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)

At the evocation of Shaykh Abdul Qadr Mbacke, the forth caliph of Murids from 1989 to 1990 a shared sense stands: bitterness. The Murid community cannot depart from the feeling, conviction that it has been deprived too soon of a foster father so generous in favours, and benefits of all kinds.

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

An American View Point About Muridiyya

  It has been 15 years since I was first introduced to Muridism as a Peace Corps volunteer in Senegal. At that time I was based in a small village south of Ziguinchor, so I had little opportunity to meet any Murids, other than the Baaye Falls who begged on the streets of Dakar. I found them to be very intimidating with their large clubs and imposing stature. It was the stories of their drunkenness and self-flagellation that circulated among the young American volunteers, not the inspirational words of Shaykh Ahmadu Bamba or his courageous resistance to French colonialism.

HISTORY OF THE CELEBRATION OF KAZU RAJAB

  There are coincidences so fraught with significances and so rich in benefits of all kinds for humanity that we should see as signs of mercy from God. It is thus the coincidence of "Al Isra wal mihraj" (The night Journey and ascension of prophet Muhammad PBUH) and the birth date of Serigne Mouhamadou Falilou MBACKE (second Caliph of Sheikh Ahmadou Bamba from 1945 to 1968).
