Located around 135 kms away from Jaipur, Rajasthan is the city of Ajmer. Ajmer is well known amongst the people of India as it houses the shrine of Sufi Saint Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti . Revered by people of all religions alike, the shrine is a major center of pilgrimage in India especially for the Muslims. People visit the shrine in the hopes of having their wishes fulfilled.
In spite of being a follower of Islam himself, Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti never tried to convert his followers who practiced religions.
He said “Let there be no compulsion in religion, Will thou complain men to become believers? No soul can believe but by the persuasion of Allah” He was compassionate towards people of all religions alike & all strata’s of society.
Because of his love for the poor & helpless Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti is also popularly called Garib Nawaz ( The one who shows kindness to the poor) Today many years post his death, his shrine is a place of great reverence for believers. Prayers are answered & miracles happen.
I have had the good fortune of visiting the shrine many times. I practice Hinduism, yet believe in the blessings of this great saint. If you are a person of faith, do visit this shrine, whenever you are in Rajasthan, India.
May the light of blessings of Khwaja Garib Nawaz always shine.
