Thus a customary law (`orf) has there sprung up side by side with the official sacred law (shari`a), much to the displeasure of the mollahs.
We do get the occasional attack of orf, which results in a scabby lesion around the mouth of a lamb.
Suckling lambs with orf lesions may be disinclined to suck and ewes with sore teats may not let their lambs feed.
The lesions of orf are painful and cause much distress, particularly to ewes and suckling lambs.
