Qadiriya
   The most important Muslim religious brotherhood (tariqa) in much of Niger, including the Tuareg. It was established by Abdelkader al-Jilani (1077-1166) in Baghdad and disseminated to Morocco in the 1450s. The brotherhood was popular in Zinder, Tahoua, and Agadez but lost ground in the 1920s to the Tijaniya brotherhood. Its current strongholds are Zinder and Agadez, and it is prevalent among the Tuareg.
   See also Islam; Zawiya.
