Maḥfūṭ Ibn ʿUzayza (or ʿ⁠Azīza) that was popular among Imāmī scholars of al-Ḥilla until the ninth/fifteenth century. The present study discusses the scarce available data about Sālim b. Maḥfūẓ and the reception of his K. al-Minhāj, and it includes an editio princeps of the portion of the work that is preserved in MS Malik 1650.
