Summary

The late Iraj Afshar was an erudite and illustrious scholar, gifted with encyclopaedic breadth of knowledge. His demise was a palpable loss to Islamic heritage scholarship. In recognition of his grand stature, Al-Furqān Islamic Heritage Foundation humbly dedicates this tribute in the form of an in-memoriam text, a publication serving as a reminder of his weighty contributions in the service of our civilisation, and his unique position in contemporary history—one worthy of praise, eulogy, and commendation.
The late Iraj Afshar—God’s Mercy upon him—was a rare scholar within a distinguished and learned company of scientists in the modern Islamic world. He was renowned as a historian, cataloguer, and expert in Persian manuscripts. He was also a biographer, author, and man of letters. In the discipline of Iranian studies, he is recognised as a credible and abundant source, well-respected in many Western and Islamic circles.
This book is a compilation of articles and studies written in Arabic, Persian, and English, authored by a number of his devotees and those recognising his favour. These works address the life and practice of the erudite, eminent scholar and historian, the late Iraj Afshar, as well as the science of codicology.
Within this book, the reader will find this renowned scholar’s bibliography, and select photographs, capturing distinct moments of his life.
