"QARAMAT"

By the grace of Allah the Prophets are bestowed with different kind of powers and by the beneficence of the Prophets the Saints are also bestowed with marvels, therefore they can also cure a lot of things. All recognized religions of the world show that divine preaching and miracles have always been co-related and all the prophet, Saints, messenger of God and founder of various world religions were endorsed with supernatural powers to propagate the divine message.

Gharib Nawaz (R.A) as one of the Wallie of Allah, was also endowed with such "Supernatural powers to propagate the divine message for this, I would say that his full life right from his birth till death was full of miracles. He did whatever, he wanted and the almighty always granted him blessing without any delay and if we discuss in deep about his miracles this full website will get completed in miracles only so I am writing few of his miracles.

                        1. As is evident from his life history Khawaja Moinuddin is reported to have performed two Haj pilgrimages to Mecca before coming out to India. But the Hajis (pilgrims who visit Mecca during the Haj) who undertook pilgrimage to Mecca during Khawaja Sahib's stay in Ajmer bore evidence to the fact on their return to Indian that they saw the great saint in Mecca personally during the Haj every year. It was indeed one of his marvelous miracles. How could he do this feat in the absence of any modern means of transport 700 years ago, is a mystery beyond human perception and yet it is a fact corroborated by eye witness and history. During the Haj period, he was seen both in Ajmer and Mecca.

                        2. One day Hazrat Khawaja Moinuddin was passing through a street of Ajmer with his attendant Sheikh Ali. Suddenly a creditor of Sheikh Ali appeared on the scene and, holding him by his garment insisted upon the payment of his debt in a very insolent manner. Pleading on behalf of his attendant, the Great Khawaja assured the creditor that his debt would now be paid soon and requested him to let Sheikh Ali go for the time being. But the creditor would not allow the attendant to move until his money was paid on the spot. This obduracy at last invoked Khawaja Sahib's proverbial sympathy for human shortcomings. In a state of 'jazba' (intense feeling) he took off his 'Chadar' (the wrapper which he wore) and flung the same on to the ground. And as soon as the 'Chadar' was flung, it was covered with a big heap of precious silver and gold coins. The Khawaja Sahib then asked the creditor, "Please take away your debt, counting honestly as much as it is due to you, from this heap but be careful not to pick up even a single coin more than what is your legitimate due." Overpowered by greed at the sight of such a vast wealth, the creditor mischievously thought of picking up more than what was actually due to him. But as soon as he stretched his hand towards the money with this evil intention, it dried up and his arm became as stiff as an iron rod. The creditor and the onlookers were wonder-struck at this awful experience. Realizing his guilt, the creditor fell at the feet of the great saint and begged for mercy. The Khawaja Sahib accepted the man's apology with his characteristic benevolence and prayed to God for the restoration of his arm to its normal condition.

                        3. When Khwaja Gareeb Nawaz went to Sabzwar from Hiraat, he learnt that the Ruler was a Shia and a tyrant, who would kill people who named their children Abu Bakr or 'Umar. Khwaja Gareeb Nawaz learnt that he was very bigoted; his name was Yaadgar Mirza, and the place where he was staying also belonged to the Ruler. Many people asked Khwaja Gareeb Nawaz not to sit there as the Ruler was a great tyrant, but Khwaja Gareeb Nawaz paid no attention to them. Suddenly, the Ruler arrived there with great pomp and fanfare. He wanted to forbid Khwaja Gareeb Nawaz from sitting there but as soon as he laid eyes on him, he fell unconscious. A state and feeling of terror and fear overcame not only him, rather upon all his colleagues and employees that were with him. None of the other people had the courage or audacity to move, but Khwaja Gareeb Nawaz was very kind hearted and compassionate. He got up and sprinkled water on the face of the Ruler, who then regained consciousness. He repented and begged for forgiveness; all his colleagues, servants, etc. also repented and became disciples of Khwaja Gareeb Nawaz. Yaadgar Mirza repented and furthermore gave all of his wealth, riches, and possessions in the path of Allah Ta'ala, as well as freeing all the slaves and handmaids. Look at the Grace and Blessings of Allah Ta'ala and His religion that a person, whose book of deeds was completely black, joined the groups of Angels in a split second; an enemy became a friend, and gained spiritual discipleship (Khilafat) and became a great Friend of Allah Ta'ala in Hiraat.

                        4. One day, 'mureed' (disciple) of Khawaja Sahib came to him and complained, "Sir, the governor of the city has made my life most miserable by intolerable harassment so much so that today he has order my banishment from the city." The Khawaja Sahib replied, "But where is he now, he has already been punished by God?" When the man returned to his home, he heard the news of the governor's sudden death due to a fall from his horse while hunting.

                        5. Once a person appeared before Hazrat Khawaja Sahib and pretended to say that he was eager to pay his homage to the great saint on that particular day. The Khawaja Sahib replied "Here I am, but first fulfil your promise that brings you here". The man began to tremble with the idea that his secret was out before he could act and, admitting his guilt, he at once offered his profound apologies. As a matter of fact, this man was a hireling of some of the enemies of Hazrat Khawaja and had come with theprecise intention of murdering the holy saint, a fact which the great saint came to know by his intuitive powers. The man prayed for the pardon of the saint who forgave him magnanimously. The men then embraced Islam and became one of the devoted `mureeds' of Khawaja Moinuddin for the rest of his life.

                            6. One day Khawaja Moinuddin Chishty was sitting on the bank of the Ana-sagar lake at Ajmer. A shepherd-boy happened to pass before him with a herd of young cows who had not yet acquired their maturity. The Khawaja Sahib asked the boy for some milk from his herd. The boy took it to be a joke and said, "Baba they are all young calf of immature age; they do not yield any milk at this age." The Khawaja Sahib smiled and, pointing towards a young cow, said, "I would like to drink the milk of that cow, go and milk her." The boy obeyed rather hesitatingly. When he went to milk this particular cow, he was simply astonished to find her teats fully developed and over-flowing with milk. The boy filled several receptacles with milk which 40 persons drank to their full satisfaction. He was so much impressed by this strange miracle that he became great devotee of Khawaja Sahib.

                            7. One day a waiting old woman came to Hazrat Khawaja Moinuddin who was busy with his 'wazoo' (ablution). The woman complained that the governor of the city had murdered her son without any fault and that she had come to him to beg for justice. The Khawaja Sahib, after finishing with his 'wazoo' picked up his 'asa-e-mubarak' (holy staff) and went out with the old lady to go to the place where the murdered corpse of her son was lying. His close devotees also followed him in attendance. The Khawaja Sahib placed the severed heard in its proper position on the body of themurdered young man and prayed to the Almighty God, "O Allah, if this man was murdered with any fault, then grant him his life". After this prayer, the Khawaja Sahib put his staff on the corpse and said, "Get up by the command of Allah if you are innocent." The young man got up, hale and hearty, and the next moment both he and his old mother fell down at the feet of the great saint of Ajmer in solemn gratitude

                            8. It said that once Khwaja Sahib (R.A) was passing through a Jungle, some atheist dacoits came in his way. They used to snatch belonging of travelers and if the traveler was a Muslim they used to kill him as well. When these decoits faced Khwaja Sahib (R.A), there happened a miracle, The band of decoits who had been engaged in looting and killing the people, started trembling with fear, and fell on the feet of Khwaja Sahib (R.A) and said, "we are your slaves. Be kind to us" when they repented Khwaja Sahib (R.A) made them recite Kalima and thus they accepted Islam. Khwaja Sahib (R.A) forbade them for looting and murdering in the name of the Almighty.

                                9. It is said -During his tour, Khwaja sahib (R.A), Ohududdin Kirmani (R.A) and Shaikh Shahbudin(R.A) were sitting together at a place and discussing some religious point of faith. Suddenly a young boy with a bow and arrow in hand passed by Khwaja Sahib (R.A) saw him and said, " The boy is the future king of Delhi."
And his prediction proved to be true and boy became the king of Delhi with the name of king Shamsuddin Altamash and ruled the country for about 26 years.

                               10. Though Khwaja Sahib (R.A) had no means of income but he set up a langerkhana ( alms- house). The food was so abundant there that all the poor and needy of the city were fed with it. It is said that he directed the Chief of the alms- house to demand as much money as needed for the langarkana. The Chief used to come to him daily in the morning. On his arrival Khwaja Sahib (R.A) used to unfold the corner of his Musalla and asked him to take whatever required from the hidden treasury. He himself used to keep fast and broke it with the dried barley bread, weighing not more than five misqal (few grms)

                                11. Once, Hazrat Khwaja Qutubuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki (R.A) was meeting with the king in the fort of Delhi. The other officials were also present there. Suddenly a characterless woman came there and asked justice. She requested the king to get her married, since she was under the state of mental pain. The king asked her to whom she wanted to be married, and which sort of agony she is facing, she said, "The fellow who is very close to you and called himself as Qutub has raped me. As a result I am pregnant. " Hearing the entire episode, all those present were shocked . They pulled down their heads with shame. Qutub Sahib (R.A) was also ashamed . He could do nothing but he turned his face towards Ajmer and called Khwaja Sahib (R.A) for his help. As and when Khwaja Sahib (R.A) heard cry of his dear disciple for help, he immediately reached there. He asked Qutub Sahib (R.A), "What is the matter ? Qutub Sahab (R.A) could not speak a single word and tears started rolling out of his eyes. The episode was revealed to Khwaja Sahib (R.A).
All this made Khwaja Sahib (R.A) very much angry. He turned to the crooked lady and said " O child, inside womb, your mother has alleged that Qutab Sahib (R.A) is your father. Tell whether it is true ?"
There was a clear voice, from inside the womb, heard by all present there. The child said, The statement is all wrong. The woman is a prostitute and has been sent by the enemies of Qutub Sahib (R.A) to insult and defame him." All the people were much surprised on hearing all about. The woman himself admitted her false allegation.
Khwaja Sahib (R.A) said, Only Allah can award honour and repute." And then he returned. Except Hazrat Khwaja Qutubuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki (R.A), all were much surprised on arrival and disappearance of Khwaja Sahib (R.A).

                            12. One day, Khwaja Sahib (R.A) was sitting among the disciples and preaching. Suddenly he saw something on his right side. He stood up as paying respect to somebody. It happened again and again as and when he glanced towards right side. When the assembly was over and people left away, one of his servants asked the reason as to why he had been standing up repeatedly on having a look at right side. Khwaja Sahib (R.A) said, "The Mazar of my Peer-o-Murshid is located in that direction. As I looked towards that direction, the Mazar came before my eyes, so I stood up to offer respect."

                            13. Hazrat Sayyed-e-na Khawaja Ghareeb Nawaz went to attend the funeral of one of his disciples. After performing the funeral prayers He lowered him into the grave with His hands. Hazrat Sayyed-e-na Bakhtiyaar Kaaki says that after the burial almost everyone left, but Huzoor Khawaja Ghareeb Nawaz remained sitting at his grave. Suddenly, He became sad. After sometime He said (all praise be to Allah) and became satisfied. On my request He said that the angels of punishment came to my disciple on which I became worried. Meanwhile, my mentor Hazrat Sayyed-e-na Khawaja Usman Harooni came and recommended for him in from of the angels, 'O, angels! This person is a disciple of my disciple, Moinuddin leave him. The angels said that he was a very big sinner. This conversation was going on that a voice was heard saying, "O angels we have pardoned this disciple of Moinuddin Chisty for the sake of Usman for Harooni.": Dear Islamic Brethren! From this incident a lesson is learnt that we should become a disciple of some perfect mentor, since because of him the punishment of the grave can be refrained.

                                14. It was the assembly of the saints. Everyone of them agreed to show his miracles. Thus Khwaja Usman Harooni (R.A) turned his Musallah and took out some pieces of gold and gave them to a Durvesh and asked him to bring some sweets for all present their. Shaikh Ohuddin Kirmani (R.A) touched a piece of wood and it turned into gold.
When Khwaja Usman Harooni (R.A) insisted, Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A) knew through Divine inspiration that one of the persons of the present assembly is hungry but could not tell others because of modesty . Thus Khwaja Sahib (R.A) took out four barley Rotis and put them before the person.

                            15. It is narrated that once Aurangzaib Alamgir went to the glorious Shrine of the King of India Khawaja Ghareeb Nawaz. Within the boundary a blind beggar was crying out, Ya Khawaja Ghareeb Nawaz! Restore my sight. He asked this beggar, Baba! How long has it been since asking for the vision? He said that it has been ages but my wish is unfulfilled. He said that I shall return in a short time after paying a visit to the Holy Shrine, if your eyes gain vision very well, otherwise I will have you killed. After saying this the King called for the guards to keep an eye on the beggar, and King went inside to pay his respect. On the other hand, the beggar started lamenting and kept requesting while weeping, "Ya Khawaja! First the deal was of eyes only but now it involves life, if you do not show mercy I will be killed." When the King returned after paying his respect, His eyes had acquired the vision. The King smiled and said that until now you were asking without devoting heart and concentration, and now because of fear of life you asked from your heart, hence your was fulfilled.Khawaja now look towards the sinner with a vision full of cure. The disease of committing sins has overpowered this sinful being.

                            16. When Sayyed-e-na Khawaja Ghareeb Nawaz came to Ajmair Shareef foremost He sat under a peepul tree. This place was reserved for the camels of the hindu raja, prithvi raj, of that place. The servants of the raja came and started being rough on him and rudely said that you people is the resting place for the camels of the raja. Khawaja Sahib said, "fine we people will go, may your camels remain seated here." Hence the camels were made to sit over there. In the morning the camel-driver came and tried to make the camels stand up, but even after trying everything the camels did not stand up. They got scared and went to the grand presence of Hazrat Sayyed-e-na Khawaja Sahib and shamefully begged for forgiveness, for the rudeness. The uncrowned King of India Sayyed-e-na Khawaja Ghareeb Nawaz said, "Go by the order of Allah your camels have stood up." When they returned all the camels were infact standing up. Khawaja-e-Hind your saintly court is so grand. Never did anyone return with any unfulfilled need from there.

                                17. Someone complained to the King that some people of another religion have come and camped near our place of worship. The King ordered that they be forcibly removed. When they came and surrounded the Muslims, Hazrat Khwaja Gareeb Nawaz Rehmatullahe Ta'ala 'Alaih recited Ayatul Kursi on some sand and threw it at them. Whomever the grains of sand fell on became unconscious and froze. On the third day, the King and citizens of the city gathered at the lake to worship. Ram Dev Mehnat moved forward to physically remove Hazrat Khwaja Gareeb Nawaz Rehmatullahe Ta'ala 'Alaih, but as soon as Khwaja Saheb looked him in the eye, he was overcome with awe and fear. He immediately fell at the feet of Khwaja Saheb and accepted Islam. He was the first one to accept Islam and who, later on, achieved a great status.
