About 1800, Morocco, as an Islamic order, by Múlay 'l-'Arbi al-Darkawa (about 1737 - about 1823), as an offshoot of Shadhiliya via the reform movement Djazúliya. Doctrines first taught by 'Ali ibn 'Abd al-Rahman al Djamal at his school in Fez, where Múlay 'l-'Arbi studied. The order later split into several local branches, including Allawiya, Búzidiya, Harradiya, Kittaniya, and Madaniya and its branch Khawatiriya. Due to their habitual dress, followers were surnamed Abu Derbala or Derbaliyyah, meaning 'wearers of rags'. Since the 1950s has absorbed some branches of Nasiriya. Title sometimes transliterated as Derqawa.


Doctrines include: ascetic practice; renunciation of the world; contempt for wealth and power; return to the pure Sufi teachings.
