Your questions

Question: Is it true that Friday Haylala used to be performed standing up and moving the body?

 

Answer:

Yes it is. Friday Hadra (Haylala) was performed according to the rules of the Khalwatiya such as rocking the body in time to the rhythm of the evocation as well as standing up, both during Seyyidina’s lifetime and after his death.
Later, seeing so many innovations arising during gatherings, Sidi Muhammad El Kebir (may Allah be pleased with him), who was world Caliph at the time, and his brother Sidi Mahmud (may Allah be pleased with him), the grandsons of Seyyidina (may Allah sanctify his precious secret), sent a letter to the people of Fes instructing them to renounce the rules of the Khalwatiya and just to recite La ilaha illa ALLAH”. This is the way that Haylala is practiced in Fes, in Ain Madhi and elsewhere to this day. 

 

Question: What about the recitation of the name "ALLAH" during Friday Hadra?

 

Answer: 

Certain scholars, such as Sheikh Umar al Futi (may Allah be pleased with him) in his book “Rimah”, and Hajj al Hassan al Baqili in his book El Ira-a, specify that it is possible to recite the Ismu Mufrad that is to say “ALLAH” after the recitation of “La ilaha illa ALLAH” or alone.

However, during the lifetime of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH be sanctify his precious secret) and until his death, only the words “La ilaha illa ALLAH” were recited and this is still the case in the noble Zawiya in Fes and in Ain Madhi.

Question: What is the Islamic evidence of zikr in congregation (alluding to the Wazifa in the Tidjaniya)?

 

According to Abu Darda (may ALLAH be pleased with him), the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: 

« On the Day of Judgement, ALLAH will resuscitate certain people, their faces will be radiant, and they will be seated upon chairs of pearl and will be envied by others, although they are neither Prophets nor martyrs. »

A Bedouin fell to his knees and asked:  

« O Messenger of ALLAH! Please describe these people to us so that we recognize them. 

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) answered: 

These people are from different tribes and different regions, who love each other, and who have gathered in order to evoke ALLAH ». (related by Tabarani, hadith hassan)

Question: If someone brought forward his morning lazim before Fajr Azan but didn’t finish it before the Azan, what should he do?

 

Answer: 

In the book "Ifada al ahmediya", it is written that Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precisous secret) said:If a person has brought forward his subh wird and is surprised during his recitation by dawn, he should complete it.”

Sidi Muhammad al Hafidh commented: That is to say, he should complete it and then do it again after Subh prayer.”

So, if one hears the call to prayer of Fajr (i.e. azan), one should complete the morning lazim that was done with the intention of preceding the Fajr and then do it again after the Sub prayer.
