Hazrat Syed Shah Ismail Quadri Ghodwadi Sharif r.a

sufi1

 

Hazrat Syed Shah Ismail Quadri who was a great Sufi saint of ninth century Hegira and he belongs  to the Sadat family of  Hussaini chain (descendant of the holy prophet through his daughter Hazrat Fatima).

He was most pious and possessed good manners and good nature holy personality of  his time. His conduct and character details are as follows

  1. Kind to poor and needy persons. 2. Hospitality. 3. He was loved for the Sadat (descendant of the holy prophet through his daughter Hazrat Fatima) and learned persons. In  Bidar district,  many holy persons came from  the outside areas  of the preaching and propagation  mission of  Islam but his position is very high among all of them.  He left this world about 662 years ago but despite many centuries this Sheikh’s popularity and fame, as well as devotion for his piousness and of his name, are increasing day by day due to the kind grace of Allah.

    It is fact that world’s great personalities will meet their downfall after reaching  their height of great  progress but the pious personalities and friends of Allah who  will reach their height of great status and position due to their hard tasks and endeavours will not meet their downfall and forever their popularity will continue among the general and other persons. As per saying of Hafiz Shirazi that reason of popularity of  the pious  and holy person’s greatness  is that they are true and sincere persons who will finish their personalities for the love and nearness of Allah. They  are not at all interested in world’s attraction and pleasure as well as peace and comfort of the world. They are interested in the following things. 1. Commandments of Allah.  2.   Shariat (Islamic law).

     They used to act upon the above things and also they used to try hard  and used to instruct  others to  act upon the above things by their saying and their practice. They used to keep away from wealth and power for the above reasons  and so for these reasons Allah’s blessings and kindness were available with them so until the end of the world they will be well known and their position and status which will not meet its downfall and end. Upon studying many books and magazines and upon contacting many learned persons the compiler of this book could not ascertain  the following  details  about Syed Shah Ismail Qadri of Ghod Wadi Sharif.

1.Date of birth. 2.Place of birth. 3.Chain of Iradat (devotion). 4.His age at the time of his migration.5.Place of migration to Bider.

But it seems that the name  of Syed Mohammed Ali al-Quraishi is correct and it is possible that in another history book Tadhkira Qadri’it was written as Syed Mohammed as al-Qureshi by mistake.

        In the second genealogy record, there are differences in the arrangement of names while compared with the genealogy record one.

 The Genealogy  record number three.

     As per history book of Khurshid Jahi and Tariq Rashiuddind Khani there are no details of genealogy record available except that he was connected  with Imam Syed Mosa Kazim in the 29th generation. This genealogy record is also available in Tadhkira Qadri that Syed Shah Ismail Qadri is connected with Imam Syed Mosa Kazim in the 29th generation.

The genealogy  record number four.

     This genealogy record was compiled as per hand written  genealogy records  which was owned by Fariduddin Qadri who was custodian of  the mosque and shrine of Shah Lagan Hyderabad and in which  all the details are the same which are available in the book Tadhkira Qadri’ except there is some small  difference of one name is found in the book Tadhkira Qadri. As one name Syed Mohammed Ali al-Quraishi’s  is added in the 4th genealogy record and this name is added as Syed Mohammed Ali al-Quraishi in the book Tadhkira Qadri which seems to be correct and right. The above  fourth genealogy record of Tadhkira Qadri is complete and correct but  in  the genealogy number three  there are some differences and it is based upon genealogy record  number one and on the basis of book Tadhkira Qadri which was found correct and right in this matter.

    In book Tariq Khurshid Jahi it is mentioned that Syed  Shah Ismail  Qadri’s grand father’s name is  as Syed Shah Hussaini Koki and in the book Tariq Rashiduddin Khani it is mentioned that his  grandfather’s name as Syed Shah Hussain Koki so there is no  similarity in the name of  his grandfather in the above books. Also, there are no details available about his  date of death and place of  birth.  On page number 240 of  the first edition of this book about Hazrat Shah Ismail Qadri, it was mentioned that Syed Shah Ismail Qadri was daughter’s son of Syed Shah Chanda Hussaini who was died on 10th Shaban in the year 858 Hegira.

     But Syed Shah Chanda Hussain of Gogi Sharif left this world in the year 858 Hegira. and after 24 years of his death Ismail Shah Qadri  was died in the year 882  Hegira.  Regarding his grandfather’s  grave there are no differences at all and all are agreed that he was buried in Gogi village. Ismail Qadri’s youngest son’s name is Shah Chanda Qadri. So with the name of his son it may be presumed that  Syed Ismail Shah  Qadri is daughter’s son of Syed Chanda Qadri of Gogi Sharif and for this reason further research is required in this matter.

    The details about  Syed Ismail  Shah Qadri are available in the book Mashooq Ilahi  which was written by Meehan Ahmeduddin Syed Shah Murtaza Qadri who was custodian of Hazrat Gauche Mahal of Bijapur  and who published his book in the year  1973 August and  in this book the following details are not true and find incorrect and baseless.

  1. Genealogy.2. Order of Iradat (devotion).3. Sons.4. Date of birth.5. Place of the mausoleum.

    Because in the authorized records and history as well as in  biography books there are no such references and also no above details were found. Also, author of the above book  has not mentioned any reference in support of details and events which he was mentioned in his book.

Government Service.

    Upon reading the following books, the following details are available.

1.Tariq Khurshid Jahi. 2.Tariq Rashiduddin Khani.3.Tadhkirta Auliya Deccan. It was revealed that Syed Ismail Shah Qadri was in service of Sultan Alauddin Bahmani (838-1335 Hegira /862-862 A.D) and he was used to staying at Bider. In the above books, the details about his nature of  service are not available. During his stay at Bidar, the event of Brahman girl’s kidnapping case  was happening and she was taken to the royal palace. So, for this reason, he wore his military uniform and he was entered into the royal palace to protect the Brahman girl. For this event, it is possible that  Syed Ismail Shah Qadri was an employee of Sultan Alauddin Shah Bahmani.

The Event of Brahman girl.

     Sultan Humayun Shah Bahmani was famous and well known for his bad deeds, atrocities, and problems. So, for this reason, he became well known and famous as cruel ruler of the Bahmani Kingdom of Deccan. Due to atrocities and oppressions of this Sultan when royal courtiers before their departure to royal palace visit used to prepare their last advises because there were no chances of a safe return from there. So any attempt against his atrocities and oppressions of the Sultan was not only difficult but its a hard task and endeavor in this matter. Due to the  above great event, it is said that Syed Shah Ismail Qadri was a true follower of Islam and he was struggling against atrocities and injustice and protected justice, conduct and character in this matter. There was no discrimination of caste and creed with him and he was used to helping needy and helpless persons upon the difficulties and problems and in these endeavors he was always  successful  due to kind help  and support of Allah.

    As per references from following books, the details of Brahman girls’ event is mentioned as follows.

  1. Tadhkirta Qadri.
  2. Hadiqa Rahmani.
  3. Tariq Khurshid Jahi.
  4. Tariq Rashiduddin Khani.

    Sultan Humayun Shah Bahmani was well known due to his bad character and bad conduct and for this reason, his name became well known as the cruel (zalim) king of Bahmani kingdom. During his rule, this event was happening. There was one Brahman neighbor of Syed Ismail Shah Quadri and his daughter was very beautiful and lovely  and she was used to visiting him and pay her respect and honour to him. When she  was becoming an adult  then  the news of her beauty was reached to the Sultan so he was given instructions to the royal servants to bring her to the palace by force. So as per order of the Sultan she was taken by the royal servants from her parent’s house and  she was presented in the palace of the Sultan. Upon this event, the parents of the girl were approached Syed Ismail Shah Quadri  for his kind help for the early recovery of the girl. Upon informing the details of kidnapping case of the girl the parents were  requested his kind help in this matter so that the girl will be free from the royal palace.

     Upon hearing all details of the case  Hazrat Ismail Quadri was much worried   and  became upset and angry due to the bad act of kidnapping case  of the Sultan  and  also due to great injustice in this  matter.  So he wore his military uniform and was entered into the palace without any problems and difficulties despite huge security measures at the royal palace due to the kind help of Allah. Upon his entry  into the place there he was watching that the girl was decorated well in best royal dress and was presented before the Sultan. When the girl saw him there then she was standing and ran towards him and came into his custody and control. So the Syed Shah Ismail Qadri  took her and went out of the palace safely without any difficulty and problem even though there were many thousand security guards were there to protect the palace.

        Upon reaching the residence of the girl’s house , he was handed over the girl to the parents and instructed  them to leave the place and to go some other place for the safety measure in this matter  and he assured them  that there will be a great help of Allah with them and Allah will protect the girl and help them so in this way they will be safe and secure in this problem.  Upon this work, he was come to his house and took his three sons and wife on high-speed horses and went away from the city of Bidar   and they all went towards the western direction.

 Some clarification of Brahman girls’ event.

  1. Tadhkira Qadri. 2. Hadiqa Rahmani. 3. Tariq Khurshid Jahi. 4.Tariq Rashiduddin Khani.

    In the above four history books, the event of Brahman girl’s details is included but the authors of these books have not mentioned the following details.1. When this event was happening and the period of Sultan. 2.The  year in which  war took place between the Sultan and Ismail Shah Qadri and the period of war.3. Battlefield details.

The explanation of the above  matters  is  as follows.

    In this matter it is required  to know which Sultan of Bahamani kingdom  was ruling with its capital  of Bider  during  the period of Syed Ismail Shah Qadri and how many years he was ruled there and after this we have to study among those Sultans of the Bhamani Kingdom who was known for his  bad character and conduct and  was  voluptuous  as well as cruel. So that we should know the details of the Sultan who  was ruled during the period of Syed  Ismail  Shah Qadri.

History of Bahmani Kings of Bidar.

1.Sultan Ahmed Shah Wali Bahmani (1421-1435 A.D.).

2.Sultan Alauddin Thani  Bahmani    (1458-1457 A.D.).

3.Sultan Himayun Shah Bahmani       (1458-1461 A.D.).

4.Sultan Nizamuddin Shah Bahmani  (1461-1463 A.D).

5.Sultan Mohammed Shah Bahmani   (1463-1482 A.D.).

    Sultan Humayun Shah Bahmani’s mausoleum was damaged partly due to a lightening strike in the year 1300 A.H.  and in the above event only Humayun Shah Bahmani’s mausoleum was damaged and another four mausoleums of other kings of the Bahamani Kingdom were safe and there is no damage at all.  As a matter of fact, Sultan Humayun Shah’s mausoleum is teaching us  a lesson  in the royal grave yard of Bahmani Kings.

     During the period of Sultan Mohammed Shah Thani, prime minister Emaduddin Mahmood Gawan (870-886 Hegira.) was killed by Sultan due to a conspiracy case  against  this most famous and able prime minister of the Bahmani Kingdom on 5th Safar 886 Hegira and his mausoleum is available in the Governalli area of Bidar . He was prime minister during a period of Ismail Qadri in between 870-882 Hegira.  The five mausoleums of the Sultans of Bahmani Kingdom are available near Istore  area  near Bidar  on the eastern side of the same line.

     After knowing the details of the rulers of the Bahmani Kingdom who ruled Bahmani Kingdom during the period of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri and now it is required to know in this matter the name of the Sultan who was known for his bad conduct and character and who was cruel and who was voluptuous so that we should able to know the details of  the kidnapping  of a Brahman girl by that Sultan and  in this case so we have to study biography details of all Sultans of Bahmani Kingdom. So actually it is not possible to discuss biographical details of all Sultans in this small magazine. But myself as per the basis of my studies of books and knowledge in this matter so I am in a position to give my opinion that in all kings only Sultan Humayun Shah Bahmani was cruel,  and voluptuous  and was known for his bad character and conduct and for this reason all historians have given his title as zalem (cruel). In the  history books, there are many events are recorded about  Sultan  Humayun Shah’s  life details and also his many  cruel events , bad conduct and character  are found in the above books. But in the following, some selected important events of his period are mentioned which are as follows.

     So upon the study of these details, we can able to know about the details of kidnapping case of Brahman girl which was happening during the period of  Syed Shah Ismail Qadri.

    1.As per author  of the book Maqzan Kramat translated by Mohammed Kareemuddin that till the life of  Sultan Alauddin Bahamani  great pious personality of his time Hazrat Maqdom Sheikh  Ibrahim Multani was used to visit the royal court of  the Sultan. The Sultan was a great admirer of him and he used to respect him greatly. He was always kind to him and used to grant many favours and was used to ready always for his hospitality and service and for this reason he favoured him  as the royal court member. Upon the death of Sultan Alauddin his son Sultan, Himayun Shah Bahmani was crowned and he became the second Sultan of the great Bahmani Kingdom  of  Deccan. This Sultan was a great ruler of his time  and who  was involved in a large number of atrocities and problems to the peoples of the kingdom and nobody was not safe and  free from his injustice and hardships in the kingdom. For the above reasons all peoples in the kingdom were unhappy and in the condition of problems and difficulties and there was no peace and comfort  available to the general and as well as special persons and even   the members of royal palace were not free from the problems and hardships. His list of oppressions is as follows.

  1. He had killed a large number of innocent persons.
  2. He had killed a large number of the royal court members who were   sufferings   due to hunger in the loneliness.
  3. He had killed all family of the members of the culprits.
  4. He used to fulfill his sediment desires with girls and boys of the general persons.
  5. He was used to capturing new brides at the time of their wedding night and were used to take to the palace and upon spoil of the virginity of the brides and he  used to send back  to the  bridegroom’s houses.
  6. He used to kill royal court members and a general person without any reason and fault as per his own wish and desire.
  7. His royal court members before visiting the palace used to prepare their last advises as there was no guarantee of their lives in the court of Sultan due to his cruel habit.
  8. He used to spoil virginity of many thousand women and due to above details of Sultan’s cruelties everybody can think the dangerous situation which was prevailed during the time of above Sultan of Bahmani Kingdom. All his period was covered in the above dangerous deeds and Satanic acts. Many persons due to royal problems and difficulties were migrated to the other places for their safety and security and they also left their properties in the kingdom.

     Hazrat  Maqdum Sheikh Ibrahim Multani was  discontinued the visit of royal court due to the atrocities and the bad character of Sultan Humayun Shah Bahmani  and so he was used to staying in his residence.  There is a limit of everything and every problem. So when his oppressions were reached at its height   then  the following  event was happening and which ended his cruel rule.

    That once  Sultan was coming in the palace and he was in drunkard condition and he was seen by one royal Turkish lady in the shape of pig as she was a pious personality of the palace and she was a master  at the archery  so she was perfect  in blowing of arrows and for the above reason she  was blown an arrow at him and the arrow  was touching his head causing his immediate death on the spot.

    As per above details, it is also clear that during the time of Ismail Qadri another pious personality of his time Maqdom Sheikh Ibrahim Multani who has died on the 7th Jamad Thani in the year 865  Hegira   and who was also unhappy with the Satanic acts and atrocities of Sultan Humayun Shah Bahmani.

  1. As per reference from  the book Tariq Farista translated by Mohammed Fida Ali Taleb that  Sultan was very unkind to the general as well as special persons and there was no decrease of his oppressions . Always Muslim and non-Muslim persons of his kingdom were suffering heavy losses and faced many problems and difficulties by the Sultan’s injustice and punishments. The Sultan always disrespected women and daughters of the public and fulfilled his sediment desires by  his Satanic acts  and deeds  and  so, for this reason, the situation becomes worse . It will be used to happen that due to the royal orders  the brides were taken to the royal palace and used to be returned back after two days to the bridegroom’s house after spoiling of the virginity of brides by Sultan Humayun Shah. Also, royal court members were used to be killed. Ministers and royal court members upon their visit to the court were used to preparing their last advises and give the same to their families as there was no surety and guarantee of  safe and secure return of them from the royal court of the Sultan.

     Due to the prayers of the mankind, the Sultan was becoming seriously ill and he was died on 28th Ziqad in year 865 Hegira and due to his death peace and safety was returned back in the  Bahmani Kingdom.

     As per my opinion, it is correct that his last advice helped Sultan Humayun Shah Bahamani and he was cured well and became healthy again. But he was in the habit of atrocities and cruelties so he continued   these things on his public persons and on their family members  and  on royal court servants. So, for this reason, everybody not only in the royal palace but in all over his kingdom there was a condition of un-happiness and problems. Due to the above condition of great difficulties and problems one  person Shah Khan  who was an emasculate person and  he was acting as the custodian of  the royal palace  conspired with Negro lady servants of the palace and were successful in this matter and  they have killed him as one lady servant killed him with  the wooden stick when the Sultan was sleeping in his royal palace in drunkard condition.

    2.As per reference  from the book Gulzar Shahi written by Mufti Ghulam Sarwar  who was mentioned  this event that due to his sediment desires  Sultan’s  apparitions were reached at its heights. Every virgin bride and women were used to be taken to the royal court at the time first wedding night and upon spoil of their virginity of the brides and  women  and  they were used to  be sent back to the bridegroom’s houses after two days. Sultan   also used to kill his newly married wives after two or three days of their marriage.

  1. Bashir Ahmed in his book History of Bijapur was mentioned that upon death of Sultan Alauddin his son Humayun Shah Bahmani was crowned and who was famous for his bad conduct and character and the above author also was mentioned about  mausoleum of  Sultan Humayun Shah Bahmani in his above book on page 148-149  that it was damaged due to lightning strike which have occurred in the year 1300 Hegira. At that time when he was present in Bidar and due to the above  event  mausoleum’s half portion was damaged and its other half portion is not good in condition. The author also mentioned that the boundary walls of the mausoleum and the grave were damaged severally and there  is no mark of grave and boundary walls were found. In the mausoleum, donkeys used to stay and take rest and live there and the persons used to pass urine there.

        It is a fact that  Sultan Humayun Shah’s mausoleum was damaged by a lightning strike. Mohammed Zaheeruddin in his book about Sultan Ahmed Shah Wali Bahmani has mentioned that Sultan Humayun Shah’s mausoleum was damaged but he was not agreeing with the author of  the book  History of Bijapur that the boundary walls and grave of Humayun Shah Bahmani were also damaged. As the compiler of this book was visited  Bidar on 11th August  in the year 1975 for  the collection of  life details of  hazrat Ismail Shah  Qadri  for writing this magazine and he was also visited places Astur, where there are five royal mausoleums of the Bahmani Kingdom, were available. In this area, he was found boundary walls of  the  mausoleum of  Sultan Humayun  Shah Bahmani and his grave  are  available there in good condition. As per above details, Sultan Humayun Shah’s half portion of the mausoleum was damaged by  a lightning strike which is correct but at that time one-fourth portion of the  mausoleum was still available in good condition. It is noted that  during the period of Sultan Ahmed Shah Wali Bahmani the capital from Gulbarga to Bidar was shifted in the year 1430A.D.

    As Sultan Humayun Shah Bahmani  was famous and well known for his oppressions  and he was the killer of many innocent persons and so he is called a great sinner of  his time and cruel king so, for this reason, he became famous in the history of the Deccan as cruel (Zalim) king. This shows nature’s punishment on Sultan Humayun Shah’s  mausoleum.  His least cruel act is that he used to call brides in their first  wedding  nights to the royal palace to spoil  the virginity of the brides.

4.As per  the history book of Tariq Deccan  written by Abdul Majid Siddiqui ,the details of his  atrocities are as follows.

    His last period was full of his atrocities and great problems and hardships to the peoples of the kingdom. Due to this reason his royal court members and ministers used to prepare their last advises and give the same to their members of  the families at the time of their visit to the royal palace as there was no guarantee of safe and secure return back to their residences. Upon study of the above six references from the above six books of history, it is proved that the event of Brahman girl was happening during the period of Sultan Humayun Shah Bahmani in the period of 862-865 Hegira .

War period.

    There are many books available with details of war between  Sultan Humayun Shah Bahmani and  Syed Ismail Shah Qadri but in those books there  are no  details  about the month and year in which  this  war took place. The event of Brahman girl was happening during the rule of  Sultan Humayun Shah Bahmani so, for this reason, it is possible that the war took place in between them in the year 862-865 Hegira.

Battlefield.

     Upon study of above historical books, it was not known  that where the war took place. But in this connection there is a tradition that the war took place in the battlefield near Kumar Chincholi village in which  the Sultan’s army was defeated by  Syed Ismail Shah Qadri and it was  also known that many soldiers were killed  and were buried in the Kumhar Chincholi village and  this information was  also confirmed by the following persons.

1.Mohammed Ismail Tahenu aged 95 years old who was  a servant and  custodian of the shrine of Ghod Wadi Sharif.

2.Mohammed Faizuddin Ling aged 85 years who was a servant and a member of  the receiver on the board of the shrine.

3.Mohammed Mastan Ustad aged 80 years resident of Kumhar Chincholi village.

     As per reference from the book Tadhkira Qadri, this village is four kilometers away from the God Wadi Sharif village.

     As per references from  the books of Tadhira Qadri, Tariq Khurshid Jahi, Tariq Rashid Khani and Hadiq Rahmani which were added in the previous pages of the magazine that Sultan Humayun Shah Bahmani was sent his army to arrest of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri so it is possible that the army personnel went to many places  for his search and reached to Kumhar Chincholi village and at this place war took place between the army of  Sultan Humayun Shah and  Syed Ismail Shah Qadri. So it is possible that many army personnel were killed and were buried in Kumhar Chincholi village. As per other consideration, the following holy persons and friends of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri   were also taking part in the war and their details are as follows

 

  1. Bahauddin Bag Mar and his grave is available in Kumhar Chincholi village.

2.Nather Shah Wali and his grave is available in the Masimdu village in Bhalki Taluk.

                  The  mausoleum of Hazrat Khwaja Bande Nawaz.

 

    There is tradition and some other details are available that  Syed Shah Ismail Shah Qadri was taking part in the construction  work of the mausoleum of Hazrat Khwaja Bande Nawaz  during his stay at Gulbarga but he did not accept any amount of the  labour wages. As per this tradition,  Syed  Shah Ismail  Qadri was taking part in  participation in construction work of the mausoleum of Khwaja Bande Nawaz in Gulbarga daily but he hid not accept daily wages.

     There is an old way from  Boulder to Gulbarga through Noabad, Khanapur, Dhanora, Janti, Ghodipaga, Masimdu, Sinkara, Kumhar Chincholi, Ghodwadi Sharif. He was used to absenting at the time of disbursement of daily wages so that he will not receive a number of wages. But the custodian of the small shrine of Gulbarga  Syed Shah Qutubullah has rejected the above tradition and he was mentioned another tradition in this matter and its details are as follows.

    Another holy personality of his time  Mastan Qadri who  was a great devotee of Khwaja Bande Nawaz  was coming to Gulbarga when Hazrat Syed Asghar Mohammed al-Hussaini was  custodian  of the shrine and at that time  Hazrat Mastan Qadri came there and was taking part in the construction  work of the mausoleum of Hazrat Khwaja Bande Nawaz  during his stay at Gulbarga and  he did not accept any labour wages. Hazrat Syed Asghar Mohammed al-Hussaini was died on 21th Muharram 832 A.H. and his grave is available in Rouza Khurd in Gulbarga. Mastan Qadri’s Urs (death anniversary) is celebrated as per following programs.

On 11th Zil Hajj Sandal ceremony

On 12th  Zil Hajj lights are illuminated

On 13th Zil Hajj  visits of the shrine

     His grave is situated in Teen Sedhi in Rouza Khurd in Qutub Shahi Mosque in Gulbarga. So it famous that Hazrat Asghar Mohammed al-Hussaini was seen  Hazrat Khwaja Bande Nawaz in his dream and he told him  that  Mastan Qadri is his friend so he should be  not  be allowed to participate in the construction work of his mausoleum and he  was instructed  further in this matter that he should be treated as a guest in the shrine.

    As there is a difference in the above two traditions and details and also there is no reference from any book available on this matter. So it is also possible that with Syed Shah Ismail Qadri , Mastan Shah Qadri  was also participated in the construction work of the mausoleum and both of them might not have collected their  daily wages there.

Arrival.

    Upon his success in the war with an army of  Sultan Humayun Shah Syed, Shah Ismail  Qadri came to the Ghod Wadi Sharif village along with his three sons and his wife  and  before his arrival this village was known as Wadi village. As per references of books Tadhkira Qadri, Tariq Khurshid Jahi, Tariq Rashiduddin Khani and Hadiq Rahmani, the details of the arrival of Syed  Shah Ismail Qadri are mentioned as follows.

    1.After the war, he was entered into the area of the Ghod Wadi Sharif village and he was standing on the top of the mountain which is near Ghod Wadi village and  was blown an arrow and was asked his servants to bring back arrow up on marking the place where it will be found . So the servants did as per his instruction in this matter. Upon this Syed, Ismail Qadri gets down from the mountain and he visited the marked place did meditation they’re in standing position.

2.As per reference from the book of  Tariq Khurshid Jahi and Tariq Rashid Khani  the description of  this event is as follows.

    He reached the top of the mountain which is located at the front side of the Ghod Wadi Sharif village and  upon his success of the war with Sultan Humayun Shah Bahmani. He was standing there and was blown an arrow from the mountain. So the servant marked the place and brought the arrow from there. He came from the top of the mountain and  he visited the place where an arrow was found and at the same place, he settled down there.

     3.The author of the book Hadiqa Rahmani wrote the following details in this matter.

   “ He was blown an arrow from the top of the mountain and was settled down at the place where an arrow was found.”

    In this connection, there is a tradition  that there is a mountain in the Ghod Wadi Sharif village and in the beginning he went to the top of the mountain in Ghod Wadi Sharif village and this mountain which is situated near the water tank on the north side of the village. As per one tradition, in the beginning, one person Ogher Patel was objected for his stay on the mountain and for this reason Syed Shah Ismail Qadri was upset and angry in this matter. So upon the departure of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri from that area Ogher Patel was dying from some serious deadly diseases  and due to many problems. So, for this reason, Syed Shah Ismail Qadri  was wanting to leave that place and  he was blown an arrow from the top of the mountain  and he asked his servants to  mark the place where it will be found.

      So the servant went to that place to bring an arrow and when servant took out the arrow which was fixed on the ground and then spring of water started from the ground. Syed Shah Ismail Qadri, his sons, and his wife came there and did ablution and  started prayers and worship there. After this event  he has blown another arrow in the western direction and which went into the thick forest area and he  asked his servants to bring back the arrow from there but  the servants were not found it and could not trace in the forest area. So Syed Shah Ismail Qadri went there and found the arrow which was fixed on the ground. So he settled down there and also died there.

 Salik Majzub

     His condition was  as follows.

     As per reference of the biography books of Syed  Shah Ismail Qadri it is confirmed that the above of the sons of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri  had no  sons and these details about their sons are found correct. In the shrine area of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri in Ghod Wadi Sharif, the following  graves are available.

  1. Grave of Hazrat Zahra Be .2. Three graves of his sons. 3. Two graves of his servants.

     So in this matter, it is not known that the three sons whether married or not.? It is  not un-necessary to mention here that in the shrine of Syed Shah Ismail  Qadri there is no chain of shrine custodians from his line of generation. So, for this reason, servants and custodians used to perform service in the shrine since a long time. It is well-known fact that there  are 500 families available there who belongs to servants and  custodians  of the shrine  building and they use to perform their  weekly service on Thursdays and Wednesdays and on annual Urs (death anniversary) regularly on their turn basis  with much devotion and respect and this process has continued for many centuries.

1.Syed Mahtab Qadri.

     He was the elder son of Syed  Shah Ismail Qadri and who was famous for his miracles. But his date of birth and date of death is not known. But in the light of below event of a stick of a date liquor tree, it can be said that he was dying during the life of Syed Ismail Shah Qadri.

The event of a stick of date liquor tree .

     The event of a stick of the date of the liquor tree of Syed Shah Mahatab Qadri is very well known and famous. The importance of this event is very great because it is connected with the death of Syed Mahatab Shah Qadri. The author of the book Hadiqa Rahmani  was mentioned this event in his book as follows. That one day Syed Shah Ismail Qadri was watching  the digging work of the wall’s foundation and at that time Syed Shah Mahatab Qadri came there by holding the stick of a date liquor tree in his hand. So Syed Shah Ismail Qadri was upset and angry with him upon seeing the date liquor stick in his hand because he thought  that he would drink date liquor afterward. So, for this reason, he asked his son to enter into the foundation of the wall and  so he was entered  alive into the foundation of wall sincerely and in this way he was left this world.

This event is described in Hadiqa Rahmani as follows.

    “This  is a famous event  that one day Syed Shah Ismail Qadri was watching  the digging work of wall foundation and at that time his son Syed Shah Mahatab Qadri came there by holding the stick of a date liquor tree in his hand. So, for this reason, he was upset and angry with his son in this matter and was told him that in future it is possible that he will drink date liquor so for this reason  he was asked him to enter into the foundation of a wall. When he was entered alive into the foundation of a wall then he has filled the foundation of the wall with soil and one wall was constructed there. But that  grave is coming outside of the foundation of the wall slowly.”

    As per reference of the book Tariq Khurshid Jahi and ‘Tariq Rashiduddin Khani, the details of this event are as follows. Among the miracles of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri’s sons , Syed Shah Mahatab Qadri is well known and famous. It is said that his grave is at the foundation of the wall and it is coming outside of the foundation of a wall slowly and this shows his great miracle. It is known in the shrine that his grave level will become equal with some graves which are there in the outside area.

     For the above event, there is another tradition which is available that Syed Shah Mahatab Qadri was going somewhere so he requested his father’s  permission in this matter so he was asked him that  during his journey  he should not enter into  the jungle of the  liquor date trees under any circumstances.

    Upon his father’s permission, he was proceeding on his journey. But due to the problem of his horse obstruction in the way  he took a stick of a date liquor tree which was lying on the way and used it to control the horse and to solve the hindrance of horse and  he was returned back to his house with a stick of a date liquor tree in his hand due to  the  above circumstance and situation. So, for this reason, his father was upset and angry upon seeing the stick of a date liquor tree. So he ordered him to enter into the foundation of the wall and he was entered there immediately. In this way, he was buried alive in the foundation of a wall.

     In the light of above event, it is clear that Syed Shah Ismail Qadri was against  liquor, date liquor and he was also against the things of liquor date trees. In this matter, he was not in favour of any indulgence in this respect. For this reason, he has punished his son because he was used date liquor  tree stick  for his horse obstruction. This event also shows that  Syed Shah Mahatab Qadri was very sincere and obedient  son of  Syed  Shah Ismail Qadri. So, for this reason, he  was acted upon his father’s instruction and was entered alive bravely into the foundation of the wall without any hesitation. In this way, he was given importance to sincerity and obedience to his father than his   life.

Syed Shah Manjle  Shah Hussaini.

    There is a tradition which is famous about him is that he was the spiritual master of his son Syed Mahatab Qadri. It is not known what knowledges he was obtained from his spiritual master and for how many years he was studying with him. He belongs to the sons of  Hazrat Khwaja Bande Nawaz of Gulbarga. The details of his date of birth and date of death are not available in the books. But in this matter, it is said that  he belonged to the 9th century period. He left no sons after him. His mausoleum  is available in Hanchal village which is situated one mile away from Ghod Wadi Sharif  on  the eastern side in Humnabad  taluk of  Birdar district and the  mausoleum which was constructed  over his grave and which seems to be very old.

   Every year Urs (death anniversary) ceremony  is celebrated and people from various walks of life, irrespective of caste and creed, assemble to celebrate the Urs (death anniversary) which takes place on the 14,  and 16 day of Zil-Qa`dah of Muslim calendar at the famous  dargah (shrine) in Hanchal village every year.

Hazrat Khwaja Bande Nawaz 721-825 Hegira.

Death.

    As his life history is not available in any book and in the same way the details of his death are not known in this matter. So the date of death and year is not available in any book. Some authors are agreed that he was died in Ghod Wadi Sharif  village without completion of his stay of 40 days there. But above reference seems to be not correct because during the rule Sultan of Humayun Shah Bahmani (862-865 Hegira ) he fought with Sultan due to the event of the Brahman girl and upon  success in the war he came to Ghod Wadi Sharif village and as per reference from  the book Tariq Khurshid Jahi, Tariq Rashiduddin Khani,  and Hadiqa Rahmani he was died in the year 882 Hegira and in this way he may  have stayed in Ghod Wadi Sharif  village for a period about 17-20 years and afterwards he may  have died in Ghod Wadi Sharif village.

     As per reference of the book Tariq Qadri in which it was mentioned that he was entered alive into the earth along with the horse and  so it may say that  Allah’s knows better  in this matter. It is famous and well-known fact that holy pious persons of Allah who used to enter into the earth in the alive position. So Syed Ismail Shah Qadri was instructing his son to enter into the earth and also he was preferred to enter into the earth. A reference from the book Tariq Qadri is mentioned as follows.

     That  as per tradition of some pious persons he was entered into the earth and as per another tradition of  some persons he was died at Ghod Wadi Sharif  and he was not completed his stay  of  40 days there and he was buried there.

Death Record.

       As per following four books of history his date of death is as follows.

S.No.  Name of book                     Day   Date       Year

  1. Tariq Khurshid Jahi Thu    –          882  Hegira
  2. Tariq Rashiduddin Khani Thu    –          882  Hegira
  3. Hadiqa Rahmani Thu    –          882  Hegira
  4. Tadhkira Auliya Deccan     Thu    –           861  Hegira

To know the correct year of death among following two years.

1) 861  Hegira

2) 862  Hegira

     We have to check details of annual Urs (death anniversary) ceremonies  records  in the book  Aina Deccan  written by Mir Qamar Ali Baqamar in which it was mentioned  records of every year of  Urs (death anniversary) which are  celebrated in the month of Zil-Hajj.

     His 512th Urs (death anniversary) was celebrated with the following the schedule  and  the details of programs  are as follows.

On 29th Zil Hajj Sandal ceremony on 1394  Hegira.

On First Muharram 1395 Hegira illumination of lights.

On 2nd Muharram 1395  Hegira recitation of Quran.

So please study the following details of Urs (death anniversary) records.

    If suppose his year of death is on 882  Hegira So his first annual Urs (death anniversary) was celebrated on 29th Zil Hajj on 883 Hegira and his 512th annual Urs (death anniversary) was celebrated as per following details.

   In the year of death add a number of Urs (death anniversary) and find the following details.

883+511 = 1394 A.H. Zil Hajj.

   The above calculation will prove the following details.

1.His 512th Urs (death anniversary) was celebrated on 29th Zil Hajj in the year 1394 Hegira and it proves that first Urs (death anniversary) of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri was celebrated on 29th Zil Hajj 883 Hegira. In this way his date of death will be 882 Hegira which is found correct and right.

     It is true and correct that Syed Shah Ismail  Qadri was in service of Sultan Alauddin Bahmani (883-862 Hegira) and during the rule of Sultan Humayun Shah Bahmani (862-885 Hegira) he was freed the Brahman girl from the royal palace so, for this reason, his year of death is 861 Hegira is not correct and right but his  year of death 882 Hegira is correct.

    Since a long time Syed Shah Ismail Qadri’s Urs (death anniversary) used to be celebrated on 29th Zil Hajj and as per reference of book Aina Deccan in which it is added that the month of Urs (death anniversary) as Zil Hajj. So it’s correct that he left this world on 29th Zil Hajj.

    In this matter, we can say that his date of death is as follows.

Thursday 29th Zil Hajj 882 Hegira and corresponding to April 1478 A.D.

Miracles of Syed Ismail Shah Qadri.

    As a matter of fact,  there are many traditions of miracles and the favours of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri  are well  known and famous but few of them are as follows. It is well known fact that large numbers of devotees used to present on this occasion of Urs (death anniversary) and people from various walks of life, irrespective of caste and creed, assemble to celebrate the Urs (death anniversary) which takes place on the 29 day of Zil-hajj to first of Muharram of Muslim calendar at the famous Syed Ismail Quader’s dargah (shrine) in Ghod Wadi Sharif every year. Several hundred thousand devotees from near and far, irrespective of religion and beliefs, gather  there to seek blessings.   

    During the Urs (death anniversary) the visitors in large number will visit the shrine for the fulfillment of their desires and wishes for the sake of the Sheikh’s name.  In this way, the above ceremony will be arranged on a grand scale  and the visitors will use to  visit the mausoleum from near and far away places.

   On every Thursday large number of devotees and people from various walks of life, irrespective of caste and creed, assemble there and slaughter a large  number of goats  for Eisal Thawab (conveying  reward of virtuous  deed)  to  make an offering (Niwaz Sharif) in the name of  Syed Ismail Shah Qadri. As Ghod Wadi Sharif is a small village so there are no wide roads and streets, no big houses  and also there is no facility of water and drainage available there. For the above reason when there will be a large number of the slaughter of goats and for this reason due to the blood of goats and filth will be there and also there will be many problems of health and sanitation. But due to the slaughter of  a large number of goats  to make an offering  (Niaz Sharif) in the name of Syed  Shah Ismail Quader and  there are no such problems as well as  there are no bad effects are available there.

    As per reference from the book Tadhkira Qadri and  Hadiqa Rahmani in which it is mentioned that on every Thursday to make an offering (Niawz Sharif) in the name of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri many thousand goats are slaughtered but next day there are not available goat’s blood, dung, bones and for this reason the author of the above two books have mentioned the above situation as his greatest miracle.

    In this matter, author of book Tadhkira Qadri was mentioned the following details which are as follows. That his shrine is mataf (place of frequent visits) for the world  and   its people. So on every Thursday there will be the presence of a large number of people at the shrine  and several hundred thousand devotees from near and far, irrespective of religion and beliefs, gather  there for Niyaz Sharif (to make an offering in the name of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri) with the meat of  the slaughtered  goats. Due to the Sheikh’s miracle which is continued till now that next day blood, dung, bones are not found. (May Allah’s blessings be upon him).

    As per author of book Hadiqa Rahmani who was mentioned his report of the visit of Ghod Wadi Sharif  which is as follows.

     “ He was reached Ghod Wadi Sharif in the month of  Ziqad in the year 1286 Hegira on Thursday and  he was visited holy shrine of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri and he found that  there are large  numbers of devotees were present there and  on this occasion from various walks of life, irrespective of caste and creed,  were assemble there  and to offer Niyaz Sharif  (to make offering in the name of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri) and  prepare curry and nan (bread) and there will be slaughter of goats for Niyaz Sharif (to make offering in the name of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri ) and next day in the morning there will  not  found the  bones, dung, and marks of all these things were also not found on the ground.”

     In this connection Mr. Ghulam Mahmood  who collector of Chatgupa district and his letter number  2 is presented as follows which was written to the Organizing Committee of Shrine of Ghod Wadi Sharif about tender work of slaughter house at Ghod Wadi Sharif  which is  as follows.

   “As the applicant was mentioned about filth which is available there which  is totally  wrong and baseless. I have experience of four years with me and now it is the fourth time that I have visited this holy shrine and say in this matter that despite the large number of slaughter of goats on Thursday but on Friday on any place in any house  or in any ground there is not available  any filth  so this is a matter of  great surprise. During the summer season when there will be a large number of visitors and it was known that there will  be a slaughter of 1500-2000  number  of goats on  Thursday. And at that time there will be no blood, bones and filth will not be found on Friday. This act  belongs  to the great miracle of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri.”

    2.Syed Mohammed Sagaf wrote in his  book Hadiqa Rahmani on its page number 2 the following details  which are as follows.

      “ On the opposite side of the shrine, there is a small water tank is available and its water colour is red due to the colour of the soil of  Ghod Wadi Sharif. Those who visit there  for  Niyaz Sharif (to make an offering in the name of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri ) use the water from this tank. There is a small tank near the shrine building and its water colour is red due to its soil colour and the visitors used this water for the cooking purpose during their stay there. If somebody uses the water from other areas for the cooking purpose so in such case there will be possible  that there will be insects in the  food items. Many times this was happening that the visitors who brought water from other places and used that water for the cooking food items and found insects there in the food items.

    So, for this reason, the visitors were upset  in one such case and approached the shrine custodians’ help in this matter and the shrine custodian was brought  some water from the tank  and spread on the food items in which  there were found insects   upon cooking with water from other places and due to a living miracle of the Syed Ismail Qadri and upon reciting  Fatiha (the first verse  from the Quran)  the insects were no more there in the food items. This is his great live miracle which is still found in the shrine building and which shows that he was a great pious personality of his time in the area of the Deccan (South India). So It is famous  there that if water is not from the water tank then that water is not useful. So the water of  the above tank is used for cooking and also for bathing purpose there and in the shrine area Nasha  (intoxication) is prohibited.

    It is observed that  there are large numbers of devotees used to present on this occasion from various walks of life, irrespective of caste and creed, used to take a bath in the water tank and pay visits to the holy shrine. For Niyaz Sharif (to make an offering in the name of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri) and they  will use  tank water or spring water. It is also the fact that visitors as well local persons irrespective of caste and creed or religion will not dare to enter into the shrine in the condition of intoxication or drunkard condition. This method has been followed since many centuries.

  1. In the Islamic religion drinking of liquor is prohibited and for this reason, drinking of liquor is prohibited in the shrine area  and since  olden days visitors and local persons used to take care in this matter. So those who will not follow this instruction will face problems and difficulties in this matter.

    It is the fact that an event which was happening on 24th May in the year 1990 A.D. on Thursday that visitors from Rajul village and some other nearby villages of  taluk  Basva Kaliyan came to visit in lorries to Ghod Wadi Sharif for Niyaz Sharif (to make an offering in the name of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri) and visited  the shrine and in this group of visitors two newly married couples were also included. Upon their return journey one lorry met an accident and it was fell in the pit at  the southern side of the water tank near the shrine and in this accident nine persons were killed and 32 persons were injured seriously as per news report on ‘Siasat Urdu newspaper  Hyderabad’ on 26th May in the year 1990 A.D. It was known that the visitors  were in drunkard condition  and after their visit to shrine so in this way they suffered heavy losses in this matter.

4.It is stated that seven  visitors of the Tail Gaon village  of Parbhani taluk came from Urs (death anniversary) of Khwaja Bande Nawaz of Gulbarga and they were staying near spring area and with them some  persons who were  brought  beef meat food items in their  tiffin with them. They prepared rice and malida (bread mashed within butter oil and sugar) for the Fatiha (reciting  the first verse from the Quran). But  before  the Fatiha (reciting  first verse from Quran) insects were found in rice and Malida (bread mashed within butter oil and sugar) so, for this reason, the visitors were upset and approached the shrine custodian’s help in this matter and the shrine  custodian  was brought  some water from the tank and spread  water on the rice and Malida (bread mashed within butter oil and sugar) items in which  there were found insects  upon cooking as the visitors used beef food items during their stay in the shrine.

5.Upon reciting Fatiha ( the first verse of the Quran) and due to a living miracle of the Sheikh Sahib  all persons were seen  that there were no insects in rice and Malida (bread mashed within butter oil and sugar). This is his great live miracle which is still found in the shrine and which shows that he was a great pious personality of his time in the area of the Deccan (South India). This event was happening on 19th Ziqad  1348 Hegira in the shrine when visitors were brought  beef  food items in their tiffin upon their arrival to the shrine  for Niyaz Sharif (to make an offering) for Eseal Swab (for the conveying reward of virtuous  deed)  in the name of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri. So the custodian was asking  them  not to bring  the beef meat food items.

    It is a very interesting thing in Ghod wadi Sharif that now-a-days  local and outside visitors will not use beef  meat  before Niyaz Sharif (to make an offering) and reciting Fatiha (first verse of Quran). If somebody who  will use beef  meat food  meat items  then he will use to take a bath in the water tank of Ghod Wadi Sharif then he will participate in the preparation  work of Niyaz  Sharif (to make an offering) in the shrine area.

    It is also the fact  that all servants and  custodians of the shrine will not use beef  meat food items for a long time.

 5.It is said one person named as Mohammed Ismail who was blind  and who  was residing in the Alipur village of  Zaheerabad Taluk of Medak district visited the shrine after his cure at many places without any result in this matter. So he came there  upon knowing that  his disease is incurable and its  cure is not available in the hands of doctors. So upon his disappointment, he came to the shrine of Syed Shah Ismail Qadri in the year 1962 or 1963 and prayed at the shrine with his wasela (mediation). He used to visit the shrine in the morning and evening and used to pray for his cure. In the short period of 8 or 10 days time due to the grace of Allah he was recovering his  eyesight.

  1. This is a famous event of Mahatab Ali who was 60 old came from Gulbarga to Ghod Wadi Sharif. He  was suffering   from Qarash (itching) problem so he  was undergone his   very much cure  at many places but there was no benefit at all. So he went to the shrine of Hazrat Khwaja Bande Nawaz of Gulbarga in this matter but he was advised in a dream to proceed to the Ghod Wadi Sharif shrine in this respect. So he  was reached there and he was staying there for a period of one week. He was used  to presenting in the shrine daily and pray for his recovery from his disease. He was also used to do sweeping work of graves in the shrine area. Due to the kind grace of Allah he was benefitted in this matter and for this reason he was arranged stone   pavement work in the compound area of the shrine.

     Syed Shah Ismail Qadri was pious and possessed good conduct and character and  he was very kind  and used to help the poor and needy persons and he used to welcome guests in the house so in this way he possessed the good habits of the Sadat family members (descendant of the holy prophet through his daughter Hazrat Fatima). He used to like the learned persons very much.

Death and his mission work of Islam.

    Upon his arrival in the Gold Wadi village, he started his mission  work of calling the mankind towards the right path of Allah and due to his multi services and benefits  he was becoming well known and famous pious personality of his time in Bidar and Ghod Wadi Sharif  area. So, for this reason, the large number of people approached  towards him in this matter and  there were good  and positive results in their lives as they followed the tradition of Allah’s last prophet and Allah’s commandments for the success of their lives after the death.

    He came to Ghod Wadi Sharif and lived there for a period of 18 or 20 years and he was much busier in the multi-services for the mankind and as well as he was also very busy in the following.1.Worship. 2.Mystical exercise. The Sheikh left this world on 29th Zil Haj in the year 882  Hegira on the Thursday. There is a tradition which is well known and famous in the shrine area that he was entered  into the earth alive along with his horse.

 His live miracles.

This is his great live miracle which is still found in the shrine and which shows that he was a great pious personality of his time in the area of the Deccan (South India).
