The world renowned Sufi saint Sheikh Muhiyuddin Abdul Quadir Jilani is known as Ghaus-e-Azam (the highest in the hierarchy of Saints). The Sufi-oriented Muslims, especially in India and Pakistan, flaunt great veneration and love to him as they believe he had reached the status of Siddiquin (the steadfast affirmers of truth), a great saintly epithet that the holy Quran has ascribed to the most righteous and the most God-favoured believers after the prophets (4:69).
