This undated manuscript is a complete copy the Arabic work by Shaykh ʿAbd al-Bārī al-Rafā‘ī al-ʿAshmāwī, which is explained using Kanuri Ajami glosses by Goni Abubakar Koloma. The book is among the most well-known, well-read and most-cited authorities on Islamic rituals in northern Nigeria and West Africa. Considered more advanced than Qawā’id and Al-Akhdarī, Al-ʿAshmāwī is popular among clerics and students of Islamic jurisprudence. Like Al-Akhdarī and other similar books on Muslim rituals, this text contains many chapters dealing with the significance of good intent, purification of the heart, body, and the environment, ablution and ritual prayers, requirements of ritual prayers, factors that invalidate ritual prayers, and common mistakes in ritual prayers and how to correct them.
