W.679, Two leaves depicting the Prophet Muhammad, Ali, and his sons Hasan and Husayn
These two leaves are Ottoman Turkish illustrations. One depicts the Prophet Muhammad praying at the Kaʿbah, and the other depicts the Prophet Muhammad, ʿAlī, and his young sons Ḥasan and Ḥusayn. The illustrations were executed in the eleventh century AH / seventeenth CE. They are presently mounted on the first and last leaves of an illuminated manuscript copied in nastaʿlīq script in 798 AH / 1396 CE by Abū Saʿīd al-Ḥusaynī.
