Caretakers of the Mosque in Jurbel
The one on the left is a specific kind of Sufi Mouride-- a Bai Fall---Dr. Fallou Ngom is something of an expert on this sub-order. They do not fast or pray. Instead they focus on good deeds---building or repairing Mosques and feeding the poorer members of the community when the Ramadan fast ends in the evening. While in the bigger Mosque at Touba, we saw them unloading heavy bags of cement, carrying them on their heads. Many are dreadlocked with interesting costumes. They are unsmiling. Very interesting.
