The Spiritual Journey to the Shrine of Khawaja Ghulam Nabi Lillahi (RA)

Shaykh Mudassir Mohsini,Shaykh Aqas Mohsini and Shaykh Abid Noor Mohsini were present in the garage with Mawlana Shaykh Mohsin Munawar Yousafi Al Naqshbandi  for the Maghrib prayer when Mawlana Shaykh asked for the book Anwaar e Mustafa from his Library. He started reading it and when He reached page no. 70-75, He found that Hezrat Khawaja Ghulam Murtaza  had also written about the etiquettes of paying homage to the Pir-o-Murshid. Khawaja Sahib had written that whenever he went to pay respect at the ‘Deraghf’ of Hezrat Khawaja Ghulam Nabi Lillahi , he left his Tasbeeh(rosary) at home and when he reached about one and a half mile from the destination, he took off his Blessed Turban and shoes. When Shaykh Mohsin Munawar Yousafi read this affair He experienced a state of ecstasy and wept for hours. He narrated that this event reminded Him of the time when He used to go to pay respect to His Beloved, His Shaykh Yusuf Al Nagina and He also took off his shoes before entering the Area of the Dergah.

Mawlna Shaykh desired to pay visit at the shrine of Hazrat Khawaja Ghulam Nabi Lillahi  where the renowned Sufis and Awliya Allah like Hazrat Mian Sher Mohammed Sharaqpuri  and Hazrat Khawaja Ghulam Murtaza  had visited with bare feet as a token of respect.

Therefore, Mawlana Shaykh decided to call Allama Muneer Yousafi to ask whether Lillah Sharif was in India or in Pakistan then He thought of asking Mufti Zubair Sahib who was associated with the Sufi Order. The same night, Amir Waheed Sahib’s wife called the Respected Wife of Mawlana Shaykh, Uzma Mohsin and asked to take the children to Khewra Mines for excursion. The next morning Shaykh left for Khewra mines with His family. They were travelling on the motorway and Amir Waheed Sahib’s car was behind them. Shaykh first thought of calling Mufti Zubair Sahib then decided to call him on His way back. Amir Waheed Mohsini called Him to inform that He should keep watch for the board with an arrow pointing towards Khewra Mines. Mawlana Shaykh, the Knower of Divine Knowledge took the turn when he saw the arrow.

They had travelled for five miles when they reached a village. Just outside of the village there was a board with the words ‘Astana Alia Lillah Sharif’  written on it. Shaykh asked a man standing there whether the Maqaam was of Hazrat Khawaja Ghulam Nabi Lillahi  who was the Shaykh e Tareekah of Hazrat Khawaja Ghulam Murtaza .The man answered in the affirmitive. Hazrat Shaykh took off His shoes, turban and cap in respect before going towards this Dergah in particular.

Shaykh said that He did this act in the love of one of the devotees of Hazrat Khawaja Sahib who took off his shoes and turban before visiting the ‘astana sharif’.

After paying the visit, Shaykh Mohsin Munawar Yousafi asked Amir Waheed Mohsini about the distance of Khewra Mines. Waheed Sahib answered that they were now on the way to Kalar Kahar while Khewra Mines was on the other side. Shaykh told Amir Waheed Mohsini that he had asked to take the turn where the arrow was pointing and had done so.

Shaykh on hearing this said that I had seen the arrow pointing towards the other side and not on that side. In addition I even had my wife who witnessed the same. Thus, later Shaykh exposed that it was the Spiritual connection of Him with the Awliya Allah that He was asked to come to Lillah Sharif.
