Sidi Hajj Budjama (may ALLAH be pleased with him) was pious, always remembering ALLAH (The Glorified, The Exalted), the grateful blessed servant of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret). He was one of the best among the elite, one of those who were far away from all betrayal regarding The Ahmedian Majesty, who held all goodness within them and who had the great spiritual opening.

He often saw the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and for this, he used the same prayer as the great intermediary Sidi Muhammad ibn Arabi (may ALLAH be pleased with him). When he saw the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) used to say to him: “I am Muhammad ibn AbdAllah.” Many of those in service to Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) and also many of those in service to other people experienced the spiritual opening coming directly from Seyyidina’s own hand. It has been said that Sidi Hajj Budjama (may ALLAH be pleased with him) used to read Dalail el Khairate on the eve of every Friday and Monday and also in congregation in a mosque near to his home. One evening, he did not come to join them as was his habit but he followed the reading from his home until he went to sleep. While he was sleeping, he saw a member of the group who came to tell him: “Get up to see the Prophet, he is coming here” and then that person left to continue his recitation. Sidi Hajj Boujama (may ALLAH be pleased with him) stood respectfully on the path and saw the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) accompanied by Abu Bakr Siddiq (may ALLAH be pleased with him).

He spoke about it in these words: “When I saw the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), I threw myself upon him: “May I benefit from the mark of the seal of the Prophecy?” and I repeated it several times. Abu Bakr (may ALLAH be pleased with him) showed me the place where the seal of the Prophecy was to be found and replied: “This part is sick” and added: “Do not come closer.” The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) turned to him and said: “Let him enjoy.” Then the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) removed his coat and uncovered his shoulder saying: “Look.” I saw the seal of the Prophecy between his blessed shoulders. It looked like the palm of a hand with fingers joined, pointing downwards and at the extremity there was a circle like a red stamp. ”

I kissed it and looked at it until the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “That is enough” and covered himself (peace and blessings be upon him). When I moved away, he called me and said: “Can I you hear me?” I answered: “Yes, O my Master, O Messenger of ALLAH!” Then he said: “You are of those who have truly seen me.” Hearing this, I was filled with such great joy that I woke up and then I heard that the group who was in the nearby mosque had reached the part which says: “O ALLAH, pray upon the holder of goodness, beauty, splendour and perfection.” I rose, performed my ablutions and went to tell them my vision.

I was sure that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) had come to attend the end of the recitation. They were immensely joyful upon hearing this and were motivated to overcome their laziness.  

Later, he left this group because most of them had passed on. He himself died about twenty years after Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret).
