This section presents the English text of Advice for Callow Jurists and Gullible Mendicants on Befriending Emirs. ʻAbd al-Wahhāb al-Shaʻrānī begins by emphasizing that his book explains the conditions under which a mendicant may befriend an emir, and vice versa, as well as the appropriate code of conduct of each toward the other. He declares that he wrote it for “our gullible brethren” among the jurists, mendicants, and emirs. He goes on to enumerate his blessings which Exalted God has bestowed upon him regarding his relationship with an emir. Among such blessings is that he was to agree to befriend only an emir who respects him too much to send him any gifts or alms. The book concludes by discussing the etiquette of mendicants in befriending emirs and vice versa.
