This research is focused on the involvement of Sidi Muhammad Azahari to discuss the evolution of Tariqa Ahmadiyyah and the challenges faced by him throughout living in the state. He is the figure of Tariqa Ahmadiyyah contemporary with Syeikh Muhammad Said Linggi and Haji Wan Musa Tuan Tabal as well.

The outcome of the research has proven that he had to face with the English authorities and some controversy happened with his own students until he is forced to resolve in Terengganu and finally back to Mecca.
