Sad Demise

 

Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) were taken seriously ill towards the end of their life. On the constant insistence of Mureeds, they went to Germany for Medical treatment. Receiving treatment for illnesses is a sunnat of the Holy Prophet(saw) so keeping this in mind, they travelled to Germany on the 10th of May 1991.  The reality was that ‘for the friends of Allah, there is no cure except meeting their Lord’. On the 7th of June 1991 (Friday, 23rd Zequad 1411 A.H) they met with their beloved lord.

The news came as a shock to everyone across the country and the rest of the world. who received this news, was in a state of immense grief and sorrow. His Eminence Pir Syed Khalid Ali Tahiri Qadri (the beloved Mureed and Khalifah of Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya ra) came on Television to break this sad news to the world. The next day, Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) arrived from Germany to Pakistan accompanied by His Holliness Pir al-Syed Mahmood Mohyuddin al-Gillani and His Holliness, Pir al-Syed Muhammad Ziauddin Al-Gillani from Germany. At Karachi Airport, Thousands of people including many Mashaikh and Ulama had gathered from across the country and were awaiting the arrival of Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra). His Eminence Pir Syed Khalid Ali Tahiri Qadri c Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) was then taken from the Airport to Al-Gillani House (Karachi) in a procession where thousands had gathered to catch a last glimpse of the Beloved Son of Hazoor Syedna Ghous e Azzam(ra) and the Ghous and Qutb of his time.  Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) was then taken to Nishtar Park; where tens of thousands of people read the first Namaz e Janazah. The Shezadgaan instructed Prof Dr Muhammad Tahir ul Qadri to lead the first Namaz-e-Janazah. From there, a special plane took Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) from Karachi International Airport to Lahore. A similar scene was experienced in Lahore where over 1.2 grief-stricken people had gathered. Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) was put on a special truck covered in flowers and the procession started from the Airport to the Shrine of Syedna Data Ali Hujveri (Data Darbar). Thousands of people followed took part in the procession and covered the entire route from the Airport to the Darbar Shareef. Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra)  would always hold Hazoor Syedna Data Ali Hujveri(ra) in high esteem and when their first arrived in Pakistan Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) completed a forty day Chillah at the Shrine. Whenever Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra)  visited Lahore, they would never leave without visiting the Shrine (Data Darbar) and their final journey was no different.

Namaz e Maghrib was read at the Darbar Shareef complex and then the last part of the procession was made till it reached its destination where the second Namaz e Janazah was performed by Justice Pir Karam Shah Al-Azhari (Bhera Shareef). After the second Namaz-e-Janazah, the burial finally took place in Baghdad Town (Township – Lahore) at 3 a.m in the morning. The actual burial was originally planned to take place in Baghdad Shareef, alongside the holy graves of the blessed Mashaikh of the Qadriah Silsilah. Due to circumstances at the time (current war), this could not take place. It was decided that the Burial would take place in Pakistan but the location was unclear until Hazrat Data Ganj Baksh Ali Hujveri(ra) instructed that Hazoor Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) be brought to Lahore and laid to rest  with them  in their city. A separate piece of land was allocated in Township, Lahore, which the Blessed Shezadgaan purchased. The Third Largest Itikaaf Gathering (after Makkah tul Mukurramah and Madinah Tul Munawwarah) is now held at this same location. 

During the day of the Janazah of Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra), they had a radiating smile that increased throughout the entire day to such an extent that the holy teeth Muburak of Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) were visible.  Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) comforted the grieved hearts of thousands of devotes and proved that Awliya do not die by opeing their EYES before their burial! (this was also recorded on video and witnessed by thousands on the day) .  

Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra) spent their full-time drowned in the love of Ghous-e-Azzam(ra) that even their Urs Muburak is combined with the Baree Gyarwain Shareef of Hazoor Syedna Ghous e Azzam(ra). Every Year, on the eleventh of Rabi us Sani a Grand Gyarwain Shareef is held at Darbar-e-Ghousia (Baghdad Town, Lahore) under the supervision of the princely sons of Hazoor Pir Syedna Qudwatul Awliya(ra). Tens of Thousands of people attend this grand event to receive the Spiritual Blessings of Hazoor Syedna Ghous-e-Azzam(ra)
