Errata for The Beginner’s Gift

Salam

Please note the following errata for “The Beginner’s Gift”, as you are aware the main text is repeated twice in the book, thus the mention of two page numbers for one passage.

  • p.13/40: “minor ritual impurity” should read as “ritual impurity”
  • p.17/54:”It is disliked with a bone, dung and the right hand” should read “It is disliked with a bone, dung, food and the right hand”
  • p.21/70: “So if a quarter of a man’s knee” should read as “So if a quarter of man’s thigh”
  • p.29/97: “Wrapping a waist cloth” should read “buttoning up”

Wassalam
