Declaration of his sainthood in infancy
Signs of sainthood were apparent right from his infancy. He was born on 29th Sha’abaan and from the 1st of Ramadhan he would not eat or drink from Sehri until Iftaar. His mother says: My son ‘Abdul Qadir never let me suckle him during the whole day in Ramadhan.
Once because the sky was overcast with clouds, people couldn’t see the moon. When people asked, they were told that the baby had not taken any milk that day. Later on, it became clear that Ramadhan had started that very day. Thus, it became very well known in the city:
Translation: At that time, it became very well known in the city that in the house of Syeds, a son has been born who doesn’t drink any milk during the day in Ramadhan and in fact, fasts in it.

Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him) had only been born that Almighty Allah benefited people through him. He is also expressing his servitude before Almighty Allah and is presenting the people as well. In effect, this was a declaration that Almighty Allah had created him only to guide the Ummah and that he has been made a leader for the whole world. His status is such that right in the cradle, people observe his fasts and fast. They are perfecting their worship looking at his worship. What would have been the state when Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him) actually sat on the pulpit to guide one and all?
