On The Meeting Between Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani Hafidahullah and Shaykh Ibrahim Niasse Tijani Rahimahullah in the 90's:

During his Ivory Coast visit in february 2010, Mawlana Shaykh HIsham Kabbani gave a short talk about his encounter with the Senegalese saint Shaykh Ibrahim Niasse (also known as Baye Niasse) in Beirut in 1973. The Shaykh told Mawlana, who was 12 years back then, that a day would come when he would go to his area in Africa and meet a lot of Africans. He said Shaykh Niasse saw him and called him by his name even though they had never met before. Then he came close to him and whispered something in his ear which he never told anyone before until today. Shaykh Niasse said: "O my son, I am from Africa and in the future I am seeing that you will go to Africa you will find lot of saints there. You will see them and you will know them. Some of them they know they are saints, others do not. Africa is the land of saints." "Imagine," says Mawlana, "I am coming here after all these years and seeing these beautiful faces (of saints) here that Allah put them as mountains to balance this earth."
