The Spread of the Faydha Tijaniyyah to All Horizons
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
The following is an extract of Letter #4, from the discourses of Shaykh Ibrahim ibn ‘Abdullah Niyas al-Kawlakhi (q.s.): “The spread of the Faydha Tijaniyyah to all horizons.”
“Surely Allah, in His Eternal Wisdom, has decided to Pour Out this spiritual flood in the Thariqa’ Tijaniyyah upon the hand of its owner, and the holder of the Faydha Tijaniyyah can place it wherever he so chooses, by the Decree of the Almighty, the All-Powerful. The faydha will cover the horizons by the Power and Might of Allah, and no one will be able to hinder or prevent its spread to wherever there are Tijaniyyah. Surely, Allah Tested some of the shuyukh and the leading muqaddamat in their plotting and making false propaganda, seeking to put out the Light of Allah, but Allah Refuses except to Complete and Perfect His Light.
You have been my beloved since the time of my adolescence and that is why I am writing to you. I am warning you to not be among those who are seeking to put out the Light of Allah, out of mercy and compassion, not due to worrying about the spread of the faydha, because it will spread by the Might and Power of Allah. Whosoever desires to conceal it will only help it to spread. Whosoever seeks to turn people away from it and its bringer will only turn people from him and not it. Look with the eye of your heart and you will see the veracity and truth of my words.
There is nothing that can take place in the Kingdom of Allah except that which He Wills. I advise myself and you to have conscious awareness of Allah in public and in private, and to support the people of Allah with love, camaraderie, and alliance, in order to receive from them the Gift of Allah. Do not invite to what is not for you. Allah Says:
سُوۡرَةُ بنیٓ اسرآئیل / الإسرَاء
وَلَا تَقۡفُ مَا لَيۡسَ لَكَ بِهِۦ عِلۡمٌۚ … (٣٦)
And pursue not that of which you have no knowledge ... (Surah al-Isra’:36)
Whosoever desires honour and glory in this life and the Hereafter, let them know that to Allah Belongs all Honour and Glory.”
