Origin of Magal:
Cheikhoul Khadim has left this world in 1927 when it was his first Caliph Sheikh Mouhamadou Moustapha undertaken to perpetuate the colossal work undertaken by his father. Such a roadmap Serigne Touba dictated what to do. Thus, in presence of Serigne Massamba, he asked Sheikh Mustafa consolidate the entire community at the time Mouride he said. In 1937 Sheikh Mustapha asked after Serigne Massamba Mbacke was told he was away, he said they go to fetch him. The mission caught up in Louga.
With the arrival of Sheikh Massamba, Sheikh Mustapha Mouhamadou exhibited a paper which he showed him. On this paper consigned Serigne Touba Magal's recommendation as follows: during the night, the Prophet (PBUH) companions, the angels those nearest (Mukharaboun) as they did back in 1927 to celebrate this event Touba until morning. Blessed is he who will do with them because to Touba in the morning they will have the redemption of all their sins.
The Magal Darou Khoudoss is held annually on the 20th day of lunar month Tamkharit. The first official celebration has been effective in 1937. The said celebration has been interrupted in 1945 following a request of the colonial administrator at the office of Sheikh Mustafa because that date coincided with the holding of elections. From 1945 to our days no further interruption was noted on the organization.
