This paper aims at illustrating the case of the manuscript Ṣanʿāʾ, Dār al-maḫṭūṭāt, Muṣṭalaḥ al-ḥadīṯ 216. The audition and reading certificates recorded in the manuscript inform us that one of the texts, a collection of ṭabaqāt by al-Nasāʾī (215–303/830–915), was studied in the last quarter of the twelfth century in the Umayyad Mosque of Damascus ( bi-Ǧāmiʿ Dimašq ). The presence of this text in Yemen leads us to examine the cultural and intellectual bonds linking the two regions and to contribute, indirectly, to the evidence of audition certificates delivered in Damascus in the period 550–750/1155–1349.
