Edinburgh University Press

This chapter presents the social history of the Tijaniyya, the second of the two main Sufi orders that are the dominant institutional forms through which Islam has been practiced in the region for more than a century. It considers the decline in influence of the Tijaniyya, particularly among the Futanke of the region, through the efforts of one of Umar Tall's most prominent descendants in the postcolonial period.

Keywords:   Islam, Sufism, Saints, Muslim, Sufi orders, Tijaniyya, Hamawiyya, Tall, Umar, Tall, Seydou Nourou, Mali, Nioro du Mali
