Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani

May ALLAH be satisfied with him

Sidi Hajj Mohamed ibn Moussa El Turki (may ALLAH be pleased with him), the great wali and renowned knower was among those who loved Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) and he was perfectly devoted in his service complying to his will both while traveling with him and his absence. He was inundated with love for Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret), who had requested the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) to insure protection for his companion.

At the beginning, when Seyyidina’s companions came to ask him for protection, he granted their wishes, until the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) ordained him to only guarantee the protection of those whose love was confirmed as is mentioned in the Machahid of Sidi Hajj Ali Harazeem (may ALLAH be pleased with him).

Indeed, in reply to Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret), he said: “O Sidi, may ALLAH be satisfied with you, know that in answer to your question concerning the protection of the brothers, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “I am told that you place under protection the entire village and all that it contains, the group and all it members, and the complete tribe. You know that each of these groups includes those who love and those who hate. Even if you grant protection to all of them without exception, the noxiousness of those who hate will affect those that you have protected and therefore they no longer benefit from its fulfilment. Consequently, from now on, grant protection only to those whose perfect sincerity, closeness and love for you is sure.””

Since that day, Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) acted accordingly. Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) totally distanced himself from those who hated him because this wrong affected the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). He also warned his companions saying (or words to that effect): “Sitting with our detractors is a poison which spreads over all those who are in their company.

From the moment when Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) was entrusted with the task of guiding people to the Truth and to transmit the Tariqa Muhammadiya to all those who requested it, although he was above such infamy, Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) was the object of jealousy and annoyance. He tactfully avoided his opponents because he knew that this grudge was due to the Muhamadiyan inheritance that had manifested within him. As a result, when they attacked him and he realized that their actions would lead to their downfall, both in this world and the next, because this was wronging the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him); his compassion for them prevailed. He did his best and redoubled his efforts in order to spare them the Prophet’s anger (peace and blessings be upon him).

Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) addressed a letter to the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) through the intermediary of the noble Sidi Muhammad ibn Arabi Damrawi (may ALLAH be pleased with him) expressing the following request: “In the Name of ALLAH, The Most Merciful, The Entirely Merciful, and may the prayer of ALLAH be upon our Master Muhammad and his family. O Master, I request eternally and for ever complete protection from your anger for all those who hate me or with whom I have been angry, and for those who are irritated with me or with whom I may be irritated, because, o Master, I am afflicted that you are angry with them because of me.

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) replied to Sidi Muhammad ibn Arabi Damrawi (may ALLAH be pleased with him): “I will only be angry with he who insults you and Tidjani, wishing for your perdition. On the Day of Judgement, I will be angry with whoever insult or is hostile to you and Tidjani. As for he who loves you both, he is among the people of Salvation and is the first to benefit from my intercession and will not be judged. The actions of all those who see Tidjani on Mondays and Fridays will be forgiven.
