Tijjaniyya Grassroot (TiGMEIN)

Tariqatu Tijaniyya is a pristine path of spiritual elevation through Qur’an and Sunnah, originating from the Maghreb and reaching Nigeria since early 19th Century. The path boasts of a staggering number of followers in Nigeria, numbering up to fifty (50) million people, making it the largest religious movement within a country in Africa. This population holds great potentials religiously, politically, socially and economically, which are not tapped due to one drawback or the other. 

The Tijjaniyya community in Nigeria is plagued with several problems, which have led to truncation of its members’ from accessing certain rights and privileges; hereby stalling the general progress of the movement.

The Tijjaniyya Grass-root Mobilization and Empowerment Initiative of Nigeria (TiGMEIN) is an initiative that is aimed at triggering national development through sensitizing, mobilizing, informing, educating and empowering Tijjaniyya followers from the grass-root. The organization is registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission with RN: 158595.
