HISTORY OF SYEDI ABDULQADIR HAKIMUDDIN MAULA
In the line of saints, Syedi Abdulqadir Hakimuddin Saheb (QR) was born in Rampura on November 10, 1666 (14 Jamadal Ulaa 1077H). Bawa Mulla Khan Saheb was the name of his father. A person of outstanding caliber and values, Syedi Hakimuddin Saheb demonstrated exemplary kindness, humility, liberality, and charity. In the Khidmat (Service) of Dawat (Spiritual office) and Mumineen(The Plural Of Moumin; Believer), he enjoyed extraordinary standing (true believer). He gave all of his profits to the advancement of the Deen (religious welfare) and the path of Allah.
He consistently observed the five times of Namaz, one of Islam’s seven pillars and a fundamental part of the faith. People of all faiths flocked to him for advice because of his piety and intelligence. He may be described as the embodiment (avatar) of mankind.
In his early years, he memorized the Quran in its entirety. His reading of the Quran mesmerized the audience and even attracted the wild animals, which surrounded him while he read. He was a man of letters who, as a talented author and poet, contributed much to Dawat’s literature. He produced historical writings in Arabic, Persian, Urdu, and Sanskrit.
He had a tradition of photocopying holy literature. Two copies of each Dawat Book were in his extensive library, one of which he gave to the present-reigning Daai (the head of the Dawoodi Bohra Sect) and the other of which he maintained for his personal use in passing on knowledge. He would go to one of the societies where Dawoodi Bohras lived every Friday to find out what was going on in the neighborhood. Numerous customs and activities for personal and societal welfare developed by him.
He was living in Ujjain and had been given the position of deputy head of the Dawoodi Bohra community by the current Daai.His daily schedule was very structured. Prayers in the Masjid in the morning are followed by recitation of the Quran with and by the community members as they come by chance, while simultaneously correcting any errors they may have made. In the Bohra community, this noble custom is still practiced today under the amended name “DAUR” (recitation in turn).
Following the Daur, Syedi Hakimuddin Saheb shared information on Deen (Sabaq) and finished the first half of the day by speaking with people who needed his help and counsel. This pattern persisted even in the afternoon after the Masjid’s noontime prayers, which were followed by Sabaq (educational lessons) until the next prayer time and then Sabaq once more. He ate his meals according to a set routine and at the same times every day.
He used to have his first meal four hours after sunrise and his second meal two hours after dusk (sunset), both with a prearranged nap in between. After giving up his midnight prayers, he resumed writing books till daybreak as part of his routine and continued living a planned and predetermined life.
About two and a half centuries ago, the Syed Abdulqadir Hakimuddin (QR) Mausoleum was initially constructed. As a modest tribute to the noblest, Syedi Hakimuddin Saheb, the 52nd al-Dai al Fatemi Dr. Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin Saheb (RA) requested that the Roza be renovated and beautified without altering the fundamental original design of the edifice in 1405 H (1985 AD).
In 1729 A.D. (1142 Hijri), Syedi Abdulqadir Hakimuddin Saheb (QR) traveled neighborhood of Burhanpur to preach Islam. To the very end, he gave service to the neighbourhood. He was a highly intelligent individual for his period. On Friday, November 25, 1729, A.D., he died at the age of 65. (1142 H, 5th Shawwal).
He gained notoriety as Hakimuddin, and rightfully so, as he was a healer thanks to his devotion to spirituality and religion and a source of consolation for the oppressed. Even today, hundreds of pious people visit his Dargah in search of healing for their bodies, minds, and souls by making Mannat (Vows) for “Shifa” from illness. It is stated that anyone who enters this place with a prayer on their lips leaves without being let down.
