About Maulai Hasan ji Feer Shaheed bin Maulai Ali

5th Wali ul-Hind/ Mansoob ul-Hind

Sayyidi Hasan-Feer-Shaheed bin Maulai Ali bin Maulai 'Abdullah was the grandson of Maulai 'Abdullah and became the 5th Wali ul-Hind/ Mansoob ul-Hind. He lived during the era of 16th Dai' Sayyidna Ad-Dai' Abdullah "Fakhruddin" bin Ali Al-Anf'. He was a brilliant person and well-known for his wisdom. He had answered many difficult questions during his lifetime. For example, he explained an aayat which in direct translation is; - "One cannot enter Jannat (Heaven) lest a camel passes through a needle-hole". He also explained the significance of 3 identical heads. There is a riwaayat where the Roman Emperor sent three identical heads to Feroz Shah Tughlak, the king of Delhi, to decipher which of the three heads was of greatest value. None whom the king called could solve the problem. Then he was told about Maulai Hasan-Feer-Shaheed who was invited to solve the query. Maulai Hasan-Feer poured water into the ear of each head. In the case of the first head, the water trickled through the mouth and he said this is the head of a ahmaq (fool). For the second, it trickled through the other ear and he said this was the head of a jaahil (uncivilized person). Finally in the third, it trickled through the throat into the chest and said that this was the head of an aaqil (intelligent person). Hence he explained that the third head held the greatest value. The king was greatly impressed and presented him with an area of land which is now known as Delmal (Denmal) in Gujarat. He fell victim to his enemies, the failed Ulema at the court of Delhi King, Feroz Shah Tughlak, and became Shaheed. His Qabr-e-mubaarak is in Delmal (Denmal), Gujarat.

Translated Seerat of Maulai Hasan Peer, from Biography of 28th Dai' Sayyidna Ad-Dai' Ja'afar bin Sayyidna Sulaiman Al-Hindi called Nuzhat ul-Azhaan by Mulla Sa'adullah Husami (4th September 2012).

Intention to perform Ziyaarat of Maulai Hasan Peer

This year we intended to perform the Ziyaarat of Maulai Hasan Peer since I had pledged for this Ziyaarat. Even my father Sayyidna Sulaiman bin Sayyidna Hasan Al-Hindi saheb Aa'lalallahu Qudsahu pledged for this Ziyaarat, but life did not give him a chance to fulfill this and it was contingent upon me to complete this pledge. We left Ahmedabad along with a large contingent of our Ikhwaan and reached the Mubaarak Rowza after three days. We met some mo'mineen from Sidhpur close to the Rowza-e-Mubaarak who were very devout, sincere, brave and charitable. We spent the night in the vicinity of Qabr-e-Shareef and we were guarded by our guards who were with us during this travel who warned us that the threat of robbery is very high in this area. Especially this night was very dangerous since the thieves considered this night auspicious of all the nights of the year to steal. They believed that if they successfully managed to steal and rob someone tonight their entire year will be very successful and fruitful to steal; and if they failed tonight then during the entire year they will have no luck finding prey. They did not find us as a prey the entire night as we spent the night guarding our belongings but in the morning a few minor things were stolen due to the negligence of one of our guards, but only after the Fajr had dawned which we did not care much about.

We spent the entire day at the Rowza-e-Mubaarak and with this day's Ziyaarat we fulfilled the pledge of Sayyidna Sulaiman bin Sayyidna Hasan Al-Hindi saheb Ata'lallahu Qudsahu, thanking Allah Subhaanahu wa Ta'ala for having achieved this Fazl, together with a bounty of Eatables, both in eateries and juices and when it was night, we were again warned; therefore we went to a small village close by, called Delmal (Denmal) in the local dialect to rest the night in the houses of that village.

We had a tour of the temple there , made out of stones erected by a Kaafir king; especially the temple having built of very large pieces of stones and one wondered how they must have carried such large stones up there. all carved with the imprints and carvings on them. in this multi-storied temple is the darb or pathway deep inside the temple, the stones ,so huge as if they are hills themselves are enjoined together to make this temple. There are no hills or mountains in the surrounding areas, therefore it is said, these stones must have been hauled using elephants from distant lands and to get these stones to the height they must have used very strong scaffolding.

It is said , the stones were lofted by some sort of cranes .?? Seeing these lofty monuments ,one can only say that: Certainly all strength is for Allah alone , there is no no god is but Allah. Every living creature is in awe of Him ,and He is the only one to have given the man strength for this work , except Him all are perishable .

Pondering on this huge temple, I couldn't help realize that not even a remnant is left behind of such a powerful king who built this temple, this huge architecture could not prevent him from death, neither his strong army could help him to be alive, nor his sons, wealth, kingsmen, noblemen, wives, ministers, or his subjects made him fortunate enough to be an everlasting king. But every one submits to Him alone who is Allah Subhaanahu.

Even today the artisans of Del Maal are considered expert in the art of building. These artisans encourage their children to take up this specialization rather than getting them educated and in reading and writing skills. These people marry much later in life believing that a young man will not devout time to his art, if he marries early in life and do not achieve the expertise they should.

Every one of them have their tools, lands and houses, bequeathed to them from their ancestors, from the days of their fore fathers, who were all endowed by the Kings of olden days acknowledging their skills and artisan ship. The amazing thing about these artisans is that, none of the starts their daily work or going to the temple or to their lords until they perform the Ziyarat of Maulai Hasan Peer, first thing in their chores; even though all of them are Kaafirs and Mushriks. But they are ardent devotees of Maulai Hasan Peer, and I believe that the mediation of Maulai Hasan Peer, has made them prosperous and rich and thus they are protected from many of the evils such as shirk and intoxication .

Visiting Patan City

After spending the night in the village, we came back to the Holy Rauza. The first day's Ziyarat was performed in fulfillment of my Holy Father's pledge and today's Ziyarat was in completion of my pledge, on the third day we performed the Tatawa Ziyarat. Having completed all our chores here, we decided to visit the city of Patan which is one coach distance from here. We witnessed buildings that were constructed by placing only bricks on top of each other and were not cemented using gravel or mud. When inquired, I was told that there is a certain tax within the city that is levied on permanently cemented houses and such loosely built houses are not taxed. There is a huge Jame' Masjid there, but since Islam and Muslims are in weakened state, only Juma'h prayers are offered in this mosque. The mosque has capacity for thousands. The whole mosque, its pillars and arches ,walls and courtyard are built out of Reqam and Belza stone which is found in abundance in the area as no other stone is found here .No other Masjid could have been like it in comparison If the people had prayed their Namaz here and made their supplications firmly, but this is truly in the favored fortune of Madinati Sana, the Capital city of Yemen.

There is a large reservoir outside the city (which is called Sad Shahsapar), so huge that is akin to an ocean when it is full with water up to it's brims tossing waves all around.

We take refuge in Allah's abode in not falsifying this description. Every word has it's own analogy. In the middle of the lake is a remnant of a structure made out of baked clay and mud and grove, speaking it's own glory of yester-years.

It could have a glorious palace in the middle of the lake if the builder of this place could have bought granite's and stone slabs to protect the walls of this lake and the Place, and would have been a wonder of it's time all times to come. Alas, Only Allah knows, may be the builder could have willed it this way, but did live to see this done.

The city has three main gates leading to the bazaar, which is similar to Ahmedabad, every other gate is comparable to other in glory , one being in the middle and the two others on sides but compared to the activity and appeal of Ahmedabad this is much less.

(Here Sayyidna Ja'afar did not mention Maulai Ya'qoob bin Maulai Bharmal, who is commonly addressed as Maulai Mahboob whose tomb is often a visited place in Patan. This tomb is currently under the control of awaam. It was said that he had come from Yemen. Allah knows, why this was not mentioned) .

Maulai Yaqoob bin Maulai Bharmal as chronicled by 30th Dai' Sayyidna Ali bin Sayyidna Sulaiman Al-Hindi in his various history books.

Journey towards Sidhpur and a few days stay there.

After visiting Patan we decided to head for Sidhpur, which is the birth place of my ancestors. There was some disagreement among the Ikhwan to visit Sidhpur. Some preferred going back to Ahmedabad while others wanted to accompany us to Sidhpur. Despite the disagreement, it was decided that we head for Sidhpur early in the morning and be back at the nightfall. On the way our companions deciphered an ominous sign from a special chirping of birds, and said that there is bound to be some altercation with us by the end of the day while others said it is a good omen to proceed and some others also said, Yes we should proceed, but it should be in the protection of some soldiers who were with us. We entered Sidhpur by evening. We entered the Masjid of the 24th Dai' Sayyidna Ad-Dai' Yousuf bin Sayyidi Sulaiman Al-Hindi for Maghrib and Isha prayers. Following wudu we were getting ready to perform the prayers by taking our place in the Qibla and Masjid with our companions when some Dawoodi's stopped us saying that, "Only the designated Imaam can lead prayers in this mosque and particularly in Qibla, and no one else because he has more precedence than you." We were very conciliatory towards them saying "There is no need to incite violence here, we'll just go take a corner and perform our Namaaz there by giving Azaan and doing Iqaamat and perform our Namaaz there; you can have another one of corners of this Masjid to yourselves." The Dawoodi's remained adamant and said "we will not allow you to offer prayers with Jamaat in this Masjid". We said, "We will certainly offer our prayers here and towards Allah is our will to do".

They said, "How is it permissible for two different Jamaat's to offer prayers in the same Masjid at the same time behind two different Imaams?" We said, "Firstly, We are more incumbent than you as we came here in this Masjid for prayers before you all; and Secondly, We are more appropriate than you all as you should know that both our groups belong to different sects and faith. We do not share the same faith as each other. In your eyes, our deeds; not even the Namaaz are acceptable and in our view your prayers and deeds are unacceptable. In the path of Allah-e-Zuljalaal, as Allah Ta'ala says in His book Quraan-e-Kareem:

For those who have forwarded their deeds, we have made such deeds nothing but a flying dust, blown off. And, He also says in their praise:

The first ones to arrive are the preceders in the eyes of Allah Ta'ala as told by Quraan-e-Kareem:

"The preceeders are such that they do not lie" and also says; "the first comers are the preceeders and they are the protege and intimates to ''Allah-e-Zuljalaal''.

And Thirdly, Hear that We are the descendants of the 24th Dai' Sayyidna Ad-Dai' Yousuf bin Sayyidi Sulaiman Al-Hindi aa'lallahu Qudsahu and We are his immediate family and this is justly corroborated by Aayat-e-Quraan-e-Kareem:

And some of the blood relatives are more closely related than others.

(Therefore we hold more right to be the custodians of this mosque because our Grandfather, 24th Dai' Sayyidna Ad-Dai' Yousuf, has built this mosque and is named after Him as "The Masjid of Sayyidna Yousuf". Since we are more closely related to Him, we have more, in fact, complete right to lead the prayers in this mosque.") With this brief and logical response, we started the prayers following the Adhan and Iqaamat, but we hardly finished our Maghrib prayers, when the Dawoodi's started altercation with the soldiers who are with us standing guard over us in this journey. The ordeal almost came to physical violence, but our Sidhpuri Ikhwaan intervened and explained to the leader of Dawoodi's "What are you doing? Such treatment with honored guests, moreover, with the progeny of Sayyidna Yousuf? We are ordered to behave congenially towards guests and with respect and dignity. We should be honoring them by being good hosts and not harm them in any way. You are in violation of all these commandments. Don't be like the Ahmedabadi's, who harmed the reverend children of Sayyidna Yousuf who were their guests. Instead of being kind to them, they committed all sorts of atrocities on them. "And if you do not heed this advice then beware, we offer our services and wealth to protect them fully".

After offering Maghrib prayers we also offered Isha prayers there similarly. We had just finished the prayers, when the same Dawoodi individual, Maam ji bin Ali who had warned us before and stopped us came to us and warmly extended his welcome to us. He bid us Ahlan wa Sahlan and apologized for the rude behavior that happened because of his shallow thinking, not knowing the pro's and con's of the matter . We Thanked Allah for this, and by this intervention of Allah Ta'ala matters were setteled for us. We stayed in Sidhpur for several days. The ikhwaan there treated us with warmth and courtesy and conducted elaborate Sidhpuri welcome banquets in our honor with loads of delicacies. They used ghee like water and every one of their meal overflowed with ghee. Similarly the sweets were in abundance and there was never any shortage of meats. But they try to avoid slaughtering of zabeehat's in their houses for the reason that so much of social intermingling is there that it is impossible for them to refuse any one from kuffar asking for their bit of zabeehat from them, seeing as a huge blessing from them Thus, spending a few days in the glory of the Ikhwaan's sincerity, devotion and elaborate functions, we left Sidhpur with a deep impression of gratitude and joy. Towards the end of our stay, when we decided to leave for Ahmedabad, we also invited all our Ikhwaan to an elaborate banquet and gave them a taste of Ahmedabad's culinary delights - the Ikhwaan were very happy. Thus our brief journey was very successful and joyous.

Some interactions during the stay at Sidhpur

During our stay in Sidhpur, after compromise with the Dawoodi's, we had a chance to visit many of their homes. We noticed that many of them were not even familiar with basic rules of purity and Tahaarat and did not even know offering prayers correctly. We visited many of their mosques and noticed the same thing. Except a few, most of them were not familiar with the rules of purity and proper Namaaz. In one persons home there was a water storage which was filled with sand and dirt. We found that at one time this was the house of Sayyidna Humaam and in his child hood and prior to leaving for Yemen, he often stayed here. When this person got possession of this house, he filled the water storage with sand. We asked him the reason for doing this and he replied, "This water storage has no use for us. We draw water from a well and to store it we have plenty of utensils and that is enough for us. We are afraid if we fill up the water storage with water, our children might drown in that and we will have to suffer dearly."

Details of a few of our Ikhwaan from Sidhpur

Here, among our momineen, there are two who are very prominent. One of them is Miya Jivabhai who is famous for his honesty and piety. The second one was Miya Ali Khan bin Moosa Khan who was known for his valiant, bravery and straightforward attitude in speaking the truth. The enemies were scared sick of him and he died in Agra. There the enemies poisoned him and martyred him. May, Allah be Gracious on both of them - Aameen. Among the grateful-living was a brother, Mulla Baboo ji bin Khan Muhammad who has outstanding capabilities in matter of religion and the worldly affairs. He is very quick to dispel the arguments of enemies against the Haqq and to attack them with strong proofs and arguments. He is an expert in the knowledge of logical reasoning and the arts of debate and discourse; He knows Quraan-e-Majeed by heart. He is also a poet, fluent in four languages, Arabic, Persian, Hindi and Gujarati and has a good command of these languages.

People's devotion towards Maulai Hasan Peer.

The people of Sidhpur are deeply devoted to Maulai Hasan Peer. Every one, according to their own capacity pledges their commitments. Most of them pledge their sacrifices in the name of Maulai Hasan Peer and give their closest elder or the Aamil the amount of their pledges and they properly spend that amount on the Rauza. There are many miracles associated with Him that are commonly related by people, who either witnessed them or heard it from someone else. It is said that when there was no tomb on his Holy Grave, there was a very large tree that covered the Holy Grave, in whose shade the visitors would sit and recite Quraan and Dua etc. Some enemy tried to cut this tree and the moment he raised his hands to chop off the tree, his hands were paralyzed and became useless.

In the nobility and intellectual prowess of Maulai Hasan Peer, a commonly narrated story by people is this: Once the king of Delhi was reciting Quraan-e-Majeed and he arrived at this Aayat-e-Kareema

(Translation:To the one who denies Our Aayat's and is arrogant towards them, the doors to the Heavens will not be opened. And such people will not enter Jannat until the camel shall not enter through the hole in the needle.)

The king could not understand anything from this Aayat. He contemplated a lot and could not fathom it. He kept thinking why would Allah keep this condition for the deniers (Kafirs) to enter the Jannat? Is it possible for a camel to go through the hole in the needle? He thought long and hard and finally gave up. Then he summoned the Ulema of the city and asked them for the meaning of this Aayat, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer. Some said that it is impossible for Kuffar (deniers) to enter Jannat since it is impossible for the camel to go through the hole of the needle. But the king was not satisfied with this answer either.

Maulai Hasan Peer at the King's court; His satisfactory answers. Reasons for his martyrdom.

When the king summoned the Ulema of Gujarat, Maulai Hasan Peer also accompanied them to the king's court. The king asked these Ulema the same question. No one had been able to provide a satisfactory answer so far. He sat very quietly, and kept listening to their self made conjecture in response from everyone else. Finally the king turned towards him and asked him "Yaa Shaikh!! Do you have a satisfactory and true response to my questions?" He said "Yes!! By the Grace and Kindness of Awlia-Allah, I do have the right response to these questions." The king said "OK Then!! Please grace me with your answer and satisfy my heart. Allah will Bless you with a noble reward for this effort of yours." He said "Before I expound the meaning and detailed explanation of this Aayat, you will have to obey a command from me. If you accept that then its fine, otherwise I don't want to invite your anger unnecessarily."

The king, in pursuit of his knowledge, accepted to abide by his condition and command. With that He said "Oh King! At this time your position is that of a student and my position is that of a teacher. It behooves you to come down from your throne and let me sit in your seat and you should sit before me with folded hands like a student should in front of his teacher and ask me the question respectfully." The king immediately came down below from his throne and with all due respect and honor made Him sit on the throne and sat in front of him respectfully. All those present and the courtiers were watching this event in amazement and disbelief. The king presented his questions with complete humility and obedience to Him." Maulai Hasan Peer responded, "Oh King!! I have already given my answer to your question. Despite being a king and monarch of such a mighty empire, the humility and modesty you displayed in front of a pauper and poor beggar like me; that is the explanation of this Aayat. Allah Ta'ala says …

"All the birds and animals on this earth are Ummat like humans), therefore among animals there is some characteristic that is similar to humans."

A camel has a large body and possesses power and strength just like you, Oh King! You possess a mighty kingdom, power and strength and me being a lowly beggar, humble and meek, is in the eyes of people as small as the hole in the needle. Therefore the real meaning of this Aayat is that the deniers and adulterers (kuffar and mushrikeen) and the enemies of Tawheed and Risaalat, will not be allowed in the Jannat until they submit themselves in front of Awlia-Allah, who themselves have no value in the eyes of the world and hold no respect nor position among them; but these Awlia-Allah are great in the eyes of Allah subhaanahu, and Allah subhaanahu does not call you in His presence but by and through them ,

and those deprived by Allah do not enter the Jannat, ever, and will not be guided to the correct path. And those who are not guided by Allah, will not find any one to guide them to Rushd and Hidaayat.

The king liked this logical and meaningful response very much and something that languished in his heart was finally relieved. He showered him with honors and requested him to him stay with him for a long time. He stayed with the king for few days answering all his queries , and when he was getting ready to leave the king presented him with expensive and elaborate gifts with full and regal glory and widaa that befits a King.

The king was very happy but others so called Ulema who miserably failed in their attempts were envious, raging with jealousy. They schemed together and when he was returning back from the king, and was near to his home, killed him by sword, at the same place where his tomb is built today in Del Maal۔

A very large dome is built over the tomb and people from all over the place pledge their offerings and receive answers for their prayers and blessings.
