The Spiritual Connection among Saints (Awliya Allah)

Once Hazrat Mian Ghulaam Ullah Sharaqpuri (May Allah be please with him) wrote a letter to Grand Shaykh of Naqshbandi Mohsini Sufi Order, Muhammed Yousaf Ali Nagina (May Allah be please with him) for inviting him to a religious gathering at a place called ‘Sangla Hill’. He asked Sayyidi Grand Shaykh to reach there while he was also coming from his side. On the way to Sangla Hill Grand Shaykh Muhammad Yousaf Ali Nagina (May Allah be please with him) met Hazrat Baba Hassan Shah Wali (May Allah be please with him) who is also a saint of Allah Almighty.

Baba Hassan Shah mentioned to Sayyidi Grand Shaykh, “Today ‘Satto’s’ prayer (Salat) has been missed (Qazaa) and put him a garland of 70 rupees”.

Baba Hassan Shah (May Allah be please with him) asked Grand Shaykh Muhammed Yousaf Ali Nagina (May Allah be please with him) to give him the shirt he was wearing. Sayyidi Grand Shaykh replied, ‘Though I am going to the congregation but you can still have my shirt and he started to take his shirt off. Grand Shaykh Muhammad Yousaf Ali Nagina (May Allah be please with him) had great respect and love for Baba Hassan Shah (May Allah be please with him). 

Baba Hassan Shah (May Allah be please with Him) again mentioned, it is alright do not give your shirt to me but told Sayyidi Grand Shaykh to give the piece of cloth that he had wrapped around his waist instead of the shirt. When the Grand Shaykh was going to give the cloth, Baba Hassan Shah told him to keep it on and bring another one from his blessed house. Grand Shaykh Muhammed Yousaf Ali Nagina (May Allah be please with him) brought another cloth for Baba Hassan Shah (May Allah be please with him) from home and then restarted the journey towards congregation.

After the congregation, at night, Grand Shaykh Muhammed Yousaf Ali Nagina (May Allah be please with him) came to the room where Hazrat Mian Ghulaam Ullah Sharaqpuri (May Allah be please with him) was sitting. There was a great rush as the disciples and devotees were coming for ‘Dua’. Sayyidi Grand Shaykh went to another room to have some rest. In the meanwhile, a woman brought a fine handmade bedding for Hazrat Mian Ghulaam Ullah Sharaqpuri (May Allah be please with him). She said that she had always deemed of presenting the bedspread to Hazrat Mian Ghulaam Ullah Sharaqpuri (May Allah be please with him) whenever he came there. When she left, Hazrat Mian Ghulam Ullah asked someone to give the bedding to Sayyidi Grand Shaykh Muhammad Yousaf Ali Nagina (May Allah be please with him).

However, When Grand Shaykh Muhammad Yousaf Ali Nagina (May Allah be please with him) saw the bedding he said that it was a gift for Hazrat Mian Ghulaam Ullah Sharaqpuri (May Allah be please with him) and he should keep it. Hazrat Mian Ghulaam Ullah Sharaqpuri sent it again and Sayyidi Grand Shaykh returned it again. The third time Mian Ghulam Ullah Sharaqpuri (May Allah please with him) called him from the next room and said ‘He is telling me to provide you with a nice bedding, who should I listen to, You or Him?’

When Grand Sayyidi Shaykh asked him who was insisting, Mian Ghulam Ullah Sharaqpuri answered, the same person to whom You gave the piece of cloth on the way coming here.

Note: That day Grand Shaykh Muhammad Yousaf Ali Nagina (May Allah be please with him) missed (Qazaa) ‘Zuhar’ prayer (Salat) and a garland of 70 rupees was also put around his neck. Considering Baba Hassan Shah (May Allah be please with him) did not make physical visit to this particular congregation neither Mian Ghulam Ullah Sharaqpuri (May Allah be please with him) physically met with Baba Hassan Shah before arriving in to this congregation.
