Q. 59:6-7

Dear Colleagues,

I'd be grateful for references to scholarship on Q. 59:6-7. It is used in the inscriptions in the Ibn Tulun mosque in Cairo (and many other sites in the medieval period). I'm particularly interested in how it relates to the sources and use of public moneys.

my thanks, Matthew Gordon
