6th Rajab ul Murajjab URS Mubaarak of Hazrat Khawaajah Saiyyid Mu'een ud deen Hasan Chishti Sajizi Ajmeri Sarkaar Gareeb Nawaaz (Radiyal Laahu 'Anhu)

Translated Lecture of Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Shafee Okarvi [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh]...continue

Passed Into the Realm of Divine Beauty
He had fulfilled his duty, as per instruction of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him, his family and his companions). His Karamaat's are many and status is indescribable. When Khawaajah Saahib [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] passed into the realm of Divine Beauty [on the 6 Rajab 633 AH/1233 AD] at the age of 97 the unseen hand had inscribed on his forehead,
He Is A Beloved Of Allaah Kareem Who Died In The Love Of Allaah [Ta’aalaa]. He was buried in Ajmer and his blessed Mazaar is present up to this day.

Devotees
Many Karamaat’s emanated from him and millions are his devotees, being disciples of his disciples. Many relics have been preserved. King Auranzeb Alamgeer being the king of Hindustan, visited the blessed Mazaar four times, journeying on foot. On his way to the Mazaar Shareef he made numerous donations and gifts to the poor and needy.
 
Jahaan Araa Begum, the daughter of Shaah Jehaan, a great devotee of Khawaajah Saahib came to the Mazaar and at each stop she read two chapters of Qur’aan, Soorah Yaaseen, and Faatihah; and donated much to the poor and needy.

When King Jahangeer came to the Mazaar  Shareef but 2 miles before the mazaar he walked out of respect and reverence of Khawaajah Saahib. He gave much to the poor and needy and of the two huge pots used for cooking up to this day, the smaller was his gift to the Dargaah premises. Shaah Jehaan built the Marble Mosque and Sultaan Mahmuud Hindi built many portions of the Dargaah. Many kings came and left remembrances of their visit. Of the two huge pots, Mughal Akbar donated the biggest. All these gifts are preserved up to the present time.

The supreme remembrance is the lesson to future generations, how The People of Almighty Allaah lived and how they propagated Islaam. The lesson of how amidst Polytheism (shirk) and Misbelief (kufr) the lamp of Islaam was lit. Khawaajah Saahib’s status is so great that he is the King of the Chishteeyah Spiritual Order. His spiritual benevolence blessings flow up to this day. Remember these people do not die, but are freed of physical restrictions and their spiritual benevolence and blessings get stronger. Allaah Kareem willing their spiritual benevolence and blessings will be with us till the Day Of Reckoning. This is a separate topic but remember that the Tasarruf [Free Disposal or dispensing. The Perfect Man governs the affairs of the world and controls them by means of Divine Names. This is attained through directing of his spiritual energy.] That they attain from Allaah Kareem as I explained in previous lectures in which Almighty Allaah says, ‘I become their hands etc.’ then their physical senses and power becomes unlimited, though dependent on Allaah Kareem.
Tell me is this excellence of theirs Spiritual (Ruhaani) or physical (jismaani)? If your answer is Spiritual (Ruhaani), which is correct, then tell me does the Spirit Or Soul (Rooh) die?
No! Death is the separation of the soul from the body. If the soul is so powerful within the cage of the soul then how powerful must it be after being freed from this bodily cage? Those that say Auliyaa Allaah are dead and their power has ceased are themselves dead, for the people of Allaah [Ta’aalaa], never die.
The Lovers of Allaah attain eternal life. Remember their tasarrufaat increases after death. Khawaajah Saahib is one such Walee whose ability to change conditions (tasarrufaat) exists to this day and will be so forever.
Hazrat Ghaus Al-A’zam, Hazrat Bahaa ud deen Naqshbandi and all these great Auliyaa Allaah are alive and interfere in constitution up to this day and will, God willing till eternity. Believe in them and love them. Their love is the essence of faith and a means of salvation.
In five salaah we pray’ ‘O Allaah Kareem guide us along the straight path, the path of those whom You shower Your blessings upon.’ These Auliyaa Allaah are those upon whom Allaah showers His blessings. . The Holy Qur'aan says in the 4th Soorah, An-Nisaa Verse 69:

…those whom Allaah [Ta’aalaa] has blessed viz. the Prophets (who teach), the Truthful, the Witnesses to The Truth (Martyrs and those who bear witness), and the Righteous (who do good)

Are the Auliyaa Allaah in this category of blessed ones or not? We ask in five salaah that Allaah (Almighty and Glorious is He) should keep us on their path. Keep on their path, methodology and pattern of belief. These Spiritual Orders ushered in the correct belief so keep on this path and do not be fooled by the distracters. We will send salutations on the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him, his family and his companions), pray to Allaah Kareem and present ourselves at the Mazaar and, as Maulana had mentioned, we will present our gifts.

[May Allaah be Pleased  with him]
At Ajmer Shareef
At that time the Tanwara Family were prominent in Delhi, whilst the Chohaan Clan controlled Ajmer, in Gujarat the Baderia Clan were prominent and the ruling king at Lahore was Khusrau Malak, the last of the stars of the Ghaznavi Dynasty.
The situation in India was such that many of the prominent kings, families and clans were becoming political rebels in their quest for power. The King of Delhi sent his nephew Pirthivi Raaj known as Rai Pathoraa to rule over Ajmer, since he had no children of his own. At that time, in Hindustaan, this area was the center of misbelief (kufr) and idol-worship. There were many temples in Ajmer, one of them being exclusively used by the King his wives and the ruling class. The poor were not allowed in this temple. The king, for the upkeep of this temple, donated the revenue of many villages. It is recorded that so many lamps burnt in that temple that daily large quantities of oil was utilized. Many were employed for is upkeep. So, Khawaajah Saahib came to settle in the hub of misbelief (kufr) and idol-worship. Khawaajah Saahib was about 52 years old [587 AH / 1191 AD] on arrival at Ajmer.





The Kings Elephants
Those who have been to Ajmer know that there is a Masjid called Auliyaa Masjid. This is where Khawaajah Saahib initially came and rested. This was the place where the king’s elephants used to rest. The elephants had been taken out to graze by the attendants or mahouts and when they returned they found Khawaajah Saahib and his followers resting at that spot. They asked Khawaajah Saahib to leave and he said that there was plenty of ground for them to sit and for the elephants to rest. They still insisted that he should leave and Khawaajah Saahib said, ‘Well! The elephants should sit.’
He moved away from there and they seated the elephants on that spot. The following day when the attendants tried to get the elephants to stand, they remained seated and could not get up. This was because Khawaajah Saahib had said that the elephants should remain seated on their spot. Despite much prompting the elephants refused to stand. The entire city was abuzz that this Faqeer had cast a spell on the elephants. A crowd gathered to see who was this Faqeer. The king got wind of what had occurred and he dispatched some of his men to ask Khawaajah Saahib to withdraw whatever spell he had cast or else the elephants would die of hunger. They came to Khawaajah Saahib and pleaded with him to withdraw whatever spell he had cast. Khawaajah Saahib replied, ‘I have not cast any spell, the attendants troubled me so I commanded the elephants to remain seated.’ They pleaded to Khawaajah Saahib saying that he could remain on the land and he asked them to go for the elephants would now get up. The elephants did indeed stand up and the people were amazed and the entire city spoke of what had transpired...to be continued In Shaa Allaah.
