The festival commemorates the martyrdom of the
prophet Mohammed's grandson- Hazrat Imam Hussein. It is celebrated with
great fervour by the Muslims especially the Shia community. Tazias,
glittering replicas of the Martyr's tomb, are carried in procession
through the streets. The Tazias of Lucknow and Hyderabad are noted for
their splendour. In places like Lucknow, Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, grand
scale processions are held. People beat their chest in mourning to the
tune of beating drums and chants 'Ya Hussain'. Devotees beat themselves
and inflict wounds on their own bodies.

This festival starts
at the 1st day of Muharram and lasts for 10 days until 10th of
Muharram. Muharram is the first month of Islamic calendar.

During this
month, while on a journey, Hazrat Imam Hussain, his family members and
a number of his followers were surrounded by the forces of Yazid, the
Muslim ruler of the time. During the siege, they were deprived of food
and water and many of them were put to death. The incident happened at
a place called Karbala in Iraq in 61st year after Hijra. This dispute
was result of a disagreement among Muslims on the question of
succession after the demise of Hazrat Ali, the fourth caliph.

Some sects of Muslims hold meetings where speeches are made on the
happenings of Karbala and on the lives of martyrs. The Shias, however,
observe this festival in a different fashion. As Muharram, the first
month of the Muslim year, approaches, they put on black clothes, as
black is regarded as a colour of mourning. Majalis (assemblies) are
held every day during the first nine days where Shia orators relate the
incident of the martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain and his party in a
great detail. On the 10th day of Muharram, large processions are formed
and the devoted followers parade the streets holding banners and
carrying models of the mausoleum of Hazrat Imam Hussain and his people,
who fell at Karbala. They show their grief and sorrow by inflicting
wounds on their own bodies with sharp metal tied to chain with which
they scourge themselves. This is done in order to depict the sufferings
of the martyrs. It is a sad occasion and everyone in the procession
chants "Ya Hussain", with loud wails of lamentation. Generally a white
horse beautifully decorated for the occasion, is also included in the
procession, to mark the empty mount of Hazrat Imam Husain after his

During these first ten days of Muharram, drinking
posts are also set up temporarily by the Shia community where water and
juices are served to all, free of charge.

Wali ولی

The Saint. The Friend of God. With the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, the Nabuwat (Prophecy) was finsihed but God chooses some people out of Prophet's nation who spread the message of Islam. They are always present in every age. There are many pre-Islamic Wali Allahs as well who are also mentioned in Koran i.e., The People of the Cave; Al Khidhr; Luqman. Some of them are Mystics and Sufis, and some are Teachers of profound abilities of delevering Hadiths, Koran, and Fiq (Islamic Law). Normally this Sainthood or Willayat is transfered from heart-to-heart i.e., Teacher-pupil relationship. It cannot be learnt by reading Books and listening the Speeches. But, it does sometimes transfer in the presence of another Wali Allah, whose intension is enough to transfer the ocean of Waillayt into the heart. They are not just a normal human beings, but are of mystical potence. Some of them get the instructions directly from the Holy Soul of Prophet, Peace be upon Him. They are active even after their deaths.


History of Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari (R.A.)

There have been several saints who have traveled from far and wide to India, spreading the word of Islam like Khwaja Gareeb Nawaz (R.A.) and many other saints who migrated to India from the Arab countries and Persia. They came as and when informed by their own intuition or will or as per the instructions of Prophet Mohamed (S.A.W.S. - Peace Be Upon Him) as envisioned in their dreams or by Ilm (Wisdom of Faith) i.e. as pointed out by spiritual power given to them by Allah (S.W.T).

The spread of Islam as a whole in India is a story of the gradual growth of the Islamic religion essentially through various itinerant Sufi Saints and traders who settled amongst the local indigenous population. 

A magnificent example of such spread of Islam by an Iranian Saint is that of Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari (R.A.). It is a belief of the Muslims that the holy saints who sacrifice and devote their lives in the way of Allah (S.W.T) are immortal. Their stature is equivalent to that of the Martyrs (Shaheed) as they have renounced their worldly lives for Allah (S.W.T.) and are called Shahadat-e-Huqmi.

There are many miracles that have happened during the life of Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari (R.A.) and after his death. Whatever is known about Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari (R. A.) is learnt from the caretakers and trustees from generation to generation as the Saint never married and has no descendents. Some people tried to portray themselves as his descendants or heirs and have destroyed the exact history of the Saint, his Tomb and the Dargah.

It is learnt from "Rivayat" (Legends) that Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari (R.A.) was sitting at some lonely place in his hometown and was busy in his prayers when a lady passed-by from there crying and screaming. When the Saint enquired about her crying, she pointed to an empty vessel in her hand and said that she had dropped some oil. And if she goes home without the oil her husband would beat her. She was crying in need of help. The Saint asked her to be calm and went with her to the place where the oil had been dropped. He then took the vessel from the wailing lady and pushed the earth with his thumb. The oil came out like a fountain and the vessel was full. The Saint gave her the vessel with oil and she went away happily.

However, after that, the Saint was troubled by dreams of having wounded the earth by striking it in this manner. Full of remorse and grief from that day he became very serious and was not keeping well. Then with the permission of his mother he traveled to India with his brother and finally reached the shores of Mumbai – near Worli or at some place opposite the present tomb. His brother went back to their native place. Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari (R.A.) sent a letter with him to their mother informing her that he was keeping good health and that he had decided to reside at that place permanently for the spread of Islam and that she should forgive him.

Till his death he was praying and giving knowledge about Islam to the people and devotees regularly visiting him. Before his death he has advised his followers that they should not bury Him at any proper place or graveyard and should drop his shroud ('kafan') in the ocean such that it should be buried by the people where it is found. His wish was obeyed by his followers. That is why the Dargah Sharief is built at the very site where his shroud came to rest in the middle of the sea where it was perched on a small mound of rocks rising above the sea. The Tomb and Dargah Sharief were built in the years to come.

On his way from Baluchistan to Sindh, he also stayed in present day Karachi's Manghopir area for muraqba (meditation), and it is said that Manghopir's natural warm fountain is a miracle of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar. That warm fountain started to flow from beneath the hill, on which Lal Shahbaz sat for muraqba (meditation). After passing hundreds of years, that warm fountain is still flowing continuously and is said to have miraculous healing power especially for asthma patients.
In Multan, Lal Shahbaz met Bahauddin Zachariah Multani of the Suhurwardiya order, Baba Farid Ganjshakar of Chishtiya order, and Makhdoom Jahanian Surkh Bukhari. The attachment was so cordial and spiritual that their friendship became legendary. They were known as Chahar Yar (

His annual
Urs (death anniversary celebration) is held on the 18 Sha'aban - the eighth month of theMuslim lunar calendar
. Thousands of devotees flock to the tomb while every Thursday their number stands multiplied especially at the time of his ‘Urs’ being a carnival as well a religious festival and celebrated every year. Sehwan springs to life and becomes the focal point of more than half a million pilgrims from all over Pakistan. On each morning of the three day feast, the narrow lanes of Sewhan are packed to capacity as thousands and thousands of pilgrims, fakirs and devotees make their way to the shrine to commune with the saint, offer their tributes and make a wish. Most of the people present garlands and a green chadar (a cloth used to cover a tomb) with Qur’anic inscriptions in silver or gold threads. Humming of verses, singing and dancing in praise of the saint continues till late at night. A devotional dance known as ‘dhamal’, being a frenzied and ecstatic swirl of the head and body, is a special ritual that is performed at the rhythmic beat of the [dhol] (a big barrel-shaped drum), some of them being of giant size and placed in the courtyard of the shrine. Bells, gongs, cymbals and horns make a thunderous din, and the dervishes, clad in long robes, beads, bracelets and colored head-bands whirl faster and faster in a hypnotic trance, until with a final deafening scream they run wildly through the doors of the shrine to the courtyard beyond.

Qalandar Rabia Basri Qalandar

Rabia Basri Qalandar.

Rabia Al Adawiya was born in Basra, Iraq, She came from a poor family and was the fourth daughter thus she was named ''Rabia'' meaning the Fourth.

A famous story from her birth was that there was no Oil lamp to light the house so her father who truly trusted (Tawakkul) in Allah to the extent that he vowed that he would not beg from anyone and would only ask from Allah was sent by Rabia's mother to ask for a lamp, He went outside and pretended to go to the neighbours house but returned empty handed. Being saddened that he could not even provide for his new born, Rabia's father became thoughful and sad.

At night he was blessed to see the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in a dream who told him that his daughter is the friend of Allah (Wali Allah) and will she will guide many people to Islam. The Prophet then instructed him to go the Amir of Basra and convey to him this message that every night you recite Salutions (Darood Shareef) upon me 100 times at night and 400 times on the Thursday night, However as you have not recited last Thursday you shall have to compensate by giving 400 dinars to the bearer.

After seeing the dream Rabia's Father was delighted and emotional he hurried to the Amir of Basra and conveyed the message from the Prophet the Amir was delighted to know that he was in the sight of the Prophet and gave 1000 Dinars to the poor and paid Rabia's Father 400 dinars and instructed him to come again if he needed help as he was the beloved of Allah.

Due to a famine in Basra which made Rabia a orphan she was kidnapped while in a Caravan and sold in the market as a slave she used to do all chores and keep fasts in the day and at night remember Allah and pray, Then one night her master was awokened to see light above Rabia's head he become shocked that he was keeping a saint as a slave and called her in the morning and set her free and seeked forgiveness.

From then on Rabia went to solitude and seclusions and prayed in the wildernesses and deserts, She approached Allah by herself without a teacher or guide and sacrificed her whole being in love and awe. She kept little possessions and had a Brick as a pillow, A broken jug to do ablutions, and a mat to pray on.

She was the first to introduce that Allah should be worshipped out of love and not fear, She had many diciples and followers and had many proposals for marraige that she rejected even a proposal from the Amir of Basra himself She rejected due to that she had no time and no ''Other'' in her heart except Allah.

Her most Famous poem is given below:
"O Allah! If I worship You for fear of Hell, burn me in Hell,
and if I worship You in hope of Paradise, exclude me from Paradise.
But if I worship You for Your Own sake,
grudge me not Your everlasting Beauty.''

Rabia always stressed on repentance and how it is a mercy from god, As only the one who god gives a chance can repent.

Her Miracles:

One day Hazrat Hasan Basri saw Hazrat Rabia near a lake. He threw his prayer rug on top of the water and said: "Rabia come! Let us pray two raka'ts here." She replied: "Hasan, why you are showing off your spiritual power?, She threw her prayer rug into the air and flew up onto it and said "Come up here, Hasan, where people can see us." Then she said: "Hasan, what you did fishes can do, and what I did flies can do. But the real Power is outside these Miracles One must apply oneself to Allah alone.

Once Hazrat Rabia was on her way to Makka, and when half-way there she saw the Kaa'ba coming to meet her and she said "It is the Lord of the house whom I need, what have I to do with the house? I need to meet with Allah who says, Who so approaches me by a span's length i will approach him by the length of a cubit. The Kaa'ba which i see has no power over me what joy does the beauty of the Kaa'ba bring to me?"

At the same time the great Sufi Saint Hazrat Ibrahim bin Adham arrived at the Kaa'ba, He spent fourteen years making his way to the Kaa'ba because in every place of prayer he had performed two raka'ts of prayer

Hazrat Ibrahim bin Adham seeing that the Kaaba was not there said: " What has happened it maybe that some injury has overtaken my eyes.?" An unseen voice said to him: "No harm has befallen your eyes, but the Kaa'ba has gone to meet a woman, who is approaching this place." Ibrahim Adham said: " Who is this woman?" He being suprised saw Rabia coming and the Kaa'ba was back in its own place, when Ibrahim saw that, he said: "O Rabia, what is this disturbance and trouble which you have brought into the world?"

She replied: "I have not brought disturbance into the world, it is you who have disturbed the world, because you delayed fourteen years in arriving at the Kaa'ba." He remarked "Yes I have spent fourteen years in crossing the desert because i was in prayer." Rabia said: "You traversed it in ritual prayer (Salat) but with personal supplication (you did not think about anyone else)." Then, having performed the pilgrimage, she returned to Basra and occupied herself with spiritual exercises.

May Allah bless Rabia Qalandar and make her a intercessor for us. Ameen

Qalandar Bu-Ali Shah Qalandar

His name was Sheikh Sharf Uddin and Bu-Ali Shah the title. His father, 
Sheikh Fakhar Uddin was a great scholar and saint of his time. The mother, 
Bibi Hafiza Jamal, was the daughter of Maulana Syed Nemat Ullah Hamdani. 
His father came from Iraq in the year 600 Hijri and settled down in Panipat. 
His lineage with several links reached Hazrat Imam Abu Hanifa. 
He was born in 606 Hijri in Panipat.
He completed his studies at an early age and taught near the Qutub Minar in Delhi 
for 20 years. He was counted among renowned scholars and top-ranking teachers 
regarded him with respect.
Once during the studies he was lost in absorption and wonder. He got up and threw all the books into the river and trudged into the forest and busied in prayer and meditation there.
He undertook severe penance and meditation, stood in a state of absorption for several days in water till the fish ate away flesh form his calves. One day he was engaged in meditation, a voice he heard. It said, "Sharf Uddin, we granted you your prayer say, what do you want?" He said, "I need none save you. I will give away my life in love while standing at this place." The voice again descended, "Get out of water, you have to do much for us." He replied, "I will not emerge myself from the river of love. If you want it, then do it." Saying this he was lost again. He witnessed, in the state, that a saint appeared and lifted him out of the river and placed him on the bank.
Several chroniclers opine that the saint was Hazrat Ali himself. He taught him some divine secrets and disappeared. From that day he was regularly lost in spiritual wonderment. His heart was filled with heavenly light. From that day he was call Boo-Ali Shah. Still some chroniclers say that he did not pledge obedience to a holy man but was admitted directly into the fold by Hazrat Ali. Some link him to the Mahboob-e-Ilahi whereas others bind him to Hazrat Qutub Uddin Bakhtiyar Ka'aki and Sheikh Shabu Uddin Suharawardy.
He lived in Panipat till death and served the people form there. Hundreds drew spiritual or divine benefits from him. Besides, he undertook to regular teaching and propagation of Islam. Hundreds embraced Islam because of him.  The Rajputs, who lived around, were the great beneficiaries. He left a deep impact on the royal dynasty of Delhi, and preached them of good conduct.One day a disciple of Shamsuddin Turk went to the city on an errand and saw Boo Ali Shah riding a lion and retold the episode to his teacher.
Shamsuddin Turk said to his disciple, "Go to the residence of Boo Ali Shah and if you see him riding the lion, tell him: "The lion should live in the jungle." The disciple obeyed, found Hazrat Boo Ali Shah in the condition and conveyed his teacher's message. He rose from his place immediately and went to Ghote. 
Death- It is mentioned in 'Sair-Ul-Akhtab' that he died on 17, Ramazul Mubarak 724 Hijri at Budha Khera but lay to rest in Panipat instead.


PIR, SAYYID ABU MUHAMMAD ABDUL QADIR JEELANI, may Allah be pleased with him,

was born in Naif in the District of Gilan, in Persia in the month of Ramadhan in the year 470 A.H. (1077 CE). His father's name was Hazrat Abu Salih, a God-fearing man and a direct descendant of Hazrat Imam Hasan (R.A.), the eldest son of Hazrat Ali (R.A.), and of Sayyida Fatima (R.A.). His mother was the daughter of a saintly person, Sayyid Abdullah Sawmai who was a direct descendant of Imam Husain (R.A.), the younger son of Hazrat Ali (R.A.) and Sayyida Fatima (R.A.).

Hazrat Ghaus Al-Azam (R.A.) lost his father at an early age. He was brought up and given elementary education by his venerable maternal grandfather and mother. When he was 17 years old, he was sent to Baghdad for higher studies. In Baghdad, a great centre of Islamic learning in those days, Hazrat became the favourite pupil of ALLAMA ABU ZAKARIYYA TABREZI (R.A.), Principal of the Jamia Nizamiah. He studied there for 8 years and acquired mastery in all branches of learning.

Having completed his education, Hazrat set out to acquire spiritual training. He spent many years, undergoing the rigours of spiritual life, and passing his time in meditation and search of truth and Allah. He, at last became a disciple of HAZRAT SHEIKH QAZI ABU SAEED MUBARAK

MUKHARRAMI (R.A.), a renowned saint of his time. Hazrat settled down in Baghdad and devoted
the rest of his life to the service of Islam and mankind. His lectures enriched by his worldly education
and spiritual training attracted large gatherings, numbering 70 to 80 thousand people at a time.
His writings are as effective and remarkable as his books. His 'Fatuh Al-Ghaib' (The Revelations of
the Unseen), is a remarkable book on Tasawwuf. It was translated by Hazrat Shah Abdul Haq
Muhaddith Dehlvi (r.a.) into Persian and by several scholars into Urdu and English. His other well-
known book'Ghuny at - ul-Tal ib e en ' has also been translated into Urdu and English. It is a
comprehensive book dealing with the principles of Shariah and Tariqat. His third book'Fath Al-
Rabbani' contains summaries of his lectures and discourses.

Hazrat Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jeelani (R.A.) passed a simple, pious and regulated life. He spent his days in preaching the true principles of Islam and the nights in prayer and meditation. His life was a model of simplicity, selflessness and truthfulness. He was kind to the common people and translated into practice the saying of the Holy Prophet of Islam (peace be upon him.):''The best person is one
who loves and serves mankind most.''
The greatest of all divines and mystic saints of Islam breathed his last on the 11th Rabi-us-Thani,
561 A.H., 1166 CE at the age of 91 years. His death cast a gloom over the world of Islam but his life
and teachings will ever illuminate the hearts of Muslims and non-Muslims
