Ḥadīqat al-aqālīm is a historical, geographical and biographical work composed ca. 1192/1778 to 1196/1782. Among other things, it contains a description of “the terrestrial globe, its inhabited quarter, and the seven grand divisions of the latter,” geographical details and historical information related to what is now India, notices on prophets and kings, and the author’s account of contemporary events. While Āmīn Aḥmad Rāzī’s Haft-Iklīm is considered to have been Murtażā Ḥusayn’s model for Ḥadīqat al-aqālīm, it is the latter that is regarded as a far superior work, perhaps the best of its kind, both in its accuracy and research. He died ca. 1210/1795.
