As salaam-o-was-salaam-o-alaikum ya Rasoolullah Sallallaho Alaihi was-salaam WA ala
habibeka WA as habibeka ya noor Allah sallalaho alaihi was salaam

In this century, when we are so surrounded by Nafs and the culture of Nafs, where sins are tolerated and considered a symbol of status, we have forgotten what is Iman? We say the words but we do not mean them. When we are faced with our consequences, our Iman is tested; we search for a shade to save us from ourselves and our problems. Those shades are Aulia Allah’s. O you who do not believe in Aulia’s, we feel sad for your loss and we thank Allah, even if we are Kufr or of different faith, our hearts have tasted of that peace of which you will never know. Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty (R.A.) is the giver of love. The love of a mother is a drop in the ocean of love of mankind the Aulia's possess. Those of who believe themselves to be Chishty, or Muslim are the ones who give, even a medicine a day to our parents or behave with Husn-e-sulookh. He gave from his own to poor and needy, whether its wisdom, its love, its riches, its Imaan and its Karam. He gives manifolds, because he is the Ameen (Keeper) of the wealth of Allah Ta’ala.

Love towards all malice towards none. For a human, it is very difficult to forgive others. Forgiveness is a balm. Once we forgive even if it a stone that hurt us and do not curse it back, and say it is just a stone, we should have seen it. Half of our pain is soothed because our heart is soothed. If we curse it, our pain increases. What about those hearts that do not have a drop of malice in them. The pure ones! They are forgiveness themselves, they are the givers. It hurts them when someone is hurt. They feel their pain and hurt. They bestow upon you.

Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty is the Aulia of heart. The word Moinuddin means spring or fountain of dean. According to Dalilul Arafeen written by Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Rasool Allah (S.A.W) bestowed "him (R.A.)" with viladat, and asked him (R.A.) to go to India. Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) replied, “He did not know where it is?” S.A.W showed him the map. Moinuddin (R.A.) believed in Allah Ta’ala and came to Ajmer. He talked with natives in his language but they understood it. It was a miracle of Allah.

Moinuddin imparted his spring of Imaan to many, one learned patience and drank of it so much that they was called Sabri (R.A.), one drank of it so much that they lived on poverty and was called khaki (R.A.). Such is the state of this spring that every corner of this Asian subcontinent is filled with spirituality. Wherever we turn, we find Allah under their reflex and shadow.


Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty (R.A.) was born in 542 Hijri in Sistan Khurasan (Eastern Persian Kingdom) under the reign of Sultan Sanjar. His father Hazrat Gayasuddin (R.A.) brought a mill and grape orchard. This area of Iran is still fertile in grapes cultivation. Khwaja Sahib lost his mother at an early age, and father in 551 AD. Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty (R.A.) looked after his property himself. His father’s knowledge became a part of his life. Khwaja Sahib loved children, orphans, poor and beggar from childhood. Hazrat Ibrahim Kandozi visited Khwaja Sahib (R.A.), on his orchard and Khwaja Sahib (R.A.) offered him grapes. Hazrat sahib was immensely happy with Khwaja sahib’s nature. He chewed chapattis and offered it to khwaja sahib (R.A.) and said to him eat it. And when Khwaja Sahib (R.A.) ate it, Hazrat Ibrahim Kandozi vanished. After this incident, Gharib Nawaz’s Heart did not wanted to stay in this world. He went into the search of Allah Ta’ala and looked for his Kurbaat. He searched for a Peer in the direction of Maghreb where land was filled with buzurghan-e-deen, but he could not find a peer. He walked on like an inner attraction was calling him. He walked towards Province Haroon. When he entered into the khanghah of Hazrat Khwaja Usman-e-harooni and felt he has reached the right place. He met his Peer and Peer understood that he has met a disciple he desired for, and Khwaja Sahib found what he seeks for. Hazrat Khwaja Usman-e-Harooni (R.A.) took him under the reflex of his pious soul and taught him divine knowledge for 20 years.

He took Khwaja Moinuddin to Kaaba; and said to Allah. “Allah you accept my Moin.” Answered from Kaaba, “We have accepted your Moin.” Hazrat Khwaja Usman-e-Harooni (R.A.) took Gharib Nawaz (R.A.) to Medina and was answered in his prayer as “Allah has accepted your Moin and we have also made him the shaikhul qutoob of waters and earth.” “Qutb, Qutub, Kutb, or Kutub (Arabic: قطب‎), literally means 'axis', 'pivot' or 'pole'. In Sufism, a Qutb or Kutb is the perfect human being, al-insān al-kāmil, who leads the saintly hierarchy. The Qutb is the Sufi spiritual leader that has a Divine connection with God and passes knowledge on which makes him central to (or the axis of) Sufism, but he is unknown to the world. There is only one Qutb per era and he is an infallible and trusted spiritual leader. He is only revealed to a select group of mystics because there is a "human need for direct knowledge of God." After this acceptance of his Mureed, Khwaja Usman-e-Harooni (R.A.) was very happy and bestowed onto him the tabarukkat of Chishty Silsila, that comes from Huzoor-e-pak (S.A.W) heart by heart. He advised to Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty (R.A.) that "do not expect anything from human beings, and do not live between populations." Hazrat Usman-e-Harooni kissed Khwaja Sahib’s forehead and said Moinuddin is Allah’s lover and I am proud of his mureedi. Gharib Nawaz then travelled to Ajmer from Kandhar, lahore and and had spiritual meeting with Hazrat Data Ghaj-E-Baksh (R.A.).
