The Students' Wing

Prior to the coming into existence of IOTB, there had been the yearning for the platform where the Zawiyyas in our various institutions of learning can interact, network, co-operate and work together. There came in interaction among Muslim Tijjaniyyah students in institutions/campuses across the globe. The students’ wing is committed to the creation of unity, brotherhood and togetherness among Zawiyyas in institutions of learning. It is also to serve as an umbrella for Tijjaniyyah students in carrying out their established and known activities such as daily wazifa, Zikr Jumu’at, Maulud, Ziyarah etc. this is due to the fact that it is well established that Tijjaniyyah students share same aims, objectives, hope, and aspirations. In addition, they also face identical problems, difficulties and challenges. Hence, the need for the Zawiyyas to come together, strengthen one another and proffer solutions to their common problems.
