    Muridi Tariqah

    Best-known Sufi order in Senegal. Name comes from murid, referring to a postulant who seeks the path to spiritual knowledge. Founded in 1880s by Amadu Bamba M'Backe . Followers came into conflict with French colonialists in the 1890s. During the exile of the founder from 1895 to 1902 , his family and friends encouraged members of the order to cultivate peanuts and acquire property in both rural and urban settings. Ultimately M'Backe endorsed the cause of the French in World War I. Members of the order are encouraged by leaders to work hard, particularly in peanut cultivation, and to allow marabouts to carry out intercession on their behalf. Recently followers have taken an interest in learning the teachings of Islam and the heritage of the founder.
