All recognized religions of
the world show that divine preaching and miracles have always
been co-related and all the prophet, Saints, messenger of God
and founder of various world religions were endorsed with
supernatural powers to propagate the divine message.
Gharib Nawaz (R.A) as one of
the Wallie of Allah, was also endowed with such "Supernatural
powers to propagate the divine message for this, I would say
that his full life right from his birth till death was full of
miracles. He did whatever, he wanted and the almighty always
granted him blessing without any delay and if we discuss in deep
about his miracles this full website will get completed in
miracles only so I am writing few of his miracles.
Says Hazart Qutubuddin
Bakhtiyar Kaki (R.A), " I never saw Hazart Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A)
angry with anyone as long as I remained with him. One day,
Hazart Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A) accompanied me and a servant
Shaikh Ali were going out. Suddenly a man caught hold Shaikh Ali
of his clothes and started abusing him. Hazart Khwaja Gharib
Nawaz (R.A) asked the reason of the dispute. He said " Shaikh
Ali is debtor and is not repaying the amount given to him."
Khwaja Sahib (R.A) said, "Leave him. He will repay your debt."
But the man again insisted. So Khwaja Sahib (R.A) got angry and
he spread his shawl on the ground and asked to take from the
shawl amount equal to the debt and warned not to take more than
debt. The man picked up the money certainly more than the debt
and soon his hand dried up. So he started crying and asked for
mercy. Khwaja Sahib (R.A) pardoned him and his hand recovered.
The man immediately became the disciple of Khwaja Sahib (R.A).
It said that once Khwaja
Sahib (R.A) was passing through a Jungle, some atheist dacoits
came in his way. They used to snatch belonging of travelers and
if the traveler was a Muslim they used to kill him as well. When
these decoits faced Khwaja Sahib (R.A), there happened a
miracle, The band of decoits who had been engaged in looting and
killing the people, started trembling with fear, and fell on the
feet of Khwaja Sahib (R.A) and said, "we are your slaves. Be
kind to us" when they repented Khwaja Sahib (R.A) made them
recite Kalima and thus they accepted Islam. Khwaja Sahib (R.A)
forbade them for looting and murdering in the name of the
It is said –During his tour,
Khwaja sahib (R.A), Ohududdin Kirmani (R.A) and Shaikh
Shahbudin(R.A) were sitting together at a place and discussing
some religious point of faith. Suddenly a young boy with a bow
and arrow in hand passed by Khwaja Sahib (R.A) saw him and said,
" The boy is the future king of Delhi."
And his prediction proved to
be true and boy became the king of Delhi with the name of king
Shamsuddin Altamash and ruled the country for about 26 years.
One day, a weeping old woman
came to him and said, "Huzoor, the ruler had killed my innocent
son. For God sake, help me."
Hearing the woman, Khwaja
Sahib (R.A) was moved very much. He with his sceptre in his hand
accompanied the old woman. Many followers and disciples also
accompanied him. He arrived at the dead body of the boy, stood
there silently and gazed at it for quite a long time. Then he
stepped towards the body, put his hand on It said, " O boy, if
you have been killed innocent, come to life by the grace of
ALLAH." He just completed his sentence, the boy was alive.
Khwaja Sahib (R.A) further said, " The man should be so close to
ALLAH that his prayers are to accepted without any delay. If it
is not, then he is not a Faqir."
Though Khwaja Sahib (R.A) had
no means of income but he set up a langerkhana ( alms- house).
The food was so abundant there that all the poor and needy of
the city were fed with it. It is said that he directed the Chief
of the alms- house to demand as much money as needed for the
langarkana. The Chief used to come to him daily in the morning.
On his arrival Khwaja Sahib (R.A) used to unfold the corner of
his Musalla and asked him to take whatever required from the
hidden treasury. He himself used to keep fast and broke it with
the dried barley bread, weighing not more than five misqal (few
A man came to him with the
bad intention of killing him and showed great faith and loyalty
to Khwaja Sahib (R.A). But his intention was revealed to Khwaja
Sahib (R.A). So he said, "I am here, Do whatever you desire."
Hearing this, the man started trembling and with great
humbleness he told that it was not his own desire. Some other
man wanted him to commit this heinous crime. Then he took out
the dagger, and placed it before Khwaja Sahib (R.A) and asked
for punishment. But Khwaja Sahib (R.A) said, " Revenge is not
the practice of the Saints. Well, I pardon you." The man fell
into the feet of Khwaja Sahib (R.A), repented, accepted Islam
and became a disciple.
It is said, during the period
of Khwaja Sahib (R.A) stay in Ajmer, the people from far and
nearby, who went for the pilgrimage of Haj, on return used to
tell that they have seen Khwaja Sahib (R.A) circumambulating the
Khana-e-Kaaba; while in fact Khwaja Sahib (R.A) never want for
Haj after his stay in Ajmer.
Once, Hazrat Khwaja
Qutubuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki (R.A) was meeting with the king in the
fort of Delhi. The other officials were also present there.
Suddenly a characterless woman came there and asked justice. She
requested the king to get her married, since she was under the
state of mental pain. The king asked her to whom she wanted to
be married, and which sort of agony she is facing, she said,
"The fellow who is very close to you and called himself as Qutub
has raped me. As a result I am pregnant. " Hearing the entire
episode, all those present were shocked . They pulled down their
heads with shame. Qutub Sahib (R.A) was also ashamed . He could
do nothing but he turned his face towards Ajmer and called
Khwaja Sahib (R.A) for his help. As and when Khwaja Sahib (R.A)
heard cry of his dear disciple for help, he immediately reached
there. He asked Qutub Sahib (R.A), "What is the matter ? Qutub
Sahab (R.A) could not speak a single word and tears started
rolling out of his eyes. The episode was revealed to Khwaja
All this made Khwaja Sahib (R.A)
very much angry. He turned to the crooked lady and said " O
child, inside womb, your mother has alleged that Qutab Sahib (R.A)
is your father. Tell whether it is true ?"
There was a clear voice, from
inside the womb, heard by all present there. The child said, The
statement is all wrong. The woman is a prostitute and has been
sent by the enemies of Qutub Sahib (R.A) to insult and defame
him." All the people were much surprised on hearing all about.
The woman himself admitted her false allegation.
Khwaja Sahib (R.A) said, Only
Allah can award honour and repute." And then he returned. Except
Hazrat Khwaja Qutubuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki (R.A), all were much
surprised on arrival and disappearance of Khwaja Sahib (R.A).
It is said that one day, one
of his disciples came to him. Khwaja Sahib (R.A) was busy in
offering prayers. When he finished his prayers and turned to the
disciple the disciple said "huzoor the ruler of the city has
ordered me to exile without any fault of mine. So I am in great
trouble." Khwaja Sahib (R.A) kept silence for some time, then
said, " Don’t worry he has been punished. "When the disciple
returned to the city, he heard the news that the ruler fell from
the back of the horse and has died.
One day, Khwaja Sahib (R.A)
was sitting near Anna Sager, A shepherd with some calves passed
by, He said to the shepherd, " Dear give me some milk. "The
Shepherd took it as a joke and said " Baba, they are calves and
do not give milk. Khwaja Sahib (R.A) smiled and pointed towards
a female calf and said, "Brother, I will take her milk." When
the shepherd laughed, Khwaja Sahib (R.A) insisted, "Just see".
The shepherd was very much surprised when he saw that her udders
had become large and were full of milk. So he milked the calf
which was enough for 40 persons. Seeing it, the Shepherd fell
into the feet of Khwaja Sahib (R.A) and became his disciple.
One day, Khwaja Sahib (R.A)
was sitting among the disciples and preaching. Suddenly he saw
something on his right side. He stood up as paying respect to
somebody. It happened again and again as and when he glanced
towards right side. When the assembly was over and people left
away, one of his servants asked the reason as to why he had been
standing up repeatedly on having a look at right side. Khwaja
Sahib (R.A) said, "The Mazar of my Peer-o-Murshid is located in
that direction. As I looked towards that direction, the Mazar
came before my eyes, so I stood up to offer respect."
It was the assembly of the
saints. Everyone of them agreed to show his miracles. Thus
Khwaja Usman Harooni (R.A) turned his Musallah and took out some
pieces of gold and gave them to a Durvesh and asked him to bring
some sweets for all present their. Shaikh Ohuddin Kirmani (R.A)
touched a piece of wood and it turned into gold.
When Khwaja Usman Harooni (R.A)
insisted, Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A) knew through Divine
inspiration that one of the persons of the present assembly is
hungry but could not tell others because of modesty . Thus
Khwaja Sahib (R.A) took out four barley Rotis and put them
before the person.
