This chapter discusses the important influence of the Sharīfian Daghūghiyyūn amongst the Sūfīs of the Central Sahara in the late medieval period. One of the scholars, al-Hājj Abū'l-Hudā al-Sūqī, was amongst the chief followers of Sī Mahmū. Also, two extracts from his writings appear as quotations in the very heart of the text of the Qudwa.

Keywords:   Sharīfian Daghūghiyyūn, Sūfīs, Central Sahara, al-Hājj Abū'l-Hudā al-Sūqī, Qudwa
