A Brief of Sufi Rowshan Ali (RA) as Chief Minister of Mughal Empire

Around the time of Sultan Azhar ud-din Muhammad Azim Mirza, Azim us-Shan Bahadur (December 15, 1664 - March 18, 1712) was the third son of Mughal emperor Bahadur Shah I, by his second wife, Maharajkumari Amrita Bai Sahiba. He was the grandson of Emperor Aurungzeb. The chief Minister of Emperor Azim-us-shan once had a dream for the cure of his disease known as “Leprosy”, please note that at the of Azim-us-Shan there were no cure for such a disease. The Chief Minister Rowshan Ali’s (RA) dream was that, “He must meet with the Great Sufi Saint Hazrat Syed Mohammed Dayem (RA) a direct descendant of Prophet Mohammad (SM) in the Jungle of Dhaka”. Accordingly, the Prime Minister had resigned and started his road to Journey towards the jungle of Dhaka, but keeping his identity of being a Prime Minister secret to the Sufi Saint Shah Syed Mohammed (RA), founder of Dayera Sharif. After meeting the great Sufi, he did not ask any questions but he was given the special duty to clean and worship as well as cook of the kitchen for the visitors of Sufi Syed Mohammed Dayem (RA), he had continued his duty which he thought of having a very simple job, but he can live with very much peace in mind and also he was cured from mysterious disease at the time by the 12 years of service in Spirituality. Finally, one day Sufi Syed Mohammed Dayem (RA), had designated him as his Chief Khalifa of Dayera Sharif also presented Sufi Mohammed Dayem’s (RA) noble daughter to Sufi Rowshan Ali (RA).

At that time, Sufi Rowshan Ali (RA) communicated with the Mughal Emperor and convinced the Azim-us-Shan to established the Mosque and Khanqa Sharif to teach the spirituality and Sufism. Accordingly, the Emperor Azim-us-Shan had donated a One Square Mile in the Jungle Area of Dhaka for Dayera Sharif, which later known as Azimpur Area in the geographical city map of Dhaka. But unfortunately on current days that given land is completely sold out by the current so-called Motowalli of Boro Dayera Sharif and Marrige registrar of Manik Gonj, who is also a collaborator of Bangladeshi Liberation Movement in 1971, he was accused of the murdering several Dhaka University senior intellectuals. The part of the Chotto Dayera Sharif of Azimpur Dhaka Bangladesh is currently getting destroyed and occupied by a so-called “syeda” Saleha Khatun as well as abandoned wife of Hazrat Sufi DayemUllah (RA) along with her brothers Mir Haji Ofa-ul-Khondokar, Mir Owali-ul-Hoque Khondokar and Shujon Khondokar as well as Step brother of Syed Dayemullah (RA), Syed Basharut Ullah, including daughter of Sufi DayemUllah (RA) Rokeya Begum as well as her uncle Syed Nur Ullah.

His Eminency Dr. Hazrat M N Alam the seventh Khalif and Custodian of Chotto Dayera Shairf had rebuilt and reconstructed the historic Azimpur’s Chotta Dayera Sharif Mosque and inaugurated by Justice Abdus Sattar, former President of Bangladesh, Justice Abu Syed Chowdhury, 1st President of Bangladesh along with the Chief Imam and Chief Justice of Holy Makkah-tul-Makkarrama. More detailed information are listed separate part of the book.

Azimpur is an old neighbourhood in the old part of Dhaka, capital of Bangladesh. The region is named after Shahzada Azam, son of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. Other accounts attribute the name to Azim-us-Shaan, the Nayeb-e-Nazim of Dhaka during the early 1700s.

Hazrat Shah Sufi Rowshan Ali (RA) The First Sajjada Nashin (Spiritual Guide) of Chotto Dayera Sharif

Hazrat Shah Sufi Rowshan Ali (RA) was the Prime Minister to the Mughal Emperor of Delhi. He was a very pious man. As he was suffering from leprosy he left no stone unturned to get a physician or spiritual healer, who could cure his disease but in vain. Finding no other way he submitted Almighty Allah and humbly concentrated in prayer and to his utter surprise he dreamed of a Great Saint living in the deepest Jungle in the District of Dhaka near the Redport of Mughal Heritage, on that very night. And he wished, if he could go there, his skin disease would be cured and, he would achieve vast spiritual knowledge from him. After this he tendered his resignation from the service of the Mughal Emperor Azim-Ush-Shaan Grandson of Powerful Mughal Emperor Aurongojeb, and left Delhi for Dhaka in very simple way hiding his original identity as Chief Minister of Mughal Empire, He reached there without any delay and on arriving there, appeared before Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Mohammed Dayem (RA) founder of Dayera Sharif and devoted himself to his service. In order to please his Spiritual Teacher (Saint) during Tahajjat Prayer (the night time prayer from 12 to night early morning), he use to clean, deodorize with fresh fragrance and illuminate the bathroom for which the great Sufi was very pleased to see his devotion.

The former prime Minister of Mughal Emperor stayed there for about 12 years and rendered services to his spiritual guide. Due to his devotion and achievement of vast spiritual knowledge in Sufism, the great saint Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Mohammed Dayem (RA) was very much pleased and satisfied with him and having found fitness and the ability of teaching the people on Sufism, he awarded the Khilafat and blessed him with all spiritual power also thereafter got his only daughter married to him. After the performance of the marriage ceremony according to Shariat, Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Mohammed Dayem (RA) laid down the foundation of another Dayera Sharif now Known and called as “Historic Chotto Dayera Sharif” on the Western Side of Dayera Sharif or in other words the place where the present Chotto Dayera Sharif is now situated and further directed his son-in-law and Khalifa Hazrat Shah Sufi Rowshan Ali (RA) to reside there with his family and to teach his people. The Great Saint further directed him to construct and build a new Mosque on the South West of the said Dayera Sharif that is the place where the present Mosque is situated. From that time Hazrat Shah Sufi Rowshan Ali (RA) was recognized and called as “Chotto Huzur” in presence of founder of Dayera Sharif and the Dayera Sharif where he sat and taught the students is called and known as “Chotto Dayera Sharif”.

On the direction of the great saint, Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Mohammed Dayem (RA) he constructed the Mosque on the South West of Dayera Sharif in the year 1224 hizri and in the foundation stone of the said Mosque the following Persian poem was inscribed there, which also proves the above fact. The said poem reads as follows:

“Abduho Rowshan Ali Zar-O-Nezar

Yaft-Az Dayem O Ahmed Ekhtedar

Shakht Ein Masjid-E-Jannat Nagar

Dar Hazar-O-Do-Sad-O-Beist-O-Chahar”

 

The gist of the poem is that, “Rowshan Ali got the power and authority from the Great Saint Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Mohammed Dayem (RA) and also from the Holy Prophet and this presiding Mosque was built in the year 1224 Hijri.

The abovementioned poem written by the Mughal Emperor Azim-Ush-Shan’s prime minister and chief Khalifa of Hazrat Sufi Syed Dayem (RA), founder of Azimpur Dayera Sharif build the Chotto Dayera Shairf and he wrote the above poem encrypted in a rare black stone, which is still existent in the Chotto Dayera Sharif Historic Dayemia Shahi Jam-E-Mosque 42/2 Azimpur Chotto Dayera Sharif. When His Eminency Dr. Alam reconstructed the Mosque he placed the black stone in the main door of the upper level of Shahi-E-Jam Mosque (first floors upper level).

It will not be out of place to mention here that the said Mosque had been enlarged and reconstructed by Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed DayemUllah (RA) in the Year 1397 Hijri. When the Great Saint Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Mohammed (RA) left this world in the year 1214 Hijri at that time his two sons named as Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed AhmedUllah and Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed LaqiutUllah (RA) and at the time of Great Sufi’s departure from Earth to Heaven, they were minors. As they were minors, Hazrat Shah Sufi Rowshan Ali (RA) was appointed guardian of them by the Great Sufi Saint. So, He use look after their affairs including their teachings in all subjects. At the same time Sufi Rowshan Ali (RA) managed both the Dayera Sharifs, including teaching other students in Sufism. He left for eternal Peace in the year 1224 (Hijri) without any health implications. Sufi Rowshan Ali (RA) also never had any children, he was buried in the Boro Dayera Sharif, in the same compound of Founder of Dayera Sharif holding# 44, Azimpur Road, Dhaka-1205, Bangladesh.

Thereafter, Shah Sufi Ahmedullah (RA) had to look after both the Spiritual Center, Boro Dayera Sharif and Chotto Dayera Sharif. In the meantime he taught and trained his younger brother Shah Sufi Laqiutullah (RA) who was deputed for spiritual duties in Boro Dayera sharif. Later, also trained and deputed his eldest Son Shah Sufi Syed Waziullah (RA) to ascend the spiritual seat of Chotto Dayera Sharif as per instructions of the founder of Dayera Sharif. After blessing his younger brother and son, Shah Sufi LaqiutUllah (RA) & Shah Sufi Waziullah (RA) to their responsibilities, Hazrat Shah Sufi Ahmedullah (RA) left for eternal peace at very early age, he was buried in the dome of Boro Dayera Sharif next to his Father and Sister-in-law.

A Brief of Great Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed NurUllah (RA)

Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Nurullah (RA) acquired vast religious and spiritual knowledge and became the best Religious & Islamic Scholar and a great saint of his time. As he read the Holy Quran and researched hadis in Delhi, India in the time of Mughal Emperor Azim-ush-Shan grandson of Great Emperor Aurongojeb. So he had earned the glory of being the best religious scholar of his time. Further after achieving vast knowledge, he returned home and succeeding to the spiritual throne of Chotto Dayera Sharif. All his properties were made Waqf property with the Government of Bangladesh EC# 10355 for the development of Historic Chotto Dayera Sharif Dayemiya Shah-E-Jam-E Mosque, and maintenance and he became the first Mutuwalli as founder of it. There after to perform Hajj, he left Dhaka and on the village Chandar, in the district of Manikganj by his Spiritual power he converted a powerful Hindu Zamidar of that area into Islam. People irrespective of caste and creed used to come to learn and acquire knowledge of Islam and Sufism. While he was preaching Islam died a premature death in the village Chandar. His Shrine is situated there. To pay a rich tribute to his memory, in commeration of Sufi NurUllah (RA) His Eminency Dr. Hazrat M N Alam Chief Khadem of  Chotto Dayera Sharif has founded and established a Madrasha and Sufi NurUllah Orphanage there in his name called “Nuria Hafezia Madrasha and Sufi Nurullah Orphanage” in the year 1977. After his death his son Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Azmatullah (RA) succeeded him and ascended the Spiritual throne of Chotto Dayea Sharif. He was buried in Chandor Gor para, Post office village District Manikgong.

The Great Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Azmatullah (RA)

Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Azmatullah (RA) was  a great saint of his time, who succeeded to the spiritual throne of Chotto Dayera Sharif. After the death of his father, he also became the Mutuwalli of the Waqf Estate created by his aforesaid father, which was known as “Nurullah Waqf Estate”. He visited many places of Chittagong, Comilla and Noakhali districts and preached Islam there. Many of his disciples are still alive in Bangladesh. His son Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) predeceased him. As such he had to train and teach his grandson Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Dayemullah (RA) and in fact taught him Sufism and also acquainted him with the religious teachings. He, further, was nominated as Mutuwalli as well as the successor of the Spiritual throne of Chotto Dayera Sharif. Sufi Syed Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) breathed his last on Friday the 25th of Shaban 1362 Hijri at the age of 110 years (Inna-lillahe-Wa-inna-Ilahi-razi  woon).

Even he was a Great Sufi Saint, but in his lifetime, he could not do anything for the development of Historic Chotto Dayera Sharif’s Dayemiya Shahi Jam E Mosque, he also couldn’t establish a single Islamic Education center in his life time. But he did establish some Khanqas in Ibrahim Pur, Nabi Nagar, B-Baria. His Eminency Dr. Hazrat Shah Sufi M N Alam in 1977 had established a Dayemi Complex Project at Ibrahim Pur Sufiyabad in commemoration of Sufi Azmatullah (RA) to establish one the biggest Orphang in Bangladesh also known as Sufi Azmatullah Orphange and Sufi Azmatullah Senior Madrasah by spending billions of Taka in the time of Sufi Dayemullah (RA).

His shrine is situated near the Mosque of Chotto Dayera Sharif. Before his eternal rest he told that his aforesaid grandson is a saint by Birth (Madarzat Wali). During his life time and after his death many miraculous stories pertaining to him spread here and there. He had extraordinary spiritual power.

Some Remarkable Gloriuos Events of Sufi Azmatullah (RA)

When the entire universe is infested with bloody war, arsen, plunder, oppression, tyranny, the devotees and saints relying on this scientific teaching of the Holy Quran, look forward towards the almighty Allah for his mercy and guidance while the entire world has turned to be furnace of hatred, and divine brilliance and bright heavenly light, focusing the straight heavenly path as against the infinite darkness whence people can trade for the wealth of the blessings of Almighty Allah.

Surah “Rum” being the harbinger of the historic even of the Holy Quran can be taken as the foreteller of Premonitions. The Qurraish Dynasty, the infidel and non-believers for their momentary victory over the Muslims, began to oppress the Muslims apparently week, with various ridicules, insults and mental tortures. At that time the omniscient and all knowing indicates the great victory of the Romans in Europe and the Fall of Roman Civilization.

1.                  Alif, Lum, Meem

2.                  The Romans have been defeated in the nearer land and they, after their defeat will be victorious.

3.                  Within ten years – Allah is the command in the former case and in the latter – and in that day believers will rejoice In Allah’s help to victory. He helped to victory whom he will, He is the mighty and the merciful.

This prediction, when turned into reality after removing all doubts and hesitation with all coverage in the pages of history, then the people at large including elites of the area were delighted beyond expectation. The Holy Quran was once more accepted as embodiment of God’s Order and ordains.

In the absence of any measuring rode for the assessment of the respected mankind, the best of Allah’s creation the holy Quran bears the final and highest remark about mankind. It has been clearly defined that “Man is the representative of Allah on Earth”. So in the light of the above Quranic observation Men in general being endowed with the above quality as representative of Allah is placed at stage where modesty becomes paraphernalia of Allah are bestowed on Earth. The mankind being blessed with the qualities of “Rabubiat” the saintly characters and noble souls are always engaged in the same their endeavor to attain the preserve the same.

So in this atomic age of science, when men have invented the space shuttles or rockets, which are travelling from one planet to the other culminating the cultural heritage of this material World, there is another spiritual world, which has been successfully conquered by the people who are engrossed in Metaphysics of Sufism, because men have been created with matter and soul, which emanates from Allah.

On twentieth Century, it can be safely described as the age of the highest intellectual supremacy and there is no denial to the above fact. So, when we find that many intellectual giants are siding with the disbelievers; then we are bound to believe that Allah has sealed their hearts, covered their eyes and otherwise why they will associate themselves with the learned vicious circles.

That is why when according to Mr. Malthus experiment we find that all matters are indestructible, simultaneously we also find in the Holy Quran the declaration of the immortality of the souls.

For the disbelievers the verse of Surah “Anam” is sufficient; which states, “And though we should send down Angels unto them and the dead should speak unto them and we should gather against them all things array, they would not believe unless Allah so willed, how be it most of them are ignorant”

As all matter are indestructible, so they are transformed from one from to another, according to the theory of Mr. Dalton regarding molecules; in the same way the immortal soul leaves this material world for the eternity according to Quran.

Thus it means that when the soul leaves for eternal voyage, still it acts according to the will of the Almighty Allah and remains alive.

We can correctly and accurately come to know from the great Holy Quran, that the soul simply passes through transitional staged and ultimately moves towards eternity.

Through meditation and worship those, who have been blessed with the infinite mercy of Allah, and have been able to appreciate the indestructibleness of the soul power, are actually in possession of the unseen spiritual wealth and having no limitations.

The Great Sheikh of Baghdad Hazrat Abdul Jilani (RA), Hazrat Khawja Moinuddin Chisti (RA) of Ajmir, Hazrat Nizamuddin Awlia (RA) of Delhi, Hazrat Qutubuddin Bakhtiar Kaki (RA) of India, Hazrat Bakhtiar Mahi Sawar (RA) of Baghdad, Hazrat Shah Amanat Ullah (RA) of Chittagong, Hazrat Shah Jalal (RA) of Shylet, Hazrat Shah Ali (RA), Hazrat Sharfuddin yehaia Muneri Chisti (RA) along with Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Mohammed Dayem (RA) the founder of Azimpur Dayera sharif, all of them were endowed with all Wealth of Spiritualism. The fact that from the very infancy or childhood these Great Saints remained all through their lives devoted to Almighty Allah and his apostles and scriptures and followed the straight path and always restrained themselves from being led ashtray.

Hazrat Azmatullah (RA) was a great saint of his time with a great personality. He left behind a unique way of life for spiritual guidance of the disciples in the green valley of Bangladesh with all respective nature.

Sufi Azmatullah (RA) led a life, which is full of events and lively incidents. In the whole Bangladesh, specially Comilla and Chittagong, where he spent most of his life, devoted himself for spreading education in the darkness corners of Bangladesh. He has left behind innumerable devotees and followers, who have been  able to show strict adherence to his teachings.

Hazrat Sufi Syed Mohammad Dayem (RA) was also a great Sufi and hermit of his time and I have decided not only to put into black and white the life history of the great saint and his descendents, rather to draw the analogy through proper study of the way of life shaped as per Holy Quran and Teachings of Mohammad (SM) and shown to disciples for their peaceful traffic and voyage in the straight divinely direction for success herein and hereafter; and their study of the lives of these saints and Spiritual guides and Awlias is very much important for finding what made them so great and eminment in life and how they differed from the commoners.

The Holy shrine of Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Azmatullah (RA) the noble son of Hazrat Shah Sufi NurUllah (RA) is situated in the yard of the Waqf Estate of Sufi Nurullah (RA).

Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Dayemullah (RA) is the grand son of Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Azmatullah (RA) and also succeeded him to take over the responsibility of Chotto Dayera Sharif of Dhaka, Bangladesh. He is not only their heir Sufi of Azmatullah (RA) but he also inherited his vast spiritual knowledge. The whole life of Sufi Dayemullah (RA) was intricately intermingled with the life and ideals of his grandfather. Sufi Dayemullah (RA) owes his very existence through the continued blessings of his grandfather, Sufi Azmatullah (RA), whom followed the great Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (SM) to get blessings and favor from Allah directly.

 We find a clue from verse number 72 of Surah Tauba, “Allah had promised to the believers man and women, gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide – blessed dwellings in gardens of eden. And-greater Far! Acceptance from Allah”, this is the supreme triumph.

The immortality of the holy soul Hazrat Shah Azmatullah (RA) is more due to his austerity, worships and devotion to the Almighty Allah through out of his life he engaged himself fully in the service of Allah.

Through the sacred tough of Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Azmatullah (RA) the Chotto Dayera Sharif has turned into canopy where people still derive heavenly peace and prosperity and nobody is deprived of the mercy of Allah around his shrine, where Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Dayemulllah (RA) the noble and successful heir and descendant of Hazrat Azmatullah (RA) had rendered his religious and spiritual and humanitarian service to the mankind.

Hazrat Sufi Azmatullah (RA) las days bear eloquent testimony of his successful saintly life, Sufi Azmatullah (RA) was ver ill at that time. His last moments were being courted. His kinsmen and near relatives were very anxious about him. At such a critical time Sufi Dayemullah (RA) was thinking within himself that most of the pious men do get hints before hand about their last departure from this mortal earth. Right at that moment Shah Sufi Azmatullah (RA) was bit engrossed in his thoughts and he ordered his grandson Sufi Dayemullah (RA) to bring a calendar. When Sufi Azmatullah (RA) got the calendar in his hand he at once made a prediction that, “since 25th of Shaban is Friday and a holy day; so, I would like to say my good bye from this mortal earth on that day”.

Although he was sage and could see things before hand but many of his relatives and close followers became bit hesitant to believe in the statement of fixed date of his eternal rest, and some even went so far as to begin to ridicule his premonition about his own death being on the 25th of Shaban, which appeared to be Friday.

As such during this time Sufi Azmatullah (RA) called his favourite and devoted grandson Sufi Dayemullah (RA) and ask about the necessary arrangement and procurement of the articles of his burial. Sufi Dayemullah humoursly went out and brought a bottle of Rose water and a phial of Rose scent. As soon as he reached home his grandfather enquired him about the procurement of things ordered for and on hearing his question, Sufi Dayemullah (RA) at once handed over the bottle of Rose water and phial of Rose scent. On being enquired about the cloth for “kafan” or burial dress Sufi Dayemullah in same smilingly told that he has made the necessary arrangement of “kafan” with the tailor Manik by handling over to him a first class piece of cloth.

Being enquired about the burial place of his mortal body, Sufi Azmatullah (RA) expressed his desire to be buried by the side of small Mosque.

Although he was enquired beforehand wheather he likes to be buried in the Boro Dayera Sharif but he replied “it will not meet with Allah’s Approval”. Next he was asked if he would like to be buried by the side of Shrine of Hazrat Shah Maree (RA), but again he replied in the negative manner as before. At last enquiry about his burial place in the family grave yard to be buried by the side of his brother but he again indicated his approval to be buried by the southern side of the small mosque.

During this course of conversation with his family member grandmother said “the land by the side of small mosque has already been sold by you to Mr. Israil only at consideration of Money of Tk-96 only. It is doubtful if the Israil would consider to give back the land”. At this time Sufi Dayemullah (RA) replied, that if necessary as the only owner of Shah Sufi Nurullah Waqf estate he would hand over the ownership of the entire estate in exchange of the small piece of the land required for the great Sufi Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Azmatullah (RA). The land owner was a local men, may be still alive.

By the way it should mentioned here that, the land by the small mosque was then being used at the approach road to their house.

The noble grandson Sufi Dayemullah (RA) then took a bold attitude and said “if Mr. Israil do not accept his proposal then he ready to be the slave of Mr. Israil but still he will fulfill the last desire of his grandfather.”

On hearing these words his wife remarked that “as his grandfather, so also is his grandson”.

Finally, Sufi Azmatullah (RA) said, “Can you say why I like to be buried by the side of small Mosque?”

On hearing this question the aunt of Dayemullah said, “he likes to be buried besides the road side and that always people would pass by that common road and they would perform “Jiarat”, when they happen to pass by the road.”But Sufi Azmatullah (RA) replied in negative. Then Sufi Dayemullah’s Father’s sister said, “Since the grave will be near to Mosque, he would always be able to hear Quran recitation; therefore he likes to be buried by the mosque,”; Again Sufi Azmatullah (RA) disapproved her idea. Then Sufi Dayemullah’s grand mother said, “perhaps you like to be buried in the Boro Dayera Sharif as you will get good companions there. But as it is not meeting with Allah’s approval so remaining besides the small mosque, you will enjoy the air of Boro Dayera Sharif. He again moved his head with disapproved the said idea as well. Now his wife became very annoyed with reply.

Finally, he asked his own grandson the same question to reply. In reply, Sufi Dayemullah (RA) stated, “Everything has been said if there be anything secret about this choice, it is only known to you.”

Then he requested everybody to think and find out the cause. At this time the sister of Sufi Dayemullah’s father also got annoyed and left the place. At that time Sufi Dayemullah remarked that, “Parhaps there is a some secret about this, He is not disclosing the secret before all, During the solitary time with you he will perhaps tell you.”

In the meantime Sufi Dayemullah had been to the bathroom. As he was standing infront of the Bathroom for water, his Grandfather Sufi Azmatullah (RA) said to his wife, “you all become crazy to finalize when anything is spoken, when you all are mad, now hear the secret.”

On hearing this Sufi Dayemullah (RA) was alert and began to wait surreptitiously by the door of the bathroom.

Then Sufi Azmatullah (RA) was saying about the family burial ground,” where my father (Dayemullah) has not ever trodden, will be dark in the course of time. But this place land with small mosque was the main center of devotion of my forefathers and a LangerKhana was also there. Through the activities of my father (Dayemullah) this will turn such a sacred place that it will break all past records and men from different place of the world would come and meet here. This place will shine one day for its holy and noble functions and will attain international name and attention.”

Here I narrate an incident that took place only about 15 days ahead of his departure from this World. Many used to ridicule about the prediction of Sufi Azmatullah (RA) pointing his fixed date. Then he reminded all present there about the story of the tiger and cow, which heard of Aysops fables. The coy-boy very often used to call the villagers falsely alleging that a tiger has come. In this way, the villagers disbelieved the cowboy. Actually one day when the tiger did came, the cowboy called in vain the villagers but thinking it to be false, none come on that last date. The same case has happened regarding the prediction of my last breath to say good bye from this material world.

Humorously, I made previous prediction about my death with the intention that you will take good care during my last days. But this time you don’t disbelieve my statement, because now I find that the whole nature around me is proceeding towards me to engulf me.

During this time one day he called his nearest grandson Sufi Dayemullah and requested him to write a few lines in the structure of a poem in Persian language and ready out to his grandfather in following form, and now placed in his last bed.

“Ee Mazare Sufi Azmatullah

Binne Sufi Nurullah Zannat Nagar”

“Binni Sufi Ahmedullah Binne Sufi

Syed Dayem Ektedar”

“Sijda Sado-Cheste Do Roze Juma

Kon Sumar”

“Bishte Panjam Bahame Shaban

Dayem Khak Sar”

 

English Meaning:

“This is the grave of Sufi Azmatullah,

Son of Sufi NurUllah is Nagar Heaven,

Who is son of Sufi Ahmed Ullah,

Sufi Syed Dayem (RA) his relation.

1342 hijri”

 

The above Farsi poem was composed in marble stone placed in his Holy Dome at Top and north side of the Holy Mazar at Chotto Dayera Sharif by His Eminency Dr. Hazrat Shah Sufi M N Alam in the time Sufi Dayemullah (RA) 1978.

 

Hearing these lines Sufi Azmatullah (RA) was very much pleased. Two or three days after this Sufi Dayemullah’s devotees and disciples like Osman Ali Chowdhury, Gyasuddin and Abdur Rahman came to Dhaka to take him to Comilla. Sufi Dayemullah was already ready to start for Comilla. But his grandfather Sufi Azmatullah (RA) raised a strong obstacle and protest aginst this journey.

Being much angry for his creation of obstacle by his grandfather, Sufi Dayemullah left his bags and luggages in its previous place.

Sufi Azmatullah (RA) on seeing Dayemullah’s angry remarked that, “the annoyance of Dayemullah (my father) is blessing for me.” This creation of obstacle to Sufi Dayemullah, the dearest grandson of Sufi Azmatullah (RA) clearly indicates that he (Sufi Azmatullah RA) had got the notice of his death beforehand and so he earnestly, desired to spend his last days with his dearest grandson.

Sufi Azmatullah (RA) was counting his last days. He was having loose motion and called one of the maid servant, offered a few chips to get the cloths washed and cleaned after his death on ensuing Friday.

Sufi Dayemullah (RA) was sitting with Sufi Azmatullah (RA) in a melancholy mood because his grandfather has ordered him to stop the gold business. Which Sufi Dayemullah obeyed his grandfather’s order and stopped all dealing of gold business; but the enquired as to how he would manage his home affairs.

His grandfather replied with confidence, “Dayem the Emperor ship of this world and afterwards will remain under your feet. You simply stick to my teachings and follow the religious rites taught by me. If you fail to do so you will be held responsible for the same on the day of judgment.”

Those, who have sacrificed their lives for the attainment of spiritual life and have been able to mingle himself with the supreme spirit and have controlled their passions, will be able to know the unknown future. This good news have been set in the Holy Quran.

So therefore, Hazat Shah Sufi Syed Azmatullah (RA) took his last breath, according to his prediction, of the scheduled time and his soul left for the eternal voyage, leaving behind him his kinsmen and relatives to mourn his death.

His grave was prepared in his pre-declaration place by the side of Mosque and there he is taking rest from the interim period till the day of resurrection.

Hazrat Shah Sufi Dayemullah (RA) himself force bearer of the indications of his successful life.

Those, who are the lovers of Allah, are not dead but living and also get their rations by Allah. This good news ensured the believer in the Holy Quran. It is also mentioned in verse# 111 of Surah “Ann Am” wherein is stated that “if I (Allah) do send down angels before them, let the dead speak before them and disclose all secrets before them, still the disbelievers without the desire of Allah, would not believe in these path, as they are illiterate and fools”.

Therefore before going to describe the events, which took place after the death of the grandfather of Sufi Dayemullah, it will be necessary for us to remember the above Verse of Holy Quran.

Some events that took place after the death of Sufi Azmatullah (RA), One Day Sufi Dayemullah was suffering from acute pain of gastric ulcer and was rolling about the side of the Shrine of his grandfather. All of a sudden, miraculously the living soul Shah Sufi Syed Azmatullah (RA) appeared before Sufi Dayemullah after unveiling the cover of the grave with the blessings from merciful Allah. He gave instruction in the preparation of medicine for Gastric ulcer after due practice of a Doa from Quran according to specified mode of practice.

Though he recovered from malady but he was not getting mental peace. Financial stringency was disturbing his mental equilibrium and was feeling encumbered. Although he is the founder of the Madrasha but because it needed money it had already become very difficult to run the institutions properly and as such being agitated he came near the Mazar Sharif of his grandfather and began crying out loud while clapping the grave.

At that time suddenly he saw his grandfather before him, and told him “go and canvass for the sale of medicines and see how much you can earn.”

In this way the medicine prepared according to the direction of his grandfather, which already found place in the market. A man named Awlad Hossein, nephew of the former Minister Mr. Mafizuddin Ahmed, was staying in the Khanqah of Sufi Dayemullah. One day in the morning Sufi Dayemullah found that two people were scuffling in front of the main gate of the Khanqah. On approaching them he came to know that the father of Awlad Hossain with heavy hat and unbearable pain in the stomach, was going to commit suicide and his son was trying to persuade his father to give up the idea and also resisting him in the above manner.

At once Sufi Dayemullah brought out a phial of medicine carefully prepared and stored according to the direction of Hazrat Azmatullah (RA). One dose of medicine was administered to Mir Summandar Ali father of Awlad Hossain cousin brother of Education Minister of Pakistan from Davidar Police Station, Comilla and instantly some relief was noticed. After getting treatment Summandar Ali took a phial of said medicine for gastric pain and went home in the village of Shalgarah, district of Comilla. After use of the said medicine for few days he was fully cured without any surgical operation. This news of relief immediately spread far and wide throughout the villages.

As a result the villagers from far off places began to come to Summandar Ali for the above medicine, which he got from Dhaka from Sufi Dayemullah (RA), and then supplied the same to the villagers at reasonable costs. In this way all varieties of medicine were getting prepared and also found a wide market in the course of few days.

One day Summandar Ali came to Sufi Dayemullah and deeply thinking over the matter of Sufi Dayemullah replied, that since he doesn’t have a license, how he can certify others. On this consideration he got himself admitted in Hakim Habibur Rahman College and got his Diploma from the college in due course of time.

Because of the grace of the spiritual power in the preparation of the medicines, there were unexpected results after using the medicines. Now comes the turn of advertisement in the mind of Sufi Dayemullah (RA) and he was bit worried.

At this moment, son-in-law of Sufi Dayemullah His Eminency Dr. Hazrat M N Alam came to his rescue and said “I take the responsibility to advertising the medicines all over the world within a short time.”

Next day Eminency handed over a copy of the widely circulated newspaper “Ittefaq” in the hands of Sufi Dayemullah containing the advertisement of the medicine. On seeing the advertisement in the newspaper he felt relieved to a great extent. Within a short time a telephone call was received from Secretary of Education Minister abou the availability of the medicines for one of the relation of Minister, who was seriously ill and had been admitted in a hospital. Next a car touched the yard of the Dawakhana for collection of some medicines, which were immediate supplied and the patient was cured in due course of time.

Being satisfied with the use of the medicine some time afterward the Minister informed over the telephone for handling over a check of Taka 1000/-(Taka one Thousand) enquired about the name of the recipient of the check.

In reply Sufi Dayemullah informed that it is to be paid in the name of secretary of the Madrsah.

In this way the name of Dayemi Dawakhana began to be known to the public in general.

With profound modesty and respect it may be mentioned here that the Dayemi Dawakhana is not only pharmacy but also a heavenly creation, which Sufi Azmatullah (RA) has blessed immensely with no reservation.

So, Sufi Dayemullah (RA) the devoted disciple of Hazrat Shah Sufi Azmatullah (RA) is not only a strict follower but also a real recipient of his blessings and wealth of knowledge.

Now we come to the topic of the establishment of the Madrasah, which was awaiting recognitions from government of Bangladesh. Sufi Dayemullah (RA) was not going to extend his hands for help from the general public. But the Madrasah buildings needs to be constructed according to modern style immediately ; so Sufi Dayemullah (RA) prayed to the Almighty Allah for the success of his institutions, which in no time came down, as if form heaven. Because within a short time the news of government recognition with a sanction of Tk. 80,000/- was conveyed to His Eminency Dr. Hazrat Shah Sufi M N Alam. This news of recognition of the Madrasah by the government was hailed by all and all the clouds of obstacles in the way of establishment of Madrasah were removed, as if by spell or blast of hurricane.

The construction work of the Madrasah was started in full sweing but after coming to up to linter level, the constructions work again stopped for want of money. He personally went to inspect the Madrasah and found that the Secretary of the Madrasah had misused some Money. So Sufi Dayemullah (RA) had suspended the secretary temporarily being dissatisfied with his work.

Now hence forth everyday Tk. 400/00 per day began to be sent to the Madrasah by Sufi Dayemullah through Money order; After some time it was found that Tk. 11,000/00 only had been spent over money order commission exclusively. Thereafter money was being sent through Bank Now the Madrasah has turned into storied building with modern facilities with a good library and arrangement for vocational training. Here teaching aims at creating self-reliant true Muslims in mind and behavior. Later on the Madrasah reeived a lum sump grant of Tk. 4.50 Laks (Four and half Laks) only by the grace of Almighty Allah.

Those, who believe in the blessings of Allah are rewarded with honest and respectful maintenance costs in this world (Surah Saba, Verse 4)

Those, who have been blessed with the spirit of true Islamic education, are ever powerful and being directed by the unfore seen hands of Allah (Surah Saba Verse-6)

The Chotto Dayera Sharif is sanctified by the holy touch of Sufi Azmatullah (RA) having eternal sleep by the side of the Mosque, where innumerable helpless and persons puzzled in worldly affairs, find their abode as a holy shrine where there is the Mazar Sharif and a mosque. Being blessed by his grandfather the untiring worker Sufi Dayemullah (RA) had managed more 100 Madrasahs, several Orphanages through out Bangladesh. These institutions are also being used as the centers of propagating Islamic Ideologies and principles. All these Institutions are being run and controlled by the Dayemi Complex, under the direct Supervision of Sufi Dayemullah (RA), who also gave financial aid to these projects. The Dayemi Complex is fully engaged in developing all the projects under its direct management with an ever vigilant eye to avoid all corrupt practices. The ideal of Hazrat Shah Sufi Dayemullah (RA) had very good meaning towards many glorious achievements. At present, the entire world is engrossed in strifes and awe-engulfing struggles with one  another, at that moment this great saint with his untiring zeal for work and endowed with profound modesty and decorum is ever trying his utmost to remove the darkness of ignorance about Islamic ideologies and principles even from entire Muslim world and in this path he had sacrificed his whole life and earnings for creation of a better and finer world of peace and tranquility as sacred vow and with the hardest missionary zeal.

His behavior with mankind in general and his mode of communication with his disciple and followers was unique in its ways and means. For his unique personality infested with extreme modesty, he will always be remembered by the people in general of the world, which is beset with various kinds of clashes between the rich and the poor or the haves and have-nots. He always shined as a brilliant guiding star in the Spiritual firmament of the world of his glorious and honest attempts for establishment for a separate spiritual atmosphere, where peace and profound tranquility may reign supreme and the people in general, who are crazy and mad with worldly affairs, may find a breathing space of heavenly peace far from the madding crowd.

Hazrat Shah Sufi Dayemullah (RA) gives mirror vivid and lucid picture personality and achievements, who is nothing short of the earthly representative of the great Hazrat Shah Sufi Azmatullah (RA) the Holy Saint of his time.

Short Life History of Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) and His Spiritual Attainments

Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) the honest and noble soul endowed with and possessed in him the super natural qualities attached with his very appearance in the form of super natural joy and cheer fullness exposing the inherent qualities and affinities to Almighty Allah: and it is probably more due to the fact that his head, heart and soul was devoted for refinement of his own soul and for sincere service to the humanity. Although his span of his life was short still it is full of instances of uncommon power and incidents, which shine like a mid day sun in the spiritual firmament. For these reasons he is recognized as a great man with all saintly qualities who reached the pinnacles of pride and glory of a full fledged devotee. Shah Sufi Abu Musa Syed Kalimullah (RA) was the noble son of Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Azmatullah (RA) and was born in 1346 Hizri.

It is really difficult for common men to put into black and white the acts and omission and epoch making events of the great saint with intend to record with the streams of history as legacy for future generation. This devotee, though allotted a short span of life had to transcend the limits of this material world for heavenly sphere of eternal peace at the age of forty years only.

Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) although died a premature death during the life time of great sufi his father but still his life is glorified with the execution of many noble deeds, which may be treated as period of golden age with all possible touch of complete sublimity and holiness and thus turned himself into on blessed personality.

The saint from his boyhood was very moderate and sober in so far as he did not waste much of his time and restrained form sleeping, talking and eating.

He possessed a noble character and had a controlled his greed completely with no attachment for the material prosperity. Even he had completely boycotted delicious dishes. One day his father Sufi Azmatullah (RA) arranged “Polao” (Rich food) with (Beef) Bowl for feeding  Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) and Sufi Dayemullah (RA) sat together for a dinner. But infront of his father without saying anything Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) began to take only the rice after keeping aside the Beef curry of Bowl. On seeing this his father Sufi Azmatullah (RA) became very angry on Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA). It is very difficult to gauge the depth of Sufism of Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) as laymen. We can only say Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) was one of the unique slave of Allah destined to be honored in the garden of heaven.

Since he preferred the straight path specified for the righteous persons who attain affinity of Allah by meditation, worship and strict adherence to the principle set forth in the Holy Quran. So for sake the path which is destined to lead a ashtray and the reward form the merciful Lord for them is peace and in this context the following verses of Surah “Yasin” may be presented for better understanding of the circumstances mentioned here in before.

There verses from the glorious Surah “Yasin””there warnest only him who follow the reminder and fear the beneficent in secret, to him bear findings of forgiveness and rich reword.

So, we it is who bring the deed to life. We record that which they sent before (them) and their foot prints. And all things we have kept in a clear register.

Being qualified through inherited gifts Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) last life is thus mingled with sorrow and pain.

The last Part of Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA)

Sufi Azmatullah (RA) was then residing in Comilla and was trying to remove darkness of that area through spread of education in the area. At that time a man named Mohammad Ama was the disciple of Sufi Azmatullah (RA) with his so-called devotee Mohammad Ama of Nabinagar became the cause of jealousy of a merchant named Manzur Ali Bepari of adjacent village.

Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) had gone to village named Satmora. Here Manjur Ali Bepari invited Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) and he became his Murid (Disciple).

Hearing heard about the arrangement of “Shirni” (Rice Pudding) and “Neaz” Abu Musa enquired Manzur Ali Bepari about his father Sufi Azmatullah (RA) Manzur Ali Bepari gave a wrong impression that his father would also attend. Believing the statement of Manzur Ali Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) reached the house of Manzur Ali but he did not find his father there.

On the other side of Sufi Azmatullah (RA) was sitting in the house of Mohammad Ama amongst his so-called disciples. At that time the man of Manzur Ali reached there and informed him that their Huzur is calling Sufi Azmatullah (RA).

With astonishment Sufi Azmatullah (RA) questioned Manzur Ali about the Huzur and then became angry with this Son.

Seeing this condition Mohammad Ama requested him to be quiet and peaceful.

Thereafter, he had been to the house of Manzur Ali and expressed that two swords cannot be kept in one Sheath or cover.

In the meantime when Shirni was ready Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) informed his father and asked for his permission to distribute the same amongst the disciples. The Shirni in the name of Boro Pir Sahabeb Hazrat Gausal Azam Abdul Qadir Jilani (RA) was thus served and prior to its service a place there of was sent for the approval of Sufi Azmatullah (RA), who tasted the same with his Jupiter finger and ordered for distribution among the disciple and returned back to the house of Mohammad Ama. After this incident Sufi Azmatullah (RA) ordered his son Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) to go to Chittagong.

When Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) was ordered to go to Chittagong he understood the implication of such order directly came back to Dhaka and in order to say farewell to her aunt, the wife of Murshed Janab Obaidullah (RA). He took leave of her amount three times only to give impression that he is leaving for eternal peace but his Aunt could not understand why he sought permission for the third time and as such moved slowly with eyes full of tears and proceeded towards Chittagong.

At last he reached Amirabad in the district of Chittagong. On his arrival at Amirabad devotees and Muridans, one by one came to him and informed about their grievances. Then the omniscient Saint began to advise to disciples about the ways of alleviation of their sufferings. A person name Islmail Sawdagar came to him and informed him about “Hazari Goda” Which was used for irrigation purposes in that locality but the water of the Snakha river washes them away due to its rapid flow of water and thus caused huge damage to the standing crops. These “Hazari Godas” were used by the local people for checking the enrush of flood water and used it for fruitful purposes of growing crops.

The noble hearted saint Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) ordered Ismail Sawdagar to erect a dam having 12 cubics in breadth and 5 cubic in height. After the barrage was erected Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) walked over the dam and completed his Doa and prayer to the Almighty Allah for the maintenance of the barrage it so happened that afterwards for several years of the flood water could not over flow the barrage. But for unknown reasons Hazrat Sufi Azmatullah (RA) later on removed the dam according to his spiritual wishes.

 Sometime after when Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah’s (RA) time for eternal departure from this world came near at hand, he prepared himself for the eternal journey, beforehand, One fine morning when he was sitting with his disciples & devotees Maulana Niazur Rahman came and offered his daughter for marriage with him. On hearing this request Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) said, “My father Huzure Kebla will come here on the 13th of Jilqud after Jumma prayer and will complete the marriage ceremony.” But also this declaration was actually the expected date of his bidding good bye form this mortal World.

In the meantime he also indicated and earmarked the place of construction of his house on the side of a tank before Maulana Niazur Rahman and others currently known as Amirabad Village Lohagara Police Station, Chittagong

By pointing with a stick on his hand Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) spotted the place and said “here my house for residence will be built”. Actually his sacred Mazar sharif is now lying in the same place on the bank of a tank, which was spotted by him with his stick.

But this was not understood by any of his followers and devotees. At this time Small pox broke out in the epidemic form throughout the village called Amirabad in the district of Chittagong. That mysterious disease at that time the small pox disease were unknown and there were no vaciines at that time. His devotees and disciples came and informed him about the outbreak of small pox in an epidemic form the area and requested him for taking measures for stoppage of this epidemic. On hearing the request of his disciples and followers Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) remarked “When you are unwilling to welcome guest of Allah in the form of Small Pox then I myself will welcome the guest sent by Allah on behalf of you all”.

The great Saint Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) in an instance as to how to save his innumerable followers and devotees from impending deaths by sacrificing his own life absorbing the miseries of small pox on his own life on absolutely humanitarian ground. This kind of noble sacrifice is rare indeed in the so called present civilized world, where everyone is busy to save himself as it would be on the day of final judgment. The persons who show strict adherence to the dictate of Allah is always honored with an uncommon power to fulfill their desire after their free will Musa (A) could meet the beneficent Allah and Nuh (A) and his follower, his house hold materials and other paraphernalia were saved from flood by Allah. And in fact Allah delegates some super natural power to his chosen viceroy in this universe, who by exercise of those power try to bring back sense and wisdom and make them conscious of the fact the Almighty Allah can do and undo everything and the path which lead ashtray should be for saken as the straight path destined to lead toward heavenly garden for eternal peace should be prudently chosen for his blessings and reward. Already few pimples of small appeared on his body and same spread over his entire body within few days and later on all his limbs were affected with putrefaction due to in demerable small poxes.

On Tuesday his father sufi Azmatullah (RA) reached amirabad from Comilla. But the great Saint Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) according to his prediction breathed his last on the 13th of Jilqud after Jumma prayer and this plunged all his dear and near ones and his innumerable followers and well wishers into an ocean of sorrow and agony of separation.

Now came the turn of construction of his last house. Three places were selected for his burial. But his father Sufi Azmatullah (RA) found that the place which was selected as the residence by Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) himself during his life time, falls within the Zamidari of Mr. Badiul Alam Chowdhury and so he expressed such desire before the Zamidar, who was pleased enough to make a Waqf of the said portion of land for his burial place. All those are due to the profound honesty and sub-limity of the great Shah Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA). Accordingly in the pre-earmarked place the demised body of the Holy Sain was buried.

We find in the Holy book that “those who have sacrificed themselves on the way to Allah, are not dead but on the contrary they are living near the Almighty Allah, even getting their rations and they are happy and contented with whatever have been bestowed on them omnipotent Allah, (Surah Al-Imran 4, V-17).

The above verse and noble sayings of the truth of Holy Quran had been proven to be correct and accurate from age to age and are ever being recorded that the soul never dies but it is only, transformed into another form which is known only to Allah, the all powerful and omnipresent and all pervading. Now like to mention here some stray incidents that took place after his departure to eternal peace and these will prove that the soul is imperishable, indestructible and ever-lasting. It has so been quoted in the Holy Quran that “Allah gives knowledge and power to whomsoever he likes and whomsoever, He selects”, these persons will alone have this company and will stay with him in the garden of peace.

And that is why nobody can probably move by the side of the Holy Mazar Shairf of the immortal soul of Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) in a manner which shows dis-respect to him and if anybody does violate this instruction, he is destined to meet an accident.

As proverb goes that some jealous and proud so-called Moulana follower of Ohabi, Selafi and Nazdi alem of Amirahbad spread the scandal that if Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) was a real saint then why he could not check the small pox on his own, which caused his death. But this vilification has later on been nullified by the presence of his immortal soul in the Mazar Sharif.

By the way there is another incident that took place in the Mazar Sharif of Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA). Maoulana Masudur Rahman was Mutuwalli of the Mazar sharif. Once Sufi Dayemullah (RA), son of Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) said with extreme modesty and honor that in order to test the sanctity of the soul of his father he had gone to the side of Mazar Sharif to bring his father’s body on Horseback. Immediately through an unseen power the horse jumped up and I fell down on the earth and got hurt. So, when you have come here being the heir of the great immortal saint, please be kind enough to bless me, so that I may be cured of my hurt. Afterwards having his blessings Moulana Masudur Rahman was cured. Even today innumerable peoples came here for Ziarat and they are being cured of diseases and various ailments.

Side by side I cannot but mention another spectacular incident here. On the western side of the above Mazar Sharif there is another Khanqah known as Goraingha Sharif. The Sajjada Nashin of that Khanqah is known as Hazrat Abul Majid (RA) a great sufi saint of that time, (The First Sufi Saint OF His Eminency Dr. M N Alam) and his fame and eloquences was known to everyone throughout of the Chittagong district. So, in order to be acquainted with him, the main writer of this book His Eminency Dr. Hazrat M N Alam started for the said Khanqah Sharif and on the 3rd week of March 1976 A.D. when he reached the Mazar Sharif of Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA), the driver of the Rickshaw requested him to get down from the rickshaw. On hearing this His Eminency Dr. Alam asked the rickshaw driver the reasons of this and came to know everything. But still he asked the driver to proceed on. At this time the driver refused to move any further and requested Eminency to hire another rickshaw. Then Eminency proceeded towards the Mazar Sharif and completed Fateha and Prayed “Oh Allah You have said those who have sacrificed their lived on the path of Allah, they are still living”.

Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) if you are still living then allow me to meet the person, who is the real torch bearer of your dynasty or descendant of a common ancestor, later Eminency proceeded from there he came to district Dhaka. Since he learned beforehand the details of Hazrat Shah Amanat Ullah (RA) and that the Sufi Amanat (RA) is situated at Lakshmibazar in Dhaka and so he made up his mind to visit and perform Ziarat of the said Mazar Sharif.

On reaching the Khanqah of Laksmibazar he met with Shah Sufi Ahmed Ullah (RA) who speaks little being a reserved type of religious devotee and as such he was charmed with his personality. This khanqah was very dirty but His Eminency Dr. Hazrat Alam along with another over weight person of the Khanqah cleaned the dirt around the Khanqah. Thereafter he kept on fasting for a day and saved few chips with which he purchased some fruits and offered to Sufi AhmedUllah (RA), who was pleased with him and asked him to go to Azimpur Dayera Sharif.

He walked down all the way up to Azimpur old grave yard and completed Ziarat of Some Mazar Sharif of Hazrat Dayem (RA) when he reached the Mosque of Chotto Dayera Sharif and also found that one Maolana was sleeping by keeping his head over a holy Quran Sharif. On seeing this he was annoyed and was about turn back.

But at the gate the son of the Imam Maolana Mostaque the Caretaker of Azimpur Old Grave yard, which belongs to Chotto Dayera Sharif of Sufi NurUllah Waqf Estate and other 4/5 peoples obstructed him and provided service. In the meanwhile, the melodious Azan of the prayer of Isha was heard; so he performed the Isha prayer in the mosque, where he found Sufi Dayem Ullah (RA) in a separate Zainamaz. Here Saitan tried to create a sense of hatred in his mind but next moment he could detect himself and understood in his mind that Shah Sufi Dayemullah (RA) was a real devotee of Allah.

Up to midnight 1 A.M. discussions of Comings of Hazrat Imam Mahdi (A) continued and he was charmed with his discussions and took his meals with him. After dinner Sufi Dayem Ullah (RA) narrated pathetic tale to how he lost his father in his childhood and remarked whatever God does is for the God and welfare of mankind.

After three days, Sufi Dayemullah (RA) offered him Tk.Three hundred to reach his home in Chittagong. He reached his house after a laps of 3 days and on reaching home he came to know about the death of his father but at the same time he got a letter from Sufi Dayemullah (RA) and the said letter served as a palliative to his bereave soul and acted tonic to his damned spirits caused for the bereavement of his father and as early as possible he came back to Dhaka as a mad man in order to See Sufi Dayemullah (RA).

The prayer, which was offered at the Mazar Sharif of Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) not only blessed him to meet his cherished pious soul but also helped him to get the blessings of his renowned son Shah Sufi Dayemullah (RA). His Eminency was now engaged in social works, which have reached him to a place, whence he is enjoying the fortunes and blessings of a great man.

Those, who believed in the existence of Allah and perform benign works will surely be reward them with the highest place in the gardens of heaven, under which the sweet river flows for ever and where the good souls will stay permanently. Behold the rewards of the good workers.

The holiest Quran has depicted in the above verse the merciful qualities of Allah and really these are to be taken a good head of. In this material world, which is besets with the contradictory aspersions of greed and voice, the news narrated in the above verse really gives a sense of profound happiness and joy.

Eminency feels tempted to raise an episode in order to depict the dept of solemnity of the Imam of Hazrat Shah Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA)

Hazrat Dayemullah (RA) at young age, once demanded for some money from his father. His father Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) directed his son to ask for money from Allah by going to the Mosque instead of asking from him; Allah is the owner of everything on earth in the infinite space.

When Hazrat Sufi Dayemullah (RA) prayed for money after performing salat, he got for Annas (quarter). Another day after prayer he asked “Gilap” or sweet and through the mercy of Almighty Allah, he got it after his performance of prayer.

On realizing the great utility and instant return offering prayers, Shah Sufi Dayemullah (RA), after each Esha Salat goes to “Sejdah” with extreme sublimity and puts up his demands before Allah who is omnipotent. In this way he is getting the blessings of his father Sufi Abu Musa Kalimullah (RA) up till today and thus have been able to raise himself to a covetable position in society as well as in the Darbar of Allah.
