The master, Hz Khadim-e-Mohabbat, departed from this realm on the 12th of December 1988. Thus today is the twentieth anniversary of his passing. In accordance with sufi custom his Urs is celebrated every year at his tomb in Jhelum, Pakistan. What can a poor lowly beggar offer to a King? These words of Hz Mawlana Rumi (ra), to whom the master was much devoted convey something of that helplessness.
I stand at the door of mysteries
you are light
you are festival
you are fortune, God-confirmed
you’re the bird of Mount Sinai
I the wounded captive in your beak.
I can do no better than to remind myself and others of the teaching of the master which is summed up in these words of his: ” It is better to have knowledge of Love than to have love of knowledge”.
