Hazrat Sirajus Salekeen (RA), son of Hazrat Nizamuddin Hussain (RA) was born on 19th Rabiul Awwal 1276 (AH) – 1858 A. D. Syed Hussain Sahib who was the Khalifa of Hazrat Nizamuddin Hussain (RA) was engrossed in deep meditation near the mazar of Hazrat Niaz-be-Niaz (RA). He suddenly heard a voice coming from the Mazar saying that Shah Mohiuddin Ahmad was born. He opened his eyes and saw a flash of light coming from the Haveli. He thought that the sun had arisen. But when he came to senses he found it was the break of the dawn. After sometime it was known that a son is born to Hazrat Nizamuddin Hussain (RA). Hazrat Shah Mohiuddin Ahmad (RA) was then brought to the Khanqah and was put infront of mazar of Hazrat Niaz-be-Niaz (RA). He was given the same name which had come from the mazar of Hazrat Niaz-be-Niaz (RA).

Education:

Hazrat Sarkar Sirajus Salekeen (RA) got his early education from various noble Khalifas who were well versed in their fields. At the time of Bismillah Ceremony Hazrat Nizamuddin Hussain (RA) kept his hand on the hand of Hazrat Shah Mohiuddin Ahmad (RA) to indicate that he will be the future sajjada nashin who will carry his mantle. He learnt Qirat from Khalifa Moulvi Obaidullah Sahib Badakhshani and Mir Jamal Sahib. He excelled in all the faculties of Quran, Hadith Tafsir etc. under the guidance of Moulvi Ahmad Yar Khan and Moulvi Hidayat Ali. After completing his formal education he became the disciple of his father Hazrat Nizamuddin Hussain (RA). He was taught all the routines and was made to sit in the company of various noble khalifas. Whenever something important was discussed, he was called to be present. He studied various important volumes of FUTUHAT YAKA, FUSOOSUL HUKM, JOURNALS OF IMAM GHAZALI, FUTUHUL GHAIB, SHAMSHUL AIN, MAATHUL HAQIQAT, under the guidance of Hazrat Tajul Aulia (RA). When he excelled in all forms of education he was married to a noble Syed family at the age of seventeen. A daughter was born to him after which his wife died. He never remarried and loved his daughter a lot. She too was a very noble and pious lady who spent a lot of her time in prayers and meditation.

Many of his well wishers requested him to marry again but he refused saying that he has fulfilled the orders of sunnat. He also told that he had been informed that a boy born to his daughter will carry the mantle of Sajjada Nashin. And so it did happen to which we shall refer later. When he excelled in all the faculties of knowledge and practices which are considered essential for a Sajjada Nashin, Hazrat Tajul Aulia (RA) in the midst of various khalifas declared him as his Sajjada Nashin. He was made to sit on the masnad. He took his turban and placed it on Hazrat Shah Mohiuddin Ahmad (RA) and presented two rupees as NAZR and told further that these two rupees are the same which were given to him at the time of his sajjada nashini. These two rupees are same which Maulana Fakhre Pak (RA) had given to Hazrat Niaz-be-Niaz (RA) when he was made Sajjada Nashin. Then he declared that all his disciples and khalifas should think to be as disciples of Hazrat Shah Mohiuddin Ahmad (RA) from now onwards. Sweets were distributed to the audience.

Personality:

Hazrat Sirajus Salikeen (RA) was well built and had a graceful personality. He had beautiful eyes with slight red streak and was very fair complexioned. He also sported a beard and a moustache. He was soft spoken and spoke slowly in a manner that all sitting close or far to him listened easily.

He never slept and used to pray till the break of dawn. So in the morning whenever he used to come to Khanqah his eyes were drowsy. He prayed for forty years. Hazrat Shah Mohiuddin Ahmad (RA) was well known among the distinguished Mashaikhs of the world, renowned in the field of piety and endowed with great qualities by Allah. Sarkar Sirajus Salikeen’s (RA) heart was full of human sympathies. The classless atmosphere of Khanqah attracted despised sections of the society to their fold. So people of all class and creed used to come to him for their problems. Here the people found an entirely different social order. All discriminations and distinctions were meaningless in the Khanqah.

He was generous to the limitless extent. During the marriage ceremony of Hazrat Mahboob Mian Sahib, his grandson, some disciples gifted a gold bar. Some person who was present there asked for it and Hazrat gave it to him.

He used to eat whatever food was placed before him. The same food used to be served to the other people present in the Khanqah. There was no distinction between rich and poor in his assemblies. Everybody got the same treatment.

It was his daily routine to remain in the Khanqah till 12 pm. After midnight he used to go to the Haveli for a brief nap. He perform Tahajjud prayers and got himself engrossed in deep meditation till the break of the dawn. After morning prayers he used to perform Fateha of Imam Hussain (AS) on fresh water drawn from the well and also watered the green plants. When he came to Khanqah he used to bow and kiss the Mazar of Hazrat Tajul Aulia (RA) and used to pray at the mazar of Hazrat Niaz-be-Niaz (RA)’s. Then he sat on Masnad and used to converse very sweetly with those present in the Khanqah. He listened to the woes of all those present. He returned to the haveli thereafter for a short while and was back in Khanqah after the zohar prayers. Sometimes he performed Maghrib prayers in the Khanqah and sometime in haveli. He did not like to lead the prayers generally and one of his disciples acted as Imam in prayers. Whenever he led the prayers he recited small surahs and often completed the prayers quickly. After Maghrib prayers he used to have very little meal of whatever food was cooked in the Khanqah kitchen. Sometimes he only took dry bread soaked in water.

He was well versed in Persian, Arabic, Turkish and Punjabi. He mastered calligraphy, shooting and riding. He had a great literary taste. He never posed as a great saint and used to quote the saying of Hazrat Ali (KW) “Live the way like a good man in the eyes of Allah and non-entity in your own eyes and a common man in the eyes of the people”. He never liked publicity and preached the same to his disciples. Everybody was free to attend his assemblies and was free to converse and clear his/her doubts. He spent most of his time in prayers and his day was mainly devoted to the service of humanity. People from all walks of life came to him with their worldly and spiritual problems. Whenever anybody had some doubt he used to know by just throwing a glance at that person. He used to tell whatever was going on in that person’s heart. He was a true follower of Islam and walked in the footsteps of the Prophet. He was against name and fame and lived a life of solitude. He was always simply dressed and used to wear a long cotton kurta and pyjama. He sported a Zari Meerut Cap as per the tradition of the Chistiya Order. He was very fond of perfume. Everybody had immense respect in their hearts for him. He was very generous and kind hearted. Even if somebody troubled him he never uttered a bad word against him. He never had any charm for money and wealth. He accepted NAZAR only from his disciples. There was no compulsion. Many landlords were ready to gift their land and money but he disapproved. He ordered that it was not permitted for a Derviesh to accept grants, stipend or favour. Whatever came to the Khanqah was handed over to one of the Khalifas who managed the Khanqah kitchen.

Sarkar Siraj-us-Salikeen (RA) used to sit in Sama (Qawwali) after doing abolution and always asked his disciples to do the same. Khalifa Qutubuddin Sahib has narrated that once he was sitting with his brother in the Khanqah. As the Sama started he got up from the bed and went straight to the Khanqah and sat in a corner. When Sarkar Sirajus Salikeen (RA) saw he was called close to him and advised not attend the ‘SAMA’ ceremony without doing abolution.

Whoever sat in the company of Hazrat Qibla was rewarded. Hazrat Qibla had special love and respect for Hazrat Ali (KW) and AHLE BAIT. He also advised his disciples to develop special love and respect for “AHLE BAIT”. He paid great respect to Syeds and always helped them with whatever they needed.
Some of the family prayers of Sarkar Sirajus Salikeen required solitude, so he used to go to the forests. Since he was against any show he used to say that he is going to the forest for hunting.

He never went to the officials or those in power in accordance with the tradition of Chistiya order. The officials and those in power themselves came and paid respects by kissing Sarkar’s hands and feet. He used to say that the best act is to feed the poor, to serve them and treat them with love and affection.

Sarkar Sirajus Salekeen had highest regard for Sharia Mohammadia and emphasized upon his followers to adhere to it. In his various discourses in Khanqah, he repeatedly highlighted the importance of Kalma (a pre-requisite for being a Muslim) and said that a person should always remember God – the Almighty. A person in search of God should be broken hearted since a broken heart is a place where one can look for God. He recalled how Hazrat Moosa (AS) predecessor of our Prophet had once asked the God where to locate him and the answer had come that he could be found in broken hearts. Sarkar always advised everyone to submit to the will of God as whatever comfort or sorrow that came in life was only from his side and one should always be happy and thankful in whatever condition, God may keep him. Once when a disciple requested Sarkar to pray for improvement in his economic condition, Sarkar consoled him by saying that he had enough food to eat, clothes to wear, a house to live in and a family to love. God has taken upon himself the responsibility to feed each living being. What more did he want. He should thank God and ask only Him to fulfill his requirements. Sarkar emphasized that a person should always do good to others and not make a show of the same. As a matter of fact one should forget after doing good to someone.

One of the disciples who used to pray a lot felt proud of the same. Sarkar knew what was in his heart and so once he told him in particular without making others know whom he was addressing that we cannot reach the Almighty only by praying and thinking others as inferiors. To offer prayers and treat others as inferiors was the greatest mistake. He further cited the example of saints who strived and prayed and yet thought themselves to be inferior. The pride destroys all progress. A person should concentrate on curbing the ego (Nafs) first and then pray. He further mentioned that a day shall come when the Almighty will ask his creations that he used to remember them a lot but they in turn had forgotten him.

Sarkar quoted Quran to emphasize that saints or friends of God do not die – they only shift the place from visible to invisible. The outwardly death only empowers them. As the doctors cure the physical illness, the saints purify the spirit (Rooh). They provide a solution for spiritual ills or doubts. It is therefore, necessary for everyone to keep in touch with spiritual persons. Sarkar put great emphasis on love and unity among his disciples and for them to pray in the night. On the need for a Pir (Spiritual Guide) he observed that a Pir leads the disciples along the road of purification and when the soul is purified, the mirror of the heart is polished there is reflection in it of the splendour of divine glory. As a spiritual guide, nothing is hidden from Pir and he is aware of all doings of his disciples. Pir constantly guides him and mureeds (disciples) should submit themselves to him.
As has already been mentioned Sarkar gave great importance to ‘sama’ (Qawwali) as a method in remembrance of God. He made it known that a person who had no taste for sama, kept his heart devoid of love of God. Once in a gathering of learned people and saints, when people insisted he delivered a very powerful speech justifying use of musical instruments in ‘sama’. He argued that in the battle field sometimes beating of drums is used to boost up the morale of the fighters. What was wrong in that case if some musical instruments were used to seek concentration in God in life’s struggle. The speech was appreciated a great deal and one of the very senior person present – Maulana Abdul Bari Frangi Mahali compared his speech to Hazrat Maulana Fakhr-e-Pak’s (RA) discourses to the audience. 

Hazrat Maikash Akberabadi (RA) one of the noted caliphs of Hazrat Sirajus Salekeen (RA) has thus recorded his own impressions:

When I went to Khanqah in the beginning, I had been a student of Hadith, Tafseer and logic and, had the training from those who were opposed to Sufism. I, therefore, observed with a critical eye every word and action of Sarkar but I always felt in his company as if I was in the company of renowned of companions of Holy Prophet (PBUH) Sahabis, and I had no regrets in not being present at that time.

At another place he writes:

Sarkar’s behaviour and conduct had certain special features and the most prominent were his generosity, simplicity and his love for Ahle Bait. Taking advantage of his generous nature once people in Khanqah requested for certain protected relics. Those present saw that he was not annoyed at this demand and only felt sorry that since these were not his personal belongings but were part of Khanqah’s heritage, he was not in a position to accept their request. An example of extreme simplicity was noted when once he sat on the ground on railway platform while waiting for arrival of some train. The Station Master who was European saw this site and himself took a chair outside to offer him to sit. And his love for Ahle Bait was reflected in his entire personality.

Hazrat Nizamudddin Aulia (RA) has somewhere observed that KASHF- things revealed to a sufi saint and KARAMAT – miracles, were obstacles in righteous path because out of hundred stages in the journey towards sufism Karamat was only seventeenth. Any one who gets lost in this fails to attain the remaining eighty three. The Niazia saints, too, made every effort to conceal their miracles and most of what could be called miracles were meant to help persons – God’s creation in distress. 

Sarkar’s one glance was enough to change the mind of those present. Sarkar’s miraculous powers only helped all those who came to him in distress. And yet various miracles, directly or indirectly, were noticed during his life time. Only a few of these are being cited here. 

One of his Khalifas was confined to bed and was seriously ill. He was not able to digest anything. The doctors had given up hope of his survival. He became unconscious and saw Sarkar in dream who told him that he shall not die with this disease and advised him to eat egg. His son, who was a doctor himself, was opposed to it and thought it too risky for his life. But he did take egg and gradually regained strength and recovered fully.
Waliuddin son of Khalifa Qutbuddin Sahib was seriously ill when Urs sharief was scheduled. He was in a dilemma on what to do. Anyway he set out to participate in the Urs leaving his son behind. After reaching Barielly Sharief he informed Sarkar about his son’s serious illness. Sarkar kept quiet. After Urs Sarkar was to go to Ajmer Sharief. Qutbuddin Sahib felt happy that he shall also be privileged to accompany Sarkar on his Ajmer visit. Meanwhile he got a telegram about deterioration in his son’s condition and was asked to reach immediately. He placed the telegram before Sarkar. Sarkar told him not to worry but asked him to go to his house as the ladies were getting upset. Qutbuddin Sahib felt sorry on not being able to accompany Sarkar on his Ajmer visit. He came back to his house and found his son well and recovering. On 6th of Rajab he had a dream and saw that he was paying visit to Khwaja Sahib Dargah alongwith Sarkar and felt satisfied.
Once at 2 am (in the night) some people brought a person bitten by snake on a cot. The person was almost dead. Sarkar was informed of the person’s condition. He came out and saw the person and asked why a dead person had been brought in. The father of the person wept bitterly and said that he will also commit suicide if his son did not get well. Sarkar was very kind and asked the person not to worry and consoled him. He watched the dead person for sometime. After five minutes the person who was almost dead started moving. Sarkar smiled and went inside the haveli and asked the disciples to recite something so that he may get well soon. And the person did get well and went back to his home on foot. 

Once a Hindu lady came with a child in her lap. She put the child on his feet and was constantly weeping saying “Mian Sb, I have heard your name that whosoever comes to you gets well. My son is critically ill and has lost pulse. Sarkar told her to go to the doctor and said if she wants he will give a ‘TAVEEZ’ for her son. But she insisted that she will not leave the place until his son got well. She also recalled that his father had also treated one of her neighbours son, whose pulse also had gone down. She said “you are his son, do something so that my son gets well”. Sarkar’s eyes got red and he started watching the motionless child and soon the child started moving. Sarkar told her to take the child to the Mazar and rub its dust on the child. The lady acted accordingly and the child started crying and took milk. After three days the lady came with some sweets and after ‘FATEHA’ distributed amongst the persons present there. She further disclosed that the child had died and her relatives were taking him for burial. I had faith in Sarkar and so had brought him to the Khanqah.

Khalifa Qutbuddin’s Sahib wife who was seriously ill had an extreme desire to be a disciple of Sarkar. She was on death bed, when she told Qutbuddin Sahib to write a letter to Sarkar and express her desire to become his disciple. It was known that a person could not become a disciple by simply writing a letter. When she went to sleep she had a dream that she had gone to Bareilly Sharief and on her request Sarkar took her in NIAZIA fold. She described Sarkar’s personality – how he was dressed. She recited the verses which Sarkar had made her to recite at the time of accepting her as mureed. She further informed that after taking her into Niazia fold he had advised her to leave for Ghazipur, her home town. As she woke up she started feeling better but after sometime she breathed her last. 

Sheikh Rahmatullah Sahib Ghazipuri has narrated that when he was SP of Barabanki he beat up a person on the complaint of one his close friends. The moment he was thrashed he uttered Illallah. Subsequently he felt sorry and set him free. Later at the call of his conscience he decided to call the person and apologize in private. The person whom he had beaten did not come but his father came instead. He apologized to him for his act. After sometime when he was dealing with some case he was suspended. At that time he was not mureed of any saint. His wife was the disciple of Mohammad Fazal Kareem Sahib (RA) who was Khalifa of Hazrat Tajul Aulia (RA) and so he also got keen to get into the Niazia fold. Sarkar was aware of the doubts in his heart. Sarkar could understand whatever was going on within his heart and so he was advised to wait. As his doubts got clarified and with renewed strengthening of faith he became a disciple. Then he told that he had been suspended without any reason and requested Sarkar to pray for promotion. Sarkar told him that he had not been suspended without any reason, as he had beaten up an innocent person and his curse was the reason for his suspension. He had not been dismissed from the job because of subsequent apology. He sought forgiveness and was then reinstated with promotion.

Syed Mahboob Ali Sahib Barelvi has narrated that his daughter was suffering with severe pain in stomach for the last three years. She was taken to many doctors but to no avail. He mentioned this to Sarkar. Sarkar went to his house on his request and asked the girl as to what she had dreamt last night. The girl had forgotten it completely. Then she recalled that she had seen Hazrat Maula Ali (AS) but what he had said she did not remember. Sarkar told her that she may again see him to night and then, ask him as to what type of ailment was this and what was its treatment? The same night the girl had a dream again and asked what was this disease and what was its remedy? Maula Ali (AS) replied that she had a tumour in her stomach and that her Pir could cure this. Next day Sarkar again visited the girl and when she informed him about the dream, Sarkar told that he was not capable of it and Maula Ali (AS) alone could do it. She again had the privilege to see Maula Ali (AS) and told whatever Sarkar had said. Then Maula Ali informed that her Pir had the capacity to break a mountain. On the third day when Sarkar came she narrated the dream. Meanwhile the tumour automatically got burst and after some time the girl got well. 

Dr I. Das was a renowned Surgeon. He had roaring practice in Calcutta. During the month of Ramadhan he had an intense desire to reach Barielly Sharief and touch Sarkar’s feet. That could not be possible and hence he sent ‘NAZAR’ EID. Same night Sarkar came in his dream and informed him about receipt of ‘NAZAR’ and told him that he himself would be coming to Calcutta. Next day when he was attending the patients, he suddenly saw Sarkar arriving in his clinic. He stood up and paid his respects. Sarkar stayed for sometime, talked to him and went away. As per his version, he could not believe himself whether this was day dreaming. After sometime, he went to Bareilly Sharief to pay his respect. Sarkar had donned the same dress which he was wearing when he had come to Calcutta. He learnt there that he had in fact never gone Calcutta around that time. 

Visal:

During the last few years Sarkar had started giving clues that he may be leaving the world soon. He had made it a routine to take tea along with the disciples in the Khanqah. A day before his departure from this world he called his son Hazrat Aziz Mian Sahib (RA) who remained with him till four in the morning.
Sarkar told Hazrat Aziz Mian Sahib that whatever he had he has passed it on to him. Time had come to go to God. He advised his son not to tell this to his daughter. He further told: 
 
“I will be present in you”.

Always love the poor and the heart broken, help the disciples, think yourself to be a servant of ‘SADAAT’ and ‘AHLE BAIT’. Then he went to ‘Seetal’ by car at the Durgah of Hazrat Chirag Ali Shah Sahib.
He participated in the ‘SAMA’, removed all his worldy belongings (knife, artificial teeth, etc) and gave it to the attendant and told him to give the same to Hazrat Aziz Mian Sahib. When the SAMA was in full swing he called the QAWWAL to recite the following couplet:

‘BASHAD IMANE MUSULMA MUSHAFE RUE ALI’
‘SAJDA GAHE MAST MEHRABE DO ABRUE ALI’

When the ‘Qawwal’ started singing the couplet, Sarkar was in the state of ‘WAJD’. He looked at the sky and turned his face towards the Qibla and went into Sajda. When ‘SAJDA’ got prolonged people became anxious and helped him. The pulse had already gone but he walked upto the cot and lied down. Since he was a great admirer of Hazrat Maula Ali he offered his life to the Almighty remembering Maula Ali on 26-27th Rabiul Avval 1343 Hijri. (1924-AD)
