Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alauddin Ali Ahmed Kaliyari also known as Sabir Kaliyari (The Patient Saint of Kaliyar) was a prominent South Asian Sufi Saint of Chishti Order in 13th century, a successor to Baba Fareed (1188-1280), and the first in the Sabiriya branch of Chishti Order. Today, his dargah (Sufi mausoleum) at Kaliyar village, near Haridwar, is one of the most revered shrine for Muslims in India, after Ajmer Sharif at Ajmer, Rajasthan, and is equally revered by Hindus and Muslims in South Asia. Hazrat Syed Alauddin Ali Ahmed Sabir Kaliyari was born in Kohtwaal, a town in the district of Multan in 19 Rabi' al-awwal, 592 Hijri (1196). He was the son of Jamila Khatun, who was the elder sister of Baba Fareed. After the death of his father, Syed Abul Rahim, his mother, brought hm to Pakpattan in 1204 to Baba Fareed. The story of his being given the title Sabir goes as follows: Baba Fareed's sister gave custody of Alauddin to him and asked him to take care of the boy, who later made him his disciple. Baba Fareed made him in charge of the langar (free kitchen for everyone to feed). After a very long time Alauddin's mother came to see him and found him very weak.show more
