Five Treasures of the Qadiri Sufi Order

 

All praises are due to Almighty Allah who made the hearts of Muslims a wealth of Divine secrets. Blessings (Durood) and Salaam (greetings) be upon the Prophet of Allah, Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa (Allah bless him and give him peace) who has knowledge of the unseen through the gift of Allah and who is the owner of Allah’s creation. May Durood and Salaam be on his descendants and companions as they are the bright stars of this Universe.

I, Sayyid Kwaja Sultan Muhammad (may Allah be pleased with him) of Jalesar, hereby declare that I studied Hazrat Ghaus-ul-Azam Qutbe Rabbani Sayyid Abdul Qadir Jilani's "Futuh al-Ghayb" and a few salient points and sayings stood out clearly in my mind. I recorded them in Persian Poetry. When I studied these poems carefully, I found a hidden wealth of deep meanings and I regard them as eternal treasures.

 

I assembled these five poems and named them "The Five Treasures of the Secrets of the Qadiri Order". Every disciple (Mureed) who has the correct Aqida (beliefs) will use every effort to safeguard these five treasures using them to achieve the love and knowledge (marifat) of Almighty Allah to attain freedom in both worlds.

Those who possess these Five Treasures, Almighty Allah willing, will be regarded as fortunate in the saintly office of Shariat. Almighty Allah will reward those who strongly adhere to these Five Treasures.

It was in the year 1117 AH that I was bestowed with the Five Treasures and I revealed them during the rule of Emperor Aurangzeb.

This world and its lovers, and inward feelings are all strong currents and veils. Pass these curtains and you will be a true Sufi; once you are a true Sufi, your heart will be free of external lusts. Your heart will be transposed into a mirror that will portray Allah. When you travel with the love of Allah on the Path of Allah, then you will not notice anyone besides Allah. If not, you are a victim of self-worship and will cause great trouble.

 


None of my followers will die before they repent. They will all die as faithful servants of Almighty Allah. Each of my faithful followers will save seven of his sinful brothers from hellfire. If, in the Far West, the private parts of one of my followers were to be inadvertently exposed, we, although we were in the Far East, would cover them before anyone would notice. I, Sayyid Abdul Qadir have been given a book, a book as long as any eye could see, which contains all the names of the ones who will follow me until the end of time. With Almighty Allah’s blessing we will save all of them. Blessed are those who see me. I yearn for the ones who will not see me. [Courtesy: Secrets of Secrets]
