This manuscript is a complete originally bound copy of the Fulfulde Ajami version of the tafsir (exegesis) of Juz’u Amma, which is the last part of the Quran. This sub-unit is called “The short chapters” of the Holy Book and is one of the most well-known parts of the Quran. Students of the traditional Tsangayas and modern madrasas in northern Nigeria begin learning and memorizing the Quran from this portion. The Fulfulde Ajami manuscript of the tafsir was written in ink rather than with modern pens. The manuscript is not dated. The Fulfulde dialect used suggests that the author was from northeastern Nigeria, rather than northwestern Nigeria.
