Additional Info

One day khwaja was on his way bare footed on a sunny day. One cobbler was working on the road side. He saw that khwaja was walking bare footed so he thought of making a pair of shoes and made it with his skin cut from his thigh. Seeing this khwaja was pleased and asked whatever he wanted should be given to him. Cobbler asked for the right to cover the first gilaaf sharif (a pure curtain present by devotees to the saint) on khwaja's urus till the day of judgement. khwaja agreed and till now tradition is continued.
