HAZRAT MEERAN SB. KHING SAWAR (R.A.)
The old name of Ajmer was Ajaymeroo. At that time the king was Raja Rai Pithora. In his kingdom there was a famous magician known US jadoogarJaipal who was Rajguru of the Fort & was a proudy and cruel. In order to spread his famousness he used to set magic light daily. The magic light was seen from far & far distance. That magic light was also seen by Hazrat Roshan Ali Darvesh in Bukhara. Hazrat Roshan Ali Darvesh knew by his spiritual power the magic light was burn by Jadoogar in his proudness. This was not tolerated by him & made up his mind immediately to proceed India. He came to Ajmer & sottolocl at Ghoogra Ghati situated in Ajmer.His maditation to Almighty God & miracle spread soon on every common man & Raja. One day a famous wrestler named Samant passed through his maditation place. He saw a strange that crowd of people were listening his preaching silently. The wrestler threatened Darvesh not to do so. Darvesh said to wrestler that to disturb Darvesh is bad.
You mind your own business. On hearing this the wrestler attacked on Darvesh by sword soon after a sparkle of Dhooni of Darvesh went to Samant, Samant saw miracle and run away. Next day the place of Dhooni was changed near to common way. In the mean time a Goojri (Milk Seller) who used to carry curd to Raja’s Kitchen passed away. Roshan Ali Darvesh asked goojri what you are carrying, she said it is curd for Raja’s Kitchen, Roshan Ali Darvesh asked her what you are getting for it, Goojri said Two Ashrafiyan (Gold coins) Darvesh asked what is special in curd for which Two coins you are getting. She said It is a tasteful! curd. Darvesh took that curd for Two Coins. Darvesh tasted that curd & found it sour. So Darvesh returned curd to Goojri along with two coins. Goojri was greedy and carried the curd to Raja’s Kitchen, By seeing the print of finger in curd it was established that curd is not pure. This news spread over & reached upto Raja. Goojri described the whole story of tasting curd by Darvesh. Hearing the story Raja got angry badly and order his police to present Darvesh .before him. Police took Darvesh to Raja. Raja ordered his Police to kill Darvesh. ButTara Bai the daughter of Raja who was expert in Astrology said to Raja that killing of “Darvesh may cause the destruction of Kingdom. So Raja left his idea to kill Darvesh on the advice of Tara Bai and as a punishment he ordered to cut the finger of Darvesh with which he tasted curd. Darvesh returned to his place Darvesh returned to his place Ghoogra Ghati and burried his finger. Even today the tomb of finger is still there. Hence Darvesh left Ajmer proceeded towards Madeena & reached to Roza-e-Mubarak of Rasool-e-Khuda. He described the cruelty of Raja. Faryad of Darvesh was accepted. He saw in dream and was directed to bring the matter before Meeran Sahib at Mashhad & He will help you. At the same time Hazrat Meeran Sahib saw a dream to help Darvesh. So when Darvesh reached to Meeran Sb. at Mashhad The Marriage of Meeran Sb. was being celebrated. He was in bridegroom dress, Darvesh presented himself before Meeran Sb. Meeran Sahib was already in the knowledge of arrival of Darvesh. Meeran Sb. also knew the MASLEHATE Khuda vandi. So Meeran Sahib left his marriage and proceeded towards India. in his bridgroom dress and took the people with him in the way.
It is said by Abu Tayyab that when Meeran Sb. intended to proceed towards India. Sultan Mehmood Gaznavi send me a Massage that Meeran Sb. has proceeded to India, for great Jehad so you Alakh Khan go at once to help him with great Lashkar. It is clear that Meeran Sb. was in Mehmood Gaznavi Period.
Devotees of Islam forwarded to India from a Balakh Bukhara Multan & Sindh with great courage under the guidance of Shahbuddin Bhole Alakh Khan and reached the destination Boodha Pushkar, where no water was available, the time of namaz was near at that time so he threw “Neza” on the earth, water came out from earth, and Ghazian-e-Islam did wazoo and offered prayers. After that they came to Ajmer and stayed atAnasagar Place where sodagars at that time used to get horses of different kinds. When this lashkar stayed there people thought them as sodagars group. When Raja came to know their arrival. He sent his two sons to know the facts. They saw a Horse Khing whom they liked too much anc asked to purchase the horse. Meeran Sb. said that this horse is for my riding & not to sale. They said that we like this horse only on their repeated request Meeran Sb. said that you can purchase the horse provided you fill the depth by money caused by the hit of horse leg that will be horse price. Hearing this they got pleased and told the whole story to their father (Raja). Raja also got pleased and gave them too much money. But when Horse hit the earth it made too much big depth, the whole money was gone in it but the depth was not filled. Raja’s sons got too much worried. The second condition was put before them by Meeran Sb. that this horse is head (Sardar) of horses if the horse comes back to me from you then I will not give the horse back to you. Raja’s son
accepted the condition & they took the horse. They tied the horse firmly at their Astabal. But the horse came back to Meeran Sb. at mid night. In the morning Raja’s son saw that the Horse Khing is not in astabal and many other horses in astabal are lying dead, – and many other horses incapable. Raja got annoyed much & came to meeran Sb. & argued much. Meeran Sb. gave him the refrence of condition fixed between him & Raja’s son. Raja was not satisfied and attacked on Meeran Sb. with huge Iashkar. In the reply Merran Sb. faced the assault (Attack) & with the blessings of Allah Pak got the glorious victory. Meeran Sb. when reached near fort He with his all forces offered Namaz-e-Zohar. At the mean time JadoogarJaipal Jogi got the chance of throwing a big stone of the Hill on Meeran Sb. He was busy in praying. Stone of the hill continued to moving on his head. After prayer as he started Dua He saw the hill stone moving around his head. He (Meeran Sb.) addressed to hill stone. if you have come with the order of Rasool &Allah Pak you are Welcome & if you are sent by Jadoogar better you stop there. A voice from stone came Huzoor I have been thrown by Jadoogar but I am helpless & want help. So Huzoor Meeran Sb. gave help to stone by two fingers and also said to his horse to help stone with knee moving stone stopped, till today the stone is in the way of Taragarh. This stone is known as Adhar Silla, Jadoo ka pathar. Today also the print of two fingers & driving stick horse knee is seen in the stone. Most of the devotees used to come & visit Taragarh & get their heart filled with joy.
With great courage the forces of Meeran Sb. Attacked on enemy with the the result enemy disheartened & began to hide & to run. When enemies found themselves helpless they close the door of Fort & started to throw “leer” on Lashkar. But Lashkar-e-lslam went on going ahead & ahead with slogan “Allah-O-Akbar” Jadoogar did the hight of hill twice by Magic. Huzoor Meeran Sahib’s Horse Khing “Tap” at Hill. The Taragarh Hill which was made twice in hight by magic was reduced half with Qudrat-e-Elahi & thus lashkar got entered in the fort & the fort was captured. In the mean time there was a time of Zohar Namaz. Namaz was got started. The enemies availed this chance they got united & attacked again and they succeeded to kill Huzoor Syed Meeran Hussain along with hisfellowmer during the Namaztime.
