The Autobiography of a Moroccan Soufi: Ahmad Ibn’Ajiba
Ibn Ajiba, an 18th-century Moroccan saint in the Darqawi Sufi lineage, wrote his or autobiography not for the pleasure of talking about himself but “to celebrate God’s kindness” by informing others of the graces bestowed on him. This account details his travels in search of knowledge, his Sufi path, and the struggles that such a search entailed.
