There was a remarkable incident during the voyage, which throws light on his spiritual
eminence and nobility of his conception of life, devoted to uplifting his soul for the correct
guidance of erring humanity. He was at that time fasting and would break his fast with
whatever was available.
He boarded the ship while fasting and took nothing to break his fast suddenly the ship lost its
propulsive motion and was becalmed. It is narrated that very night Mohammed Zia‐ud‐din
Saint a prominent merchant of Bombay travelling in the same ship saw in this dream our Holy
Prophet (peace be on upon Him) saying, “Zia‐ud‐din you are eating, but at the same time think
of your co‐passengers.” Opening his eyes the fortunate Saint recalling the command of our
Holy Prophet (peace be upon Him) bestirred himself to carry it out. To obviate the difficulty of
searching the real person on whose behalf the Holy Prophet (peace be upon Him) came in his
dream, finding none he searched every nook and corner of the ship. Finally in a dark niche he
found a solitary figure lost in deep meditation. He entreated Sarkar Waris to honour him by
accepting his invitation.
It was a marvel of Omnipotent Divine power that as soon as our Saint conceded to accept the
invitation of his host the ship resumed its motion and the journey was continued.The co‐passengers stunned at this Divine miracle, were captivated and became attached to our
youthful Saint. Saint Zia‐ud‐din and many joined his cult holding him in highest estimation.
