  • Dieureudieufati s touba

  • Get ya facts right

  • Serigne Fallou dou fi dara. Cheikh Amadou Bamba Mbacke dou fi dara. Y'Allah mo fi Seuss.

  • Vive Sonko

  • Why not building hospital because we can pray anywhere

    • We have build an hospital already matlabul fawzayni touba you can check it and a university is under contraction you can check that online as well. this is just one of the projects. And the most important thing is the does not come from the government but. Form from donations { Hadiya} 😉🙏🏼 Pace and love

  • Correction 0:23 BIG MISTAKE Serigne Touba has passed away since 1927 the current Khalifa is Sheikh Mouhamadoul MOUNTAKHA Mbacke

  • They always see the mote in the eyes of others and not in their own. Always give their view on all subjects but have no view of their own greed & exploitation of others. Westerners are so hypocritical.

  • Imaging how Senegal would have be if this money wasted here, was used correctly at least building industries, colleges, hospitals, infrastructures and empower their youths.?? Wake up Africa Relgion was a scam.

    • @souza dee That's a mentality of Black Africans Islam is nothing but a cursed relgion Design to enslave pple in twentieth century shame.🤭

  • So good

  • Senegal peoples very leaving with God. I wish God bless you

  • For those who are pointing out senegal a stupid country for not building the list you made up. Please before saying a word do make sure if it's true or not. The same brotherhood is building its own university and for more of your information there are a lots of building coming out on earth. Ps: The Africa( poverty, war, hunger) you see on the media, is not the same the one( love, harmony and joy) , they will never show you.

  • I've never seen Al jazeera broadcasting something good about Africa, every time you spit on us but tho, we keep showing you that we are the main actor in the world movie which you are playing. Plenty of things to say about the middle East and Europe.

    • @Khalid Ibn Alwaleed that they have children, the country is poor etc were u not listening ? why dont they show us how France is keeping them in poverty and enriching themselves of their money.

    • what bad thing did they say?

  • Private secret Arab charities will now come and open up ‘centers’ where gullible people are brainwashed and a country destroyed.

  • Another terrorist training camp constructed

  • Abu Huraira Radi Allahu Anhu reported: The Messenger of ALLAH ﷺ said, “The most beloved of places to ALLAH are the mosques, and the most hated places to ALLAH are the markets.” Source: Sahih Muslim 671

  • Pet goat 2️⃣.... Showed the it getting tooken over!!

  • Bravo.

  • Mashallaha Allaha huakbar ameen Suma ameen

  • This is how they stay poor and undeveloped. They should be building schools, hospitals, roads, research centres, Infrastructure. Instead they waste precious money on buildings like this that have no benefit to anyone. The country has many of these religious places that no one goes too.

    • Only to welcome in the stankass arabs to conquer their lands and the arab breeds like African so they will take over by 2040

  • The people saying MashaAllah to this are stupid and pathetic! A poor country needs education, healthcare, more food and clean water. Not a Mosque!

    • @Zender Bender why are you trying to justify yourself to the uncle tom house slave with the name "Umar" a great name he is not worth having, who attacks islam and the masjids of Allah because he is brainwashed by white chrstian colonisers, and that's why he tries to please his white chrstian slave master by attacking islam and the masjids of Allah. the Senegalese didn't build their masjid for european tourists but for their own community to worship in

    • Very sad thing islam has used Africans for many years

    • @ata-ur rahman I'm not a filthy Muslim!

    • ata-ur rahman Preach brother. 👏👍

    • Little information is always destructive, this mosque also has a wonderful education centre which provides school and islamic education both. Update your information before criticizing your own family.. bro. Yes our Ummah is a family..

  • Allah hu akbar..May Allah shower his mercy on u

  • Why not build schools or a university or a hospital idk. Anything but this. This is slave mentality.

    • Omar Bojang your religion is a lie. Mohammed is a false prophet who was a pedophile. He created that cult in order to gain power.

    • @Book Worm you're an idiot.. and this how you disrespect your mum and dad at home.. your mentality and the way you perceive life are different from that of ours, you hold onto it...... like it would never end... But as for us, is totally a different thing...

    • Slaves 😔

    • Learn botany..biology....architecture and biochemistry....islam will only bring arabs and murderers who kill kids and women

  • What a waste of money in a poor country

    • @Zender Bender and still hasn't moved a inch in society im not European or brainwashed islaam is destroying and welcoming arabs in AFRICA for the good of arabs i would rid AFRICA of the arags if it was my choice

    • boog gang6 Do you live in your own little world? This country has been under dozens of Caliphates in history. Not everyone shares same mentality as you European colonialists.

    • Arabs will take this country by 2040 and then they will cry of killings and famine. sad they run to slave masters instead they will see what the arab wants for them

    • ahmed tawfik Arabia was even more poor once. Thank God in happiness and in Vain. It also houses a school and education centre for education.

  • Politicians have neglected the poor

    • Delon Thomas They are not politicians, it's a private NGO. The Mosque also houses a school for education.

  • Rascal you say children's made for beg to make mourin richer, rascal you have to some how to blame Muslim umma by showing masjid you missup your crooked stores,stop his for you good sake,stop blaming Muslim umma, already you channel kick from country you ziopig

  • It's a religion and culture that has failed. This is financed by arabs and that's how they spread extremism.

    • Stop spreading lies and get the facts As senegalese our faith is above on anything We finance our own mosques L Islam is our life

    • @Abraham Tsfaye very true bro my ppl are blind eyed to the arags

    • Arags will take over the country and westerners will be welcomed in to assist a genocide to kill off the ABORIGINES just like egypt and isreal.

  • .... don't have any food on the table, but want to build a $50 million building so people can prey on empty stomachs. Can't fix stupid.

    • ask France to stop forcing them to bank their money with them and then have to beg/borrow it back. Leave the people alone. Mind your bizness.

    • It's embarrassing and sad for blacks in AFRICA

  • stupidity. build a university instead

    • @Zender Bender why are you trying to justify yourself to the uncle tom racist bigot who hates on muslim and Arabs to please their white chrstian slave master!! the Senegalese didn't build their masjid for tourists but for their own community to worship in

    • boog gang6 They've already seen their women raped by white Europeans and their fathers and family kidnapped and sent to U.S. during transatlantic slave trade by radical colonial terrorist.

    • @Omar Bojang you'll see when your women are raped by some radical bullshit arab funded group IDIOTS

    • They'll get the picture when a arags start a jihad and famine and fair SKINNED people start taking over fools they already lost northern AFRICA now the heart idiots will be banished by 2040

    • @C. Lincoln go and tell your people that words... if told this is a Skype scraper no one would say such a word but because it's s house of ,Allah... You would say all kinds of nonsenses

  • Hope u guys don’t have oil lithium dimonds or anything else the usa wants

    • @Christian Taylor I agree that people should help each other more in Africa but what happens in Africa has nothing to do with the US. If you think China are their new slave masters then the US and the west are no role models. Why do people of African heritage have to go back to Africa?? Why can't the europeans go back to Europe and return the US to the native americans?? They are the invaders and unlawful owners of the country.

    • Africa has been a mess for a long time because you don’t take care of eachother. You murder your own people for power. The US buys commodities from you. It’s called trade. You have and still enslave more people than any other country. Your new master is China with those loans that are unplayable due to the high interest. If you hate the US so much you should take all your people back to Africa and leave the US and Europe. We’d all be happier

    • @Khalid Ibn Alwaleed You make a point. Even though there are false churches in Christianity, Christianity is not a false religion or concept. Islam is a false religion. The prophet Mohammed is a false prophet. You also forget to mention the Arab slave trade which was worse in brutality and deaths than the transatlantic slave trade. This led to the poverty and destruction in Africa before it was colonised by the west!

    • @Duke Temz typical muslim haters! always complain and whine and pretend to care about poor people in Africa, when we all know poverty in Africa is created by the chrstian colonizers like france who force african countries to put 70% of their money in French banks, and then the French lend the same african countries back their own money on which they are forced to pay interest to the christian thieves

    • They just built a mosque, they don't care who steals their resources, they spend their money on a building instead of the people.

  • Mashallah

  • Poverty around but they decide to invest in a stupid Mosque, if that was a Church, people would whine and complain. Hypocrites!

    • Stfu no one tells Other African country’s to build churches btw this African Islam they are a mix of African and Islam, together it’s not Arab Islam

    • typical muslim haters always complain and whine and pretend to care about poor people in Africa, when we all know poverty in Africa is created by the chrstian colonizers like france who force african countries to put 70% of their money in French banks, and then the French lend the same african countries back their own money on which they are forced to pay interest to the christian thieves

    • Investing in life after death wiser decision

  • Im not sure if huge places of prayer are what such a poor country needs. Maybe they could have used this money in infrastructure instead

  • Allahu Akbar

  • This is the fall of what is left of senegal... the brottherhood ? The gang !

  • MashAllah May Allah bless Senegal Love from Bangladesh!

  • They are very nice people masha Allah

  • Allah protect us from bid'ah.

  • Why France ??

  • United muslim ummat.

  • "...Living on less than two dollars a day." It is time for journalist to stop that b.s. equating people's life, especially Africa with money/U.S.$. Poverty is the biggest industry of wealthy countries and people. This journalist doesn't know his history and how Africa with its natural and human resources was and is still being exploited today in 2019 as this writng is taking place? Doesn't he know about Mama Africa Ambassador damning report of France money laundering scheme extracting millions of that same dollar every year out of Africa and its evil dealing to keep the region divided and poor? He should be looking into the wealth of this African country and is controlling it. Rather than trying to blight the people's accomplishments and how they generated their funds to build it. While msm continues to showcase Africa as children with big bellies and can't even fan a fly from their faces, Europe has wealthy white men/royals who can jet themselves around the world to have any amount of orgies. Africa poverty is Europeans/white people glory. Remember this next time Mr. Journalist when talking about, "...Living on less than two dollars a day."

    • Why spend money on a mosque when can use for better stuff.

    • STFU with that victim ideology broke boy

  • You're inaugurating mosques yet your citizens are in boats escaping for a better life in Europe in search for jobs... CONSTRUCT Factories.. Senegalese aren't fleeing to Europe in search of mosques

  • LORD OF LORDS JESUS WILL PUT HIS HOLY CROSS ON IT=AMEN=

    • Christian claim without bases:JESUS will put cross on it. Muslim claim base on the prophet saying:Jesus himself will destroy the cross.

    • @ivo dimitrow God have no sexual desires nor does he share his Godhood...

    • Jesus never worship a cross...the jews viewed the cross as a curse by the way...they believe someone who is crucified on a cross is cursed by God

    • Roman god priapus killed your god lol

  • We feel so sad, we have madrasa of about 100 students, we teach them at poorly and roughly room...we have been searching for doners but we got nothing...WE ASK YOU TO HELP US.....LOCATION IS PEMBA IN ZANZIBAR ISLANDS

    • Ask the arags in Saudi and rich arab countries who PROSPER from islam .....or try building it im sure u can build a dam building thats not dilapidated and get assistance from rich arab islam for computers ....build it yourselves and print books that has math ....history...science....botany...biology....if u study islams scholars u can learn to teach the future

    • suleiman suleiman Brother you are doing great work, I wish for you success. Zanzibar Island is like paradise on earth.

  • May Allah has mercy to those who paid for construction...

    • @Suleiman Nothing good comes out of Islam in the long term. This mosque will make things worse in Senegal.

    • Amine ya rabi

  • Sufi brotherhoods are most peace loving people in world

  • masallah love form BD

  • Assalamo Alaikum Brother. Great to hear from you and see largest Mosque. Love you from India and REQUESTING you all to do Dawah works continue world wide and Build Islamic Schools to create more and more Zakir Naik and Ahmed Deedats like Islamic preachers. May Allah Bless and protect all and make Dawah works easy for all Ameen

    • I'll be watching this country and im sure by 2030 it will be in ruins and flooded by ARABS very sad to see my ppl making the same mistakes

    • We need more islamic scholars and preachers also

    • @Malik Ahmad they do not need to import. They better can create Islamic preachers.

    • Feroz Ghauri They built such a beautiful mosque, why would they import half literate mullas from India?

  • Bigger masjid not proud in Islam, first resolved poor fulfill they needs.

    • @Sofian that's the key to a revolution.

    • @Nias 2019 I can only agree with that but I don't have any facts about them doing it for "pride" rather than for God.

    • @Sofian masjid for need to pray not for proud. Anyone deed for proud to other that condemn in Islam.

    • First stop pretending that there is a choice to be made between the two. Without religion the poor will have less not more.

  • That's huge!

  • Much respect for Senegal. Hope the mosque will be safe from Wahhabi influences and keep spreading peace to the people of Senegal.

    • Or arabs that will take over by 2040

    • There is no wahabi ,no one call themselves wahabi

  • I was in Senegal last September for one month and im 100% sure thats not what people needs over there

    • @AngryZombie808 I'm pretty sure not

    • Or maybe this mosque is more than what you think it is. As a place of gathering, being that big what it means socially? As a symbol, how people perceive it? Are they inspired?

    • 95.9% of Senegal population disagree with your one month assumption.

    • Countries usually don't do what people actually need. They keep fulfilling the wants instead of the needs.

  • masallah

  • Not a Muslim myself but I admit it's huge

    • Why don't they just drop all abrahamic religions and free themselves

    • @OttomanOsman imansız Türk Varmıydı bu dünyada :D hiç duymadım İlk defa senden duydum bunu.

    • @Ricky Reynaldi stop with wahabi brother

    • @OttomanOsman Thanks, brother. I hope the mosque will be free from Wahhabi influence and keep spreading peace.

  • Love from Bangladesh Sadeo mane and senegal
