Sidi Hajj Ahmed Djawiyed Tanji (may ALLAH be pleased with him) is a man of God whose love for our Master Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was passionate. Before meeting Seyyidina Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret), he was searching for the person who would take his hand on the path. Committed to the fulfilment of his wishes, he wore the robe of the disciple who had submitted to his master. Every time he heard speak of a Sheikh, he travelled to meet him and to benefit from him until he heard that Seyyidina Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) was in Fes.

He left the region of Tanja to meet him. He reached Fes on a Friday at noon (zawwal) and entered the Qarawiyin Mosque to accomplish the Jumua. He approached the mihrab and found a place in the first row, near to where a kind of rug had been placed. He performed the Salaah of Tahiyyat-ul-Masjid (the prayer of greeting the mosque) beside this rug and then Seyyidina Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) came to pray at this very place which had been prepared for him. Sidi Hajj Ahmed Djawiyed Tanji (may ALLAH be pleased with him) was overwhelmed by an intense and unfamiliar spiritual state. He had never seen Seyyidina Sheikh Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) before and did not know him.

He lived in Fes, where he was unanimously recognised by all scholars who drew the light of knowledge from his niche and followed the path towards Truth both in the Sharia and the Tariqa under his guidance, a path on which many people endowed with understanding have stumbled.

This love was so renowned that, seeing him in their company, some thought that he was affiliated to their path, which was not the case.

Abu AbdALLAH Sidi Bouziane (may ALLAH be pleased with him), holder of secrets and apparent spiritual opening, was “the key to goodness and success”. He was among those closest to Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) and loved by him. He was also among those who, during his lifetime, had accessed to his special secrets, although he was very young. He was unable to control his nafs and began to use his power of spiritual of governance for things whose worth he could not estimate. Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) removed this power until he had grown up and reached maturity.

He received these secrets because his father wanted, more than anything, for Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) to transmit them to him but Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) replied: “He is still young and I fear that he will not be able to assume this charge.” However, despite this reply, the father insisted and Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) instructed him to go and see a certain Wali who was to be found near Ajissa gate, who would transmit the secret to him, but he warned him against causing harm to his companions or flaunting his prodigies.
