Al-Fath ar-Rabbani: Sublime Revelation- Shaikh Al-Jilani
 The Sublime Revelation 
Al-Fath ar-Rabbani 
By Shaikh Abd Al-Qadir Al-Jilani
Translated by  Muhtar Holland
Paperback 473 Pages - Al Baz Publishing USA

62 Discourses [Majalis] by Shaikh 'Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani in the guesthouse [ribat] and the schoolhouse [madrasa] in Bagdad, between the years AH 545 and AH 546.
Longer than the discourses of Revelations of the Unseen, these profoundly moving lectures used to be attended by crowds of more than seventy thousand people.
As we have been told in the Shaikh's biography, Necklaces of Gems, more than 400 inkwells would be used in one session by the scribes recording his every word. 
Treasured for centuries by those fortunate enough to have a handwritten copy, the entire 62 discourses are available in English for the first time. These discourses cover every aspect of the spiritual path necessary for those who aspire to attain to the nearness of Allah. Translated by Muhtar Holland.

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.,

An excerpt:

"When the hypocrite talks, he lies. When he makes a promise he breaks it, and when he is trusted he betrays." If a person is innocent of these vices mentioned by the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), he is innocent of hypocrisy [nifaq]. These characteristics are the touchstone and the distinction between the believer [mu'min] and the hypocrite [munafiq]. Take this touchstone and this mirror, and use it to examine the face of your heart. Look to see whether you are a believer or a hypocrite, a monotheist [muwahhid] or a polytheist [mushrik]. Taken from the 22nd discourse of the book
