At the Moulid of Abu al-Hasan ash-Shadhili a family told me “There is a man up on the mountain and he is close to God. He doesn’t respond to everyone but only when he wants. You can’t take any photos of him because he won’t appear, and if you try your camera will catch fire. He lives in a hole on top the mountain without drinking or eating anything. He wears 20 gallabeyas on top of each other.”
