BiographyEdit

Sidi Boushaki Ez-Zaouaoui was born in 1394 ce in Aïth Aïcha, at Tizi Naïth Aïcha, in the Khechna massif, an extension of Djurdjura[4].

He began his studies in the village of Soumâa (Thala Oufella) in Thénia in 1398 ce, before joining Béjaïa in 1404 ce, very young, to continue his studies[5].

There he studied the Quran and the Maliki fiqh as a pupil with "Ali Menguelleti", a recognized theologian from Kabylie[6].

Béjaïa was then at the beginning of the fifteenth century a religious center and a place of influence of Sufism[7].

He made his destination in 1415 to Tunis, where he deepened his knowledge of Maliki Madhhab[8].

There he studied the tafsir of the Quran at the judge Abu Abdallah Al Kalchani, and he received the Maliki fiqh from Yaakub Ez-Zaghbi[9].

He was a student of Abdelwahed Al Fariani in the foundations (Oussoul) of Islam[10].

He returned in 1420 to the mountains of Béjaïa where he deepened in Arabic at Abd El Aali Ibn Ferradj[11].

He went to Constantine in 1423 where he lived for many years, and he received the teachings in the Muslim faith (Aslain) and logic in "Abu Zeid Abderrahmane", nicknamed "El Bez"[12].

He studied prose, verse, fiqh and the majority of the theological sciences of the time at Ibn Marzuq El Hafid (1365 - 1439), the Maghreb and Tlemcen scholar who had visited Constantine to preach his knowledge, not to be confused with his father Ibn Marzuq El Khatib (1310 - 1379)[13].

He joined Mecca for pilgrimage and study[14].

He died in 1453, and was buried in the Thenia Mountains in his native Kabyle tribe[15]
