As per custodian of the shrine that there are many cases of patients affected by evil spirits used to come there and get recovery soon and from February 1981 onwards there is increase of visitors to the shrine in large number. He has explained that his Jalali (majestic) condition is still alive, so for this reason once in case of patient Mr. Saleemuddin’s treatment somebody has thrown out brazier by mistake in the well so for this reason there was a great fire accident which took place in the well and huge fire flames were found there.
The news report of his great miracle has been published in daily Urdu newspaper ‘Rehumai Deccan’ Hyderabad on 12th March 1981. Once one lorry driver Mr. Saleem was coming to Hyderabad from Bombay and on the way in place of Jalkot one male and female cobra snakes have come to the center of the road and for this reason the male cobra was died suddenly due to the accident by the lorry of Mr. Saleem on the spot and female cobra entered into the lorry cabin and she sat there and for this reason some persons had killed her immediately. Mr. Saleem, who was at 26 years old have came to his house in Hyderabad and after some days his health become seriously ill and his habits and movements were converted like cobra snake and he was started crawling like snake and for this reason his mother took him to many places of spiritualists for his health recovery but there was no benefit at all.
After some time his mother has arranged the marriage of Mr. Saleem with Miss Durdana. After marriage Mrs. Durdana has also become a patient of the evil spirits and her habits and movements were also converted as female cobra. Due to the serious condition of Mr. Saleem and his wife the parents were becoming upset and worried in this matter, and they took them to many places for their check up by spiritualists for their cure and recovery but there was no benefit for them.
So as per advice of Mr. Saleem’s friend the couple have visited shrine of Hazrat Khaja Rehmatulla Saheb of Rahmatabad in Nellore district and they stayed there for some days but due to no money for the expenses for their stay there and for this reason they were planning to come back to Hyderabad city and at that in the dream they got message that they should take ration of 100 Rupees from the shop which is opposite of the shrine for free of charge and so they have taken ration from the above shop without payment of cost and the shop owner did not demand money upon the delivery to goods to them.
After some time they were instructed in their dream to proceed to the shrine of Hazrat Yousuf Saheb and Shraif Saheb at Hyderabad. So they have reached there and stayed there for some time. During their stay at the above shrine they were further instructed in the dream to proceed the shrine of Syed Meeran Hussaini at Lunger House.
From the resident of Mr. Saleem which is located at the first Lancer area of the hillside they came to the shrine of Syed Meran Hussaini at Lunger House area and at the shrine they have been advised for a bath at the well of the shrine and after the bath both of them were taken for the visit of the shrine for some days. In the shrine area their habits and movements of snakes like creeping and hiss continued and for this reason the visitors noticed their habits and movements of snakes and this news was spread in the city so for this reason a large number of persons came to the shrine to see them and watch their habits of snakes. Due to the large number of visitors and gathering there was problem to control the large number of persons in the shrine and for this reason one police outpost was established under the supervision of the circle inspector Mr. Ahmed Ali Khan of police station Asif Nagar and following police men were allotted duties in the police outpost at the shrine area.1.Mr. Ishaque.2.Mr.Abdul Razzaq.3.Mr.Abdul Razzaq.4.Mr. S.R. Goud.
Also the above police staff watched the creeping and hiss condition of the couple. As per the statement of policeman Mr. Abdul Razzaq that when there will be a condition of invocation of spirits upon Mrs. Durdana then she used to say to get back her husband and then she used to climb on the pole like snake. On the 4th February when there was a condition of invocation of spirits on them they both said “Baba now we are going ” and then they slept there for some time and upon their wake up they become normal and in perfect health due to the spiritual favour and help of Hazrat Syed Meeran Hussaini Saheb. Upon the above problem of evil spirits Mr. Saleem has discontinued his lorry driving work and but upon his recovery of his good health he has continued the work of lorry driving. And his wife Mrs. Durdana also become perfect and her health was also improved very well by the kind blessings of the Sheikh.
