His Holy Shrine is located at Fatehpur Shekhawati District Sikar 165 km away from Jaipur on N.H. 12.

Hazrat Khwajah Haji Muhammad Najmuddin Sulaimani Chishti Al-Farooqui As-Saeedi R.A. was born on the 3rd Ramzan-ul-Mubarak 1234 Hijri (1819 A.D.) in the house of Hazrat Shaikh Ahmed Baksh Naqshbandi Al Farooqui of Jhunjhunu city.

Hazrat Shaikh Ahmed Baksh Naqshbandi Al Farooqui was fore taught by the Great Almighty that he will have a son named Najmuddin would be a Borne Wali and Ghaus of his time. Hazrat Shaikh Ahmed Baksh Naqshbandi Al Farooqui belongs to the holy (Dynasty) race of the Second Caliph of the Muslim Ummah, “Hazrat Sayyedna Umar-e-Farooque” R.A. (through 36 Links) via the link of his great grandfather Sultanuttarekeen Hazrat Khwajah Sufi Hameeduddin Nagauri R.A. Khalifa e Khaas of Hazrat Khwajah GareebNawaz R.A (through 19 links).

One day while reading the book “Anees-Ul-A’arifeen” he read the speaking of Khwajah Habeebullah Quadri that, “Malla Shaikha Lahu Fa Shaikha Hus-Shaitan” that means one who had no Shaikh (Spiritual God Father), has the Iblees (Shaitan) as his Shaikh. After reading this Huzoor Najam Sirkar became very anxious and eager to find an appropriate Shaikh for himself. So in the Hijri 1252, during the Urs of Hazrat Khwajah GareebNawaz R.A., he reached at the holy shrine of the Khwajah-e-Buzurg and asked Hazrat Khwajah GareebNawaz R.A. for the Shaikh for himself, and got the direction from the Khwajah to reach Nagaur at the holy shrine of his great grandfather Hazrat Khwajah Sufi Hameeduddin Nagauri R.A. to get the direction about the Shaikh.

The Mission Of Mastan Baba

It is a well known historical fact that in spreading the ethical and spiritual values of Islam, major and effective contributions have been made by the walis of Allah (saints). It was their humanistic disposition and pity, which won over the hearts of lakhs of people. They made a direct contact with the masses, served and loved them, lived with them in the realisation of Eternal Truth

Dargah Shrief, a place where wishes and desires come true. Devotees from all over the world visit this Dargah to be blessed by Mastan Baba and to fulfill their desires. More often than not their wishes do come true and the wish fulfillment is usually followed by devotees offering flowers, gilaf (velvet cloth), ittar (non-alcoholic perfume) and sandal wood powder. Besides these offerings they also recite Quran, Nafal Namaz, Milad and Aayat-e-Karima and Khatam Khawajgan.

His shrine is situated in udaipur in Mallatalai area near rani road.

He is the one who is always engaged in ibadah of allah during his whole life time.his powers were hidden from the people of udaipur. but once he came into notice when one seasonal small river of udaipur get flooded and mastan baba was busy in zikr of allah on the bridge (there is some chilla is there on the bridge name of the bridge is ayad)soon the river get flooded and the water start overflowing .but it was a miracle that baba was calmly keep engaged in zikr and water didn’t even touch his feet.and keep flowing around him..many of the residents of udaipur had witnessed this although i did’t get the chance might be i was not born or too young ..eventually time passes he is like mastan might be he left udaipur after that incident. then before 12-13years a news has erupted in city that a darvesh had come in udaipur and he got seated in gulab bagh of udaipur under a tree and busy in zikr(gulab bagh is one of very extensive garden spread in area of few kms in mid of city)it was mastan baba people start calling him gulab bagh wale baba .muncipality of udaipur came in action they try their best to remove him from the garden as it was public property but useless .except allah(tabaaraka Wtaala) none can remove him here people start coming to visit him .

Whoever visit him will get his wishes fulfill.I too had a chance to visit him at that time i was only 13 years old.He was like zinda wali to us.But time came when Allah called his mehboob toward him and in 1998 Mastan baba ki rooh parvaaz kar gaye aur wo apne malike haq se jaa mile…..then too there was a great matter where to buried that soul althogh he take his last breath in gulab bagh he told that for him new gulab bagh will be bulit but at that time nobody understand what he mean…?


Then a current minister of indian govt Mr. C.M Ibrahim arrived at udaipur first time and he with the help of peole of city purchase a huge plot of land at outskirts of udaipur (which has now become very populous due to mastan baba’s karam)

now if u come and see really the mastan baba ‘ dargah had acquired a lot of greenery the smallplants which had grown 10-11 years before had become trees .it start looking like gulab bagh as mastan baba said..morever a beautiful masjid is under construction ….and poor people were feed daily through the langar organise by dargah committee.and a madarsa is also run to educate nearby children.

Dargah in Mandore – Rajasthan -INDIA

 

Mandore is a town located 9 km north of Jodhpur city, in the Indian state of Rajasthan.

Marwar : This kingdom, which became very powerful under the Rathore dynasty, used to welcome Muslim saints. Let us first mention the dargah located in the former capital of Mandore which until today is visited by devotees of all communities; the main centre of worship is the tomb of Ghulam Shah Qalandar, who is said to have been a follower of Khwaja Mu’in al-Din Chishti. The mosque and the shrine have been renovated at various times under the patronage of the Hindu Rathore rulers. In connection with the same, we should also mention the interesting case of the tomb-shrine located within the precincts of Mehrangarh Fort, in Jodhpur, which became the capital of Marwar in the fifteenth century when its founder, Rao Jodha, decided to build a fort on the top of a steep hill.

During the nineteenth century, war broke out between the two rival Hindu states of Marwar and Jaipur. The Muslim general Bure Khan fought bravely with his army of Pathans to defend the kingdom of Jodhpur. The alliance struck by the Jodhpur ruler with the Pathans of Nagaur proves once more that the image of Hindu-Muslim enmity is an artificial colonial and postcolonial construct.24 Bure Khan died during a battle and was buried on the spot. However, later, by order of the Maharaja of Jodhpur, his mortal remains were transported to the capital and a dargah was built to commemorate his martyrdom. Today, the small tomb-shrine which lies at the entrance of the fort, within the precincts of Mehrangarh, continues to be a sacred place. During the Navratra festival, the pilgrims are supposed to stop at this shrine to make some offerings before climbing to the top of the hill to worship the Goddess. Bure Khan is worshipped as a shahid by both Hindu and Muslims and is supposed to grant all sorts of boons to his devotees. The location of the tomb-shrine at the entrance of the Hindu fort does have a particular meaning: the saintly martyr has become the guardian and protector of the palaces and the temples that have been erected within the fortress.

Near Jodhpur, in the village of Khatu, was born a Muslim mystic known asShaykh Ahmad Khatu who was the disciple of the thirteenth-century Baba Ishaq Maghribi, the founder of the Maghribi Sufi tradition in India. Shaykh Ahmad Khatu later went to Gujarat where he is said to have exerted a great influence on Ahmad Shah I who founded the new capital of Ahmedabad. After his death, the Shaykh was buried there. His tomb, located within the imposing shrine complex located near Ahmedabad, at Sarkej, is still an important centre of worship.

Dargah of Pir Mastan – Sojat city-Rajasthan – India

Dargah of Pir Mastan.

Sojat is a city and a municipality in Pali district in the Indian state of Rajasthan. The Sojat city around Jodhpur is known for its fort, temples and Dargah of Pir Mastan. Sojat city of Jodhpur, Rajasthan is situated on the left bank of the Sukri River, near Pali town. It was earlier (in the ancient times) known as Tamravati. There is also a fort in Sojat city. The fort has a big reservoir and several temples like Sejal Mata, Chaturbhuj and so on. There is also an old temple of Chamunda Mata situated on top of one of the hillocks. For Muslims, there is the Dargah of Pir Mastan. It is a very popular dargah, specially thronged by Muslims at the time of Urs – a Muslim festival.

Another tourist attraction in Jodhpur Sojat city is the plantation of Mehendi trees. Mehendi is a herbal plant. Its leaves are squashed into a thin paste and applied on the hands and the feet, of particularly females, in various attractive designs. Many tourists (specially the foreigners) who happen to visit this city get their palms and feet decorated by the Mehendi of Sojat.

Hazrath Meeran Syed Hussain Shah

Taragad Fort – Ajmer, Rajasthan

Syed Meeran Husain (R.A.) – Taragard Fort It is a grand fort, located on a steep hill in south of Dargah Sharif, The height of the hill is 800 ft. During the reignof Rai Pithora, it was a famous and a strong fort and was considered it cannot be conquered.

Most of them were slashed. rest of them were awaken in a panic and started resisting.

But they were smaller in number than the powerful enemy. at last they all were martyred. the enemies fled before the break of the day. Meeran Husain Khatak (R.A.) was also martyred in the attack.


When the Muslims of the city heard the news of the bloodshed there was a mass mourning. Knowing about the tragedy, Khwaja Gharib nawaz visited the fort with his followers and after the Namaz-e-Janaza, burried the martyres of Taragarh. Presently the ruins of the fort are left, but however everyone visits the Dargah of Hazrat Meeran Husain Khatak (R.A.) to pay the tributes.

Hazrat Meeran Husain (R.A.) was a great abstemious saint. He mostly used to be at the service of Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) as a staunch follower. His Urs falls on 17th and 18th Rajab every year.
