A slave and scholar, Omar Ibn Said led an exceptional life


Omar Ibn Said spent much of his life as a slave on a Bladen County plantation, but some claimed he was reared as a Muslim prince in Africa.

The deeply religious man lived a life of celebrity, the subject of national newspaper and magazine stories despite his lowly status in the antebellum South.

Said (who last name also is spelled Sayyid, Saeed and Sa'id) is believed to have come to the United States in 1807, shortly before the foreign slave trade ceased.

SHAYKH ABDU QADR MBACKE FOURTH CALIPH OF MURIDIYYA (1914-1989)

The City of Raleigh, NC has proclaimed August 9 as Sheikh Ahmadou Bamba Day.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

Peace be upon the prophet Muhammad (saws), his family and companions

 

At this critical time where so many false accusations, wrong interpretations and negatives attitudes motivated by worldly gains and political retributions, are tarnishing Islam and twisting its universal message, it behooves us Muslims to speak up and have a word in order to explain clearly Islam’s positions regarding issues such as: Peace, love and Mercy towards our kinsmen and humankind.
