Many of the French who came into contact with Moussa commented on his religiosity. Maurice Benhazera confirmed his religious fervour.
There are indications that Moussa's life did undergo a considerable change when he was about 30 years old (that is, c. 1897) in the form of an enhanced religiosity, which can be attributed to the spiritual mentorship of Bay al-Kunti  who resided in Téleya in the Adrar des Ifoghas.
In 1901 Musa ag Amastan was part of the Kel Ahaggar coalition leading a rezzu (invasion) against the Berabich of Azawad submitted to the French authorities in Timbuktu.
