Abstract:-This article is an analysis of the contents of section ten (on the issues of reminding and exhortations) from the manuscript titled “Unveiling the standard practice from what it is not (among the views of scholars) on ten important issues,” written by Shaykh Uthman bn Foduye. The manuscript was written in Arabic language in the 17th century by a well known reformer of Hausa land. We therefore intend to highlight a section from its contents in English language for the benefit of English readers who may find Arabic language difficult to understand and also to the contemporary Da’wah scholars who do not know much about Shaykh Uthman bn Foduye and his writings. The manuscript is also useful for teachers and students of Islamic studies. The manuscript is divided into ten sections as follows: First issue: on aspect of belief both hidden and manifest. Second issue: On the authenticity of devotion without knowing what is obligatory from what is not (i.e. mandub, mubah, Sunnan and recommended acts) Third issue: On the exegesis of the Qur’an. Fourth issue: On the narration of Hadith. Fifth issue: On issues of publishing. Sixth issue: On the command to write down Hadith and other sciences. Seventh issue: On the issue of learning what exceed personal obligations. Eighth issue: On legal verdict. Ninth issue: On debate. Tenth issue: On reminding and exhortation. This article contained an analysis of what is contained in the tenth issue on reminding and exhortations. It is a very good work for all da’wah scholars and workers.

Keywords — Analysis, Manuscript, Reminding, Exhortations, Sokoto Caliphate.
