Tariqa Tidjaniya

Question
When performing the wazifa in congregation, he who does not know djawharatul kamal and recite 20 salat el fatihi instead, if he completes the recitation of salat el fatihi before the group, is he authorized to recite djawharatul kamal with them with the aim of learning it?

Answer
When the group recites djawharatul kamal, he who is replacing them by salat el fatihi should recite them in a low voice. If he finishes before them, he may leave the assembly if necessary and his dhikr is valid. He may also recite djawharatul kamal with the aim of learning it, if all the necessary conditions for its recitation are gathered. In addition, if he has joined the group after the beginning of the wazifa and finishes the replacement before them, then he should catch up what is missing without waiting for the others to finish the recitation of djawharatul kamal.

Imam Nazifi (may ALLAH be pleased with him) stated: “It is preferable that he follows his brothers during the recitation of djawharatul kamal and maybe ALLAH will allow him to learn it. When they have finished, he should catch up what he has missed but there is no harm if he catches up while the brothers are reciting djawharatul kamal.”

 

Question
If someone has to replace the recitation of djawharatul kamal by salat el fatihi or inversely, and he forgets, what is the rule?

Answer
He who is obliged to perform the replacement and has recited djawharatul kamal by omission (mistake), and also who is under obligation to recite djawharatul kamal and who replaces it ; in both cases he is required to return to the obligation because the recitation of djawharatul kamal is only accepted with its conditions and for he who detains the necessary conditions for reciting djawharatul kamal, the replacement is not adequate.

In addition, if he performed his wazifa alone, in the two aforementioned cases, he is required to recite the request for forgiveness one hundred times (astarghfiroullah) with the intention to repair (niyat jabr). But, if he performs his wazifa in congregation, he is required to return to his obligation without the need of performing the reparations at the end. (According to Taisir el Amani by Sheikh Hajjouji)

 

Question
If the group of the wazifa finds that the place in which they are is not pure, can they move to another place even if it is not big enough (in accordance with the conditions required for the recitation of the djawharatul kamal) and replace the djawharatul kamal (by salat el fatihi)?

Answer
If the place is not big enough for the group but entirely pure then they should recite djawharatul kamal, even if the place is too narrow. On the other hand, if the place is soiled we should perform the replacement. (Sheikh an-Nazifi)

 

Question
If somebody smells bad either because of a disease or he has eaten onions… How should he perform his wazifa?

Answer
If the smell is so unpleasant and he is unable to remedy this, he should replace the recitation of djawharatul kamal by 20 recitations of salat el fatihi and he should sit at the last rank in order not to disturb with his bad smell. (Sheikh Idriss El Iraqi)

 

Question
If the disciple recites the verse: «Inna-l-Lah wa- mala’ikatahu yusalluna…» (the concluding/closing formula) after the third pillar of the wazifa and so before the Djawharatul kamal, and then remembers that Djawharatul kamal remains to be recited, what should he do?

Answer
He who recites the Wazifa alone and forgets to recite the djawharatul kamal, and so has recited the closing verse « Inna-l-Lah wa- mala’ikatahu yusalluna…» up to the end, then realizes his omission, should return to the recitation of the Djawharatul kamal without any need of reparation. (Al-Yawaqit wa-l-Jawahir al-mudi’a)

 

Question
If the disciple begins the Wazifa and then notices a stain of impurity on his clothes or his body, should he recite Djawharatul kamal ?

Answer
He who notices this after having begun his Wazifa should replace the recitation of Djawharatul kamal by 20 Salat Fatihi but only if he fears that by going to wash it he is going to overstep the stipulated time for the prayer or if there is no water. With the exception of these cases, he should wash the impurity and if his interruption is not too long he then recites Djawharatul kamal. If the interruption is too long then he should start his wazifa from the beginning. (Al-Yawaqit wa-l-Jawahir al-mudi’a)

 

Question
He who has invalidated his ablutions at the 12th Djawharatul kamal, is his Wazifa valid, since it was ordained, at the beginning, to recite only eleven Djawharatul kamal ?

Answer
Having invalidated his ablution, he should perform his Wazifa again. No ablutions, no wazifa. There is no need to refer to the time when 11 recitations were performed, because this has been abrogated. (Al-Yawaqit wa-l-Jawahir al-mudi’a)

 

Question
In the case where some people are traveling and wake up in a state of great impurity, unable to perform the Ghusl, they perform Tayamum, what should they do for the Wazifa in congregation since they are not authorized to recite Djawharatul kamal ?

Answer
They perform the wazifa in congregation and they reach the recitation of Djawharatul kamal everyone recites individually 20 salat Fatihi. Once they finished, they indicate it to the person leading and pick up where they had left off up till the end.

 

Question
Someone has recited 6 Djawharatul kamal and at the beginning of the 7th, he has a memory loss, what should he do?

Answer
In this case, he replaces it by 20 salat Fatihi. (Al-Yawaqit wa-l-Jawahir al-mudi’a)

 

Question
Is it authorized for he who teaches and he who learns to recite Djawharatul kamal having performed Tayamum or is it necessary to perform ablutions to learn it?

Answer
No, it is only authorized to recite Djawharatul kamal having perfomed ablutions because the rule that governs the whole also governs its parts. Indeed, the specific rule pertaining to Djawharatul kamal which forbids reciting it without ablutions is applicable, for the person reciting, to a full or a partial recitation. (Sheikh an-Nazifi et Sheikh Abu Bakr ‘Atiq)

 

Question
If a person is late and should replace Djawharatul kamal by 20 salat Fatihi and finds the groupe performing Djawharatul kamal, should he begin by catching up what he has missed of the wazifa?

Answer
If he is late and he has to replace Djawharatul kamal by 20 salat Fatihi, and finds the group reciting Djawharatul kamal, even if it is the last recitation of Djawharatul kamal, he should formulate the intention to join the group, perform 20 salat Fatihi, then he catches up the part of the wazifa that he has missed. (hajj al-hasan al-Ba‘qili)

 

Question
What is the rule for a person who is sick and cannot attend the wazifa or the Haylala: should he accomplish them at home, and if he is unable to do so during his sickness, should he make up for this?

Answer
This is one of the excuses authorizing someone not to join the group for wazifa or haylala, in this case he performs them at home according to his capabilities.

If he is unable to perform both or one of them or to perform zikr then he should leave it.

In the Al-Ira-a, it is written: “If the sickness is minor, he should accomplish his litanies as if he was fine. If conditions are such that he can accomplish them despite evident difficulties, in this case he has the choice and if he knows or thinks that he would harm himself by accomplishing them, then he should leave them. He will not need to make up for them.” Then it is written: “Then if the sick person recovers whether it is the preferable time for lazim or time of the necessity (as defined by the Fiqh of Tariqa Tidjaniya, in a case of valid excuse) then he should accomplish them” that is to say if the sick person was in a position to choose and he recovers during the time of the lazim or the wazifa or the ‘asru (heylallah), he should then perform them. (Sidi Muhammad Ibn hasan al-Jakani)

 

Question
If a woman is losing vaginal blood which is not due to her menstruations, should she replace Djawharatul kamal by 20 salat Fatihi ?

Answer
In the case of loss of blood which is not due to menstruations, the woman is considered to be sick. In this case, she should wash the vaginal region each time and perform ablutions and then she can recite Djawharatul kamal. (Sheikh Idriss El ‘Iraqi)
