Shaykh Sayyid Muhammad bin Ahmad ad-Dandarawi – (1813-1874) radhiAllahu 'anhu

Shaykh Sayyid Muhammad ad-Dandarawi was born in Dandara, Sa’id in Egypt.

Beliau adalah antara murid-murid Tuan Shaykh Sayyid Ibrahim ar-Rashid radhiAllahu 'anhu. He was among the students of Shaykh Sayyid Ibrahim ar-Rashid radhiAllahu 'anhu. Apart from receiving authorization (ijazah) of the Tariqah Ahmadiah from his Sufi Guide ie Shaykh Sayyid Ibrahim radhiAllahu 'anhu, he also inherited the akhlak, knowledge and secrets of his guide. [1] He was highly determined to spread Tariqah Ahmadiah not only to the Arabian Peninsula but also other further regions such as India, Africa dan South East Asia.

Like the other Tariqah Ahmadiah Shaykhs, Shaykh Sayyid Muhammad radhiAllahu 'anhu also received the honour of meeting the Prophet shallAllahu 'alaihi wasallam whilst awake.  [2]. He then received some amal not received by his two Shaykhs. Among them includes the recitation of “La ilaha ilallahu wallahu akbar” 4 times during Initiation. [3] This amal has its merits mentioned in a sohih hadith.

With that, the name of the Tariqah is thus attributed to Al-Qutb Ar-Rais Shaykh Sayyid Ahmad bin Idris radhiAllahu 'anhu and the two other Qutbs after Sayyid Ahmad bin Idris radhiAllahu 'anhu. Shaykh Sayyid Muhammad al-Dandarawi radhiAllahu 'anhu is the final main leader of Tariqah Ahmadiah. Allah, the Most Exalted, has placed this tariqah in a high station based on sound dalils which can be viewed from all aspects.

There is no mursyid for he who is with Tariqah Ahmadiah other than Shaykh Sayyid Muhammad ad-Dandarawi radhiAllahu 'anhu, even after his death. He has said, “I am your guide whilst alive or dead.” This means that the relationship between the murid and his guide will still exist even after the guide’s passing away.[4]

Shaykh Sayyid Muhammad bin Ahmad ad-Dandarawi radhiAllahu 'anhu passed away in Madinah al-Munawwarah on 29 Muharram 1909 (1327 H). [5]
