Product Overview

In Senegal, the Muridiyya, a large Islamic Sufi order, is the single most influential religious organization, including among its numbers the nation's president. Yet little is known of this sect in the West. Drawn from a wide variety of archival, oral, and iconographic sources in Arabic, French, and Wolof, "Fighting the Greater Jihad "offers an astute analysis of the founding and development of the order and a biographical study of its founder, Cheikh Amadu Bamba Mbacke." Fighting the Greater Jihad" also reveals how religious power is built at the intersection of genealogy, knowledge, and spiritual force, and how this power in turn affected colonial policy." Fighting the Greater Jihad "will dramatically alter the perspective from which anthropologists, historians, and political scientists study Muslim mystical orders.
