The blessed Master Abou Tayib Sidi Hajj Muhammad ibn Muhammad Lahlu, immersed in Divine Succour, both mobile and immobile, was meritorious, experienced and perfectly obedient to ALLAH (The Glorified, The Exalted). He was among the good people of firm religion, following the path of guidance.
He had taken the Tariqa from the blessed hands of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctifiy his precious secret). He was among the emissaries companions of Seyyidina. Occasionally, Seyyidina sent him to Ain Madhi as emissary. He also dispensed the salaries and the lime during the construction of the blessed Zawiya in Fes in order to receive some blessings.
One day, Sidi Muhammad ibn Muhammad Lahlu (may ALLAH be pleased with him) invited Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctifiy his precious secret) and some of his companions to the celebration of a birth, but when the time came to serve the meal, he discreetly approached Seyyidina and said quietly: “O My Master, the meal we have prepared with never suffice to feed all these people.” Seyyidina gave him his coat saying: “Cover the dish with this, and then fill a second dish with the content of the first without uncovering it.” He did as he was told and brought dishes in succession to the companions until they were completely replete. When the meal was finished, he removed Seyyidina’s coat from the main dish and found it untouched.
Sidi Muhammad ibn Muhammad Lahlu (may ALLAH be pleased with him) died in 1250 of the Hegira and was buried at Bab Ftuh.
