Qasida Ghausia –The Rules and Benefits of The Recitation
Hazrat Pir Syed Tahir Alauddin al-Jilani Alayhi Rahma who was amongst the direct descendants of Ghaus E Azam Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani Alayhi Rahma has outlined the rules and benefits of recitation of Qasida Ghausia.
This Qasida can be recited for all kinds of difficulties relating to the worldly and spiritual life and is beneficial in solving problems. Recitation of this Qasida Ghausia can also grant a person the vision of Allah Ta’ala and of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam and Awliya Allah as well. One has to possess the correct beliefs, obey the Shariah, who speaks the truth and consumes Halal sustenance. I hope that through the Faiz of Qasida Ghausia one will achieve ones objective for the purposes that one is reciting it for.
1. On the first of any Islamic lunar month, recite Qasida Ghausia at least 41 times after Eisha or after Tahajjud. Recite Darood Sharif 11 times before and after. Offer Fatiha for Sayyiduna Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam and Ghaus E Azam Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani Alayhi Rahma and all the Mashaykh of The Qadri Tariqa (radi Allahu anhum). Note that first offer the Fatiha, 11 Daroods, recite Qasida Ghausia, 11 Daroods and then the same Fatiha. While reciting one must make Tasawwur-e-Shaykh or picture his Shaykh. If one gets the Ijazah (permission) of his Shaykh that is better.
2. The benefit of the 1st stanza: The first stanza: Saqaanil Hubbu ta’ali is read 1000 times for 11 days continuously if one has the intention to achieve the Marifah (recognition of Allah Ta’ala). If one wishes to bring back a beloved or someone who is lost or separated must read this stanza every day 500 times for 11 days. Darood Shareef must be read 11 times before and after. The preferable time for this is after Eisha or Tahajjud. One must face the Qibla. All Jalaali and Jamaali (meat, chicken, eggs, etc.) things should be avoided.
3. The benefit of the 10th stanza: The 10th stanza: Wa at la’ani sa’ali should be read 1500 times daily for 11 days for receiving the favours of Allah Ta’ala, for being informed of the Secrets and to achieve the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala. One must be in seclusion and be in a sitting position.
There are a lot of properties associated with this blessed Qasida Ghausia. Among them, the person that recites this Qasida Ghausia eleven  times every day will be near and dear to Allah Ta’ala. Whoever recites this Qasida Ghausia, his memory will be strengthened so much so that whatever he reads or hears he will remember. By reading this Qasida Ghausia will be able learn the Arabic language easily. Whoever recites Qasida Ghausia for forty days for a particular purpose he will be able to fulfil that. If a person keeps this Qasida Ghausia in front of his eyes and reads it three times a day, and if he doesn’t know how to read, he listens to its recitation and doesn’t separate from this blessed Qasida Ghausia, and has a strong belief and love for what he is listening to or reciting, then he will see Hazrat Ghaus E Azam Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani Alayhi Rahma. By reciting this blessed Qasida Ghausia, a nisbah (spiritual connection) is formed with the sincere reciter Hazrat Ghaus E Azam Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani Alayhi Rahma.
