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.


It is the faith in Hazrath Syed Moosa Shah Qadri Baghdadi (RA) that draws people of all faiths to the Dargah Shareef every Thursday, seeking assurances of good health, answers to their prayers and the blessings of the holy. The Dargah Shareef, looked after by the descendants of Hazrath Syed Moosa Shah Qadri Baghdadi (RA) from the time his Dargah was raised, is however, only a part of the campus today. 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.
Needless to say, anywhere from India, you have access to Chennai through air, roads and railway. If you are reaching Chennai via bus, please get down at Chennai Mofussil Bus Terminus (CMBT), Koyambedu and from there, please pick up a bus for "Anna Salai urf Mount Road and ask anybody about the Dargah and they may guide you well.

He emigrated in Chennai before many centuries ago to show the right path of truth from Baghdad to India and while visiting different areas he was settled down in Madras city. It is said that during the year 1857 one British engineer has issued orders for the widening of the road and due to this order there was a proposal of the demolition of the mausoleum of Hazrat Syed Musa Shah Qadir Chennai. The iron rod for digging whole through mausoleum was going to touch the mausoleum, then at that time suddenly the mausoleum was moved from its place and it has become at slanting position from its existing place. At the strike of the iron rod second time, there was started coming from the fresh blood from mausoleum site. During that period doctors have examined the blood and it has confirmed that the blood belongs to the human being and fresh. So, for this reason, the site of the mausoleum has kept as it is.

And another day one poor lady has brought that silver moon and she has said that her son has stolen it but he is suffering from stomach pain throughout the night and when her mother has returned back, the sliver moon to mausoleum then the pain of the stomach of the boy was finished and he became well.

  10. ஹஸ்ரத் சையத் மூசா ஷா காத்ரி சென்னை சுருக்கமான வாழ்க்கை வரலாறு

     

        
    ஹஸ்ரட் சையத் மூசா ஷா Qadir சென்னை கல்லறை சென்னையில் புகழ்பெற்ற மவுண்ட் சாலையில் அமைந்துள்ளது. பல நூற்றாண்டுகளுக்கு முன்னர் அவர் பாக்தாத்தில் இருந்து இந்தியாவுக்கு உண்மையைப் பற்றிய சரியான பாதையை காட்டினார். பல்வேறு நகரங்களில் அவர் சென்னை நகரத்தில் குடியேறினார். 1857 ம் ஆண்டு ஒரு பிரிட்டிஷ் பொறியாளர் சாலையை விரிவுபடுத்த உத்தரவுகளை வெளியிட்டார், இந்த உத்தரவின் காரணமாக ஹஸ்ரத் சையத் மூசா ஷா காதிர் சென்னையிலுள்ள கல்லறை அழிக்கப்பட்ட ஒரு முன்மொழிவு இருந்தது. கல்லறை முழுவதும் தொங்கிக்கொண்டிருக்கும் இரும்பு கம்பம் கல்லறைக்குத் தொடுவதற்குப் போயிருந்தது, அப்பொழுது திடீரென்று கல்லறை அதன் இடத்திலிருந்து நகர்த்தப்பட்டு அதன் தற்போதைய இடத்திலிருந்து சாய்வாக நிற்கிறது. இரும்பு கம்பியின் இரண்டாவது முறையாக வேலைநிறுத்தத்தில், புதைக்கப்பட்ட இடத்தில் இருந்து புதிய ரத்தத்தில் இருந்து வர ஆரம்பித்தது. அந்த காலகட்டத்தில் டாக்டர்கள் இரத்தத்தை பரிசோதித்திருக்கிறார்கள், இரத்தத்தை மனிதனாகவும் புதியதாகவும் அது உறுதிப்படுத்தியுள்ளது. எனவே, இந்த காரணத்திற்காக, கல்லறை தளம் அதை வைத்து உள்ளது.
    சென்னை நகரத்தில் மிகவும் புகழ்பெற்ற மற்றும் நன்கு அறியப்பட்ட அவரது இன்னொரு அதிசயம், சிறுவர்களால் அறியப்பட்டாலும், வெள்ளத்தால் அழிவுகளால் சென்னை நகரம் கரைந்து விட்டது, ஆனால் கல்லறை மீது இருந்த மின் விளக்கு நன்றாக வேலை செய்து கொண்டிருந்தது. இந்த நிகழ்வு 1943 ம் ஆண்டு அக்டோபர் மாதம் 10 ம் திகதி நடைபெற்றது. சென்னை நகரத்தில் கடுமையான மழை வீழ்ச்சி ஏற்பட்டது. இந்த காரணத்திற்காக நகரத்தை கட்டியெழுப்பப்பட்ட பெரும் வெள்ளம் ஏற்பட்டது. நகரத்தில் பெரும் நஷ்டமும், சம்பவங்களும் ஏற்பட்டன. நகரத்தில் மின்சாரம் வழங்கப்பட்டது ஆனால் கல்லறை மீது இருந்த மின் விளக்கு நன்றாக வேலை செய்தது. இந்த வரலாற்று நிகழ்வு மற்றும் ஷேக் பெரும் அதிசயம் கோட்டை செயிண்ட் ஜார்ஜ் கெஜட்டெட்டில் பதிவு செய்யப்பட்டது.
    உர்ஸ் (இறப்பு ஆண்டு விழா) காலத்தில் சாந்தாம்பல் விழாவில் ஒரு சதுர நிலவு அங்கு கல்லறை மீது வைக்கப்பட்டு, அது ஒரு நாள் திருட்டு இருந்தது என்று கூறப்படுகிறது. மற்றொரு நாள் ஒரு ஏழை பெண் அந்த வெள்ளி சந்திரனை கொண்டுவந்துவிட்டாள், அவள் மகன் அதை திருடிவிட்டதாக கூறினாள், ஆனால் இரவில் முழுவதும் வயிற்று வலியால் அவதிப்படுகிறார், அவளுடைய தாயார் திரும்பி வந்தவுடன், சன்னதிக்கு சந்திரன் சடலத்தின் வயிற்று வலி சிறுவன் முடிந்ததும் அவர் நன்றாக ஆனார்.
