dc.description.abstractThis manuscript is written in Arabic with extensive glosses in Kanuri Ajami. The book was originally written by ʿAbd al-Raḥmān al-Akhdarī. It is a well-known text on Islamic jurisprudence that students in madrasas and tsangayas study as part of their curriculum. In many instances, the author provides details and explanations on some grey areas in Islamic rituals and jurisprudence. The benefits of some rituals are notes in marginal glosses in Kanuri Ajami. The book is typical of a market edition, written in traditional ink and reproduced. It has nearly 50 chapters that cover themes such as monotheism, prophethood, relationships, purification of the heart and body, ritual prayers, fasting, and rulings on common mistakes in ritual prayers. Kanuri Ajami is used in interlinear glosses.en_US
