Wahhabi work in Tunisia

""Several manuscripts were burnt in the fire, notably 'Annaqd', a book that's part of the work of the 'wali' (saint) the mausoleum was erected for, and which carries the wali's 'tariqa' teachings. These manuscripts are extremely rare; only a few copies exist. Korans were also burnt. They were precious because they were decorated with calligraphy by Sidi Bou Said's closest disciples.""
