Cheikh Mustafa Gueye Haydar(RA)is called Imamul Awliya. He received abundant grace from his Lord. His writings are a testimony to the blessings that were bestowed upon him, overflowing with divine light. He was unique in his time. He entered in dairatul'awliya at the age of twenty three. Cheikh Mustafa was silent and hidden, immersed in the proximity of his Lord. Indeed, one can be transformed by a touch, a look, or a word from such a profound servant of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala)
May Allah grant him Jannatul Jalal with all those who love him . . . Ameen



Shaykh Harun Al-Faqir
Shaykh Harun was born on the 9th of April, 1949 in
Thies, Senegal, West Africa as well. He is the nephew
of Shaykh Mustafa Gueye Haydar and the first
grandson of Shaykh Sahib Guaye Haydar. He was
spiritually nurtured and guided by Shaykh Mustafa
from an early age. After witnessing several karamat
(miracles) at the hand of Shaykh Mustafa, and with
the strong encouragement of his noble mother, he
soon decided to abandon his career as a ship engineer
and endure whatever training was necessary to attain
what he could of the lofty spiritual stations of his
teacher.
After many years of riyadha (disciplined spiritual training)
and the pursuit of self purification he was blessed with
becoming the flag-bearer of his teacher Shaykh Mustafa’s
blessed tariqah (Sufi order). In addition to the many things
he learned from him is the science of the asrar (hidden
secrets) for which he is sought from far and wide until this
day. In Addition to Shaykh Mustafa, Shaykh Harun also
learned a great amount from the well-known Shaykh Abdul-
Waffa Diallo of Sefadu, Sierra Leone. This Shaykh was
one of the last Muqaddams of Shaykh Amala of Mauritania.
Shaykh Harun first traveled to the US in 1994. After
teaching for a short while in the Muslim community of
Charleston, South Carolina he moved to Moncks Corner,
about 30 miles northwest of Charleston, where he founded
Masjid Almuhajirun Wal-Ansar As-Sufiyyah. When he
opened the mosque there were virtually no Muslims in the
little town. He single handedly began converting people to Islam and continues to this day, with over 100 people regularly attending the mosque
regularly and visitors coming from all over the world. In 2002 he opened the Fuqara
International Islamic Academy for the memorization of the Qur'an in Dakar, Senegal.
The school has become the second center from where he teaches while he has other
centers and many pupils in several different states and countries.

Sheikh Ibrahim Niasse has left a legacy of millions of followers around the world. He is known as one of the most prolific Islamic revivalists of the 20th century. Born in 1900AD in the village of Tayba Ñaseen near Koalack in Senegal, the sheikh’s life had a major affect on other people’s lives, and continues to do so even after his death in 1975.
He is the most influential leader of the Tijaniyya sufi spiritual order after the founder Sheikh Ahmed Tijani himself. Sheikh Ahmed Tijani (1737-1825) prophesised that there would be a leader in the future who would be the owner of a ‘spiritual flood’, when many people would convert to Islam and also be initiated into the Tijaniyya Tariqa (path). Millions have accepted that Sheikh Ibrahim Niasse is that person. His followers spread out of Senegal to Gambia, Nigeria, Mauritania, Ghana, Ivory Coast, South Africa, China, Indonesia, France, United States and the United Kingdom.
Niasse and Politics
Although an Islamic spiritual leader, he was also well known on the world political stage, he was involved with politicians that were at the forefront of Africa’s independence revolutions, such as Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Ahmad Sekou Touré of Guinea and Gamal Abd al Nasser of Egypt. He campaigned for peace and justice for the oppressed.
His charismatic speeches where platforms to voice his concerns for the plight of Palestinians at the hands of Israel and many other issues such as racism and women’s rights. He believed that all women should have a chance to be educated to the highest level. He advised women to “compete with men in knowledge”.
The sheikh's education was highly regarded, as a youth he had memorised the entire Quran (Islamic holy book). He learned the Islamic sciences through traditional methods from his father al-Hajj Abdullah Muhammad Niasse and Abdur-Rahman b. al Hajj-Alawi (Mauritania). He spoke Wollof and Arabic fluently.
He was appointed as the Vice President of The Muslim World League in Saudi Arabia. Sheikh Ibrahim had strong affiliations with The World Muslim Congress of Karachi, Pakistan, The High Council of Islamic Affairs and the Islamic Research Assembly in Egypt. Following a trip to Cairo, Egypt, in 1961, he became widely known as “Sheikh al-Islam” after having led the Friday prayers in the prestigious Azhar mosque.
Books
He wrote seventy-five books during his lifetime and many many poems. He wrote about Islamic-sufi spirituality and how to get close to and know Allah. Most of Sheikh Ibrahim's literature was written in Arabic. In 1920 he wrote a one hundred and twenty one verse poem called 'The Spirit of Good Morals' The poem praises The Prophet Muhammad and advises people on good manners particularly people within the Tijaniyya Sufi Order. There are now translations of some of his works into English.
A brand new city developed near Koalack around the sheikh and his disciples. Now it is called Madinah Baye (City of our father). He built a grand mosque which millions of his followers visit every year. Disciples from around the world come to study Islam there and become noted scholars by the time they leave.
Madinah Baye
Sheikh Ibrahim Niasse has taken his place in history as a major saint of Islam. Throughout West Africa you will see his picture everywhere you go. Countless songs and poems have been composed about him. On a visit to the UK in 1975 he died in St Thomas' Hospital, London. His tomb is in Madinah Baye, Senegal.
