VIDEO: Mass Climb Lamp Post With The Believe Of Been Blessed By A Ghost.
People celebrating Maulud which is a Sindhi form of poetry about Muhammad‘s life, with poems consisting of between five and ten verses climb lamp post because of a rumor with the claims the face of Sheik Inyass appeared on the surface of the light and they climbed the light pole to touch Inyass face.
Sheik Inyass was born in 1900 between the border of Senegalese and Kaolack and the border of Gambia. The son of Alhaji Abdullahi nyass. After his father’s death in Lewna Ñaseen in 1922, Shaykh Ibrāhīm’s elder brother, Muhammad al-Khalīfa, became his father’s successor or Khalīfa. The 22-year-old Shaykh Ibrāhīm spent most of his time farming in the family’s fields and teaching a growing number of disciples in the nearby village of Kóosi Mbittéyeen. Although Shaykh Ibrāhīm never claimed to be his father’s successor, due to his charisma and precocious knowledge, he gained a large number of disciples, and tensions arose between his disciples and those of his elder brother, Muhammad al-Khalifa.
In 1929, while on the farm in Kóosi Mbittéyeen, the youthful Shaykh Ibrāhīm announced that he had been given the Key to Secrets of Divine Knowledge, and thus became the Khalifa of Shaykh Tijani in the Tijaniyya Order, a position yet to be attained by anyone as of that time. Sheikh Ibrahim then declared that whoever wishes to attain ma’arifa, a level of Divine Certainty in the Sufi Order, must follow him. In 1930, after the prayer of ʿĪd al-Fiṭr (the end of the month of Ramadān), a fight broke out between Shaykh Ibrahim’s disciples and those of Muhammad al-Khalīfa The incident made Shaykh Ibrahim immediately decide to relocate with his disciples to a new place.
That evening, he set out with a small group of his closest disciples to find a new place to live, and the next day they established a new zāwiya in Medina Baay, a village that was later incorporated into the growing city of Kaolack. In the following years, the shaykh divided his time between teaching during the dry season in Madina Bay and farming during the rainy season in Kóosi Mbittéyeen. During the summer of 1945, he reestablished himself in his father’s house in his natal village of Tayba Ñaseen, rebuilding and reorganizing the village after a fire outbreak had destroyed much of it.
Shaykh Ibrahim’s fame quickly spread throughout the countryside, and most of his father’s disciples ultimately became his disciples in spite of his junior status in the family. Although his disciples remain a minority within Senegal, they form the largest branch of the Tijānīyyah worldwide. He died in 1975.
According to Adebimpe who shared the story on her Facebook page, condemning the act, she wrote;
“They think a dead man (Sheikh Ibrahim Niyas) has appeared on the light bulb, So they compete in climbing to touch his face supposedly to get a blessing from him- a man who died several years ago fa. This is not Islam. This is a pure and clear act of Idolatry. Anybody who dies in this kind of idolatrous sect will surely regret ever coming to this world.”
