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. The Diwan of Shaykh Muhammad ibn al-Habib has long been famous among the Sufis for its balance between poems expressing direct spiritual experience and those in instruction on travelling the path. Shaykh Muhammad ibn al-Habib, may Allah be pleased with him, was born circa 1290/1871 in Fez. He received a traditional education in fiqh and the sciences of Islam, Iman and Ihsan. He was Maliki in fiqh, Ash'ari in 'aqida and Darqawi-Shadhili in tariqa. Describing himself, he said: "Allah, may He be exalted said: 'As for the blessing of your Lord - declare it.' So let Muhammad ibn al-Habib, al-Amghari al-Hasani by lineage, dwelling in Fez, the poor slave of his Master, yet enriched by Him with other-than-Him, declare, in speaking of Allah's blessing, that idhn (authorisation) has come to him from Allah and the Messenger of Allah and all the awliya' of Allah, and that Allah has singled him out with sciences and secrets which only the unique man of Muhammad possesses." 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 madhhab of the school of Madina of Imam Malik, Ash'ari 'aqida, and the sciences of hadith. Later he was admitted to and became a shaykh of the Shadhili-Darqawi tariqa. He travelled widely until his death, teaching the essentials of the deen, particularly in Morocco and Algeria. He died on the way to perform hajj to the Sacred House of Allah, in the city of Blida, Algeria, on Monday, 23rd Dhu'l-Qa'da, 1391 AH/28th December 1971, and was later re-buried in his zawiya in Meknes. Shaykh Muhammad Murtada al-Boumas-houli is shaykh of the Shadhili-Darqawi tariqa. He is based on Kelaat MGouna. Thoroughly trained in the classical disciplines of Islam he is also a noted poet, and this collection contains some of his qasidas.
