Dear Brothers & Sisters -As-salāmu alaykum,
Bismillāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm,
Deriving strength from my Pir O Murshid” Khawaja Moin-ud-din Hasan Chishti let’s dare to travel across the fence (Spiritually only Pls). Smiley Smiley

Your Shrine is always lit with four lamps,
O the Red Robed!
The red robed God-intoxicated Qalander, glory unto you!
And here I come to light a fifth lamp in your honor.
Here I come to light the fifth lamp.
O, the Lord, the friend & the sire of Sindh & Sehwan.
The red robed intoxicated God.   
The lord in every breath of mine, glory to you!

Listen to the Melody

On one of my recent visits to Jaisalmer in Rajasthan I enquired with the guide “How far is our neighboring country”. “App. 200 Kms” prompt comes the reply.
My mind wondered across the fence, a desire strong enough to visit some of the Sufi saints Vis-a-Vis Baba Farid, Data Ganj Bakhsh or the kindest of all “Usman of Marvind” alias “Qalander”.
Hazrat Lal Shehbaz Qalandar was a prominent saint of the Indian subcontinent.
He traced his relationship from Hazrat Imam Jaffer Sadiq, born in Marvind.   
He was a spiritual disciple & caliph of Hazrat Shaikh Baha-ud-din Zakariya of Multan, & also received spiritual blessings from Hazrat Shaikh Mansur & Shaikh Baba Ibrahim.
He completed the Holy Quran & acquired a sound knowledge of the fiqh & hadis.

Sindh was demarcated as the area for his spiritual, moral, & social activities.Arriving there he settled in Sarwali & began to preach the doctrine of truth.
By his precept & practice, he brought about a change in the life of the people by condemning ignoble local practices & customes.He did so not through any coercion but by persuading people to lead a good life.
By good life he meant a life of beauty, harmony & truth based on love & mutual regard.
His tomb lies in Sewhan Sindh. He had all the outward & inward graces of life.
He was an accomplished man, a perfect dervish.
He had all the outward & inward graces of life.
He was a good Arabic & Persian poet.
Ending in anticipation that a ‘Salaam ‘be sent from this side of the fence to Sewhan & May his heavenly shrine be always safe & sound for Pilgrims to travel around!

O lord of Sindh, “Lal Surkh”,
You are so near yet so very far so very far,
This fence is a prejudice & shall always debar,
Oh Beloved you appear to be farther than the stars!

If time permits visit: -
