Hazrat Syed Miran Hussain Zanjani R.A

 Lahore,Punjab, Pakistan


Syed Miran Hussain Zanjani was born in year 958 AD (or 347 AH) in Zanjan, Iran. He was a follower of Hazrat Sheikh Abu al Fazal Khatil and came to Lahore around 998 AD (or 387 AH) on his master’s advice. Syed Hussain Zanjani lived in Lahore for over 36-37 years and during this period thousands embraced Islam due to his preaching.

According to a narration Hussain Zanjani and Syed Ali Hujweri (Data Ganj Baksh) were disciples of the same teacher, Hazrat Sheikh Abu al Fazal Khatil. First Syed Miran Hussain Zanjani was sent to Lahore and later on when Syed Ali Hujweri's spiritual education was completed he was also asked by his spiritual master to go to Lahore. Syed Ali Hujweri asked his master why he is being asked to go to Lahore when Syed Miran Hussain Zanjani is already there. His master replied " HE only knows HIS secrets"

The day Ali Hujweri entered Lahore the funeral of Hussain Zanjani was being taken to graveyard and Hazrat Data Sahib led the funeral prayer. This tradition is based on the story related by Nizamud Din Auliya in “Fuwaid-al-Fuwad”. But some historians proved this to be historically untrue, because Hussain Zanjani lived in Lahore during the early part of the seventh century (A.H.) when he met Muinudin Chishti who came to visit Ali Hujweri’s tomb, and according to tradition spent forty nights there for spiritual illumination. According to Dara Shikoh, Muinudin and Hussain Zanjani met and enjoyed each other’s company.

Hazrat Syed Meeran Hussain Zanjani died in 1042 AD (or 431 AH). His shrine is located in Chah Meeran in Lahore. It was once situated in a beautiful garden known after his name but the garden has disappeared due to the ravages of time.
