dc.descriptionProvenance / Custodial history: The current owner inherited the two poems from his grandfather, Ibrahima Marena who lived in Madina Alpha Sadou in the region of Kolda.en_US
dc.description.abstractContains a collection of three poems written in Mandinka Ajami. The first two are copies of the original poems authored by the most famous Mandinka Ajami poet, Sitokoto Dabo. In the first poem, the poet discusses his life, his wishes for his family, and praises God for having fulfilled his prayers. The second poem deals with the rules of inheritance in Islam. It is designed to help people avoid errors and injustice as a result of improper distribution of the properties of deceased people among their heirs. The poet describes the requirements and rights of each heir. The third document is a sermon written by the owner, Souleymane Marena. According to him, it was written in Mandinka Ajami because he realized that though many scholars deliver their sermons in Arabic, local audiences do not speak or understand the language.en_US
