اللهم صل على سيدنا محمد الفاتح لما أغلق والخاتم لما سبق ناصر الحق بالحق والهادي إلى صراطك المستقيم وعلى آله حق قدره ومقداره العظيم

Tariqa Tidjaniya

« […] Know also that this age has been engulfed by the ocean of sins, we have been struck by its waves, and its darkness has piled up, to the extent that creatures are unable to free themselves with the exception of the realized and truthful one or he who is closed to his station or the person who is under the attraction of divine providence.

Apart from these, all others are marked by the incapacity to get out from sins. Given that this situation is decreed by our Supreme Master, Exalted is His Majesty, then the reasonable person, having corrected his obligatory deeds, should attend to the expiation of his sins. By the grace of ALLAH the Most High, there are many methods of expiation. If a person has sinned profusely and devotes himself to expiation and makes great effort to repel his sins as much as possible, this will diminish the heap of sins, and he is better than the person who throws himself into sin without accomplishing any expiation.

ALLAH The Most High said: “…Verily, the good deeds remove the evil deeds…” (Sourate 11, verse 114)

And the Messenger of ALLAH (peace and blessings be upon him): « Follow a bad deed by a good one and it will be wiped away. » or words to that effect.

This is similar to a person who regularly suffers from sores on his body and who hastens to apply the medicine as soon as a new sore appears. Of course, this is better than the person who is afflicted with sores that he does not treat and says: “treatment is useless because they are so many of them.”

Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) wrote the following:

In the name of ALLAH, The Beneficient, The Merciful,

May the prayer and the salutations be upon our Master Muhammad, his family and his companions,

Here is some general advice for all the brothers from the poor servant of ALLAH The Most High, Ahmed ibn Mohamed Tidjani el Hassani, may ALLAH grant him his kindness and grace in both abodes,

May the prayer, the peace and the mercy of ALLAH be upon you.

Know that, may ALLAH have mercy upon you, know that man was only created in this world to adore ALLAH (The Glorified, The Exalted) and fulfil His commandments and abandon that which He forbids. Indeed the faithful fulfilment of the commandments of ALLAH The Most High, and respect for His Law are part of the most essential obligation and the greatest orientation towards ALLAH (The Glorified, The Exalted). This was decreed by both the Divine Station and the Prophetic Law.

Letter from Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani for the attention of the disciples from the area of Guemar (Algeria), dictated to his scribe the Muqaddem Sidi Ahmed ibn AbdSalem Filaly (may ALLAH be satisfied with him).

“Praise be to ALLAH. From the illustrious Imam of noble lineage, guide for creatures, the radiant evidence of Islam, the Knower of ALLAH, Abou l Abbas, our Lord and Master Ahmed ibn Mohammed ibn Salim Tidjani the Hassanite Sherif: “To each and every one of our beloved, endowed with our affection, the disciples of Guemar.

May the Peace and Mercy of ALLAH the Most High, His blessing, His Salutations and Satisfaction be upon you as long as existence and void do not merge. I give thanks to ALLAH for you, He other than whom there is no divinity. Then, I beseech ALLAH (The Glorified, The Exalted) to grant you the gift of always sufficing you, His Guardianship, His Defense, His Protection, His Alliance, His Guidance, His Attention, His Care, His Supervision, His Custody, His Choice, His Power, His Invincibility and His Safeguard. From Him comes succor and in Him we place our infallible trust.

I recommend the Muqaddem to exhort the disciples, to remind them, to advise them, to visit their ailing, to attend their funerals, to take care of the healthy and to insure relief from their worries, to patiently endure their annoyance, to recognize their qualities, to be lenient with their mistakes, to hasten to satisfy formally them, to reconcile, to promote harmony in their hearts, without considering himself more privileged than them. He should teach the ignorant, remind the forgetful, and motivate the careless. He should not show them miserliness with what he holds in his hands.

After evoking the Name of ALLAH (The Glorified, The Exalted) and the prayer and the peace upon the Messenger of ALLAH,

I exhort and advise you to fear ALLAH (The Glorified, The Exalted), both in secret and in public, to purify your heart from any opposition to His Order, to rely on ALLAH with your heart, to accept His decisions in all circumstances, to bear the hardships of the paths that He decrees in all situations, and, for this, depend on abundant evocations, with the Presence of the Heart as much as possible, this will help you to follow my advice.

Know that the greatest evocation of ALLAH, for the benefit that it brings, the most efficient and advantageous, is the prayer upon the Messenger of ALLAH (peace and blessings be upon him) with the presence of the heart. This prayer takes care of all requests, both in this world and the next, to repel and attract in all matters. He who recites it profusely will become one of the greatest and sincere friends of ALLAH (The Glorified, The Exalted).

The second thing that I exhort you to do is to renounce using money that is declared illegal by the Law, for food, clothing and lodging, because that which is lawful is the pole around which all the stars of adoration orbit. He who turns away from that which is lawful will also have turned away from all the benefit related to adoration.  Beware of saying: “But where is it to be found?” Certainly, it does exist abundantly in every land and in every age, but you will only find it having sought to perfectly fulfil the commandments of ALLAH, both interiorly and exteriorly; and considering the requirements of the moment, if we cannot find what is undoubtedly lawful, then a scrupulous knowledge of jurisprudence is required in this domain as well as a wide knowledge of the prescriptions of the Law. He who conforms to this, will have no difficulty finding that which is lawful.
