Ebn-e Khafif of Shiraz is considered one of the highly effective Sufi Sheikhs among his succeeding Sufi orders. The presence of his numerous sayings in Sufi sources and frequent references to his Sireh (way of life), which led to the completion of his hagiography, demonstrates the influence of his personality and views on moderate Sufi societies. The study of the essays and tracts ascribed to him have since long been in the focus of attention and mostly amended and published. At the Mar’ashi Library (Qom) there is an Arabic treatise that has not been identified as yet. When examining the text of the treatise and comparing it with other surviving works of Ebn-e Khafif, it became clear that we were dealing with an authentic and important manuscript of the Ketab al-eqtesād (book of economics). The sequence of attributions mentioned in the beginning of this manuscript is indicative of the high status of this work among the Shaikhs after Ebn-e Khafif. Finally, some of the differences between the Mar’ashi manuscript and the two MSS used by Florian Sobieroj, redactor of the Ketab al-eqtesād, will be discussed.
