This site is dedicated to the two legacies of scholarship and learning which have been handed down to us by our noble predecessors. They are the Madani tradition and the Timbukti tradition. Madani tradition here means the transmitted knowledge of the Amal of Madinah while Timbukti tradition here means the traditional method of teaching and transmitting the Amal of Madinah which was developed in the city of Timbuktu, Mali and which eventually spread throughout West Africa.

With the help and permission of Allah, It is our goal to establish this site as a  source to obtain  knowledge which has been transmitted to us from these two great traditions.

The best way to used  this site is to go to the sidebar menus and click on the subject you are interested in. Every discussion about that  subject that has appeared  on this site from the past or present will be displayed as a single category for your perusal.

A Word about the Translation Method Used on This Site

In regards to the small texts (مُتُون) which discuss matters of fiqh or those which explain the rules of Arabic grammar, we have intermixed the Arabic text with the English translation. This was done to facilitate easy step by step, line by line memorization for those who wish to do so.

We encourage the memorization of these text under the supervision of a qualified teacher. This should be done while taking into account that books don’t teach people, but rather people teach people. The books are our reference tools while the scholars are our instructors and guides to the correct usage of these tools.

We pray Allah that this site will be of benefit to those who are in need of knowledge and may Allah forgive us for any unintended  mistakes in this effort.
