ZILHAJ 26 - LAILATHUL EEMAN / LAILATHUL NAJATH

Birth Of Hazrat Bandagi Miyan Syed Shareef ‘Tashreef-e-Haq’RZ

His Birth:

He was a very pious and saintly personality and his birth was recorded as a blessing on the entire Daira of Hz Bandagi MiyanRZ, on this night 2 rakats of Prayers are offered every year, and the inmates of his Daira were blessed with his faiz before he passed away.

 

Hazrat Bandagi Miyan Syed Shareef TashrifullahRZ, was born on the night of 26th Zilhaj 926H. At the time of his birth his mother Bibi AishaRZ alias ‘Achcha Bibi Saheba RZ’ was in the 11th day of Starvation ‘Faqa'. There was not a single lamp or any oil available in the house of Saiyadush Shuhada Bandagi Miyan Hazrat Syed Khundmir RZ “Siddiq-e-Vilayath” (Murshid of more than 3,00,000 Mureed’s just only in Gujrath apart from other places) the Bibi’s of the Daira burnt dried leaves, twigs and dry grass to see the infant’s face and in that light the infant was shown to Hazrat Bandagi Miyan RZ. Here one can imagine how the Bibi’s practiced the ‘Pardah-Hijab” and spent their lives that until the delivery nobody from outside the Daira knew about it.


This is the same night of glad tidings Allah bestowed on Hazarat Bandagi Miyan RZ and on the inmates of the Daira, this incident is recorded in Hashia Insaf Namah by its author Hz Bandagi Miyan Valiji RA bin Yusuf RZ as follows:

It is narrated that Bandagi Miyan Syed Khundmir RZ  had severe pain in his stomach and eye while he was staying in Khanbel. Later in the night, he dreamt Allah Most High as commanding, "O Syed Khundmir, We have blessed you and all those staying in your daira tonight with coats (robes) of honour (khil'aten) and magnanimities (buzurgiyan) . Among the magnanimities is the one that We have also blessed your flesh, skin, bones and hair with (the loftiness) of perishing (fana) in Us." Next morning, when his sister Bibi Khunza Buwa RZ was grooming his hair. Bandagi Miyan Syed Khundmir RZ told her, "Give the glad tidings to all the brothers and sisters of the daira that Allah Most High had blessed them with lofty bounties and ask them to say two cycles (rak'aten) of thanks giving prayers." Then he called Bandagi Malik Ilahdad RZ and told him all the details of the great bounties that had been conferred on the inmates of the daira………………(truncated).


That night Allah SWT bestowed his fazal even on the unborn still developing in the mother’s womb. In the morning of 27th Hz Bandagi Miyan RZ informed his sister Bibi Khunza Buwa RZ and later Hz Bandagi Miyan RZ called his trusted Khalifa “Hz Khalifa Groh RZ” and said inform one and all in the Daira about the glad tidings of Allah, and from this night of event not only the Tashreefullahi’s but all those belonging in the lineage of Hz Bandagi Miyan RZ and the Murids of these lineage offer 2 rakats of thanks giving prayer in the night between 26th and 27th Zilhaj and seek His bounties for Eeman, Najath i.e the Deedar (without going in discussion what Ibadath to do in this night). That is why this celebrated night is also called LAILATHUL EEMAN / LAILATHUL NAJATH.

 

Hz Bandagi Miyan Syed Khundmir RZ has given many glad tidings in favour of Hz Miyan Syed Sharif RZ. The most distinct of them is that he called him ‘Tashrifullah / Tashreef-e-Haq’. He also initiated him into the Order of Hz Imam Mahdi al-Mau'ood AS. Later he joined the company of Hz Bandagi Malik Ilahdad RZ with the strict observance of the conditions laid down for the companionship of the truthfuls. After the death of Hz Bandagi Malik RZ, he did not abandon the company of his mentor, Hz Bandagi Miyan Syed Shihabuddin ‘Shihabul Haq RZ. He performed his duties of companionship with zest and sincerity. After him, he joined the companionship of Hz Bandagi Miyan Syed Mahmood ‘Syedanji Khatim-ul-Murshidee n’ RZ.

HIS PASSING AWAY:
At the time of his death it was exactly like that of his mother, he was in the state of starvation ‘Faqa from last 11 days and was in continueous fasting ‘Roza’ in that condition on the 11th Ramzan 988H, he breathed his last, before he passed away he did the distribution ‘saviath’ of his Faiz among the inmates of the daira.

His family:
Hz Bandagi Miyan Syed Sharif ‘Tashreefullah RZ had three sons and two daughters.

 

His first son was Hz Miyan Syed Sadullah RA, he was an eminent murshid of his day.

His second son was Miyan Syed Latif RA was a majzub [a Godly person absorbed in meditation]. He gave up his murshidi and remained in the company of his elder brother.

His third son Miyan Syed Abdul Wahab RA became an eminent murshid of his time. He remained in full emulation of his murshid and father in the highest standards of piety.

These three sons of Hz Bandagi Miyan Syed Tashreefullah RZ had a large number of descendants.

His first daughter was Bibi Syeda Ruqaiya RA who was married to Malik Piara RA, son of Malik Raja RA. His second daughter was Buwa Syeda Amat al-Karim RA who was married to Malik Salar Ahmad RA.
