Senegal – Mystic leader

At the house of Cherif Assane Ndiaye in Guédiawaye, several Baye Fall and their wives and children live together as one family. There are portraits of Ibrahim Fall (background) and Amadou Bamba (foreground) everywhere; the Mourides worship Amadou Bamba as a saint. They do not say that Bamba was a prophet, but that ‘it would appear that he possesses a prophetic light and a divine secret, similar to what we read in the history of Prophets and their people’.
