Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani

May ALLAH be satisfied with him

Abu-l-Abbas Sidi Ahmed ibn Asaker El Djaza-iri (may ALLAH be pleased with him) was a holder of great mastery, of high station. He was immersed in the love of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) whose love reciprocated (it was given back) his own sincere and full love.He often used to ask Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) to guarantee him the acquisition of the same station of that of the renowned and great knower, the wali Abu Zayd Sidi AbdRahman (may ALLAH be pleased with him) but Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) warned him against this.

Finally, one day, Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) granted his request, saying: “You will have it on one condition: you must accept the ordeals of his station.” He answered: “O Master, certainly, I accept.” In accordance with ALLAH’s decree, as a result of occurrences between the Turks and himself, he was executed. Once, when he visited Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) in Fes, he also met the renowned Majdouba (i.e. attracted by ALLAH) Lalla Manana (may ALLAH be pleased with her).

At this encounter, she knew his name from the start through spiritual unveiling. Then, she told him many things, of which: “Harm will come to you in your garden.” As a matter of fact, when he returned to Algiers, Turks passing through his garden found reason to kill him by mistake, may ALLAH be merciful upon him.
