Manuscripts are produced for academic instruction and for the preservation of and as sources of knowledge. In Lamu, one of the prominent centers for Islamic religious learning in East Africa, scholars have produced many manuscripts. One of the famous scholars to have written a number of manuscripts is Muhammad Sayyid Ali Badawy (1925 – 1979) of whose one of his known manuscript is in the area of mīrāth (Islamic inheritance) titled: Īḍāh Al-Ghawāmiḍ lil Mubtadī fī 'Ilm Al-Farāiḍ (Clarifying ambiguities for beginners in the science of inheritance). This study is an English translation of the doctrines of ‘Awl (proportionate reduction of shares) and Radd (redistribution of shares), the concepts of al-Khunthā (the hermaphrodite), al-Mafqūd (the missing person), al-Ḥāmil (the expectant mother) and Ḏāwī al-arhām (the distant kindreds) as used in the manuscript to explain, clarify and pass knowledge on the laws of mīrāth. To understand better the knowledge on the concepts, this study analyses how the use of ikhtilāf will assist in clarifying, explaining and analyzing the laws of mīrāth found in the manuscript. While Muhammad Sayyid Ali Badawy correctly explains doctrines of ‘Awl and Radd and the concepts of al-Khunthā, al-Mafqūd, al-Ḥāmil and Ḏāwī al-arhām in the distribution and allocation of shares of inheritance, he does not consider the differences of opinions and diversities in explaining these concepts in general but also in particular deploying them to solve problems of inheritance. The study recognizes this as a major shortcoming, and therefore uses the notion of ikhtilāf (difference of opinion) to elaborate on the diversities of opinions from other scholar’s views on the same. By analyzing the use of the concepts in Muhammad Sayyid Ali Badawy’s manuscript, this study uses ikhtilāf to provide additional dimensions, clarifications and applications by other scholars for further clarity in the use of these concepts, in order to avoid conclusions that are sometimes inconsistent with the actual diverse meanings of the concepts as used. This is a qualitative study that used oral interviews to collect primary data on the biography of the author of the manuscript, Muhammad Sayyid Ali Badawy, and the history of the application of the law of mīrāth in Kenya.
