Brothers in Deen! With utmost respect and love, let’s send blessings and peace
to the court of our master, the honourable king of Madina (ﷺ)
Recite with me in a loud voice:
اللهم صل عل ىسيدنا و مولانا محمد و بارك و سلم و صلوا عليه صلوة

و سلام عليك يارسول الله

Respected brothers! I have been requested in this blessed gathering to mention
some of the miracles (Karaamaat) of our master the great Gauth Shaikh Abdul
Qadir Muhiyuddeen Jeelani Hasani Husaini (رضي الله تعالى عنه)
Before I continue, I feel it is appropriate to share with you a Manqabat in praise
of Gauth-e-Paak written by Hazrat Maulana Jameelur Rahman Saheb Rizvi
Barelvee  (عليه الرحمه):
Urdu Manqabat
Brothers in Islam! Upon this earth, many saints have come and will continue to
arrive until the world exists. However, amongst this group of saints, Sarkar-e
Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) has a unique status in the fields of meditation
(Kashf), miracles (Karamat), struggles (Mujahadaat) and capabilities
(Tasarrufaat). This is why many classical scholars have written a number of
books regarding his superiority, rank, competences and miracles which you will
not possibly find for any other saint. Undoubtedly he is the greatest Gauth
without any disagreement and the entire Ummah is united over this fact.
We have recognized the perfection of his knowledge and the greatness of his
sainthood. The opposing groups also accepting him as Gauth-e-Azam.
SubhanAllah SubhanAllah.
Brothers in Islam! Verily the status of Sarkar Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) and
his superiority are both unique of his time and he was unmatched in knowledge

and action. He was a shining beacon of Islamic law (Shariat) and the spiritual
path (Tareeqat) and combined these oceans of knowledge. This is why my
master, the great honourable, the immensely blessed, reviver of the religion, the
imam of the Ahlu-Sunnah As-shah Imam Ahmad Raza of Barelvi writes (عليه
الرحمه):
Urdu Verses

Brothers in Islam! Allah (ﷻ) blessed Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) with
answered prayers (Mustajabu-da’waat), whatever emanated from his blessed
tongue would surely become a reality by the will of Allah (ﷻ) and amongst the
group of the saints, no one else possessed the same greatness and dignity as
Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه). He is the king and master of all the
saints. This is the reason why all the saints consider it an honour to embrace the
feet of Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) with their eyes. My master
Alahazrat (عليه الرحمه) beautifully writes:

SubhanAllah SubhanAllah!!
Brothers in Islam! It is a reality that Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) was
unique in his sainthood. The world is incapable to truly describe his excellence,
perfection and esteem rank. The vast number of miracles that were performed
by Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) cannot be matched in quantity by any
other saint and no matches can be found within the books of history.
I wish to share with you a few miracles and abilities of Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam
(رضي الله تعالى عنه) but before I proceed, please can everyone send peace and
blessings with utmost love and reverence in the court of our beloved messenger
(ﷺ):
اللهم صل عل ىسيدنا و مولانا محمد و بارك و سلم و صلوا عليه صلوة

و سلام عليك يارسول الله

1. Once during an evening, Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) was
travelling to some place wearing an expensive robe. The robe caught the
eye of a thief who made an intention in his heart to steal it no matter

what. With this in mind, he began to trail Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله
تعالى عنه). As they reached the middle of the desert, the thief was satisfied
that nobody would come to intervene in such a remote location. He swiftly
caught up to Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) and grabbed his arm.
As he tried to pull the garment, Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه)
raised his hands for supplication and he uttered the following heart
wrenching words: “O my Lord, this servant of yours has clung onto the
arm of your Abdul Qadir, therefore do not release his hand from my
protection until the day of judgement!” This prayer transformed the heart
of the thief who surrendered at the feet of Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله
تعالى عنه) and repented. Through the saintly vision of Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam
(رضي الله تعالى عنه), this thief was blessed with sainthood (wilayat) within a
few days!
SubhanAllah SubhanAllah! What greatness lies in the vision of Huzoor Gauth-e-
Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) through which a thief became a saint! A poet beautifully
states:
Urdu Verses
2. Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) was once delivering a speech in a
gathering when it suddenly began to rain. The public began to disperse as
a result. On witnessing this, Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) gazed
towards the sky and said, “O my Lord! I am gathering the people for your
remembrance and You are dispersing them!” As soon as he uttered this,
the rain immediately stopped within the grounds where he was lecturing,
but it continued to rain outside!
Mowlana Rumi (عليه الرحمه) writes:
Urdu Verses
The status belonging to the pious servants of Allah (ﷻ) is such that whatever
emanates from their blessed tongues surely becomes a reality by the will of
Allah (ﷻ). This is why Allah (ﷻ) fulfilled whatever was desired by Huzoor Guthe
Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه).
What beautiful poetry has been written by a pious individual:
Urdu Verses
3. People began to dispute over the sighting of the moon which marked the
start of Ramadan. Some alleged that the moon had been sighted whilst
others disagreed. The mother of Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه)
proclaimed that since the day my son has been born, he does not drink
from my milk during the days of Ramadan and because he has not drank
today, I can certainly say that the moon has undoubtedly been sighted.

After further investigation, it was confirmed that the moon had actually
been sighted!
What beautiful poetry has been written by Jameel Qadri Bareilwy (عليه الرحمه):
Urdu Verses
Respected people! A group of individuals once asked Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam
(رضي الله تعالى عنه), “When did you come to know you were a saint?” He answered,
“When i used to attend the Madrasah at the age of ten, a sound from the unseen
could be heard by everyone proclaiming ‘Ifsahoo li wali-yillah’ meaning make
space for the saint of Allah!”
SubhanAllah! What great rank was awarded to Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله
تعالى عنه) and if this is his status, then who can comprehend the status of the
greatest of messengers (ﷺ)! Please pray loudly:
اللهم صل عل ىسيدنا و مولانا محمد و بارك و سلم و صلوا عليه صلوة

و سلام عليك يارسول الله

4. Respected People! The lake of Dajla once broke its banks and flooded the
surrounding areas. When people feared for their lives and possessions,
they came rushing to the court of Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه)
for assistance. Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) took his walking
stick and proceeded towards the lake. He reached the actual bank of lake
and pitched his stick into the water commanding, “stop at this point”. The
water immediately began to recede and stopped at the point where he
had placed his walking stick.
SubhanAllah SubhanAllah! Such a remarkable saint whose power also rules over
the lakes by the gift of Allah (ﷻ)! How can we, who fail to control a burst pipe in
our homes be equal to this magnificent individual. May Allah guide us.
Respected people! Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) once said, “If the
Shariat did not place any restriction upon my tongue, then I would inform you of
what you eat inside your homes and what your store. All of you appear to me
like this glass bottle, I can see your external condition as well as your internal
state.
Brothers in Islam! Ponder over this, if this is the vast extent of knowledge
possessed by Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه), then what do you think
would be the limit of the knowledge possessed by the king of Madina (ﷺ)!
My beloved brothers! We need to understand that such ranks are granted to the
saints through the Waseela of practicing the Sunnah of the messenger (ﷺ).

Sarkar-e-Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) is the king of all saints. He can even see
the divine tablet (Lawh-e-Mahfooz) with the power awarded to him by Allah (ﷻ).
Therefore, Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) states in one place, “My eyes
can see the divine tablet”. SubhanAllah! Allah has bestowed such excellence in
the eyes of his close servants; they can read what is written on the divine tablet
whilst sat upon this earth. Also through the power awarded to them by Allah
(ﷻ), they are blessed with the knowledge concerning an individual’s destiny.
Respected people! Once again please send peace and blessings in the court of
the messenger (ﷺ) before I share another miracle of Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam
(رضي الله تعالى عنه) and conclude my speech:

اللهم صل عل ىسيدنا و مولانا محمد و بارك و سلم و صلوا عليه صلوة

و سلام عليك يارسول الله

5. It has been recorded that the governor of Baghdad attended the in the
court of Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) to offer his greetings.
"Huzoor! Today I wish to see a miracle from you." Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam
(رضي الله تعالى عنه) replied, "Tell me, what miracle would you like to witness?"
the governor requested, "I feel like eating an apple, even though it’s not
its season". Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) lifted his arm in the air
and two apples miraculously appeared in his blessed hand. He gifted one
apple to the governor and kept the other to himself. He then sliced his
apple which was glowing white and extremely sweet. When the governor
cut his, it was rotten and had a foul smell. The governor was left
astounded and Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) explained, "Both
apples were the same, but once the oppressor touched it, it became
rotten." The governor became embarrassed of his actions and Huzoor
Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) used this miracle as a means to guide him
and protect him from causing further oppression.
Brothers in Islam! How many miracles of Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله
تعالى عنه) shall I share with you?! There are numerous examples of his
abilities and command over plants, trees and animals. Huzoor Gauth-e-
Azam
(رضي الله تعالى عنه) himself states in Qaseedah Gauthiyyah: "All towns and
cities belonging to Allah (ﷻ) are under my authority and obey my
command. Through the grace of Allah, my command over all these things
existed before I began the path of self-purification, meaning i was born a
saint!
People! Huzoor Gauth-e-Azam (رضي الله تعالى عنه) was born a saint. Even

though he possessed such great power and ability, he exhausted his life in
encouraging people to learn religious knowledge and adhere to the rulings
of Shariah. He would stress on reciting Salaah punctually at its prescribed
times. Salaah is the most important obligation and best amongst all acts
of worship. He sacrificed himself for the propagation of religion. He not
only counselled the poor, but also admonished the wealthy and the rulers
to behave justly and follow the rulings of Shariah

Miracles of Gauth-e-Azam (Rahmatullahi Ta’ala Alayh) – PART 7

 

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الصلوۃ والسلام علیک یا سیدی یارسول اللہ

 

Once Shyaykh Abu Sa’eed Abdullah bin Ahmad Baghdadi (RadiAllahu Ta’ala Anh) came to Ghauth E Azam Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani Alayhi Rahma and complained about his sixteen-year old daughter Fathima, who had gone onto the roof of the house and suddenly disappeared from there. Gauth-e-Azam (Rehmatullahi Ta’ala Alayh) told him to go to a certain jungle at night. On entering this jungle he would see many sand heaps. He should sit on the fifth sand heap that he passed. He should draw a circle around him saying ‘Bismillah’ and he should then say ‘Abdul Qadir’. Towards the third portion of the night, he would find an army of Jinns passing by. They will look really frightening and fierce, but he should not fear. He should remain seated and wait. Exactly at the time of the first light, the most powerful King of the Jinns would pass that way and he would personally come to him and ask his problem. On the King’s request, he should explain to him his situation and then tell him that Gauth-e-Azam (Rehmatullahi Ta’ala Alayh) has sent him.

Shaykh Abu Sa’eed Baghdadi (RadiAllahu Ta’ala Anh) states, “I did as Gauth-e-Azam (Rehmatullahi Ta’ala Alayh) said. After some time, I saw armies of Jinns in frightening forms passing by. They were very upset with me sitting in their path, but they passed without saying a word, as they did not have the courage to enter the circle. In the morning, the King passed and asked my request. When I explained my problem to him and told him that Gauth-e-Azam (Rehmatullahi Ta’ala Alayh) had sent me, he got off his horse and stood with respect listening to me. He then sent the Jinns to summon back the Jinn who had captured my daughter. My daughter was brought back and the King ordered the mischievous Jinn to be beheaded.” When Shaykh Abu Sa’eed Baghdadi (RadiAllahu Ta’ala Anh) asked the King about his respect for Huzoor Ghaus-e-Azam (RadiAllahu Ta’ala Anh), the King replied, “By Allah, when Gauth-e-Azam (Rehmatullahi Ta’ala Alayh) looks at us, all the Jinns begin to tremble.”

SUBHANALLAH…
