Glad tidings of his birth

Glad tidings of his birth

In Tabaqat Ul Kubra, Bahjat Ul Asrar, Qalaaid Ul Jawahir, Nafahatul Uns, Jame’ Karamaat Ul Auliya, Nuzhatul Khatir Al Fatir and Akhbaar Ul Akhyaar, the birth of Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him) is mentioned in the following manner:

The night preceding the birth of Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him), his father Hadhrat Abu Saleh Syed Moosa Jangidost (May Allah shower His mercy on him) saw in a dream that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), along with the Companions, the Imams and the Elite among the saints, graced his house.  He gave glad tidings to him in the following words:

Translation: O Abu Saleh!  Allah Most High has granted you such a son who is close to me.  He is my beloved and the beloved of Almighty Allah and very soon, his glory among the saints will be like my glory among the Prophets.

Apart from the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), Hadhrat Abu Saleh Moosa Jangidost (May Allah shower His mercy on him) dreamt that all other Prophets gave him glad tidings that all the saints will be followers of his son and his foot will be on their neck.

The night when Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him) was born, that night every lady who delivered in Jilan was granted a boy and each of them grew up to be a saint.

His name:  ‘Abdul Qadir (May Allah be well pleased with him).

His Kuniyah:  Abu Muhammad

His honorifics:  Muhiyuddin, Mahboob Subhani, Ghouth Uth Thaqlain, Ghouth Ul A’adham and many others.

He was born on 29th Sha’abaan 470 Hijri in a settlement called Jilan, which is in Iraq near Baghdad.  He passed away on 17/9 of Rab’ee Ul Aakhir in 561 Hijri.  However, in the subcontinent, his passing away on 11th is very famous.  (Ma Thabata Bis Sunnah)

He is a descendant of Hadhrat Imam Hasan (May Allah be well pleased with him) through his father and a descendant of Imam Hussain (May Allah be well pleased with him) through his mother.  His whole family is one of saints.  His paternal and maternal grandfathers, his father, his mother, his paternal aunt, his brother and all his sons are great saints with great stations and many miracles expressed at their hands.
