Notes:

This text elaborates the development of the movement of Iṣlāḥ and Irshād in Indonesia. This text was different from the text of the Tārīkh al-Irshād focusing on the life and career of Shaykh Aḥmad al-Shurkittī and his conflict with some Sayyid ‘Alawī.

Abushouk (2014) has said that the text has been produced in the form of lithographs and disseminated in Indonesia or Yemen. However, some scholars such as Affendi (1976) and Mobini-Kesheh (1999) categorize them as manuscripts (handwritten).
