dc.descriptionProvenance / Custodial history: This manuscript is owned by Alhaji Bashir who was born and raised in Damask in Borno State in northeastern Nigeria. He is a graduate of the University of Maiduguri, and has a Bachelor’s degree in Linguistics. He said that his interest in Kanuri Ajami, coupled with his background (being Kanuri himself and a linguist), has motivated him to develop a collection of Kanuri Ajami texts. Alhaji Bashir has extensive Islamic knowledge and currently works for the Borno State government.en_US
dc.description.abstractThis 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.en_US
