Hazrat Shaiekh Abdul Qaadir Jeelaani [Radiyal Laahu 'Anhu]- Worship-Translation Speech -Okarvi


hazrat shaiekh abdul qaadir jeelaani  speech translation allama kokab noorani okarvi





The sinful are preserved in this world from the punishment of Allaah Kareem , due to the benevolence  [Sadaqaa] of the Intimates of Allaah Kareem (Auliyaa). It is the sadaqa of those beloveds of Allaah Kareem that get up at night and cry to Allaah Kareem , spending nights in worshipful service to Allaah Kareem . Our great Imaam, Imaam Abuu Haneefaa [Radiyal Laahu Anhu], used to read his Fajr salaah with the ablution performed for the previous Eeshaa salaah, for forty years. Ghaus al-Aa’zam [Radiyal Laahu Anhu]also used to read his Fajr salaah with the ablution performed for the previous Eeshaa salaah for forty years. They spent their entire nights in worship [ibaadaat]. Hazrat Ghaus al-Aa’zam t says, ‘I spent 15 years, reciting the entire Qur’aan, between Fajr and Eesha standing on one foot every night.’ He says, ‘after performing Eeshaa Salaah, I used to retire to my room [hujra] and I had a piece of wood fixed to the wall, which I used to grasp. I would then raise my left foot and stand on my right foot and begin my recitation. I would start from Soorah Fatihaah and would only put my left foot down, when I completed Soorah Naas.’ This was not performed a few nights or a few weeks, but, every night, for fifteen years and during the daytime he used to fast. Even though he was born a ‘friend of Allaah Kareem’ [wali] he strove. On this path, [tasawwuf], worship [ibaadaat], striving [Riyaazaat] and struggle has to be performed, for without this, nothing can be accomplished. My elders and friends, these Auliyaa that wake up at night and strive, it is due to their blessings that sinners like us, are saved from the punishment of Allaah Almighty...excerpt  from Lecture translation of Maulana  Muhammad Shafee Okarvi [Rahmatul Laahi Alaieh] by
