Wali Allah

Believers who suppress their inner desires and devote their life in remembrance of Allah (S.W.T) are called AWLIYA-ALLAH (Friend of Allah). They are also known as a Wali (Saint).

Allah (S.W.T) says:  “Ala inna awliyaa Allahi la khawfun Aalayhim wala hum yahzanoona”

"Listen carefully and no doubt there is no fear, nor any grief upon the friends of Allah." (Surah Yunus: 62).
Wilayat (Sainthood) is a very special rank and position of acceptance given by Allah (S.W.T) to His beloved servants. 

A Wali is a pious Muslim who attains this position of Wilayat.

Wilayat is deduced from the root word “Wila”, which means closeness. Some attain this position due to their sincere devotion and worship. Some attain this position from birth, but ultimately, it depends on Allah’s mercy and kindness. 

Wilayat is a shadow of Nabuwat (Prophethood). 

A Wali, no matter how great his status cannot reach the status of a Prophet or a Sahabi of the Beloved Prophet (S.A.W)

All the Awliya Allah belong to the Ahle Sunnah Wal Jammat.

The most universally acclaimed Saint of all times and the most celebrated is Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (R.A).

He is the beloved of Allah (S.W.T) who throughout history has been showered the titles of Muhyiddin (Reviver of Faith), Qutb Rabbani (The Spiritual axis established by the lord), and Ghaus al Azam (The Greatest Helper, the Greatest Saint).
