Sufism In Sindh :: dhareen-badhshah

Sufi Salaamullah Shah (rahmatula alaih)

Thar Dhareen Bhadhshah
Tajjal Sharif

Famous quotation of Thar Dhareen Bhadhshah;"My Body Is There (at Dargah Jhoke Sharif),And My Spirits Are Here ( at Dargah Tajjal Sharif).

Shah Innayatulla Shaheed had three sons. Sufi Salamaullah being the youngest. At the time of the Shahadat of Shah Shaheed, Sufi Salamaullah were only six months old. The morning of Shahadat Shah Shaheed went to see their son, they placed turban on Sufi Salamullah and covered him with their godhari (piece of cloth carried over the shoulder), picked him up and Sufi Salaamullah Shah uttered thrice "Allah Allah Allah". Shah Shaheed walked out to Fakirs and said get Salaamullah married at young age.

After the Shahadat of Shah Shaheed their family took refuge at the relatives on mother's side and sometimes at some mureeds residence. When Sufi Salamullah returned back to Miranpur they were at the age of fifteen or sixteen. At that age started learning Arabic.

At dargah pak the mureeds and fakirs were very much indulged into zikr and fikr they were not aware when day turned into night, they would not sleep. One night Fakirs discussed, Hazrat Sufi Shah Shaheed had said, "The youngest son will be very spiritual fakir", but he is fifteen years old and we still see no sign of it. He sleeps all night; don't know when that saying will come true.

Sufi Salaamulla would apparently sleep all night but covered the paths, transcended all boundaries to spiritual heights. At that time Sufi Salaamullah had long beard and attired with noble clothes. Once a fakir after visiting mirapur met a spiritual desciple of Shah Shaheed namely Manghawal. This fakir gave all the details about Sufi Salamullah Shah as he apprarently saw it. Fakir Manhgawal was very disappointed and sent message to Sufi Salamullah Shah."You have distracted from your path" . As fakir delivered the message, Sufi Salamullah Shah cut his hair, burned his clothes and asked from fakirs at Dargah who is the most spiritual of Shah Shaheeds disciples. He was told Sufi Fakir Shah Abdul Latif from Thatta. So he proceeded towards him. "Tell me about all the paths my father showed you towards spirituality". Shah Abdul Latif said Sahib Karim had ordained for your marriage and then for you to walk the spiritual path. But Sufi Salamullah Shah did not agree and then Fakir Abdul Latif gave all the directions, which Sufi Salamullah transcended all within one night. Fakir Abdul Latif was amazed and said "what took us a lifetime to achieve you have conquered in one night. So the murshid that has granted you this level will also guide you. I do not have capabilities to guide you further". So Sufi Salamullah bid goodbye and returned back to Miranpur. Once they reached the gate, they looked west and said "no", then looked toward south and said "no". Then faced towards east and said "this direction is to go". So they headed east. They did not enter into the house nor greeted any relatives nor spoke to any fakirs; the fakirs saw they have returned a different personality. They all discussed and decided to follow Sufi Salamullah wherever he goes. One fakir, namely Ranwal, said "I start now with Sain, and leave the track marks, pack as much food and necessities as you can and follow the track marks. Wherever Sain stops we will stay there. Bring some food for Sain also". So the other fakirs followed the instructions and Ranwal fakir trailed after Sufi Salamullah. Sufi Salaamullah kept walking without any food or water. Wherever fakirs would stop or break for food, they would fall behind in the trail, and then try to quickly catch up. They were helping Ranwal with food but Sufi Salamullah didn't even go near the essence of food. They finally stopped at a desert mound named Darawari, which is 32 kilometers from Tajjal Sharif. All the fakirs stayed there also, they spent 12 years at that desert mound. The necessities that the fakirs brought along did last long, for fakirs to survive without food and water was very difficult. They appealed to Sufi Salamullah to find a way,so Sufi Salamullah told them go dig into the roots of Kharir (a tree); so they did and discovered coins of gold. Which they took to a nearby village sold it and bought food and necessities, even the gold coins were gone in some time. Now again the fakirs appealed to Sufi Salamullah to find a way. Sufi Salamullah told them gather leaves of Akh (a type of tree). When fakir gathered the leaves, Sufi Salamullah covered it with a sheet and asked fakirs to put their hands in it and pull out rotis (bread). So the fakirs were pulling out hot rotis, once done when they removed the sheet cover, underneath were the remaining leaves. Sufi Salamullah instructed them to put petals of flowers in a pot and burn fire underneath, when done, fakir found a pot full of hot rice which they ate and satisfied their appetite. For water Sufi Salamullah directed them to 'Foog’ (a tree), fakirs would only dig a little and find abundance of water to quench their thirst. When their clothes got dirty they went to Sufi Salamullah again, Sufi Salamullah said pile your dirty clothes and burn them. As fakirs had seen so many miracles they had full faith and followed exactly the instructions, they burned their clothes. Sufi Salamullah covered the ashes with their sheet; next morning told fakirs go get their clothes. Each fakir pulled out his clothes from underneath the sheet all professionally washed and pressed. All this Sufi Salamullah did for his fakirs who voluntarily stayed with Sufi Salamullah in the desert but they themselves never touched the food or the water in those 12 years. They stayed at the mound day and night; very rarely they would raise their head to even look up.

Today at that mound there is memoir built of Thar Dhareen Badhshah. Their urs is celebrated every year Zilhaj 25th-27th at dargah in Tajjal Sharif.
