The material is a program description of an international gathering of Murid organizations and disciples written in Wolofal (Wolof Ajami). The document is written in Wolofal because it is the primary means of written communication among Murids. It describes various religious, educational, and cultural activities in the program, including speeches, instructions (ndigal), conferences, films, and discussions on three key Sufi tenets (tarbiyya, tarqiyya, and tasfiyya).The material provides information on the organizations that took part in the meeting such as ASEM (Association des Etudiants Mourides) based in France, and the key leaders who participated in it such as Serigne Cheikh Ahmadou Mbacke, son of Serigne Moustapha Mbacke; Serigne Sarr Diop, President of ASEM; and Serigne Saliou Salam, among others. Based on the events discussed in the material, it was likely written in the 1980s. Digitized on 13 July 2011. The document is in poor condition. Some pages are lost. The remaining ones have some stains and tears. Due to the age of the documents, some pages are hard to read, and the ink has faded away in some parts.
