This manuscript is a collection of Ibn ʿĀshur's poems in Arabic with extensive explicatory glosses in Kanuri Ajami. The Arabic text is written in a regular poetic style. This text is one of the famous works on Islamic jurisprudence, especially in the Mālikī School. Considered by most as an intermediate mid-level work on classical Islamic education in Nigeria, the text is a collection of poems addressing rulings on various forms of Islamic rituals. The text includes an introduction to the work, details on the kinds of ritual purifications necessary before engaging in spiritual rituals, ablution, required prayers, fasting, alms giving, and pilgrimage. Similar texts with glosses in Kanuri, Hausa, Fulfulde, and Tamashek exist. The text has no publication date. It is numbered. It is a complete unbound copy and is in good condition.
