CHILLA BABA FARID GANJ-E-SHAKAR
(40 DAYS SECLUSION)
Just behing the Sandal Khana Mosque the Chilla (CELL or HUJRA) of Hazrat Baba Farid Ganj-e-Shakar is situated, where Baba Farid R.A. spent some time in contemplation and seclusion. The gate to the Chilla Sharif remains closed through out the year except for three days, 4th Moharram Sharif to 6th Moharram Sharif every year, when it is opened for Ziarat to all in the Chilla Sharif.

 

Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty and Hazrat Khwaja Kutubuddin Bakhtyar Kaki R.A. were together in the Hujra  (Cell or Chilla). Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty said to Hazrat Khwaja Kutubuddin Bakhtyar Kaki ‘O Bakhtyar how much longer will you burn that young man (Baba Farid) up with Spiritual Exercise? ‘You must reward him with something.’ Hazrat Khwaja Kutubuddin Bakhtyar Kaki answered, ‘What power do I have in front of you? ‘Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty announced, ‘This is your mureed (disciple).’
 
Then he stood up and suggested that they both gave him their blessings. So Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty stood on the right and Hazrat Khwaja Kutubuddin Bakhtyar Kaki on the left with side Baba Farid between them, and whatever blessings they had received they bestowed on him.
