The Blessed Litanies of Sammania

ByVedat Yuecel

A Collection of Litanies of the Sammania Qadiriyyah Order. The Qadiriyyah (Qadiri), is one of the oldest Sufi tariqas, derives its name from Abd al-Qadir al-Djilani (also spelled as Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani or Abdul Qadir Jilani some spell it Kaylani) (1077-1166), a native of the Iranian province of Gilan. In 1134 he was made principal of a Hanbalite school in Baghdad. The order is one of the most widespread of the Sufi orders in the Islamic world and can be found in India, Pakistan, Turkey and the Balkans and much of East and West Africa. Some famous Qadiri Sheikhs include Sheikh Abd al-Qadir al-Jaza'iri who led the Algerian resistance to French colonialism and Sheikh Uthman dan Fodio whose followers Islamized much of West Africa and established the Sultanate of Sokoto in Northern Nigeria. The Chechen people are also mostly followers of the Qadiri Sufi order as was the famous traveller and writer Isabelle Eberhardt.
