Abd al-Qadir ibn Ali ibn Yusuf al-Fasi (Arabic: عبد القادر بن علي بن يوسف الفاسي; c. 1599–1680) or, in full, Abu Mohammed, Abu Sa'ud Abd al-Qadir al-Fasi ibn Abu al-Hasan Ali ibn Abu al-Mahasin Yusuf al-Qasri al-Fasi was the founder of the Shadhili zawiyya of Ksar-el-Kebir.[1] His biography, Tuhfat al-Kebir, was written by his son Abd al-Rahman al-Fasi.[2] Abd al-Qadir al-Fasi is the author of a fahrasa. This genre, in which a scholar enumerates his shaykhs and the works he read with them, can be read as a scholarly curriculum vitae. He also wrote a treatise on hadith. Abd al-Qadir was a son of Abu l-Mahasin Yusuf al-Fasi (d. 1604) the founder of the zawiya Fassiyun, which later was given the name of Abd al-Qadir al-Fasi.[3]
