Sultan Syed Makhdoom Ashraf Jehangir Simnani [d.807] Ghawth al-A'lam, Mehboob-e-Yazdani, Hadrat Mir A'had 'al-Din Radi Allahu anhu Kicchocha Shareef. This great Wali-Allah was born in the year 708 Hijri at Simnan country in Persia. His father Hazrat Sultan Sayyad Ibrahim Noor Bakhsh (ra) ruled the region for about 20 years. Apart from being a noble and respected governor, he was also a great scholar, theologian and Sufi. His mother, Bibi Khadijah Begum was also in the lineage of great mystics and saints. She was very pious and is especially renowned for his namaaz-e-Tahajjud regular. Hazrat Makhdoom (RA) was admitted Madrassah at the age of 4 years, 4 months and 4 days. And at the age of 5 years, he became Hafiz-e-Quraan with 7 ways to make the Qiraa'aat (reading) in a period of 7 months and 26 days, and he completed his Islamic education at the age of 14 years .

He was proclaimed King of 6th Simnan and ascended the throne at the age of 15 years wafaat (death) of his father. During his reign he took the help of Hazrat Sheikh Ala-ud-Dowla Simnan (ra) for his spiritual education and Shariah practiced with all devotion and great detail in its ibaadats (prayers) without violating his sunnat and Nafil in each namaz. He was very popular with his constituents. During the same period, he saw in a dream the great wali Ouwaÿss Qarni Hazrat (ra) who taught him the 'Marifat' (step spirituality). Also, the mystical creature, Hazrat Khidr Aleh Salam the initiative to wazîfahs special and he left his throne at the age of 25 years to devote himself full time into the path of Allah, saying he 's has never experienced neither peace nor personal pleasure to be on a throne. He then took the road to India courtesy of his mother. There, he met Hazrat Makhdoom Jalal-ud-Deen Jahânia Jahangasht Bukhari (ra) and profited enormously from his spirituality during the 3 days spent in his company. This great Wali asked to go to Bengal where his true spiritual guide, Sheikh Hazrat Jalal-ud-Deen Ganj Nabaat awaited. En route to his Murshid (spiritual guide), he arrived in Bihar where janaazah Hazrat Sheikh Sharf-ud-Deen Yahyah Moonîri (ra) was waiting to perform Namaz-e-Janaaza according to his will. Hazrat Ashraf (RA) performed the namaz Janaaza and at the same time, according to this will he bore the coat 'Khilafat' of this great Wali as a gift. Arrived in Bengal, he was greeted by his Murshid and others. After the salaam and Musaffa (braces), his Murshid made him eat 4 bites and betel his own hand and Hazrat Makhdoom (ra) took the bai'at (spiritual commitment). It was filled with spirituality during its 12 years in the company of his Murshid and his permission, he received the title of "Jahangir 'dress and' Khilafat '. It is from here that his mission began.

Hazrat Makhdoom (ra) made several sorties and stayed for a few days Khanqah (place for spiritual meditation) Hazrat Banda Nawaz Gessou Daraz (ra). Here he became 'Ghawth' (upper class Awliya-Allah), with the title 'Ghawth-ul-'Aalam', 1st Rajab 770 Hijri after Wafat his Murshid of the time. Through its mission, thousands of people found the lighting in their life and they found the right path of deen. At 27 ramadwaan year 782 Hijri, he was with his disciples when Rouhabâd heard echoing across a voice saying "Ashraf is my beloved! "This gave him the title of 'Mahboob'. At dawn one morning in Makkah-Sharif, another great Wali-Allah on behalf of Hazrat Nizâmu-ud-Deen Asfahani (ra) Hazrat Makhdoom seen approaching towards the Ka'bah-Sharif for the namaaz-e -Fajar, he exclaimed: "Come, come O 'Mahboob-e-Yazdani', this title from Allah ta'ala you be fortunate!.

Hazrat Makhdoom (ra) said: "Whoever follows me into the path of Allah, succeed in the Deen, Duniya and the Aakhirat, and the day it receives the Qiyamat maghfirat (forgiveness of Allah)." Another great opportunity for spiritual life is that one day he was in the Khanqah of another company of his Murshid, Hazrat 'Ala al-Haq Wadeen (ra) who was in full meditation (zikr), the walls resounded the name of 'Jahangir'. The Murshid raised his head and appointed Hazrat Makhdoom the honorary title of "Jahangir ', draws related to the afterlife. Great scholar, Hazrat Makhdo (ra) has written about 400 to 500 kitab (book) in various languages. 2 days before wafaat (death), he went to the spot where he wanted to be dafann (buried), he saw the paper and a pen. He began to write books for 2 big names' Basharat-ul-Muradin and 'Resal Qubriya-e-', which contain great wonders of Islamic spirituality. It was intéqaal (died) on 28th Muharram in the year 808 Hijri at the age of 100 years and was dafann the middle of a lake 'Kashosha' Sharif (state of Uttar Pradesh) in India.

Among the great quotes from this great Wali include very simple: "You must be an obedient servant of Allah and you must be kind to your brothers and sisters." Aauzo Billaahi Minash Shaitaan Nir Rajim
Bismillaah Hir Rehman Nir Rahim ; Allah - Beginning With The Name Of - The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.
Allahumma Salli Alaa Sayideena Muhammad Wa Alaa Aalihi Wa Sahbihi Wa Sallim.
Allahumma Salli Alaa Sayideena Muhammad Wa Alaa Aalihi Wa Sahbihi Wa Sallim.

Gems of Wisdom by Hadrat Makhdoom Simnani (Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anho) Knowledge is the shining sun and skills are its rays.After Iman (Belief) and Touheed, (Unitarianism) it is obligatory on man (Banda) to know injections of Shariat (Revealed Law) and Aquaede Haqeequah (True doctrines)Gain knowledge as illeterate devotee is the follower of Devil.The difference between Islamic Savant and worldly savant is just like the difference between pure and impure silver.Astrayed learned is like the sunken boat which sinks itself and makes others drown.Learned without action is like a glass without tin (Qualai).Don't be empty handed of actions and conditions; make sure that only Knowledge can not help you.Remembrance of virtuous persons and memoir of mystics is a light that cast shadow on the seeker of guidance.Recollect any word of a holy man; and if it is not possible keep in mind his name; You will be benefited.To know is shariat (Revealed Law) and make practice in accordance with knowledge is Tariquat (Path) and to achieve objectives of both is Haquiquat (Reality).He, who does not follow Shariat (Revealed Law) in tariquat, (path) is deprived of benefits of Tariquat (Path).The man who will be staunch follower of shariat, (revealed law) the way to Tariquat will open automatically; and when he would have obtained Tariquat (path) with shariat (revealed law) the splendour of Haquiquat (reality) will itself be illuminated.

In suluk (Holy way) if one commits slightest deviation from the way of obedience to The Holy Prophet (Salallaho Alaihi wa Sallam) then it will be impossible to reach desired destination.To create love and affection of Allah in the hearts of Slave (Banda) and get their hearts engrossed in the intimacy of Allah is the work of Mashaekhe Tariquat (Holy persons of path).Shaikh (Elder) is just like a competent and experienced physician who diagnoses medicine suitable to the disease and temperament of the patient.Food is like a seed which takes root in the land of salik's stomach and grows tree of actions (Aamal) if the food is lawful the tree of good action grows; and if it is unlawful, the tree of disobedience and sin grows; if it is doubtful the tree of vicious ideas and negligence in prayer grows.

After performing Faraezo wajebat (Divine command and obligatory) it is essential for seeker of spirituality to pass his valuable life in the company of holy persons as only one meeting with such persons is so much useful that can't be gained by a number of chillah (sitting in meditation for forty day) and vigorous Mojaheda (Great struggle).A slave (Banda) should pray and merciful (Karim) is worthy of kindness; one should be so engrossed in his prayer that he should forget one's existence.It is the condition that one should be guarded from sin as is the conditions for The Prophet (Salallaho Alaihi wa Sallam) to be guiltless (masum).One of the conditions of wali (Friend of Allah) is that he should be follower of The Prophet (Salallaho Alaihi wa Sallam) in his word, action and belief.The condition for wali (Friend of Allah) is that he should be learned not ignorant.Aulia (Friend of Allah) are companion and minister of the Divine court and act according to wishes of Allah.

It is a historical fact that Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alayh made Kicchocha Shareef the spiritual and guidance centre at the intimation of his Shaykh Hadrat Ala al-Haq Wadeen Pandawi Rahmatullahi alayh . He built Khanqah-e-Ashrafiya taking part in the construction work with his disciples. Together they built two Mosques as well as the tomb - a final resting place in his own private room. This wasnt an easy time for Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alayh as Hermits and other unsavoury people frequently darkened the facade of Kicchocha Shareef with their antics. But such was his spiritual presence and purity of character that he was able to light the candle of Islam. This special characteristic as a Sufi made the non-believers spellbound, and in a short period, millions of non-believers accepted Islam and came into Silsila-e-Ashrafiya (Order of Ashrafia).

In short, Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf's Rahmatullahi alayh services to the cause of Islam andtasawwuf are undoubtedly of great value and a landmark in that period of history of Islam.

Thoughts of other Sufis & Shaykhs

Hadrat Shaykh Abdul Haq Muhaddith Dehlavi Rahmatullahi alayh

In his book 'Akhbar ul Akhyar', Shaykh Abdul Haq Muhaddith Dehlavi Rahmatullahi alayhdescribes Hadrat Sayyad Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alayh as a great Sufi saint of his time. He also wrote that the shrine in Kicchocha Shareef was very effective in repelling Aseband Jinn, and was very well known for this. With reference to 'LATA'IF AL ASHRAFI' compiled by Hadrat Nizam Yemani Rahmatullahi alayh he acknowledged the greatness as a servant of Islam by presenting his theological and philosophical ideas particularly his notion about the belief of Firaun (Pharoah).

Hadrat Shaykh Abdur Rahman Jami Rahmatullahi alayh

Hadrat Shaykh Abdur Rahman Jami Rahmatullahi alaih in his famous book 'Nafatullins' has derived his theological and philosophical sayings showing the utmost regard to this supreme Saint of Islam. The opinion of Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alaih and Shaykh Abdur Rahman Jami Rahmatullahi alaih are the same about Hafiz Sherazi. In this book 'Nafatullins' he wrote one of the holiest saints of the Chistiya Order deems no Diwan (collection of poems) better than the Diwan e Hafiz Sherazi. When referring to "saints of Chistiya Order" he actually means Hadrat Sultan Sayyad Makhdoom Ashraf JahangirRahmatullahi alayh.

Hadrat Shaykh Abdur Rahman Chisti Rahmatullahi alayh

Hadrat Shaykh Abdur Rahman Chisti Rahmatullahi alayh wrote "He (Makhdoom Ashraf) hadKhilafat from fourteen Orders because he has availed the company of all the Holy Sufi saints of his time."

After Hadrat Nizam al-Din 'Mahboob e Ilahi' Radi Allahu anhu he revived the spiritual instructions and reformation : In the declaration of realities he was the interpretor of the words of Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala, Hadith of the Most Beloved Prophet Salla Allahu Ta'ala 'alayhi wa 'aalihi wa Sallam, and sayings of Amir al Momineen Hadrat Imam Ali-e-MurtazaKaram Allahu waj'hu.


Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alaih was on such a supreme status of mysticism and spirituality that unaccountable miracles (karamat) at different times and at different places are scattered in the pages of history. It is an undeniable fact that every momentof his life was a miracle orientated, impressive and effectual. Some of these karamat are stated here ;

[1] Ameer Taymur once advised Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alayh to travel to see him. When seeing Hadrat Makhdoom AshrafRahmatullahi alaih approach him, Ameer Taymur was captivated and showed utmost regard towards him. Climbing on a hill with Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alayh he said, "As far as your eyes can see; I will make a gift of all areas coming in your sight'. Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alaih said, " You are not the owner of the area coming in my sight," Then he kept his hand on his head and asked as to what he was seeing. He replied that he was seeing Makkah and Madinah then again he enquired if that area belonged to him. Ameer Taymur replied negatively and was thoroughly ashamed,and since his then hisAqeedah and supplication have increased a great deal after seeing such a great mystic in whose sight is the whole world.

[2] There was a woman who once came to the khanqah with her dying son, tearfully she asked Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alaih to pray for her sons life. During this time the boy took his last breath and died before him. The woman began to weep bitterly and said with folded hands, "You are a Walli-Allah bring my son to life." to which he replied, "life and death are in the hands of Allah; what can a banda (slave) do." Hearing this the ill-fated woman started weeping hysterically and with such a mournful voice that Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alayh's heart filled with pity and an astonished condition prevailed on his face. Solacing the grieved woman, Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alaih said in full eminence, "I give ten years from my life so for ten years this boy will live." He prayed to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala for his life and then ordered the dead boy to stand up in the name of Allah. The 'dead' boy suddenly stood up and lived exactly for a further ten years.

[3] When Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alayh came to Kicchocha Shareef from Jaunpur, the first man to meet him was Malik Mahmood. They both had visited the area (where the main khanqah and shrines are today) surrounded by water and was told that this was the very place intimated by Shaykh Ala al-Haq Waddeen Rahmatullahi alaih. Malik Mahmood told him that there lived a stubborn and ageing hermit with five hundred of his disciples and who would not tolerate his presence there. Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alaih asked one of his followers to go and ask the hermit to vacate the place and go elsewhere. The hermit in reply said the only way to remove him from there was through the force and power of a miracle. Hearing this Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alaih asked Jamal al-Din Rawat who had accompanied him via the chain of his disciples, to go and present himself daily before the hermit and ask of him whatever he desired. Jamal al-Din was reluctant at first, but after Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alaih called him and put some betal leaf into his mouth and his courage returned. So Jamal al-Din Rawat went with renewed vigour and energy to face this juggler of a hermit. The hermit used all his powers of conjury but failed. Eventually he threw his hand stick in the air and Jamal al-Din Rawat too sent the stick of his Shaykh in the air, and brought down the stick of the hermit harshly. Finally the hermit admitted defeat and asked to go before Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alaih. When he got there with his five hundred followers he bowed his head at the feet of Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alaih and embraced Islam with all of his disciples.

[4] One morning Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alayh was sitting with his disciples after Fajr prayer. Shortly after some rogues appeared there to ridicule him. They had brought with them a coffin with a man wrapped up pretending to be dead and asked Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alaih to say the funeral prayer. At first he refused, but these jokers kept pressing him so eventually he asked one of his disciples to say the funeral prayer to satisfy them. After the disciple said the prayer the rogues waited for their man in the coffin to rise up and surprise everyone. But to their amazement this man who was alive moments before had actually died. This news spread like wild fire in the town and caused great uproar. Hadrat Nizam Yemani Rahmatullahi alayh has a couplet on this incident;
Kase Ku Az Buzurgan Khanda Giraft
Bajuz Girya Azo Digar Che Ayad
Meaning : He who ridicules the elders, would get nothing except weeping.
[5] Once Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alayh was passing through Banaras with his disciples. One of the disciples was fascinated by an idol in a temple, and kept staring at it. The caravan of Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alayh had marched some distance and it came known that a disciple had lagged behind and was in this temple.

Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alayh asked one of his followers to go and tell the 'idol' to come with him. This follower went to the temple and did as he was instructed. To everyones amazement the 'idol' moved and changed into a pretty girl and came before Hadrat Makhdoom AshrafRahmatullahi alayh and embraced Islam. Hadrat Makhdoom AshrafRahmatullahi alayh then performed nikah and married this former 'idol' girl with that disciple. To which Hadrat Mawlana Jalal al-Din Rume Rahmatullahi alayh has said ;
Awliya Ra Hast Qudrat Azilah
Teere Jasta Baz Gardanadz Rah

wissal_sbconsultancy Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi alaih left this world on the 28th Muharram 808 A.H. Some time before his passing away he had his dargah (shrine) constructed exactly the way he wanted. On the 26th of Muharram he went to visit his dargah and noticed a 'pen' and some paper on the side of the grave. He sat in the grave and wrote two booklets namely 'Basharat ul Muradeen' and 'Resal-e-Qubria', an extract from Resal-e-Qubria is presented below :

"In this short time that i have stayed in the grave seventy thousand splendor (Tajally) of elegance of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, angels descended on this Fakirand intimate Muqaraban of Allah Subhanhu wa Ta'ala Angels showed so much exalting (izaz) and kindness that cannot be expressed in words. The announcer from the sublime court of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala -'Bargahe Elahi' announced in the world of Angels (Alam-e-Malakut) that "Ashraf is my beloved (Mahboob) I write kindness and forgiveness on the forehead of his disciples and show care to his disciples with absolution (Maghferat) and forgiveness (Mafee)". All praise to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala his glad tidings for our companions. After that it was the order of AllahSubhanahu wa Ta'ala and eight thousand angels, thirty thousand of Haramain Shareef, one thousand from Bait al-Muqaddus, one thousand from Abdal of Maghrib (west), one thousand from Rejalud Ghaib of Sarndip, and one thousand Maradaneh Ghaib from Yemen will perform your bath. Your funeral prayer will be said in front of Baitullah Shareef and you will be buried in the earth for the benefit of slaves (Banda) ; he who comes on your grave will get his barkaat and maghferat."
