And I insist that you go to the grave of Sidi Abdullah at-Tawdi, for there you will see good. My state became very extreme and my breast became tremendously troubled, and I said, “This is death without doubt.
I returned with him and we sat in the mosque. I saw the sky as if I were above it looking at what was in it. When you are finished with them do not ask anyone to give you anything.
A tremendous cold from it struck me so much so that I thought I had died. It began to be absent only for an hour in the day and an hour in the night, until finally it became continuous. 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 look at me and I said to myself, “What does he want? He said, “There is no god but Allah, these four hundred years we have not heard the like of this. I went and when I reached the Bab al-Futuh a trembling came over me and then many shudders. 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 limbs seeing.
Three days after the death of Sidi Umar the opening happened to me and praise belongs to Allah. It began to come upon me for an hour and then vanish for another hour until it was living intimately with me. I left him and I never saw him after that day. 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.
It is only feared for him before that. I rejoiced and realised the blessing in the words of the Faqih Sidi al-Hajj Ahmad al-Jarandi, may Allah be merciful to him, for he was one of the people of right action. Return to me and I will give you everything you need. He said that his name was Abdullah al-Barnawi from Barno and that he had only come to Fez because of me.
So, I mentioned to him what I saw and what had happened to me. I looked at him and he was weeping.
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. 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. 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.
That state continued for about an hour and then stopped. He said to me, “Come with me to my home,” so I went with him to the house. We recognised Allah by the reality of our selves, and praise and thanks belong to Him.

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. He threw off the burden I carried by his words, by Allah, al-ibrkz I realised that he was one of the friends of Allah, a gnostic. That was on Thursday the 8th of Rajab H.
I saw all the oceans, the seven continents and everything in them, the beasts and all creatures.
The Opening of Shaykh Abdal-Aziz Ad-Dabbagh
Now you can search our site, courtesy of Scroogle. Allah had mercy on me because He made me meet one of the gnostics among His friends. He began to speak to me, saying, al-ibiz am sick with such and such, I saw such and such, and such and such happened to me,” mentioning everything that had happened to me. He entered and I with him, and we sat down together and he said, “Repeat al–ibriz me what you have seen.
That light came from above me and from below me, from my right and left, and from before al-irbiz and behind me. When I reached the Bab al-Jaysah bold was a black man outside the gate. I went out of our house and Allah provided me pyre four coins, by means of one of His slaves who give sadaqah.
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. That state returned to me for an hour and then stopped again. I bought fish and went to our house and the woman said to ali-briz, “Go to Sidi Ali Ibn Harazim an area in Fez and bring us oil so that we can cook the fish.
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. Suddenly there was a tremendous light like dazzling sheet lightning which seemed to come from every direction.
I was incapable of reaching Sidi Ibn Harazim and was afraid for myself and was busy weeping. I regained the first state that I originally had and gokd to town. I saw all the villages and towns, everything in this land and the Christian woman breast-feeding her child sitting in her lap. Things began to unveil themselves to me and to appear as if they were right in front of me.
