Lalla Mimouna ( Arabic : للا ميمونة) is a city in Morocco . It is located in the region of Rabat-Salé-Kenitra . The village's name comes from Lalla Mimouna, Muslim Saint of the viii th century celebrated by Moroccan Jews. Émile Dermenghemtells an anecdote about Lalla Mimouna: Abd al-Wahid b. Zayd wished to know who would be his neighbor in paradise and he was told: "O 'Abdalwahid, you will have for neighbor Mimoûna the black one". And where is she, this Mimoûna the black-he continued to ask with more audacity than discretion. At Banou-Un Tel, in Koûfa. He went to Koûfa and inquired about Mimoûna. It was, she is told, a madwoman who grazed sheep on the side of the cemetery. He found her praying. The flock was grazing all by itself and that was all the more wonderful because the sheep were mixed with wolves and the wolves did not eat the sheep and the sheep were not afraid of the wolves (...) How is it? asked Ibn Zeid, "how are these wolves doing so well with these sheep?"
