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.

    

Panjetan ka Noor-E-Nazar,

  Shere Ajmer mai hai Jalwagar.

         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:

                    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 ,

  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.)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 :-

        JANNATUL BAQI  

JANNATUL BAQI

    

   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.)

TO KISS THE TOMB (MAZAAR)

TO KISS THE TOMB (MAZAAR)
There are two kinds of kissing, one for love and other for respect and adoration.

 Love is possible with living person and due to the relation and connection of the living person, love is also possible with dead person.


For love kissing is natural. Islam is called 'Deen-E-Fitrat' (Religious Habit). Parents love their children (kiss them). Hazrat Rasool-E-Paak (S.A.W.) kissed Sahebzade Sayedna Ibrahim (R) again and again at the time of his passing away from the world. Hazrat Rasool-E-Paak (S.A.W.) used to kiss Hazrat Sayedna Imam Hassan (A.S.) to his lips and on the neck of Hazrat Syedna Imam Hussain.


For respect and adoration kissing is proved by Quran .                                                                      
Allah Paak says, 

'WA MANN YAZANMA SHAYIRALLAHE  

FAA INNAHA MIN TAKWA UL QULUB."  

'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 hearts.
To love and emblems means, to love the Quran, to love the Kaba, to love prophet (Alaihissalam) and to all those things which keep relation and connection with Allah Paak. Even Auliya Allah also present is emblem".


To kiss in Hajj and Umrah is also mentioned in Fatava-E-Alamgiri. It is written that "Rasool-E-Paak (S.A.W.) had done himself and said that "When you enter in Khana-E-Kaba, at first, kiss the threshold. So, to pay respect the souls is legal.

When Moosa Alaihissalam went to 'Kohetoor' (name of the hill) he heard a voice,

             "YINNI ANA  RABBUKA  FAKHLAH NALAIK".              

"YINNI ANA RABBUKA FAKHLAH NALAIK".

It means

 "It is no doubt that I am your Lord (Rabb) so you put off your shoes." (For respect and adoration).


Here I am exhibiting Hadees about to kiss the tombs (Mazaar) and to pay respect :

   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. 
Hazrat Bilal (R.A.) when came to Madina after the passing away is Huzoor (S.A.W.) and performed ziyarat of the tomb, he was rubbing his mouth and chest on the tomb and was weeping. "Moib-E-Tibri" said that to kiss the "Hazre Aswad" (divine stone) and Kaba Sharif it propos its that if for kissing such a person for which Allah Paak is being respected then it is legal to kiss that person. Because if no Hadees is exhibited for its legality then no other Hadees also exhibited for its illegality.

 There 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.
Without any aversion Imam Ali (A.S.) declared that to kiss the thresholds of Auliya Allah by the intention of blessing is legal without any aversion.

 

OFFERING FLOWERS ON THE TOMB (MAZAAR)

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
 CHAADAR  ON THE TOMB (MAZAAR)  

 

 DESCRIPTION OF OFFERING
CHAADAR  ON THE TOMB (MAZAAR)


    The 'Gilaaf' which is beingoffered on Kabe-Sharif is also for respect and protection. Since from the period of Sarwar-E-Qainat (S.A.W.) it has been resumed and as per certain descriptions Hazrat Ibrahim(A.S.) offered 'Gilaaf' on Kabe-Sharif' at first. The detail in "Roohul-Bayan" is that Sheikh Abdul Ghani Nabansi (R.A.) said in "Kash funnar onn as-habul quboor" that the custom of laughing is 'sunnat'. To make a dome, to offer 'Gillaf' (chaadar) onthe tombs of Auliya, Suleha and Ulama is legal. It intends that to be respected by the people. So that, the people does not think this tomb low and like this to light on the tombs (mazaar) of Auliya and Saleha is also a kind of respect and care. Because it is legal and cannot be forbidden.


In other Hadees, said that a woman said to Hazrat Ayesha Siddiqa (R)

 

  "RAVA KASHFI LEE ONN QABRE RASOOLALLAH (S.A.W.) FA KASHF LAHU LAHA

FAQBAT HATTA MATAT."

 "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.


    I am witing these topics for this reason that Auliya is that kind of devotee of AllahPaak to whom his tomb (mazaar) is being bestowed. His every work is involved in remembering and worshiping AllahPaak only. He never hankers after wealth and passion like human beings.

 The verse in Quran is as follow :- 

 

''ALA INNA AULIYA ALLAHE LA KHAWFOON

ALEIHEEM WALA HOOM YA ZANOON."

 

''ALA INNA AULIYA ALLAHE LA KHAWFOON ,ALEIHEEM WALA HOOM YA ZANOON."


    Whereas for Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) he is Aal-E-Nabi, Aulad-E-Ali and 'Sayed'. "Sayed" means 'Sardar'. He is from the light (Noor) of AllahPaak. This is the Darbar of an emperor. There are lacks of chaadars are being offered over here and the 'Urs' is the exceptional matter. During the ordinary days from the morning to evening Hindu, Muslim, Shikh, Christian use to present at Darbar and feel peace in mind and attain virtual.


    In the past the Darbar of Khwaja Gharib Nawaz, the emperors offered 'Gilaaf' on which the real gold, silver and precious stones were studded. Now a days, on the best quality cloths on which real works of flowers, Macca, Madina Sharif, Kalma name of Panjetan Paak (A.S.) are embroidered are being offered. This 'Chaadar' is the dress of the Mazaar Paak of Huzoor Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) itre is also being offered on the tomb, sandal-wood powder is also offered till the morning and evening through out the year. Which is being raised during the Urs. To eat this sandal all types of diseases get cured and get safety from all dangers and misfortune. But condition is to eat with deep faith. A white cloth called 'Nima' is being offered on the sandal and it cover the mazaar paak entirely. This 'Nima' suppose to as like as 'kurta' and on this nima the chaadar (gilaaf) made of velvet and best quality cloth is being offered. It covers the mazaar paak entirely and it is suppose to as like as 'Sherwani' on this only the upper portion, a white cloth (9 mtrs. length) is being also offered. Suppose it is as like as 'Imama' Then flower beds, garlands are being offered. This is performed daily.

 


'Sehre' chada hua hai Moula ki rahmaton ke,

                      Dulhabana hua hai Khwaja ka 'aastana'.

                            

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."

A  BRIEF  HISTORY  OF  KHURASAN

A BRIEF HISTORY OF KHURASAN


Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) opened his eyes in an era, which was full of turmoil. The tyrant Tataris were sheding blood with brutality and achieving monetary gains. There was no peace anywhere and anarchy was prevailing in every nook and corner. The Tataris invaded Khurasan and defeated Sultan of Khurasan. They let loose carnage in the area. This was the place where the Tataris on one hand were causing brutality and on the other hand operating against the tenets of Islam. Since, Sultan of Khurasan was defeated the Tataris entered Khurasan without any resistance and ruined a number of cities like Osh (Mash-had), Muqaddam and Neshapur. Boys and girls were made slaves and all the mosques were destroyed innocent people were massacred and many highly respected, knowledgeable scholars were martyred.
Khwaja sahib (R.A.) was 13 at that time. He was very much distressed with this bloodshed and large scale destruction which he witnessed at an early age.

Father,Mother

Hazrat Khwaja Syed Gayasuddin Hassan

Syeda Bibi Umwalwara Mahenoor Sba
Khwaja sahib was at an small age of 14 when his father Hazrat Khwaja Syed Gayasuddin Hassan  left for his heavenly abode, and he became an orphan. He inherited a garden and a mill from his father. After a few months of his father's death his beloved mother Syeda Bibi Umwalwara Mahenoor Sba also left this transitory world. The only means of his livelihood was a garden and a mill, inherited from his father. Khwaja sahib (R.A.) himself looked after the garden. He watered the plants, and took a lot of pain in taking care of the land. In this way, he continued earning his bread and butter.


 
  GARIB NAWAZ

GARIB NAWAZ


      Since his early age, Khwaja Sahib (R.A.) was fond of the company of dervesh, sufis and faqirs and had a great respect for them. One day, as to routine when he was watering the plants, a Majzoob arrived there. The Majzoob was Sheikh Ibrahim Qundoozi (R.A.). When Khwaja Sahib saw the old man, he left his work and stepped forward and welcomed him. He kissed the hand of the old man, took him to a tree and requested him to sit under its shadow. At that time Khwaja Sahib had nothing to offer him. It was the grape season and the bunch of grapes were there on the trees. He plucked a bunch of sweat and juicy grapes, offered him and then sat in front of him respectfully. The God-loving Majoob liked his gesture and enjoyed few pieces of grapes with pleasure. The enlightened Majzoob immediately recognized that the promising child is
GARIB NAWAZ As he had a great respect and love for Derveshes , Faqirs, Garib, Misqeen, love towards all.

Khwaja Sahib had to visit far flung areas to quench his thirst for knowledge. He continued his journey across untrodden ways, terrains of deserts, the rivers, difficult and steep mountains and thick forests. During his long and troublesome journey, he faced a lot of difficulties, till he reached Bukhara. There he acquired knowledge of Fiqh, Hadith and Tafseer and studied books on other related subjects in famous madarsas under the able guidance of eminent scholars of the time like Maulana Hussamuddin Bukhari (R.A.) who awarded him "Dastar-e-Fazilat" and enriched him with the knowledge so vastly that soon he became one of the most eminent and learned scholars of the period. Even then, his thirst for knowledge was not fulfilled, so with the permission of Maulana Husamuddin Bukhari (R.A.) he left for Samarkand and acquired there more knowledge and wisdom in each and every madarsah of the city.


In Search of Truth


Hazrat Khwaja Syed Moinuddin Chishty (R.A.) was very restless and his thirst for acquisition of knowledge further fanned the fire of love and passion. So he left the land of Samarkand and repeating the name of Allah set off towards west. A large number of great holy saints were laid to rest everywhere in the west while a number of sagacious personalities were busy in the welfare and enlistment of the people. From Samarkand, he started his journey to Bulk in the south to continue his search for a Murshid-e-Kamil. But his efforts could not bear fruits and so he kept on traveling, as some internal passion was pushing him towards his goal.
At last he reached a town, named Haroon which was not away from Neshapur.

Khwaja Sahib (R.A.) meets the Pir-e-Kamil


Though Haroon was a small town but Allah was kind enough to its people and showering His blessings on them. In those days, Hazrat Khwaja Sheikh Syed Usman Harooni (R.A.) was there and his presence was filling the town with prosperity and blessings of God.
Hazrat Sheikh Syed Usman Harooni (R.A.) was among Mashaikh-e-Kubbar and people from far and near were gaining benefits from his spiritual knowledge. The needy were getting their desires fulfilled while the seekers of the truth were taking guidance from him.
At last, his love and passion for the truth made him reached to his gole i.e., he entered Haroon town. He was over joyed as he found the source to Eternity.
Since Khwaja Sahib (R.A.) had covered a long distance to reach Haroon town, his face and clothes were dusty. Though he was impatient to achieve his objective but he did not leave sincerity and firmness. He became the disciple of Hazrat Khwaja Shaikh Usman Harooni (R.A.) and the Pie-e-Kamil accepted him as his Mureed.


Hazrat Khwaja Ghaib Nawaz narrated the entire episode as follows :

Hazrat Khwaja Ghaib Nawaz narrated the entire episode as follows :
I presented myself in an assembly where august personalities were gathered and were sitting with great respect.
Huzoor instructed :
"Offer two Rakaat-Namaz".
I followed.
Then he asked me:
"Sit down facing Qibla".
I sat down with great respect facing Qibla.
He then asked me: "Recite Surah Baqar".
I obeyed him. He ordered: "Recite Subhan Allah sixty times". I did it. Then Huzoor hold my hand with his hand, looked at the sky and said:
"I have taken you to God".
At the end, Hazrat Shaikh (R.A.) put a special Turkish cap, called Kulah-e-Chahar-Turki on my head and awarded me a Chugha-e-Mubarak to put on and then asked me to sit down. Now he instructed me to recite Surah-e-Ikhlas a thousand times.

When I finished, he said, "Our Mashaikh complete a Mujahida of a day and night, so go and complete a Mujahida for the same period.

In obedience, I spent one day and one night in prayers and worshiping Allah. Next day I presented myself before him.

He asked me to sit and I sat down. He said, "Look into the sky". I did. He then enquired, "As to where do you see ?"
I answered, "To "Arsh-e-Mualla."
He instructed me to look into the earth. I followed. He then asked the same question: "As to where do you see?"
I said, "upto Tehtussara." he said, "Recite Surah Ikhlas a thousand times". When I completed, Hazrat asked to look into the sky.

I looked and said, "I clearly see till "Hijab-e-Azmat." he then asked me to close your eyes. I did the same. He then instructed me to open my eyes. I obeyed. Later he put two fingers before me and asked, "What do you see?"

I replied, "Eighteen thousand universes are before my eyes." As soon as I completed the sentence, he said, "Now, the job is over".
Later on, he pointed towards a brick, lying in a corner and asked me to remove it. There were some Dinars under it. He instructed me to distribute them among the poor, and that I did. At the end he said, "Be
with us for a few days." And it was a pleasure for me to be with him.


20 years of Service to Pir-o-Murshid

20 years of Service to Pir-o-Murshid


Hazrat Khwaja Syed Moinuddin Chishty (R.A.) became such a faithful follower of Hazrat Khwaja Usman Harooni (R.A.) that he accompanied him at every moment. He carried his bedding, food, water and    other necessary items on his shoulders when on journey. He remained for 20 years in the company  of his Pir-o-Murshid and observed Riyazat and Mujahidat and during this period completed all the stages of Maar-e-fat and Haqeqat, besides gaining knowledge regarding the Israr-o-Rumooz of Faqeeri. 

Whatever guidance he had taken from his Pir-o-Murshid and observed some of his miracles are given below in his own words:


One day Khwaja Usman Harooni (R.A.) said to Khwaja Gharib Nawaz, "On the day of Judgement, no one, either he is a prophet, wali or a Muslim will be spared if he was not punctual to Namaz and he will be thrown into the Jahannam.


Says the Almighty in the Holy Quran :

Says the Almighty in the Holy Quran :


"Those who are not punctual for Namaz, they will be kept in vell." Vell is a well in Jahannam, where the people who do not offer prayers on time will be kept under severe Chastisement. Then he further described that the vell asked the Almighty 70 thousand times that which group will be put under Chastisement. The answer from the Almighty is: "They will be those who do not offer their prayers on time"


Once when I was traveling with my Pir-o-Murshid reached the bank of Tigris river which was over flooded at that time. I was worried that how to cross the river. Gazrat said, "Close your eyes." I did accordingly and when I opened my eyes, we found ourselves across the river. I asked how it happened. He said, "I recited Alhamd five times and thus crossed the river."


Once, I was present in an assembly of Dervesh before my Pir-o-Murshid, an old man came there and said Salaam. Pir-o-Murshid stood-up and replied and asked him warmly to sit down. He said, "My son is missing for the last 30 years. I don't know whether he is dead or alive. I am very much shocked and depressed because of his missing. Kindly help me." He also requested for Fatiha Ikhlas. Hearing the entire episode, Hazrat absorbed himself in contemplation. After sometime he raised his head and asked the present assembly to recite Fatiha Ikhlas for return of the boy. So it was done accordingly. Later Hazrat asked the old man to go and come back with his son as and when he returns.
The old man was on his way back to home, when a man 'informed him about the return of his son. He rushed to his house, embraced his son and returned immediately to Hazrat with his son. Khwaja Usman Harooni (R.A.) asked the boy about his where-about. He answered, "I was on a boat in a sea and the owner of the boat had chained me. Today a Dervash, resembling with you came there, broke the chains, hold me with my neck tightly, and asked to put my foot on his hand and to close my eyes. After sometime, he asked me to open my eyes. And when I opened the eyes, I found myself alone at the door of my house. He wanted to continue, Khwaja Sahib stopped him and asked to keep mum. The old man kept his head on Hazrat's feet and later both the father and the son left away.


Hazrat Khwaja Syed Moinuddin Chishty (R.A.) remained in the service of his Pir-o-Murshid for 20 years and devoted himself to him sincerely and whole heartedly. So the Pir-o-Murshid was very much pleased and impressed and he rewarded Khwaja Sahib with all his blessings. Thus after completing of all the stages of Maarefat and Haqeeqat under his guidance, the Pir-o-Murshid granted him all his Tabarrukat which he had received from the respected Durvesh and Sufi Saints.

 Thereafter he advised Khwaja Gharib Nawaz.


"O Moin! Never be dependent on people, never stay in populated areas, and never ask for any charity from anyone."
Khwaja Gharib Nawaz says, "Later he recited Surah Fatiha and kissed my head and eyes and said, "Be under the custody of Allah. Moinuddin is a friend of God and I am proud of his association with me."


Tours and Meetings with revered Personalities

Tours and Meetings with revered Personalities


It was a coincidence that during that period, Hazrat Khwaja Bakhtiyar Kaki (R.A.) reached there in search of a Murshid-e-Kamil and stayed in Isfahan. He used to be in the service of Seikh Mehmud Isfahani. As he had great faith in Sheikh Isfahani, he wanted to have a 'Bayt' (Fealty) with him to become a disciple of him, but the Almighty had attributed something different. One day, by chance he had a glance at the face of Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti (R.A.) that was shining with divine light. All of a sudden he was attracted to the Khwaja and one day he expressed his dsire to become a disciple of him by performing a 'Bayt'. And so he joined the servitude of Khwaja Gharib Nawaz.


Khwaja Sahib in Baghdad

Khwaja Sahib in Baghdad


After leaving Hamadan, Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz stayed in Baghdad which was a centre of art and learning. A number of great Ulema, Fuzala, Sufia, Sulaha, Atqua and Aulia (great Scholars and pious persons) were present there, and the assemblies were always over crowded with seekers of knowledge. Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) also joined one of them and obtained beneficence.

Khwaja Sahib in Khana-e-Kaaba

ONLY KABA SHARIF PHOTO.

 Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz reached Makkah Muazzamah in 583 Hijra and visited Khana-e-Kaaba.
Most of the time he performed Tawaaf (circumambulation)
 of Kaaba and remained busy in offering prayers.

One day when he was busy in prayers, he heard the Divine voice.
"O Moinuddin ! I am pleased with you and grant you pardon.

          
Ask for anything you wish."

Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) was very happy when he heard this. He immediately went into prostration and prayed with great humbleness,   
"O God!kindly forgive those who are my followers (Mureed".
 
 He again heard the same voice,
"O Moinuddin,
I grant your prayers and all those who enter into your clan,
till the Day of Judgement, will be forgiven."

Khwaja Sahib in Madinah-e-Munawwara

                                        
Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) left Makkah Muazzama and reached Madinah Munawwara and in great humbleness visited Rauza-e-Aqdas. He offered prayers daily in Masjid-e-Nabawi and spent most of the time in Durood-o-Salaam near Rauza-e-Aqdas.
One day when all the persons after the Fajr prayers in Masjid-e-Nabwi offered Salat-o-Salaam and leaving the place they heard a voice.
"Call Moinuddin."
Shaikhur Rauza (Caretaker of the Rauza) announced from Mehrab-e-Masjid (the arch of the mosque) "who is Moinuddin?" All those bearing the name of Moinuddin responded to Shaikhur Rauza. The Shaikh was now confused. How to recognize the particular Moinuddin, who has been desired by the holy Prophet. So he enquired about him and Huzoor (S.A.W.) said:
"Call Moinuddin Chishty."
Hence Khwaja Moinuddin responded to Shaikhur Rauza who took him to the Rauza-e-Aqdas,            
"O Prophet! Here is Moinuddin Chishti."
The door of Rauza-e-Aqdas opened and Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) was called:   
"Qutubul Mashaikh"
"Qutubul Mashaikh" come inside."
Huzoor Khwaja Gharib Nawaz went into the Rauza-e-Aqdas in a state of passion and obtained revelations. Then he was ordered:


"O Moinuddin! Thou is the person who will strengthen our religion.                   
We grant you region of Hind . Go to India, stay in Ajmer and start preaching         
of Islam. Allah will bless you."


Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) came out of Rauza-e-Aqdas paying great respect and honor. He was under a peculiar state of ecstasy. When quenched with passion, he remembered the order of Prophet Mohammed (SAW). He was worried as he was not aware of the location of India and there of Ajmer. In anxiety, the day passed it was isha time. He offered his isha prayers. After offering prayers he fell asleep and had a dream in which he saw the whole map of India with exact position of Ajmer. When awake, he thanked Allah by offering prayers, visited Rauza-e-Athar, offered Durood-o-Salaam and set off for India.

Journey
During his journey, Khwaja (R.A.) also visited Syria, but it is not sure that he visited on way or on return journey.
The following is the description of Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.)'s journey to India in his own words:      
"Once I reached a city, near to Syria. There was a saint who was living in a cave. The flesh of his body was so dried that the skin was stuck to his bones. He was sitting on a piece of cloth while two lions were standing at the entrance. I went to see him but could not dare to enter due to the presence of the lions. Sheikh saw and said, "Don't be afraid and come in."

Tabruqat

Tabruqat,


   After obtaining permission to leave from the holy Prophet, Khwaja Gharib Nawaz returned to Baghdad. His Pir-o-Murshid Hazrat Khwaja Syed Usman Harooni was still in Baghdad. He came to him and told about the Prophet's order. Pir-o-Murshid's joy knew no bounds. He said, "I opt for seclusion to offer my prayers to Allah and so will not come out from the room."
Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz used to go to Pir-o-Murshid at the time of Chasht to acquire spiritual knowledge. This routine continued for about 28 days. During this period, he wrote down whatever he gained from his Pir-o-Murshid. In this way a volume of 28 chapters was compiled in these 28 days, which he named as "Anees-ul-Arwah."
     On the last day, Hazrat Shaikh granted him his Asa-e-Mubarak (sceptre), Musalla (carpet for prayers) and Khirqa-e-Uzma (robes of a Dervesh) and all those Tabarrukat (benedictions and presents) which have been inherited by him from Chishty family and said, "These are Souvenirs. Keep them carefully as I did. If you find anybody suitable, give him. One, who respects and follows the teachings of his Murshid, is a worthy disciple."   Later he saw his worthy disciple Khwaja Syed Moinuddin Chishty (R.A.) off and absorbed himself in contemplation.

Khwaja Sb on the way to India

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 character.
Khwaja Sahib (R.A.) reached Ghazni, and met there Sultan-ul-Mashaikh Syed Abdul Wahid (R.A.). Hazrat Qutubul-Aqtab Khwaja Qutubuddin Bakhtyar Kaki (R.A.), Shaikhul-Mashaikh Hazrat Mohammed Yadgar (R.A.) and Syedus-Sadaat Hazrat Khwaja Syed Fakhruddin Gurdezi accompanied Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) in his journey.

      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

"Ganj Bakhsh Faize-Alam Mazhar-e-Noor-e-Kuda,Naquisan Ra Pir-e-Kamil, Kamilan Ra Rahnuma.


   After leaving Lahore, Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) reached Samana (Patiala) and stayed there. Though apparently people there were sympathetic but in reality they were enemy to him and wanted to harm him. Infect, the mother of Prithviraj, King of Delhi and Ajmer was an astrologer and after having knowledge through her astrology, she informed her son about signs of a person who will be the cause of his destruction. In view of this prediction, the king asked the artists to sketch the person who resembled Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) and sent these sketches to all the border areas. He also ordered his men to kill the person resembling with sketch as and where found. Thus when Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) reached Samana, king's men seeing the resemblance, tried to stop him. But Khwaja Sahib (R.A.) comprehended their inner feelings through. Divine inspiration so he with his companions slipped from the hands of their enemies safely.


In Delhi

In Delhi,


   After passing through Samana, Khwaja Sahib reached Delhi and stayed at a place, a few yards away and just opposite to Raja Khande Rao's palace. He then started preaching of Islam. His way of preaching was so impressive and convincing and his personality was so attractive that most of the people opted for Islam. Gradually, the number of Muslims started increasing and even in a short span of time, the conversion created an alarming situation for the people. Thus, a delegation of prominent citizens visited the ruler of the city and said that their gods were angry because of the arrival of the sinners. If they were not expelled, the entire kingdom was feared to be destroyed due to the wrath and rage of gods. So Khande Rao immediately ordered to expel the Fakirs. But in vain. As soon as the Raja's men went there to execute orders, they were so impressed with the behavior and the truthfulness of Khwaja Sahib (R.A.) that they themselves opted Islam instead of executing the orders. When Khande Rao could not be able to get executed his orders, he lured a man and asked him to kill Khwaja Sahib (R.A.). The man visited him, but Khwaja Sahib through his enlightenment knew about his bad intention. He said to the man, "What is the use of showing loyalty to me ? Why you hesitate to fulfill your intention?"
Hearing this he started trembling. The hidden dagger fell on he ground. He fell on the feet of Khwaja Sahib and converted to Islam.
When Khwaja satisfied himself with the preaching of Islam in Delhi, he left Khalifa-e-Akbar, Hazrat Khwaja Bakhtiyar Kaki (R.A.) there for promoting the religion and set off for Ajmer with his 40 followers. And it was his impressive preaching that before his arrival in Ajmer, hundreds of men had changed their older belief to Islam.

  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.


"Lo, we leave the place and your camel may remain sit here."


   Saying this, he with his followers made his stay at a hill on the bank of Anna Sagar. Next day, in spite of their best efforts the came drivers could not be able to make their camels to stand. It seemed that earth had gripped them. They were very much surprised. At last, they went to the court of king Prithviraj at Taragarh. When the king was narrated the entire incident, he was shocked. He was very proud of his bravery, but it could do nothing for him following the first Karishma of Khwaja Sahib (R.A.). So he ordered the camel-drivers to beg for a pardon from the Fakir. Accordingly they went to Khwaja Sahib and apologized with great respect and humbleness. He kindly said, "Go back and by the grace of God your camels will stand on their feet."
On their return, when they saw that camels were standing, they were annoyed as well as over-joyed.


                                           
    Jalal-E-Haideri

Jalal-E-Haideri,

                              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"

 "PANDIT JI DEVOTEE OF KHWAJA SB"


Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) used to send message of humanity daily as usual sitting among his believers and used to give advice. Among those believers some body also used to come who accepted "Imam" not yet but there was no example and comparison of the politeness and to show regarded of Gharib Nawaz (R.A.). He produced a tremendous spiritual and social revolution in India. In such terrible atmosphere of touchable and untouchable the point of view of unity and oneness of Islam was being present in practice. For which discrimination of cast and creed along with Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) were present to hear the message of humanity but except them somebody was also present who accepted "Islam" and some body also used to sit who did not accept "Islam" yet among them "Hindu Pandit's" were also present. One day among those "Hinu Pandit", one pandit did not come. So Sarkar Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) asked his disciple (attendant) Khwaja Fakhruddin Gurdezi (R.A.) about his absence and came to know that the young son of that Pandit died. Them Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) gave order to fetch the Pandit to him. As per his order to fetch the Pandit to him. As per his order attendant conveyed the message of Khwaja Sb. (R.A.) to that Pandit and told him that "Khwaja Baba Called on you" The pandit said, I am in such trouble and critical moment. What I am to do?

Conversion of Shadi Deo to Islam

Conversion of Shadi Deo to Islam


Shadi Deo was the Supremo of all the temples in Ajmer. He lived in Jadu Shadi Mandir and was a great learned man of Hinduism. He had a great influence on all the Hindus. When he saw poor attendance in the temples, he got furious but was very much worried also. On the other hand,, the priests of temples also made him opposed to Khwaja Sahib (R.A.). Thus Shadi Deo along with colleagues and followers came to face Khwaja Sahib. Their intentions were bad and they wanted to harm him. But Khwaja Sahib's one look changed their hearts and Shadi Deo fell on his feet and repented. He accepted Islam. He was named as Saad. Most of his fellow-beings also repented and accepted Islam. The entire episode gave a jolt to the city and it made Prithviraj worried much.

   
Ajay Pal Jogi accepts Islam

Ajay Pal Jogi accepts Islam

     With the 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 it.
Ajay Pal and his disciples threw magic-pythons which rushed to the Khwaja Sahib but burnt and changed into ashes reaching the circle. When failed in their intentions, the magicians showered fire on them. It not only proved ineffective to the target but bounced back to the magicians and burnt them. When all the enchantment were a failure. Ajay Pal decided to attack them from the sky. So he flew towards the sky.

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.

    He admitted 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.
     Later, Ajay Pal requested Khwaja Gharib Nawaz to enlighten him about his Madarij-e-Aala. Khwaja Sahib (R.A.) smiled and asked Ajay Pal to close the eyes. As he closed his eyes, he saw, Aalam-e-Barzakh, Bam-e-Aflaak and even Arsh-e-Aazam. When he had seen all these, Khwaja Sahib asked him to open the eyes. Ajay Pal opened his eyes and fell on the feet of Khwaja Sahib (R.A.). Then Khwaja Sahib was kind enough to help him in achieving the status of Aulia-e-Kamileen. Then he made another request of having eternal life Khwaja Sahib prayed to God to grant Ajay Pal (Abdullah) eternal life. The prayer was granted. Now it is said that Abdullah is alive (Amar) and guides the people who forget their way.

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.

Offer of Islam to Prithviraj

Offer of Islam to Prithviraj


After accepting Islam by Shadi Deo and Ajay Pal jogi, Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) sent a message to Rai Pithora (Prithviraj).
"Accept Islam as it is in your interest. Not only you will retain your kingdom but the Almighty will be pleased with you. Otherwise, you will have to face a lot of miseries not only in this world but after the death too. And at that time, you would have no way out."
But Rai Pithora was very adamant and was not convinced. On the contrary, he became outrageous. To test Gharib Nawaz, he sent a man to become the follower.

When he reached him, Khwaja Sahib refused to accept him as his disciple. When asked, he gave three reasons for the refusal.
"First, hatred and malice are deep rested in your heart. Second, you follow polytheism and bow your head to everything except Allah, and Third (lastly), as I have seen in Lauh-e-Mahfooz, you will die in polytheism." The man was very surprised when heard Khwaja Sahib.
The tension between Khwaja Sahib and Prithviraj was on the rise. When he failed in all his tricks, he started atrocities on Muslims. Under the action, one of his courtier, who accepted Islam and became the disciple (Mureed) of Khwaja Sahib (R.A.) was severely tortured. So, the Mureed requested Khwaja Sahib to influence the king so that he could be saved. Since Khwaja had a great love and affections for his disciples so he asked the king to refrain himself from committing brutalities. But the king did not heed to the advice and issued an order to Khwaja Sahib saying that being the master and the king of the land, it was his order to leave Ajmer with all the disciples otherwise all will be expelled forcibly.

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

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.


Ghauri on Expedition to India

 

Ghauri on Expedition to India,
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. Since he wanted to defeat Prithvi Rah, he was preparing for a war secretly. But he was not expected to go for a battle against India even after such a short span of time.
The dream created great enthusiasm in his heart and after prediction by the learned scholars he inspected the preparations and ordered his army to proceed on the expedition. On the eight day, he himself proceeded on the crusade. The army officers were very much surprised over the rush for the expedition. But nobody dared to enquire about it.
When the army camped in Peshawar, an old man of royal family asked, "O king, though the preparations are on large scale, but the intention is still a secret ?"
The king took a deep breath and said, "You don't know, what happened to me. Can not you recall last year's defeat which is a blot on the face of Islam. Be sure that neither I have changed my clothes nor I have taken rest on the bed."
Hearing the king, the old man encouraged Shahabuddin Ghauri, prayed for his victory and said, "If your lordship has the intention then act according to the need of the hour. Kindly call the Emirs and Chiefs to your court, grant them pardon and honor them, so that they could fight for you and may sacrifice their lives for you and wash the earlier defeat. The king liked the idea. So after reaching Multan, he called the court and granted a general pardon to all the Emirs and Chiefs. Then he addressed them :
"O Muslims, everyone is fully aware of the blot on the face of Islam due to last year's defeat. So it is the duty of every Muslim to wash it with his sword." Every Chief sworn to fight till the last breath for the cause after putting their hands on the swords.


Sultan's Message to Rai Pithora

Sultan's Message to Rai Pithora


From Multan, the king Ghauri reached Lahore and sent Qaum-ul-Mulk Ruknuddin who was a prominent statesman and orater, to king  Prithvi Raj as his emissary. In his message, the king said:
"By order of my elder brother who is the king of Muslims in the region spread from Punjab to Khurasan, I have come to invade India. So Rai Pithora who is the emperor of the kings in India is asked to accept Islam, thus saving the country from bloodshed otherwise get ready for war."
But Prithvi Raj did not take the message seriously and a bitter reply was sent as he was very much confident of his power, bravery and Rajput fighters and ultimately he was sure of his victory. He immediately started the war preparations and also sent a word to all the subordinate kings. In a very short time, an army of about three lacks Rajputs gathered around him.
Both the armies marched towards each other and camped on the banks of Saraswati river. In the meantime, king Shahabuddin received the reply from Rai Pithora which read :
"The Chief of Islam through his spies would have known that a huge army is around me to protect our religion and still more armies are expected to pour in from every corner of India. And each and every Rajput of the army has un exemplary courage and war skill and nobody even in Kabul and Qandhar can face them. It would be better if you have sympathy for Turk and Afghan youths, then take a U-turn and go back, as it will be better for you. Otherwise you know we possess a lot of weapons and other relative materials in large quantity as well as more than three thousands war elephants are also with us. It is better to follow my advice otherwise you won't be able to take back even a single soldier alive." This made Ghauri very disappointed. He was fully aware of large quantity of enemy's army. So he adopted a war strategy and replied:" Thanks for your valuable and kind advice but you know that I have come for invasion by the order of my elder brother, so I have to wait for his further orders. Kindly give me some time for the next move." When Rai Pithora received the weak reply, he became very happy and they started celebrations.

 


A decisive war

A decisive war ,


Shahabuddin took the advantage of the opportunity and he ordered for war in the evening, left the army camp as it was and after taking a long round of many miles crossed the river in the darkness of the night, and caught the enemy unaware. the emperor did not loose his senses and faced the attack with a part of his army. Later the rest of his army also joined him.
Rai Pithora's army was comprised of three thousand elephants, three lacks cavalry and a large number of swordsmen, while king Shahabuddin had an army of one lack twenty thousand soldiers. Since Rai Pithora was very sure about his victory, so he did not bother for an organized fight and ordered the entire army to

charge against the enemy. On the 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.
It was a fierce fight and time was noon. Raja Prithvi Raj came out of the army and stayed under the shadow of a tree with his participating 150 kings. A final attack was decided. Everyone took an oath and came into Warfield. Raja's army was tired as it was fighting since morning. The Sultan sensed the opportunity. He launched a very strong attack with his fresh 12,000 swordsmen who all of a sudden reached in the heart of enemy's army. When the other Chiefs of king's army saw the scene, they also pressed the enemy from left and right. In a moment, thousands of Rajputs were killed. The enemy's army overturned. Meanwhile the elephants, back bone of Raja's army took a U-turn and crushed their own men. Rajputs tried their best of face the position but in vain. Gharib Nawaz's words were to be proved true, and they were.
It was to be dusk when the Sultan's army dominated the enemies. A number of Raja's including Khande Rao were killed while some other's escaped. Rai Pithora also wanted to escape but was captured and slashed on the banks of Saraswati river.
In the end, Shahabuddin Ghauri was victorious and the hold of Muslims on northern India became stronger. Later the Rajput's kingdoms like Saraswati, Samana, Kohram and Hansi were captured without any difficulty. Then Sultan proceeded to Ajmer. Nobody challenged him but the son's of defeated and slain Rajas welcomed him and accepted him as their Lord. After reaching Ajmer, he handed over the reigns of the kingdom to Prithvi Raj's son, Kola who took the oath of loyalty.


Shahabuddin at the feet of Khwaja Sahib

 

Shahabuddin at the feet of Khwaja Sahib Ajmersharif.


The evening was falling when Shahabuddin entered Ajmer. He heard Azan which made him surprised. On enquiring, people told him that some faqir's who had arrived a short time ago, they call like this five times daily. The king took the direction. The Jamaat for prayers was ready. He joined it. Gharib Nawaz was leading the Namaz. As and when the prayers were over, and the king saw Khwaja Sahib (R.A.), he was very much surprised, since he recognized the man who predicted his victory in the dream. He wanted to fall flat on the feet of Gharib Nawaz but the Khwaja embraced the king instead. The king sobbed and wept for quite a long time. Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) blessed him and asked him to sit. When he regained, he made a request for Bayt. Gharib Nawaz accepted the request and made him a disciple.
After staying in Ajmer for few days, Sultan Shahabuddin Muhammed Ghauri marched towards Delhi and captured it. He appointed his faithful slave Qutubuddin Ebak, Viceroy of India and went back to Ghazni. Qutubuddin captured rest of India in a very short span of time and soon the Muslims got hold of the entire North India. 
A Raja Hari Raj removed the son of Prithvi Raj from Ajmer. He prayed to Qutubuddin who defeated the Raja Hari Raj, killed him and made Kola,Raja of Ajmer again. But this time Syed Hussain Sahib (R.A.) a very religious person accompanied Kola. Syed Sahib (R.A.) was very God-fearing and had a great faith in Gharib Nawaz. Now he spent most of his time in the company of Khwaja Sahib. He played a prominent role in preaching of Islam.

Marriages and Children

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 :

   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.

Kadka (Finale) Kadka

 

 

      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.
