The reason behind the creation of human beings is the worship and servitude of Almighty Allah. The bondsmen of Allah express their powerlessness before Him and worship Him. They try to please Him and are always anxious to gain His approval. The Lord Almighty grants them the reward for this in this world and the hereafter. He grants them high stations and grants them the status of sainthood which is indeed a great station which is granted in lieu of the worship and mortification of the self. There are some lucky people whom Almighty Allah grants acceptance without any worship performed and seats them on the station of sainthood. As it is mentioned in the Holy Quran:
Allah chooses whom He pleases (for exclusive nearness) in His presence, and shows the path to (come) towards Himself to everyone who turns (towards Allah) heartily. Surah Shoora (42:13)
One and the greatest among those people whom Almighty Allah has honored with His grace and has selected them to be among His beloveds without any volition of theirs, is Abu Muhammad Mohiuddin Hadhrat Shaykh ‘Abdul Qadir Jeelani Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him). Almighty Allah has accorded him a special status and has made him the leader and head of all the saints. The effects of this divine acknowledgment were apparent from his infancy itself. When cool breeze blows, it betrays the rain that is to come. In the same way, glad tidings were given before the birth of Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him).
