Pir Sayyid Jamat Ali Shah (ra)

Posted by Abd Al Mustafa on Thursday 8th November, 2007

He had a wonderful, awe-inspiring personality and was gentle and loving towards all, yet was afraid of no one when it came to defending the religion of Allah’s Messenger sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam; this is demonstrated by his leadership of the Muslims during the Shahid Ganj Mosque incident where the Shaykh led the opposition to the plans of the British rulers in Lahore as well as his refusal to pray behind the official Wahabi Imams in the Haramain appointed by King Saud and his refusal to visit the King when he was ordered to do so to explain: “I am a faqeer, he is a king” was his famous reply. In the end it was Saud who relented and allowed the Shaykh to pray by himself! He received medals from the Sultan of Ottoman Turkey for his services to Islam and for his amazing generosity in helping the people of Madina during a drought there for which he received the title “Abu’l Arab”………..more.
