Hazrath Sayed Akmal Hussain r.a. Urf - Baba Maan
He came from yemen - he was the prince of yemen, but he do not like to live like that.. he goes to forest and pray alone... One day he finally leave the house and came to find out the right path
He came in india... in gujarat.... in panchmahal district there is a mount named PAVAGADH, he came there. he saw people who came from top of the mount and buy there regulard need and goes to top again. he asked one person that who are you and where you live ? he answer that i m murid of SADAN SHAH SARMAST (sadan shah sarmat have khilafat of SHAH BADIUDDIN ZINDA SHAH MADAR - MAKANPURI U.P.) and our pir lives on the top of the mount. we are here for buy food and other thigs of need.
Babamad also join them and reach to the mount pavagadh. He request to sadan shah sarmast to accept as murid... Sadan shah sarmast tell him that you first join my murid and help them in their work.
After some time he make him murid. all murid have their work which is given by pir.. babaman have work to carry the meal for pir.. everday he carry the meal for pir... pir take some and remain some and give it to babaman.. but babaman does not eat the food but take it to the place where he pray in small cave on the mount and put in one corner. this is the regular scene at there. one day pir sadan shah sarmast tell to babaman (saiyed akmal husain) that 'aklam husain i think we should have to invite the people who lives near mount for daawat (reception)'. babaman replys that ok pir as you wish. invitation given to all the people. on the day of reception other murid did not saw any preparation for meal. they asked to babaman that 'do you have prepared the food for invity'. babaman replied that 'yes i have' and last pir told him that akmal husain lets start to serve the food... babaman goes to the place where he prayes daily in alone and where he collect the remaining food which was given by their pir o murshid.. on that food he always put a cloth.. he pray salat and pray to allah that 'o best provider, i dont have anything but your faith and i beleive in your faith, please handle this occasion with your karam' after saying this he put the hand under the cloth of food and take fresh food from it and put in plate.. this process ramain continue untill all the people have taken the meal... after this pir o murshid call to babaman and give him khilafat...
He came vadodara form pavagadh (panchmal) and stay there. he spread his faith to the people of city.
There is one live karamt on the shrine of babaman - on the top of the gumbad of mazar there is one kalash, in which people fill the fresh milk - this is done on the day or sandal. and put the kalash again on the top of the gumbad. after 1 year on the same day (sandal day) people collect the kalash.... the milk which wass filled before one year... i fresh.. like on the day when filled...........
