BBC Documentary on Senegal’s Mouride Brotherhood

In Islam, accountability is very important. That’s why we are sure that at the end, everybody will realise that the true Islam, the real practice of Islam is here, in this sub-Saharan Africa, where they think that we are nothing, where we were colonised and considered as nothing. That’s where the light, the pure light of Islam is going to develop and irrigate the world.

These are the words of Cheikh Sene of Bambey University in Senegal, speaking to the BBC’s Crossing Continents programme about the country’s Mouride Brotherhood. The whole programme (which includes input from Youssou N’Dour about his 2005 Egypt album) can be listened to here.
