|Syedi AbdulQader Hakimuddin
Wafaat : 5th Shawaal, 1142 H.
Urs day also commemorated on 27th Shawaal each year.
Syedi Abdulqadar Hakimuddin (A.Q) was
privileged to be a descendent from a family of virtuous saints. He was
born in 1142 H corresponding to 1730AD during the time of Syedna Ismail
Badruddin II (R.A) and had the honour to serve five Duat Kiram (R.A).
Syedi Abdulqadar Hakimuddin (A.Q) authored a vast treasure of
Kutub-ud-Dawat (religious texts) and wrote thousands of poetic verses in
praise of Ahle Bait (S.A). Amongst the numerous beneficial traditions and
benevolent rituals that he established, Sabil-ul-Khaire-wal-Barakaat,
which is a collection of nominal sums from Mumineen to spend on their
welfare is one of them.
Unfortunate as it was, some foes of Dawat
with deceitful of intentions approached the local authorities and unjustly
complained the burial of Syedi Abdulqadar Hakimuddin (A.Q) to be conducted
in contrast to principles of Shariat. This eventuated to a forceful
digging of Syedi Abdulqadar Hakimuddin's (A.Q) Qabar Mubarak (grave) by
the authorities even as Mumineens' pleas were deliberately unheeded. One
and all witnessed Syedi Abdulqadar Hakimuddin's (A.Q) miraculously
composed posture even after twenty-one days in Qabar Mubarak. A fragrance
of musk emanated from him. Mumineen once again, buried him a little
further away from where his initial Qabar Mubarak was on 27th Shavvalul
Mukarram. Apparently, Mumineen therefore observe Urs Mubarak (death
anniversary) of Syedi Abdulqadar Hakimuddin's (A.Q) twice during the year.
Hakimuddin as he was by name and virtue, many a person procured
physical solace and spiritual enlightenment from his teachings and
guidance. Even today, hundreds of thousands gather at his Roza Mubarak to
fulfil their hopes and aspirations and never return disappointed.
