Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani

May ALLAH be satisfied with him

Abu Muhammad Sidi Abdallah Sufi (may ALLAH be pleased with him), sublime Muqaddam of noble character, was among the deserving Muqaddam of the Tariqa, and those who were appointed by Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) to transmit this Tariqa Muhammadiya.

He was honoured and respected by Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) and by all his companions both during Seyyidina’s lifetime and after his death. He died in the town of Souf in Algeria.

Here is a letter written by the great Wali Sidi Mahmud Tunsi (may ALLAH be pleased with him) to the disciples residing in the town of Souf, in which he formally denies an untrue rumour which was spreading, purporting to the death of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret):

« To all our beloved and friends, companions of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) in the town of Souf, this poor servant of ALLAH, prisoners of his sins, Mahmoud Tounsi, greets you “completely, perfectly, wholly and absolutely.”

For those who are wondering about our guide, essence of truth among his servants, our master Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret), may ALLAH give us to drink from his ocean with the largest vessels, know that he is well as are his children, his servants and Sidi Muhammad ibn Mechri. Concerning what has been spread by despicable and repulsive idiots at this time with regards to the so called death of the spirit of the special ones, the heart of the incomparable, know that this is a lie, a fraud and a slander and nothing more.

As a matter of fact, the Master of Existence (may the prayer and the peace be upon him) had informed him through a truthful and indisputable promise that he would spend the rest of his life in the Qutbaniya that it is to say eighty years during which through him some would succeed and others would not. He irrigates the whole of existence as has been mentioned. The headstrong persons will suffer the consequences of their acts and nobody will be able to oppose these consequences, because ALLAH has angels scribes who record all words and acts for each creature whether good or bad.

He who has done good will be rewarded and the others will be punished to such an extent that the masters’ opponents (opponents of Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani, may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) would say « Woe upon me! It would have been better to be a pig than an opponent (of Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani, may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret). »

Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) lived for eighty years: he was born in 1150 of the Hegira and passed away in 1230 of the Hegira.
