Extracts from Imam Ahle Sunnat Shah Ahmad Raza Khan's (may Allah be pleased with him) poems in honor of Sayyiduna Abdul Qadir Jilani (may Allah be pleased with him) and Hz. Maulana Ibrahim Khushtar's Siddiqui Qadiri Razvi poem's (manqabat) written at the Sacred Mausoleum of Shaikh Sayyiduna Abdul Qadir Jilani (may Allah be pleased with him) in Baghdad.
On Thursday 28th February 1974 (5th Safar 1394 Hijri), His Eminence, Maulana Muhammad Ibrahim Khushtar Siddiqui Qadiri Razvi visited the Holy shrine of the Sultan of Saints, Hazrat Sayyudina Abdul Qadir Jilani (may Allah be pleased with him) in Baghdad. He wrote there 'in front' of Ghaus-ul-Azam a poem (manqabat) of 16 lines on this highly revered 'Sultan-e-Aulia'.
He brought back from the Mausoleum a sacred sheet (Chadaar), which he introduced in Mauritius in 1978. Since then it has always been exposed for public gaze on auspicious occasions at the Sunni Razvi Academy. It is an act of piety and devotion, which Muslim followers present never fail to observe.
Followers will be delighted to read that afterwards a poem penned by His Eminence expressing his feelings about the sacred sheet itself. It is a mark of respect, love and gratitude shown to Shaikh Sayyiduna Abdul Qadir Jilani (may Allah be pleased with him) [Ghaus-e-Paak] on the occasion of the 857th Urs Shareef of this great Mystic (34th for Mauritius). The poetry itself is simply mysteriously enlightening as it comes from the inner most recesses of the Poets heart.
