Le soufi et juriste Muḥammad al-Ḥarrāq (m.1845), son œuvre spirituelle et juridique

Abstract : This work analyses Sufism in Morocco in the 19th century through the work of the Moroccan jurist and Sufi Muḥammad al-Ḥarrāq (m.1845). It highlights his spiritual reform and his contribution to the enrichment of the Sufi heritage, through his biography and the thematic analysis of his fifty letters. Al-Ḥarrāq is known mainly in the popular memory of northern Morocco for his Sufi poems expressing spiritual drunkenness. His work reveals to us through his practical education and correspondence a model of Sufi-faqīh that puts ethics, humanism and the noble purposes of the Law at the heart of the fiqh. The new ṭarīqa that he created – the Darqāwiyya Ḥarrāqiyya - differs from the mother Darqāwiyya by a desire for perfect social integration in its environment, the beauty of the initiating method and an increased emphasis on the role of exoteric science in the education of the disciples of the Sufi Way; and conversely on the vital role of spiritual education in any quest for exoteric science.
