“Alblaaga” is a title given to a fictitious, non-existing, yet influential leader who is used by someone (or a group of “someones”) to lead a group. This “someone” knows that they are lacking in charisma and personality and would not be able to lead based upon their own merit. Therefore, they create “Alblaaga” who exemplifies superior leadership and then set themselves up as middle-men between the group and “Alblaaga”.
The term "alblaaga" can also be applied to a leader who actually exists; but is completely remote, disconnected, and for the most part unseen by his followers.
Therefore, the commands, information, image, direction of the group, etc... are in the hands of a very small few in the group who actually do have contact with the leader. This very small group of people - who serve as middle-men or translators of "alblaaga" - often misrepresent the commands, information, image, direction of the group, etc... for their own purposes. In this case, the group is actually following "alblaaga" and not the real leader who they believe they are loyal to. The middle-men have actually replaced the real leader with "alblaaga" - in the image of the real leader!
Sometimes, even the small group of middle-men cease to have contact with the leader, yet they continue to act without his knowledge or approval. – Definition provided by Khalil Abdullahi, Abuhassan Alashshari, Imam Na'eem Abdullah and Yusuf Faruq Bah-Guarani
