  • Haji Ali Mosque Mumbai
    This mosque houses the tomb of Hazarath Haji Ali, a Muslim Sufi saint. There are a number of stories related to the life of Hazarath Haji Ali and about how this tomb came to be built. One version claims that Haji Ali was a rich local merchant who gave up his worldly possessions after a visit to Mecca and took to meditating. Another story is that Haji Ali was an Afghan mystic who lived and meditated, on the island on which the shrine now stands. It is said that he left instructions that after death, his body should be put in a casket and should be cast off into the sea off the shore of what is today Pakistan. Legend has it that the casket with his body in it emerged in perfect condition in the place where the tomb is today. According to another story Haji Ali was on a pilgrimage to Mecca and he died on the way. His body was put into a casket and disposed off at sea. It is said that this casket floated back to Mumbai; though some believe that Haji Ali drowned at the spot where the dargah is today.

    The dargah was built in 1431. The tomb is on a small islet just off the coast of Worli in Mumbai. It is about 500 yards from the coast, in the middle in the sea. There is a walkway that connects the shrine to the shore. This walkway is accessible only in low tide. During high tide and in the monsoons the shrine is completely cut off from the shore. The structure of the dargah is like other Muslim mausoleums in India. The structure is white with domes and minarets like the Mughal architecture. The dargah is a renowned pilgrimage site among the Muslims. Non-Muslims are also allowed to visit the dargah. Inside the dargah the tomb is covered with a red and green brocade chaddar(sheet) and an exquisite silver frame supports it. The tomb has a courtyard that normally has a festive atmosphere. The main hall has pillars on which the ninety-nine names of Allah are written. The whitewashed structure attracts visitors in large numbers on Thursdays and Fridays. This shrine is thronged by Hindu and Muslim devotees alike.

  • Situated at the end of a 500m causeway protruding into the Arabian Sea is the whitewashed Haji Ali Mosque, containing the tomb of a Muslim saint Haji Ali who is believed to have meditated on these very shores. It is said that Haji Ali was a wealthy Muslim merchant who renounced all his worldly belongings before embarking on a pilgrimage to Mecca. He died in Mecca and the casket miraculously drifted and came to the spot where the mosque and tomb were built by his devotes in the early 19th century. The Mosque lies opposite to the famous Mahalakshmi temple and can be approached from Lala Rajpatrai Marg.

    Haji Ali is a handsome example of Islamic architecture standing on an island. In fact, this holy place is visited by many devotees as well as visitors who are attracted by the beauty of the site. The widespread belief is that whoever prays to the deity here is never disappointed. A number of pilgrims come here for thanksgiving. Haji Ali's sister also followed her brother's footsteps and became his companion in ascetic suffering. There is a mausoleum built for her a little distance away on Worli Bay.

    The mosque has a narrow concrete pathway about a kilometer built over water to reach the shrine and can only be reached at low tide. The walkway is lined with pitiful wailing beggars. A short flight of marble steps leads into the dargah where the body of the saint is enclosed in a semi-circled tomb,in an exquisite silver frame engraved with all the ninety-nine names of Allah. The top of the tomb is covered with a zari cloth and flowers and other offerings by devotees lie scattered around the tomb. The devotees pray and touch their heads and lips to the cloth. Ladies, as is the case in all mosques, have a separate room for prayers. All visitors need to remove their shoes before entering the shrine.

    During high tide the walkway to the mosque is submerged in the sea making the impression that the mosque and the tomb are floating in water. Check the tide times in the local paper before visiting.

    The courtyard of the mosque is surrounded by refreshment stalls and other kinds of shops which take away the solemnity of the place. Haji Ali is dargah is an integral part of Mumbai’s heritage and Indian culture. The rocks exposed at low tide behind the mosque are a favourite spot if you are interested in catch sea breezes. The best time to visit is on Friday or on Thursday evenings.

  • The whitewashed Haji Ali Mosque, containing the tomb of the Muslim saint Haji Ali, sits at the end of a long causeway protruding into the Arabian Sea off the coast of Mumbai. The causeway is unprotected, so the thousands who make the pilgrimage to the mosque each week can only do so at low tide.

  • Miracles of Piya Haji Ali
    posted in hajiali, History, Mosque, Dargah, Miracles of Piya Haji Ali |
    Miracles of the Saint : There are many miracles that have happened during the life of Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari {R.A} and after his death. It is a belief of the Muslims as mentioned in the Quran Sheriff that the Holy Saints who sacrifice and devoted their lives in the way of Allah never die and one should not call them dead. They are alive in the graves and get their food and necessities from Allah.

    It is learnt from reliable sources that Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari {R.A} was Qutub-E-Akbar. Whatever is known about miracles is learnt from the caretakers and trustees from generation as the Saint had never married and had no descendents. Some people tried to display themselves as his descendants or heirs and have destroyed the exact history of the saint, his tomb and Dargah.

    Oil and the Lady : It is learnt from rivayat {being told by the people} that Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari {R.A} was sitting at some lone place and was busy in his prayers when one lady passed from there crying and screaming. When the Saint enquired about her crying she told the Saint by pointing to an empty vessel and said that she had dropped some oil from the vessel and that if she goes home without the oil her cruel husband would treat her badly and that’s why she was crying in need of help. The Saint asked her to be calm and went with her to the place where the oil had been dropped and then he took the vessel from her and pushed the earth with his thumb and the oil came out like a fountain and the vessel was full. The Saint gave her the vessel with oil and she went away happily. But at the same time the earth told the Saint that he had pushed it and had given it trouble and some day when he would be buried it might take revenge of this. The Saint then realized that he had committed a mistake and from that day he became very serious and was not keeping well.

    The Pathway : Before his death he advised his followers that they should not burry Him at any proper place or graveyard and should drop his coffin that it should be buried by the people where and when it is found so that is why his tomb is in the middle of the sea where some stones over a small mountain were lying above the sea. The present chairman informs it and managing trustee, Mr. A. S. Merchant that earlier there was no pathway in the sea and people collected stones and made a temporary path during low tide. During high tide however the path was destroyed. In 1944 his father Mohammad Haji Aboobakar who was appointed trustee by The Attorney General, Goverment of Bombay had decided to build a permanent pathway but he was hesitant as he was not sure if the path would withstand the sea fury during the monsoon season almost all the roads of Mumbai become rough and have potholes but till today the pathway of the Dargah has never been damaged or unsafe for the people to reach the Dargah Sheriff. This is one of the biggest miracles of the saint hundreds of years after his death.

    Miracles of the Dargah : In 1949 there was a big storm in Mumbai, which had not left a single building without the slightest damage, but there was no damage to the Dargah, sanatorium or the pathway. There were waves of the size of mountain and most people were scared that they would drown. They then bowed down at the wall of the Dargah, said their prayer and there was lightening on the waves and the people returned home without any harm to themselves or to their property.

    It is learned from the thousands of visitors and devotees who have visited the tomb of the Saint that with proper faith and belief they have achieved whatever they have had asked for from the Saint blessings.

    During the heavy rains on 26th July 2005 there was a huge destruction over most of the part of Mumbai but the Haji Ali Dargah was not affected  by this incident.

  • Mother of Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia


    This is the short life history of Mother of Great Hazrat Khwaja Sayed Nizamuddin Aulia.

    Her Holiness was the daughter of Hazrat Khwaja Syed Arab Bukhari (R.A). She was highly respected and loveable mother of His Holiness, Mehboob-e-Elahi. She was educated, courageous, religious minded and absolutely punctual of Namaz, Roza, Ibadat (prayer’s) and strong belief in Almighty Allah Tala (God). She was a source of strength, peace and patience. Her Holiness life was full of miracles (divine graces). God listened to her immediately! In ‘Siyar-ul-Auliya’ His Holiness Sultan-ul-Mashaikh said that whatever his mother wished to do, (even before thinking about it, she dreamt of it) Allah Tala (God) fulfilled her wishes. His Holiness says that whenever she wanted any thing, she recited five hundred times Darood Sharif and her wish were fulfilled immediately.

    Once her maid servant ran away from her house, no one was there for doing her house hold work. She was totally upset! She put Musalla (prayers rugs) on the floor and started praying without covering her head and said "Oh, Allah Tala, I will not cover my head with Dupatta if you don’t send the maidservant at once!" She immediately heard a mysterious voice that some one is saying that we have arrested the maidservant and is at your door. His son (Mehboob-e-Elahi) hands over the maidservant to her.

    Once she dreamt and` heard a mysterious voice, asking her to select either the husband or the son. She selected her son Sultan-ul-Mashaikh. She did not disclose the dream but took extraordinary care and affection of her husband.

    His Holiness Sultan-ul-Mashaikh was impressed by his mother’s miracles. She knew her death time. It was the last day of the month of Jamadiul Sani, His Holiness came to see her and after kissing her mother’s feet, he saw tears in her mother’s eyes. He enquired and she said with affection:

    "Ah, my son to whom you will greet
    on the next moon of the month"?
    His Holiness was taken aback and started weeping! He fell on to her feet and cried, "Makhdooma on to whom you are bestowing your son"? The mother said, "my son, come in the morning to listen and stay tonight at Hazrat Shaikh Najeebuddin Muta wakkil’s (R.A) house."

    His Holiness could not sleep and was restless the whole night. Before the dawn, the maidservant came running to His Holiness that Mai Saheba is calling you. His Holiness at once rushed and fell on her mother’s feet. She raised His Holiness right hand and said to Almighty Allah Tala (God):

    "Allah Tala, you’re the creator of all creations, I am entrusting my innocent son to you. You are the Savior, the Sustainer!"
    and she took her last breath!


    His Holiness in loving memory and worship of his mother said:

    "If my mother had left behind me heaps of wealth and riches of the world, it would have been nothing. But what she has bestowed me with a never ending intangible treasure that has made me the richest in both the words".
    She died on 30th of Jamadiul Awwal and lies buried in the house of Bibi Noor and Bibi Hoor, in which she used to live – in the neighbourhood of Hazrat Shaikh Najibuddin Mutawakkil (R.A). Hazrat Bibi Noor and Hazrat Bibi Hoor had great love and affection to Mai Saheba and are also buried in the same house. One day Bibi Noor and Bibi Hoor asked Her Holiness Mai Saheba that who will remember us. Her Holiness Mai Saheba said that this Dargah Sharif will be remembered as Dargah Bibi Noor, Bibi Hoor and my generation will remember you at the time of Urs Sharif (annual anniversary). This has come true since then. Men and women of all caste, creed and religion visit this Holy Shrine.

    His Holiness used to visit this Holy Shrine of his mother every Wednesday and also on the 29th of every month of Islamic Calendar for the Ziarat. People who are suffering or having difficulties in life go this Holy Shrine of Her Holiness Hazrat Mai Saheba and pray to Almight Allah Tala (God). Their prayers are accepted and wishes fulfilled. She is a benevolent mother. She showers blessings to all the people who come at her Holy Shrine, every day. Special prayers after sunset are held on every Wednesday and 29th of every month of Islamic Calendar at her Holy Shrine at Adchini, next of NCERT, Opposite Sarvodya Enclave,
    New Delhi-17.
