Hope you are all doing well insh'Allah.
I recently came across Sheikh Abu Tauba video giving an overview of studying Islam in Mauritania as he has gone through rigorous training there in the Islamic sciences..
At the end of the part 3 video, he states that most of the Mauritanians don't like Shaykh Hamza Yusuf and his teacher Shaykh Murabit Hajj and they are hated.
I'm trying to start studying and I find this extremely disturbing since I've found both scholars to be very helpful, just wondering if anyone can give insight on this and why even within Mauritania there are divisions within traditional islamic maliki knowledge training.
Here is Sheikh Abu Tauba's blog.
