Tariqa Tidjaniya

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

The Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) ordered Seydina Ahmed Tidjani (may Allah sanctify his precious secret) to build the blessed Zawiya and for that, he had to choose the best and purest place. Seydina Ahmed Tidjani (may Allah sanctify his precious secret) chose the place where the Zawiya is currently built.

In the past, the neighborhood was called Dardas and it is known today as the Blida neighborhood. He bought this place with his pure and lawful money. It was a ruin where there was a big fig tree and it is in this very place that Seydina Ahmed Tidjani (may Allah sanctify his precious secret) is buried.

This ruin was so frightening that no one could enter it alone. It has been reported, according to a reliable source, that at times voices could be heard, as if a group was making Dhikr and it was the place of visit of the Majadhib (those attracted by God).

Before its construction, the famous majdhoub Sidi Lahbi (may Allah be pleased with him) used to put his ear on the door and say to the passers-by: "Come to this place to listen to Dhikr.” When the Zawiya was built, this majdhoub said: "Fez was strengthened and especially Dardas.” It should be known that this blessed place has merits that place it above any other Zawiya.

Seydina Ahmed Tidjani (may Allah sanctify his precious secret), speaking about its merits, said: "If the great knowers knew the merit that this Zawiya contains, they would come to install their tents there." Often, Seydina (may Allah sanctify his precious secret) mentioned the value of the Zawiya. Inciting people to come and pray there, he would say: "The prayer in the Zawiya is accepted without any doubt."

Among the merits contained in the blessed Zawiya, it is necessary to know that at the beginning of the construction, Seydina (may Allah sanctify his precious secret) forbade the access, and then, accompanied by a handful of the elite of his companions, he engraved on a stone, the greatest of the Supreme Names and afterwards he wrote:

"O my God, I ask you, O my Master, by the truth of the greatest of your Supreme Names, that you protect my companions from Qaf to Qaf." Then he ordered to bury this in the foundations of one of the pillars which is still called, today, the golden pillar.

Propriety on the path (Tariqa) consists in following the Law (Chari’a), protecting our deeds, without calling upon its rakhs (indulgences), abiding by adeb and remaining diligently in the service of the Master of all masters.

This is the meaning of adeb. Every moment (Waqt) has its own adeb. Every state (Hal) has its own adeb and every rank (Maqam) has its own adeb. By complying with adeb, all requests will be granted and all desired goals will be achieved. Turning away from adeb lead to the path of ruin; we seek protection from ALLAH against the evil of our nafs and the faults that we have committed.

According to the Fuqaha (jurists), adeb signifies the accomplishment of everything that comes after the obligations and the Sunna, that is to say the meritorious deeds which are inherent to human nature, such as sleeping and waking, eating and drinking, evoking and invoking, etc…

According to Sufi people, adeb means following any path of goodness and accomplishing any good action. So, adeb contains all the sublime qualities and good traits of character in accordance with religious duties and devotion to God.

The origins of the rosary, i.e. the beads (Subha)

In his book Musnad El Firdaws, Abi Mansur Daylami relates that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) had said (or words to that effect): “The subha is an excellent means for remembering.

It was related by Ibn Abi Shayba, Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi, Nassa-I and El Hakim that Umar (may ALLAH be pleased with them) said: “I saw the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) holding a knotted subha in his hand.

In the chapter concerning « The subha and its justifications in the Sharia » of his book "Tawassul wal wasila”, Sheikh Mussa Muhammad Ali wrote: “The subha is permitted in Islam, and it is in no way an innovation as some have claimed.”

In the commentary of the book « Azkar » by Imam Nawawi, it is written: “They count with their phalanges because they (the phalanges) will be questioned.” This is the reason why both those who dedicate themselves to worship and others began to use the Subha.

Ibn El Jawzi (may ALLAH be pleased with him) said: “The Subha is recommended (Mustahab) on the basis of the Hadith about Safiya (may ALLAH be pleased with her) which states that she used fruits pits or stones and the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) accepted this. The fact that the Subha is on a thread or detached makes no difference.”
