justly to praise and eulogize Him ! Salutationand blessing also to His Com- panions and posterity !My object in composing the present work is this : I Ja'far Sharif,alias Lala Miyan, son of 'All Sharif, who has received the mercy of theLord ^ — of the Quraish ^ tribe born at Nagor ^ — may God illuminatehis tomb ! — pardon his iniquities and sanctify his soul ! — a nativeof Uppu* Koran, xcvi. 1-2. ° Ibid., xxvi. 193-6, liii. 4-6.' Marhum, a euphemistic term, meaning ' deceased ', ' one who hasreceived mercy from God.'* The Arab tribe to which the Prophet belonged.* Nagor, village of the serpent tribe (ndga-ur), now included in Nega-patam (Nagapathanam, ' town of the Nagas '), in the Tanjore District,Madras (I.G.I., xix. 3).Ellore *, have for a considerable time been in attendance upon Englishgentlemen of high rank and noble mind — May their good fortune evercontinue ! — and under the shadow of their wings have nourished both mysoul and body : or, in other words, my office has been that of ateacher of languages.Gentlemen of penetration used often to observe to me with the deepestinterest, that if a concise book were written in a familiar style, andin the genuine DakkhinI language,^ containing a full account of all thenecessary rites, customs, and usages observed by Musalmans, Europeanswould not only read it with pleasure, but would derive much usefulknowledge from its perusal. However, hitherto owing to want of leisurethis humble individual has not been able to undertake anything of thekind. But, in the present instance, at the kind request of a i^ossessorof favour and kindness, a man of great learning and magnanimity, a mineof humanity, a fountain of generosity, a just appreciator of the worthof both high and low, well versed in the mysteries of philosophy, aPlato of the age, in medicine a second Galen, nay, the HijDjDOcrates
