Your questions

Question: do women have to congregate to perform Friday Haylalah (Asru) or Wazifa?

Answer: 

Actually, there is no zikr in congregation for women: women perform all zikr alone. However, women can attend both the wadhifa and the hadra on Fridays in assembly if the two following conditions  are met:

- Women and men are not mixed and so they cannot see each other

- Women must not recite aloud (in the same way as for Salat)

So if these conditions are met, women are authorised to follow the recitation of men, but this does not count as zikr in congregation, as we mentioned previously: there is no zikr in congregation for women.

Question: Is it possible to bring forward the evening lazim?

Answer: 

Yes it is possible to bring forward the evening lazim only if the three following conditions are present: 

1- The evening lazim can only be brought forward in order to precede Fajr (dawn) – in the same way that we would bring forward the morning lazim, that is to say during the preceding night and never before the Asr of the same day. 

2- It can only be brought forward in the case of an impediment which covers the whole preferential period of time for the accomplishment of the evening lazim (that is to say between Asar and Isha). However, if the obstacle in question is lifted during this preferential time, the evening lazim that you had brought forward before dawn would still be valid. 

3- The order of accomplishment of the lazim should be respected: that is to say, first bring forward the morning lazim and then it is possible to bring forward the evening lazim. 

If the three above conditions are not met, then the lazim that had been brought forward would not be valid. 

Question: Is it true that Ahmed Tidjani said that all those who see him on Mondays and Fridays will enter Paradise?

 

Answer:

Yes indeed, Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (May Allah sanctify his precious secret) received this immense grace directly from the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) in an awakened state. He (peace and blessings be upon him) said (or words to that effect): 

"By the Power of my Lord! On Mondays and Fridays,  I do not leave you, even for a moment, from Fajr to Maghrib; and with me there are 7 angels, and for all those who see you during these two days, the 7 angels write their names on a gold tablet and so, they are considered people of Paradise and I will witness that. Busy yourselves with abundant prayers upon me during these two days. I hear and answer every prayer you pray upon me and so it is for each of your deeds that are exposed to me, and may Peace be upon you."

It is reported by the companions of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH be pleased with him), who had reached the spiritual opening, that the particular blessing of these two days reaches only those who had been chosen by ALLAH The All Knower to be among the people of bliss. So only those people will see him. Even if they are non-believers when they see him, they will die as believers.

It was reported by the elite of the companions of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH be pleased with him) that a Jew was sewing clothes for Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH be pleased with him). Some companions sat next to the Jew and began discussing amongst themselves the immense blessing of the vision of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH be pleased with him) during these two days. They did not notice, but the Jew had heard all their discussion. The Jewish tailor made sure he finished his sewing on one of the two days, Monday or Friday.  He sought permission to show his work to Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH be pleased with him), saying that he wanted to obtain dua from Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH be pleased with him). Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may Allah sanctify his precious secret) was consulted about the request and he accepted. So the tailor entered and sat down beside him, looking at his face for a long time, and said to him, "O Sidi! I looked at your face on this day!"

Question: Is it true that the Tidjani disciples claim that the status of the Djawharatu-l-Kamal is greater than that of the Holy Quran?

 

Answer:

 This claim is false. It is indisputable that the status of the Quran is more important than that of Djawharatu-l-Kamal for the following three reasons:

 

  1. The Quran is the Word of The Divine Essence. Therefore, it is the most important form of Zikr.

In Djawahiru-l-Ma’ani, Seyyidina Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) said: “The prominence of the Quran over all other words, whether they are formulas of Zikr or prayers upon the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), including Salat Fatihi, is more radiant than the sun. This radiance is implementing in the very principles of the Shari’a itself (Quran and the authentic prophetic hadith)”.
