  • Some scholars in the region have contributed extensively in the area of Ilm nafs through the science of Tazkiyyah and their role as leader of the community. These works are hidden gems that are not given much attention and seen as general advice. We are inviting local and international scholars to search in the works of some of these scholars with the hope of extracting important ideas that will contribute to the global discussion on Islamic Psychology. Some of the scholars are;
    The Fodios; Sheikh Uthman dan Fodio, Sheikh Abdullah Fodio, Sheikh Muhammad Bello and other scholars produced by the Sokoto empire.
    The Kano Scholars
    Dedicated works on Tazkiyya; notably Sheikh Ibrahim Niasse is one of the most popular writers on topics of Tazkiyya in west africa especially through his Tafsir work and magnus opus on Arabic poetry on various topics.
    Sheikh Abdullahi Al Ilory – The founder of the popular Islamic and Arabic learning movement – Markaziy. His works both oral and writings, have now been extensively documented and available for more research.
