    Extract from the Introduction :

    This mystical Qasidah (ode) was uttered by the sacred lips of Hadrat Ghawth al-A'zam Sayyiduna Shaykh 'Abd al-Qadir Jilani, may Allah sanctify his secret, in a deep state of Spiritual Rapture (wajd). It is a very beloved wird (litany) of our Qadiriyyah Silsilah by which murids derive immense blessings and favours both spiritually and physically. Each verse of this ode is a source of blessing and spiritual upliftment and they are extensively read daily by numerous disciples.

    There are many views about the number of verses of this Qasidah and the great Mujaddid and Qutb, A'la-Hadrat Imam Ahmad Rida Khan al-Qadiri, may Allah be pleased with him, states that there are in all 28 verses. Since these verses were uttered in a state of hal (spiritual state) by a beloved and most highly elevated confidant of Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, Ghawth al-A'zam Qutb al-Alam Sayyiduna Shaykh 'Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani, may Allah sanctify his secret, therefore, its recitation has an awesome spiritual impact on the heart and soul. It is recommended to be recited daily for the fulfilment of one's desires.
