Ibn 'Ajiba†(1747-1809)

About Ibn 'Ajiba (1747-1809) : was a Moroccan Sufi of the Darqawi school who studied in Fez and lived all his life in and around Tetuan.

Although still relatively unknown in the English-speaking world, his writings are important for an understanding of Maghribi Sufism Ibn Arabi, more than five centuries after his death.
Students of Islam in North Africa, those interested in the Sufi tradition and spiritual seekers will welcome the publication of these treatises and the useful presentation of both Arabic text and English translation on facing pages.

He was born of a sharif family in the Anjra tribe that ranges from Tangiers to Tetuan along the Mediterranean coast of Morocco.
As a child he developed a love of knowledge, memorizing the Qur'an and studying subjects ranging from Classical Arabic grammar, religious ethics, poetry, Qur'anic recitation and tafsir.
He  undertook the study of exoteric knowledge in Qasr al-Kabir under the supervision of Sidi Muhammad al-Susi al-Samlali. It was here that he was introduced to studies in the sciences, art, philosophy, law and Qur'anic exegesis in depth.

He studied with Mohammed al-Tawudi ibn Suda, Bennani, and El-Warzazi, and joined the new Darqawiyya in 1208 AH (1793), of which he was the representative in the northern part of the Jbala region. He spent his entire life in and around Tetuan, and died in 1224 AH (1809).

He is the author of around forty works and a Fahrasa which provides interesting information concerning the intellectual centre that Tetuan had become by the beginning of the 19th century.
