New Turn in Life of
Chisty Baba Khwaja Garib Nawaz Chisty Ajmer Sharif Dargah Rajasthan India
As a will of Allah
when Khwaja Gharib nawaz (R.A) was at a small age of 14. his father left for heavenly
abode and he became an orphan. He inherited a garden and a mill from his father.
After few months of his father death his mother also left this transitory world.
Since his early age, Khwaja Sahib (R.A) was fond of the company of dervesh and fakirs
and had a great respect for them.
One day, as to routine when he was watering the plants , a Majzoob arrived there.
The Majzoob was SHEIKH IBRAHIM QUNDOZI (R.A). When Khwaja Sahib saw the old man,
He left his work and stepped forward and welcomed him.
He kissed the hand
of the old man, took him to tree and requested him to sit under its shadow. At that
time Khwaja Sahib (R.A) had nothing to offer him. It was the grape season and the
bunch of grapes were there on the trees. He plucked a bunch of sweat and juicy grapes,
offered him and then sat in front of him respectfully. The God- Loving Majzoob liked
his gesture and enjoyed few pieces of grapes with pleasure. The enlightened Majzoob
immediately recognized that the promising child is in search of truth. So he took
out a piece of oil cake, crushed it under his teeth and put into the mouth of Khwaja
Sahib(S.A). As he had a great respect and love for dervesh and fakirs , he swallowed
it . And Lo ! all of a sudden, the entire world lost its importance and there was
no barrier between him and God. With swallowing of piece of oil cake, he was in
spiritual world. When regained his consciousness , he found himself alone. SHEIKH
IBRAHIM QUNDOZI (R.A) had taken his way.
Though SHEIKH IBRAHIM QUNDOZI (R.A) left Khwaja Sahib alone, but it was unforgettable
to him what he witnessed in the spiritual world. He had a great desire to witness
the same repeatedly. He tried his level best to have patience and restraint over
himself but was unsuccessful . He could not control himself. He was now under great
influence of love and passion and when his love for truth crossed its limits, the
entire world became immaterial to him. Thus he sold his belongings, distributed
the cash and his possessions among the poor and needy and set off in search of truth
with a meager maintenance.
After having glimpse of divine light through SHEIKH IBRAHIM QUNDOZI (R.A), Hazrat
Khwaja (RA) was very restless and his thirst for acquisition of knowledge further
fanned the fire of love and passion so he left the land of Samarkand and separating
the name of Allah set off towards west in search of his MURSHID-E-KAMIL At last
he reached a town named Haroon which was away from Neshapur.
