dc.description.abstractThe manuscript is a copy of a divination manual in Mandinka Ajami. Divination is popular in Muslim Africa. It is known in Senegambian Mandinka communities as Ramuloo (from Arabic: Khatt al-Raml). Muslim religious leaders regularly offer divination services to people (Muslims and non-Muslims alike) who want to learn about various aspects of their future or find solutions to their anticipated social challenges. The manuscript consists of several sections. The start of each section is marked with words in a box. Several versions of this manual have been found in different archives of Mandinka scholars.en_US
