Divine Graces of His Holiness Sultan-ul-Mashaikh (R.A.)
(5) According to Hazrat Makhdoom Saheb
(R.A) once a devotee of His Holiness, Hazrat Sultan-ul-Mashaikh
(R.A) who was Turk, came with one hundred gold coins for
the ziarat. He offer all the gold coins to His Holiness.
But His Holiness refused. The Turk became upset and insisted
on it. At last, His Holiness took only one gold coin. But
the Turk still persuaded His Holiness to take all the coins.
His Holiness replied, "Look at Yamuna River"! When the Turk
looked at the Yamuna river he saw that the river is full
of gold. The Turk bowed down at the feet of the Great Sufi
Saint. His Holiness told him, not to tell this to any one.
But after coming out from the Khanqah, the Turk narrated
it to all the disciples.
(6) Hazrat Makhdoom Nasiruddin Chiragh
Dehlavi (R.A) speaks that he and Hazrat Qazi Mohiuddin Kashani
(R.A) were present in the assembly of His Holiness, Hazrat
Sultan-ul-Mashaikh (R.A). One Ruknuddin Firdousi had sent
his three murids to invite His Holiness for dinner at the
Fateha of Hazrat Shaikhul Alam Baba Fariduddin Ganje Shankar
(R.A). While on the way one of the three murid said, "if
Hazrat Mehboobe-Elahi (R.A) is a great Saint, then he will
give me something to eat"? And another murid said, "he will
give me clothes", and the third murid said, "Taking examination
of the great Saint is not good and is a dishonour of the
respected Saint". On reaching the place, the three murids
gave invitation for dinner on behalf of their Peer to His
Holiness. His Holiness said that "I cannot go, because today
I am arranging food and Niaz of my Peer, Hazrat Shaikhul
Alam Saheb (R.A). But however my heart is towards you!"
Immediately some devotee brought curd and Four Rupees before
the Great Saint. His Holiness ordered one of his Khadim
(devotee) to give the first murid – curd and two Rupees
and said, "You wanted something to eat". To another murid,
His Holiness said, "You need clothes, give him clothes"
and to the third murid, His Holiness said, "Like you every
one has to come. Give him the balance two Rupees". Thus
all the three murid were send off with full satisfaction.
(7) In the book of Siyar-ul-Arfin,
Hazrat Makhdoom Saheb writes that a Moulvi lived in a village
Sarsada. His house was destroyed by fire and everything
was reduced to ashes. He came to the King’s Darbar for Shahi
Farman,–which he got with great struggle and difficulty
after few months. While on his way back, he lost it again.
He was very much upset and though of His Holiness’s Khanqah.
He came and bowed down before the Great Saint and requested
His Holiness for pray and Tawiz. His Holiness replied, "You
first make Niyat for arranging the Nazar for his Peer, Hazrat
Baba Farid Ganje Shakar (R.A)". Moulvi readily agreed. His
Holiness said now go to the market and bring halwa for Nazar.
As he went to the sweets shop, he saw that the shopkeeper
was giving him halwa in the same Shahi Farman, which he
had been looking for! He became very happy and offered his
Nazar and did Qadambossi (kissing the feet) of the great
(8) Hazrat Moulana Badruddin (R.A) (the
Khalifa of His Holiness) says that one night he saw one
camel coming at the Khanqah Gate, of His Holiness, Hazrat
Sultan-ul-Mashaikh (R.A). He further saw that His Holiness
came and sat on the camel and flew in the sky. He was utterly
surprised at the scene. He could not sleep the whole night.
At the end of night, he saw that the camel coming back with
His Holiness at the Khanqah Gate. He saw His Holiness coming
down from the camel and entering the Khanqah Sharif.
Hazrat Shaikh Najmuddin Asfahani (R.A)
was also a great Saint, who lived for sixty years in Holy
Khane Kaba. Some residents of the Khane Kaba enquired from
Shaikh Najmuddin Asfahani (R.A) that His Holiness, Hazrat
Sultan-ul-Mashaikh (R.A) is a great Saint, why does he not
come for the ziarat at the Holy Khane Kaba and perform Haj?
Hazrat Asfahani (R.A) replied that, "I have seen His Holiness
Hazrat Mehboobe-Elahi (R.A) many times performing Fajar
Namaz at Khane-Kaba, with me".
May be, the camel being an angel, who took
His Holiness, Hazrat Mehboobe-Elahi (R.A) at Khane-Kaaba!
(9) One devotee of His Holiness, Hazrat
Sultan-ul-Mashaikh (R.A) says that once he was coming to
Delhi to meet His Holiness. On the way to village Bundi,
he met one Saint, Shaikh Mohan. Shaikh Mohan asked the devotee,
where are you going? The devotee said that he is going for
the ziarat (visitation) of His Holiness. Shaikh Mohan then
asked the devotee to convey his "salam" to Hazrat Sultan-ul-Mashaikh
(R.A) and further said that, "I meet him on every Friday
night at holy Khana-Kaaba". The devotee came to His Holiness
and conveyed Shaikh Saheb’s "salam" and message. After hearing
this, His Holiness became angry and replied, "Shaikh is
a good Saint, but he has no control over his tongue".
(10) Once, few friends out of curiosity
and regard went to meet His Holiness. One of them had no
faith in His Holiness and refused to accompany them. On
persuasion of his friends he agreed unwillingly. On the
way they bought sweets and flowers but the ‘faithless’ friend
took up some dust and wrapped it in a piece of paper to
test His Holiness spiritual powers. When they met all this
was placed before His Holiness. As the helper was removing
the sweets, flowers and paper, His Holiness pointed towards
the wrapper of dust: "Don’t take away this wrapper; it contains
the special surma (collyrium) for my eyes". The ‘faithless’
friend could not raise his eyes before His Holiness and
fell on His Holiness feet and became his ‘mureed’ thereafter."
