This manuscript is an unbound copy of Shurūt al-Ṣalāt (Arabic: Rules of Required Ritual Prayers), with extensive glosses in Kanuri Ajami. As the title suggests, it deals with one of the most important rituals in Islam—al-Ṣalāt (the five required daily prayers) as well as purification of the body and ablution. Written from a Malikī school perspective, the work discusses the conditions and requirements al-Ṣalāt. After a one-sentence introduction, like many foundational instructional materials on Islamic rituals, the main text in Arabic is in a larger font, while the Kanuri Ajami glosses are in a smaller font. The text has both marginal and interlinear glosses. It is a popular work on Islamic jurisprudence in northern Nigeria. It is 14 pages long and is not dated. The pages are numbered.
