Life

Syed Sirajuddin Muhammad, the son and successor of Burhanuddin Qutub-e-Alam, came to be called by the title of Shah-E-Alam, king of the world. His father Sheikh Burhanuddin, also known as Qutub-e-Alam, was the grandson of the celebrated Syed Jalauddin Hussain Bukhari of Uch, also known as Makhdoom Jehaniya Jehan Gasht. He arrived in Gujarat during the beginning of the fifteenth century during rule of Ahmed Shah I, settling on the outskirts of Ahmadabad.
Following the Suharwardi tradition, the family established close contact with the Gujarat Sultanate and later with Mughal rulers and played an active role in the social and political life of the city.
Shah-e-Alam, the eleventh among twelve sons, assisted his father, Qutub-e-Alam. An interesting miracle happened one day; while bathing in a water body, his feet hit upon something. The Sheikh remarked that he didn’t know whether the object was stone, iron or wood. Miraculously, the object turned into a mixture of the three materials and became a venerated relic.
Shah Alam was related to the royal houses of Sindh and Gujarat through marriage to Bibi Marqi, the second daughter of Jam Saheb of Sindh.
He spent six days a week in solitary meditation and received visitors only on Fridays, when open discussions were held. An account of the Friday gatherings was compiled in a seven volume manual titled, ‘Kunuz-e-Muhammadi’ by Sheikh Farid bin Daulat Shah Jilwani. The account is not traceable today. Under the Chishti influence, Shah-E-Alam became a lover of music and held qawaalis regularly.
He died on 20 Jumada al akhira 880 Hijri/1475 AD. The mausoleum was constructed by Taj Kham Narpali and now known as Shah-e-Alam’s Roza.
 The tomb of Hazrat Syed Shah-E-Alam

 

The tomb of Shah Alam, a mosque, tombs and Jama’at Khana (Assembly Hall) is the most famous religious centre among those still venerated by religious Muslims in Gujarat.
The tomb of the Sayid Shah Alam is situated roughly in the centre of the east end of this dargah. It is a majestic building on a square plan with a 12-pillared mausoleum with a high dome in the centre of the roof, surrounded by double corridors with 24 small domes on top. It has arch-shaped entrance on all sides. The main entrance on the west having a small dome projects out from the wall. On each wall of the mausoleum, there is an entrance in the centre. On either side of the entrance, there are three arch-shaped windows, over which an arch-shaped part covered by Jali Screen is formed. It helps giving dignity to this mausoleum.

HAZRAT SAYYEDNA SARKAR SHAH E AALAM radiyallahu anhu kabhi kabhi bajaae Quran o Hadis ke Dalaail pesh karne ke Aqli Dalaail ki roshni me bhi Masaail samjha diya karte the. HAZRAT MIR SAYYED AKHI ibne MAKHDOOM SAYYED YAHYA rehmatullah alayh ne bayan farmaya ke me ek martaba SULTAN MOHAMMAD SHAH ZAR BAKHSH ke Ahde Hukumat me Pattan (Paatan) me HAZRAT SAYYEDNA SHAH E AALAM radiyallahu anhu ke Doulatkade par muqim tha.”

💠 “Us waqt HAZRAT SHAH E AALAM radiyallahu anhu bhi Ahmedabad se Pattan tashrif laae hue the. Ek din ka zikr he ke Maghrib ki Namaz ki Azaan me Haazirin ne HUZUR SAYYED E AALAM sallallahu alayhi va sallam ka Naame Naami sun kar Apne Apne Angoothe chum kar Aankho se lagaae. Namaze Maghrib adaa karne ke baad mene HAZRAT ABDULLAH BURHANUDDIN QUTB E AALAM radiyallahu anhu se daryaft kiya : “Azaan me HUZUR E ANVAR sallallahu alayhi va sallam ka Naame Paak sun kar Angoothe chum kar Aankho se lagaane ki az rooe Shariat koi sanad bhi he?”

💠 “Itne me HAZRAT SARKAR SHAH E AALAM radiyallahu anhu tashrif le aae aur meri baat sun kar qabl iske ke HAZRAT QUTB E AALAM radiyallahu anhu kuchh irshad farmate, Aapne fil four irshad farmaya : “Hairat he Logo ki Haalat par ke Jab SULTAN MOHAMMAD ZAR BAKHSH ka naam sunte he to “Khalladallahu Mulkahu” kehte he, Sine par hath rakh kar sar kham kar ke Apni Aqidat va Mohabbat ka izhaar karte he us waqt koi kyu nahi puchhte ke inke is fe’al ki az rooe Shariat koi Sanad bhi he ke nahi lekin…..”

💠 “JInki Shan me HAQ TA’ALA ne farmaya ke HUZUR sallallahu alayhi va sallam ki Izaat va Touqir karo. Unki Taazim ke liye tavaqquf he aur Sanad Talash karte phirte he? Phir HAZRAT AMIR KHUSRU rehmatullah alayh ka ek Sher padha jiska tarjuma he ke…”

✨ “HUZUR sallallahu alayhi va sallam ka Naam sun kar Labo se mas karke Angoothe to chumte hi ho, kya ye nahi dekha ke us se pehle hont ek dusre ka bosa le lete he”✨

💠 “HAZRAT SAYYEDNA QUTB E AALAM radiyallahu anhu ne HAZRAT SHAH E AALAM radiyallahu anhu ki Zabaan se ye Guftagu sun kar farmaya ke : “Ye Farzand Darvesh he”. Phir HAZRAT SHAH E AALAM radiyallahu anhu se Mukhatib ho kar farmaya ke “MIYA MANJHLE ! Haqiqat me Aap Apne Jadde Amjad HAZRAT SAYYEDNA MAKHDOOM JALALUDDIN HUSAIN JAHANIYA JAHANGASHT radiyallahu anhu ke Ahvaal ke vaaris he.”
