In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
An Extremely Corrupt and Disrespectful statement of the Tijaaniyyah Soofiyyah
refuted by Al-Allaamah Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Yoosuf Al-Afreeqee (rahimahullaah)
Al-Allaamah Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Yoosuf Al-Afreeqee (rahimahullaah) said: He (i.e. Ahmad Tijaani) stated in Jawaahir Al-Ma’aanee, and likewise in Al-Jaysh (page 91): Indeed, this Wird  (i.e. an act of worship by way of supplication, remembrance of Allaah etc) was preserved for me by the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and he did not make it known to any of his companions…..up until he (Tijaani) said: And perhaps he (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) delayed it due to the absence of one through whom Allaah would make it known.’’
So concerning his (i.e. Tijaani’s) statement: ‘’Indeed, this Wird was preserved for me by the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and he did not make it known to any of his companions’’ is a rejected of Allaah’s saying: [يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلرَّسُولُ بَلِّغۡ مَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيۡكَ مِن رَّبِّكَۖ ] ‘’O Messenger (Muhammad)! Proclaim (the Message) which has been sent down to you from your Lord.’’ [5:67]
And it is well known that it is impossible for the Prophets to conceal (Allaah’s Message) because it is a betrayal of trust. And there is no doubt that attributing the (act of concealment) to the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) is disbelief by consensus of the scholars.
And concerning his (i.e. Tijaani’s) statement: ‘’And perhaps he (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) delayed it due to the absence of one through whom Allaah would make it known.’’ This statement of his is tantamount to giving himself precedence over Abu-Bakr As-Siddeeq (radiyallaahu-anhu) because (Abu Bakr) was not able to receive this Wird. This is an extremely corrupt statement; rather is an extremely disrespectful speech.  [End of Quote]
 This Wird is called Salaatul Faatihah—an innovated Dhikr of Ahmad Tijaani practiced by his followers in West Africa (Gambia, Senegal etc) and other places in Africa.
