Al-Luhuf ala qatla l-tufuf (book)

(Redirected from Al-Luhuf 'ala qatla l-tufuf (book))

Al-Luhūf ʿalā qatlā al-ṭufūf (Arabic: اللهوف علی قتلی الطفوف) or al-Malhūf ʿalā qatlā al-ṭufūf best known as "Luhuf" is a book about the tragedies of the Battle of Karbala and the martyrdom of Imam al-Husayn (a). It is written by Sayyid b. Tawus al-Hilli (d. 664/1265). This book is one of the famous Maqtal books among Shi'a. Because the author wrote this book for the pilgrims of Karbala, the book is brief and does not contain complete chain of narrators, rather only that last narrator or the source of narration.
