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

Here is an answer that Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) sent to Sidi Hajj ‘Ali Harazim (may ALLAH be pleased with him) at the beginning of his spiritual journey with him

« In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. May ALLAH pray upon our Master Muhammad, his family, his companions and greet them. May the peace be upon you

You have mentioned the great efforts that you make and that are necessary in order to achieve your aim, to accomplish good deeds for the hereafter. This is due to that part of your soul which is drawn to rest. It is absorbed in passion, because it had thought that it could attain the station of knowledge of ALLAH (The Glorified, The Exalted) effortlessly. Thus, it tends towards resting where it has been led by its passion. If it realized that its aim regarding knowledge of ALLAH, can only be obtained through the well-known efforts that the spiritual path requires and by renouncing (bad) habits, then it would certainly have met all its requirements. Indeed, It yearns for the object of its research, but imagines that it is possible to obtain it without struggle. Because of this, it does not make the required effort and does not renounce pleasure and passion.

For each obstacle, the appropriate measure should be applied. He who thinks he can face obstacles simply by his heart in its present state, without taking into account the proper rules does not know the divine principles. By thinking this way, he will reap only fatigue and nothing else. The example given for the obstacle is that of a cloud in the sky, and the example of the effort behind it is the sun. If the sky becomes clear, then the sun appears, but if the clouds remain then they represent an obstacle between it and us. It is not conceivable that clouds may remain in the sky and that the sun could appear at the same time. Think and meditate upon this, you will benefit from a great knowledge.

« After saying the Name of ALLAH and the prayer upon the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him),

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

The following is from the poor servant of ALLAH, Ahmed ibn Muhammad Tidjani, :

Certainly, through His Own Will and Choice, ALLAH attributes rules and predestinations to his creature of which He –may He be glorified and exalted- retains the knowledge and secret of destinies, which no one, excepting a rare few among his creatures, can access. Therefore, the servants have no other alternative but to approve and submit, without seeking the Secret of his Will.

Know also that ALLAH, the Glorified and the Exalted, has a reward for each trial, relief for each burden, ease for each difficulty, openness for each narrowness, victory in return for patience and a blessing after hardship. Be patient, even more patient because each thing has its outcome and every situation comes to an end.

As for what happened to you, this is part of the manifestations connected to the situation that you experience and which must occur. It is indeed difficult to reach up to it, obtaining it is invaluable, but you will succeed in attaining it very shortly, so be patient and accept this.

We request ALLAH, Powerful and Magnified, that He acts towards you with His Approval both in this world and in the Hereafter.

Concerning your assumption with regards to your demise, have no fear.

May the prayer and the peace of ALLAH be upon our master Muhammad, his family and his companions. »

Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) said that this had been guaranteed to him by the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and that without doubt it would be accomplished nonetheless on the condition never to believe yourself safe from ALLAH’s ruse and never to abandon the path.

Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) warned his companions saying (or words to that effect): “I say unto you that the Master of Existence has affirmed that he who insult us and persist in insulting us without repentance will die as a disbeliever. I tell you that he who takes our wird and thinks that no sins can harm him and that because of this he is exposed to sins and disobedience all the time thinking that he is safe from ALLAH’s punishment, ALLAH is going to put hatred for us in his heart to the extent that he insults us. Then ALLAH will let him die a disbeliever, so beware of disobedience.

Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) said :

 « Praise be to God. Praising him in the appropriate is a duty.

Know – may God guide us on the path of his guidance- that hardheartness is one of the greatest problem, and after disbelief, it is the greatest trial.

The reasons for hardheartedness are included in what I am about to tell you. If we avoid them, the heart will soften and awaken to good.

These reasons are as follows:

1. Persevering in any bad actions

2. Hoping for a long life

3. Anger for any other but God

4. Jealousy vis-a-vis other believers

5. Love for this world
