Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Fakhruddin Muhib un Nabi Delhvi RA.
Is resting towards the west of the ancient mosque [masjid-e-kohna],and to the east
of the holy shrine of Hazrat Kaki RA. He was born in Aurangabad [now in Maharashtra].
His father Shaykh Nizamuddin Aurangabadi RA the caliph of Hazrat Shaykh Kalimullah
Shahjahanabadi RA, took his newborn son to his Shaykh. Shaykh Kalimullah was very
happy to see Shaykh Fakhruddin RA, out of his kurta make a kurta for the baby, and
give the baby the name Maulana Fakhruddin. When this baby was seven, he saw the
Prophet in his dream. The Prophet gave him five seeds of qahva. Surprisingly when
he woke up in the morning, he had these five seeds in his fist. He immediately informed
his father about the dream and this experience. He gave three seeds to his father
and ate two himself. He started ascending the spiritual stages speedily and stayed
He attained the spiritual perfection, and became a prominent personality in Delhi.
That building, which is now called Anglo Arabic Senior Secondary School, was Madrasa
Ghaziuddin and was the center of great religious and spiritual learning in his time.
He was the principal of the madrasa and was the authority in the shariat, tariqat,
marifat and haqeeqat. Still, he was simple in dress and outlook. However, was so
powerful spiritually that with a stare he was able to make person senseless. A person
Maulvi Mukarram was his opponent due to the samaa. One day he came in the mehfil
of samaa for the arguments.
Maulana Fakhruddin saw him with sharp staring eyes, and Maulvi Mukarram experienced
the state of ecstasy on his heart and started dancing. He became the disciple [mureed]
on the spot, abandoned the teaching profession, and started receiving the lessons
in Sufism. One day he in the state of deep love in front of his murshid said,
marduman be beened rahzan e duniya va qassaab-e-aashiqaan Fakhruddin raa ke ba yak
teer e nigaah ein maulvi muhtasib ra shaheed kard
(the men saw to the butcher of the lovers and decoit of the world Fakhruddin that
he martyred this investigator maulvi with his sharp penetrating sight). Moreover,
Maulana Fakhruddin was smiling while listening to these ecstatic words.
Another day Maulana Fakhruddin asked this mureed to teach the book on Arabic grammar
meezaanussarf to a boy of primary level. Maulvi Mukarram though he was an expert
on the subject found himself incapable of teaching the book and tried for two-three
days. The third day the boy read zarab zaydin umran, and asked the teacher why zayd
hit umar? Maulvi Mukarram said, "mashooqan deen aashiqan e be gunaah ra naa haq
mee zanand", In the religion of the love, the lovers do not kill the beloved without
reason. Then he threw away the book in a well. He also threw away his turban and
started dancing in the state of ecstasy. His murshid asked the reason for the state
of feelings. He replied, "agar mara bekusheed manzoorast wallah dimagh e taleem
dahi na-daaram" If you want to kill me by God I have lost my mind to teach.
Hazrat Maulana Fakhruddin RA is the great reformer [mujaddid] of the Nizamiya order.
Almost every line of the Chishtiya-Nizamiya order in India-Pakistan-Bangladesh is
greatly endowed and benefited by him. He tried to reform even the royal seat. Muhammad
Shah was the king of his time. He had Hindus as well as Shias as his disciples.
Hazrat Shah Abdul Aziz Muhaddith Dehlavi once objected on this aspect and he had
I take Hindus as my disciples for they enter the circle of the Unity [Vahdaniyat].
I take shias as my disciple for they abstain from the curse and melidiction [tabarra].

Fakhruddin RA. It is entitled Manaqib-e-Fakhriya. He writes,One day at the khanqah
of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya Mahboob-e-Ilahi RA in a mehfil-e-samaa some of the sufi
were in the state of ecstasy. One boy was also amongst them. By chance the qavval
changed the seat and samaa stopped for sometime. At that time that boy was lying
in the majlis silently. As the other attendants of the majlis paid attention to
the boy they found him dead. Respiration had stopped and body was cold. Father of
this boy was highly disturbed and he started crying and said:
Yak lab lal e tau sad jaan mni dehed
Khizr aasa aab e haywaan mi dehed
Murda gar baasham be aalam paak neest
Jaan be vasl e khweesh janaan mi dehed
