Shaykh Muhammad al Hashimi - His Life and works

The Shadhili order is one of the greatest Sufi orders in the world of Islam. It is renowned for its adherence to the prescription of the Shari’a, its insistence on sacred knowledge, its modernisation and its emphasis on the principle of gratitude. The legacy and achievements of many of its early masters are well known. There are also many contemporary Shadhili sufi masters who can easily be compared, in their influence and their achievements, to their early predecessors, yet very little is known about them. Recent works on Shaykh Ahmed al-Alawi and shaykh Ahmad Ibn Ajiba have slightly rectified this state of affairs, but more work is needed on the Shadhiliyya and its masters. There are moreover very few works in European Languages that deal with the Shadhili method of spiritual training. The present study tackles both concerns. The life and works of the great Algerian Shadhili Master Mohammad Al- Hashimi (1881-1961) are exposited and his method of spirituality trainings is amply explained. The details of this spiritual method will help to explain, albeit indirectly, how the Shadhilis try to accede to the ‘Kingdom of Heavens ‘while, at the same time, leading a harmonious and peaceful existence with their fellow Muslims as well as with the rest of the world.
