Hazrat Shaikh Khwaja Syed Muhammad Nizamuddin Auliya

Delhi,Delhi, India

History

Hazrat Khawaja Nizamuddin Auliya (1238 - 1325 AD) also known as Hazrat Nizamuddin, was a famous Sufi saint of the Chishti Order in India. He was born in Badayun (east of Delhi), though he later settled in Delhi. Nizamuddin lived at various places in Delhi, before finally settling down in Ghiyaspur, a neighbourhood in Delhi undisturbed by the noise and hustle of city life. He built his Khanqah here, a place where people from all walks of life were fed, where he imparted spiritual education to others and he had his own quarters. Before long, the Khanqah became a place thronged with all kinds of people, rich and poor alike.

Many of his disciples achieved spiritual height, including Shaikh Nasiruddin Muhammad Chirag-e-Delhi and Amir Khusro. He died on the morning of 3 April 1325. His shrine is visited by people of all faiths, through the year, though it becomes a place for special congregation during the death anniversaries, or Urs, of Nizamuddin Auliya and Amir Khusro who is also buried at the Nizamuddin Dargah
