Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani

May ALLAH be satisfied with him

The blessed Master Abou Tayib Sidi Hajj Muhammad ibn Muhammad Lahlu, immersed in Divine Succour, both mobile and immobile, was meritorious, experienced and perfectly obedient to ALLAH (The Glorified, The Exalted). He was among the good people of firm religion, following the path of guidance.

He had taken the Tariqa from the blessed hands of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctifiy his precious secret). He was among the emissaries companions of Seyyidina. Occasionally, Seyyidina sent him to Ain Madhi as emissary. He also dispensed the salaries and the lime during the construction of the blessed Zawiya in Fes in order to receive some blessings.

One day, Sidi Muhammad ibn Muhammad Lahlu (may ALLAH be pleased with him) invited Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctifiy his precious secret) and some of his companions to the celebration of a birth, but when the time came to serve the meal, he discreetly approached Seyyidina and said quietly: “O My Master, the meal we have prepared with never suffice to feed all these people.” Seyyidina gave him his coat saying: “Cover the dish with this, and then fill a second dish with the content of the first without uncovering it.” He did as he was told and brought dishes in succession to the companions until they were completely replete. When the meal was finished, he removed Seyyidina’s coat from the main dish and found it untouched.

Sidi Muhammad ibn Muhammad Lahlu (may ALLAH be pleased with him) died in 1250 of the Hegira and was buried at Bab Ftuh.

The Sherif and Muqaddam Sidi Abou Abdallah Sidi Musa ibn Mazuz (may ALLAH be pleased with him) was one of pillars of this Tariqa. His feet were firmly rooted in this noble path. He was holder of elevated aspiration. He had an authentic spiritual opening and powerful unveiling. He was among the ten people to whom the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) had guaranteed the Great Opening, as Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctifiy his precious secret) had announced.

It is said that Sidi Musa Ibn Mazuz (may ALLAH be pleased with him) asked many questions of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctifiy his precious secret) because he was earnestly researching, and some of the elite among the companions feared for him for this lack of propriety (Adeb). One day, when he rose from sitting with Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctifiy his precious secret), the sincere beloved Sidi Mohamed Salassi (may ALLAH be pleased with him), who was older than Sidi Musa Ibn Mazuz, said to him: “O Sidi Musa, I fear for you when you are setting with Seyyidina because of your persistent questions, which is a lack of propriety for a disciple regarding his Sheikh.” He continued in the same way until Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctifiy his precious secret) called them both before him. They obeyed this order immediately and when they came before Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctifiy his precious secret), he said to Sidi Mohamed Salassi (may ALLAH be pleased with him): “What have you got against Sidi Musa?” Know that he is loved by us whatever his situation.” Since that day, everytime he met him, he used to say:O Sidi Musa, have no fear, for you are among the beloved.

The perfect Wali, the knower of ALLAH (al Arif al wasil) deeply-rooted in sainthood and enveloped by an attentive regard, and renowned for his attainment of great spiritual opening and immense blessings, Abu AbdAllah Sidi Tahar Butayba Tilimsani (may ALLAH be pleased with him). He was among the elite of the holders of the spiritual opening within the Tariqa Tijaniyya Hanifiya.

He was one of the radiant signs of ALLAH (The Glorified and The Exalted), famous for prodigies so numerous that it is not possible to mention them all. His attainment of Great Mastery (Khilafa) in this Tariqa Ahmediya Tijaniyya was certified.

During his lifetime he received a limited Muqaddam diploma (ijaza) from Seyyidina Ahmed Tijani (may ALLAH be pleased with him) himself, and later, Sidi Hajj Ali Tamacini (may ALLAH be pleased with him) gave him unlimited authorization. Sidi Hajj Ali Tamacini (may ALLAH be pleased with him) only gave unlimited authorization to those who were at the station (maqam) of Khilafa and specific education. The Tariqa was known in the region of Tlemcen thanks to Sidi Tahar (may ALLAH be pleased with him). The disciples from Tlemcen reported incredible events concerning Sidi Tahar and his degree (maqam).

The authorization to join the Tariqa was given to Sidi Bachir son of Sidi Muhammad El Habib son of Sidi Ahmed Tijani (may ALLAH be satisfied with them all) by Sidi Tahar.

Our Master Tayeb El Hassani, the sublime jurist of sherifian origin, otherwise known as Sefiani (may ALLAH be pleased with him), is the great knower and famous Wali, holder of blessings, lights, knowledge and secrets.

He is among the elite of the elite of the companions of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret), he is the author of the book “El Ifadat el Ahmediya” compiling some of Seyyidina’s words, taking great care to mention the reasons and circumstances in which they were pronounced. He had great spiritual power. He was absorbed in the universe of knowledge and (spiritual) secrets. He was also among the great scholars well versed in religion, one of the perfect Walis. He had complete knowledge of the Tajweed, that is to say the rules governing pronunciation during the recitation of the Quran.

One of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani’s companions (may ALLAH be pleased with them) related that he had seen Sidi Sefiani (may ALLAH be pleased with him) after his death and had asked him what ALLAH had done with him. Sidi Sefiani (may ALLAH be pleased with him) answered that ALLAH had granted him immense blessings and that he had only received good. In addition he had met the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) who offered him a big garden in Paradise so that he could teach the Quran to the children.

Another story recounts the circumstances of his first meeting with Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret). Sidi Sefiani (may ALLAH be pleased with him) was going through Egypt on his way to Hidjez (Arabic peninsula) when he met the sublime Muqaddam and companion of Seyyidina (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret), our Master Sidi Muhammad ibn AbdelWahid Banani El Misri (may ALLAH be pleased with him). The latter showed him the book “Djawahirou-l-Ma'ani” which Sidi Sefiani (may ALLAH be pleased with him) consulted. This event gave rise to an irresistible desire to meet Seyyidina (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret). He deeply regretted being in the same as him without having the blessing of meeting him.
