اللهم صل على سيدنا محمد الفاتح لما أغلق والخاتم لما سبق ناصر الحق بالحق والهادي إلى صراطك المستقيم وعلى آله حق قدره ومقداره العظيم

Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani

May ALLAH be satisfied with him

Sidi Sherif Ahmed ibn Ismail El Laghouati (may ALLAH be pleased with him) was a jurist, a clairvoyant scholar and his soul was virtuous. He was beloved by Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) who often used to praise him.

Among the events related about him, it is said that one day, before fajr, he was in the old mosque of Laghouat and was unobtrusively reading the Quran. Another companion Sidi Issa Sharraz (may ALLAH be pleased with him) was performing zikr next to him. Suddenly, the latter saw the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), who said to him: “Tell Ahmed ibn Ismail to raise his voice when reciting the Quran.” Sidi Issa Sharraz (may ALLAH be pleased with him) approached Sidi Ahmed Issa El Laghouati (may ALLAH be pleased with him) and told him what the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) ordained. So Sidi Issa Sharraz (may ALLAH be pleased with him) began to read the Quran out loud in accordance with the sublime order and his recitation sounded like one of Seyyidina Dawud’s flute (peace be upon him).
