Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani

Hazrat Abu Muhammad Mohiuddin Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani was a Sufi sheikh and the founder of the Sufi order Qaderi, Hazrat Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (also spelled Jilani, Gilani, Gillani, Al-Gilani) was a Sufi Sheikh and the founder of the Qadiri Sufi order (Silsila).

You were born in Ramadan in 470 AH (1077-78 AD) in the Persian province of Jilan (Iran), south of the Caspian Sea. His contribution to Sufism and Sharia law was so enormous that he became the spiritual center of his time, al-Ghawth al-Azam.

One of your titles is "al-Hasani wal Hussaini" because you have been blessed with a direct lineage with the Holy Prophet through your father Sheikh Abu Saleh Moosa, who was a direct descendant of Imam Hassan.

You were a very devout and humble person, as well as a master of Jihad tactics and that is why they gave him the title of "Jangi Dost".

Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani was also blessed with direct lineage to the Holy Prophet through your mother Sayyida Bibi Ummul Khair Fatima who was a direct descendant of Imam Hussein. She was also a very pious person. The circumstances surrounding the blessed marriage of Hazrat Abu Saleh Moosa and Hazrat Bibi Ummul Khair were quite miraculous to say the least.

Predictions of your Birth
Sheikh-ul-Mashaikh, Hazrat Junaid Al-Baghdadi. You lived two hundred years before Sheik Abdul Qadir Jilani and you predicted his arrival. When Sheikh Junaid al-Baghdadi once found yourself in a state of spiritual ecstasy, you said: his foot is on my shoulders

After coming out of this spiritual condition, your disciples asked you about these words. You said, "I was told that a great saint would be born at the end of the fifth century. His name will be Abdul Qadir Jilani and his title will be Muhiyuddin. He will be born in Jilan and stayed in Baghdad. One day, under the command of Allah, he will say, "My foot will be shoulders of all Awliya Allah." While I was in my spiritual state, I saw his excellence and these words were spoken by me without my control.

Imam Hassan Askari Sheikh Abu Muhammad said that Imam Hassan Askari gave his Jubba (Cape) to Sayyiduna Imam Ma'roof Karki and asked him to hand it over to Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani. Sheikh Imam Ma'roof Karki passed this cape to Junaid al-Baghdadi. who in turn passed it to Sheikh Danoori. From there he was transferred to reach Sheik Abdul Qadir Jilani in 497 A.H. (Makhzanul Qaaderiah)

Sheikh Abu Bakr ibn Thousawar lived before the time of al-Ghawar al-'Utam and was one of the prominent sheikhs of Baghdad. Once during his meeting, he said, "There are seven Iraqi high schools:

  • Sheikh Ma’roof Karki (ra)
  • Sheikh Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal (ra)
  • Sheikh Bishr Haafi (ra)
  • Sheikh Mansoor bin Amaar (ra)
  • Sayyiduna Junaid al-Baghdadi (ra)
  • Sheikh Sahl bin Abdullah Tastari (ra)
  • Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (ra)

When Sayyidi Abu Muhammad, who was a mureed of Sheikh Abu Bakr asked,  We have heard and know six of these names, but the seventh, we have not heard of. O Sheikh! Who is Abdul Qadir Jilani?” Sheikh Abu Bakr replied by saying: “Abdul Qadir will be born towards the end of the fifth century Hijri and he will reside in Baghdad.” (Bahjatul Asraar)


According to authentic reports, Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani you were born in a place called Cousin, located in Jilan (Persia). According to Imam Yaaqoot, Hamwi Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani was born in a place called Bashteer.

Most historians agree that Neef and Bashteer were different names for the same place. Since you were was born in Jilan, Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani has been known as al-Jilani. Regarding his birth, he personally states the following in his "Qasida-e-Ghausia": "I am Al Jilani, my name is Muhiyuddin and my banners float on the tops of the mountains."

As GOD Saying:

Reference of Resala Ghosal-Azam:
Translation: God said, OH Ghous, Ghous pak replied to GOD, my lord I’m here then GOD said, say that I’m here HO GOD Ghous,
I’m more Karim than Akram; I’m more Arham than Rahim (I’m merciful of all merciful, I’m kind hearted of all)

As Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani Saying……

Translation: HO beloved come through the gate of my heart without veil cause there is nothing in my house except your sweet pain…………..

Hazrat 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 in him.
Once someone asked Sheikh 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."
He 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 passed away in AH 561 (AD 1166) at the age of 91 years, and was buried in Baghdad.

Translation: World is the pub of Qalandar for all lovers of GOD, and I go to that pub like lovers, devotee of GOD, and like Qalandar.

My Foot is on the Neck of All Walis
Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani uttered these words from the pulpit in Baghdad. All awliya, present and non-present, bowed their heads in submission. Unlike shatahat of some awliya, these words of Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani were uttered in a state of sobreity, sahw. With the exception of Sahaba and the Imams of Ahle Bait, Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani's foot is on the neck of all awliya.

As someone said……

Ghausul Azam is amongst the saints As Muhammad Mustafa (SW) is amongst the messengers (of God)

As Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani saying……

” I am al-Jili and Muhiyiddin is my name
My banners fly on the mountain tops
I am Hasani and my station is the “secret chamber”
My feet are upon the necks of the men
Abd al Qadir is my well known name
My Grandfather (PBUH) is the source of perfection.”

As Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani saying……

You said about your poetry book that people would read my poetry till judgment day like me; I have taught people in form of poetry, people can easily follow the path which I suggested them
