Note: In Sudanese usage, many persons do not have family names but are instead known by their given (first) name; their subsequent names are the first names of the father, grandfather, etc. In this index, however, to accommodate Western readers, personal names are generally listed in alphabetical order by last name. The definite article al is ignored; thus al-Mahdi is found under the letter M. A few exceptions involve persons known best by their first names, e.g., General al-Sirr Muhammad Ahmad, listed under S. Titles are included with most names to assist in identification.
