Question: Is it true that Ahmed Tidjani said that all those who see him on Mondays and Fridays will enter Paradise?

 

Answer:

Yes indeed, Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (May Allah sanctify his precious secret) received this immense grace directly from the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) in an awakened state. He (peace and blessings be upon him) said (or words to that effect): 

"By the Power of my Lord! On Mondays and Fridays,  I do not leave you, even for a moment, from Fajr to Maghrib; and with me there are 7 angels, and for all those who see you during these two days, the 7 angels write their names on a gold tablet and so, they are considered people of Paradise and I will witness that. Busy yourselves with abundant prayers upon me during these two days. I hear and answer every prayer you pray upon me and so it is for each of your deeds that are exposed to me, and may Peace be upon you."

It is reported by the companions of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH be pleased with him), who had reached the spiritual opening, that the particular blessing of these two days reaches only those who had been chosen by ALLAH The All Knower to be among the people of bliss. So only those people will see him. Even if they are non-believers when they see him, they will die as believers.

It was reported by the elite of the companions of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH be pleased with him) that a Jew was sewing clothes for Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH be pleased with him). Some companions sat next to the Jew and began discussing amongst themselves the immense blessing of the vision of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH be pleased with him) during these two days. They did not notice, but the Jew had heard all their discussion. The Jewish tailor made sure he finished his sewing on one of the two days, Monday or Friday.  He sought permission to show his work to Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH be pleased with him), saying that he wanted to obtain dua from Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH be pleased with him). Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may Allah sanctify his precious secret) was consulted about the request and he accepted. So the tailor entered and sat down beside him, looking at his face for a long time, and said to him, "O Sidi! I looked at your face on this day!"

Question: Is it true that the Tidjani disciples claim that the status of the Djawharatu-l-Kamal is greater than that of the Holy Quran?

 

Answer:

 This claim is false. It is indisputable that the status of the Quran is more important than that of Djawharatu-l-Kamal for the following three reasons:

 

  1. The Quran is the Word of The Divine Essence. Therefore, it is the most important form of Zikr.

In Djawahiru-l-Ma’ani, Seyyidina Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) said: “The prominence of the Quran over all other words, whether they are formulas of Zikr or prayers upon the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), including Salat Fatihi, is more radiant than the sun. This radiance is implementing in the very principles of the Shari’a itself (Quran and the authentic prophetic hadith)”.

Question: I stopped reciting the Tidjani litanies and now want to resume, what shall I do?

 

Answer: 

As regards neglecting Tidjaniya compulsory litanies, you need to know that:

- Giving them up in the case of rejecting Tariqa Tidjaniya, or being sceptical about it (thinking that Tijaniyya is not a straight path...), needs re-affiliation.

- However, if this is due to laziness --so without rejecting the way-- then your affiliation is still valid but you have to make up all the missed compulsory litanies i.e. 2 lazim and 1 wadhifa per day (hadhra of the Friday can't be made up, so missing it is a loss of great benefits and blessings), at your own pace.

Question: Is it authorized to appoint women Muqaddam in the Tidjaniya Tariqa?

 

Answer:

Taqdim for women has indeed been the object of diverging opinions. Some forbid it, others allow it, although their role may be limited to women; however others authorize their role to include both women and men unconditionally.

This divergence is due to the fact that there does not seem to be any clear and precise example of a woman being appointed to this role at the time of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret). However, an allusion is to be found in a letter from Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) written by Sidi Muhammad ibn Mechri (may ALLAH be pleased with him). In this letter, he greets a group of disciples from Fez, including a woman. Here is the relevant passage: “[…] Our words are addressed to our beloved, to those who are most dear to us, holders of pure qualities and enlightened states, our dear friend and sincere beloved Sidi Hajj Tayeb Qabab, his son, our beloved Abu AbdALLAH Sidi Muhammad and his children, and the pure, eminent and noble lady, The Muqaddima Fatima […] (Kashf el Hijab - Sidi Hajj Tayeb Qabab)

Among the companions of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret), Sidi Muhammad El Hafiz Shinguitti (may ALLAH be pleased with him) who had been educated in the palms of his noble hands for two consecutive years, was the only one to appoint his wife to the role of Muqqadam. She was a saintly woman, renowned for her spiritual opening, and she was among the ten Muqaddam that her husband was authorized to appoint. This does not mean that others did not do so, but there are no precise references. Sheikh Umar Futiyu (may ALLAH be pleased with him) appointed his eldest daughter, the pious knower of ALLAH, Fatima Madaniya to this position.
