Abū al-Ḥasan Ajūdhanī, Miftāḥ al-nujūm

[Preliminary Entry] TheMiftāḥ al-nujūm is a translation of an Indian work on astrology named in Persian as Jhankā-bhawan, which is probably the Sanskrit work Jātakābharaṇam of Ḍhuṇḍhirāja. Abū al-Ḥasan Ajūdhanī made the Persian translation in nine chapters, seemingly from Hindi, around the first half of the 19th century.
