Ancient Manuscript Review 152 : Antique Arabic Legal Document 1306AH ( 1888CE)

This is I believe a legal document written in Arabic. There is an embossed seal on top page and a dated inked seal just on the top of the first line. The date written in Arabic 1306 AH which is equivalent to 1888CE . I couldnt decipher the content which is written in Riqaah script in black. I dont remember the origin of this document probably Egypt.
I dont have much information of this kind of manuscript and its writing tradition. I need to do more research on this manuscript and will update this entry later.
