Dargah of Panjatan Paak Paanch Peer is in Murud Janjira Fort -Maharashtra -INDIA.

 

Murud Janjira, Raigad, Maharashtra.

Dargah of Panjatan Paak Paanch Peer is in Murud Janjira Fort, 900 years back when African Businessman used to come to India they saw that this Dargah situated in the middle of the Ocean did not have  any protection walls and hence they purchased the land from local kohlis and started development on that Island. Later a fort was constructed on this Island. This fort happens to be the only fort which could not be captured in 900 years, Neither Moguls, Portugese, British nor Marathas could capture this fort which had blessings of Sufi Saint resting there…

Info taken from Online sources :

Murud-Janjira is the local name for a fort situated on an island just off the coastal village of Murud, in the Raigad district of Maharashtra, India.It was occupied by the Siddis and is famous for being the only fort along India’s Western coast that remained undefeated despite Dutch, Maratha and English East India Company attacks.

Origins of the name : The word Janjira is not native to India, and may have originated after the Arabic word Jazeera, which means an island. Murud was once known in Marathi as Habsan (“of Habshi” or Abyssinian). The name of the fort is a concatenation of the Konkani and Arabic words for Island, “morod” and “jazeera”. The word “morod” is peculiar to Konkani and is absent in Marathi.

Major features : Murud-Janjira Fort is situated on an oval-shaped rock off the Arabian Sea coast near the port town of Murud, 165km south of Mumbai. Janjira is considered one of the strongest marine forts in India. The fort is approached by sailboats from Rajapuri jetty. The main gate of the fort faces Rajapuri on the shore and can be seen only when one is quite close to it. It has a small postern gate towards the open sea for escape.

The fort has 19 rounded bastions, still intact. There are many canons of native and European make rusting on the bastions. Now in ruins, the fort in its heyday was a full-fledged living fort with all the necessary facilities, e.g., palaces, quarters for officers, mosque, a big fresh water tank, etc. On the outer wall flanking the main gate, there is a sculpture depicting a tiger-like beast clasping elephants in its claws. This sculpture, its meaning difficult to interpret, appears on many fort-gates of Maharashtra. The palace of the Nawabs of Janjira at Murud is still in good shape.

Originally the fort was a small wooden structure built by a Koli chief in the late 15th century. It was captured by Pir Khan, a general of Nizamshah of Ahmednagar. Later the fort was strengthened by Malik Ambar, the Abyssinian-origin Siddi regent of Ahmednagar kings. From then onward Siddis became independent, owing allegiance to Adilshah and the Mughals as dictated by the times.

History : Despite their repeated attempts, the Portuguese, the British and the Marathas failed to subdue the Siddi power and take over this fort. All of Shivaji’s attempts to capture Janjira fort failed due to one reason or the other.

When Sambhaji also failed, he built another island fort, known as Kansa or Padmadurg, just 9km north of Janjira. The Janjira state came to an end after 1947 with the merging of the princely states of the region with the Indian Union.

Sufi Shrines (Dargah) in Masure village in Malvan Taluka in Sindhudurga District, Maharashtra

Brief about Masure:

Masure is village in Malvan Taluka in Sindhudurga District, Maharashtra; from Mumbai it is around 530 kilometers (by NH-17 i.e. Mumbai – Goa Highway) and 12 hours drive by road, and by Railway it is 30 kilometer far from Kankavali (Name of Station on Konkan Railway Route) station and maximum 8 hours journey by train.

This village is a historic place as a place called “Asthana-e-Aulia Allah” because in only one village there were about 7 Dargah Sharif (4 built Dargah and 3 unbuilt only mazarsharif). I am attaching herewith photographs of all the 7 Dargah Sharif with this massage. From all the photographs one photograph of Hazrat Sayyed Ahemad Qadri Dargah Sharif, and other all the murid of Hazrat Sayyed Ahmad Qadri (R.A.) Sajjadil Baghdadi and one of nephew Hazrat Mustafa Qadri (R.A.) Sajjadil Baghdadi, I am briefing in short a true story about hazrat’s Karamat here below for your ready reference.

Brief story about Hazrat Sayyed Ahmad Qadri (R. A.) Sajjadil Baghdadi:

The time of this happening is between 14th – 16th century when ‘Ali Adil Raja’ (Adilshahi Rular) was in forced and ruling on whole South India including Maharasthra (Konkan), Goa, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. The days are like winter’s days, one day one Fakir i.e. Hazrat Sayyed Ahmad Qadri (R. A.) is arrived near to palace of ‘Ali Adil Raja’ and asked for one jug of water to do Waju and do Namaje-e-Juhar. But the head of security guard is refusing to give jug of water to do Waju and asked them to go away from the palace. They just see on the sky pray for water within next moment suddenly the rain is falling…continuously and stops suddenly. The Hazrat go away from him palace and do the Namaje-e-juhar and sit under the tree. After doing investigation from ‘Ali Adil Raja’ raja found the whole story from his head of security guard. After that Ali Adil Raja called Hazrat and say sorry about his servant’s misbehavior and then offer Hazrat to stay with him, but they refuse it, after some of the days Raja marry his daughter with Hazrat and asked them to choose any place from his ruling area. Hazrat decided to travel and asked to Raja where his heart says there he stay and he start his journey on a leaf of banana. When Hazrat came at place of Masure (in the time of Ali Adil Raja the name of Masure was Mahmoodabad) then Hazrat settle in Masure.

Hazrat’s Urse sharif is celebrate by the all Sayyed families on 12th Rabi-ul-sani because Hazrat not yet give any body date of his wafat and Hazrat from family tree of Hazrat Sayedena Gausepak’s family. Because of this reason Hazrat’s urse sharif is celebrating on 12th rabi-ul-sani.

In this Urse sharif all the residence of Masure village (e.g. hindu and other) also participated and give there nazro-niyaz and mannat etc..
