The talibés have a practice that they all undertake: to formulate prayers for the donor. By taking a close look at what they say in these prayers, we realize that they are inspired by what they think, rightly or wrongly, are the donor's concerns. For example, I noticed that they formulate different prayers for women and men, young and old. Pushing a little further, I also realized that they have not always prayed in the same way over time. In the 90s, there was a talibé who used to come to our house and whom we liked very much because he had a joyful, singing and funny way of praying: « yalna laa baay laate, dugal la ci poosam yobu la aldiana ! ( May God make Baye Lahat put you in his pocket and enter with you into Heaven. For him and for all the talibé of our youth, the prayers essentially referred to considerations of salvation: « yalna nga àjji màkka » « yalna nga giseek seriñ tuuba yoomalxiyaam » « yalna la borom bi bindal tuyaaba » etc.
After the 2000s, we used to hear other types of prayers: « yalna nga amm saaku xaalis » et « yalna nga tabbi ci teenu xaalis ñu lay gene ngay bañ » for men, « yalna nga amm ay seex » for women of a certain age. I realized that the prayers have evolved towards more concrete concerns, perhaps indicating what is most urgent for our societies in these difficult times.
In 2020, the covid19 seems to have logically found a place in the prayers of this young talibé.
 Baye Lahat is the other name of Abdoul Ahad Mbacké (1914-1989) son of the founder of the Murid brotherhood in Senegal and Khalif of this brotherhood from 1968 to his death.
 May God give you the grace to perform Hajj in Makkah (one of the five pillars of Islam).

 May God record this good deed for you...
