The great Wallie of Allah Hazrat Gharib Nawaz (R.A) marched toward India, Along with his disciples (Mureds) armed with love of Allah and blessing of Nabi- Huzoor (S.A.W). He first reached Hearat from their he reached Sabzwar the ruler of sabzwar Shaik Mohammed Yadgar was very tyrant and of bad character, but when he came in contacted of this Wallie he was greatly ashamed of his past misdeed and pleaded with Gharib Nawaz (R.A) to show him the right way. Gharib Nawaz (R.A) was kind enough and show him the way which headed toward Allah later on this king left all the worldly pleasure and became the disciple of Hazart Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A).
From Sabzwar, Gharib Nawaz (R.A) Reached Ghazni, and their GHARIB NAWAZ (R.A) meet with Sultan-ul-Mashaikh Syed Abdul Wahid (R.A). From their Hazrat Qutub-ul- Aqtab (R.A), Khwaja Qutubuddin Bakhtyar Kaki (R.A) Shaikhul-Mashaikh Hazart Mohammed Yadgar (R.A) and Syedus-Sadaat Harzart Khwaha Fakhruddin Gurdezi (my ancestors) accompanied Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A) in his journey.
The caravan of saints of Allah was now on the border of India. Sky high mountains were in the way but the perfect determination of Khwaja Shaib (R.A) could not be deferred. With the name of Almighty, he stepped into mountains and after passing through the hills, valleys and other hindrances he arrived at the border area of Punjab.
At that time, when Khwaja Sahib entered India, King Shahabuddin Ghauri was defeated by Prithviraj and his army retreated to Ghazni. people asked Khwaja Sahib (R.A) and his companions not to proceed further as the king of Muslims had been defeated. But all the Saints of the group said : “You were dependent on swords but we have faith in Almighty.” Thus the caravan reached at the bank of Ravi river after passing through Fort Shadman and Multan.
Across the Ravi was located Lahore the capital of Punjab and the high rise spires of temples were telling the tales of splendor of the city. They crossed river and stayed at the mazar of Hazart Ali Bin Usman Hijweri, known as Data Ganj Bakhsh (R.A) just out side city wall.
Hazart Data Ganj Bakhsh (R.A) was one of the greatest saints of his time. So Khwaja Sahib (R.A) sat in Etekaaf and spiritually benefited himself and left. Leaving this place he recited the following verse :
“Ganj Bakhsh Faize-Alam Mazhar-e-Noor-e-Kuda
Naquisan Ra Pir-e-Kamil, Kamilan Ra Rahnuma”
The extemporary composed verse” is a reflection of his real sentiments and so it became so popular that even nowadays, people recite it whole heartedly as a duty.
After leaving Lahore, Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A) reached Samna (Patiala) and stayed there. Though apparently, people there were sympathetic but in reality they were enemy to him and wanted to harm him. and the mother of Prithviraj, King of Delhi and Ajmer was an astrologer and after having knowledge through her astrology, she informed her son about signs of a person who will be the cause of his destruction. In view of this prediction, the king asked the artists to sketch the person who resembled Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A) and sent these sketches to all the border areas. He also ordered his men to kill the person resembling with sketch as and where found.
Thus when Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A) reached Samna, King’s men seeing the resemblance, tried to stop him. But Khwaja Sahib (R.A) comprehended their inner feelings through Divine inspiration. So he along with his companions slipped from the hands of their enemies safely.
