Saadatullah Khan, had a dream in which Hazrat Syedina Thameemul Ansari (Rizwan
Allahi Tha'alahi Alaihim Ajmaeen) requested him to proceed to Kovalam, where he
would find the latter's Janazah Mubarak on Kovalam beach, and asked him to bury
it there. When the Nawab reached the beach, he found the Janazah Mubarak and when
he opened the same, he found the sacred body fresh along with some documents,
which proved that he was Sahabi-e-Rasool Sallalahu Alaihi wa Sallam.
Nooraniyyath reflected from the sacred face of Hazrat Syedina Thameemul Ansari
(Rizwan Allahi Tha'alahi Alaihim Ajmaeen) touched the hearts of the all who participated

Even many people do not know the importance of this Sahaba but they can realise
a wide spread network and greatness of this Sahaba only when they visit and spend
their time in Kasargod shareef. It is observed that there is some great spiritual
connection between Kasargod shareef and the Ullal Dargah of Syedina Hazrath Shareef-ul-Madni

30-km from Cuddalore. It has a glorious historical background. It is an important
pilgrimage centre for Muslims. Parangipettai is also well known for its unique
and divesified Muslim population. It is ironic that Parangipettai still remains
as a town in Tamilnadu, as it has seen arrival of wealth and different people
even before the dawn of globalisation. Muslims in Parangipettai have an unique
origin. Muslims in Parangipettai can trace their origin to several destinations,
particularly the Middle East and North India. There are also different Muslim
groups in Parangipettai, particularly the Maraicars and Sahibs
