The word of its founder, Sheikh Ahmadou Bamba, speaks to the heart, to the soul, to the spirit, in short, to every human being. It indiscriminately addresses the poor, the rich, and the prostitute as the wise mystic, to the drug addict like the abstinent, in the context of the temple as well as the church.

By creating the path of Mouridiya, Sheikh Ahmadou Bamba gives the definition of the true jihad, this inner struggle against the carnal soul, to transform our vices into virtues.

His life is an example of non-violence and as he had no violence in him, no violence could reach him.
