here to know about the books written and his sayings
Qarazi narrates that I was travelling with a group of traders along with fourteen
camels carrying sugar. We stopped for the night in a dangerous jungle. In the
early hours of the night my four loaded camels disappeared, which were not found
even after a lot of search. The group also departed. The camel driver stayed back
with me . In the morning I suddenly remembered that my Mentor, The King of Baghdad
Huzoor Ghous-e-Pak had told me that whenever you get stuck in any problem then
call me (my name), Allah willing that problem will be solved, hence I requested
this way: YA SHAIKH ABDUL QADIR! MY CAMELS ARE LOST.
All of sudden I saw a saintly man dressed in white clothes on a sand dune towards
east, who was signaling me to come to him. As soon as I along with my camel driver
reached over there the saintly Man disappeared from vision. We were strangely
looking here and there when we suddenly spotted those four lost camels sitting
under the sand dune. Then what happened was that we caught the camels and re-joined
the group. When Sayyed-e-na Shaikh Ab-ul-Hasan Ali Khabbaz was told the incident
of the lost camels He said that Hazrat-e-Shaikh Ab-ul- Qassim has said that I
have heard Sayyed-e-na Shaikh Muhi-ud-Din Abdul Qadir Jilani saying:
ONE WHO CRIES OUT FOR MY HELP DURING SOME PROBLEM, THE PROBLEM GETS SOLVED, THE
ONE WHO CALLS OUT MY NAME IN ANY HARDSHIP, THAT HARDSHIP; GETS DISMISSED, THE
ONE WHO USED ME AS A SOURCE TO ASK ALLAH FOR SOME NEED, IT WILL BE FUFILLED. THE
PERSON WHO PRAYES TWO RAK'AT OF NAFL AND IN EACH RAK'AT AFTER SURAH FATIHA RECITIES
SURAH IKHLAS ELEVEN TIMES, AFTER SAYING SALAAM i.e AFTER FINISHING THE PRAYER,
SENDS DUROOD-O-SALAAM ON THE KING OF MADEENAH AND THEN WALKS A DISTANCE OF ELEVEN
STEPS TOWARDS BAGHDAD SHAREEF AND CALLS OUT MY NAME AND PRESENTS HIS NEED, ALLAH
WILLING, THAT NEED WILL BE FULFILLED'.
should I go from door to door when I have a mentor like You. I received every
thing from you 'O, Ghous-e-Azam Dastgir.
Islamic Brother! It is possible that in someone's mind a thought may arise that
we should only ask Allah for any help and no one else, because when Allah is the
One who helps then why should we ask anyone else for help? The answer to this
is that this is the way he makes an unknown number of people go astray. When Allah
has not refrained from asking for help from someone else then how can someone
get the right of saying that don't ask for help from anyone but Allah. Look in
the Holy Quran, where Allah has in various verses allowed asking for help from
someone else, but even though being the Omnipotent in every way,. He has asked
for help from His beings. Therefore it is stated:
If you will help the religion of Allah, Allah will help you. (Part-26, Sura: Muhammad)
KING OF JINNS
bin Mahfooz states that once my daughter, Fatima, all of a sudden vanished from
the roof of my house. I got worried and want to the blessed presence of Sayyed-e-na
Ghouse-e-Pak and requested for help. He told me to go to Karkh, and during the
night sit in a deserted place forming a fort (Hisar) around myself. Over there
think about em and say:" Bismillah" During the darkness of night groups
of Jinns will pass by you, their faces will be very strange, do not get scared
by looking at them, at the time of sahari the KING OF JINNS will come to you and
will ask you about your requirement. Tell him, "Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani
has sent me from Baghdad (my requirement is that) you search my daughter."
Hence, I went to the ruins of KARKH and followed the instructions of Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam.
During the silence of night, horrifying Jinns kept on passing outside my hisar.
The faces of the Jinns were so horrifying that I could not look at them. At the
time of sahari, the KING OF JINNS came on a horse back, there were Jinns surrounding
him. He asked my demand from outside the hisar. I told him that Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam
has sent me to you. As soon as he beard this, he got down the horse and sat on
the ground. The other Jinns too sat outside the hisar.
narrated the incident of the disappearance of my daughter. He announced amongst
all the Jinns, "Who has taken the girl?" Within moments the Jinns caught
a Chinese Jinn and presented him as the culprit. The King of the Jinns asked him
why did you pick the girl up from the city of the Highest Cadre in Spiritual Pivot
(Qutub) of the time? He said, while shivering, Your Highness! After looking at
her I fell in love with her. The King ordered the Chinese Jinn to be beheaded
and returned my wonderful daughter to me. I thanked the King of the Jinns and
said, as Allah will! You are an ardent lover of Sayyed-e-na Ghouse-e-Pak. He then
replied, I SWEAR UPON ALLAH WHEN HUZOOR GHOUS-E-PAK LOOKS TOWARDS US, ALL THE
JINNS START TREMBLING. WHEN ALL NOMINATES AS QUTUB OF TIME THEN ALL THE JINNS
AND HUMANS ARE ORDERED TO FOLLOW HIM. (Bahjaa-tul-Asraar)
the Jinns start trembling (with fear) on hearing your name. Your Have that majestic
awe 'O, Ghous-e-Azam Dastgir.
Abdul Qadir Jelani was a noted Hanbali preacher, Sufi sheikh and the eponymous
founder of the Qadiri Sufi order (selsela). He was born in Ramadan AH 470 (about
AD 1077) in the Persian province of Gilan (Iran) south of the Caspian sea. His
contribution and renown in the sciences of Sufism and Sharia was so immense that
he became known as the spiritual pole of his time, al-Gauth al Azam (the "Supreme
Helper" or the "Mightiest Succor"). His writings were similar to
those of al-Ghazali in that they dealt with both the fundamentals of Islam and
the mystical experience of Sufism.
and Early Life
Abdul Qadir Jilani was a Sufi master and Syed (descendant
of the Prophet Muhammad) from both his father and mother. His father Abu Saleh
Jangidost, was an illustrious and God-fearing man. Once while engrossed in meditation
by the bank of a river he saw an apple floating down the river. He picked it up
and ate it. It struck to him that he ate the apple without paying for it so he
set out in search of the owner, on the bank of the river and at last reached the
owner of the apple orchard "Abdullah Somai" whom he requested to tell
him the price of the apple, Abdullah Somai replied that it was an expensive thing.
Syed Abu Saleh replied that he had not much by way of worldly material but he,
could serve him for compensation. Abdullah Somai then asked him to work for a
year in the orchard. In course of time the duration was extended several times.
In the end Abdullah Somai admitted that he had served him in excess of the price
and desired to reward him. Abu Saleh hesitated in accepting it but when Abdullah
Somai persisted, he relented. He said he had a daughter, blind of eyes, handicapped
of hands and feet and wanted to give her in marriage to him. In this way Abu Saleh
was married to Abdullah Somai's daughter, Syeda Fatimah. To his astonishment found
her wondrously beautiful and wholesome. He complained to his father-in-law that
he found her exactly the opposite to what he had described her. Abdullah Somai
insisted on the truthfulness of his statement. She was blind because she had not
seen any Ghair Mehram (a man who could marry her). She was mute because she had
not uttered a word repugnant to the Shariah (Islamic law). She was deaf because
she had not heard anything inconsistent with the Shariah. She was handicapped
of hand and feet because she had never moved in the direction of evil.
Qadir Jilani's father died soon after and the young orphan was reared up by his
mother and his grandfather, Abdullah Somai.
At the age of 18 he went to Baghdad on AH 488 (1095 AD), where he pursued the
study of Hanbalite law under several teachers. His mother sewed 40 gold coins
in his quilt so that he might spend them when needed. The dacoits struck the caravan
on the way, and looted all the travelers of their belongings. They asked him what
he had. He replied that he had 40 gold coins. The dacoits took his reply for a
joke and took him to their chief, who asked him the same question and he again
replied that he had 40 gold coins. He demanded him to show, upon whom he tore
away, the quilt and produced the gold coins. He was surprised and asked him why
he had given the hidden gold coins when he could have kept them hidden. Young
Abdul Qadir Jilani replied that he was travelling to Baghdad to receive education
and his mother had instructed him to speak the truth. This left a deep effect
on the chief of the dacoits and he gave up looting.
Qadir received lessons on Islamic Jurisprudence from Abu Said Ali al-Mukharrimi,
Hadith from Abu-Bakra-bin-Muzaffar, and commentary (tafseer) from the renowned
commentator, Abu Muhammad Jafar.
Sufism, his spiritual instructor was Shaikh Abu'l-Khair Hammad. From him, he received
his basic training, and with his help he set out on the spiritual journey. Abu
Shuja' was also a disciple of Shaikh Hammad, once he said: "Shaikh Abdul
Qadir was in the company of Shaikh Hammad, so he came and sat in front of him,
observing the best of good manners, until he stood up and took his leave. I heard
Shaikh Hammad say, as soon as Shaikh Abdul Qadir had left: 'This non-Arab has
a foot that will be raised, when the proper time comes, and placed upon the necks
of the saints of that time. He will surely be commanded to say: This foot of mine
is upon the neck of every saint of Allah. He will surely say it, and the necks
of all the saints of his age will surely be bent at his disposal.'" Hazrat
Junayd Baghdadi (died AD 910), who died about 167 years before the birth of Shaikh
Abdul Qadir Jilani, predicted about him on one occasion, when he was performing
meditation & during that he said: "His foot will be over all Saints'
necks." After finishing meditation, his disciples asked him about his words,
he replied: "One Sufi would be born in the future, who would be greater than
all saints." Thus, Shaikh Hammad proved the words of Hazrat Junayd as right.
The historians says that, later Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani also repeated the same
words on many occasion by himself.

After completion of education, Hazrat Abdul Qadir
Jilani abandoned the city of Baghdad, and spent twenty-five years as a wanderer
in the desert regions of Iraq as a recluse. He was over fifty years old by
the time he returned to Baghdad, in AH 521 (AD 1127), and began to preach in public.
His hearers were profoundly affected by the style and content of his lectures,
and his reputation grew and spread through all sections of society. Not only Muslims,
but also Jews and Christians, not only caliphs and viziers but also farmers, merchants
and traders allegedly altered their lives in response to Abdul Qadir's perorations.
He moved into the school belonging to his old teacher al-Mukharrimii, there he
engaged himself in teaching. Soon he became popular with his pupils. In the morning
he taught hadith and tafseer, and in the afternoon held discourse on mysticism
and the virtues of the Qur'an. The number of students increased so much that the
seminary could no more contain them. He, therefore, decided to extend the premises
of the seminary. The students and the people willingly came forward with their
wholehearted contributions. The campus buildings were ready in AH 528 and thereafter
it came to be known as Madarsai-e-Qadriya.
Abdul Qadir Jilani was a Non-Arab (ajami), so he wasn't fluent in Arabic and was
having some difficulties because of it. Once The Prophet Muhammad came to him
in a dream, before the time of the midday prayer (Zuhr), and he said to him: "O
my dear son, why do you not speak out?" He replied: "O dear father,
I am a Non-Arab man. How can I speak fluently in the classical Arabic language
of Baghdad?" Holy Prophet said: "Just open your mouth!" He opened
his mouth, and The Holy Prophet put his saliva seven times in his mouth. A few
moments later, Hazrat Ali ibn Abi Talib also came & did the same to him six
times. And from that time, Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani spoke classical Arabic language
with fluency, his memory increased and he felt some great positive spiritual changes
some one asked Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani about Mansur Al-Hallaj, he replied: "His
claim extended too far, so the scissors of the Sacred Law (Shari'a) were empowered
to clip it."
busied himself for forty years in the service of the Islam from AH 521 to 561.
During this period hundreds embraced Islam because of him and organized several
teams to go abroad for the purpose. He arrived in Indian sub-continent in AD 1128,
and stayed at Multan (Pakistan). He died in AH 561 (AD 1166) at the age of 91
years, and was buried in Baghdad.
