When we observe The Auspicious Eleventh [Giyaarween Shareef]in which we recite Holy Qur'aan, we perform remembrance of Allaah [Ta’aalaa] [Zikrul laah] recite Salutations on the Holy Prophet[Salaam] and Durood) and send the reward to the pious souls of the Auliyaa, despite the fact that they have attained salvation due to the generosity [Fazl and Karaam] of Allaah Almighty. Due to our recitations Allaah Kareem elevates their already elevated status and they become happy. This is a great act for we have not seen Shaiekh Abd al-Qaadir Jeelaani (may Allaah be well pleased with him) but we have pleased him. Is this something ordinary? No it is a meritorious act for if an Intimate [Auliyaa] Of Allaah Kareem becomes pleased then Allaah [Ta’aalaa] is pleased.
