A Question was sent to the great mujaddid Imam Ahmad Rida al-Qadiri, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi, concerning an esoteric phenomenon regarding the soul of Sultan al-Awliya Sayyiduna Ghawth al-A'zam Shaykh Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani, radi Allahu ta'ala anhu, presenting itself to the Beloved Prophet of Allah, ﷺ, on the night of Mi'raj [the Night Ascension].
Many 'scholars' refute this reality and condemn it as a fabrication causing a great deal of confusion in the minds of many Muslims. Hence, an enquiry was sent to his great jurist, as his insight matters of religion was encyclopedic and authentic. His detailed answer to this inquiry is astonishing which will enlighten the heart of the reader.
Sultan al-Awliya; Muhiy'ud-Din Shaykh 'Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani, may Allah sanctify his secret,
born near the Caspian Sea, in a town called Jilan, is one of the most venerated figures in tasawwuf. The venerable Ghawth 'Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani, may Allah sanctify his secret, is noted for his extraordinary spiritual experiences and exploits,
as well as his memorable sayings and wise teachings. It is rightly said
of him that 'he was born in love, grew in perfection, and met his Lord
in the perfection of love.
