Much of what is known about Sīdī Mahmūd has been derived from traditions of the Khalwatiyya Sūfī order that inherited his mantle in Aïr. Because of the known connection between Jibrīl and Uthmā and this Sūfī order, all that is known about Sīdī Mahmūd came late to Hausaland via recent Khalwatiyya teachings and devotional works. This chapter discusses other principal sources whereby ideas of Sīdī Mahmūd, his main doctrines, and certain biographical details about him reached Hausaland.

Keywords:   Sīdī Mahmūd, Khalwatiyya, Jibrīl, Uthmā, Hausaland
