HAZRAT SYED KHWAJA HASAN BARHANA SHAH SAHEB a.k.a BARHANA SHAH SAHEB belongs to Sadat (descendant of the holy prophet through his daughter Hazrat Fatima). He was born in 1119 Hizri in Iraq but came to India. Upon reaching Delhi he became devotee of Hazrat Sufi Sarmast and also got caliphate from him. He used to live a simple life and wear no cloths due to which he was known as Barhana Sahab.
He arrived in the Deccan (South India) in the reign of Sultan Abdullah,utub Shah of Golconda kingdom. He settled down four miles away on the eastern side of Hyderabad city where at present his holy mausoleum is situated.
He was alive at the time of arrival of Hazrat Yousuf Sahib and Sharif Sahib to Hyderabad. When Aurangzeb's army marched from the tank Bund to the fort of Golconda two great, Qutubs (highest cadre in spiritual pivot) Hazrat Yousuf Sahib and Sharif Sahib were also part of the army. While the army was passing by Barhana Sahab’s neighborhood, he asked for a piece of cloth from one of his disciples and covered himself. The moment army passed by he returned the piece of cloth. People were astonished by his behavior and out of curiosity his disciple asked him the reason behind such an action. He replied there were two human beings in the army of animals thus I had to cover myself, otherwise why should I be ashamed in front of animals. His disciple didn’t understand so he asked him to put his head under his armpit and then look at the army, the disciple also saw only two human beings and all others looked animals.
At the age of 72 years he left the world in the year 1191 Hijri at 1 A.M.
