Today we would like to acknowledge the power of the combination of the Qasaid (poetry) of Shaykh Ahmadou Bamba Mbacke and Dhikr Tahlil, which is La ilaha illa Allah (There is no God only Allah, or Nothing would exist if Allah did not create it). This is a declaration of faith that people make when they accept Islam. Many people recite this when they participate in sufi dhikr circles all over the world. Shaykh Ahmadou Bamba was a veracious writer and has been calculated to have wrote over 7.5 tons of poetry. There is a library in Touba, Senegal to prove this claim of which his copious writings are present.
What we are most concerned about sharing, is the phenomena attributed to the recitation of the poetry of Shaykh Ahmadou Bamba Mbacke and the recitation of La ilaha illa Allah. On several occasions there have been clairvoyant eye witnessings of the presence of heavenly host in the personage of angels. During the time of fervent recitation of the Qasaid of Shaykh Ahmadou Bamba and the spirited chanting of La ilaha illa Allah the angels would come to the dhikr and the mentioners (dhakireen) would sight the angels in the 4 corners of the room with flaming swords. For those that were unable to see the angels, many were able to feel the celestial fire of the angels emanated throughout the room. Sometimes some sensitives would faint due to the energy being so high for them. This has happened in two locations, of which the dhikr ceremonies have taken place in Touba, East Coast. For this we give thanks for the presence of the holy angels and we are grateful for the grace of the spiritual savant and erudite scholar Shaykh Ahmadou Bamba Mbacke.
This post is being shared, because we as humble talibe (disciples) of Shaykh Ahmadou Bamba would like people to understand the power of the poetry of Shaykh Ahmadou Bamba and La ilaha illa Allah. The combination gives the reciter an unbelievable amount of benefit, that will assist one in this world and the hereafter. Many people go through rigorous ascetic retreats to commune with the spirit and don’t reach their goal. Also we were given the pleasure of having the esteemed presence of Archangel Metatron. This holy Archangel is rarely mentioned in Islamic context and he came when we called him after reading the qasaid, Hisnul Abrar (the military fortress) and the famous poem Sindidi. He apperared in his giant form of which only his foot could fit in the room of worship in the edifice. After this time of visit he has come many other times to give healing and prophesy. For this we give thanks to Allah (The Most High).
The main point is that the qasaid and dhikr La ilaha illa Allah can by divine grace get potent results. We are not dabblers or conjurers, we worship for the pleasure of Allah in humility only. We are grateful for the gifts bestowed on us by the selfless efforts of Shaykh Ahmadou Bamba Mbacke. If you have the time please read about Shaykh Ahmadou Bamba. Anyone interested can leave a comment and we will make avalilable additional information on this subject. Djeridjeuf (thank you).
