Chapter Summary

This chapter embarks on a detailed exploration of the Qādiriyya order?s teachings as well as methods for spreading the word as essential to comprehending the popularity of the Qādiriyya message. It begins by examining the works of ʿAbdullāhī al-Quṭbī as heresiography, looking at the Shaykh?s charges against the Ṣāliḥiyya and using the fragmentary Ṣāliḥī sources available to help determine their validity. The chapter also concerns with uncovering Qādiriyya ideology in terms of the proper path to salvation; the role of the Prophet and the saints in the theology preached by the Qādirī shaykhs; and, finally, how these ideas impacted the Qādirī mission in the interior. More importantly, it provides us with a deeper understanding of what the Qādiriyya actually believed and how such ideas related to the lives of ordinary Somalis.

Keywords: Qādirī; Qādiriyya ideology; Qādiriyya message
