Collected Works of Nana Asma'u, Daughter of Usman 'dan Fodiyo (1793-1864)
Nana Asma'u Bint Usman 'dan Fodio, a nineteenth-century Muslim
scholar, lived in the region now known as northern Nigeria and was
an eyewitness to battles of the largest of the West-African jihads

history, law, mysticism, theology, and politics, and was heavily
influenced by the Arabic poetic tradition.
