Shaykh Uthmân Dan Fodio (1754 - 1817) is a mythical figure in the history of Islamic Thought in West Africa.
While his life and work have been widely studied, his work about Sufism is relatively little known.
The contribution to Sufism in the work of the Shaykh stands out at three levels: technical literature for internal use for murids; texts describing his experiences and spiritual initiation, and, finally, the texts of controversy and speculation between Sufism and other Islamic doctrines.
This book traces, through unpublished manuscripts, the life and work of this great mystic, "al-Mujadid" (the Renovator), as he is known in West Africa.
Seyni Moumouni is a teacher and researcher at the Institute for Research in Human Sciences at the University of Abdou Moumouni Niamey [Niger].
