Ancient Manuscript Review 159 : Antique Arabic Manuscript ( 1223 AH / 1808 CE) Al Falak / Astronomy

This is an Arabic manuscript on the knowledge of Al Falak ( Astronomy). The whole subject is about the location of the moon and what does it means at certain position to our daily life. It is undated but there are some dates on few pages as early as 1223 AH ( 1808 CE) remarking on the birth of some babies. Hence this mansucript should have been written earlier than this date. I acquired this manuscript from Diyerbakir, Turkey. No covers yet no missing pages.
