The Qadiri Treasures, Explained

by Huzoor Mufassire Azam Hind Ibrahim Raza Khan Qibla

Huzur Ghawth al Azam Sheikh Abdul Qadir Al Jilani

has commanded his Mureedeen to
the five treasures of the Qadiri Order after each Salah 100 times. By adding th
e Blessed name of Allah Almighty it completes its astounding benefits;
1.YAA AZEEZU YAA ALLAH (O All Mighty, O Allah) after Fajr Salah
2.YAA KAREEMU YAA ALLAH (O Ever Generous, O Allah ) after Zuhr Salah
3.YAA JABBAARU YAA ALLAH (O All Compelling, O Allah ) after Asr Salah
4.YAA SATTAARU YAA ALLAH (O Coverer of faults, O Allah ) after Maghrib Salah
5.YAA GHAFFAARU YAA ALLAH (O All Forgiving, O Allah ) after Isha Salah.
Men of extreme spiritual wisdom know very well, the secrets these particular sup
plications hold and what benefits the timing of these supplications hold.
My habit is one of summarising so I will present a brief summary below;
1.YAA AZEEZU has been commanded to us, to read after the Fajr prayer, this is du
e to the commencing of the day, one is preoccupied in fulfilling his worldly cho
res and will come into contact with friends and enemies.
Ya Azeez means O. Almighty, The Strong, Dignified and Powerful.
By reciting this attribute one will overcome all problems and will gain honour,
dignity and respect, especially when faced with difficult situations.
Without doubt one who remembers Allah Almighty is honourable and overcomes his a
dversaries .

2.YAA KAREEMU has been commanded to us to read, after the Zuhr Salah. The rule i
s that flowers open their buds in the evening and spread their fragrance through
out the night and wither in the afternoon, therefore to recite this attribute at
this time, one has great hope of increasing ones sustenance.
3.YAA JABBAARU is to be read after the Asr Salah, it is from the Asmaae Jalaaliy
yah (very powerful). The time of Asr is when iblees calls a meeting on the surfa
ce of the ocean with great pride and show, where all the shayaateen gather to di
scuss ways in which to deceive and destroy mankind. Every Human has an individua
l shaytaan who attends this meeting and it is here, where it is decided between
the shayateen, that you will do this, and I will do that.
Therefore this is the time to remember Allah Almighty with this name so that his
wrath be on these shayateen and his protection be on us from their mischief.
4.YAA SATTAARU is to be read after Maghrib Salah, once the sun has set, and dark
ness sets. This is the time when animals of prey, snakes, thieves, robbers and o
ther harms are out and about. Calamities and catastrophes swirl around in the da
rkness, hence the meaning of reciting this supplication is to call on the Almigh
ty to protect and safeguard us from all these dangers. Furthermore mankind tends
to commit more sins during the night, which is why one should seek his protecti
on at the beginning of the night so that we are veiled from this and we remain s
teadfast .

5. YAA GHAFAARU is to be read after Isha Salah, the sins committed by mankind du
ring the day for which he is punishable, The Mercy of Allah Almighty prevents th
e Kiraaman Kaatibeen ( Honourable recorders ) from recording these until one goe
s to sleep without repenting and asking for forgiveness.
If one asks for forgiveness and repents for his sins before sleeping i.e by reci
ting Yaa Ghafaaru Allah Almighty will erase these from his book of bad deeds.
This is also one of the reasons we have been instructed to avoid worldly convers
ation after the Isha Prayer, and also to delay Isha for a part of the night is b
etter so that one can sleep immediately after performing Isha Salah.
The benefits of repenting cannot be described. It is stated in a Hadith Shareef
the one who repents after sinning, it is like he has not committed that sin at a
ll. ( Sunan ibn Maajah ,Sunan albayhaqi alkubra )
In another Hadith Shareef it is stated, glad tidings be for one who finds plenty
of istighfaar in his book of deeds .(Ibn Maaajah ,baabul istighfaar )
In Surah Nooh

[Nooh 71:10]I therefore told them, Seek forgiveness from your Lord; He is indeed M
ost Forgiving.
[Nooh 71:11] He will send down abundant rain for you from the sky.
[Nooh 71:12] And will aid you with wealth and sons, and will create gardens for y
ou and cause rivers to flow for you.

Sayyiduna Huzaifa
once presented his ailment of his tongue, in the Blessed court
Most Beloved
which wasn t being cured by medicines, to which The Most Beloved pr
escribed Istighfaar.
Imaam Ul Aarifeen Sayyiduna Hassan Basri
was approached by a group of people at
e of famine, to which the great Imam prescribed Repentance in abundance, one com
plained of difficulty with finances and daily life, to which he again prescribed
repentance with abundance. Another complained regarding his crops withering and
dying and his orchards drying up to which he was also given the wazifa of repen
tance. After this, the final questioner asked regarding him not having any child
ren he also was given the wazifa of repenting and begging for forgiveness, due t
o istighfar all these people were successful in their needs.
