It is a roll of honor, a merit list of pious women and it includes women of the Shehu's community some of whom may have been alive and well known to many when the work was written. The poem is one of a pair, the other being the Fulfulde version, Tindinore, (Work 10). Both were written in 1837 to bring to public notice a work by Muhammad Bello composed in 1836. Asma'u therefore produced these translations with a sense of great urgency, possibly owing to a scandal, the exact nature of which is not known. Between 1810 and 1835 very large numbers of non-Muslim women were captured and put into concubinage by Muslims. Some of them were knowledgeable about forbidden cults like bori. Others may have been former leaders of such cults, yet they all shared with wives the responsibilities of bringing up the new generation. 1091251 ~ 1835 68 20 21 22 23 24 Boyd & Mack/The Collected Works ofNana Asma'u And let us fear God, and yet thank Him.
