A poem written by Sëriñ Daam Ndiaye

English Translation of Page 1

Ninety-nine people recited the complete Quran
The people of Touba recite the complete Quran every day
The people of Rufisque brought two copies of the Quran
Cheikh Mor Lo of Thiaroye recited a complete Quran every day
Everyone mourned and wanted to bury too
On that day all the women and true Murids
Gathered and brought water to the other followers
Glory to God, glory to the Prophet, glory to Cheikh Bamba, glory to Cheikh Massamba Whoever works will receive Bamba’s reward Baye Demba Kane, Serigne Kader, and the people of Rufisque combined their efforts.
