MANO YA NA MANO on STAR ONE
Amroha is the shrine of Sharfuddin Shah Wilayat,
popularly known as Dada Shahwilayat to the inhabitants
of Amroha. There is a reason behind this familiar
address, ('Dada' means 'paternal grandfather') as
the people of Amroha are all descendents of Shahwilayat.
The Saint is widely known for the deadly black scorpions,
which could kill at the slightest provocation, which
guard his shrine.
Scorpion on my Hand at the Dargah Shariff
visitor to the shrine can handle these venomous creatures
without getting hurt, and if they wish, they can ask
permission from Dada Shahwilayat and fix a specific
date on which the scorpion will be returned.
The scorpion will not sting, until the taker oversteps
the due date and doesn't return it back to the shrine.
Then there is the tree, which metes out justice.
Gate Dargah Shahwillayat
Criminals were hung in its gnarled branches, while
the innocents were pardoned. Of course, when we mention
the shrine of Dada Shahwilayat, one cannot forget
his sister, Daadi Bakhoee.
lady was to be married to a prince, but when she realized
that her family couldn't match the earthly splendor
of that of the prince, she prayed to God to be taken
away. Legend has it that the earth opened up and embraced
this daughter, leaving a tiny piece of here braid
sticking out of the ground.
thence a tree grew, it branches entwined like that
of a braid, bearing sugarcoated fruits, which can
be plucked from the branches even today.
Tradition :: In the spiritual town Amroha,
the great historical Dargah of Hazrath Shahwilayat,A
famous live-miracle of scorpio is still a witness
of the spiritual status of Hazrat Sharfuddin Shah
Willayat in the form of a change of nature of an insect
(scorpio/snake) on his shrine. Everybody knows that
stinging is the nature of a scorpion. But in the premises
of the shrine of Hazrat Shah Willayat, no scorpion
stings, no matter if it was used to sting before.
Even people can take it for a defined period of time
and it will not bite for that duration even if it
is away from the shrine
This change of behaviour of insect is attributed to
the spiritual status and highness of Shah Willayat.
A tradition says that when Shah Willayat (ra) arrived
in Amroha, the sufi of the nearby area, Hazrat Khwaja
Geso Daraaz Rehmatullah Aleh sent him a kooza (cup)
full of water, hinting the satiation of this place
in spirituality due to his presence. Hazrat Shah Willayat
smiled and put a rose on the water of that bowl and
returned it back.
Other mazar at Shah Wilayat
In this metaphorical communication, it was meant to suggest
his status as a rose in the so-called 'spiritually saturated'
Amroha. In response, the learned sufi Geso Daraaz exclaimed
that on your shrine there will be scorpions. Shah Willayat
replied 'yes, but they won't sting'. And on your shrine there
will be donkeys.' Which Geso Daraaz replied saying 'yes, but
they won't desecrate the place by their refuse'.
Wall which started walking on the orders of Shahwilayat
sahab and now is
known as the Horse of Shah Vilayat Sahab
is mazaar of Khwaja Nasruddin Sahab in Amroha where
animals dont shit and it is the farmaan of Buzurg
that if any persons livestock is lost he can come
to the mazaar and by gods will he will find that animal
