Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) session with Hazrat Khizhar (عَلَیْہِ الصَّلَاۃُ وَالسَّلَام)

Abdul Qadir Jilani (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) say’s when he started his divine trainings in the wildernesses of Baghdad; he met an individual who was very attractive and had a Religious and sparkling face. The person inquired if he would like to stopover with him. Abdul Qadir Jilani (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) said that he would love to. The person then stated that this could only be done if you promise to be obedient to my commands and never to question my sayings or actions. Abdul Qadir Jilani (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) instantly agreed upon this. The person then ordered Abdul Qadir Jilani to sit at a recommended place and not to move till he returned back. The person left and returned approximately after one year and found Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) still seated at the prescribed place. He spent a few moments with Abdul Qadir Jilani (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) and then asked him to sit and wait for him once more. This person left and returned again after one year. He once again spent some time with the Great Saint and then left again giving him the same orders as he had done twice. He then came back after a year and along with him brought some milk and (bread). At last he proclaimed “I am Hazrat Khizhar (عَلَیْہِ الصَّلَاۃُ وَالسَّلَام) and I have been asked to eat this food with you and so they ate.

Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam’s foot is on the shoulders of all the Saints

Once Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) was giving a speech, he went into a spiritual stage and proclaimed; “My foot’s on all the Auliyaah’s Shoulders”. There were many Saint’s present when he stated these precise words and instantly all of them bowed their necks. Sheikh Ali-bin-Haaiti (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) was also present in the convention who, immediately rushed toward Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) and really placed Huzoor’s foot on his neck. Hazrat Sayyidi Majid (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) say’s “When Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) uttered these phrases, every Saint (Wali) on planet lowered their necks.”

Hazrat Makaarem (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) say’s; “The day Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) made this speech, each and every Saint (Wali) distinguished that the “flag” of King-ship was presented before Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ). On this particular day, all Saints (Wali) globally bowed their necks on his orders.”

Hazrat Sayyedi Sheikh Khalifa-tul Akbar (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) say’s “I saw the holy prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) in my dream and I inquired about the speech of Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) my foot’s on all the Auliyaah’s shoulders.”

He states; they holy Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) replied; “Abdul Qadir Jilani (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) has pronounced the truth and nothing but the truth and why he should not say so, when his is a true Qutub and I am his Caretaker.”

Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) is also the writer of numerous volumes on an immense quantity of topics. His volumes overflow with oceans of Knowledge, Intelligence and spirituality. The most renowned volumes amongst all others are; Ghuneyah-tut Taliben and Futtuhul-Ghaeeb. Exceptionally many of his speeches were noted in script by many prodigious scholars that attended his gatherings. Many of these texts are still well-preserved in their actual form upon this day in different places of the world.

Transformation of people began by providing speeches and educating them in the Madrassa which belonged to Sayyedi Sheikh Abu-Saeed-Makhzomi (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ). The people of Baghdad and adjoining cities now arose to gather to the speeches of Huzoor-e-Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) in huge numbers and the Madrassa became very small for the gatherings. A time came when there was not enough place inside the Madrassa, people were forced to assemble out on the pavements and street to attend to his speeches and guidance. Later a few houses surrounding the madrassa were bought and merged to make the madrassa area big but to all surprises even this proved too small. The sitting place (Mimbar) of Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) was then shifted in a great open area where approximately more than 70 thousand people could easily attend in each of his speeches. It was one of his miracles that even the person sitting last in the gathering could easily and clearly understand and hear him just as the person who was sitting in front of him. Please note; IN those days the invention of loudspeaker was still not made and His Excellency (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) would stroke the heart of each and every person attending the speech even if they were huge in numbers. His speeches turned out to be so eminent that in a very small spell, it fascinated people hearts from all parts of the world, hence making Baghdad the heart of education and spiritualism once again for ever. He would deliver speeches usually on Friday, Wednesday and Sunday and the exercise continued for about more than 40 years. May Almighty Alah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) always shower more and more spiritual blessings upon him (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ)? Ameen!

Advice of Ghous-e-Azam’s Mother ( رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُمَا )

Abdul Qadir Jilani (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) was still studying in a Madrassa located in Baghdad shareef when his dearest father and grandfather sayedi Abu Saalaeh (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) and Hazrat Abdullah Soom’ee (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) migrated from this worldly life to the better Hereafter. After their demise the burden of his education fell on the holy shoulders of his sanctified mother (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہَا). With endurance, truthfulness and loyalty, she performed the duty which was appointed to her. When Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) was about 18 years old he wished for an approval to journey to Baghdad, so he may complete his education and strive for more & more divine knowledge. His loving mother (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہَا) permitted him without a 2nd thought agreed to this self-sacrificing appeal.

Sayyeda Um-mul Khair Fatima (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہَا) in here old age said: Good-bye to her son Abdul Qadir Jilani (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ). It was such a stage in her life, when parents generally hang on to their children for ethical and economical backing but this religious and clean servant of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) desired just the liking of both Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) and his dearest prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ). Although she was very fond of Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) but she did not let her emotional spirits come afore the liking of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ). She desired her son to become a man of true knowledge and wise wisdom.

Particularly in that time, people travelled a lot more over on foot by the means of horses & camels passing between thick forests and jungles. There was a real threat of voyagers being mugged and executed. Significant to all the circumstances she still braced his call and greeted well wishes by kissing his forehead. She said, “Dear Abdul Qadir I have grown very old and I can assume that will never ever see you again but my prayers and blessings will always be guiding you. May Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) award you with victory in your journey of achieving knowledge?” His loving mother advised him with a Pearl of wisdom, “I am stitching 40 dinar’s in your coat, for your expedition and Abdul Qadir my darling child Knot my advice and assume this as a key to a successful life. At all times say the truth! Do not even think of speaking lies”.

Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) replied “My beloved mother, I give you my word that I will permanently deed on your guidance”. Sayyeda Fatima (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہَا) then hugged the star of her eyes with affection and motherly tenderness for the last time and departed him with these praising words “May Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) guide you he who is your Defender and Helper”.

The expedition of Baghdad started

After saying good-bye to his loving mother, Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) merged into a convoy which was on its way to Baghdad shareef. In the early days travelers usually journeyed in figures for safety reasons. The convoy of Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) arrived in the city of Hamdaan without any occurrence. They travelled further which brought them into a thick jungle where they were assaulted by 60 robbers. The commander in chief of the gang of thieves was the most wanted outlaw named Ahmad Badawi. The travelers did not have the sources to shield themselves from the robbers and were strained to submit their things and treasures to them. After robbing the travelers, the thief’s collected all the wealth and started to divide it among themselves. While all this was accruing Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) was positioned very steadily among the travelers. He was not noticed, assuming him a young boy, none of the thief’s moved towards him. At last one of the thieves decided to question him; Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) answered that he had in his possession 40 dinar’s. On hearing this, thieves who had grouped began to joke about him but listening to the conversation; their chief asked them to bring the child to him. When the Boundless Saint was brought formerly the chief inquired, whether he had any money in his custody and the Saint replied firmly “I have 40 dinars in my possession when the chief heard this, he demanded for the 40 dinars. Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) revealed where the dinars were concealed. On tearing open the coat they were actually 40 dinars sewed beneath the arm of the coat. On witnessing this, all the thieves were astonished. The chief proclaimed: “Sacred young man, we did not know that you had money and after knowing that we are thieves why didn’t you lie to save your money.”

Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) stated: When I had left home for this voyage, I had made a promise to my virtuous mother that I would never ever be untruthful. How could I break a promise which I made to my mother only for saving 40 dinars?

After listening to the complete incident Ahmed Badawi (the leader of the gang) felt shameful and with tears sheading from his eyes said: Sacred young man, You were extremely loyal towards the promise you made with your mother Disgrace on me for an age I have been very disloyal towards my promises which I made with my Creator Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ).

After uttering these verses, the outlaw cried extremely and fell to the holy feet of Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) and asked for forgiveness true heartedly from his sins. When his assistants witnessed this scene, they too similarly apologized sincerely from all their sins. They refunded all the things of the travelers and guided them out of the forest. It has been stated that the apology of these thieves was so heartfelt, that they were sanctified with the level of Wilaayat, only because of Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ). Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) stated: This was the first apology made by a number of Astray people by my very hands.

The King of Awliyaah and Aqtaab of the entire world

Abdul Qadir Jilani (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) was born on the 1st of Ramadan 470 Hijri which appears to be the most favored date amid the learned scholars of Islam. His birth was a great sacred sign for the Muslim Ummah as it was not only the birth of a child but it was actually the upcoming of the Sultan of all the (Awliyaah’s), which had been forecasted for centuries before his holy birth. There are many marvelous events which encircled the birth of Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ). Hazrat Sayyeduna Shahabudden Suharwaardi (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) mentioned the following miracles (Karamaath) which encircled the holy birth of Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) in his famous book “Manaaqib-e-Ghousia”.

On the night before the birth of Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) his father Sayyedi Abu Saalaeh (رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) saw in his dream the holy, noble Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) who gifted him the happy tidings: ” Abu-Salaeh! Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) has sanctified you with a spiritual son. He is my very beloved and also the beloved of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) and he is the most high-ranked among all the Awliyaah and Aqtaab of the Universe.”

When he was born, he had the birth imprint of the holy footprint of Rasoolullah (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) on his shoulder. This is the evidence of his Wilaayat and Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) gifted delightful greetings to his parents in their dream that their beloved son would be the Sultan-ul-Awliyaah and those who confront him would be deceived (Gumraah). On the night of his birth approximately 11 hundred males were born in Jilaan Shareef and every one of them was a (Wali Allah) friend of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ).

He was born on the night before the holy month of Ramadan. During the whole month of Ramadan amid Sehri and Iftaar time, he not once consumed milk from the time of (sehri) and afore the spell of Iftaar. In common words, he fasted from the very day he was inborn. His sanctified mother mentioned: “He would never cry asking for milk the complete day and would only consume milk at the time of (Iftaar) Subha-nallah! Masha Allah”.

Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) was not alike other offspring’s who would contribute their precious time playing and tricking around. From an affectionate age, he would spend his time in the true memories of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ). By chance if he ever anticipated joining other children, instantly from an invisible source a voice would be heard saying: “Come towards (Me) dear blessed” Initially, on hearing this say, he would become frightened and would rush to his mother and be seated on her lap. As the time passed, he became familiar to this voice, and now instead of rushing to his mother, he would sacrifice the thought of playing and dwelled in the memories of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ).

Hz Ghouse Azam rz 3

 

When he was approximately 4 ½ years old, according to firm narrations, his mother signed up his name into a local Madrassa in “Jilaan” shareef. He thus started his initial learning’s at this very Madrassa and stayed in this Madrassa till the age of ten. Through this certain period of time numerous amazing happenings followed. Each time Huzoor Ghous-e-Azam (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) entered the Madrassa he witnessed spiritual figures marching by side and stating: “Make way for the Friend of Almighty Allah(عَزَّوَجَلَّ)” His son Sayyidi Abdur Razzak(رَحْمَۃُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ) says that once my father was inquired when he principally came to know of his Wilaayat and Huzoor Ghous-e-Pak (رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُ) answered by saying: “When I was about ten years old, I witnessed (Angels) marching alongside on my way to the Madrassa and when we would arrive at the Madrassa I could hear them say: “Make way for the Wali Allah, Make way for the friend of Allah’ It was when this persisted that I distinguished that I had been sanctified with the blessings of Wilaayat.”
