All recognized religions of the world
show that divine preaching and miracles have always been co-related
and all the prophet, Saints, messenger of God and founder of various
world religions were endorsed with supernatural powers to propagate
the divine message.
Gharib Nawaz (R.A) as one of the Wallie of Allah, was also endowed
with such "Supernatural powers to propagate the divine message
for this, I would say that his full life right from his birth till
death was full of miracles. He did whatever, he wanted and the almighty
always granted him blessing without any delay and if we discuss
in deep about his miracles this full website will get completed
in miracles only so I am writing few of his miracles.
Says Hazart Qutubuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki (R.A), " I never saw
Hazart Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A) angry with anyone as long as I
remained with him. One day, Hazart Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A) accompanied
me and a servant Shaikh Ali were going out. Suddenly a man caught
hold Shaikh Ali of his clothes and started abusing him. Hazart Khwaja
Gharib Nawaz (R.A) asked the reason of the dispute. He said "
Shaikh Ali is debtor and is not repaying the amount given to him."
Khwaja Sahib (R.A) said, "Leave him. He will repay your debt."
But the man again insisted. So Khwaja Sahib (R.A) got angry and
he spread his shawl on the ground and asked to take from the shawl
amount equal to the debt and warned not to take more than debt.
The man picked up the money certainly more than the debt and soon
his hand dried up. So he started crying and asked for mercy. Khwaja
Sahib (R.A) pardoned him and his hand recovered. The man immediately
became the disciple of Khwaja Sahib (R.A).
It said that once Khwaja Sahib (R.A) was passing through a Jungle,
some atheist dacoits came in his way. They used to snatch belonging
of travelers and if the traveler was a Muslim they used to kill
him as well. When these decoits faced Khwaja Sahib (R.A), there
happened a miracle, The band of decoits who had been engaged in
looting and killing the people, started trembling with fear, and
fell on the feet of Khwaja Sahib (R.A) and said, "we are your
slaves. Be kind to us" when they repented Khwaja Sahib (R.A)
made them recite Kalima and thus they accepted Islam. Khwaja Sahib
(R.A) forbade them for looting and murdering in the name of the
It is said –During his tour, Khwaja sahib (R.A), Ohududdin Kirmani
(R.A) and Shaikh Shahbudin(R.A) were sitting together at a place
and discussing some religious point of faith. Suddenly a young boy
with a bow and arrow in hand passed by Khwaja Sahib (R.A) saw him
and said, " The boy is the future king of Delhi."
And his prediction proved to be true and boy became the king of
Delhi with the name of king Shamsuddin Altamash and ruled the country
for about 26 years.
One day, a weeping old woman came to him and said, "Huzoor,
the ruler had killed my innocent son. For God sake, help me."
Hearing the woman, Khwaja Sahib (R.A) was moved very much. He with
his sceptre in his hand accompanied the old woman. Many followers
and disciples also accompanied him. He arrived at the dead body
of the boy, stood there silently and gazed at it for quite a long
time. Then he stepped towards the body, put his hand on It said,
" O boy, if you have been killed innocent, come to life by
the grace of ALLAH." He just completed his sentence, the boy
was alive. Khwaja Sahib (R.A) further said, " The man should
be so close to ALLAH that his prayers are to accepted without any
delay. If it is not, then he is not a Faqir."
Though Khwaja Sahib (R.A) had no means of income but he set up a
langerkhana ( alms- house). The food was so abundant there that
all the poor and needy of the city were fed with it. It is said
that he directed the Chief of the alms- house to demand as much
money as needed for the langarkana. The Chief used to come to him
daily in the morning. On his arrival Khwaja Sahib (R.A) used to
unfold the corner of his Musalla and asked him to take whatever
required from the hidden treasury. He himself used to keep fast
and broke it with the dried barley bread, weighing not more than
five misqal (few grms)
A man came to him with the bad intention of killing him and showed
great faith and loyalty to Khwaja Sahib (R.A). But his intention
was revealed to Khwaja Sahib (R.A). So he said, "I am here,
Do whatever you desire." Hearing this, the man started trembling
and with great humbleness he told that it was not his own desire.
Some other man wanted him to commit this heinous crime. Then he
took out the dagger, and placed it before Khwaja Sahib (R.A) and
asked for punishment. But Khwaja Sahib (R.A) said, " Revenge
is not the practice of the Saints. Well, I pardon you." The
man fell into the feet of Khwaja Sahib (R.A), repented, accepted
Islam and became a disciple.
It is said, during the period of Khwaja Sahib (R.A) stay in Ajmer,
the people from far and nearby, who went for the pilgrimage of Haj,
on return used to tell that they have seen Khwaja Sahib (R.A) circumambulating
the Khana-e-Kaaba; while in fact Khwaja Sahib (R.A) never want for
Haj after his stay in Ajmer.
Once, Hazrat Khwaja Qutubuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki (R.A) was meeting
with the king in the fort of Delhi. The other officials were also
present there. Suddenly a characterless woman came there and asked
justice. She requested the king to get her married, since she was
under the state of mental pain. The king asked her to whom she wanted
to be married, and which sort of agony she is facing, she said,
"The fellow who is very close to you and called himself as
Qutub has raped me. As a result I am pregnant. " Hearing the
entire episode, all those present were shocked . They pulled down
their heads with shame. Qutub Sahib (R.A) was also ashamed . He
could do nothing but he turned his face towards Ajmer and called
Khwaja Sahib (R.A) for his help. As and when Khwaja Sahib (R.A)
heard cry of his dear disciple for help, he immediately reached
there. He asked Qutub Sahib (R.A), "What is the matter ? Qutub
Sahab (R.A) could not speak a single word and tears started rolling
out of his eyes. The episode was revealed to Khwaja Sahib (R.A).
All this made Khwaja Sahib (R.A) very much angry. He turned to the
crooked lady and said " O child, inside womb, your mother has
alleged that Qutab Sahib (R.A) is your father. Tell whether it is
There was a clear voice, from inside the womb, heard by all present
there. The child said, The statement is all wrong. The woman is
a prostitute and has been sent by the enemies of Qutub Sahib (R.A)
to insult and defame him." All the people were much surprised
on hearing all about. The woman himself admitted her false allegation.
Khwaja Sahib (R.A) said, Only Allah can award honour and repute."
And then he returned. Except Hazrat Khwaja Qutubuddin Bakhtiyar
Kaki (R.A), all were much surprised on arrival and disappearance
of Khwaja Sahib (R.A).
It is said that one day, one of his disciples came to him. Khwaja
Sahib (R.A) was busy in offering prayers. When he finished his prayers
and turned to the disciple the disciple said "huzoor the ruler
of the city has ordered me to exile without any fault of mine. So
I am in great trouble." Khwaja Sahib (R.A) kept silence for
some time, then said, " Don’t worry he has been punished. "When
the disciple returned to the city, he heard the news that the ruler
fell from the back of the horse and has died.
One day, Khwaja Sahib (R.A) was sitting near Anna Sager, A shepherd
with some calves passed by, He said to the shepherd, " Dear
give me some milk. "The Shepherd took it as a joke and said
" Baba, they are calves and do not give milk. Khwaja Sahib
(R.A) smiled and pointed towards a female calf and said, "Brother,
I will take her milk." When the shepherd laughed, Khwaja Sahib
(R.A) insisted, "Just see". The shepherd was very much
surprised when he saw that her udders had become large and were
full of milk. So he milked the calf which was enough for 40 persons.
Seeing it, the Shepherd fell into the feet of Khwaja Sahib (R.A)
and became his disciple.
One day, Khwaja Sahib (R.A) was sitting among the disciples and
preaching. Suddenly he saw something on his right side. He stood
up as paying respect to somebody. It happened again and again as
and when he glanced towards right side. When the assembly was over
and people left away, one of his servants asked the reason as to
why he had been standing up repeatedly on having a look at right
side. Khwaja Sahib (R.A) said, "The Mazar of my Peer-o-Murshid
is located in that direction. As I looked towards that direction,
the Mazar came before my eyes, so I stood up to offer respect."
It was the assembly of the saints. Everyone of them agreed to show
his miracles. Thus Khwaja Usman Harooni (R.A) turned his Musallah
and took out some pieces of gold and gave them to a Durvesh and
asked him to bring some sweets for all present their. Shaikh Ohuddin
Kirmani (R.A) touched a piece of wood and it turned into gold.
When Khwaja Usman Harooni (R.A) insisted, Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A)
knew through Divine inspiration that one of the persons of the present
assembly is hungry but could not tell others because of modesty
. Thus Khwaja Sahib (R.A) took out four barley Rotis and put them
before the person.
The childhood of Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A) was full of miseries
and hardships. He spent his youth in search of knowledge and truth.
At the age of about 50 years, when he has almost settled in Ajmer
and the preaching services were on the top, he dreamt Prophet Mohammed
(S.A.W) who said," O Moinuddin! You have been very active in
obeying Allah’s orders but why didn’t you follow my sunnah.".
Thus , Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A) made two marriages, one after another.

of women to the righteous path. her mazar-e-mubarak is located just
near the mazar of Huzoor Gharib Nawaz (R.A).
With the beginning of 633 hijri, Gharib Nawaz (R.A)
knew as it was revealed to him that it was the last year of his
life. So he issued necessary instruction and prepared the will for
his desipels, awarded khilafat to the eligible and also invited

One day Khawaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A) was sitting in

suddenly he turned toward Shaikh Ali Sangar (R.A) and asked him
to write the order of the kilafat for Khawaja Qutubudin Bhakitiyar

Gharib Nawaz (R.A) handed him the Holy Quran, Carpet ,and the Sandles

Bhaktiyar Kaki (R.A),and looking towards the sky said "I HAVE
ENTRUSTED YOU TO ALLAH AND HAVE CAUSED YOU TO REACH THE PLASE OF

Then on 5th and 6th rajab Gharib Nawaz(R.A) entered
his cell and started reciting the Quran. through out the night the

opened the door and saw our Gharib Nawaz (R.A) had left for heavenly
