A Poem on Sufic Technical Terminology

janna3This excellent poem by the mystic and sage Shaykh Abd’l-Qaadir ibn Mustafa ibn Muhammad at-Turudi, who was famous as Dan Tafa, was composed when he was merely 17 years old in 1236 A.H. (1821 C.E.). It is a poem, or song regarding the meanings of the technical terminologies of the People of tasawwuf.

It is a poetic achievement, not only testifying to the extraordinary linguistic skill of this young African sage, but it also demonstrates the high level of spiritual attainment that he had attained just four years after the death of his grandfather, the Amir’l-Mu’mineen and reformer Shehu Uthman ibn Fuduye’, may Allah be pleased with both of them.
