MAWLANA IMAM CHEIKH TIDIANE CISSE
The world-renowned Islamic Scholar and Chief Imam of Medina-Kaolack, Senegal Grand Mosque, the Honorable Cheikh Tidiane Aliou Cisse. Cheikh Tidiane is also the Imam and spiritual leader of over 100 million Muslims worldwide. He inherited the mantle of leadership from his grandfather, Shaykh al-Islam al-Hajj Ibrahim Niass, who historically, was one of Islam’s most influential spiritual leaders of all time.
Imam Cheikh Tidian Cisse (b. 1955) studied Qur’an, Arabic and classical texts with both his father, Sheikh ‘Aliou Cisse, and his legendary grandfather, Sheikh Ibrahim Niass. He then continued his studies at Al- Azhar University in Egypt, studying Arabic and Usul al-Din (theology). Upon completing his studies in Egypt, he traveled extensively throughout Africa, the Middle East and America. He attended many conferences and participated in religious debates. He also managed to translate, edit and publish several important works, including Sheikh Ibrahim’s Kashif al-Ilbas.
Imam Cheikh travels extensively for the sake of spreading the Dawa of Islam.
In recent years there has been considerable attention to the social and political aspects of Islam around the world. Among the general public there is also heightened awareness about Islam and Muslim religious leaders in public life, not least with preoccupations with issues such as radicalism. However, most commentators usually ignore the rich intellectual and social production by African Muslims, which spans many centuries. In fact, many scholars of the west have little access to what is published in Arabic from African scholars and even less access to the history of Islam in Africa.
