Rawd al-Manazir fi 'Ilm al-Awa'il wa-al-Awakhir', ("Garden of the Sights of the History of Antiquity and Modernity"). This work details the history of Halab ; specifically the talks ibn Shihna held with Timur as the representative of the scholars of Aleppo (Halab) after Timur's conquest of Aleppo in 1400 Common Era. These records are important in terms of Timur's discussion with scholars, which has been discussed for centuries in relation to the conception of conquest and management in Islam.
Hence, Rawd al-Manazir is the first and most important source of the transfer of this interview. As Timur did in other cities he had conquered, he asked some questions to the Aleppo scholars. There are three main issues that he has put up here. The first question is that those killed by the two sides who fought (Aleppo and Timur's troops); had they reached martyrdom? The second question is the situation of Sayyidina Imam Ali, Amir al-Muawiya and Yazid. The third question is whether or not it is permissible to curse Amir al-Muawiya and Yazid.
