Biography

From the way in which his name is given in ms. NU/Falke, 446, it would appear that his father and his great-grandfather at least were “imams of Kano”, but his genealogy does not quite tally with that given by Paden (loc. cit.) for the Hausawa imams of Kano. MS NU/Falke, 444.1, states that the nisba al-Marwazī relates him to Maroua in northern Cameroun.
