[1] An Extremely Corrupt and Disrespectful statement of the Tijaaniyyah Soofiyyah

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

An Extremely Corrupt and Disrespectful statement of the Tijaaniyyah Soofiyyah

refuted by Al-Allaamah Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Yoosuf Al-Afreeqee (rahimahullaah)

Al-Allaamah Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Yoosuf Al-Afreeqee (rahimahullaah) said: He (i.e. Ahmad Tijaani) stated in Jawaahir Al-Ma’aanee, and likewise in Al-Jaysh (page 91): Indeed, this Wird [1] (i.e. an act of worship by way of supplication, remembrance of Allaah etc) was preserved for me by the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and he did not make it known to any of his companions…..up until he (Tijaani) said: And perhaps he (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) delayed it due to the absence of one through whom Allaah would make it known.’’

So concerning his (i.e. Tijaani’s) statement: ‘’Indeed, this Wird was preserved for me by the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and he did not make it known to any of his companions’’ is a rejected of Allaah’s saying: [يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلرَّسُولُ بَلِّغۡ مَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيۡكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ‌ۖ ] ‘’O Messenger (Muhammad)! Proclaim (the Message) which has been sent down to you from your Lord.’’ [5:67]

And it is well known that it is impossible for the Prophets to conceal (Allaah’s Message) because it is a betrayal of trust. And there is no doubt that attributing the (act of concealment) to the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) is disbelief by consensus of the scholars.

And concerning his (i.e. Tijaani’s) statement: ‘’And perhaps he (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) delayed it due to the absence of one through whom Allaah would make it known.’’ This statement of his is tantamount to giving himself precedence over Abu-Bakr As-Siddeeq (radiyallaahu-anhu) because (Abu Bakr) was not able to receive this Wird. This is an extremely corrupt statement; rather is an extremely disrespectful speech. [2] [End of Quote]

Likewise, the Moroccan Scholar Al-Allaamah Taqiyudeen Al-Hilaali (rahimahullaah) wrote a Book against the Tijaaniyyah titled: Al-Hidaayatul Haadiyah Ilaa At-Tareeqah At-Tijaaniyyah.
