from Punishment of Grave
Hazrat Sayyed-e-na Khwaja Gharib Nawaz went to
attend the funeral of one of his disciples. After performing the funeral prayers
He lowered him into the grave with His hands. Hazrat Sayyed-e-na Bakhtiyaar Kaaki
says that after the burial almost everyone left, but Huzoor Khwaja Gharib Nawaz
remained sitting at his grave. Suddenly, He became sad. After sometime He said
(all praise be to Allah) and became satisfied. On my request He said that the
angels of punishment came to my disciple on which I became worried.
Meanwhile, my mentor Hazrat Sayyed-e-na Khwaja Usman Harooni came and recommended
for him in from of the angels, 'O, angels! This person is a disciple of my disciple,
Moinuddin leave him. The angels said that he was a very big sinner. This conversation
was going on that a voice was heard saying,
"O angels we have pardoned
this disciple of Moinuddin Chisty for the sake of Usman for Harooni.":
Dear Islamic Brethren!
From this incident a lesson is learnt that we should become a disciple
of some perfect mentor, since because of him the punishment of the
grave can be refrained.
