Life Events -Of Hazrat Ghaus e A'zam Shaiekh Saiyyid Abdul Qaadir Jeelaani [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] continued...excerpt speech by Allaamah Kaukab Noorani Okarvi
Hazrat Ghaus al-A’zam [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] was a born Walee.
After 14 to 15 days it had become known in Jeelaan, that at the residence of the Saiyyids [Saadaat], a son has been born who is fasting since birth and is a Walee of Allaah Kareem. Many men and women came to see this child who is a born Walee and is observing fasts. After, 29 fasts clouds had gathered and the moon could not be seen.
An elderly person said that they should not be perturbed; they should go home eat, read Ieeshaa and the ‘prescribed additional evening prayer of Ramadaan’ [Taraweeh] and partake of the ‘pre-fast meal’ [Sehri] the next morning. He said, ‘we will go to Abu Swaaleh’s [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] home and ask if his son is drinking milk or not. Depending on whether he is drinking milk or not, then we would announce Eid or continue fasting.’ They went to the house and enquired and received the reply that the child was not partaking of milk. His mother replied that, ‘this was proof that the moon had not been sighted the previous evening.’ People kept the thirtieth fast. On the Eid Day all the people were partaking of sweets and Hazrat Ghaus al-A’zam [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] was drinking his mother’s milk.
