Flickr Shooting Possession Occult Dua Tawiz ,,At Dargahs Of India
Tags: occult   dargah   hajimalang   duatawiz   shootingpossession   dammadarmalangs   

Knowledge of the supernatural is known as Ilm and holistic healing by the bawas or the malangs is done by dua tawiz what you call exorcism.

Every Dargah has its own method rituals , but the one that a lot of people head when their relative is taken over by such malady is Dargah of Syed Mira Datar Unjha ..I was there only for a few hours and documented some areas thanks to Khadim Saab Samad Miya , who was very helpful understanding and this part of healing exorcising is part of their ancestral family tradition..

Peersaab Fakhru Miya of Hujra No6 is an expert in this field at Ajmer Sharif , he does it on a paper which is burnt with the effigy of the devil and he reads the smoke and prescribes tawiz.

My Peer Syed Masoom Ali Madari Asqan , Dam Madar head is also very competent experienced in this field and has saved a lot of people from such maladies .. so also my Peer bhai Syed Rafiq Bawa Dam Madar Malang ,, both are held in the highest esteem in India malang circles.

The Naga Sadhus too have their tantric methods and in this regard I met Shee Kapoor Khamakhya at Allahabad Maha Kumbh , he is based in Hardwar and is a renowned Shaman and Exorcist ..devotee of Goddess Khamakhya of Khamakhya Temple Assam ,

My Naga Guru Shri Vijay Gri of Juna Akhada delves in Tantra too ,,

But there are a lot of people who play on the gullibility of the poor and the rich rake in fast bucks ..and give Occult a bad name ..

I am grateful to Hon Mr Nasim Khan Minister of Maharashtra for Textiles and Minorities who kept the Shia self infliction in the Memory of Imam Hussain during Moharam out of the ambit of the Anti - Superstition bill mentioned in the papers today..

Flickr Dargah Hazrat Abbas Lucknow
Tags: shiasm   dargahhazratabbasalamdarlucknow   maulanashowzabjarvali   


Situated in Rustam Nagar in the old city, Dargah Hazrat Abbas is the oldest shrine of the Shia Muslims in Lucknow.
In Iraq, on 10th of Muharrum 61 Hijri (680), when Imam Hussain was forced to camp on the banks of river Eupharates (Faraat) at Karbala, there was not a drop of water in the encampment as the enemy (Yazid's army) had banned the fetching of water from the river since 7th of Muharrum. Hazrat Abbas, the step-brother of Imam Hussain, sought the Imam's permission to fetch water for the thirsty children in their camp. To restrain Abbas from provocation, he was asked to take the alam [a standard with a metal crest crowning the flag] in one hand and the mashkeeza (camel-leather water-bag) in the other. He was thus left with no defence when attacked by the enemy. His mashkeeza was pierced with arrows and his hands were chopped off as he tried to reach the water to the camp. For Shias, the martyrdom of Hazrat Abbas has special significance.
The dargah (shrine) of Hazrat Abbas came into existence during the reign of Nawab Asaf-ud-Daulah (1775-1797). A poor man, Mirza Faqeera Beg, was visited by Hazrat Abbas in his dream and directed to dig out his alam from a specific location in the city. Faqeera went to the site the next morning and discovered a large bronze alam in the shape of a hand (five fingers and a palm). He placed it reverently in his house in Rustam Nagar. Soon the news of the miraculous discovery spread and people started visiting his place with offerings and prayers for the fulfilment of their wishes. Nawab Asaf-ud-Daulah also visited the place and ordered that a dome be erected over the place, in order to convert it to a dargah (shrine).


People from different localities began assembling in the dargah with alams on 7,h of Muharrum [a day which is particularly specified by Shias for honouring Hazrat Abbas]. Later on, the first Thursday after the sighting of moon, called the Nauchandi Jummeraatwas considered auspicious for visiting the shrine and a large number of devotees crowded the dargah on this day. When Asaf-ud Daulah's step-brother Nawab Saadat Ali Khan, was unexpectedly made the ruler of Awadh by the British, after the deportation of the former's son Wazir Ali in January 1798, after a short term of just four months, Saadat Ali Khan got the dome of the dargah gilded in gold. He also built two separate enclosures for male and female visitors to the shrine.
His son, Ghazi-ud-din Haider, who was crowned the first King of Awadh in October 1819, provided a Naubat Khana for the entrance to the dargah in the form of a double storeyed gateway. Naqqara (large drums) were sounded from the gallery on the upper storey of this gateway to inform the hour of the day as well as for ceremoniously greeting members and guests of the royal household on their visit to the shrine. The King also provided the inner sanctum of the shrine where the iconic alam was preserved, with silver foiled doors. He made the further provision of a mimbar (pulpit) fashioned in silver.
Malka Zamani, the favourite queen of Naseer-ud-Din Haider, the second King of Awadh (1827-1837), set up a kitchen at the shrine for free distribution of food to the poor. She visited the dargah on every nauchandi jummeraat with an offering of ten thousand rupees. People on the streets waited eagerly to have a glimpse of her entourage, a procession consisting of a hundred elephants with silver howdah (mounted seat) and gold embellishments. It had a number of palanquins and oxen driven carriages for the accompanying ladies. The queen sat in a large sukhpal (decorated carriage) covered with a brocade silk canopy.


The dargah is also linked with the first Indian war of Independence. In 1858 it became the headquarters of the native sepoys and soldiers in the city who were in rebellion against the British. A leader of the freedom struggle in 1857-58 and one of the chief commanders of Begum Hazrat Mahal's forces, Shah Ahmadullah camped here before leaving for Bareilly. Captured by deceit through the Raja of Pawaian (a State near Shahjahanpur), he was killed in front of the fort at Pawaian by the Raja's brother who was rewarded by the British.
After the rebellion failed, British soldiers plundered Nawabi buildings and the dargah too was not spared. The gold in the dome and alam was removed by the plunderers. Much of the decorative valuables placed in the shrine were taken away and auctioned by the British along with the valuables of Wajid Ali Shah.

Flickr Dargah Of Makhdoom Shah Baba Mahim
Tags: sufism   rafaees   malangs   makhdhoomshahbabaurus2012   makhdhoomshahbabadargah   
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Makhdoom Ali Mahimi (1372–1431) was a Muslim Scholar originating from the Konkan in India, widely[vague] acknowledged for his scholarly treatises, liberal views and humanist ideals. Mahimi was born into a family of Arab travelers from Iraq who had settled down on the island of Mahim, one of the seven islands that later formed the city of Bombay (now Mumbai).
Not much is known of his early childhood. He later became the disciple of Mohiuddin Ibne Arabi, a Spanish Muslim saint. Mahimi's reputation grew after the Sultan of Gujarat, Ahmed Shah of the Muzaffarid dynasty, chose him to be the town's Qazi (the Head Muslim Judge/cleric of a town).
Mahimi was the first Indian scholar to write an exegesis on the Qur'an, which gained critical acclimation from numerous Islamic scholars including Shah Waliullah. Authoring a total of nineteen books, he was given the moniker Qutb-e -Kokan (Kokan's Pole Star). His commentary (tafseer) of the Nobel Quran in Arabic "Tayseer Al-Quran" is available in Al Azhar University, Cairo and Ummul-Qura University, Makkah.
Mahimi is revered by both the Muslims and Hindus, all Muslim sects hold him in high esteem. After his death in 1431, he was buried in Mahim. The site later became a dargah (shrine) for devotees.

During the annual ten day Urs festival celebrated on the 13th day of Shawwal as per the Muslim calendar, millions of devotees visit his dargah.
The highlight of this is a procession of around eight thousand begins at the Mahim Police Station, believed to be the site of his residence. Two police officers from each of the eighty four city police stations represent the police whose association with the saint dates back to the saint's era. A representative of the Mumbai police who is the first to offer the "chaddar" (shawl) at the tomb on the first day of the festival. Legend has it that it was a police constable who gave water to the dying saint from his cap. Another story points to some miraculous assistance police officers once received from an old man, whom they believed was the saint, in fighting smugglers.
A room adjacent to the office of the senior inspector of police station contains a steel cupboard that houses the saint's preserved belongings such as his chair, a pair of sandals and his hand-written Qur'an which is considered to be a calligraphic work of art. The room is opened once every year to the public. In 1920 the cupboard was purchased by a senior British police inspector, Raymond Esquire as a tribute to the saint he revered.
On 2005-05-21, the government of Maharashtra named the JJ Flyover after the saint as a tribute to the saint. The 2.1 kilometre flyover is the longest viaduct in the country.
[edit]Name And Lineage


Dargah Sharif on 11/23/2011
His name is Ali as well as Alauddin. His surname is Abul Hasan and the title is Zainuddin. The tribes of Nawait families were connected to the ‘Paro’ and the same that is ‘Paro’ was his family title. Being well versed in theology he was called Faquih and being a place of refuge to all and a competent authority he was called Makhdum.He was considered to be one of the saints. So, he was called, Shaikh’.
His respectable father’s name is Maulana Shaikh Ahmad who was a learned man of high grade and he was a genuine saint. He was considered to be one of the wealthy traders of Kokan.
His honourable mother’s name is Hazrat Fatima Bint (Daughter of) Nakhuda Husain Ankolia. It is said of his maternal grandfather that he was king of the traders. His venerable mother was a pious devout, an abstinent and she was very religious-minded and god-fearing. She was a saintly woman.
1) He is Makhdum Ali Bin Ahmad and known as Ibn (son) of Bint (daughter of) Husain Nakuda Ankolia. This statement (opinion) has been adapted from a book namely Khatib Kalyani in an Arabic magazine Zamirul Insaan.
2) He is Ali Bin Hasan Bin Ibrahim Bin Ismail, the writer of ilhamur Rehman and Compiler of Tafsirur Rehman Bin Muhammad Bin Ahmad entitled Kodar. This opinion was found written at the end of ‘Shumailul Atqiya by the writer of this magazine. This book Shumail’, as per the writer of the magazine was written in his own handwriting by Hazrat Makhdum Ali Faquih Mahaimi. He writes, also that, the scholars of our times were fully sure that the second statement had been written by Hazrat Makhdum Ali Faquih Mahaimi himself at the end of the’ Shumail’.
Maulawi Late Muhammad Yusuf Khatkhate. referring to a passage of the handwritten book Tabsirur Rehman, has written that in this book as described, of Hazrat Makhdurn Ali, is Alauddin and as a matter of fact our forefathers and parents are related to Ali Paro Bin Ahmad Paro Bin Ali Paro Bin Ahmad Paro and as well as, ibn bint (D/O) Husain Nakhuda Ankolia . And probably it is the right one.
This hand-written copy of the book was copied down 133 years after the death of Hazrat Makhdum Ali Faquih Mahaimi any way, Hazrat Makhdum Ali was a son and descendant of a gentle and respectable family. And his predecessors were originally Arabs that is Naiti. In an ancient book. It is written that (Hazrat Makhdum Ali Maulana Shaikh Ahmad Mahaimi comes of a Nawait Clan. This word is on the metre (weight) of Thawabit. A certain community lived in the cities and towns of Southern India (The Deccan). Their description is available in the Persian books. An ancient written, Tabri has written in his historical book that Naita is a tribe of ‘Quraish who had fled from Madina Munawwara due to the fear of Hajjaj Bin Yusuf (who had killed five thousand scholars and saintly people without any pretext). And these people got down near about the mouth of the Indus River. and they made that territory their living place.[1]
[edit]The Originality Of Nawayat

The word of Nawayat can be written with its last letters as ‘to’e’ or ‘te’ The ancient historians and the writers of biographies used to write it with both the letters.
Nawayat is a community of the tribe, Quraish, who is related to Muhammad through Nazr Bin Kanana. These were the residents of Madina Munawwara. They migrated to India during the period of Hajjaj bin Yusuf and they got down on the coast of the Indian Ocean.
[edit]Arrival Of Nawayat In India

Having got fed up with the cruelties and tyrannies of Hajjaj Bin Yusuf. the first caravan of Muslim Arab Migrators took shelter in India on 8th Hijri that is in the year 699 A.D. There were, in this caravan, some Arab migrators of the village of Basra., which was called Nayat. Their family tree is connected to the tribe of Quraish through the family of Banu Nazar.
Against the courageous steps of Abdulla Bin Zubair Radi Allahu anhu, Abdul Malik Bin Marwan encouraged and incited Hajjaj Bin Yususf to killings, plunder and blood-shed. He made many a people of Banu Hashim prisoners and made them to suffer great hardships. Some of these people went to North Africa and Spain and one of the caravans of the migrators got down around the islands of Bombay. They got down at Sopara, Thana, Semore (Chambur). a seaport at that time.
In the Bombay Gazette, it has been written about Hazrat Makhdum Ali Faquih Mahaimi that: “This sufi (saint) was of Arab origin. His fore-fathers came to Mahim in the year 860 A.D. i.e. 252 H. as they were not able to stand against the tyrannies and cruelties of Hajjaj Bin Yusuf And after about five hundred years later Hazrat Makhdum Ali Faquih Mahaimi was born.
[edit]Education And Training

His honourable father Maulana Hazrat Shaikh Ahmad Sahib was learned, great scholar and saintly man. He lived in Kokan from the very beginning. He was of Arab origin *and comes of the descendants of Hazrat Jafar Tayyar Radi allahu anhu Bin Hazrat Abi Talib Radi Allahu anhu . His mausoleum is situated in Amman (the capital of .Jordan) in the city of Moutha. The city of Mautah is situated at the distance of 112 Km. from Amman.
His honourable father, having observed his smart son’s cleverness and liking for knowledge and learning, paid his attention to his higher education. And, as he, too, was a great scholar of Arabic language.
[2]
He, therefore. helped his son Hazrat Makhdum Ali Mahaimi to become. a scholar. In his childhood. under the training of his father, Maulana Shaikh Ahmed rehmatullahi Bin Ali, Hazrat Makhdum Ali Mahaimi acquired full fledged knowledge of recitation of’ the Qura’n with correct phonetics. theology, logic, philosophy, Hadith and all other extra-religious fields of knowledge and traditionlally reported sciences etcetera.
The gracious mother of Hazrat Makhdum, Hazrat Bibi Fatima, too, was a perfect saintly woman. The gracious parents of Hazrat Makhdum through their training. polished and illuminated the God-gifted talents of their son. And by the favour and bounty of Allah, He became a writer of Quranic exegesis of high quality, a scholar of Muhammad's traditions, a theologian and a saint (Sufi), excellent and well versed in revelation and miracles. It is widely known that Hazrat Khizr Alaih salaam, also, took a greater part in his training.
When Hazrat Makhdum was barely of nine years age. completed all the branches of knowledge. external as well as celestial and the Islamic Jurisprudence. Thereafter, only a few days had passed when, on the 25th of Jamadil Akhir 785 Hijri, his father Maulana Shaikh died.
In some other book, the year of the expiry of Maulana Shaikh Ahmad Bin Ali is given as 788 Hijri.)
Hazrat Makhdum’s revered father Maulana Shaikh Ahmad Bin Ali; who rose from the land of Kalyan, was buried in the very place of land. The grave of Hazrat Makhdum Ali’s father is situated in the locality of Kalyan, namely Bombal Bazar*. Near Namak Bander (salt port) of Kalyan, there is an old graveyard and in it is situated a pucca Mausoleum, a shrine. of Maulana Shaikh Ahmad Ali which was built on 5th Rabiul Awwal, 1313 Hijri.
His mausoleum is situated adjacent to the Bahir Kot (fort) Masjid (Mosque) and to the other side, there is the mausoleum of Hazrat Nizamuddin Khamosh.
Bombal Bazar, - Ghas Bazar :. On this very same date, the fair (Urs) is celebrated every year regularly.
Some local poet has said two stanzas of poetry in Urdu depicting the date of his expiry. These are in Urdu and the poet is Rashid. They are inscribed on two marble plaques. One of them is inside the mausoleum while the other one is outside it.
The inside plaque bears these lines:
Janab-e- Shaikh Ahmad Wasil-e-Haq
Jahan se jab huye jannat ko rukhsat
Lisan-e-gaib-e- Rashid ne bataya
Makeenul Khuld un ka sal-e- rukhsat
(788 H.)
When Hazrat Makhdum Ali became orphan due to the expiry of his father, his thirst for knowledge and learning went on increasing. There was no source to quench this thirst. hence he came to his respected mother and said, Dear Mother My longing for knowledge is going on increasing. Here, I don’t find any source to satisfy my desire and longing for it. If you give me permission then. I would set out in search of the knowledge. The respected mother looked at the son for some time and then said.’ My son! your separation is unbearable to me. Allah, The Highest, is The Causer of the Causes. He, being the real doer of things, will make such a provision from unknown that it will be the source of satisfaction to your longing. The knowledge that is obtained through the divine favour is better than that acquired by any method of teaching and learning.
So. the very night. his respectable mother prayed to Allah and her prayers were answered positively by Allah. As usual, after the early morning prayer was over, Hazrat Makhdum Ali, went for a walk to the sea-side. While he was strolling on the coast of the sea, he saw a radiant faced elderly person sitting on a rock which was lying on the coast of the sea. He conveyed his salam (the best wishes) to him. The elderly man returned his salams to Hazrat Makhdum Ali and showed his pleasure smilingly. Then, he said, ‘ You are longing for acquiring divine knowledge, then you come here to me daily every morning and I will teach you. The things you wish to obtain through journeys to distant places, Insha Allah (If Allah so wishes), you will get the same here and here. I am the Khizr Alaih salaam. Allah, The highest, has sent me to teach you. Don’t divulge this secret to anybody.
So, he would go to that place where Khizr Alaih salam used to be sitting. It was his routine to do so every morning after the early morning (fajr) prayers were over. He was regular in this . And, thus, he started to acquire godly knowledge from Hazrat Khizr Alaih Salaam In a few days, he was perfect in both the types of knowledge, intellectual as well as additional. One day, by chance, his respectable mother made an enquiry with him. saying. “My son! To whom do you go to obtain knowledge daily? I have heard that you go to the sea-shore every day” . At first, he hesitated to give reply to his mother’s enquiry. But, feeling that it would be against the manner, he said, I go to Hazrat Khizr Alaih Salaam to learn from him.”
The next day, when, as usual, he went to the sea-shore, he found that Hazrat Khizr Alaih Salaam was not there. He regretted much and become very sorrowful and came to his mother. Hazrat Makhdum, with tears in his eyes said to his mother, ‘Dear Mother ! I had, against the instruction and warning of Hazrat Khizr Alaih Salaam, mentioned you the secret of his teaching. And, I think, most probably, being angry with me, he did not turn up today.” The glorious mother, again, consoled him and said, “Don’t be disapponted. Allah, The Highest, is The Most Powerful. He will send, again, Hazrat Khizr Alaih Salaam for the sake of you. “ The glorious mother prayed to Allah, that very night. Consequently, the next day, at the time of the prayers of Asr, Hazrat Khizr Alaih Salaam met him on the way and said, “ You have got the inspired- knowledge by the order of Allah.” Then he took him to the sea-shore and having taken out a morsel of godly bounty from his own mouth, fed it to him and said “Your glorious mother’s prayers are always answered positively and you have achieved mastery over all the branches of knowledge by the favour of Allah.” When he was free from the evening prayers, he found his pure and clean bosom overloaded with all the branches of the knowledge.
[edit]Habits And Good Qualities

The real essence of life is the beauty of character. It is only the good character that has made the memory of the noble men perpetual and has strengthened their description Sayyid Ibrahim Madni, in his hook, Magazine Zamirul Insan says, “ Hazrat Makhdum Sahib was very modest, good mannered, obedient and fond of service to his parents from his childhood. By chance, one night his mother, after her night prayers, was lying on the bed. She felt thirsty. So, she asked Makhdum Ali to fetch her water. He return with the water but he saw that his mother was fast asleep. He thought that to awake her from the sleep would be against the good manners. So, he stood beside her with the glass of water in his hand for the whole night.
At last, it was early morning when his mother woke up from sleep. She asked him,’My son, how long are you standing here with the water? ‘.He said, “ Since the time you went to sleep and you had asked for the water. And I am, since then standing here waiting for you to wake up”
The mother liked this good mannerly behaviour of her son to such an extent that her happiness knew no bounds. She got up from the bed immediately, performed ablution and prayed to Allah for the betterment of her son. It was the effect of these prayers of his mother that due to it Makhdum Sahib very soon attained the perfection in both the types of sciences of knowledge, apparent as well as latent.
While describing the noble character of Hazrat Makhdum Ali Faquih Mahaimi some of the people have written that he was very much generous and libral. He used to help the needy open-heartedly. Even though he was the son of a wealthy father, he never gave importance to the worldly ‘wealth and riches.There was a crowd of guests at his house all the time. On his table cloth various kinds of tasty foods were served and he felt happy to feed the guests to their satisfaction. It is said that he liked fish very much. All the Muslims and the Hindus, both were attracted by his pleasing character and good behaviour.
[edit]Devotion And Mystic Exercise

Hazrat Makhdum Ali was a genuine abstinent, devotee, master of the knowledge of all the branches of sciences in respect of Islamic Jurisprudence and intimate knowledge of God and measure” and regulations, both apparent and the latent. He had reached to the zenith in the intellectual sciences and conventional as well. He had the best qualities and pleasing habits and excellent characteristics. He performed extra-ordinay feats.
Sufi (Saintly person) Shaikh Abdul Wahab Muttaqui Shazli Qadiri, describes, in his book, a strange event concerning Hazrat Makhdum Ali
“ The author of ‘ Tafsir-e-Rehmani Hazrat Shaikh Ali Mahaimi was overwhelmed with the effect of meditation and absorption. The ruling king’s sister was in matrimonial relation with him. One day, the king’s wives and their lady companions came to see the king’s sister at the Shaikh’s house. Shaikh, at that time, was sitting at the door of the house. The ladies hesitated to come in. Shaikh’s mother was present there. She said to them, ‘Why are you hesitant? Come on. What is the hesitation and reluctance for at all?’ They said that they were reluctant to come in because Shaikh was sitting on the door sill and he would see them. Shaikh’s mother said that it was not possible because he was in the unconscious state. He had no sense of any thing, neither theirs nor of this world and the hereafter as well. No sooner they heard this, all of them came in . Then they insisted on its proof. Thereupon, Shaikh’s mother came to him and said to him,’ My son take this wrapper and wear this on and give your dress for washing. At that shaikh was putting on clean clothes. He, immediately, put off his clothes and put on the wrapper. And, again he sat down. After an hour, his mother brought him other dirty clothes and asked him to take off his clothes. Shaikh took the same dirty clothes and put them on. He had no sense as to which clothes he should put on and which to put off.”
In one of the magazine, he has said;
“In Yeman, there lived a learned man by name Imam Jamal Muhammad One of the servants brought to me a letter from him. and he stated: It is a fact that Sharfuddin the Yemani the teacher of Quran has not the understanding and discerning power to such extent than he may be able to comprehend the works of Shaikh Mohiuddin Ibn Arabi Even then he belittles Shaikh only because he, himself is incapable and inefficient and he is bent on infidelity to the Shaikh and the followers of him.
Having heard this awkward and malicious statement, a thought occurred to my mind that I must bring out what the truth is. And this thought didn’t allow me to sit at my house idle. Helplessly, I decided to make a journey and set out to Yeman. Having reached there, I forwarded the necessary arguments and gave perfect proofs and evidences. And, at last I succeeded in wiping out the dust of doubts and suspicion and cleansed the pollution of criticism and abuse from the beliefs of the teacher, Muallim.

[edit]Revelations And Miracles

Those elderly and saintly people who adopted the life style of their dear most Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam , in a very few days. they too start the experience of their being beloved and to this the promise is made by Allah in His Glorious book. The Qura’n that whosoever adopts the manners, the ways of life. the habits, the characteristics and the traditions of Muhammad, he will be under the care of Allah.
In the words of the Muhammad, it is as:
“Tell them, if you love Allah, do follow me. Then Allah will be mindful of you.”
Hazrat Makhdum Ali Mahairni was one of the chief Awilyas (The saints). Many a miracle are attributed to him. Hence, many a people have written books on his miracles with title of Karamat-e-Makhdum (The Miracles of Makhdum). Many of them are hearsays only and to establish their authenticity is difficult due to lack of documentary evidences Therefore. we. mention here only’ those of his miracles that are brought to light by the writer of the Magazine. ‘Zamirul insan’, Maulana Sayyid Ibrahim Madani and that too, with particular stress.
(1) It is natrated that Hazrat Makhdum Baba had reared a she-goat whom he loved immensely. Once when he had gone away on some business, the goat fell ill and ultimately died, His mother got the deid goat buried on the sea-shore. When he heard about the death of the goat, he became extremely sad and went to the sea-shore to see it. His maid-servant had followed him and he ordered her to go away. She got frightened and went away from that place, but hid herself at a little distance. After the departure of the servant he recited some prayer and he stood there for some time praying to Allah. The maid servant who was watching all this saw the legs of the animal moving. Afterwards, he held the ear of the goat and brought her back home. This was the first miraculous feat that he exhibited at the age of 10 and its report spread far and wide.
(2) This maid servant, since that day, made it a regular practice- to serve Hazrat Makhdum Baba Whenever she washed his clothes she would preserve the first wash of water and drank it This entitled her also to gain knowledge and miraculous powers by the Grace of Allah. One day a traveller came to the mosque in Mahim. Hazrat Makhdum Baba noticed him and sent food to him through this maid-servant. When the maid reached the mosque with the tray of food she found the traveller missing. Through her powers she traced the person to be praying in the Khana-e-Ka’aba. She reached Makka and served him and later returned to the mosque. Thus, his dependents and followers also performed miraculous feats.
(3) Once, as usual, the men of INSIGHT had assembled from far off place and a general meeting was organised. During the session, one of the pious men informed that there is a Lote tree in the land of Madina Munawwara whose fruit is very delicious and nice. On this Hazrat Makhdum Baba said, “This was the season of this fruit and requested him to get some of it from there. He replied in the affirmative and promised to present Hazrat Makhdum Baba that fruit, He himself was a perfect scholar and had mastered the special prayer (benediction) called “Tayyal Farasakh” which at once took him to Madina. When he reached the tree he saw that there was someone already up the tree. He decided not to climb up and requested the person upon the tree to shake one of the branches of the tree so that he may also pick up some fruits. The man on the tree plucked some fruits and dropped them on the ground and shook a branch as well. The sage picked up the fruit and returned to Mahim.
He presented the said fruit to Hazrat Makhdum Baba who ate some of it and appreciated its taste and then remarked that. the fruit was undoubtedly tasty but he had brought it without exerting any effort. On hearing this the said sage felt very much astonished and he thought that perhaps he was watched by Hazrat Makhdum Baba by his miraculous powers but the situation was completely different. Hazrat Makhdum Baba had personally reached there prior to him and had climbed the tree. The holy man also realised the same and begged pardon. He accepted the difference between them. Hazrat Makhdum Baba is the Qutb of Konkan (The Polar Star of Konkan). Afterwards, Hazrat Shaikh Makhdum Baba removed some fruits from his pocket and distributed them among the people assembled there. All of them ate and relished them.
(4) During the days of Hazrat Makhdum Baba, the marine traffic had commenced and the ship started navigating to and fro. In those days a Hindu trader despatched his merchandise aboard a ship but the ship did not return. Seven years passed by and he virtually forgot about that ship. But whenever any accident of such nature occurred, he mourned about his loss regretfully. He met many learned people, religious activists, astrologers and sorcerers to inquire about the fate of his ship. All of them told him that, that ship had sunk along with his merchandise and general cargo. A disciple of Hazrat Makhdum Baba was also sitting there and he inquired of this fellow whether he had ever approached his Shaikh and told him if he had not, he should accompany him there and then and he assured him that he would certainly get satisfactory information about his ship. The man agreed and they reached Hazrat Makhdum Baba and narrated the entire incident. Hazrat Makhdum Baba told him to sit down and close his eyes. He did as directed and then Hazrat Makhdum Baba told him to open his eyes and then prophesied that his ship laden with his cargo and merchandise. would arrive back on the sea-shore on that very day in the evening.
The trader returned home and he was puzzled as to how the said ship that was lost seven years ago would suddenly appear from no where and that too on that very day. He reached the sea-shore before the onset of evening. He was restless. He saw a ship approaching the coast before the sunset. After half an hour the ship arrived and (he trader was amazed as it was his own ship.
He was beyond himself with joy. He developed utter faith in the miraculous power of Hazrat Makhdum Baba. The next day. he, along with his family members. came to Hazrat Makhdum Baba and cheerfully and willingly embraced Islam.
(5) Hazrat Makhdum Baba was famous as a trustworthy person. A man came to him and said that he was going alone on a journey and did not want to take some of his gems and diamonds along with him lest they be robbed. He requested Hazrat Makhdum Baba to keep them in his trust and that he would take them back on his return. At that time, Hazrat Makhdum Baba was standing close to a well and he agreed to help that man. As soon as that man placed those diamonds on his blessed hand, he dropped them into the well. The man, puzzled and perplexed, enquired how he would retrieve them? Hazrat Makhdum Baba told him that he would get them back whenever he wanted. But he was a hasty man and demanded his diamonds. Hazrat Makhdum Baba put his hand in the well and brought out a fistful of gems and told him to pick up his diamonds from amongst them. The man was astonished, ashamed and repented upon his mistake. Ultimately. Hazrat Makhdum Baba himself picked up his particular gems and handed them over to him and threw the remaining diamonds back in the well.
(6) Hazrat Makhdum Baba was a very rich and well-to-do person. His dining table served a variety of delicious food. His guest house was always full with his guests who were treated very kindly and generously and served with excellent food.
Hazrat Makhdum Baba’s supernatural powers and piety gained much publicity and acclaim. Once in the assembly of pious men his position came under discussion. It was said that he was a very generous person and liked nice and sumptuous food. It was said that he was a turn of Insight and piety and held a high position in awliya (bloved of Allah). One of the attendants said that such combination cannot be found and that religious accomplishments and worldly preferences never went together because to him the (derwish) mendicants always cherished simple food. A heated discussion followed this statement but that man was not satisfied and he perferred to observe the situation himself. So he set out to meet Hazrat Makhdum personally. He came to Mahim and Hazrat Makhdum Baba lovingly lodged him in his guest house. At the meal-time, the dining-table was set and that day fish was served specially. The man found him the way he had heard about him. Hazrat Makhdum Baba was performing the duties of the host very graciously and requested the guest to do full justice to the food served. He had personally joined him in partaking food. He insisted that his guest should taste every item of the menu. Hazrat Makhdum Baba finished his food earlier than the guest. He dropped the bones of the fish in the wash-basin whilst washing his hands. When the guest completed his meal and washed his hands in the wash-basin, he found to his amazement that, instead of the bones, the fishes were swimming in the basin. He was astonished, his question received a very fitting answer. So he very earnestly and humbly asked for his forgiveness. Hazrat Makhdum showed his wisdom and affection. He excused him and said that he never intended to show any trace of pride or superiority but just wanted to prove that Allah is Al-mighty and shows His kindness to the one whom He likes.
(7) Since Mahim is situated on the sea-shore, the ships have been arriving there from different countries. Certain foreigners stayed there in rented houses for some period of time. Incidentally, a young, handsome and rich Arab trader reached there and he settled there for a couple of days. Perchance, he passed by the house of a girl and happened to see her. That very moment he fell in love with her and he expressed his feelings that he would like to marry the girl if she was unmarried. The people told him though the girl was unmarried she could not marry him because she had been engaged to the poor boy of Mahim.
The Arab trader said that the engagement could be broken and that he was prepared to bear the expenses.
Some people, that very day, approached the father of the girl who was already engaged with a (poor) boy. They misled the father and made him agreeable to break the engagement of his daughter and to get her married to the Arab trader.
In order to break the engagement, a meeting of the community was called. When this news reached the Arab trader, he felt extremely delighted. But that very news aggrieved and saddened that poor boy. There was none who could console him. Nonetheless, Allah had destined something else. When the boy reached the mosque the next morning for prayers, he was spotted by the Great Faqih, Hazrat Makhdum Ali and every thing had become clear to him. He called the boy aside and told him to be patient and thankful to Allah. He added that a truthful person always attained tranquility and peace of mind. He further said that he would personally attend the meeting of the community and would see as to what could be done for him and by what means.This kind and favourable attitude of Hazrat Makhdum Baba gladdened the boy and He busied himself with his daily routine. The meeting was held on the fixed time. Hazrat also reached there and was received very warmly by the people and was made the President of that meeting. The deliberations started and the problem of.the Arab trader was raised and the agenda of the break-up of the engagement with that boy on the basis of his poverty was discussed. At this point Hazrat explained that riches and poverty were not specially assigned to certain people and that, that distinction was meaningless. Someone, prone to tell lies, said that the boy had the habit of drinking. Then Hazrat inquired whether anybody had seen him drinking or in the state of inebriation. If not that would not be considered as evidence in which case that matter could be condoned. This situation silenced everybody arid then he delivered his judgement and that was that both the poor boy and the rich Arab trader should go on the pilgrimage of Hajj. And anyone of them who returned earlier than the other should be allowed to marry the girl. All the people unanimously agreed with this suggestion. The Arab trader was particularly happy since he owned a personal sailing ship which he could handle the way he wanted. He felt that his poor rival will go by some ship after paying the fare and would not be able to return early as per his desire.
Within next couple of days the Arab set sails for the pilgrimage. When the poor boy heard about his departure, he felt very depressed and conveycd the news to Hazrat who comforted him and told him not to worry as Allah would make all the arrangements.
In the meantime, the months of Shawal and Zilqad passed by and the moon of the month of Zilhajj made its appearance. The 8th of the said month came and none could see any arrangement being made for the departure of the boy and he was always being seen in Mahim. On the morning of the 9th when the Hajj was to be performed, the boy reached the mosque and Hazrat told him not to go anywhere after the prayers and should wait for him there only. He did as he was told and waited for Hazrat who ultimately came and proceeded with the boy towards the hoz of the masjid. Then they stood at the edge of the hoz and Hazrat told the boy close his eyes and not to open them till asked to do so. Then Hazrat held the hand of the boy and dived him into the hoz and after a few moments told the boy to open his eyes. When the boy opened his eyes, he found himself standing on the gate of the Khana-e-Ka’aba. Then Hazrat took out some money from his pocket and while giving it to the boy he said that he should purchase necessary provisions of the Hajj. He told him to meet the Arab trader who had lodged in a particular tent, that day. it-self. He was further told to meet Hazrat at that very spot after performing the Hajj and that he should keep the entire episode as well-guarded secret, The boy proceeded to do whatever he was asked to while thanking Allah. He was very happy as Allah had honoured him with the kindness of such an accomplished leader and monitor.
After wearing, Ihram he reached the plains of Arafat and searched the tent of the rich Arab trader and met him. Afterwards he performed the rites and rituals and other important duties pertaining to Hajj which he completed in two or three days and he reached Hateem on the 12th to meet Hazrat Makhdoom Baba. Hazrat Makhdum Baba again told him to close his eyes and after a short time they reached the masjid. Six months elapsed when the Arab trader returned to Mahim. The meeting of the community, as per the programme, was called again. Hazrat Makhdum Baba attended this meeting too. The Arab also came there. Hazrat Makhdum Baba asked him whether he had performed the Hajj on which he replied in the affirmative. He further asked him whether that boy had gone for Hajj and whether he had met the trader or whether he had seen him there. The trader replied that the boy had gone for Hajj and had met him in the plains of Arafat and that he had seen him performing the Hajj and all the relevant rites and rituals. Then Hazrat Makhdum Baba asked the traders whether that boy had returned to Mahirn earlier. They confirmed that he had certainly returned earlier. By the Grace of Allah this state of affairs consolidated the faith of the people that all that had happened was due to him and that it was his glance of favour that allowed the boy to win that contest. The Arab trader kept quiet and accepted his defeat. Finally that girl was married to that poor boy.
Apart from this, many other supernatural feats were exhibited by Hazrat Makhdum Baba.
Zauqui Shah Sahib writes as:
“He preferred a life of loneliness and obscurity for a considerable period of his life. But his knowledge and excellence, his extra ordinary feats, obvious as well as latent, his miracles and the supernatural events that were revealed by and through him, made the whole world attracted to him….”

Tags: india   saint   sufism   lucknow   uttarpradesh   dargah   barabanki   dewasharif   hazratwarisalishah   
The mausoleum of Haji Waris Ali Shah is a monument of communal amity, constructed on a pattern, blending the Hindu-Iranian styles of architecture. The tomb, the shrines and the latticed outer apartment girdling the inner shrine for 'Parikrama' (Tawaf) are indicative of the Hindu style of architecture while the towers and minarets present the Persian architecture.
Haji Waris Ali Shah (Urdu: حاجی وارث علی شاہ, Hindi: हाजी वारिस अली शाह) or Sarkar Waris Pak (Urdu: سرکار وارث پاک, Hindi: सरकार वारिस पाक) was a Sufi saint from Dewa, Barabanki, India. Sarkar Waris Pak was the successor to the Qadriyya -Razzakiyya Silsila. He was born in the 26th generation of Hazrat Imam Hussain. The date of his birth is disputed, varying from 1233 A.H. to 1238 A.H. In Maarif Warisya, the date of his birth is written as 1234 A.H. corresponding to 1809 of the Christian era[citation needed]. His father, Syed Qurban Ali Shah, belonged to a landlord class and completed his education in Baghdad.
Waris Ali Shah died on April 7, 1905, after a brief illness. He was buried at the spot where he died, and this place is marked by a monument erected in his memory by some of his devoted followers. -Wikipedia

Shaikh Salim Chishti was a highly revered Sufi saint, who was said to perform miracles. Wishes granted by the saint would always come true, and till today, the faithful come to his tomb in large numbers, making a wish and tying a string to one of lattice jalis on the side of his tomb.

Emperor Akbar was deeply influenced and moved by saint Salim Chishti. His Dargah (tomb) is in the centre of the mosque complex at Fatehpur Sikri.

The tomb of Salim Chishti is cited as one of the finest examples of Mughal art and architecture. It is constructed out of white marble, with exquisite lattice windows (jali) on all sides.

The jalis are very intricately carved. Most of these jalis are made from a single piece of stone. The jalis act like one way screens. From the inside, it is very easy to see what is going on outside, because of the fine lattice work. However, from the outside, it is not possible to see what is going on inside because the white marble appears brighter than the dimly illuminated interior. Our eyes cannot read the exposure correctly, just like a camera, and therefore cannot make out details on the interior.

These pictures are a part of our journey through Northern Rajasthan and Agra. Sit back and view my Agra slideshow.

From my last trip to mumbai.

The Haji Ali Dargah (Urdu: حاجی علی درگاہ , Marathi: हाजी अली दर्गा, Hindi: हाजी अली दरगाह, Gujarati: હાજી અલી દરગાહ) is a mosque and dargah (tomb) located on an islet[dubious – discuss] off the coast of Worli in the Southern part of Mumbai. Near the heart of the city proper, the dargah is one of the most recognisable landmarks of Mumbai.
An exquisite example of Indian Islamic architecture, associated with legends about doomed lovers, the dargah contains the tomb of Sayed Peer Haji Ali Shah Bukhari.

Ooh.. what a hectic day it was. we reached Hazi ali dargah at 12.30 Noon but we were told that because of the high tide we can't go inside and we had to wait for 3 hours to get in :(.. Even when we get chance to get in, it was a difficult scene.. Too much rush because of delay in entry. Inside the dargah there was not enough space to keep your one foot on the floor. But at last I manage to click some shots :)

Ask me anything here

Wanted to use Mohd Rafi Sahab's beautiful rendition of "Ya Nabi" in this video but copyright issues stopped me from doing it. The vocals that you hear are mine. I have no intention to become a singer (hahahaha) but I recorded it to express my love and respect for Haji Abdul Rehman Shah Baba.
Thanks Rizwan, without your help this video would'nt have been shot.
Thanks Azhar for giving me this idea of shooting this spritual mystical visual of lobaan burning, devotees praying and "Ya Nabi" echoing all over.
The first 23 seconds is shot hand held (as i was late reaching the Dargah) and the rest of the video is on tripod.
Please click the 'set quality to HD' icon on the screen panel and view the video in High Definition crystal clear visual.
Shot with Nikon D90. Edited on FCP.

Saint Makhdoom Ali Mahimi (1372-1431) was a Sufi saint from the Konkan in India, widely acknowledged for his scholarly treatise, liberal views and humanist ideals. Mahimi was born into a family of Arab travellers who had settled down on the island of Mahim, one of the seven islands that later formed the city of Bombay (now Mumbai).

Not much is known of his early childhood. He later became the disciple of Mohiuddin Ibne Arabi, a Spanish based saint revered by Muslims. Mahimi's reputation grew after the sultan of Gujarat, Ahmed Shah of the Muzaffarid dynasty, chose him to be the town's Qazi (the head Muslim cleric of a town).

Mahimi was the first Indian scholar to have written an exegesis on the Qur'an, which gained critical acclimation from numerous Islamic scholars including Shah Waliullah. Authoring a total of nineteen books, he was given the moniker Qutb-e -Kokan (Kokan's Pole Star). Mahimi is revered by both the Muslims and Hindus, all Muslim sects hold him in high esteem. After his death in 1431, he was buried in Mahim itself. The site later became a dargah (shrine) for devotees.
During the annual ten day Urs festival celebrated on the 13th day of Shawwal as per the Muslim calendar, millions of devotees visit his dargah.
The highlight of this is a procession of around eight thousand begins at the Mahim Police Station, believed to be the site of his residence.
On 2005-05-21, the government of Maharashtra named the JJ Flyover after the saint as a tribute to the saint. The 2.1 kilometre flyover is the longest viaduct in the country.

Cant resist shooting this beautiful Dargah again and again. Just cant resist. Everytime I visit this spritual landmark of 'Mumbai' it always has to offer me something different in terms of visual. It's a dream to video shoot a sunset on here with my D90 and upload it on flickr. I will surely do this in the days to come.

When the Sufi Saint Hazrat Inayat Khan was buried in Feb. 1927 no one would dare touch the beautiful young tree that was growing next to the Saint's resting place. Even later when money flowed in from the Saint's devotees...and the Dargah was made ever more beautiful and ornate with carefully laid slabs of the finest marble...the tree stayed. They even cut a hole in the roof so the tree could continue to thrive and grow skyward.
Believe me when I tell you... this is one of the most beautiful places in all of India! But beauty aside...the place is a veritable ocean of tranquility. No one will be there but YOU!...And of course the Sufi Saint Hazrat Inayat Khan...and the tree.

Take my word for it! If you find yourself in Delhi...then by all means...please visit the Dargah of The Chishti Saint--Hazrat Inayat Khan. You WILL find real peace...and maybe much more! Then like all first-timers to this place...you will descend the stairs to the Bookstore...cause you will naturally want to read more about the man buried here...the Saint who made you feel so peaceful...and soooo close to God!

The dargah is built on a tiny islet located 500 yards from the coast, in the middle of Worli Bay, in the vicinity of Worli. The islet is linked to the city precinct of Mahalakshmi by a narrow causeway. This causeway is not bound by railings, and is lashed by the sea during high-tide. Therefore, the dargah is accessible only during low tide. This 500-yard-walk on the causeway, with the sea on both sides, is one of the highlights of a trip to the shrine.

The Haji Ali Dargah (Hindi: हाजी अली दरगाह) is a mosque and dargah (tomb) located on an islet off the coast of Worli in Mumbai. Lying as it does in the heart of the city, the dargah is one of the most recognizable landmarks of Mumbai.

The dargah was built in 1431 by a wealthy Muslim merchant and saint named Haji Ali who renounced all his wordly possessions before making a pilgrimage to Mecca. Legend has it that Haji Ali died on his way to Mecca and his body, in its casket, floated back to Mumbai. However, some believe that Haji Ali drowned at the place where the dargah stands today.

As many as 40,000 pilgrims visit the shrine on Thursdays and Fridays. People from all faiths visit & pray at the "dargah"

The whitewashed structure occupies an area of 4,500 metres, and an 85 foot (26 m) tower is the architectural highlight of the edifice. The tomb within the mosque is covered by a brocaded red and green chaddar (tomb cover sheet). It is supported by an exquisite silver frame. The main hall has marble pillars embellished with coloured mirror work: blue, green, yellow chips. The ninety-nine names of Allah are also written on the pillars.

Most of the structure is corroded due to saline winds blowing from the surrounding sea. It was last repaired in the 1960s, but civil engineers say the structure is beyond further repair. The Dargah Trust is awaiting permission to raze the structure and rebuild it with Makrana marble, the same marble used to build the Taj Mahal.

Born in, Persia Khwaja Qutub-ud-din Bakhtyar Kaki, also known.as Qutub Sahib came to Delhi, after wandering through Khurasan and Baghdad. Once here he became attached to Khwaja Moinudin Chisti, the founder of the Chisti order of the Sufis and when the later died, he succeeded to head the movement.He acquired the nickname “kaki” because he was fond of small cakes, which he was fed when he used to meditate. He died on November 15, 1233.
.
The graves of the later Mughal emperors, like Bahadur Shah I, Shah Alam and Akbar II, are in the nearby marble enclosure. Bahadur Shah Zafar had also prepared a tomb here but was deported to Rangoon by the British where he died

Muin-ud-Din Chisti (1143-1235) was a Persian Sufi saint who came to Ajmer in 1192. After his death a dargah (a Muslim shrine or tomb) was erected in the south-west corner of the city by Iltutmish (r.1211-1236), Sultan of Delhi, and later enlarged by the Mughal Emperor Humayan (r.1530-40; r.1555-56). Further renovations and additions were made by his successors. The tomb is a square white marble structure with a domed roof and two entrances, one with a silver arch. It stands in the centre of an inner court of the dargah complex, which also contains two white marble mosques and an assembly hall for the poor. The entrance to the complex is a high white gateway, shown in the distance in this view. The dargah became a site of pilgrimage under the patronage of Akbar.

Tags: sufism   dargahofmakhdoomshahbabamahim   
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Makhdoom Ali Mahimi (1372–1431) was a Muslim Scholar originating from the Konkan in India, widely[vague] acknowledged for his scholarly treatises, liberal views and humanist ideals. Mahimi was born into a family of Arab travelers from Iraq who had settled down on the island of Mahim, one of the seven islands that later formed the city of Bombay (now Mumbai).
Not much is known of his early childhood. He later became the disciple of Mohiuddin Ibne Arabi, a Spanish Muslim saint. Mahimi's reputation grew after the Sultan of Gujarat, Ahmed Shah of the Muzaffarid dynasty, chose him to be the town's Qazi (the Head Muslim Judge/cleric of a town).
Mahimi was the first Indian scholar to write an exegesis on the Qur'an, which gained critical acclimation from numerous Islamic scholars including Shah Waliullah. Authoring a total of nineteen books, he was given the moniker Qutb-e -Kokan (Kokan's Pole Star). His commentary (tafseer) of the Nobel Quran in Arabic "Tayseer Al-Quran" is available in Al Azhar University, Cairo and Ummul-Qura University, Makkah.
Mahimi is revered by both the Muslims and Hindus, all Muslim sects hold him in high esteem. After his death in 1431, he was buried in Mahim. The site later became a dargah (shrine) for devotees.

During the annual ten day Urs festival celebrated on the 13th day of Shawwal as per the Muslim calendar, millions of devotees visit his dargah.
The highlight of this is a procession of around eight thousand begins at the Mahim Police Station, believed to be the site of his residence. Two police officers from each of the eighty four city police stations represent the police whose association with the saint dates back to the saint's era. A representative of the Mumbai police who is the first to offer the "chaddar" (shawl) at the tomb on the first day of the festival. Legend has it that it was a police constable who gave water to the dying saint from his cap. Another story points to some miraculous assistance police officers once received from an old man, whom they believed was the saint, in fighting smugglers.
A room adjacent to the office of the senior inspector of police station contains a steel cupboard that houses the saint's preserved belongings such as his chair, a pair of sandals and his hand-written Qur'an which is considered to be a calligraphic work of art. The room is opened once every year to the public. In 1920 the cupboard was purchased by a senior British police inspector, Raymond Esquire as a tribute to the saint he revered.
On 2005-05-21, the government of Maharashtra named the JJ Flyover after the saint as a tribute to the saint. The 2.1 kilometre flyover is the longest viaduct in the country.
[edit]Name And Lineage


Dargah Sharif on 11/23/2011
His name is Ali as well as Alauddin. His surname is Abul Hasan and the title is Zainuddin. The tribes of Nawait families were connected to the ‘Paro’ and the same that is ‘Paro’ was his family title. Being well versed in theology he was called Faquih and being a place of refuge to all and a competent authority he was called Makhdum.He was considered to be one of the saints. So, he was called, Shaikh’.
His respectable father’s name is Maulana Shaikh Ahmad who was a learned man of high grade and he was a genuine saint. He was considered to be one of the wealthy traders of Kokan.
His honourable mother’s name is Hazrat Fatima Bint (Daughter of) Nakhuda Husain Ankolia. It is said of his maternal grandfather that he was king of the traders. His venerable mother was a pious devout, an abstinent and she was very religious-minded and god-fearing. She was a saintly woman.
1) He is Makhdum Ali Bin Ahmad and known as Ibn (son) of Bint (daughter of) Husain Nakuda Ankolia. This statement (opinion) has been adapted from a book namely Khatib Kalyani in an Arabic magazine Zamirul Insaan.
2) He is Ali Bin Hasan Bin Ibrahim Bin Ismail, the writer of ilhamur Rehman and Compiler of Tafsirur Rehman Bin Muhammad Bin Ahmad entitled Kodar. This opinion was found written at the end of ‘Shumailul Atqiya by the writer of this magazine. This book Shumail’, as per the writer of the magazine was written in his own handwriting by Hazrat Makhdum Ali Faquih Mahaimi. He writes, also that, the scholars of our times were fully sure that the second statement had been written by Hazrat Makhdum Ali Faquih Mahaimi himself at the end of the’ Shumail’.
Maulawi Late Muhammad Yusuf Khatkhate. referring to a passage of the handwritten book Tabsirur Rehman, has written that in this book as described, of Hazrat Makhdurn Ali, is Alauddin and as a matter of fact our forefathers and parents are related to Ali Paro Bin Ahmad Paro Bin Ali Paro Bin Ahmad Paro and as well as, ibn bint (D/O) Husain Nakhuda Ankolia . And probably it is the right one.
This hand-written copy of the book was copied down 133 years after the death of Hazrat Makhdum Ali Faquih Mahaimi any way, Hazrat Makhdum Ali was a son and descendant of a gentle and respectable family. And his predecessors were originally Arabs that is Naiti. In an ancient book. It is written that (Hazrat Makhdum Ali Maulana Shaikh Ahmad Mahaimi comes of a Nawait Clan. This word is on the metre (weight) of Thawabit. A certain community lived in the cities and towns of Southern India (The Deccan). Their description is available in the Persian books. An ancient written, Tabri has written in his historical book that Naita is a tribe of ‘Quraish who had fled from Madina Munawwara due to the fear of Hajjaj Bin Yusuf (who had killed five thousand scholars and saintly people without any pretext). And these people got down near about the mouth of the Indus River. and they made that territory their living place.[1]
[edit]The Originality Of Nawayat

The word of Nawayat can be written with its last letters as ‘to’e’ or ‘te’ The ancient historians and the writers of biographies used to write it with both the letters.
Nawayat is a community of the tribe, Quraish, who is related to Muhammad through Nazr Bin Kanana. These were the residents of Madina Munawwara. They migrated to India during the period of Hajjaj bin Yusuf and they got down on the coast of the Indian Ocean.
[edit]Arrival Of Nawayat In India

Having got fed up with the cruelties and tyrannies of Hajjaj Bin Yusuf. the first caravan of Muslim Arab Migrators took shelter in India on 8th Hijri that is in the year 699 A.D. There were, in this caravan, some Arab migrators of the village of Basra., which was called Nayat. Their family tree is connected to the tribe of Quraish through the family of Banu Nazar.
Against the courageous steps of Abdulla Bin Zubair Radi Allahu anhu, Abdul Malik Bin Marwan encouraged and incited Hajjaj Bin Yususf to killings, plunder and blood-shed. He made many a people of Banu Hashim prisoners and made them to suffer great hardships. Some of these people went to North Africa and Spain and one of the caravans of the migrators got down around the islands of Bombay. They got down at Sopara, Thana, Semore (Chambur). a seaport at that time.
In the Bombay Gazette, it has been written about Hazrat Makhdum Ali Faquih Mahaimi that: “This sufi (saint) was of Arab origin. His fore-fathers came to Mahim in the year 860 A.D. i.e. 252 H. as they were not able to stand against the tyrannies and cruelties of Hajjaj Bin Yusuf And after about five hundred years later Hazrat Makhdum Ali Faquih Mahaimi was born.
[edit]Education And Training

His honourable father Maulana Hazrat Shaikh Ahmad Sahib was learned, great scholar and saintly man. He lived in Kokan from the very beginning. He was of Arab origin *and comes of the descendants of Hazrat Jafar Tayyar Radi allahu anhu Bin Hazrat Abi Talib Radi Allahu anhu . His mausoleum is situated in Amman (the capital of .Jordan) in the city of Moutha. The city of Mautah is situated at the distance of 112 Km. from Amman.
His honourable father, having observed his smart son’s cleverness and liking for knowledge and learning, paid his attention to his higher education. And, as he, too, was a great scholar of Arabic language.
[2]
He, therefore. helped his son Hazrat Makhdum Ali Mahaimi to become. a scholar. In his childhood. under the training of his father, Maulana Shaikh Ahmed rehmatullahi Bin Ali, Hazrat Makhdum Ali Mahaimi acquired full fledged knowledge of recitation of’ the Qura’n with correct phonetics. theology, logic, philosophy, Hadith and all other extra-religious fields of knowledge and traditionlally reported sciences etcetera.
The gracious mother of Hazrat Makhdum, Hazrat Bibi Fatima, too, was a perfect saintly woman. The gracious parents of Hazrat Makhdum through their training. polished and illuminated the God-gifted talents of their son. And by the favour and bounty of Allah, He became a writer of Quranic exegesis of high quality, a scholar of Muhammad's traditions, a theologian and a saint (Sufi), excellent and well versed in revelation and miracles. It is widely known that Hazrat Khizr Alaih salaam, also, took a greater part in his training.
When Hazrat Makhdum was barely of nine years age. completed all the branches of knowledge. external as well as celestial and the Islamic Jurisprudence. Thereafter, only a few days had passed when, on the 25th of Jamadil Akhir 785 Hijri, his father Maulana Shaikh died.
In some other book, the year of the expiry of Maulana Shaikh Ahmad Bin Ali is given as 788 Hijri.)
Hazrat Makhdum’s revered father Maulana Shaikh Ahmad Bin Ali; who rose from the land of Kalyan, was buried in the very place of land. The grave of Hazrat Makhdum Ali’s father is situated in the locality of Kalyan, namely Bombal Bazar*. Near Namak Bander (salt port) of Kalyan, there is an old graveyard and in it is situated a pucca Mausoleum, a shrine. of Maulana Shaikh Ahmad Ali which was built on 5th Rabiul Awwal, 1313 Hijri.
His mausoleum is situated adjacent to the Bahir Kot (fort) Masjid (Mosque) and to the other side, there is the mausoleum of Hazrat Nizamuddin Khamosh.
Bombal Bazar, - Ghas Bazar :. On this very same date, the fair (Urs) is celebrated every year regularly.
Some local poet has said two stanzas of poetry in Urdu depicting the date of his expiry. These are in Urdu and the poet is Rashid. They are inscribed on two marble plaques. One of them is inside the mausoleum while the other one is outside it.
The inside plaque bears these lines:
Janab-e- Shaikh Ahmad Wasil-e-Haq
Jahan se jab huye jannat ko rukhsat
Lisan-e-gaib-e- Rashid ne bataya
Makeenul Khuld un ka sal-e- rukhsat
(788 H.)
When Hazrat Makhdum Ali became orphan due to the expiry of his father, his thirst for knowledge and learning went on increasing. There was no source to quench this thirst. hence he came to his respected mother and said, Dear Mother My longing for knowledge is going on increasing. Here, I don’t find any source to satisfy my desire and longing for it. If you give me permission then. I would set out in search of the knowledge. The respected mother looked at the son for some time and then said.’ My son! your separation is unbearable to me. Allah, The Highest, is The Causer of the Causes. He, being the real doer of things, will make such a provision from unknown that it will be the source of satisfaction to your longing. The knowledge that is obtained through the divine favour is better than that acquired by any method of teaching and learning.
So. the very night. his respectable mother prayed to Allah and her prayers were answered positively by Allah. As usual, after the early morning prayer was over, Hazrat Makhdum Ali, went for a walk to the sea-side. While he was strolling on the coast of the sea, he saw a radiant faced elderly person sitting on a rock which was lying on the coast of the sea. He conveyed his salam (the best wishes) to him. The elderly man returned his salams to Hazrat Makhdum Ali and showed his pleasure smilingly. Then, he said, ‘ You are longing for acquiring divine knowledge, then you come here to me daily every morning and I will teach you. The things you wish to obtain through journeys to distant places, Insha Allah (If Allah so wishes), you will get the same here and here. I am the Khizr Alaih salaam. Allah, The highest, has sent me to teach you. Don’t divulge this secret to anybody.
So, he would go to that place where Khizr Alaih salam used to be sitting. It was his routine to do so every morning after the early morning (fajr) prayers were over. He was regular in this . And, thus, he started to acquire godly knowledge from Hazrat Khizr Alaih Salaam In a few days, he was perfect in both the types of knowledge, intellectual as well as additional. One day, by chance, his respectable mother made an enquiry with him. saying. “My son! To whom do you go to obtain knowledge daily? I have heard that you go to the sea-shore every day” . At first, he hesitated to give reply to his mother’s enquiry. But, feeling that it would be against the manner, he said, I go to Hazrat Khizr Alaih Salaam to learn from him.”
The next day, when, as usual, he went to the sea-shore, he found that Hazrat Khizr Alaih Salaam was not there. He regretted much and become very sorrowful and came to his mother. Hazrat Makhdum, with tears in his eyes said to his mother, ‘Dear Mother ! I had, against the instruction and warning of Hazrat Khizr Alaih Salaam, mentioned you the secret of his teaching. And, I think, most probably, being angry with me, he did not turn up today.” The glorious mother, again, consoled him and said, “Don’t be disapponted. Allah, The Highest, is The Most Powerful. He will send, again, Hazrat Khizr Alaih Salaam for the sake of you. “ The glorious mother prayed to Allah, that very night. Consequently, the next day, at the time of the prayers of Asr, Hazrat Khizr Alaih Salaam met him on the way and said, “ You have got the inspired- knowledge by the order of Allah.” Then he took him to the sea-shore and having taken out a morsel of godly bounty from his own mouth, fed it to him and said “Your glorious mother’s prayers are always answered positively and you have achieved mastery over all the branches of knowledge by the favour of Allah.” When he was free from the evening prayers, he found his pure and clean bosom overloaded with all the branches of the knowledge.
[edit]Habits And Good Qualities

The real essence of life is the beauty of character. It is only the good character that has made the memory of the noble men perpetual and has strengthened their description Sayyid Ibrahim Madni, in his hook, Magazine Zamirul Insan says, “ Hazrat Makhdum Sahib was very modest, good mannered, obedient and fond of service to his parents from his childhood. By chance, one night his mother, after her night prayers, was lying on the bed. She felt thirsty. So, she asked Makhdum Ali to fetch her water. He return with the water but he saw that his mother was fast asleep. He thought that to awake her from the sleep would be against the good manners. So, he stood beside her with the glass of water in his hand for the whole night.
At last, it was early morning when his mother woke up from sleep. She asked him,’My son, how long are you standing here with the water? ‘.He said, “ Since the time you went to sleep and you had asked for the water. And I am, since then standing here waiting for you to wake up”
The mother liked this good mannerly behaviour of her son to such an extent that her happiness knew no bounds. She got up from the bed immediately, performed ablution and prayed to Allah for the betterment of her son. It was the effect of these prayers of his mother that due to it Makhdum Sahib very soon attained the perfection in both the types of sciences of knowledge, apparent as well as latent.
While describing the noble character of Hazrat Makhdum Ali Faquih Mahaimi some of the people have written that he was very much generous and libral. He used to help the needy open-heartedly. Even though he was the son of a wealthy father, he never gave importance to the worldly ‘wealth and riches.There was a crowd of guests at his house all the time. On his table cloth various kinds of tasty foods were served and he felt happy to feed the guests to their satisfaction. It is said that he liked fish very much. All the Muslims and the Hindus, both were attracted by his pleasing character and good behaviour.
[edit]Devotion And Mystic Exercise

Hazrat Makhdum Ali was a genuine abstinent, devotee, master of the knowledge of all the branches of sciences in respect of Islamic Jurisprudence and intimate knowledge of God and measure” and regulations, both apparent and the latent. He had reached to the zenith in the intellectual sciences and conventional as well. He had the best qualities and pleasing habits and excellent characteristics. He performed extra-ordinay feats.
Sufi (Saintly person) Shaikh Abdul Wahab Muttaqui Shazli Qadiri, describes, in his book, a strange event concerning Hazrat Makhdum Ali
“ The author of ‘ Tafsir-e-Rehmani Hazrat Shaikh Ali Mahaimi was overwhelmed with the effect of meditation and absorption. The ruling king’s sister was in matrimonial relation with him. One day, the king’s wives and their lady companions came to see the king’s sister at the Shaikh’s house. Shaikh, at that time, was sitting at the door of the house. The ladies hesitated to come in. Shaikh’s mother was present there. She said to them, ‘Why are you hesitant? Come on. What is the hesitation and reluctance for at all?’ They said that they were reluctant to come in because Shaikh was sitting on the door sill and he would see them. Shaikh’s mother said that it was not possible because he was in the unconscious state. He had no sense of any thing, neither theirs nor of this world and the hereafter as well. No sooner they heard this, all of them came in . Then they insisted on its proof. Thereupon, Shaikh’s mother came to him and said to him,’ My son take this wrapper and wear this on and give your dress for washing. At that shaikh was putting on clean clothes. He, immediately, put off his clothes and put on the wrapper. And, again he sat down. After an hour, his mother brought him other dirty clothes and asked him to take off his clothes. Shaikh took the same dirty clothes and put them on. He had no sense as to which clothes he should put on and which to put off.”
In one of the magazine, he has said;
“In Yeman, there lived a learned man by name Imam Jamal Muhammad One of the servants brought to me a letter from him. and he stated: It is a fact that Sharfuddin the Yemani the teacher of Quran has not the understanding and discerning power to such extent than he may be able to comprehend the works of Shaikh Mohiuddin Ibn Arabi Even then he belittles Shaikh only because he, himself is incapable and inefficient and he is bent on infidelity to the Shaikh and the followers of him.
Having heard this awkward and malicious statement, a thought occurred to my mind that I must bring out what the truth is. And this thought didn’t allow me to sit at my house idle. Helplessly, I decided to make a journey and set out to Yeman. Having reached there, I forwarded the necessary arguments and gave perfect proofs and evidences. And, at last I succeeded in wiping out the dust of doubts and suspicion and cleansed the pollution of criticism and abuse from the beliefs of the teacher, Muallim.

[edit]Revelations And Miracles

Those elderly and saintly people who adopted the life style of their dear most Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam , in a very few days. they too start the experience of their being beloved and to this the promise is made by Allah in His Glorious book. The Qura’n that whosoever adopts the manners, the ways of life. the habits, the characteristics and the traditions of Muhammad, he will be under the care of Allah.
In the words of the Muhammad, it is as:
“Tell them, if you love Allah, do follow me. Then Allah will be mindful of you.”
Hazrat Makhdum Ali Mahairni was one of the chief Awilyas (The saints). Many a miracle are attributed to him. Hence, many a people have written books on his miracles with title of Karamat-e-Makhdum (The Miracles of Makhdum). Many of them are hearsays only and to establish their authenticity is difficult due to lack of documentary evidences Therefore. we. mention here only’ those of his miracles that are brought to light by the writer of the Magazine. ‘Zamirul insan’, Maulana Sayyid Ibrahim Madani and that too, with particular stress.
(1) It is natrated that Hazrat Makhdum Baba had reared a she-goat whom he loved immensely. Once when he had gone away on some business, the goat fell ill and ultimately died, His mother got the deid goat buried on the sea-shore. When he heard about the death of the goat, he became extremely sad and went to the sea-shore to see it. His maid-servant had followed him and he ordered her to go away. She got frightened and went away from that place, but hid herself at a little distance. After the departure of the servant he recited some prayer and he stood there for some time praying to Allah. The maid servant who was watching all this saw the legs of the animal moving. Afterwards, he held the ear of the goat and brought her back home. This was the first miraculous feat that he exhibited at the age of 10 and its report spread far and wide.
(2) This maid servant, since that day, made it a regular practice- to serve Hazrat Makhdum Baba Whenever she washed his clothes she would preserve the first wash of water and drank it This entitled her also to gain knowledge and miraculous powers by the Grace of Allah. One day a traveller came to the mosque in Mahim. Hazrat Makhdum Baba noticed him and sent food to him through this maid-servant. When the maid reached the mosque with the tray of food she found the traveller missing. Through her powers she traced the person to be praying in the Khana-e-Ka’aba. She reached Makka and served him and later returned to the mosque. Thus, his dependents and followers also performed miraculous feats.
(3) Once, as usual, the men of INSIGHT had assembled from far off place and a general meeting was organised. During the session, one of the pious men informed that there is a Lote tree in the land of Madina Munawwara whose fruit is very delicious and nice. On this Hazrat Makhdum Baba said, “This was the season of this fruit and requested him to get some of it from there. He replied in the affirmative and promised to present Hazrat Makhdum Baba that fruit, He himself was a perfect scholar and had mastered the special prayer (benediction) called “Tayyal Farasakh” which at once took him to Madina. When he reached the tree he saw that there was someone already up the tree. He decided not to climb up and requested the person upon the tree to shake one of the branches of the tree so that he may also pick up some fruits. The man on the tree plucked some fruits and dropped them on the ground and shook a branch as well. The sage picked up the fruit and returned to Mahim.
He presented the said fruit to Hazrat Makhdum Baba who ate some of it and appreciated its taste and then remarked that. the fruit was undoubtedly tasty but he had brought it without exerting any effort. On hearing this the said sage felt very much astonished and he thought that perhaps he was watched by Hazrat Makhdum Baba by his miraculous powers but the situation was completely different. Hazrat Makhdum Baba had personally reached there prior to him and had climbed the tree. The holy man also realised the same and begged pardon. He accepted the difference between them. Hazrat Makhdum Baba is the Qutb of Konkan (The Polar Star of Konkan). Afterwards, Hazrat Shaikh Makhdum Baba removed some fruits from his pocket and distributed them among the people assembled there. All of them ate and relished them.
(4) During the days of Hazrat Makhdum Baba, the marine traffic had commenced and the ship started navigating to and fro. In those days a Hindu trader despatched his merchandise aboard a ship but the ship did not return. Seven years passed by and he virtually forgot about that ship. But whenever any accident of such nature occurred, he mourned about his loss regretfully. He met many learned people, religious activists, astrologers and sorcerers to inquire about the fate of his ship. All of them told him that, that ship had sunk along with his merchandise and general cargo. A disciple of Hazrat Makhdum Baba was also sitting there and he inquired of this fellow whether he had ever approached his Shaikh and told him if he had not, he should accompany him there and then and he assured him that he would certainly get satisfactory information about his ship. The man agreed and they reached Hazrat Makhdum Baba and narrated the entire incident. Hazrat Makhdum Baba told him to sit down and close his eyes. He did as directed and then Hazrat Makhdum Baba told him to open his eyes and then prophesied that his ship laden with his cargo and merchandise. would arrive back on the sea-shore on that very day in the evening.
The trader returned home and he was puzzled as to how the said ship that was lost seven years ago would suddenly appear from no where and that too on that very day. He reached the sea-shore before the onset of evening. He was restless. He saw a ship approaching the coast before the sunset. After half an hour the ship arrived and (he trader was amazed as it was his own ship.
He was beyond himself with joy. He developed utter faith in the miraculous power of Hazrat Makhdum Baba. The next day. he, along with his family members. came to Hazrat Makhdum Baba and cheerfully and willingly embraced Islam.
(5) Hazrat Makhdum Baba was famous as a trustworthy person. A man came to him and said that he was going alone on a journey and did not want to take some of his gems and diamonds along with him lest they be robbed. He requested Hazrat Makhdum Baba to keep them in his trust and that he would take them back on his return. At that time, Hazrat Makhdum Baba was standing close to a well and he agreed to help that man. As soon as that man placed those diamonds on his blessed hand, he dropped them into the well. The man, puzzled and perplexed, enquired how he would retrieve them? Hazrat Makhdum Baba told him that he would get them back whenever he wanted. But he was a hasty man and demanded his diamonds. Hazrat Makhdum Baba put his hand in the well and brought out a fistful of gems and told him to pick up his diamonds from amongst them. The man was astonished, ashamed and repented upon his mistake. Ultimately. Hazrat Makhdum Baba himself picked up his particular gems and handed them over to him and threw the remaining diamonds back in the well.
(6) Hazrat Makhdum Baba was a very rich and well-to-do person. His dining table served a variety of delicious food. His guest house was always full with his guests who were treated very kindly and generously and served with excellent food.
Hazrat Makhdum Baba’s supernatural powers and piety gained much publicity and acclaim. Once in the assembly of pious men his position came under discussion. It was said that he was a very generous person and liked nice and sumptuous food. It was said that he was a turn of Insight and piety and held a high position in awliya (bloved of Allah). One of the attendants said that such combination cannot be found and that religious accomplishments and worldly preferences never went together because to him the (derwish) mendicants always cherished simple food. A heated discussion followed this statement but that man was not satisfied and he perferred to observe the situation himself. So he set out to meet Hazrat Makhdum personally. He came to Mahim and Hazrat Makhdum Baba lovingly lodged him in his guest house. At the meal-time, the dining-table was set and that day fish was served specially. The man found him the way he had heard about him. Hazrat Makhdum Baba was performing the duties of the host very graciously and requested the guest to do full justice to the food served. He had personally joined him in partaking food. He insisted that his guest should taste every item of the menu. Hazrat Makhdum Baba finished his food earlier than the guest. He dropped the bones of the fish in the wash-basin whilst washing his hands. When the guest completed his meal and washed his hands in the wash-basin, he found to his amazement that, instead of the bones, the fishes were swimming in the basin. He was astonished, his question received a very fitting answer. So he very earnestly and humbly asked for his forgiveness. Hazrat Makhdum showed his wisdom and affection. He excused him and said that he never intended to show any trace of pride or superiority but just wanted to prove that Allah is Al-mighty and shows His kindness to the one whom He likes.
(7) Since Mahim is situated on the sea-shore, the ships have been arriving there from different countries. Certain foreigners stayed there in rented houses for some period of time. Incidentally, a young, handsome and rich Arab trader reached there and he settled there for a couple of days. Perchance, he passed by the house of a girl and happened to see her. That very moment he fell in love with her and he expressed his feelings that he would like to marry the girl if she was unmarried. The people told him though the girl was unmarried she could not marry him because she had been engaged to the poor boy of Mahim.
The Arab trader said that the engagement could be broken and that he was prepared to bear the expenses.
Some people, that very day, approached the father of the girl who was already engaged with a (poor) boy. They misled the father and made him agreeable to break the engagement of his daughter and to get her married to the Arab trader.
In order to break the engagement, a meeting of the community was called. When this news reached the Arab trader, he felt extremely delighted. But that very news aggrieved and saddened that poor boy. There was none who could console him. Nonetheless, Allah had destined something else. When the boy reached the mosque the next morning for prayers, he was spotted by the Great Faqih, Hazrat Makhdum Ali and every thing had become clear to him. He called the boy aside and told him to be patient and thankful to Allah. He added that a truthful person always attained tranquility and peace of mind. He further said that he would personally attend the meeting of the community and would see as to what could be done for him and by what means.This kind and favourable attitude of Hazrat Makhdum Baba gladdened the boy and He busied himself with his daily routine. The meeting was held on the fixed time. Hazrat also reached there and was received very warmly by the people and was made the President of that meeting. The deliberations started and the problem of.the Arab trader was raised and the agenda of the break-up of the engagement with that boy on the basis of his poverty was discussed. At this point Hazrat explained that riches and poverty were not specially assigned to certain people and that, that distinction was meaningless. Someone, prone to tell lies, said that the boy had the habit of drinking. Then Hazrat inquired whether anybody had seen him drinking or in the state of inebriation. If not that would not be considered as evidence in which case that matter could be condoned. This situation silenced everybody arid then he delivered his judgement and that was that both the poor boy and the rich Arab trader should go on the pilgrimage of Hajj. And anyone of them who returned earlier than the other should be allowed to marry the girl. All the people unanimously agreed with this suggestion. The Arab trader was particularly happy since he owned a personal sailing ship which he could handle the way he wanted. He felt that his poor rival will go by some ship after paying the fare and would not be able to return early as per his desire.
Within next couple of days the Arab set sails for the pilgrimage. When the poor boy heard about his departure, he felt very depressed and conveycd the news to Hazrat who comforted him and told him not to worry as Allah would make all the arrangements.
In the meantime, the months of Shawal and Zilqad passed by and the moon of the month of Zilhajj made its appearance. The 8th of the said month came and none could see any arrangement being made for the departure of the boy and he was always being seen in Mahim. On the morning of the 9th when the Hajj was to be performed, the boy reached the mosque and Hazrat told him not to go anywhere after the prayers and should wait for him there only. He did as he was told and waited for Hazrat who ultimately came and proceeded with the boy towards the hoz of the masjid. Then they stood at the edge of the hoz and Hazrat told the boy close his eyes and not to open them till asked to do so. Then Hazrat held the hand of the boy and dived him into the hoz and after a few moments told the boy to open his eyes. When the boy opened his eyes, he found himself standing on the gate of the Khana-e-Ka’aba. Then Hazrat took out some money from his pocket and while giving it to the boy he said that he should purchase necessary provisions of the Hajj. He told him to meet the Arab trader who had lodged in a particular tent, that day. it-self. He was further told to meet Hazrat at that very spot after performing the Hajj and that he should keep the entire episode as well-guarded secret, The boy proceeded to do whatever he was asked to while thanking Allah. He was very happy as Allah had honoured him with the kindness of such an accomplished leader and monitor.
After wearing, Ihram he reached the plains of Arafat and searched the tent of the rich Arab trader and met him. Afterwards he performed the rites and rituals and other important duties pertaining to Hajj which he completed in two or three days and he reached Hateem on the 12th to meet Hazrat Makhdoom Baba. Hazrat Makhdum Baba again told him to close his eyes and after a short time they reached the masjid. Six months elapsed when the Arab trader returned to Mahim. The meeting of the community, as per the programme, was called again. Hazrat Makhdum Baba attended this meeting too. The Arab also came there. Hazrat Makhdum Baba asked him whether he had performed the Hajj on which he replied in the affirmative. He further asked him whether that boy had gone for Hajj and whether he had met the trader or whether he had seen him there. The trader replied that the boy had gone for Hajj and had met him in the plains of Arafat and that he had seen him performing the Hajj and all the relevant rites and rituals. Then Hazrat Makhdum Baba asked the traders whether that boy had returned to Mahirn earlier. They confirmed that he had certainly returned earlier. By the Grace of Allah this state of affairs consolidated the faith of the people that all that had happened was due to him and that it was his glance of favour that allowed the boy to win that contest. The Arab trader kept quiet and accepted his defeat. Finally that girl was married to that poor boy.
Apart from this, many other supernatural feats were exhibited by Hazrat Makhdum Baba.
Zauqui Shah Sahib writes as:
“He preferred a life of loneliness and obscurity for a considerable period of his life. But his knowledge and excellence, his extra ordinary feats, obvious as well as latent, his miracles and the supernatural events that were revealed by and through him, made the whole world attracted to him….”

Qawwali as a musical form is closely linked to the sufic traditions of Islam and the particular practices that Sufi scholars developed to achieve closeness to God.

Qawwali is an integral part of the rituals here. A qawwali is a song in the praise of Allah. They are sung by the qawwals (devotional singer) at the Mehfil-e-Sama in front of the mazar after the fajar namaz, magrib namaz, and isha namaz are over

The Dargah of the Naqshbandiyya -Mujaddidiyya Saint: Maulana Khalifat al-Rahman Ahmad Ali Khan Mau Rashidabadi (d.1889) Here is a far off-forgotten graveyard in Farrukhabad. The Saint lies in the grave on the far right. Other graves of the poor lie buried around the Saint's Tomb...in hopes of attracting the loving gaze and Baraka of the Saint. Smart move...for Hazrat Ahmad Ali Khan Sahib was a Saint of astounding spiritual power. Just to meditate with him for a few minutes, or to attract his benevolent glance was enough to put one on the Road to the Almighty. Many come from Delhi, Kanpur and Lucknow to visit his Dargah.
This Muslim Graveyard is over a 1000 years old. Enlarge the pic and see how many old nameless graves appear...yes.....short is man's sojourn on the earth...

The Haji Ali Dargah (Hindi: हाजी अली दरगाह) is a mosque and dargah (tomb) located on an islet off the coast of Worli in Mumbai. Lying as it does in the heart of the city, the dargah is one of the most recognizable landmarks of Mumbai.

The dargah was built in 1431 by a wealthy Muslim merchant and saint named Haji Ali who renounced all his wordly possessions before making a pilgrimage to Mecca. Legend has it that Haji Ali died on his way to Mecca and his body, in its casket, floated back to Mumbai. However, some believe that Haji Ali drowned at the place where the dargah stands today.

As many as 40,000 pilgrims visit the shrine on Thursdays and Fridays. People from all faiths visit & pray at the "dargah"

The whitewashed structure occupies an area of 4,500 metres, and an 85 foot (26 m) tower is the architectural highlight of the edifice. The tomb within the mosque is covered by a brocaded red and green chaddar (tomb cover sheet). It is supported by an exquisite silver frame. The main hall has marble pillars embellished with coloured mirror work: blue, green, yellow chips. The ninety-nine names of Allah are also written on the pillars.

Most of the structure is corroded due to saline winds blowing from the surrounding sea. It was last repaired in the 1960s, but civil engineers say the structure is beyond further repair. The Dargah Trust is awaiting permission to raze the structure and rebuild it with Makrana marble, the same marble used to build the Taj Mahal.

The Haji Ali Dargah (Hindi: हाजी अली दरगाह) is a mosque and dargah (tomb) located on an islet off the coast of Worli in Mumbai. Lying as it does in the heart of the city, the dargah is one of the most recognizable landmarks of Mumbai.

The dargah was built in 1431 by a wealthy Muslim merchant and saint named Haji Ali who renounced all his wordly possessions before making a pilgrimage to Mecca. Legend has it that Haji Ali died on his way to Mecca and his body, in its casket, floated back to Mumbai. However, some believe that Haji Ali drowned at the place where the dargah stands today.

As many as 40,000 pilgrims visit the shrine on Thursdays and Fridays. People from all faiths visit & pray at the "dargah"

The whitewashed structure occupies an area of 4,500 metres, and an 85 foot (26 m) tower is the architectural highlight of the edifice. The tomb within the mosque is covered by a brocaded red and green chaddar (tomb cover sheet). It is supported by an exquisite silver frame. The main hall has marble pillars embellished with coloured mirror work: blue, green, yellow chips. The ninety-nine names of Allah are also written on the pillars.

Most of the structure is corroded due to saline winds blowing from the surrounding sea. It was last repaired in the 1960s, but civil engineers say the structure is beyond further repair. The Dargah Trust is awaiting permission to raze the structure and rebuild it with Makrana marble, the same marble used to build the Taj Mahal.

The 'Saint Ma-Hajiani' Dargah or Mausoleum was built in the year 1908 as a token of devotion and reverence to glorify her pious name and sacred memory by Haji Ismail Hasham, ship-owner and pioneer of Indian shipping, who died on 20th september 1912 and was burried according to his last wishes in the west side grave of this tomb.
