An Egyptian student of al-Rashīd, Mūsā Āghā Kāẓim (or Rāsim), who seems to have obtained official recognition of the ṭarīqa under the name of al-Rashīdiyya al-Aḥmadiyya al-Idrīsiyya by 1881 from the shaykh al-sajjāda al-Bakriyya, ʿAbd al-Bāqī al-Bakrī, the government-appointed overseer of the orders. A former governor of Isnā Province and a resident of Alexandria, Mūsā Āghā had been initiated by al-Rashīd at Qūṣ in 1269/1852-53.
