Brief Description :

The Diwan of the Shaykh and Gnostic of Allah Sayyidi Muhammad ibn al-Habib al-Amghari al-Idrisi al-Hasani, may Allah have mercy upon his soul (1290/1871 – 1391/1972), is a masterful transmission of the essential teachings of the tasawwuf based squarely on the Book and the Sunnah, in a clear and accessible classical Arabic, accompanied by an uncluttered English translation.

Summary :

The Diwan of the Shaykh and Gnostic of Allah Sayyidi Muhammad ibn al-Habib al-Amghari al-Idrisi al-Hasani, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi. This edition contains only the Wird of the Shaykh and his Qasidas as well as the Diwan of Shaykh al-Fayturi, i.e. those that are ordinarily sung in gatherings of dhikr.

The Diwan is known in Arabic as 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 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.



This edition contains only the Wird of the Shaykh and the Qasidas that are ordinarily sung in gatherings of dhikr. It comprises 248 pages, and is perfectly bound in Hardback.
