Serigne Moussa Ka
These materials were copied from the original by Serigne Mbaye Nguirane. According Mbaye Nguirane, he copied the materials from Serigne Moussa Ka over forty years ago during his three-year stay in Diourbel. Red and black ink are used in the material. The red ink is used for vowels and to highlight key words and phrases. There are insertions of Arabic phrases, which include prayers, quotations, and opening and closing formulae. The manuscript includes, among others, a tribute to Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba's brother Mame Cheikh Anta Mbacke (also known as Serigne Sidy Moukhtar Mbacke "Boroom Derem ak Ngerem," or Owner of Blessings and Wealth); and praises of Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba, his family (Serigne Fallou, Serigne Moustapha, Serigne Bara, Serigne Saliou, Serigne Massamba Mbacke, Elhadji Mbacke Bousso, Cheikh Anta, Sokhna Diarra Bousso, Cheikh Abdoul Ahad) and other prominent Murid figures such as Mbaye Absa, Abdou Lo, Djily Dial, Dame Lo, and Mor Seck. The material also includes prayers; discussions of the exceptionality and miracles of Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba and of the importance of tolerance in Muridiyya; and some prayers dedicated to the deceased children of Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba. Digitized on 17 July 2011. Due to the poor conservation condition and ink stains, some words may be hard to read.
