About The Book

Shaykh Abd al-Qadir Jilani lived almost a thousand years ago, but his words transcend the time and place in which they were recorded to span the centuries without difficulty. Revered to this day as the supreme spiritual helper (al-Ghawth al-Azam), the Shaykh (may Allah be pleased with him) addresses his audience at a level that bypasses the obstacles of the heart and mind.

The Removal of Cares is the latest in an ongoing series of translations of the Shaykh's spoken and written works. The forty-five discourses contained in This collection could be considered an extension of 'The Sublime Revelation', having been recorded in the year 546 AH, although the dates of the discourses in Removal of Cares overlap somewhat those of that collection. Once again the reader will marvel at the extensive wisdom of Shaikh 'Abd al-Qadir and experience the transformative effect of the blessed grace that accompanied his spoken word.

About Shaikh Abd Al-Qadir Al-Jilani

Shaikh Abd Al-Qadir Al-Jilani In A.H. 488, at the age of eighteen, left his native province to become a student in the great capital city of Baghdaad, the hub of political, commercial and cultural activity, and the center of religious learning in the world of Islaam. After studying traditional sciences under such teachers as the prominent Hanbalii jurist [faqiih], Abuu Sa'd 'Alii al-Mukharrimii, he encountered a more spiritually oriented instructor in the saintly person of Abu'l-Khair Hammaad ad-Dabbaas.

Then, instead of embarking on his own professorial career, he abandoned the city and spent twenty-five years as a wanderer in the desert regions of 'Iraaq. He was over fifty years old by the time he returned to Baghdaad, in A.H. 521/1127 C.E., and began to preach in public. His hearers were profoundly affected by the style and content of his lectures, and his reputation grew and spread through all sections of society. He moved into the school [madrasa] belonging to his old teacher al-Mukharrimii, but the premises eventually proved inadequate.

In the words of Shaikh Muzaffer Ozak Efendi: "The venerable 'Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani passed on to the Realm of Divine Beauty in A.H. 561/1166 C.E

About The Translator

Muhtar Holland was born in 1935, in the ancient city of Durham in the North East of England. This statement may be considered anachronistic, however, since he did not bear the name Muhtar until 1969, when he was moved-by powerful experiences in the latihan kejiwaan of Subud-to embrace the religion of Islam. His freelance activities have mostly been devoted to writing and translating in various parts of the world, including Scotland and California. He made his Pilgrimage [Hajj] to Mecca in 1980.

Muhtar Holland, one of the foremost translators of classical Arabic, Revelations of the Unseen and other forthcoming volumes of the Shaykh's works should be a welcome addition to the library resources of the scholar and layman alike, and a great interest to students, teachers, and seekers of spiritual knowledge and understanding everywhere.
