Notes:

This is a ḥizb, credited with great supernatural power  (a litany used for worshipping God), which is attributed to Abū al-Ḥasan al-Shādilī (1196–1258). A copy of this manuscript contains a Malay interlinear translation. A Malay introduction on the first page urges one to perform two rakā‘ah prayers and a reading of sūrat al-fātiḥah before reciting this baḥr. It reads as follows: …adapun tatkala hendak mengamalkan dua ini, hendaklah sembahyang dua rakaat uṣallī rak‘atayni lillāhi ta‘ālá allāhu akbar, maka itu maka dibaca fatihah akan empunya dua ini, artinya Shaykh Shādhilī, sesudah itu hadarahkan kiranya kita.
