The spirit ofthe work has been accommodated through attention to all versions, and also a close scrutiny of Infiiq al-Maisur by Asma'u's brother Bello. The ftrst version ofthis work was composed in Fulfulde by Nana Asma'u. Her brother Isa translated it into Hausa after her death as a tribute to her. Nevertheless it is well known in Hausa and Nana Asma'u is popularly considered to be the author. Another scholar, Abdulkadir, translated it into Arabic with the title Mqusafat ql_Sudan.273 The English translation given here has three sources: (1) the Fulfulde ajami version (Text A) from Waziri's library (i.e. by Asma'u); (2) the Hausa ajami version (Text B), also from Waziri's library (i.e. by Isa); (3) the English version by Aisha Ahmed (1981) which was made by using a Hausa roman version (Text C) which is also found in Bello Sa'id (1973). The ultimate source of Text C is not known. Texts A and B were rendered into Hausa roman by AlKali Sidi Sayudi and Muhammadu Magaji respectively, in Sokoto. Major differences in verse order between the Fulfulde and Hausa versions are discussed below in the Signiftcant Features section. In the appendix we have provided both the Fulfulde ajami (Work 20) and the Hausa transliterated ajami form (Work 51). The reader is welcome to examine these against the English translation, which represents our attempt to retain the intentions ofthe work through consideration of all versions.
