Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani رضي الله عنه 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-Ghaus 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. Syedina Ghaus-e-Azam was a great preacher, eminent educationist, a noble scholar and a distinguished doctor of Muslim law. He is known as supreme leader of al Walis. Wali is known as friend of Allah.
