The Diwan – Bughyat al-Murideen as-Saa’ireen wa Tuhfat as-Salikeen al-‘Arifeen –The Desire of Journeying Murids and the Gift to Wayfaring Gnostics

The Diwan of the Shaykh and Gnostic of Allah Sayyidi Muhammad ibn al-Habib al-Amghari al-Idrisi al-Hasani is here made available in the first ever complete Arabic-English edition of the full Diwan. It is 21.6cm by 14cm (5.5 by 8.5 inches), 500 pages and in a sturdy casebound binding. It comprises the author's own sublime introduction to the Shadhili Darqawi path, his noble Wird and collection of qasidas, extra qasidas written in commentary on the Diwan by the author himself and some of his most eminent students, some qasidas from the Diwans of Shaykh al-Fayturi and from the current head of the order, Shaykh Muhammad Murtada al-Boumas-houli as well as the latter's preface.

He died, may Allah have mercy on him, in 1391/1972 while on the way to Hajj, and is buried in his zawiya in Meknes.

He is the Sufi sharif, teacher, guide to Allah and shaykh of the Darqawi tariqa, Sayyidi Muhammad ibn al-Habib ibn as-Siddiq al-Amghari al-Idrisi al-Hasani. He was born in Fes in 1295 AH/1878 CE and had an utterly traditional education in all the sciences of Islam, Iman and Ihsan, including Qur'an recitation and commentary, fiqh of the...
