Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani

May ALLAH be satisfied with him

Abu Abdallah Sidi Muhammad Salassi (may ALLAH be pleased with him) was an excellent devotee, majestically pious and blessed. The face of this rigorous follower of the path was illuminated by the signs of Spiritual Opening. 

He received the Tariqa from the hands of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) to whom he had abandoned all self-will and for whom he felt deep love; to such an extent that he could not bear to be separated even an instant from his master and that he abandoned his professional occupation in order to stay constantly in his company. 

Sidi Muhammad Salassi (may ALLAH be pleased with him) was a silk maker. One day, his mother went to see Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) and said to him: “O Sidi, (these days) my son rarely visits me or all his children. I have come to request your help so that he returns to work.” When the audience with his mother was over and she had left, Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) called Sidi Muhammad Salassi (may ALLAH be pleased with him). He also called for bread, honey and melted butter, and having taken a small part himself, he offered it to his companion. When Sidi Muhammad Salassi (may ALLAH be pleased with him) had finished eating, Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) spoke to him of his worldly situation, saying: “Go and do your job , and only come to see me at the time of the Wazifa. Indeed, the wird (morning and evening Lazim) and the wazifa are sufficient for you. Do not leave your family dependent on others.”

Sidi Muhammad Salassi (may ALLAH be pleased with him) went back to work and from his place of work, he received the spiritual opening. Since then, he used to join Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) at the time of the Wazifa. 

Sidi Muhammad Salassi (may ALLAH be pleased with him) was very modest towards his master, and as a result was unable to raise his eyes before him.

Sidi Muhammad Salassi (may ALLAH be pleased with him) died in 1271 of the Hegira, may ALLAH cover him with his approval.

Abu Sada Sidi Madani Sharaibi (may ALLAH be pleased with him) was among the companions of Seyyidina Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) endowed with clairvoyant spiritual opening, steadfast religious practice and unquestionable spiritual unveiling. He was among the elite of the companions of Seyyidina Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret). He acceded to the spiritual opening within the Tariqa Muhammadiya. Sidi Ahmed Abdalawi (may ALLAH be pleased with him) had met him and observed numerous prodigies that go beyond reason.

One day, Seyyidina Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) predicted: “You are going to live in Fes although Sidi Madani Sharaibi (may ALLAH be pleased with him) had no such intention. Indeed, this is what happened.

The worthy Sidi Abu Abdallah Sidi Lakhdar (may ALLAH be pleased with him) was walking the spiritual path within the Tariqa Muhammadiya. Like his father, he was among the elite of the companions of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret).

Sidi Lakhdar (may ALLAH be pleased with him) related that he had heard Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) saying: “Give authorization to people to recite Salat Fatihi even if they do not take the litanies (that is to say without affiliation) so that they can die with faith. ”

Sidi Ahmed Abdelaoui (may ALLAH be pleased with him) said: “Without the recitation of the litanies (of the Tidjaniya) [i.e actually without affiliation], authorization for the recitation of Salatul Fatihi may be given to recite up to one thousand Salatul Fatihi, according to the capacities of the person who receives the authorization, even if he is member of a different Tariqa, and he can remain constant in the recitations that he has already received.

Sidi Lakhdar (may ALLAH be pleased with him) was buried in the village of Aliya.

Sidi Hajj Musa ibn Ahmed ibn Bettoun Semghuni (may ALLAH be pleased with him) was among the elite of Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani’s companions (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret), among those who knew him before he had obtained the authorization to transmit and who followed him afterwards, receiving, through his intermediary, secrets and lights. The eminent intermediary Sidi Muhammad Ibn Arabi Damraoui (may ALLAH be pleased with him) considered him of great worth and recognized that he had the blessings of perfect knowledge. He considered that Sidi Hajj Musa ibn Ahmed ibn Bettoun Semghuni (may ALLAH be pleased with him) held the same spiritual degree as Sidi AbdAllah ibn Sad (may ALLAH be pleased with him), one of the elite among the Seyyidina’s beloved.

Sidi Hajj Musa ibn Ahmed ibn Bettoun Semghuni (may ALLAH be pleased with him) sent a letter to Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) requesting authorization for himself and his companion to evoke the two names “Ya Rahman, ya rahim” (according to a specific method) at any and all moment. Since then, they recited every Wednesday night from Isha until sunrise on Thursday morning until their prayers were fulfilled. Subsequently, when they wanted something, they used to evoke these two names a certain number of times and then say: “O servant of these two noble names, answer us  and do this or that for us.” They used to burn jaoui incense on that night (on the eve of Thursday) without addition of any other incense at the beginning.
