Sidi Ahmed Al Tijany


The reviver of the Tijany Sufi way, Sidi Ahmed Al Tijany was of direct decent from the Prophet (PBUH). Having achieved the highest degree of nobility through perfect memorization and understanding of all matters of Islam, including, but not limited to, Quran tafsir and recitation, Hadith, and Shari'a Law and becoming the most acclaimed Islamic scholars of his time, he was granted the highest degree a believer may achieve, becoming a "Pole" (the Saint of Saints). It is through this that the Prophet (PBUH) visited Sidi Ahmed awake and requested that he establish the Tijany Tariqa (way).
