The dynamic career of Fodé Ibrahim Turé, known as Fodé Silla in the literature about the Gambia River region, is the basis for an analysis of the development and influence of Islam during the second half of the nineteenth century. Fodé Turé is one of several spiritual and militant Muslims who were identified by British and French officials as leaders of jihād movements that were impeding their control over political institutions and economic resources during the period of imperial expansion. The article examines Fodé Turé’s relations with Muslim and non-Muslim communities and with British and French administrators and describes his efforts to create an Islamic state in Kombo andadjacent areas of Casamance. Although his goal is ultimately thwarted by European imperial advancement, his reputation as a great Muslim scholar and militant leader remains vibrant in the twenty-first century.
