جلال الدين رومي - التعصب

هذا العالم أيها الفتى مثل الشجرة
ونحن عليها مثل الثمرات نصف الناضجة
فغير الناضجة منها يشتد تعلقها بالغصن
لأنها غير طيبة ولا تليق بالقصور
وأما حين تنضج وتصير طلبة الشفاه الحلوة
فأن استمساكها بالأغصان يهن على الأثر
فشدة الاستمساك والتعصب سذاجة
ما دمت جنينا فشأنك احتسام الدم

لأن الجنين في بطن أمه يطعم الدم وهو في هذه المرحلة
يشبه فيها الثمرة غير الناضجة المستمسكة بالغصن
وهي التي صور بها الشاعر حال المتعصب
هذا التعصب الذي يدفع صاحبه إلى قسوة تتغذي
وتعيش على الدماء

As-Salaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

I read your blogs often and I find them very edifying. I would just like to know of some present day Shuyukh of the traditions that you write about (Idrisi, Sanussi, etc.)

Jazak Allaah Khayr.

Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh

The most recent two scholars from these traditions that I am aware of are Shaykh Saleh al-Jaafari (d. 1979) and lived in Cairo, was a scholar of al-Azhar and his friday lessons were immensely popular and blessed. He spread the teachings of shaykh Ahmad ibn Idris and published all his writings and made his own branch of the tariqa called the Jaafariyya Ahmadiyya Muhammadiyya.

And shaykh Muhammad bin Alawi al-Maliki (d. 2004 i think) might be considered of the same traditions. I believe he was a student or follower of shaykh Saleh al-Jaafari and was also of the same traditions. He lived in Mecca and was a famous muhaddith there.

I'm not aware of any famous scholars living now of the same traditions, though there are many famous living shaykhs of al-Azhar who have been intitiated into the Idrisi or Ahmadi Muhammadi tariqa (both going back to shaykh Ahmad ibn Idris).

One of them is Shaykh Dr. Ahmed al-Tayyib, who used to be the Grand Mufti of Egypt and then became Rector of al-Azhar University. I heard but I cannot verify that he is an Idrisid.
