A miracle of Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him)
Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam Imam Muhammad Anwaarullah Farooqui (May Allah shower His mercy on him), the founder of Jamia Nizamia has written a chapter in Maqasid Ul Islam, Vol. 6 with the name, “The Sultanate of Hadhrat Ghouse Us Saqalain (May Allah shower His mercy on him).” He has described a miracle of Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam in this chapter.
Butrus Bustani, an instructor in Daairatul Maarif has related that a person came to Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him) and said: One of my girls climbed on to the terrace of the house and vanished from there. Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him) said: Tonight you go to “Karkh” and sit near the 5th mound and draw a circle around yourself with the words: Bismillahi ‘Ala Niyyati ‘Abdil Qadir. When it grows dark, various groups of genies with pass by you. Don’t get frightened looking at their frightening faces. Close to dawn, their king will come with a large army and will ask you what your need is. Tell him that ‘Abdul Qadir has sent me and relate the incident of your daughter as well.
That person went to that place and followed the instructions given to him. When the king of the genies asked him, he said: I have been sent by Shaykh ‘Abdul Qadir Jilani (May Allah be well pleased with him). Immediately, the king got down from his horse, kissed the ground, sat outside the circle and asked him why he had come. When this person related what had happened to his daughter, the king turned to his companions and said: Immediately arrest the person who has done this. Thus, a genie was brought with whom my daughter was also there. The king ordered that the genie be executed, returned my daughter to me and bade me go.
After writing this incident, Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His mercy on him) writes:
Translation: This shows the knowledge of the genies as well that the circle was drawn in Karkh and in spite of the distance the king learnt it as he traveled the whole night and reached the circle close to dawn which was drawn with the intention of the Shaykh. This shows the power of Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him) that his authority over the genies was such that if a circle was drawn with the intention of the Shaykh, the king of genies himself came there and expressed his respect.
