Tariqa Tidjaniya

"After praising ALLAH, may His praise be amplified and may His qualities and His names be sanctified, this letter is addressed to all our brothers, the disciples of Fez and its surroundings, May ALLAH protect you from all the hardships and difficulties of temptation. Ameen.

May the peace and mercy of ALLAH and also His blessings embrace you and your situation. From the one who loves you, Ahmed Ibn Muhammad Tijani, this:

I recommend both to you and to myself that which ALLAH commands and orders us. That is to say, to preserve the sacred limits and to perform the Divine order according to your efforts and your ability, because these days, evidently, the principles of Divine order have collapsed, either entirely or partially, and people passionately love that which harms them in this world.

We can observe that there is no awakening that allows for hearts to return to ALLAH (The Glorified, The Exalted) and that allows respect for the sacred limits of ALLAH, be they orders or proscriptions.

These days, no one has any longer the power to put into practice ALLAH’s instruction in all its aspects, except for he who is adorned with the dress of the knowledge of ALLAH, or he who approaches it.

But apart from this, things being what they are, and the servant being unable to escape from that which ALLAH has decreed, he who is a blend of black and white is better than he who is totally black.

Renounce disobedience to ALLAH as much as possible, execute his order according to your capacities and atone for your sins several times day and night. Previously, we gave you several recommendations and this is sufficient overview.

In addition, there is Hisb Saifi for whoever has taken it as morning and evening prayer, at least once and at most, limitlessly, as well as Musaba'at al 'Achra; for whoever has taken it as morning and evening prayer and Salatul Fatihi at least 100 times in the morning and  in the evening.

"After praising ALLAH, may His Name be glorified and exalted, His Greatness is Immense, His Power is elevated, His Majesty Sanctified.

This letter is intended for all the followers living in Fes and in the Maghreb, may the peace of ALLAH be on you, as His Mercy and Blessing, may all this be granted to you as long as ALLAH's Kingdom lasts.

From ALLAH's poor servant, Ahmed ibn Muhammad Tijani:

We ask ALLAH, may His Power be glorified and His Immensity elevated, that He gazes upon you with the look of love and satisfaction, with that of care and overflowing grace, with that of election and choice.

May all the benefits of religion, both in this world and the next be granted to you as much as possible and may you be spared and protected from all the evil of religion both in this world and the next, until all your sins, small or large, disappear by submerging them in the ocean of His forgiveness and generosity.

May He quickly meet all your requests and needs insofar as they are not disobedient. May He powerfully help you in what is predestined for you. If they are not in compliance with your predestination, may He replace all your requests with what is better and loftier.

Know my child, may ALLAH (swt) lead you on the path of submission and realization. May He guide you, including us, on the path of success, and may He steer you on the path of his beloved. I beseech ALLAH (swt) to prolong your life in true servitude to Him, for the sole aim of worshipping Him, for His sublime countenance and His satisfaction, because He is the Magnificent.

I wish to shed the light of the torch of truth upon you, so that you may know that when you progress on the Sufi path, there are reliable supports all the way up to the Prophet Muhammad (May the prayers and the peace of ALLAH be upon him). First and foremost, you should know that we cannot travel this path - above all if we aspire to true realization - without beforehand steadfastly and entirely obeying and submitting to “the gateway”: a realized Sheikh (Muhaqiq), a spiritual guide (Murshid) who brings together the exoteric Law (Sharia) and the spiritual path (El Haqiqa), for the spiritual way is perilous and the slightest divergence from the indicated path leads to the utmost deviation from the intended aim.

Abu Al Hassan Al Sustari (may ALLAH be satisfied with him) expressed himself thus: “He (that is to say the aspirant) cannot dispense with confiding his case to someone who will ordain good, and forbid evil and who will watch over him, because the path is dangerous: few are the travelers and numerous are the hindrances. The traveler often thinks that he is in the middle of the roadway whereas he is already turning his back on his target. He would only need to stray one fingers’ distance away to deviate from the path and get lost.

In truth, the path is narrow for he who follows a soul permeated with bestial and immoral habits. The demon of this path is perfectly aware of its stations and steps.

The author of Awarif Sheikh ‘Omar Al Suhrawardi (may ALLAH be pleased with him) said “The overall objective is companionship (Suhba). If the aspirant has found the companionship of a Sheikh, it can be expected that he will achieve excellence.

The following words of Abou Yazid (may ALLAH be pleased with him) are related: “For he who has no master, the master is Satan.”

The wonderful story of the blessed Zawiya of Sidi Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret)

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) instructed Seyyidina (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) to build the blessed Zawiya and for that he should choose the best and purest location. So Seyyidina (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) chose the place where the Zawiya is presently built.

Previously, the neighborhood was called Dardas, and these days, it is called Blida. He purchased this place with his own personal and lawfully acquired funds. It was a ruin with a big fig tree and it is here that Seyyidina Ahmed Tidjani (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) is buried.

This ruin was so terrifying that nobody dared enter. According to a reliable source, at certain times, voices could be heard, as if a group was performing the dhikr and it was the place that the Majadhib (enraptured by God) used to visit.

Before its construction, the famous majdoub Sidi Lahbi (may ALLAH be pleased with him) used to put his ear to the door and say to the passers by: “Come close and listen the dhikr”. When the Zawiya was built, this majdoub said: “Fes, and especially Dardas, has been (reinforced) strengthened.

It should be known that this blessed place has merits that place it above any other Zawiya. Speaking of its merits, Seyyidina (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) said: “If the great knowers knew the merit contained in this Zawiya, they would come and erect their tents here.” Seyyidina (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret) would often speak of the worth of the Zawiya, encouraging people to come and pray here. He (may ALLAH sanctify his precious secret)  said: “The prayer in the Zawiya is accepted without any doubt.

Also among the merits contained in the blessed Zawiya, it should be known that at the beginning of the construction, Seyyidina forbade access, and then, accompanied by some of the elite among his companions, he engraved the greatest of Supreme Names on the stone and just after it he wrote: “O my God; I beseech you, O my Master by the Truth of the greatest of Your Supreme Names, protect my companions from Qaf to Qaf.” Then he instructed for it to be buried in the foundation of one of the pillar which has since be known as the golden pillar.
