This manuscript titled Al-Ḥaqqu bi Al-Ḥaqqi fi Madḥi Sāḥib Al-Ḥaqqi, also known as Waka Al-Ḥaqqu (The Truth with the Truth in Praising the Truthful One) is a short pocket-sized book of poems, proclaiming the truthfulness and glory of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Waka is a generic name for poems eulogizing the Prophet, and various tags are attached to the particular one in question. This one is Waka al-Ḥaqqu. Written in Yoruba Anjemi, using the standard Mashriqi style of writing, the author, Al-Ḥājj Ibrahim as-Sufi opens with a concise introduction in Arabic, setting the stage for the poem. Then he goes on to rhapsodize about the truthful nature of Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah. Famous among the Yoruba Muslim communities, it is mostly chanted during prayer groups, Islamic functions, and other gatherings. Pupils in Islamiyya schools, women in their walimat, and men are all acquainted with the Waka al-Ḥaqqu.
