Not to forget Shrivara's Kathaakautuka, a Sanskrit translation of Jaami's Persian romance Yousouf and Zuleikha, and of course "Ksemendra's" important Lokaprakaaza, which abounds in Islamic (mostly administrative) terms.

Ego ex animi mei sententia spondeo ac polliceor
studia humanitatis impigro labore culturum et provecturum
non sordidi lucri causa nec ad vanam captandam gloriam,
sed quo magis veritas propagetur et lux eius, qua salus
humani generis continetur, clarius effulgeat.
Vindobonae, die XXI. mensis Novembris MCMLXXXIII.
