Shaikh ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani lived almost a thousand years ago, but his words transcend the time and place in which they were recorded to span the centuries without difficulty.
Revered to this day as the supreme spiritual helper (al-Ghawth al-A ‘zam), the Shaikh (may Allah be well pleased with him) addresses his audience at a level that bypasses the obstacles of the heart and mind. His discourses are justly ranked among the most beautiful oratory the world has ever known.
in the snatches of his talks, his sayings and his responses to questions, compiled under the title Utterances of Shaikh ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani, the reader will discover an extremely valuable supplement to Revelations of the Unseen and The Sublime Revelation. Our translation(s) of this and other of the Shaikh’s works surviving tin manuscript form in Oriental collections around the world are intended to make them more widely available and accessible to Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
Translated by Muhtar Holland, one of the foremost translators of classical Arabic, Uttereances of Shaikh ‘Abd al_qadir al_jilani and our previously published and forthcoming volumes of the Shaikh’s works should be a welcome addition to the library resources of scholar and layman alike, and of great interest to students, teachers, and seekers of spiritual knowledge and understanding everywhere.
