Rasool Allah S.A.W. purified the hearts of people with his love, mercy and unselfishness; in the short span of 23 years, he fed over 100,00 people with the sweet syrup of Islam and intoxicated them with the beauty and splendor of Islam. By turning the hearts that were so cruel and hard that they did not feel any remorse or sorrow at burying daughters alive into soft hearts that became passionate and zealous about looking after and caring for orphan girls, Rasool Allah S.A.W. made obvious the fact that Islam is the true religion which contains goodness in each and every one of its commands.
Due to the fact that it was impossible for any Prophet to be sent after Rasool Allah S.A.W., as he was the final Prophet, Allah Taala used the blessed Companions Ridwanullahe Alaihim Ajmaeen to propagate the religion of Islam further. After them, the Tabieen took on this responsibility, followed by the Taba Tabieen. In short, the Khilafat was replaced by a monarchical system (Kings, Rulers etc), therefore, the work that was carried out by the Caliphs became weaker as the monarchical system gained strength. As Islam is a religion of goodness and kindness, those slaves of Allah Taala whom He had granted the crown of His friendship, jumped into the field of deeds and took on the responsibility of inviting those who had gone astray towards goodness. These blessed personalities served humanity with such purity, sincerity, unselfishness, and desired such goodness for them that people were so impressed with their beautiful characters, they began entering the folds of Islam for protection.
In the spiritual realm of Almighty Allah Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz R.A. occupies the most important and superior status. According to Islamic faith and belief there are two spiritual kings and crown makers in this world i.e Hazrat Ghousal Azam Dastagir R.A. of Baghdad of Iraq for the western hemisphere and Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty R.A.(Gharib Nawaz) of Ajmer of India for Eastern Hemisphere. These two Muslim saints represents the spiritual kingdom of the Creator i.e. Allah Pak.
It was a Hadees of Hazrat
Mohammed Mustafa S.A.W. predicted
“AKHRAJUL BAI HAQIYO, UN ABI
He fought no battle and fought no war but had to face great hardships and difficulties that even his companions were not affected. As their head he made them sale their boat very smoothly at the time of storms. This is his superiority and spiritual supremacy that enabled him to spread the message of Allah and his Prophet S.A.W. i.e. that is the message of love. Peace and brotherhood among all on this soil of ancient Aryans.
It was not Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty R.A. own decision to come to India, rather, Rasool Allah S.A.W. made him the King of India and sent him to the region of Ajmer. Before entering the border of India, he met a soldier from the army of Shahabuddin Ghauri, who was returning after being defeated by the army of Prithvi Raj. When the soldier realized that Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty R.A. was heading for Ajmer, he pleaded with him and said, “O Pious bondman of Allah! For Allah’s sake, do not go to Ajmer. We are just returning after being defeated by the army of Prithvi Raj, and I fear that they may treat you badly. Therefore, I request and plead with you not to go to Ajmer.” When Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty R.A. heard this plea, his zeal, and love of Allah Taala passionately proclaimed, “O soldier! Listen to me carefully. When you left for Ajmer, you put your trust in your swords and weapons, I am leaving with my trust in Allah Taala.”
In the eastern hemisphere, he is the one to introduce Islamic Sufism and he is the head and the supreme commander of Chishtia Order. It is according to His consent his blessings and according to His wishes that the Heads of the ruling government, kings, rulers come to power.
Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty R.A. may be the supreme spiritual head in the eastern hemisphere but he attracts visitors, pilgrims and followers from all over the world. His followers are from all the religions that is Muslims, Hindus, Christians, Sikh, Parsees etc and from all sects and classes, they could be rich or poor all are equal in his eyes. This is the most distinguished factor which make him distinct from others.
In just a short time, the world saw that this devotee, who was dressed in decaying clothes and was colored in the colors of Allah Taala, not only fragranced Ajmer with the sounds of glorifying the Lord, but lit the fire and passion of Islam in the hearts of hundreds of thousands of people. He proved that when worldly might is faced with spiritual strength, Allah Taala grants victory to those whose hearts ache with remembrance of Allah Taala, His Beloved Sallallaho Alaihi Wasallam, and betterment of the Ummah, just as He has stated in the Quran, “Undoubtedly, he attained to his goal who purified.”
Following these introductory words, let us look at the life, times, and biography of Sultan ul Hind, Khwaja e Khwaajgaan, Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti and fill our hearts with love, respect, and admiration for him.
