Sufism In Sindh :: Ibrahimshahbangley

Hazrat Mohammed Ibrahim Shah- Bangley Dhareen (rahmatullah allaih)

This Sufi became sujjada nashin after their father Sufi Izzat ullah Shah alais Sakhi Pir. They were young at age and got married from family from Tajjal Sharif. Sufi Sadiq Shah of Aher took them to Tajjal Sharif asked for them hand in marriage but Tajjal Sharif family refused. Tajjal Sharif residents were not only mureeds of Sahib Karim but also cousins. After lot of pressure couldn’t sway the decision of Tajjal Sharif elders. Finally they gave warning “ you don’t understand I am here to give you harness of Dargah Jhoke Sharif. Rest is up to you”. Mian Sultan Ali Shah were aware of Fakir’s spirituality and agreed to give their daughter’s hand in marriage to Sufi Ibrahim Shah the fourth.

After Sahib Karim , Mian Zahid Shah became sujjada nashin and after that since they did not have heir gave rein of dargah Sharif to Sufi Abdul Sattar an elder from Tajjal Sharif .

Sahib Karim were young when their father passed away so they couldn’t take zikr from them so now they decided to take guidance from Sufi Sadiq Shah of Aher mureed of Sufi Fazal ullah Shah alais Datta Pir. When they mentioned of their intention Sufi Sadiq Shah started crying and said “ what ability do I have that I can offer Lords way.” But Sahib karim insisted and they finally said “ it’s your grandfather’s assets , its accessible for you”. Saying that showed Lord’s path.

This Sahib Karim were called ‘Bunglow Dhareen’. Because they always stayed inside a green bungalow in Lord’s endurance. Out of whole day they would come out only in afternoon. They were so much indulged in their endurance that when servants used to clean their pipe when they would come out, there would be blood on it.

Their living status was very humble, they were of great patience and content. What ever Lord provided , they would accept and live accordingly. As known their father were called ‘sakhi pir’, thay did not leave anything behind because of that they always were in tight state. They had two sons Sufi Zahid Shah and Sufi Juman Shah. For ten ten days some times they would be without earnings and would not have any thing in stock. Even all fukra would stay hungry, even in those times Sahib karim would tell fukra “ don’t keep utensils empty, even boil water in it.” So that when some one comes they should not know that fakir has nothing to eat, and mureed might bring something. Fakir used to follow up, and after meal time they used to take off the utensils. Once a fakir said why don’t you write to a mureed and borrow some grain , few days of hardship will relief. They answered in following verse:

Death is better then asking that takes away breath instantly. 
If you want peace don’t even drink borrowed water.


Some mureeds were so prosperous that they used to come on saddles made of gold , but those who seek Lord’s way prefer death to asking even for drink of water.

For talibs hunger is a gear of vehicle which will speedily take towards destination.

Their marvels were many but here only two are mentioned.

  1. One time they were traveling to Tajjal Sharif and the camels that were with them had silver nose rings. Incidently one camels nose ring got stuck, with Sahib Karim’s sword which was with jewels was used to cut the nose ring free, which after the nose ring was cut was left behind in sand. When Sahib Karim reached Tajjal Sharif they remembered it. That time there was a person named Anbh a fisher man sitting there, he came to Sahib Karim and said that knife is under the sand where the camel was if permission granted I can get it. And then immediately he took it out and in reward Sahib Karim gave some money and clothing and said ‘” you have crossed Thar you have two sons and a daughter but with blessing its been changed to son and that son will have black mark on side. With blessings of Lord he got three sons and sure enough one son had that black mark who was named Bahram and who used to raise cattle by rohr canal.
  2. One year it was Sahib Shaheed mela and they were sitting with fukra. That year it had not rained and all region was ruined.Fakirs requested “Qibla with out rain all is dried out, pray for us” They said the prayers, with blessings of all Lord mighty that night the sky got filled with clouds and that time they were sitting in raag with fukra, it rained so much that the water raised above the knees of those sitting there.

In the end they left this world 27th Ramazan 1369 Hijri , 1852 A.D Left behind son Mian Zahid Shah.
