Zaouia / zawiya burial tomb shrine site of Sidi Ben Slimane - Shaykh Muhammad ibn Sulayman al-Jazuli, Marrakesh, Morocco, 2016–04-19.
Abu Abdullah Muhammad al Jazuli was born in the 15 century and was a Moroccan Sufi leader of the Berber tribe of the Jazulah.
He was most known for writing the Dala’il al-Khayrat - ‘the Guide to Goodness.’
The shrine is built around a spacious courtyard with a historically important fountain, which was a popular place to socialise during the height of the buildings use.
