The Sankore’ Institute of Islamic-African Studies International (S.I.I.A.S.I) is a non-profit, non-political educational institution founded for the sole purpose of researching into the educational, political, cultural and religious heritage of Islamic Africa. The primary area of concern is that part of Black Africa traditionally known as the Bilad ‘s-Sudan (The Lands of the Blacks). These lands include all the regions located south of the Sahara desert and north of the tropical jungles, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Red Sea. The purpose of the S.I.I.A.S.I is to elucidate and evidence the Islamic traditions which were born out of African nations such as Takrur, Songhay, Mali, Ghana, Kanem-Bornu, Wodai, Fur, Funj, Sokoto, Segu, Massina and the Mahdist kingdom of the Nile valley.  More>

    As-Salaamu `alaykum. Jazakullah khayr for this beautiful website mashallah `alayk.
    Do you have a PDF of Kitab Al-Wird without the footnotes? Basically, what I’m hoping to print is a smaller size print of the wird when traveling.

    If you have the time, check out my website which is devoted to the intersection of land, food, health, and Islam. http://www.tayibfarms.com

      What I can do is send you the wird with the commentary as a word file; and you could manually delete the footnotes leaving the the text to formulate as you wish. Remember, do not add anything to are take anything from the wird or you will end up losing the baraka of the original. I visited your site and found it very informative. In Africa these ideas can be actually implemented and replicated.
