THE Mausoleum of his holiness SYED MUHAMMAD AMIN OWAISI ALIAS OWAISI SAHAB(rahimahumullah) is located in the historical mohalla of Srinagar known as aali kadal just 6 km away from lal chowk. His holiness amin owaisi alias Owaisi sahib(r.a) was the second son of syed hussain mantaqi bayhaqi son of syed noorud din bayhaqi, the name of his first son was mir syed Hassan bayhaqi mantaqi(r.a) whose shrine is situated at the highway of awantipora tehsil pulwama Kashmir. His holiness owaisi sahib has his education in quranic language and sunnah i.e, tradition of prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him) from baba haji adham(r.a) who was from Afghanistan, in the field of mystic life as well as the realization of things his holiness mir owaisi got so much benfit from syed hilal naqshbandi(r.a). Syed hilal naqshbandi(r.a) was himself disciple of his holiness Khwaja bahaud din naqshbandi(r.a) the blessed one. Later on his holiness owaisi sahib(r.a) the blessed one associated himself with owaisi school of thought,this way of life has its source and way of life from the chief saint known as his majesty owais karani(r.a). As per the chronologists, sultan zainul abidin budshah was a devout follower of his holiness mir owaisi sahib(r.a) the blessed one. Sultan did construct a grand mosque for the up keepment and seclusion of his mentor and guide at asham, before this his holiness owaisi sahib got his secluded position from some time in the bottom of Kohi maran. According to a tradition, once his holiness syed mohammad amin owaisi(r.a) the blessesd one set for visiting the mausoleum of syed Muhammad zakariya Multani(r.a) in multan. In the way thieves demanded cash from him, the saint asked them to dig the ground, hence they got one lac rupees from the earth. At the second time the thieves again halted him in the way, at that time the saint owaisi sahib(r.a) looked at the sky at once, heavy rain and hail storm fell down. Thieves did not find their way to escape their selves from the natural catastrophe and they got the side of saint in order to save their selves. At last this sort of gangs asked him for pardon and followed the saint on the right path. After this event he arrived in Kashmir by virtue of spiritual means. It is said that the famous commander of Kashmir namely Tazi Bhat and malik ahmed yatoo felt annoyed by the saadats of bayhaqia, as they were from foreign land, the annoyed dignitaries killed the elders of the same sect in a single night. His holiness saint owaisi sahib(r.a) was one among them. The historians do mention that the deceased got his head cut while bleeding in the grand mosque of mohalla Malchimar. People felt wonderstruck on this extraordinary miracle. They buried the saint in the same khanqah. He was martyred in the month of zilqaidah 889 hijri which deposed the dead of death in alphabetic system of Persian order. His holiness owaisi sahib(r.a) was quite eloquent in Persian language. His mausoleum is one of the famous shrine in Srinagar which is esteemed by sub urban people on the occasions of religious festivals. The people throng over there for having favours and blessings.

Prof Hamid Naseem rafiabadi mentions the owaisi sahib(r.a) in his book SAINTS AND SAVIOURS OF ISLAM and i quote that paragraph of his book here. Prof. Rafiabadi says “ first naqshbandi saint syed hilal naqshbandi(r.a) left only one disciple i.e, owaisi Sahib(r.a). Some of verses of his holiness syed owaisi sahib(r.a) seem very pertinent to be quoted. For example

“The world and man of the world one endowed with the essence of the eternal, if you look deeply, you will find everything in the human being.”

He says further “The entire universe is with me. My abode is beyond lamakan(spaceless world).O Alim(religious scholar)! My body is itself a universe . Know! The soul of universe is in my soul.”

Prof. Hamid Rafiabadi further writes that “Owaisi sahib(r.a) was a broad-minded sufi, above all religious prejudices. He says, ‘Do not scorn infidelity to those who have found out truth, it is not different from faith.’ Again he (owaisi sahib) says, ‘To an Arif (Gnostic) the difference between the mosque and temple are meaningless. Men endowed with spiritual eminence, find both good and evil identical.’ About the mystical with god he says, ‘I want wisaal (Union). I do not wanteither this world or the other. I worship God; I do not worship houses or walls.”
