AL-SARAQUST � , IBN AL-ASTARKUWI (PART II) The scenario of most of al-Maqiimät al-Luzûmïya by the Andalusi author al-Saraqusti (d. 538/1143)' is set geographically in the Middle East. A few maqdmdt take place in areas stretching from India2 and China3 in the Orient, to Qayrawan4 and TangierS5 in the Maghreb, but they are in the distinct minority.
