Life Events -Of Hazrat Ghaus e A'zam Shaiekh Saiyyid Abdul Qaadir Jeelaani [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] continued...excerpt speech by Allaamah Kaukab Noorani Okarvi Childhood...Events

When Hazrat Ghaus al-A’zam [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] reached the age of physical maturity, about sixteen or seventeen, then his teacher said, ‘Allaah Kareem has blessed you abundantly and much potential lies within you, so you should leave our little city, which has no facilities for higher learning and go to a bigger city that has a University for higher education.’ Hazrat Ghaus al-A’zam [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] conferred with his mother, who agreed with his teacher and said, ‘Allaah Kareem... has created you for a great task. The circles you will move in and the field of Divine Learning [Marifat] requires that you be highly educated in the religion.’

Hazrat Ghaus al-A’zam [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] blessed mother asked him to undertake the journey to Baghdad but he should not lie under any circumstances. She sewed forty gold dinars in the seam of his coat and set him on his way. On the way highway robbers laid siege to the traveling party.

The robbers mercilessly attacked the caravan. Hazrat Ghaus al-A’zam [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] stood on one side and watched the pillage. A robber passed by Hazrat Ghaus al-A’zam [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] and asked if he has anything of value. Hazrat said he has forty dinars on him. The robber taught he was joking since he cut a lonely figure standing with no baggage. He left and when the robbers gathered in front of their leader, he inquired if they had robbed all the travelers. They answered in the affirmative. The robber who had passed by Hazrat Ghaus al-A’zam [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] said that one boy of eighteen to twenty of age had said he has forty dinars on him but he thinks he is joking. The leader asked loudly, ‘who, is this boy who has the nerve to joke with us. Bring him to me immediately.’ Hazrat was brought to him and on seeing Hazrat’s beautiful face his life was transformed.’ The faces of the Beloved’s Of Allaah Kareem possess blessing, spirituality and light as an indication of their sublime status and attachment to enlightened ones. Hazrat Ghaus al-A’zam [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] was a member of the family of the Holy Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam],a born Walee and leader of all Auliyaa. Wilaayat has a class about it. The leader of the robbers had seen many people but this was a unique face possessing, innocence, beauty, spirituality and light. His face indicated that he was a flower from an exceptional garden. The leader of the robbers marveled at the radiance of Hazrat Ghaus al-A’zam [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh]’s face and asked him if he had anything on him. Hazrat replied that he had forty dinar on him that was sewn into his coat by his mother. The robber was amazed at his honesty. On enquiry Hazrat Ghaus al-A’zam [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] told him that his name was Abdul al-Qaadir, he was a direct descendant of Imaam Hasan and Imaam Husaien [Radiyal Laah Anhum] traveling to Baghdad to further his studies. The leader of the robbers said,
O ‘Abdul al-Qaadir if you told me you have nothing on you I would never have suspected you are carrying wealth and it would have helped you in a strange land. Hazrat Ghaus al-A’zam [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] replied, ‘I could have hidden it from you, but in the process I would have to lie. I left home and promised my mother I would never lie. I could give my life but I cannot break my promise to my mother.’ These words of truth uttered by the truthful one had an effect on the heart of the robber. The words of the Friends Of Allaah Kareem have great effect on the listener. The robber began crying and said, ‘This young man fears displeasing his mother whereas I have transgressed the Laws of Allaah[Ta’aalaa] and thereby earned the displeasure of the Holy Prophet Muhammad [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam]’. The robber repented and sought forgiveness for his sins. He asked Hazrat Ghaus al-A’zam [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] to raise his hands and make Dua for him with that blessed tongue that has so much of effect in it. Hazrat Ghaus al-A’zam [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] replied, ‘I will pray for you on condition that you return all the goods you plundered from our caravan to their owners’. The robber returned everything, including the forty dinars. When Hazrat Ghaus al-A’zam [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] began his supplication [dua] the other robbers requested that they also be included in the supplication. In the course of the dua the fate of the robbers changed to the extent that Allaah Kareem granted them Wilaayat.

As a result of Hazrat Ghaus al-A’zam [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] practicing truthfulness 40-70 thieves repented, became true Muslim, were admitted in the ranks of the righteous [Saliheen] and the plundered goods were also returned....Sub Haan Allaah!!!
