Abdul-Qadir ibn Abi Salih Musa ibn Abdullah ibn Yahya ibn Muhammad ibn Abu Muhammad AbuBakr Dawud ibn Musa ibn Abdullah ibn Musa Jawni ibn Abdullah ibn Hassan al-Muthanna ibn Hassan ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib , and this on his father side so you can see why they call him al-Hassani due to his tracing up to the Prophet's Nephew Hassan ibn Ali. On his mother side, she is the daughter of a saintly person Abdullah Sawmai who was a direct descendant of Imam Husain ibn Ali making the Shaykh also al-Husayni due to this.
Al-Gilani was born in 1077 A.D. (470 A.H.) in a small town of Iranian Gilan Province. His ancestors were Syeds who settled in Gilan (arabacized to Jilan) hence the epiphet of al-Jilani.
“ Sayyid Abu Muhammad Abdul Qadir was born in Naif in the District of Gilan in Persia (Iran) in the month of Ramadan....His father's name was Abu Salih, a God-fearing man and a direct descendant of Hazrat Imam Hasan R.A., the eldest son of Ali R.A, the Holy Prophet's (SAW) first cousin, and of Fatima R.A his beloved daughter. His mother was the daughter of a saintly person- Abdullah Sawmai who was a direct descendant of Imam Husain A.S, the younger son of Ali R.A and Fatima R.A. Thus Sayyid Abdul Qadir was both a Hasani and Hussaini........ SUBHANALLAH

Be courageous and drink, you are my army,
Because the Cup-Bearer of the Fraternity has filled my cup to the full.

There was a wise and influential priest in Baghdad who had many followers. He knew Islam and the Holy Qur’an and had great love and respect for Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). He was ready to accept Islam except for one thing; he could not understand and therefore accept the physical ascension (Me’raj) of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) to the heavens and beyond. The caliph introduced all the wise men and teachers of the time to the priest, but none could remove his doubts. The caliph then sent word to Huzoor Ghaus-e-Azam (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) requesting him to convince the priest.

When Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh) came to the palace he found the caliph and the priest playing chess. As the priest lifted a chess piece to move, his eyes met with those of the Shaikh. He blinked his eyes…. and as he opened them he found himself drowning in a river. He was shouting for help when a young shepherd jumped into the water and saved him. As he came out of the water he realized that he was naked and had been transformed into a young girl. The shepherd asked the girl where she was from and she answered from Baghdad. The shepherd said that they were at a distance of a few months journey from Baghdad. He honoured and protected her but as she had nowhere to go he eventually married her and had three children who grew up.

One day as she was washing laundry in the same river where she had appeared many years earlier, she slipped and fell in. As she opened her eyes…. the priest found himself sitting across the caliph, holding the chess piece and still looking into the eyes of Huzoor Ghaus-e-Azam (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh), who said to him, “Now venerable priest, do you still disbelieve?” The priest was unsure of what had happened and thinking that it was a dream asked, “What do you mean?” The Shaikh asked, “Perhaps you would like to see your family?” and as he opened the door, there stood the shepherd and the three children. Seeing this the priest immediately believed, and he and his followers of about five thousand Christians all became Muslims at the hands of Huzoor Ghaus-e-Azam (Radiallahu Ta’ala Anh).

Sainthood is derived from our Master, ʻAlī ibn Abī Ṭālib r.a, who transferred his light to our Master, Shaykh ʻAbd al-Qādir al-Jīlānī r.a - both personalities were beacons and masters of knowledge and dedicated their lives teaching the religion, therefore, only those chosen and only those who carry the fountain of knowledge, inward and outward can be classified as the saints. A real Pīr should be an ocean of knowledge.

The importance of showing love and respect for Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (R.A) is not something new or a new type of innovation but it is something that has been taught through generations by senior Awliya and our pious elders. This is one of the reasons why Egyarwee Shareef is commemorated on the 11th of every Islamic month to keep alive the flame of love of Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (R.A).

Shaikh Ali Gharthani (R.A) said, Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (R.A) once told me “I asked Malik, the custodian of Hell, do you have any single one of my companions in your custody?” Malik said “No”
by Allah’s Might and Glory, the great Ghous went on to say, “My hand over my pupils is like the sky over the earth. If one of my pupils is not perfectly fine whereas I am perfectly fine, by the Might and Glory of my Lord, my feet will not move from standing in the presence of my Lord until He Taa’la transports me and all of you to the garden of Paradise.”

Shaikh Abdul Qadir (R.A) was once told about screams being heard from a particular grave so he said,” Did he ever receive a garb of honour from me?” The answer was: “We don’t know” so he asked further :“ Did he ever attend my assembly?” again they said: “We don’t know” so he asked again: “Did he ever perform Salaah behind me?” and he was told again: “We don’t know. So he said: “ The negligent is more deserving of loss.” He bowed his head in silence for a while, then he raised his head and said “The angels have just told me that the man in the grave did ONCE see your face and he formed a good opinion of you and Allah has bestowed his mercy upon him because of you.” Since then, no screaming was heard from the grave. 

The King of Awliya Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (R.A) once said, “ If Allah grants me a station of honour in His sight, I shall obtain from my Creator a covenant on behalf of my disciples binding until the Day of Qiyamah to the effect that not one will die without being in a state of repentance and that I must Guarantor for them in this regard.”

Hazrath Khwaja Gesu Daraz Banda Nawaaz (R.A) writes in Lataif ul Gharaib that when in Baghdad, Hazrath Ghousal Azam declared:”My foot is on the neck of every wali,” Hazrath Khwaja Moeenudeen Chisti (R.A) was engrossed in the worship of Allah in a secluded cave on the mountains of Khorasan. When he heard this declaration he bowed his head in such a manner that his forehead touched the ground and said :“Your foot is not only on my neck but upon my eyes as well.
