About The Author

Shaykha Ruqayya Niass is one of West Africa's most renowned Islamic scholars. She was born on the night her father moved with his nascent community to Medina in the north of Kaolack (sine-Saloum) at the end of 1930. Named after Ruqayya, Prophet Muhammad's daughter, her father told her: "I named you Ruqayya—ascension—since I have never ceased to ascend in the Divine Real."

She learned the Holy Qur'an from her father's Mauritanian disciple, Mouhammad Rabbani. After committing the Holy Book to memory, she started learning Fiqh from her father, and Arabic grammar from Baye Ahmad Thiam (al-Ajrumiyya, Mulhat al-I'rab, Lamiyat al-Af'al) to later join her father's classes in al-Alfiyya, al-Ihmirar and al-Maqamat (assemblies of al-Hariri in the early fifties).

The Shaykha has since been a teacher of thousands of people in both the exoteric and esoteric sciences of Islam.
