Mbacke, Serigne Sidi Al Moukhtar

Serigne Sidi Al Moukhtar Mbacke has been the leader of the Muridiyyah Tariqa since July 2010. The tariqa was founded by the religious leader and mystic Amadou Bamba, who died in 1927 and was buried at the mosque in Touba, Senegal. Sidi Mbacke is the second grandson to inherit the leadership. It is estimated that over a sixth of all Senegalese are members of the tariqa.
