Hadrat Sayyiduna Khawaja Nizaamudeen Awliyah – may Allah be pleased with him – is famously known as “Mehboob-e-Ilaahi”.

 

It is mentioned that once he was travelling to Lahore to take up the position of Qadi or Chief Justice. However, on the road, he passed by a Majzub who asked, “”O Nizaamudeen! Where are you going?”

 

Hadrat Sayyiduna Khawaja Nizaamudeen Awliyah – may Allah be pleased with him – replied that he was going to accept the position of Qadi.

 

However, the Mazjub mentioned to him, “Do not become a Qadi, become something else.”

 

When Hadrat Sayyiduna Khawaja Nizaamudeen Awliyah – may Allah be pleased with him – asked this Majzub where he should go, he was told to go Ajudan. This was the ancient name of Pakpatan Shareef. When he entered the court of his eminent Shaikh, Hadrat Sayyiduna Baba Fareed – may Allah be pleased with him, he was welcomed and also informed that the great Shaikh had waited for him for many days. He was then trained and achieved a very lofty state in the ranks of the Awliyah. The great Saint also handed him a few coins so that he could also be able to support himself. However, when Hadrat Sayyiduna Khawaja Nizaamudeen Awliyah – may Allah be pleased with him – received these coins, he began aware of the actual state of the blessed family of the great Master.

 

The eminent Master, Hadrat Sayyiduna Baba Fareed – may Allah be pleased with him, had two sons of his own. One of his sons had passed away from hunger and the other son was also close to death. When Hadrat Nizaamudeen Awliyah – may Allah be pleased with him – heard about this, he bought some grain and fed the young man. From that moment until today, the langar of the great Saint continues. This was the Barakah of those few coins. He also managed to buy some food and feed everyone who was present.

 

Hadrat Nizaamudeen Awliyah’s – may Allah be pleased with him – full name is Mohammed bin Ahmed bin Ali Bukhari and some of his titles are, “Sultaanul Mashaa’ikh”, “Sultaanul Awliyah” and “Sultaanus Salaateen”. He is among the eminent successors of Hadrat Sayyiduna Baba Fareed – may Allah be pleased with him – and his family heralds from Hadrat Sayyiduna Ali – may Allah be pleased with him. His family tree is, Nizaamudeen Awliyah, bin Syed Ahmed Ahmed bin Syed Ali bin Syed Mohammed Abdullah bin Syed Hasan bin Syed Ali Asghar bin Syed Abdullah bin Syed Ahmed bin Syed Jafer bin Syed Imam Ali Haadi bin Imam Taqi Al Jawwad bin Imam Ali Moosa Raza bin Imam Ali Moosa Kaazim bin Imam Jafer Saadiq bin Imam Mohammed Baqir bin Imam Zainul Aabideen bin Imam Husain bin Ameerul Mo’mineen Hadrat Sayyiduna Ali – may Allah be pleased with them all.
