Syedi AbdulQader Hakimuddin
Wafaat : 5th
Shawaal, 1142 H. Urs day also commemorated on 27th Shawaal each year.
Abdulqadar Hakimuddin (A.Q) was privileged to be a descendent from a
family of virtuous saints. He was born in 1142 H corresponding to 1730AD
during the time of Syedna Ismail Badruddin II (R.A) and had the honour to
serve five Duat Kiram (R.A). Syedi Abdulqadar Hakimuddin (A.Q) authored a
vast treasure of Kutub-ud-Dawat (religious texts) and wrote thousands of
poetic verses in praise of Ahle Bait (S.A). Amongst the numerous
beneficial traditions and benevolent rituals that he established,
Sabil-ul-Khaire-wal-Barakaat, which is a collection of nominal sums from
Mumineen to spend on their welfare is one of them.
as it was, some foes of Dawat with deceitful of intentions approached the
local authorities and unjustly complained the burial of Syedi Abdulqadar
Hakimuddin (A.Q) to be conducted in contrast to principles of Shariat.
This eventuated to a forceful digging of Syedi Abdulqadar Hakimuddin's
(A.Q) Qabar Mubarak (grave) by the authorities even as Mumineens' pleas
were deliberately unheeded. One and all witnessed Syedi Abdulqadar
Hakimuddin's (A.Q) miraculously composed posture even after twenty-one
days in Qabar Mubarak. A fragrance of musk emanated from him. Mumineen
once again, buried him a little further away from where his initial Qabar
Mubarak was on 27th Shavvalul Mukarram. Apparently, Mumineen therefore
observe Urs Mubarak (death anniversary) of Syedi Abdulqadar Hakimuddin's
(A.Q) twice during the year.
he was by name and virtue, many a person procured physical solace and
spiritual enlightenment from his teachings and guidance. Even today,
hundreds of thousands gather at his Roza Mubarak to fulfil their hopes and
aspirations and never return disappointed.
