    15. Divan it consists of a collection of his Persian verses. Inspite of his knowledge and position Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani (Allah's mercy be on him) had great faith in Allah.

He was immersed in the love of Allah but was conscious of being a true Muslim and aware of doing good and avoiding forbidden things as revealed in the Qur’aan and practices by Allah’s Messenger. He was tested by Allah and due to his complete surrender to Allah’s will he earned the nearness and pleasure of Allah. One day Satan appeared before Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani (Allah's mercy be on him) and introduced himself as Hazrat Jibreel (Peace be on him). He said that he had brought Buraq from Allah as Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani (Allah's mercy be on him) had been invited by Allah to the highest heavens. Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani (Allah's mercy be on him) prayed Ta-wooz i.e. A-oo-zu-bil-lah and said that the speaker was none other than Satan, as Hazrat Jibreel (Peace be on him) and Buraq could come only for Allah’s Messenger Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam and for no on else. Satan praised Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani (Allah's mercy be on him) and said the he had saved himself from Satan by his powerful knowledge. But Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani (Allah's mercy be on him) retorted that it was due to Allah’s Grace and not his knowledge that he had escaped from Satan’s trap.

Shaikh Ziauddin Abi Naser Musa, son of Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani (Allah's mercy be on him) relates that once Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani was wandering in the wild deserts and was without food and drink for several days. Suddenly clouds gathered and rain showered down. Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani quenched his thrist and thanked Allah. Soon a light appeared on the horizon and a voice said, “I approve of all your prayer and hardship and vigils that you have taken for my sake. I am Allah and reward you by making all unlawful (haraam) things lawful for you. “On hearing this Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani (Allah's mercy be on him) recited, “I seek the protection of Allah from Satan accursed. (“Ta-wooz). At this the light disappeared, again a voice was heard saying, “ O Abdul Qadir Jilani, your knowledge and scholarly excellence has saved you. I have deceived at least 70 saints.” Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani (Allah's mercy be on him) replied that he had been saved by the Grace of Allah and not by his knowledge or scholarly excellence. When Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani (Allah's mercy be on him) was asked how he could recognize the Satan so easily, he informed that making unlawful things lawful was inconsistent with the Shariat and wrong could not have been from Allah. Also when Haraam things were not allowed to Allah’s Messenger Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam then how could it be allowed to any other person. It was his deep concentration and unshakable faith in Allah and the love for Allah and Allah’s Messenger that he became close to Allah and came to be known as Mehboob-e- Subhaani. Allah accepted his prayers and fulfilled his request and when he prayed for others Allah showered His blessings on them.
