It is the only of Shaykh Daud al-Fatani’s books to be printed with any regularly that had not previously been popular in manuscript form. Claims have been made in secondary literature that copies of the text were printed in both Mecca and Istanbul in the late 19th century, but no known copies exist in public repositories to confirm these claims.
