Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani

May ALLAH be satisfied with him

Sherif Sidi Bouiza El Berbery (may ALLAH be pleased with him), endowed with great blessing, was pious and majestic). He, may ALLAH have mercy upon him, had sincere love for Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret), and he was firmly bound to the cord of the Tariqa Tidjaniya. He met Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) in secret on the well-known occasion when several tribes had been brought together by a dissident known as Amhaouche. It is said that Sidi Buiza El Berbery (may ALLAH be pleased with him) used to live with his family in a region called Berbera and one year, the rebellious Amhaouche gathered all the Berber tribes which supported his cause. This substantial group of men and riders intended to march on Fes, destroy the kingdom and plunder the land. 

Sidi Buiza El Berbery (may ALLAH be pleased with him) recounted: 

« I was hidden in their midst and my aim was to separate from the group and to go to Fes. While they were camping near a mountain close by, I left them and headed towards Fes. My main reason for going there was to obtain affiliation to a spiritual path linked to the men of God. In fact, I had heard of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) and his Tariqa and of its blessings. I inquired of his whereabouts in order to go there. 

Having received authorization, I entered his house, and found Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) performing zikr walking back and forth. He gestured to me to sit down and wait until he had finished. Then, I stood up and went to greet him. He asked me where I came from, about my lineage, my situation, my objective and I answered him. Then I requested him to give me the authorization for his litanies and he acquiesced.

Finally, I consulted him concerning my wish to move from the region of Berbera to another place. He asked me if the women of my region prayed, to which I answered that some of them did, and he gave me to understand that I should not leave my region yet.

When I wanted to go, he asked about the aforementioned troublemaker and his followers as well as their intentions. I informed him all about their great strength and brutality and about their aim. Then Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) turned in their direction, held out the palm of his hand and blew on it. 

Then I greeted him, he invoked the blessings for me and I went on my way. The next morning, I reached the place where I had left Amhaouche and his followers, when I inquired about them, I was informed: “Yesterday at such and such a time, they were routed and not one of them could prevent this flight, and no-one knew the reason for it.” I came to know that they had been routed at the very moment when Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) blew in their direction and ALLAH filled their heart with fear, through the blessings of Seyyidina’s will.»
