dc.description.abstractThe manuscript is a Mandinka Ajami exegesis of the popular Malikī jurisprudence (figh) text known as Al-Akhdarī, authored by the Algerian scholar, Abū Yazīd ʿAbd al-Raḥmān bin Muḥammad al-Ṣaghīr bin Muḥammad bin ʿĀmir. Similar interpretations and commentaries of Al-Akhdarī in Ajami exist in many Muslim communities in West Africa. The author of the Mandinka exegesis of Al-Akhdarī, like many other Muslims in the region, used Mandinka Ajami in order to disseminate the ethos and traditions of Islam among his people. His intention was to ensure that Mandinka readers understand Islamic jurisprudence in their own language so that they can practice their religion appropriately. From page 148 to 150, the author shows the Mandinka Ajami standard he uses in his work. The Mandinka Ajami writing standard that he proposes is currently one of the best available.en_US
