Hazrat Data Ganj Bakhsh's Sheik's Last Advice

Sheikh Syed Ali Hujwiri writes about his Shekih?s final advice to him in Kashf al-Mahjub, which is very useful indeed.

?He did at Bayt al-Jin, a village situated at the head of a mountain pass between Baniyas and the river of Damascus. While he lay on his death bed, his head resting on my bosom (and at that time I was feeling hurt, as men often do, by the behaviour of a friend of mine), he said to me: ?O my son, I will tell thee one article of belief which, if thou holdest it firmly, will deliver thee from all troubles. Whatever good or evil Allah creates, do not in any place or circumstance quarrel with his action or be aggrieved in thy heart?. He gave no further injunction, but yielded up his soul?. Source Kashf al-Mahjub, Page 167, translated into English by Prof. Nicholson, Published by Darul Ishaat, Pakistan.

Regarding his Shekih?s last advice we do not find any thing related to the City of Lahore. It proves that the Fawaied Al-Foeid?s analysis that Hazrat Hussien and Hazrat Syed Ali Hujwiri was not contemporary to each other and did not Bayt to same Sheikh. Therefore Shekih Hussien was not spiritually related to Syed Ali Hujwiri and after the death of Shekih Hussien our Sunni Scholars and Sufis do visit his shrine and that mosque has been build next to it by Sheik Muhammad Bakhsh, which stands to this date.
