This day of September 5th marks a very symbolic date in the history of Senegal and particularly its course of Islam. In September 5, 1895 the French council, highest ruling authority of pre-independent Senegal, had convoqued all Muslim guides, rulers who threatened the French government along their strategies, vision and politics. Among those religious guides was, of course, included Shaykh Ahmadu Bamba.

French national archives have related in details the list of all religious guides, traditional leaders who could be a threat to the establishment of the French colonialism.

At the council, the French authorities proposed the following:
- either strictly follow the forced/proposed plan of the French government by signing a treaty
- exile or war declaration for all the recalcitrant

Shaykh Ahmadu Bamba was assigned the number 4 and room 4 in the governor's compound. When he was called upon to be interviewed, he entered the council room with his prayer rug and kettle's ablution (wudu). He laid down the rug, faced the Qibla, renewed his wudu and offered two rakka prayers. That action of worship really pissed the French authorities which confirmed the information which the secret agents revealed: this shaykh is a trouble maker and challenges the secular order. He was forced, like all other Shuyukhs, to sign the treaty/agreement. He requested to have a new pen by affirming that he won't use a pen which had written lies and falsehood. On top of that he wrote a nice verse which says:

Shaheedtu bi anna laaha rabboul haqq
Wa annal Ahmadou Rassulul haqq

"Allah is the Lord of Truth and Muhammad (Peace be upon him and family ) is the Prophet of truth".

The Shaykh was locked back in his cell with a hungry lion that was later tamed by Allah’s will. He was further sentenced to go to exile in Gabon in order for his teachings to be forgotten and his schools and followers to scatter around.

May Allah reward the shaykh for his stance of Islam through a non-violence, but yet a successful Movement.

Al-Quran

Surah 8. Al-Anfal, Ayah 30



وَإِذْ يَمْكُرُ بِكَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لِيُثْبِتُوكَ أَوْ يَقْتُلُوكَ أَوْ يُخْرِجُوكَ ۚ وَيَمْكُرُونَ وَيَمْكُرُ اللَّهُ ۖ وَاللَّهُ خَيْرُ الْمَاكِرِينَ



And (recall) when the disbelievers were conspiring against you to hold you as a captive, or to kill you, or to expel you.

They were planning, and Allah was planning, and Allah is the best planner
