Khaldun refers to the numerous catechisms and creeds where the
caliphate is discussed, usually near the end. Cf., for instance,
al-Ash'ari's Kitab al-Luma', ed. and tr. R. J.
McCarthy, The Theology of al-Ash'ari (Beirut, 1953).
Muhammad b. Mubammad, d. 460 [1067/68]. Cf. GAL,
I, 268; Suppl., I, 473; C. Pellat in
Bulletin des etudes arabes, VIII-IX
The verses, however, are not by Ibn Sharaf but by
his contemporary Ibn Rashiq (see n. 23 to p. 10, above), who

Dhakhirah (Cairo, 1364/1945), IV 1,
134; Ibn Sa'id, El Libro de las
Banderas de los Campeones, ed. and tr.
E. Garcla Gomez (Madrid, 1942), p. lot; Yaqut,
Irshad, VII, 96;
al-Maqqari, Analectes, I,
131 f. Cf. also p. 470, below.
reference apparently is to Ch. XLV of the
Siraj al-muluk, which
deals with the relationship between ruler and army. See p. 122
of the ed. (Cairo, 1289/1872). For criticism of at-Turtushi, cf.
also 2:87, below.
