Al-Jilani the one and only


962 years ago
a gem of Jilan was born
Ghawth al-Azam
the supreme helper
a gift for Baghdad and beyond

Al Hassani al Hussaini
Son of Musa and Fatima
Abdul Qadir the name given
servant of the All-Powerful
Muhyiddin reviver of religion

Mureed of Al-Dabbas and Al-Mukharrimi
head of Madrasa Bab al-Ajz
for almost half a century
spent 25 years wandering in the desert
planting the tree of tariqa al-Qadiri

On him we tawassul
May Allah let us benefit from such venerable soul
