History

was born in Medina and accepted Islam in Mecca before the Hijrath of Prophet Muhammad.He belonged to the tribe of Al-Kajraj and his father was Yu-Aar. He is one among 313 Sahabas who participated in Jank-e-Badr (Badr War). He stayed in the world of Jinns (A'lam-ul-Jinn) to teach Jinns about Islam for five years, which was commanded by Prophet Muhammad. Before his visit to A'lam-ul-Jinn, he was gifted with a holy ring which was bearing "Asma-ul-Zalzalooth" by Prophet Muhammad and was said that it would be on his holy finger till the day of Qayamath, when he meets Prophet Muhammad in Mahshar Maidhan. He visited Asia continent during the time of Khilafath of Ameer-ul-M'umineen, Hazrath Umar Farook. The kingdom of Sindh was under the holy feet of Hazrat Thameemul Ansari for 18 years. He had instructed his disciples to cast his Janazah Mubarak (remains) into the sea after his death. After the last instructions from Syedina, Hazrath Thameem-ul-Ansari as stated above, his disciples did the same and it is said that the Janazah Mubarak was in the sea for about 5 years and it was guarded by the big fishes during this time. Eventually, one big fish brought the Janazah Mubarak nearer to sea shore of Kovalam.
It is also said that the Nawab of Wallajah, Nawab Muhammed Saadatullah Khan, had a dream in which Hazrat Syedina Thameemul Ansari requested him to proceed to Kovalam, where he would find the latter's Janazah Mubarak on Kovalam beach, and asked him to bury it there. When the Nawab reached the beach, he found the Janazah Mubarak and when he opened the same, he found the sacred body fresh along with some documents, which proved that he was Sahabi-e-Rasool Sallalahu Alaihi wa Sallam.

The Nooraniyyath reflected from the sacred face of Hazrat Syedina Thameemul Ansari touched the hearts of the all who participated in the funeral cermony. The Nawab duly buried the sacred body of this great Sahabi-e-Rasool Sallalahu Alaihi wa Sallam and built the Dargah Shareef at the site.
