اللهم صل على سيدنا محمد الفاتح لما أغلق والخاتم لما سبق ناصر الحق بالحق والهادي إلى صراطك المستقيم وعلى آله حق قدره ومقداره العظيم

Tariqa Tidjaniya

Letter from Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani for the attention of the disciples from the area of Guemar (Algeria), dictated to his scribe the Muqaddem Sidi Ahmed ibn AbdSalem Filaly (may ALLAH be satisfied with him).

“Praise be to ALLAH. From the illustrious Imam of noble lineage, guide for creatures, the radiant evidence of Islam, the Knower of ALLAH, Abou l Abbas, our Lord and Master Ahmed ibn Mohammed ibn Salim Tidjani the Hassanite Sherif: “To each and every one of our beloved, endowed with our affection, the disciples of Guemar.

May the Peace and Mercy of ALLAH the Most High, His blessing, His Salutations and Satisfaction be upon you as long as existence and void do not merge. I give thanks to ALLAH for you, He other than whom there is no divinity. Then, I beseech ALLAH (The Glorified, The Exalted) to grant you the gift of always sufficing you, His Guardianship, His Defense, His Protection, His Alliance, His Guidance, His Attention, His Care, His Supervision, His Custody, His Choice, His Power, His Invincibility and His Safeguard. From Him comes succor and in Him we place our infallible trust.

I recommend the Muqaddem to exhort the disciples, to remind them, to advise them, to visit their ailing, to attend their funerals, to take care of the healthy and to insure relief from their worries, to patiently endure their annoyance, to recognize their qualities, to be lenient with their mistakes, to hasten to satisfy formally them, to reconcile, to promote harmony in their hearts, without considering himself more privileged than them. He should teach the ignorant, remind the forgetful, and motivate the careless. He should not show them miserliness with what he holds in his hands.

After evoking the Name of ALLAH (The Glorified, The Exalted) and the prayer and the peace upon the Messenger of ALLAH,

I exhort and advise you to fear ALLAH (The Glorified, The Exalted), both in secret and in public, to purify your heart from any opposition to His Order, to rely on ALLAH with your heart, to accept His decisions in all circumstances, to bear the hardships of the paths that He decrees in all situations, and, for this, depend on abundant evocations, with the Presence of the Heart as much as possible, this will help you to follow my advice.

Know that the greatest evocation of ALLAH, for the benefit that it brings, the most efficient and advantageous, is the prayer upon the Messenger of ALLAH (peace and blessings be upon him) with the presence of the heart. This prayer takes care of all requests, both in this world and the next, to repel and attract in all matters. He who recites it profusely will become one of the greatest and sincere friends of ALLAH (The Glorified, The Exalted).

The second thing that I exhort you to do is to renounce using money that is declared illegal by the Law, for food, clothing and lodging, because that which is lawful is the pole around which all the stars of adoration orbit. He who turns away from that which is lawful will also have turned away from all the benefit related to adoration.  Beware of saying: “But where is it to be found?” Certainly, it does exist abundantly in every land and in every age, but you will only find it having sought to perfectly fulfil the commandments of ALLAH, both interiorly and exteriorly; and considering the requirements of the moment, if we cannot find what is undoubtedly lawful, then a scrupulous knowledge of jurisprudence is required in this domain as well as a wide knowledge of the prescriptions of the Law. He who conforms to this, will have no difficulty finding that which is lawful.

"After mentioning ALLAH, and the prayer and salutation upon the Messenger of ALLAH (peace and blessings be upon him), here is some advice for all those seeking advice for themselves, and the advice from the Lord is defined by the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) who said: “The deen (religion) is naseehah (advice, sincerity).” We said “To whom?” He (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) responded: “To Allah, His Book, His Messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk.”

Among this advice, the first is the fear of ALLAH, beside whom there is no Divinity except Him. As Ali (may ALLAH be pleased with him) advised his children with these words: "O my sons, I exhort you to fear ALLAH, The Immense, in secret as in public, to be honest in your speech in satisfaction as in anger, to observe justice towards friends as towards enemies, to be moderate in wealth as in poverty."

Then, it is necessary to take refuge in ALLAH and to rely on Him when afflicted with trials and tribulations, and to attach the heart to ALLAH (The Glorified, The Exalted) as much as possible according to one's rank with ALLAH. One needs to adopt a respectful restraint towards ALLAH (The Glorified, The Exalted) such as defined in the word of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) who said: "Have a true respectful restraint towards ALLAH". They said: "We have this respectful restraint, praise be to ALLAH". He said: "What you’re saying is not what I mean, for the respectful restraint is to preserve the head and what it contains, to safeguard the belly and what it gathers, to remind oneself of death and trials. One who longs for the hereafter forsakes the ornaments of this world; and whoever achieves all this, has a true respectful restraint towards ALLAH".

After mentioning the Name of ALLAH and praising Him and saluting the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), may the Peace, Mercy and Blessings of ALLAH be upon you.

Then, I exhort both you and myself to preserve the commandments in the following prophetic words: "There are three causes of salvation and three causes for going astray”:

As for the causes of salvation, they are: the fear of ALLAH (Taqwa ALLAH) both in secrecy and in public, the veracity of the spoken word, both in contentment and in anger, steadfastly moving towards the goal, whether in richness or in poverty. As for the causes of going astray, these are: surrendering to avidity, following one’s passion, self-satisfaction with one's own opinion.

And also:  "Under the firmament, there is no divinity more worshipped than a passion pursued

And also: "To refrain from interfering with what does not concern you is the proper practice of Islam”

And also:  "Do not wish for confrontation with the enemy, rather, ask ALLAH for salvation. If  you do meet the enemy, then show patience".

Although this relates to fighting disbelievers on the path of God, these days it also relates to the need to be lenient towards evil coming from all people.

When a person wishes harm upon others deep down in his heart, ALLAH will direct these people against him in such a way that he will not be able to do anything against them. The servant should beseech ALLAH to protect him from provoking evil and discord among people.
