The Tijani Chain of Taswawwuf is Direct

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Of taswawwuf, Shaykh Ibrahim ibn Muhammad Niyas al-Kawlakhi (q.s.) said, “As for its founder, he is the Prophet (s.a.w.), to whom Allah (s.w.t.) Made it known, by means of Revelation, and inspiration.  Jibril (a.s.) came down to him, firstly, with the shari’ah.  Then, once it had been established, he came down, a second time, with the haqiqah, so the Prophet (s.a.w.) used it to motivate some of his aswhab, rather than others.  Of those who spoke of taswawwuf, and demonstrated it in practice, the first was our master, ‘Ali (k.w.), and from him, all the Sufis have received it through their chain of transmission, which is celebrated in their books, with the exception of our master, our patron, our shaykh, and our means of access to our Lord, Shaykh Abu al-‘Abbas Ahmad ibn Muhammad at-Tijani al-Hasani (q.s.), whom Allah (s.w.t.) Blessed with receiving from the Prophet (s.a.w.), mushafahatan, without mediation of any of the shuyukh.  Our chain of authority stems from him, as you will discover in this book, with Allah’s (s.w.t.) Permission.”
