Holy Life of His Holiness
Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia
Mehboobe- Elahi Hazrat Khawaja Nizamuddin Aulia was one of the most renowned and highly respected Sufi saints of
Karamat (Miracles) of Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia
Almighty God is believed to have exalted some of the Saints so highly as to bestow upon them the title of ‘Beloved’ and has granted such mysterious power as makes them the very cause of the world’s subsistence. The great Sufi Saint of India Hazrat Khawaja Nizamuddin Aulia was truly such a saint and he is better known by his title of “Mehboobe-Elahi” (The Beloved of God).Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia is one of the most renowned and reverend Sufi Saints the world has ever known.
Important Note: "Karamat" means Miracle, a supernatural event or a wonder.The word 'Miracle' is being used here just to explain the meaning of "Karamat" as there is no other suitable word in English language for Karamat.Miracles are only attributed to Prophets or Messengers of God.Karamats are only attributed to Sufi Saints (Aulia-Allah ,the friends of Alimighty God),both are supernatural events bestowed upon great personalities of Islam only by Almighty Allah.
The Karamats of Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia are many, but only two of them are narrated here.
First Karamat Once a group of friends desired to pay homage to the saint. One of them, who did not believe in the qualities of the saint, said “what these dervaishes (saints) can do?” The others condemned him for this. But he was adamant and even dared to prove his contention. As usual when the others bought some sweets to be presented to the saint, this man did not buy anything. On the other hand he carried some dust in a folded piece of paper. When all of them had paid their respects to the saint and placed their gifts before him, the attendant began to gather them. As he was about to collect the packet of dust also, the saint ordered him to leave it there itself, saying “I will use this dust for my eyes”. The disbeliever felt ashamed of his mean act and at once became a disciple of the saint.
Second Karamat Once fire broke out in the house of the Jagirdar of Sarsava,in which the royal firman(document) was also burnt down.He came to Delhi to get another firman,which he got after a great difficulty.But while he was returning he lost the document on the way.He was very sad and came to the saint Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia and requested him to pray for the recovery of the firman which was to be filed in a case.The saint asked him to perform some fatiha in the name of his Shaikh and Spiritual Master Hazrat Baba Fariduddin Ganje Shakar Rehmatulla Alehey with some sweets.Accordingly he went to sweet shop and bought some sweets.The shop keeper was about to tear a sheet of paper to cover the sweets.The Jagirdar(Landlord) anxiously asked the man not to tear the paper but to cover it completely .He came back with the sweets again to meet the saint and found the sheet of paper was his lost firman.
