Among the advice that Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) wrote to one the high State dignitaries is the following:
“In the name of ALLAH, and may the prayer be upon the Messenger of ALLAH (peace and blessings be upon him),
After praising ALLAH, His Majesty is exalted, His Greatness is powerful, His Glory is Elevated, His Magnificence and Generosity are sanctified.
This letter is addressed to the awakened scholar, with great mastery of knowledge, the honourable noble, having pleasant qualities and generous merit and behaviour, son of such and such, peace upon you and also His Mercy, His Blessing, His Salutations and His Clemency, from the one who writes this, ALLAH’s poor servant, Ahmed ibn Muhammad Tidjani el Hassani, then:
We request ALLAH, His Immensity is exalted, His Names and His Attributes are sanctified, to place you both in this world and the Hereafter, among the elite of the community, to place you among those that He sees “with His Gaze of attention”, in a special way, with His complete Love, in a purely special way until all your sins are no longer taking into account, and your good deeds are accepted in any situation. Be careful not to think that this is unlikely, because ALLAH, Glorified and Exalted, possesses a sphere that is beyond all other spheres of commandment, prohibition, of retribution both good and bad, of expression, of duties and requirements, these spheres being those concerning all ALLAH’s creatures.
