    Innocent questions to learn, which are not excessive are ok and Allah Knows Best. What is it you wish to know? But the workings of the "Honorable Men of the Folk" are not generally for the understanding of the normal layman Muslim.

    Is it important to be critical regarding creedal concepts (before accepting them)?
    If yes, then I have some more questions.

    Shaykh `Abd al-Qadir al-Gilani said in Discourse 9 of his Futuh al-ghayb:

    To awliya' and abdal (Substitute-saints) are disclosed such workings of Allah in the course of kashf and mushahada as overwhelm the reasoning power of man and shatter into pieces all habits and customs. (end quote)

    I'll remind you of the Hadith that relates to the Friends of Allah Most High - May Allah Have Mercy on Their Blessed Souls

    The Holy Messenger of Allah SalAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallim said: ittaqu firasat al-mu'min fa innahu yara bi nurillah "Beware the vision of the believer, for he sees with the light of Allah," then he recited the verse: "Therein lie portents for those who read the signs" (al-mutawassimin) (15:75). Tirmidhi

    Does this satisfy you?

    What is the evidence for this?

    Whether it is an authentic narration or not the Gauth and Qutb have the world at their disposal and can see what other Muslims cannot. They have a heightened sense of realization that you cannot understand. Duties are in accordance to abilities, so Their duty is to administer affairs of the entire earth so they are given what is needed to perform this.

    Is this an authentic statement of Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani Rahmatullah Alayh? Is this the belief of Ahlus Sunnah regarding him?
