Sheikh 'Abd al-Qadir al-Jaili or al-Jilani or al-Kilani is one of the 7th-century Muslim scholars (470 AH-561 AH) Imam Sufi and Faqih Hanbali and the founder of the Qadiriyah (Sufi Religious Order) which he used it as a methodology of building society and the great leaders and scholars such as Salah al-Din Yusuf Ibn Ayyub, Shihab al-Din Omar al-Suhrawardi, Moin al-Din al-Jashti and others. His followers still follow his intellectual method which based on the solid foundation of the Holy Quran and the Sunnah of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH), where it and "Qadiriyah" followers, who spread in Bilad al-Sham, Iraq, Egypt and East Africa, had a great impact in the spread of Islam in the continent of Asia and Africa and a great role in stopping the Crusaders invasion and resisting their expansion in Maghreb. In spite of the intellectual deviations added to the pure Qadiriyah founded by Sheikh al-Jilani, by different streams that claim affiliation to him, Sheikh al-Jilani's approach is still followed by the Arabs and others.
In this study, I have tried to show some excerpts of the timeline of Sheikh al-Jilani's history; his life, his origin, his authoritative writings, his thoughts, which were written by his followers, and the scholars' opinions of his era about him, besides, his seven foundations on which he built his approach and methodology; repentance, asceticism, trust in Allah, thankfulness, patience, satisfaction, honesty that derived from the Holy Quran and the words and deeds of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH), and his philosophy and his view of these foundations and their reflection in practice in the ethics and manners of his followers and Muslims in general.
Key words: Sheikh 'Abd al-Qadir al, Al-Muraideen (followers), Method, Curriculum, The Seven principle
