Syedi Khoj bin Malak
(Q.S) mentioned in one of His 'Risa'alaa'(verses) that Syedna Dawood bin
Ajabshah (R.A) accompanied by Mansus Syedna Dawood bin Qutubshah (R.A)
reached Umreth by bullock-cart. The pomp with which they entered Umreth
can be gauged from the fact that twenty other bullock-carts followed
Syedna's. Cannons were fired in salutation, to honour and celebrate his
advent in the village. Syedna Dawood bin Ajabshah (R.A) stayed at Shaikh
Miyanji bin Taj's (Q.S) house. Hindus, Muslims, and members of other
communities flocked to pay their respect to Syedna. All were amazed on
observing the 'Noor'(radiance) emanating from Syedna Dawood bin Ajabshah
(R.A)'s countenance. The chief of the village came to pat respects to
Syedna Dawood bin Ajabshah (R.A) and exclaimed "I saw Rasulullah (S.A) in
my dream, my dream has come true, 'O Maula' your face closely resembles
the holy face of the Rasulullah (S.A)". The chief behaved like a humble
slave before Syedna. The Munafeqin were humiliated and the Mumineen were
proud to see their Dai being treated thus.
Syedna Dawood bin Ajabshah
(R.A) fell ill and predicted his own 'wafat'(day of death). The period of
His 'Dawat' lasted for 23 years which is the same as that of the period of
Dawat of Rasulullah (S.A).
Syedna Dawood bin Ajabshah (R.A) repeatedly
conferred Nass upon Syedna Dawood bin QutubShah (R.A). Syedna Dawood bin
Ajabshah (R.A) adhered to the will of Syedna Jalal (R.A) in respect of the
trust deposited in Him. Syedna Dawood bin Ajabshah (R.A) renewed His Nass
in the presence of Hudud on the 22nd of Rabi-Al-Akhar.
On the eve of
27th Rabi-Ul-Akhar in 997 AH, Syedna breathed his last.
Saifuddin (A.Q) refers to Syedna Dawood bin Ajabshah (R.A) in a Risaalaa
Sharifa as "Many miracles emanate from the 'Qabr'(tomb) Mubarak of Syedna
Dawood bin Ajabshah (R.A.)".
Mumineen inflicted with illness have been
cured due to the barakaat of his ziyaarat. Syedi Khoj bin Malak (Q.S)
asserts, "I did not have a son. I offered a Mannat that if Allah favours
me with a son, I shall visit the Qabr Mubarak of Maulana Dawood (R.A.) and
feed 1 mun (i.e. 40 Kgs.) of halwa to mumineen there. Allah favoured me
with two sons."
