I love Shaykh 'Abdul Qadir Jilani

Assalamu 'alaykum,

Thanks a lot for your advice, really it means a lot to me.

Actually, right now I am not in tareeqa qadireyya but I like to be.

I like Seedna al-Jeelani so very much and I like to see him again.

I know that (man lam yakun lahu shaykh fa shaykhuhu shaytan).

The problem is that here in UAE we don't have these things. I mean I can't find them..may be they are in bilad Al Sham and Egypt.

In UAE we don't have, so is it possible that my shaykh be Seedy al-Jeelani? Is it possible? And how I can relate to him?

Thanks a lot again and let me hear from you again.


Wa 'alaykum-us-Salam,

Yes, your shaykh can be Shaykh 'Abdul Qadir Jilani, Rady Allahu 'Anhu. Why not?

The way you can relate to him is to do what would make him happy, that is, try to follow the Qu'ran and the Sunnah. You know all these things very well, that we have first to be punctual in our five times daily prayer, serve our parents, maintain good relations with our kith and kin, give in regular charity, and clean our hearts of diseases such as jealousy, malice and hatred.

I hope you have already read the article on Shaykh 'Abdul Qadir Jilani, Rady Allahu 'Anhu (

May Allah bless you on the spiritual path of the Qaadiriyya.

With many salaams and dua,
