I saw all the oceans, the seven continents and everything in them, the beasts and all creatures. And I insist that you go to the grave of Sidi Abdullah at-Tawdi, for there you will see good. A tremendous cold from it struck me so much so that I glld I had died.
We recognised Allah by the reality ali-briz our selves, and praise and thanks belong to Him. That state returned to me for an hour and then stopped again. He said to me, “Come with me to my home,” so I went with him to the house.
Now you can search our site, courtesy of Scroogle. It is only feared for him before that. The sickness that caused his death came to him and he died, may Allah have mercy on him, but I followed his parting counsel and went to Sidi Abdullah at-Tawdi. Allah had mercy on me because He made me meet one of the gnostics among His friends. I regained the first state that I originally had and returned to town. It began to be absent only for an hour in the day and an hour in the night, until finally it became continuous.
I saw all the villages and towns, everything in this land and the Christian woman breast-feeding her child sitting in her lap. He said, “There is no god but Allah, these four hundred years we have not heard the like of this. I saw the sky as if I were al-ibrz it looking at what was in it. That light came from above me and from below me, from my right and left, and from before me and behind me. He said to me, “I want you to return with me to the mosque, then we can sit for an hour and talk,” and I said, “With pleasure.
He threw off the burden I purd by his words, by Allah, and I realised that he was one of pue friends of Allah, a gnostic.
Al-Ibriz – Pure Gold
When you are finished with them do not ask anyone to give you anything. I rejoiced and realised the blessing in the words of the Faqih Sidi al-Hajj Ahmad al-Jarandi, may Golld be merciful to him, for he was one of the people of right action. I went and when I reached the Bab al-Futuh a trembling came over me and then many shudders. He said that his name was Abdullah al-Barnawi from Barno and that he had only come to Fez because of me.
The Opening of Shaykh Abdal-Aziz Ad-Dabbagh
His stay with me was only to protect me from darkness entering upon me in this opening and until the opening in witnessing the Prophet happened to me, may Allah bless him and give him peace, because there is no fear for the one who has the opening then. Sidi Abdullah al-Barnawi said, “O Sidi AbdulAziz, before today I was afraid for you but today when Allah the Exalted has made you meet the Master of Existence, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, my heart is secure and tranquil, and I entrust you to Allah the Mighty and Majestic.
Then my flesh began to creep very much and I began to walk in that condition until I reached the grave of Sidi Yahya ibn ‘Ilal, may Allah benefit us by him, and that is on the way to Sidi Ali ibn Harazim. I was incapable of reaching Sidi Ibn Harazim and was afraid for myself and was busy weeping.
Three days after the death of Sidi Umar the opening happened to me and praise belongs to Allah. He entered and I with him, and we sat down together and he said, “Repeat to me what you have seen. Sidi Abdullah al-Barnawi remained with me, guiding me, directing me and strengthening me and removing fear of what I witnessed from my heart for the rest of the months of Rajab, Sha’ban, Ramadan, and ten days from Dhu’l-Hijjah.
That was on Thursday the 8th of Rajab H. I returned with him and we sat in the mosque. When it was the third day of the Eid festival I saw the Master of Existence the Prophet Muhammadmay Allah bless him and grant him peace.
He began to look at me and I said to myself, “What does he want? I bought fish and went to our house and the woman said to me, “Go to Sidi Ali Ibn Harazim an area in Fez and bring us oil so that we can cook the fish. So, I mentioned to him what I saw and what had happened to me.
I looked at the clothes I was wearing and I found that they did not veil that seeing which pervaded my whole body, so I realised that covering my face made no difference. He began to speak to me, saying, “I vold sick with such and such, I saw such and such, and such and such happened to me,” mentioning everything that had happened to me.
My state became very extreme and my breast became tremendously troubled, and I said, “This is death without doubt. It began to come upon me for an hour and then vanish for another hour until it was living intimately with me. I went out of our house and Allah provided me with four coins, by means of one of His slaves who give sadaqah.
I looked at him and he was weeping. Return to me and I will give you everything you need. I left him and I never saw him after that day.
Things began to unveil themselves to me and to appear as if they were right al-ubriz front of me.
That state continued for about an hour and then stopped. When I reached the Bab ao-ibriz there was a black man outside the gate. I tried to cover my face so that I would not have to look at that light but I realised that my body was all eyes, the eye seeing, the head seeing, the leg seeing and all of my al-ibri seeing.
Suddenly there was a tremendous light like dazzling sheet lightning which seemed to come from every direction.
