Welcome to Mbacke Fall Daara! We are an International Islamic Community headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. We love Classical & Golden Age Islam. We are a close-knit and learned community dedicated to “preserving and promoting” the “message and methodology” of Muhammad Rasullulah (saw) as taught by The Mujaddid Khadim Rasul Cheikh Ahmed Bamba Mbacke.
Sokhna Mariama is our psychologist in training and works as a domestic violence counselor. She serves as a teacher in Mbacke Fall Daara for young ladies and women teaching about the critical role women have played in Islamic History and the contributions they have made to Islam. She also teaches women the basics of Fiqh and about the Life of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).
Serigne Mustafa Mbacke-Fall
Serigne Mustafa Mbacke-Fall is Director of Mbacke Fall Daara’s Futuwwah & Muruwah Program (manhood training and spiritual chivalry) for brothers. He is responsible for implementing “The Traumatized Women’s Workshop” (for men only) where brothers learn how to interact with women who have experienced the following:
- Raised without fathers or sufficient male role models.
- Molested, sexually assaulted, or raped by family members or outsiders.
- Who entered relationships/marriage prematurely and as a result suffered psychological, emotional, sexual, physical, or financial abuse.
He believes firmly that an institution that serves the people is one that is both prevention and solutions based in it’s social programs. He is also preparing to translate the works of Khadim Rasul Cheikh Ahmed Bamba to make them available for English speaking people.
“Yaa Zanabu” is the first mother of the original daara started in Illinois. Although she is no longer with us (May Allah be pleased with her) she set the example for us to follow. She worked as an air traffic controller and was an ardent student of the teachings of Cheikh Ahmed Bamba. She took many into her home and allowed them to learn and stay when they had no place to go. She fed members and visitors in the daara. She had a voracious appetite for reading and wrote newsletters addressing social issues of the community and African-Americans in general. She encouraged education and personal growth. She was no non-sense and put her money where her mouth was buying members gifts for Ramadan and funding annual events. She was a Muslim woman of the highest caliber and we are blessed to still follow the example she set for us before her departure of this earthly life.
