“Ada seorang wali besar, Sayyidina Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (q).  Setiap hari seorang muridnya, di hadapan dan di sekelilingnya seperti kalian, mempunyai seekor ayam jantan yang besar.  Jadi Sayyidina Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (q) menyiapkan ayam-ayam jantan itu.  Suatu hari ia datang dan melihat muridnya memakan seekor ayam jantan hingga habis sepenuhnya, ia tidak membaginya kepada orang lain.  Seorang wanita tua yang tidak mempunyai makanan untuk diberikan kepada anaknya berkata, “Aku tidak mempunyai apa-apa untuk diberikan, tetapi aku akan mengirimkan anakku kepada Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (q), ia bisa makan separuh ayam dan membawa sisanya ke rumah.  Jadi ia membawa anaknya kepada Syekh.  Wanita itu sangat senang, ia melihat bahkan mereka juga memakan tulang-tulang ayam itu, mereka menelannya.  Jadi ia datang kepada Syekh dan berkata, “Wahai Syekh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (q), aku membawa anakku untuk menjadi muridmu,” kemudian ia pergi. Sayyidina Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (q) berkata kepada murid senior, “Bawa dia ke lantai bawah selama 40 hari dan berikan kepadanya sepotong roti dan tujuh buah zaitun setiap hari.”  Jadi beliau meninggalkannya di sana selama 40 hari.  Anak itu yang tadinya bertubuh besar lambat laun menjadi kurus, ia tidak makan ayam sama sekali.  Dua bulan kemudian wanita itu datang untuk melihat anaknya, ia mencari-cari tetapi tidak dapat menemukannya.  Ia melihat yang lain memakan ayam jantan, tetapi di mana dia?   Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (q) mengatakan kepada mereka untuk membawanya ke lantai bawah, dan ia melihat anaknya di sana dengan tubuh yang sangat-sangat kurus.  Ia berlari menemui Sayyidina Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (q) dan mengeluh, “Aku membawa anakku kepadamu agar ia bisa makan ayam, aku tidak membawanya untuk akan roti dan air!”  Beliau berkata, “Kau berkata untuk menjadikannya sebagai muridku.  Kau lihat semua ini?  Mereka melakukan khalwat dulu sebelum menjadi orang, dulunya mereka anak anak-anak yang perlu diberi popok.  Aku harus membesarkan mereka dengan membawa mereka ke dalam kesulitan.  Setiap hari sejak pagi hingga sore, mereka berzikir.  Sekarang mereka dapat memakan ayam jantan dan memakan tulang-tulangnya.”

“There was one big saint, Sayyidina Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (q). Every day every one of his students, in front of him and around him like you, had a big rooster. So Sayyidina Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (q) was preparing roosters. One day he came and saw each student was eating a complete rooster by himself, doesn’t share with anyone. One poor woman who didn’t have food to feed her son said, “I don’t have anything to give, but if I send my son to Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (q), he can eat half the chicken and bring the rest home. So she took her son and he said, “I will take him.” She was very happy, she saw that they are even eating the bones, they were swallowing it. So she came to the shaykh and said, “O Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (q), I present to you my son to make him your mureed,” and she left. Sayyidina Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (q) said to a senior mureed, “Put him in the basement for 40 days, and give him one piece of bread and seven olives once a day.” So he left him there for 40 days. The boy was this big and with heavy build, and he slowly, slowly became slim, not eating any chicken. The lady came after two months looking for her son and she couldn’t find him. She saw everyone eating the roosters, but where was he? Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (q) told them to take her to the basement, and she saw her son had become very, very slim. She ran up to Sayyidina Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (q) and complained, “I gave you my son to eat rooster, I didn’t give him to eat bread and water!” He said, “You said to me, make him your mureed. See all these? They went into seclusion to become men. When they came to me, they were not men, they were children who needed diapers. I had to raise them by putting them into hardship. Every day from morning to evening,dhikr. Now they can eat rooster and eat bones.”
