Original Authors  Ahmad b. Ibrahim al-Naysaburi

Publisher  Faculty of Theology and Religion, University of Oxford

The importance of the current work is noted in the fact that it is ‘the only
extant work in Ismaili literature that tackles a specific aspect of the dawa: a
normative guideline for Ismaili dias’ (p. 3). Since it was written by a member of
the Fatimid dawa, the Risala is without question a crucial eyewitness of how the
dawa was self-conceived.
