conquered Bilgiraam and turned
the hearts of many towards Islam,

Tamish was very pleased and gave
Bilgiraam to him as his property.

his family to Bilgiraam.

various Silsilas.
IBAADAT:
He kept fast for 26 years. He used
to fast for the entire day, and make
iftaar with one Khajoor (date). His
condition of Roohaniyah was such
that for three years, he only ate
minimum food and lived only off
the water strained from the rice.
He would be in spiritual ecstasy for
weeks on end and he used to be
completely out of contact with the
material world and that, which is
within it. He would spend lengthy
nights in the Ibaadat of Allah.’ It
was his manner, that he recited the
Holy Quran after Zohar Salaah. He
would only stop on hearing the
Azaan of Asr Salaah. He would be
engrossed in wazifas from Fajr
Salaah right up to the time of
Ishraaq. He used to go to the
Madrassah at the time of Chasht
and teach all his students and
devotees that were present at the
time. Between Asr and Maghrib, he
showered his spiritual blessings
upon those present.

Hazrat Shah Fazlullah (Radi ALLAHu
Ta’ala Anho).

his time. This quality of his was
more evident than anything else.

cause of the Ahle Sunnat Wa
Jamaat. He filled many empty
hearts with the love of Allah and
His Rasool (Sallallaho Alaihi wa

History etc. He was also a poet and
a dynamic orator. His lectures and
words of wisdom brought hundreds

the folds of Islam. for thirty years
he did not move from his position
of being the Sajaada Nasheen. He

complete responsibility. He used to
make jihad against his desires and

physical breaths in a day.

ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho) arrived in

exercises which took place from

Northern Province of India. It is a
town of Ulama, Awliyah and Sufis.

of Huzoor (Sallallaho Alaihi wa
Aalihi wa Sallam) and Hazrat Ghaus-
e-Azam (Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho)
who commanded him to live in
Mahrerah Shareef, in the area
where the Khanqah-e-Barkaatiyah
is today. A house was then
constructed for Hazrat and he lived
therein. Hazrat then summoned the
rest of his family to join him in
Marehrah Shareef. Due to Hazrat’s
arrival in Marehrah Shareef, people
from all over began to live in and
around Marehrah Shareef. By 1118
Hijri, there was a complete
population of people living around
the Khanqah Shareef.
THE BLESSINGS OF HUZOOR GHAUS-
E-AZAM (Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho):
He had great love and respect for
Huzoor Ghaus-e-Azam Jilani (Radi
ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho). Even though
he was blessed with the Ijaazat and
Khilaafat of five silsilas, he entered
his mureeds into the Qaaderi Silsila
and he paid more attention to the
Qaaderi order. He attained a very
exalted glad tiding from the
Darbaar of Huzoor Ghaus-e-Azam
(Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho). Huzoor
Ghaus-e-Azam (Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala
Anho) said, ‘I am responsible for
the intercession of those mureeds
linked to your khandaan. I will not
enter Jannat, until I do not enter
the mureeds and those linked to
your Khandaan into Jannat.
