Praise be to Allah, The Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds. Most Gracious, Most Merciful Master of the Day of Judgment. Thee do we worship and Thine aid do we seek. Show us the straight way, The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace. Not of those against whom Thou art Wrathful Nor of those gone astray.
Praise be to Allah, for every work must begin with the declaration of His praise, as every speech must start with the mention of His name. The people of bliss will take delight in praising Him in the abode of requital and reward. By His name is every sickness healed, and with it every grief and tribulation is removed. Toward Him hands are raised in earnest entreaty and supplication, in hardship and in ease, in good times and in bad. He is Attentive to all voices, with all their various forms of speech in different languages, and He is Responsive to those who feel the need to appeal to Him.
Oh Allah! We seek from Thee Thy Love And the love of those who love Thee, and adorn us with deeds which leads us to Thy Love Oh Allah! Blessings upon our Master Muhammad Your Slave and Your Messenger And upon his family and companions Peace in Abundance in every time and age.
Inshallah, this site has been prepared under the guidance of Al Sheikh Maulana Afeefuddin Al-Jailani Al Qadri Al Baghdadi, the 18th descendant of Al Sheikh Abdul Qadir Al-Jailani (may Allah be well pleased with him) who holds the title of The King of Saints. This is the only authorized website for the followers of Tariqah Al Qadriyah Al-Jailani. Inshallah, with the guidance of our Sheikh and the blessings of Allah, this website is intended to provide assistance to all those who would seek to get closer to Allah through prayer and good deeds in their daily lives. Through this website, Al Sheikh Maulana Afeefuddin Al-Jailani hopes to be able to be closer to his many students throughout the world and to provide a daily interaction with them to assist them to reap the blessings of Allah that are available to us all if we only take the time to look for them.
At the same time, we appreciate the many efforts being made by Muslims around the world to raise the level of awareness of the importance of Islam both in our daily lives and as contributions to the world at large. For that reason we will also, from time to time, highlight other websites that we have found and that provide a significant contribution in this area. As an introduction to this we suggest our readers also look to this excellent site – Muslim Heritage that provides an in-depth look at the contributions that Muslims have made to many fields of endeavour including Art, Science, Engineering, Medicine, plus many more. Alhamdu’llillahi’Rabbilalameen with the blessings and guidance of Allah, Islam has contributed far more to world civilization than many are prepared to admit and of which many more are far too ignorant.
