For the 19th-century historian see Ahmad ibn Khalid al-Nasiri. Ahmed ibn Nasir al-Dar'i (sometimes spelled Bennacer) (1647–1717) was a Moroccan Sufi writer and head of the zawiya of the Nasiriyya brotherhood at Tamegroute, son of its founder Mohammed ibn Nasir. He made six pilgrimages to Mecca and made each of these pilgrimages into a journey of several years. Sidi Ahmed ibn Nasir travelled to Ethiopia, Arabia, Egypt, Iraq and Persia. During his travels he took the opportunity of establishing new branches of the Sufi brotherhood. He wrote a series of memoirs of his journeys called the Rihla (partly translated by A. Berbrugger in 1846). He brought back numerous books from all parts of the Islamic world, which formed the basis of the library at Tamegroute.
