About the Book

The Sheikh's vision was transcendental, for he composed this present work when he was a teenager at the request of his mother who asked him to write a prayer for her. (Mariama Jariatullah Bousso) Towards the beginning of the poem the blessings of Allah upon all of the prophets are invoked. Thus the supplication for their blessing is a blessing also upon the supplicant. Protection from hazards - that the Sheikh himself later had to endure by the hands of the French colonialists who sought to torture him- was also invoked. Further into the qassida, supplication for his mother is directly given, and as it is the primary human bond from the womb to the world, it is a blessing upon the disciple who supplicates thusly. The Ummah, community of Muslims, originates in the Um (womb); may we all give honor to our mothers and all future mothers, that their wombs be fertile with blessings to bring forth blessed people like Sheikh Ahmadu Bamba, R.A.

First Sentence

Bismillahi Rahmanir Rahimi Yallahu Bil Mustafa Sindidi Yallahu Wa Bikhalilika Ibrahima Yallahu O God! (I implore thee) by the blessings of Mustafa (The Prophet Muhammad) O God! And by the blessings of thy beloved friend Abraham O God!
