About the Article

“Divine strength and mercy descends with the mentioning of the awliyya…Verily the awliyya of Allah ta`ala are the doorways to His mercy. For whoever raps on their doors with sound belief and pure acceptance, will have these gates flung open for him and he will
enter and attain success in all that he desires.” It is with this in mind that we should endeavor to acquaint ourselves with some of the virtues of our Amir’l-Mumineen and mujaddid, Shehu Uthman Dan Fuduye’, may Allah be merciful to him and cause us to
inherit his stations.

What I can say about him is brief, but contains the good of this world and the Next. He, the Shehu was born in the town of Marrata, Niger on Sunday the last day of Safar, 1168 (December 15, 1754). He was a descendent of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace through his maternal grandmother. Like the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace; he had his first great spiritual opening at the age of 40 and some months. Like the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace; he made the hijra at the age of 50.

Like the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace; he was given the oath of allegiance and jihaad. Like the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace; he was given victory and established Islamic sovereignty. And finally, like the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace; he was blessed to pass away from this world’s life at the good age of 63.

Wazir Abd’l-Qadir ibn Gidadu; Anis’l-Mufeed
