Notes:
The fragment deals primarily with the subject of prostration, the various types and their biblical sources. There is a digression dealing with the Rabbanites who raised the point that not all times are fitting for prostration.
See Abraham ben Moses ben Maimon: Kifāyat al-ʻābidīn / Nissim Dana [ed.]. Ramat Gan : Universiṭat Bar-Ilan, 1989, p. 160. This point is not raised in the polemic article there on this topic, ibid. pp. 147-183.
The author mentions the 6 places in the daily Karaite service in which the bending of the head is recommended.
