The writers and historians were from the coastal countries, which is the region currently known as the State of Kenya and the State of Tanzania, for what they know about me because I possess many manuscripts and documents, British and Portuguese. When I decided to write the history of East Africa, I contacted the British Library in London and acquired from it a photocopy of the manuscript known as the Book of Salwa in the History of Kilwa. I began studying that manuscript as well as studying everything written about that manuscript by Arab and foreign historians. Those who were unable to explain what was stated in that manuscript, as the matter became confused for them.”

Secondly: the manuscript was old and this is evident from the date Copied by Abdullah bin Musabah Al-Sawafi by order of Sultan Barghash bin Saeed bin Sultan in the year 1294 AH corresponding to 1877 AD, and thus the manuscript was submitted three hundred and fifty years ago. And spoilage.. Fourth: Of the ten chapters of the manuscript, three chapters are missing and I was able to cover them from Portuguese documents. Fifth: What was written in the manuscript about the arrival of the Sultans of Shiraz to the African coast is a myth and the truth in contemporary manuscripts of the departure of the Sultan of Shiraz on that date..With the help of God Almighty, and with what I have of manuscripts on genealogy, the history of ancient Persia, and Portuguese documents, I was able to solve the confusion for historians and write the history of a kidney in the form of a true and documented historical narration.
