Williams Dalrymple travels to Bijapur to witness a miracle - Hindus and Muslims bowing down at the TOMB OF SUFI MYSTICS Hazrat Amin ud-din Ala
The shrine of the great Sufi, Hazrath Khwaja Ameen Uddin Ali (RA) Aala Sher-e-Khuda Chisty (RA), lies on the Shahpur hillock, two miles to the North of the great black walls of Bijapur, the most beautiful of medieval city states of the Indian Deccan.
The people who cannot afford medical treatment sometimes change of place and the spiritual atmosphere of the shrines will help them. Rather than suffering at home they come here. Other people with the same problems are here so they are not alone. And sometimes - just occasionally - Karamaths (Divinely Miracles) are witnessed here because Hazrath Khwaja Ameen Uddin Ali Chisty (RA) is very powerful in such cases. Both Hindus and Muslims find help here and revere him greatly."
There was a Hindu pilgrim from near Mysore who used to visit the Dargah often because Hazrath Khwaja Ameen Uddin Ali A'la Sher-e-Khuda Chisty (RA) saved his child and he narrates the incidents as quoted below.
"When our boy was an infant he became very ill," said the man. "No medicines from any doctor helped. We tried everything, but our son only got weaker. Then some neighbors said we should come here. We were desperate, so we got on a bus and brought the boy straight to the shrine. One of the pirs [guardians] cured him in a second. What could not be done in twelve months he did in a minute."
"The child was sick, and he was made right," said his wife. "So now we believe. Each year we come back to thank the Khwaja Saheb [ Hazrath Khwaja Ameen Uddin Ali Chsity (RA)], and to bring him our problems. Every year our wishes are fulfilled."
"Hazrath Khwaja Ameen Uddin Ali Chisty 'Ala Sher-e-Khuda' (RA) is still here," said her husband. "Many people see him in the crowd."
"Its true," said his wife. "Some see him sitting on his tomb, dressed in a white robe with an orange turban and a green scarf. Others see him walking around his shrine. To others still he appears in dreams.
"It depends on the intensity of your devotion," said the man. "But Hazrath Khwaja Ameen Uddin Ali Chisty (RA) looks after every one of his followers."
Hazrath Khwaja Ameen Uddin Ali Chisty (RA) lived in the early seventeenth century, Bijapur's Golden Age, when the city became a beacon of tolerance and learning that attracted scholars, artists and mystics from across India and the Middle East.
Relations between Hindus and Muslims had always been easier in the Deccan than in the more polarised North, and it had long been a Deccani tradition that every Muslim sultan should have a Hindu Chief Minister. But during the lifetime of the Hazrath Khwaja Ameen Uddin Ali Chisty (RA), under the rule of Sultan Ibrahim Adil Shah II, that tradition of tolerance and syncretism reached an astonishing climax.
This atmosphere of languid, courtly free thinking is reflected in the Bijapur School of miniatures which underwent its Renaissance under Ibrahim's patronage. In these wonderful otherworldly Images, water drips from fountains as courtesans as voluptuous as the nudes of South Indian stone sculpture attend bejewelled princes. There is a sense of timelessness and calm, of quiet abandon to the joys of love, qawwali and poetry.
The holy tomb of Hazrath Khwaja Ameen Uddin Ali Chisty (RA) - an exquisite jewel box of a building - lies within a low walled enclosure just beyond the black bastions of the Adil Shahi walls. Behind it lies open farmland, rich well watered black earth where bullocks plough fields edged in palm groves and mango and guava orchards.
There are no high rises, and from the roof of Ibrahim's tomb, the screen of trees shuts out the cars and roads and new villas, returning you instantly to the world of the Bijapur miniatures: of domes and palms and soaring palaces; of the Jama Masjid and the shrines of Bijapur's many Sayyad Sadaths and AwliyaALLAH.
All around the city fragments of this old courtly world survive almost completely intact, yet nowhere more so than at the shrine of Hazrath Khwaja Ameen Uddin Chisty (RA).
A farmer quotes the greatness of Hazrath Khwaja Ameen Uddin Ali Chisty (RA) as follow,
"We never have any trouble. We think all Gods are the same. Hazrath Khwaja Ameen Uddin Ali Chisty (RA) did not just welcome the Muslims but welcomes everyone." "There is one God only," agreed his wife. "We are friends with our Muslim brothers and we have faith in their saint. Most of the pilgrims who come here are Hindu." "We try to keep up this tradition," said one of the shrine's Muslim guardians who had walked up and was listening to what the woman had said. "As in the day of the Hazrath Khwaja Ameen Uddin Chisty (RA), no one is turned away but welcomes everyone. This has always been the tradition of this city."
