Hazarath Kunangudi Masthan Saheb's {Chennai}




Hazarath Kunangudi Masthan Sahib (Rali) had the deepest love for Qutb-ul-Aqtab, Hazarath Ghous-e-Pak (Rali). He has sung so many songs on Allahu Jalla Jalaluhu Thaala, Rasul-e-Kareem Sallallahu Alaihi Va Sallam and on Hazarath Ghous-e-Pak (Rali). Every word in those songs is an ocean of Irfan.
What a lay-man will understand by reading the above lines. That's the height of love, Hazarath Kunangudi Masthan Sahib (Rali) had towards Parwar Digaar-E-Alam, Allahu Jalla Jalaluhu Thaala.

He lowered his Nafs in that way. He used to say - there is no sinner in the world but I'm the greatest sinner. He says - "Our body is septic tank" which our toilets are connected to. In all the possible ways, he had lowered himself in front of ALLAH, Rasul-e-Kareem, Sallallahu Alaihi Va Sallam and Ghous-e-Pak (Rali) that nobody can do.
SubhanALLAH. I can't express his Darajah/Makham/Heights he achieved in Wilyath. So many Awliyah-ALLAH used to go very deepest in the jungle and tried to meet Hazarath Kunangudi Masthan Sahib (Rali) to convey salam and on the way, many Awliyahs died as well. Hazarath Kunangudi Masthan Sahib (Rali) used to be in thorns in Zikr status. He didn't marry because of the love He (rali) had towards Mahboob-e-Subhani (Rali)
Hazarath Kunangudi Masthan Sahib (Rali) requested ALLAH to hide his Makham and want to be away from Dhuniya even after his Pardha. Very few may guide you when you go to his Dargah in Royapuram, Madras.


It's a very very very simple Mazar-e-Mubarak but Hazarath Kunangudi Masthan Sahib (Rali) is the Qutb-e-Qalandhar of his time undoubtedly. He got Baiyath directly from Ghous-e-Pak (rali). He (rali) used to call Ghous-e-Pak (rali) as Kunangudi (meaning - the one where good character stays ) so Ghous-e-Pak (rali) kept the same name to him (rali) while giving Baiyath.
His height of Wilayath is the highest of the highest of the highest of the………………………………………….go endlessly…SubhanALLAH…I will talk for years about Hazarath Kunangudi Masthan Sahib (Rali).
Everest is a tiny particle in front of the love Hazarath Kunangudi Masthan Sahib (Rali) had towards Ghous-e-Pak (Rali). He says to Ghous-e-Pak (Rali)
"You will control crores of Dhuniya (which ALLAH has created) in your hand as ball and play with it"
"You will shake the 7 Dhuniyas (Which ALLAH has created) and play with them on youn hand"



"You will stitch Dhniya/Aahirath into an Atom and play with it"
"You will insert the 7 seas into a mustard and stir them"
"Please come in front of this Ghulam "
"I am becoming the worst and worst even after I submit myself in your holy feets"
"You're the Badhusha and my Peer-o-Murshid, in whom good character (kunangudi) stays"


Hazarath (Rali) used not to wear any dress but used to close his hygienic part alone. He used to live in the deepest/dreadful jungle area where even Animals will fear to live. Thorns are his houses where he (rali) used to be in Zikr status. Qutb of Qutbs in his lifetime. World No.1 lover of Ghous-e-Pak (Rali)

Hazrath Syed Moosa Shah Qadri Baghdadi {Chennai}




Dargah-e-Hazrath Syed Moosa Shah Qadri Baghdadi (Rahmathullahi Alaihi) urf Annasalai (or) Mount Road Dargah.
This is the most famous Makham of all Chennai Dargahs and attracts people of all faith from all walks of life including music director, A.R. Rahman, who visits every Thursday, Arcot Prince, High Court Chief Justice and various famous icons of various industries.
Hazrath Syed Moosa Shah Qadri Baghdadi (RA) arrived from Baghdad Shareef in the middle of the 17th Century (450 years back) and lived on the site of what is now better known as the Mount Road Dargah. In life, Hazrath Syed Moosa Shah Qadri Baghdadi (RA) is said to have had great healing powers. When he died, he was buried next to his house and here his family raised the Dargah Shareef. And to it have flocked the sick over the years, seeking the benefits of healing from his spirit.


When a British engineer in the past ordered the shrine to be demolished for road-widening, his workmen refused to proceed with the work when, at the first attempt at excavation around the building, blood spurted from the soil. When the engineer forced them to resume work, he collapsed - dropped dead, say some - the moment trenching began again.

Dominating it in recent times has been one of the largest mosques in South India, with a 100-feet tall minaret. The five-storeyed Makkah Masjid, with its five 5000 sq.ft. halls that can accommodate 5000 worshippers at a time, may be a landmark, but it is the spirit of Hazrath Syed Moosa Shah Qadri Baghdadi (RA) that make this, one of the city's holy sites.
The Minar-e-Pak at Dargah-e-Hazrath Syed Moosa Shah Qadri Baghdadi (RA) is quite prominent apart from the LIC building and the Tarapore Towers in Mount Road.



Dargah-e-Hazrath Syed Moosa Shah Qadri Baghdadi (RA) is located in Anna Salai, formerly known as Mount Road, is the most important arterial road in Chennai, India. It starts at the Cooum Creek, south of Fort St George connecting with St. Thomas Mount in Saidapet. This 15 km stretch of road running diagonal across the city has become the hub of business for the city. It has been developing in a large pace in the past century. The British developed this road during the colonial era, and they named it as Mount Road, after Little Mount, till which the road extends. Later on, the road was renamed as Anna Salai by ex - Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. The word 'Salai' in Tamil translates to road in English. Anna Salai is maintained by the National Highways Authority of India. This is the only road in Chennai where lane system of traffic is followed.

Story of friendship of auliyas hazrath khader hussain auliya and khwaja lalu bhai qasir chisti (ra):-
Hazrath khader hussain auliya ( r.a) had praised about lalu bhai qasir that he has victory over nafs and have built many forts in the heaven and has gain high status in wilayat and once hazrath khader hussain auliya and khwaja lalu bhai qasir had went to dada pahardh ( baba buddan giri hills in chikkamangalore ) and when the reached the hills.,they both wanted to meet hazrath dada hayath qalander for blessings and both challenged who will first meet dada hayath qalander (ahle rasool) and both the auliyas went in their own ways in the dada hills and when they came from two opposite sides and coincided in the middle hazrath dada hayath qalander came and met them, he blessed both the auliyas and gave a needle to khader hussain auliya and a green plant (known as bail in urdu) to khwaja lalu bhai qasir (ra) which means that khader hussain will be single powerful auliya and khwaja lalu bhai qasir will see auliyas in his future generations. Great auliya allahs from abroad and parts of india came searching hazrath lalu bhai qasir and have written many books, risalas and have left literature . They have serve people in every aspects of live in their times. Many auliyas took shelter near by to his residence in his times. He was sadr-e-dilbar of auliyas in his time. Centre of love for auliya allahs in his time.

Many poor people with difficulties and problems use to come even from outside the states to meet him and take blessings . He gave them good preachings of islam and used to solve their problems. Hundreds of great darvesh of pengoda sharif of the time wanted him to become the head of the banawa fuqras because of his spritual powers.

Many great believers tried for sixty years to build the dargah
Hazrath khwaja qaseer's (ra) believers would had made the roza of hazrath lalu bhai qasir in diamonds and full gold., but calipha saheb rejected people not to make even dargah. Hazrath khwaja qaseer (abdul bhai qaseer ) said after my death in future a syed from syedi family will come and then he will put shelter (top) to the dargah. And this came true in coming days. Many rich people and great believers tried contineuously for about 60 years to construct dargah but could not construct even when they had enough money for construction.
One great karmath regarding islam / quran and christain missionaries and popes i will mention below :

Some christain missionaries and popes of st. Mary's basilica church , shivajinagar, bangalore were spreading christainity by offering money, lands and were attracting many poor and uneducated people towards christainity during hazrath khwaja lalu bhai qasir's period. Some disciples of khwaja saheb reported the matter that they are converting many people and greeting us also in our area. One big pope came to khwaja saheb and told him to become christain then khwaja saheb replied don't disturb us, pope never listen and forced him with tough conversation , khwaja saheb was silent and bend his head and was listening to the pope, who wanted him to become christain at any cost otherwise he would take some serious actions atlast khwaja saheb was silently listening and told the pope go back from where you have come but the pope didn't listen to khwaja saheb. Khwaja saheb's believers knew that some thing will happen. When khwaja saheb saw pope with red eyes, then the pope suddenly fell down and became unconscious then the disciples of khwaja cried and said forgive khwaja forgive this pope then after some time khwaja saheb came again from house and recited some ayats of quran then pope got consiousness and begged pardon from khwaja lalu bhai qasir. But other popes and missionaries of the church challenged khwaja saheb and told all people that khwaja saheb is a magic man ( jadugar) . They blamed khwaja saheb as a jadugar. Many people listened to the popes and were being converted again. Khwaja saheb's disciples felt bad and were very sad. They said khwaja our people are going towards christainity what to do. Khwaja saheb called all people and invited all big popes and missionaries at that time to come with their holy books and i will come with my holy quran, if your religion is true you make a big wooden wall house and come along with me inside the wooden house and put fire to this house, who will come save out without burnings , people should follow that religion. This was the open challenge of khwaja saheb and popes didn't agree and then many people opened their eyes and praised khwaja saheb. Even the popes use to visit his house from outside and they the popes use to kiss his house doors and respect a lot from that day and whenever they passed from this area. Other coming popes also respected khwaja saheb even after his death also some popes use to come and kiss his son khwaja qaseer (ra) in his times.

Langar khana and chhatti sharief :-
If you talk about langar, the only dargah in bangalore which has a great records and heights in langar is of hazrath khwaja lalu bhai qasir till today. Annual chhatti sharief of khwaja moinuddin chisti is celebrated in a grand manner every year. Also chhatti sharief is held here every month on the first friday of islamic calender date . Due to the popularity of the chhatti sharief in this dargah it is a good thing to see that chhattis are celebrated now in other dargahs of bangalore. Maintaining continuity in langars is important, mashallah it is seen in this dargah till today.
Note :- Some people give wrong informations about auliyas and the same is being published in the english newspapers. Please don't consider information from sites regarding Bangalore auliyas because people don't have correct information. There are dargahs of many famous auliyas of Bangalore whose information is not the news papers or sites. But All the Dargahs advertise mostly in urdu news paper only. I know and often visited all these dargahs and have confirmed the names with suggestions from experienced and old people of Bangalore.

The Bihari Sufis

The Bihari Sufis, who belonged to the Wajudia School, believed that 'Everything is He (Hama Oast) 'and reconciled religion with philosophy. Some of the early Bihari Muslims, as Sheikh Aaz of Karo (Gaya) and Ahmad Bihari, held views for which they were ordered for confinement and punished with chains. According to H. Shuaiv, Sultan Firuz Shah Tughluq at the instance of the orthodox Ulema of Delhi put the saint of Sheikhpura, Sheikh Aaz and Ahmad Bihari to death. Researches have revealed that Sufism had reached Bihar and its neighbouring regions even before the Turkish conquest. Its earliest adherents belonged to the Chisty and Soharwardia order of the Sufis.
Some of the well-known representatives of the Chisty order were Hazrat Mohammed Shahab-ud-din (RA) or 'Pir Jagjot' of Jethuli, Hazrat Badr-e-Alam of Choti Dargah, Hazrat Mir Fazlullah Gosain of Daira, Hazrat Farid-ud-din Tawaila Bux of Chandpura, Hazrat Ahmad Isa Taj of Bhaisaur, Hazrat Ataullah Baqhdadi of Mir Dad and Hazrat Syed Sadr-ud-din Zahidi (RA) - all belonging to the town of Biharsharif (Nalanda).
Saran, another notable center of activity of the Chisty Sufis, acquired considerable fame for its association with such scholarly saints as HazratMir Zahi Madariad Sarani of Sepaha, Hazrat Abdul Malik of Ushri and Hazrat Mohammed Syed Hasan of Hasanpura. Though the Shuttaria orders have now sunk into oblivion, there was a time when they had a great hold on the people of Bihar. Hazrat Syed Jamal-ud-din Madar of Makanpur (Uttar Pradesh) who had come over to Bihar was a well-known representative of the Madaria order. His mausoleum at Hilsa contains a dated inscription. One of the greatest Sufis of the Shuttaria order was Hazrat Abul Faiz Qazin Ola of Bania Basarh, near Vaishali.
The Qadri order is said to be "now one of the chief Sufi order of this province. We had one of its best representatives, Hazrat Sayed Muhammad of Amjhar Sarif in the Aurangabad district". The most important of all the Sufi orders in Bihar, however, was the Soharwardia, especially its sub-section, the Firdausia Silsila, one of whose most celebrated saints was Hazrat Sharf-ud-din Ahmad, who was born at Maner in 1262 and died at Biharsharif in 1377. The Mosques and Khankahs of the Sufi saints and preachers soon became centers of learning and veritable madarsas. Saif Khan's mosque and madarsa with its many saintly scholars on its staff, flourished till the end of the eighteenth century. The mosque of Hazrat Ataullah Zasinabi at Phulwari, bearing an inscription of Akbar's time, still stands and the madarsa still continues. Mulla Abul Husan of Darbhanga, the saintly scholar who taught Princess Zebunnisa, the accomplished daughter of Emperor Aurangzeb, and the five scholarly members of the syndicate that compiled Fatwa-i-Alamgiri, were all great saints of their time.
In Bihar, there are hundreds of holy places associated with various Sufi Saints. Some of ;those places are :-

The grave of a revered Muslim Saint is still pointed out at Hazrat Jandaha, 32 kms east of Hajipur and about 14 kms north of Mahnar village in the Hajipur sub-division of the Vaishali district. The Saint gave this name to the place and the river that flows past it, was known as Diwan Sah Ali. It is said that one hot summer day he felt very thirsty, and asked a by-stander to fetch him some water. The man was rude enough to reply that there was no water to be had close by. At this the Shah got very angry, and in his anger called on the water to flow that way, saying ' Biah ' (Persian-- ' Come '). Immediately a river began to approach the place, cutting away intervening land and causing devastation and ruin to the villages as it advanced. This so terrified the neighbouring people that they came in a body and implored the Shah to have pity on them and cause the river to spare their lands. He then called out Jandah (do not drown) and the river stopped encroaching and began to flow quietly in its present channel. Thus the river was called Baya and the town Jandaha. This Diwan Sah Ali was himself the subject of miracle, performed on him in his infancy by his uncle, who was equally remarkable and he lived in Hajipur where his tomb is still pointed out. His name was Makhdum Shah Abdul Fatah. It is said that, on one occasion, during one of his fits of ecstasy, which lasted for long periods, he threw his nephew Shah Ali who was only six days old into the river Gandak calling on the river saint Khwaja Khizr to educate him and take care of him. After six years, when he had recovered his mother told him what he had done and what a grievous injury he had caused to his brother and sister-in-law, who had never ceased bewailing the loss of their only child. Thereupon Makhdum Shah told her not to grieve, and going to the river said--" Khawaja Khizr, give me back my nephew, whom I committed to your care six years ago. " On this, the river began to roll and out came the boy, roved and jeweled like prince. Though young, he was thoroughly conversant with all the religious laws, and afterwards became the famous Hazrat Shah Ali from whom Hazrat Jandaha got its name.
