The Sufi Madani Way


Tariqua Madaniyya is connected with the Prophetic tradition through a transmission chain over fourteen centuries. In 1909, it was established in Tunisia by Sidi Mohammad al-Madani (1888-1959) who had got a robust theological education at the Mosque-University Zaytouna (Tunisia). After three years he spent with his Shaikh, Sidi Alaoui in Algeria, he returned to Tunisia and dedicated himself to his Tariqua’s followers for nearly 50 years. He left about fifteen works (books and notes) dealing with most of the religious sciences, the Moslem spirituality and the authentic Sufism. Since 1959, the Tariqua Madaniyya continues under the guidance of his successor, Sidi Mohammed al-Mounaouar al-Madani, who devoted his life to spreading the pure Sufism around the world. Due to its valuable teachings, to his infinite love for the Prophet (may the peace be upon him), to its robust knowledge of the Sharia, the Tariqua continues to shine in several countries of the world today.
