Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani

May ALLAH be satisfied with him

Abu Walid Sidi ‘Arbi El ‘Iraqi (may ALLAH be pleased with him), noble Sherif, respected scholar and source of blessings was one of the holders of the spiritual opening among the elite of the companions of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret). He was among his closest companions, those upon who he looked with reverence.

Sidi ‘Arbi El ‘Iraqi (may ALLAH be pleased with him) was one of those who had the honour to sit in the presence of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) during his meals. Once, they were joined by the son of Sidi ‘Arbi El ‘Iraqi (may ALLAH be pleased with him), scholar of the time and master of great value, learned in the knowledge of the hadith, Sidi Walid El ‘Iraqi (may ALLAH be pleased with him) who was but a child at the time. Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) sat him on his knee and fed him mouthfuls of couscous with his blessed hand while evoking the spiritual opening for him.

Indeed, outstanding spiritual openings in terms of apparent and hidden knowledge and an exceptional memory were manifest as a result of the blessings of Seyyidina’s evocations.
