KHIDMAT TO THE "PEER-O-MURSHED"
THE ATTENDENCE AT "AALA DARBARS"
Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) remained in the company of his Peer-O-Mursheed (Religious and spiritual leader) , Hazrat Khwaja Syed Usman-E-Harooni Chishty for twenty years and served him devotedly and when he was on journey along with his Peer-O-Murshed , he used to keep all the necessary things upon his head.
Hazrat Khwaja Syed Usman-E-Harooni Chishty (A.S.) said; "I am proud of such a disciple like Moinuddin. Attending (Khidmat) a superior (Peer) and his appreciation are only the destiny of Haqiqat and Marfat . Huzoor Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) told that by attending and obedience to a Peer, high rank is being bestowed. He said that, "At first my 'Murshed takes me with him to 'Macca Moazzema' and after getting free from Hajj , my Peer prayed 'Forgive the followers of Rasool-E-Paak (S.A.W.) . O Parvar Degar-E-Alam; accept my Moinuddin in your Bargah. An invisible voice come "I've accepted; and again Peer-o-Murshed prayed "Make Moinuddin as like as me and bestow success." The voice come "Aie, Usman, Moinuddin is my beneficent . I am pleased with him and include him among my all beloveds. "This news came into being the reason of happiness for my murshed and for myself. After that, Peer-o-murshed takes me with him to Madina Manawara at the 'Bargah of Rasool-E-Paak (S.A.W.) and going there he offered, the Nazrana of Salat-o-salaam and Darud-E-Paak and prayed "Aie Aaka (Lord) and Moula accept my Moinuddin at your 'Bargah' and your 'Khidmat' "A voice came from the Darbar, "I've accepted Moinuddin. He is the leader of all 'Values' and my grace is always with him." After that Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz presents himself at 'Jannat-ul-Baqi' of Shahzadi-E-Islam SYEDA Maa 'Khatun-E-Jannat' and his murshed prayed for acceptance and grace also over there. His prayers are granted and accepted also. Hazrat Khwaja Syed Usman-E-Harooni (R.A.) and Hazrat Khwaja Syed Moinuddin Chishty (R.A.) were the descendants of Maa Khatun-E-Jannat and Hazrat Ali (A.S.) "Syed".
Hazrat Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) said Rubayee through his prayer:
BAGIRDABE BALA UFTADAH AAM YA MUSTUFA DASTE , BA BEHRE GAM GIRAFTARAM ALI-E -MURTUZA DASTE , ZEH AAH LAWE SHABE MEHRAJ DANISTAM YADDULLAHI, CHIRA DASTAM NAGIRE YA ALI BAHRE KHUDA DASTE
Presents himself at the Bargah of Imamul Auliya, Vali-E-Awwal Hazrat Ali Sher-E-Khuda (A.S.) and his murshed earnestly requested also over there to accept Khwaja sb. (R.A.) and Khwaja sb. (R.A.) accepted . Because , Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin chishty 'Gharib Nawaz' (R.A.) and his peer-o-murshed are the descendants of Hazrat Ali (A.S.) Hazrat Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) presents himself at the Bargah of Imamul Auliya, Vali-E-Awwal Hazrat Ali Sher-E-Khuda (A.S.) and his murshed earnestly requested also over there to accept Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) and Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) accepted. Because, Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty' Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) and his Peer-O-murshed are the descendants of Hazrat Ali (A.S.) . But in case of 'vali' without the permission of Hazrat Ali (A.S.) 'vilayat' is never to get. Because, AllahPaak make the end of Nabuwat with Mohammed Mustafa (S.A.W.) Imamul Ambia and transfer this Nabuwat in Vilayat. And still the permission is not granted by Hazrat Ali Imamul Auliya (A.S.) on the certificate of Vilayat, Vilayat is never to get only AllahPaak better know the glory of Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.).
We just know that he is Aal-E-Nabi (S.A.W.) , Aulad-E-Ali (A.S.)
" TUMHARA DAR TO DARE MUSTAFA SE MILTA HAI,,TUMHARA RANG TO SHER-E-KHUDA SE MILTA HAI,AUR TUHARA NOOR TO NOOR-E-KHUDA SE MILT HAI.
Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) also presents himself at the Darbar of 'Shahauda-E-Karbala Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S.) and attained acceptance .
In the glory of Hazrat Iamam Hussain (A.S.) he recited a 'Sher' (poem) which is famous and popular :-
"SHAH AAST HUSSAIN (A.S.) BADSHAH AAST HUSSAIN (A.S.),DEEN AAST HUSSAIN (A.S.) DEEN PANAH AAST HUSSAIN (A.S.)SARDAD NADAD DAST DAR DAST TE,HAQQA KE BINA-E-LAHELA HAST HUSSAIN (A.S.)
The reason of my writing these topics in detail is that the books which are available in market, in those books these topics such as the attendance of Hazrat Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) with his Peer-O-murshed at the Bargah of Hazrat Ali (A.S.), Maa Khatun-E-Jannat (A.S.) and Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S.) offered prayer and the prayer was accepted etc . are not mentioned . I don't know why the writer did not mention these topics. It is our righteousness (faith) . The main point is that, Rasool-E-Paak (S.A.W.) , Hazrat Ali (A.S.) , MAA KHATUN-E-JANNAT (A.S.), HAZRAT IMAM HASSAN (A.S.) , HAZRAT IMAM HUSSAIN (A.S.) are the ancestors (Jadd-E-Amjad) of Khwaja Usman-E-Harooni (A.S.) and Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) . Incase of worldly matter when a child achieves 1st rank or 1st division in the class and for this achievement the name of the school or college is being high and also make high the name of country . The Principal, VIPS. Prime Minister, President also appreciate and are proud of this child (student) and they applaud and sign the certificate. But Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) is 'Aal-E-Nabi', 'Aulad-E-Ali' and he served his Peer-O-Murshed obediently and devotedly day and night so , Peer-o-murshed said, "I am proud of such a disciple like Moinuddin" when anybody reaches at this stage and Peer-O-Murshed want to take his disciple with him to the bargah of Imamul Ambia Rasool-E-Paak (S.A.W.), Imamul Auliya Hazrat Ali (A.S.) Maa Khatam-E-Jannat (A.S.), Hazrat Imam Hassan (A.S.) and Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S.) , it is quite impossible. Because , his disciple Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) is favorite of AllahPaak and also from His (Khuda) 'Noor'. Today which everybody gets from the Darba r of Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) it is the 'alms' (Sadqah) of his ancestors (Jadd-E-Amjad). He spreads the message of humanity. Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) attained acceptance & appreciation by the grace of Panjetan Paak (A.S.) and by the blessing of his Peer-O-murshed. Khwaja Sb. (R.A.)
KHWAJA GARIB NAWAZ wrote the following Dua in the glory of 14 'Masums' :-
TO KISS THE TOMB (MAZAAR)
Love is possible with living person and due to the relation and connection of the living person, love is also possible with dead person.
'WA MANN YAZANMA SHAYIRALLAHE ,FAA INNAHA MIN TAKWA UL QULUB."
IT MEANS :-
"Those who pay respect to the emblems of AllahPaak, is the abstention of
When Moosa Alaihissalam went to 'Kohetoor' (name of the hill) he heard a voice,
"YINNI ANA RABBUKA FAKHLAH NALAIK".
"It is no doubt that I am your Lord (Rabb) so you put off your shoes." (For respect and adoration).
Once upon a time Hazrat Ayub Ansari (R) the host of
Rasool-E-Paak (S.A.W.) was rubbing his mouth (was kissing) on the holy
tomb of Rasool-E-Paak (S.A.W.) and at that period Marban was the governor
of Madina. He came at that time and said, "What kind of custom is this ?
Hazrat Ayub replied, "I am attending at the service of Rasoolullah
(S.A.W.) not getting stick to bricks and stone.
are so many example of kissing on the hands of superiors. There is such
Hadees passed by my sight in which kissing the tomb is forbidden. It is
written in the "Maaadnul-Maaani", "at the time of Hazrat (S.A.W.) a man
kept 'mannat' that if my hearty desire is fulfilled then I will kiss that
time it was appealed to Huzoor (S.A.W.) that how such person fulfill his
mannat ? Huzoor (S.A.W.) said, "If he kiss the feet of his mother as if he
kisses the door of Heaven and if he kisses on the forehead of his father
as if he kisses the virgins of paradise. Again he said, "Kiss the graves
of parents, if they passed away." It was appealed that if the grave is not
known then what to do ? Huzoor (S.A.W.) said, "Intense on any other two
graves as owns parents graves and kiss on those two graves." According to
this Hadees, to attain grace on the graves of parents, master, kissing is
legal. The graves of the superiors are also same in this order. Allahma
Jalaluddin Sojati (R.A.) and in 'Tausheeh" I saw in the list of my grand
father Mohammed Bin Abu Bakr (R) it was translated by Imam Mohammed that
when my grand father used to open Quran Sharif or Hadees then he used to
kiss and when he used to attend the tomb (grave) then he used to kiss on
the tomb. The tombs (graves) of Auliya Allah have a great position.
Ulama-E-Kiram Tashrih said that it is legal to kiss the thresholds of the
'Aastana' (Darbar) of Auliya Allah.
OFFERING FLOWERS ON THE TOMB (MAZAAR)
In response to the offering flowers on tomb (Grave) there is a Hadees in a "Sahi Bukhar" follows:- Hazrat Ibne Abbas said that Rasoolullah (S.A.W.) passes by two graves and said "here the are suffering anguish. Because, one of them is backbiter and other did not take precaution for wine". Ibne Abbas said, "Rasoolullah (S.A.W.) takes a grew branch and make into two pieces and key on each one grave and said that until these branch get dried. I hope the will feel relief from anguish.
There is a had in "Bukhari Sharif" that Hazrat Bareeda Salmi (R) made his will that on his grave two pieces branches of dates should have to be kept.
There is written in Fatava-E-Almgiri, "To keep rose and flowers on the grave is good". In Fatave-e-Gharaieb, " To keep rose and flowers on the grave is good, because, until these are fresh and use to recite Darud Sharif the dead person set relief through this "Tasbeeh"
As per Hadees, Huzoor Rasool-E-Paak (S.A.W.) said " When a person bring a gift for you then you give him a better gift than him"
Sihaba appealed, "Ya Rasoolullah (S.A.W.) we are poor, then which gift we can give?" Rasoolullah (S.A.W.) replied, "A glam of water is also a gift now attention that to offer flowers on the Mazaar (tombs) of superiors, to offer gift to him with this hope that they will be slow better sift to us, means for our purposes and necessity they will recommend for us to Allah, so flowers are being offered on Mazaars (Tomb).
To offer flowers on the grave is "Sunnat" and until these flower or green leaves, branches get dried, they use to recite Darud Sharif and by the grace of this Darud Sharif dead person get releif from anguish in the grave.
Towards the Darbar of Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) or towards the Darbar (Mazar) of any Vali of Allah you and we offer flowers. It is Sunnat-E-Rasool (S.A.W.), but it is not only that for getting relief from anguish, flowers are being offered. It is for that, along with "Sunnat" this is a kind of gift (Nazrana-E-Aqidat) to offer flowers, after rose-water and the Chaadar for whole Mazaar Sharif are also a gift.
As for an example, if any of your superior or Peer. Who lives out of your city or country, and you will take gift for him, such as, cloth for Sherwani, alter which will be very special for him. Beside this, What ever you like to give him it is separate whenever the people of the world take part in any ceremonies of a superior they give the gift of garlands bouquet to him. The person who goes for Hajj garland and altar are being offered.
But Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty (R.A.) "Gharib Nawaz" is Aal-E-Nabi, Aulad-E-Ali. Through you are not exist in the world but you are still alive and bestows grace.
At the Darbar of Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) by the grace of Allahpaak. There are tones of rose flowers are being offered daily from morning to evening. up to 12 months this tradition is being continued .
You come to Ajmer Sharif and observe this came with your own eyes. As it is the Darbar of an emperor.
DESCRIPTION OF OFFERING
"RAVA KASHFI LEE ONN QABRE RASOOLALLAH (S.A.W.) FA KASHF LAHU LAHA FAQBAT HATTA MATAT."
It means :-
"Remove the veil from the tomb of Rasoolallah (S.A.W.) for me. "When the veil is removed, she weeped so much where as she died ultimately. In the dictionery 'Kashf' means to remove veil from an object. In hadees "it is proved that the gilaaf was lying on the tomb and Hazrat Ayesha (R) gifted the dignity of ziyarat of the tomb (mazaar) of Rasulallah (S.A.W.) If the pilgreems come to the tombs (mazaar) of Auliya Allah with respect and regards,pray through their mediations and offer 'Gilaaf' then there is no evidence against this in shariyat.
The verse in Quran is as follow :-
''ALA INNA AULIYA ALLAHE LA KHAWFOON ,ALEIHEEM WALA HOOM YA ZANOON."
Sehre' chade hue hai Moula ki Rahmaton ke, Dulah bana hua hai Khwaja ka 'Aastana'.
As per quintal flowers are being offered and thousands of chaadars are also being offered. In which some small chaadars are also being offered. But we send these small chaadars to other places as Delhi, Jaipur, or out of the city. Many of the pilgrims use to take with them for well beings and offer on the graves of their superiors. It is a great reason that throughout the year the devotees and the believers of Khwaja Sb (R.A.) flock together at the Darbar. When the Urs of Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) commences, then the mediation of this Urs, so many Urs of the other are Dargahs being celebrated. Because when the pilgrims come over here, before coming they use to present also at other Dargah on the way. This is the matter of devotees. Some of the come on foot only crossing thousand miles distance. Who has no child comes by rolling down to present at Darbar from thousand miles distance. 2 or 3 months before the Urs they set out for coming over here.
His mother, Hazrat Sayeda Ummul Wara Bibi Mahenoor is quoted as saying:
"As soon as I conceived this beloved son, Moinuddin, the house seemed to be full of blessings and prosperity. Our enemies turned into friends and sometimes I had pious and auspicious dreams. When Almighty below life into the embryo, I started hearing exaltation from my abdomen regularly since midnight till dawn. On hearing this auspicious voice, I used to be overjoyed and when he was born, my house was shining with a divine light."

Khwaja Sb on the way to India
Khwaja Sahib (R.A.) reached Sabzwar. The
ruler of Sabzwar Shaikh Mohammed Yadgar was very cruel, tyrant and of bad
The caravan of saints of Allah was now on the border of India. Sky high mountains were in the way but the perfect determination of Khwaja Sahib could not be deferred with the name of Almighty, he stepped into mountains and after passing through the hills, valleys and hindrances he arrived at the border area of Punjab, Shadman & Multan, Lahore the Capital of Punjab & the high rise spires of temples there were telling the tales of splendor of the city. They stayed at the Mazaar of Hazrat Abu Ali Hijweri, Data Ganj Bakhsh (R.A) just out side the wall of the city.
HE RECITED THE FOLLOWING VERSE:---
"Ganj Bakhsh Faize-Alam Mazhar-e-Noor-e-Kuda,Naquisan Ra Pir-e-Kamil, Kamilan Ra Rahnuma.
Naeeb-E-Mustufa (S.W.A) in Ajmer
Ba Andaz-e-Naboo-at Deen ki Tabligh Farmai,Ba Alfaaz-e-Digar Pegambera-e Hindustan Khwaja.
On reaching Ajmer, Khwaja Sahib rested under the shadow of a tree. Immediately some camel drivers came there and asked him brutally to sit at any other place because that place was reserved for king's camels. Khwaja Sahib said that they could make the camels sit at some other place. But the camel drivers were adamant and became violent then he said very politely.
Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) used to stay along with his disciples on a hill near the Ana Sagar and Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) and their companions took a bath and performed Wudu daily on the bank of Anna Sagar. Since, there were situated temples on the bank, the priests did not like it. he used to send his attendant to fetch water for drinking and ablution from the Ana Sagar. One day he sent his attendant to fetch water. At that period vast learned person, King and Brahmans live over person takes water from Ana Sagar and impure their religion. So they complained to the King Prithvi Raj that the muslim person takes water from Ana Sagar. The King said "If I stop to take the water then he (Khwaja Sb.) will be in trouble and will be defeated so, the King deployed his soldiers over there. As per daily routine the attendant comes to take water. When Sarkar Gharib Nawaz heard this news he became angry (Jalal-E-Haideri) Khwaja Sb said" EE KARBALA NASTH" (This is not Karlala). Because for his ancestor Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S.) and Shahid-E-Karbala, Yazid stopped the water. This was just of keep the promise of his (Hazrat Imam Hussain A.S.) grand father (Maternal) and Marzi-E-Moula, otherwise if Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S.) kicked on the ground it flower the water abundantly.
Any way, Huzoor Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) sent his attendant with a "Kosha"( a kind of small verssel) to the particular place where the soldiers were deployed and said to his attendant, "take this and give order to the water, "Khwaja Sb. calls on you" when the attendant said the same word, the entire water of Ana Sagar came into that Kuza (earthen pot) and not only that, all the rivers and ponds in Asia became dried and the women who used to feed milk to their children, their milk was also stopped to come. There were massive disturbance occurred every where. When the Hindu communities came to know this matter, they understood that this was done by that "muslim guru" (Khwaja Sb.)When the peoples became perplexed and each and every villagers gathered and peoples from for distance came to Ajmer and a large crowd were present at the Darbar-E-Khwaja. Among then soldiers priests, Brahmans and upper class and lower class peoples were present. They were begging his pardon saying "pardon us" you are grand child of Hazrat Mohammad Mustafa (S.A.W.) and you came as "Rahmat dil Hind" for hind. They all fell down on his feet and accepted Islam. Huzoor Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) for given them and gave order to Khwaja Fakhurddin Gurdezi (R.A.) to let the water free from the "Kuza" and power into the Ana Sagar. He did the same and all the dried ponds and rivers filled with water again. When this news spread out every where that it was a miracle and done by a muslim guru, the people from for distance came to khwaja Sb. (R.A.) and being converted into muslim accepting Iman. By this way Islam spread out every where.
This is the "Jala-E-Haideri" of Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) which I am explaining here to you, only due to "Jala-E-Haidri" he stopped the water, After this incident he never got to be angry like this further. Now his he Darbar Showers grace and blessing on every body.
"PANDIT JI DEVOTEE OF KHWAJA SB"
The Pandit reached at the Darbar of Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) and shook his hand and explained all the situation. Every body sitting over there watched this seen. Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) asked the pandit "you did not inform me about your son's such condition" Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) told the Pandit "Call on your son by his name".
Pandit replied humbly " He has gone to that place from where nobody can return back" God bestowed me only one some. So I an now helpless". Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) told him, " I 'm telling you, call on him and tell "oh my son, Khwjaja Sb. (R.A.) is calling you". His son whom the villagers were going to bathe him lying on the cot, opened his eyes and raised and walked on from his village and attend at the Darbar of Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) Seeing this Pandit became overwhelmed. Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) was smiling and said to the Pandit. "Your only one son is quite will". When the boy came towards Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) both father and son fell down on the feet of Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) and both of them accepted Islam and converted themselves in Muslim religion.
This boy when being alive comes running from the village, his relatives, neighbors, men and women of the village, young and old people everybody who came to join in his funeral also come behind the boy and after watching this miracle all the people of every village fell on the feet of Kwaja Sb. (R.A.) and converted themselves in Muslim religion.
Sarkar Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) had spread Islam neither by sword, nor by gun or spears or cannon or by fighting but converted the people in Muslim religion by his politeness and impressive personality and conveyed the message of the descendants of Parwar Diagar-E-Alam and Rasool-E-Paak (S.A.W.)
Conversion of Shadi Deo to Islam
Ajay Pal Jogi accepts Islam
growth of Islam in Ajmer, Prithviraj was very anxious. So he contacted his
family Guru, Ajay Pal Jogi, who was the greatest magician of Indian and
lived in a jungle (Jaypal Nagar) near Ajmer. Raja narrated him the entire
happenings. He considered Khwaja Sb's miracles as ordinary magic tricks.
He assured the king that he would expel Khwaja Sahib (R.A.) He sat on his
Mirg Chhala (deer skin) and left for the Anna Sagar along with his
disciples. The devils army was riding on flying lions, and holding pythons
in their hands like lashes. They gathered on the bank of Anna Sagar. The
neo-Muslims companions were afraid of seeing devils-army. But Khwaja Sahib
draw a circle with his finger around them and asked them not to go out of
When Khwaja Sahib saw him, he gives order (Huhum) to his (Khadaw, Nalain) slippers to take him down. The slippers also took a fly into the sky and started beating the Jogi. After sometime the people saw that the slippers were riding on his head and he was forced to fly down. At the end Ajay Pal Jogi was defeated. Ajay Pal Jogi came down and said "Khwaja Sb. your slipper has so much power that I applied my all tricks at my best to remove your slippers, but it was beating on my head continuously so, whereas your slippers has such power then how much power you have " Forgive me, I am defeated". He fell down on the feet of Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) and accept Islam and Known as Abdullah Biyabani.
that the magic had no value and he wasted his entire life in exploring and
gaining of magic. He was ashamed and repented. Khwaja Sahib was kind
enough, so he forgave him. Jogi accepted Islam
and became a disciple. Hazrat proposed his new name as Abdullah. His service is to feed the hungers, to give the water to
thirsty person and to show the way to the person who forget his way. He
became immortal. His other disciples and people who were present there,
also joined him.
People in Ajmer and adjoining areas call him. His service is to feed the hungers, to give the water to thirsty person and to show the way to the person who forget his way. He became immortal.
Abdullah Bayabani Bhoke ko khana, Piyase ko pani, Bhole ko rah dikhane.
Dar ke Darban ko Rizwan bana daite hai,Aasion ko Abuzar, katroon ko Salman bana daite hai,Ja-kar Hakim se kaho sikhle Sakhwat ke hunar in-se,Bheek daite hai to Sultan bana daite hai
Offer of Islam to Prithviraj
When he reached him, Khwaja Sahib refused to accept him as his
disciple. When asked, he gave three reasons for the refusal.
When Khwaja Sahib know about the
order he became angry and he said, "We
hand over Rai Pithora to the army of Muslims after arresting
him." The people were surprised but had great
faith in him,. so they started waiting for the outcome.
Prediction of victory to Shahabuddin Ghauri
On the same day of the prediction, king Mohammed Shahabuddin Ghauri, who was in Khurasan, dreamt an old saint, saying:
"O Shahabuddin! Almighty has granted you kingdom of India. Get up and proceed towards India. Arrest the king and punish him."
After it, the Saint disappeared. When the king awoke he was under a peculiar state of mind. The vice was still echoing in his ears, saying, 'proceed towards India. Success will be yours.' The king informed learned men. They congratulated the king and predicted his victory.
King Shahabuddin Mohammed Ghauri was badly defeated by king Prithvi Raj one year back in the field of Tara-en (Tradri), and with great difficulties, he could save himself and reached Ghazni.
The dream created great enthusiasm in his heart.
Gharib Nawaz's words were to be proved true, and they were.

contrary, king Shahabuddin, adopting war tactics, divided his army into
four parts under the command of four able generals and sent them to fight
one after another. Rajput fought with hreat courage and bravery that
disappointed the Sultan's army. But he adopted another tactic. He lagged
behind in an organized manner showing that he is defeated. Rajputs
followed then in a disorganized manner. When the king saw the Rajputs
disorganized, he attacked with his gresh army.

Marriages and Children Khwaja Ajmeri,
At the age of about 50 years, when he had almost settled in Ajmer and the preaching services were on the top, he dreamt Prophet Mohammed (SAW) who said, "O Moinuddin! You have been very active in obeying Allah's orders but why didn't you follow my Sunnah." Thus, Khwaja Sahib (R.A.) made two marriages, one after another.
In those days a saint Syed Wajihuddin Mash-hadi (R.A.) was staying in Ajmer. One night he saw Imam Jafer Sadiq (Alehis Salaam) in dream, who quoted Prophet Mohammed (SAW) as saying to give his daughter in marriage to Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty as he is one of the loving persons of Allah and his Prophet (SAW).
When he woke up, he was very happy. He went to Khwaja Sahib and told about his dream. Khwaja Sahib said, "Though he is on the verge of his life and has no need to marry but obedience of Prophet Mohammed (SAW) is also necessary, so I accept the offer whole heartedly and ready for the marriage. This made Syed Sahib (R.A.) very happy and he married his daughter Bibi Asmat with him.
Khwaja Sahib (R.A.) also had a second marriage. Some historians write that his second wife Ummatullah was the daughter of a Raja, who accepted Islam willingly.
Three sons and one daughter were born to the two wives whose names are :
(1) Hazrat Khwaja Syed Fakhruddin Chishty Abul khair (R.A.), Son
(2) Hazrat Khwaja Syed Hissamuddin Abu Swalah (R.A.), Son
(3) Hazrat Khwaja Syed Ziauddin Abu Sayeed (R.A.), Son

Baba Farid Sb
When Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) reached Delhi, Khwaja Qutubuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki (R.A.) wanted to inform king Shamsuddin Altamash about his arrival but Khwaja Sahib (R.A.) forbid him.
But how the news of his arrival could be hidden. It spread all over Delhi and all Ulema, Sufia and King Shamsuddin Altamash himself came to see him. In those days, Baba Fariduddin Ganj Shakar (R.A.) was busy in devotion and self purification in a way that not a single drop of blood remained in his body. So he could not come to see Khwaja Sahib (R.A.). He was too weak to visit Khwaja Sahib. So Khwaja Sahib enquired from Hazrat Bakhtiyar Kaki (R.A.), "Is there anyone else among your disciples who could not come to see me?" Qutub Sahib said, "One of my disciples Baba Fariduddin Ganj Shakar (R.A.) could not come to see you since he is busy in devotion."
Thus, Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) said, "Let us go to see him."
Baba Fariduddin Ganj Shakar was so weak that he could not stand up to pay respect. So he started weeping. Khwaja Sahib said, "O Baba Bakhtiyar! How long you will keep him pressed into self purification and devotion? Give him something, "Qutub Sahib (R.A.) answered, "What can i offer, when you are here?"
Khwaja Sahib got up, hold Baba Farid (R.A.) with his arm and asked Khwaja Qutubuddin (R.A.) to hold him with his other arm. Both the saints blessed him a lot Baba Farid (R.A.) was lucky enough to have this opportunity.

Master (Khwaja) of Masters (Khwajgan) Moinuddin (is);
Noblest (ashraf) of all saints (auliya) of the world.
Sun of sphere that Lords the Universe (kon-o-makam).
Emperor who graces the throne of the dominion of faith and certitude (yaqin).
What can be uttered about your beauty (jamal) and perfection (kamal);
For, it is evident from the impregnable (Spiritual) fortification (hasn-o-hasin).
An opening verse (matla) in praise of your attributes I offer;
which in purity is like a precious pearl (durr-i-samin).
Oh ye, whose threshold is an altar (qiblah) for the faithful; (ahl-i-yaqin).
Where the sun and the moon rub their forehead.
It is thy royal threshold that faces are in reverence rubbed;
By hundreds of King (maliks) of the stature of the Emperors (khusro) of China.
The attendants (Khadiman) at thy shrine are all like the keeper of Paradise (rizwan);
As is your mausoleum (roza) in sanctity certainly a sublime Paradise.
(where) A particle of dust is ambergris (abir) in nature;
And a drop of water transparent and pure (maen)
Oh, Almighty as the Sun and the Moon endure;
May the Chishti lamp resplendently sparkle.
Winter 5:00 am 9:00 pm
Summer 4:00 am 10:00 pm
Season Gates are opened Gates are closed
In between 5:00 am to 9:00 pm and 4:00 am to 10:00 pm, 15 minutes are being increased for 2 to 3 months. As the times of Namaz are being changed, like this 15 minutes are being increased and less also for the time of opening and closing of the gates. The Dargah is being opened for pilgrims to perform worship, listening Qawwali and to recite and Tasbeeh silting whole night.
Karka is Sung by the official hereditary Qawwals of the shrine daily at night at the time of closing of the doors of Khwaj's Mazaar (tomb). The verses of karka are not available any where in writing, except in Hamar-i-Khwaja of Abudl Bari Mani, who too collected it form the qawwals orallyn and verbally.
Due to its mixed local and Bhojpur dialect there could be some omission and mispronunciation by these hereditary singers, whose generations have sung it since time immemorial.
Karka means folklore (lokdhwani) or verse (pad) or cantos (charan). Its ragni (musical mode) is Gidara/Khidara and tal (musical measure) is jhap, in musical terminology, which is generally sung during moonlit nights.
It is also claimed by some people that karka is a Rajput war song usually sung to motivate the soldiers to fight to a finish. Here, as it refers to the successful, final, encounters of Khwaja Sahib with Jogi Ajaipal, therefore, it is also the final or last ceremony of the day at the Shrine.
However, in one of the verses of Karka, Khwaja Moinuddin has been referred to as Khwaja Hassan Dan. Hassan being Khwaja's real name, while Dan most probably appears to be his title (abbreviation of Dana i.e. ariff/Gnosic or Dani/generous or indicates the abbreviated form of Danani, (person possessing divine wisdom or omniscience) or of his full name Moinuddin, and also seems his nom-de-plum. The Karka ends with a prayer byn its composer Shaikh Matha or Mithu (a Khadim) or Roora Mithu a musician at Udaipur court in Jahangir's reign.
Before closing Darbar Sharif Qawwal read these Words daily.
