The Curtain Falls
From early childhood fasting and prayers
was His Holiness way of life which followed till the end.
His Holiness use to have little food in Sahri (food before
sunrise). Khwaja Abdul Raheem Abdul Rahman (R.A) a dearest
Khadim was incharge of His Holiness food and when he gave
more food to His Holiness by saying, "Makhdoom, you have
consumed very less food in Iftaar (evening food) go for little
more, so that you can retain vitality". Listening to
him, His Holiness with tears in his eyes and in heartfelt
and feeble voice said, "many destitutes and dervishes
lie hungry in the corners of mosques and on the platforms
of the shops. How can these morsels of food go down my throat?"
His Holiness suffered from piles growth,
ill health, fever and cataract development but never spared
himself of his duties nor neglected his prayers.
According to Hazrat Khwaja Burhanuddin Ghareeb
(R.A) in "Nafasul Anfas", it is said that:
"His Holiness never neglected the Obligatory prayers
nor lenient to the Supererogatory services, despite protracted
illness. His Holiness use to offer few "Rakats"
of Namaz, then rested for a while and then continued."
His Holiness suffered ribs infection for
over a month which made him bed-ridden and very weak. His
Holiness use to enquire about Namaz time, and say, "did
I offer it"? His attendants reminded him of his offerings
and again His Holiness use to offer once more. He was true
to Almighty Allah till the last breath.
Before he left his body His Holiness called
his relatives, disciples and his attendants and said to Hazrat
Iqbal, (a close attendant and also incharge of Langer Khana)
that "distribute all the grains from the stores to the
poor and needy. The whole store and house should be seedless".
It was early morning of 18th Rabiul
Sani 725 A.H./1325 A.D. before the sun rose in the blue sky-the
luminary light of Islam and manifestations of Godís secret
service on earth was put off. Hazrat Shaikh Ruknuddin Multani
(R.A) offered and led the last prayers (Namaz Janaza) of the
most beloved of the True Lord, His Holiness Mehboob-e-Elahi
(R.A). It was the reign of Sultan Mohd Shah Tughlaq. Unfortunately
Hazrat Amir Khusro was not in Delhi and when he came from
Oudh and heard the news of His Holiness, he was utterly shocked
His Holiness had told his men that, "Let
Khusro not reach my grave, if so, in his love my grave will
crack and he will get into it."
