Sidna Shaykh had the tendency to purchase many slaves and treat them extremely good. They were taken care of much better than those of kings. However, Sidna Shaykh never freed slaves who resided with him in his house. He once said, "If any of the slaves loses the welfare he is enjoying in our house, then we have been the causes of such evil". Sidna Shaykh when he decided to free some slaves it was on the spot after buying them and straightaway they are given their freedom. He used to give ten weights of money (mathakil) for each freed slave and likewise and in one case he freed seventeen slaves on such way. Once and much to Sidna Shaykh's dismay one freed slave came along Sidna Shaykh and said, "Was it you who gave my freedom?" "Yes", responded Sidna Shaykh. Then the freed slave replied again: "O master I want to remain with you". This freed slave while serving Sidna Shaykh reached a high profile stance in terms of spirituality and God fearing position. He was seeing the Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) in daylight. He declared his sight in public and often quoted: "I am the Prophet Mohammed ibn Abdellah". (This slave is the famed Sidi Boujam'a) All the slaves of Sidna Shaykh (may Allah be satisfied with them) had the privilege to take the honourable Mohammedian wird. His has all the male slaves married to the female slaves. Sidna Shaykh among his daily occupations was of great care to them.
