His Majesty the King Mohammed VI inquired Wednesday in the rural commune of Tamgroute (province of Zagora), the proposed extension and improvement of the Zaouia [Sufi Center] Nassiria and its dependencies.

The Zaouia Nassiria includes an institute of religious studies consisting of five study rooms and a home that can house nearly 120 students.

Since its inception (year1010 of the Hijra) the Zaouia Nassiria has played a pioneering role in the various fields of science and thought, in addition to its religious and social mission.

The library, founded by Shaykh Mohamed Bennacer, has 4,400 books and manuscripts, 1,165 of which are now kept at the National Library in Rabat.

These books include the interpretation and explanation of the Holy Qur'an, jurisprudence, rites of the religion of Islam, Arabic language and literature, history and geography, logic, mathematics, astronomy and medicine.
