Hazrat Abdul Quader was a famous religious figure in Islam. He was born in Jilan in Iraq. His father died even before his birth.

That time the roads were unsafe; often gangs of robbers fell upon the travellers and plundered their belongings and money. The boy left for Baghdad with a caravan of merchants, but on their way a gang of robbers fell upon them and looted their money.
