Shaykh al-Mu’ammar al-Jarrad (q.s.) on Shaykh 'Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani (q.s.)

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

As translated by Ustadz Mukhtar Holland, it is recorded, in Qala’id al-Jawahir, that Shaykh al-Mu’ammar al-Jarrad (q.s.) once said, “These two eyes of mine have never set sight on anyone of better moral character, nor of broader inner feeling, nor of nobler personality nor of kinder heart, nor of greater loyalty and affection, than Shaykh ‘Abd al-Qadir.  Without regard for the majesty of his stature, the exalted nature of his rank, and the vast extent of his knowledge, he would support the lowly and challenge the great.  He would always be the first to offer the salaam, and treat the poor with humble respect, though he would not stand up for any of the high and mighty and the notables, nor would he go knocking at the doors of any minister or ruler.”
