Mausoleum of Abdal Qadir Al-Jilani(RA): >Ref: From SufiWiki<

Because of Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (ra)’s reputation and holiness, there is a great interest in his tomb, which is visited by thousands of people. The tomb was in a small room of the school but part of the building was transformed into a mosque that has been expanding over the years. A marvellous dome was built on the winter prayer room. The biggest dome in Iraq built in 941 AH/ 1534 AD is white and has impressive dimensions and splendid architecture and decorations which can be seen from afar. It has been repainted from time to time. In 1970, it was extensively restored; the blue dome was renewed and other domes, decorated with Qashani, were built close to the white dome.

This mausoleum is considered one of the largest holy places,mainly for Sunni's, in Iraq, with its numerous internal and external additions. It has a big esplanade and a "musalla" (place of prayer) capable of welcoming 1,100 persons. It is surrounded by a building on two levels consisting of 66 modern, furnished rooms, serving as residences for the sheikhs. There are also other rooms for Zikr, that is usually held on Friday evenings, or on some religious occasions, such as the Mawlid (birthday of the Prophet SW), or at the time of the burial of the sheikhs and eminent personalities.
