With the beginning of 632 hijri, Gharib Nawaz (R.A) knew as it was
revealed to him that it was the last year of his life. So he issued
necessary instruction and prepared the will for his desciples, awarded
Khilafat to the eligible and also invited Khawaja Qutubuddin Bhaktiyar
Kaki (R.A) to Ajmer.
One day Khwaja
Gharib Nawaz (R.A) was sitting near his Hujra (cell for performing
prayers), his close disciples were also present their. suddenly
he turned toward Shaikh Ali Sanjar (R.A) and asked him to write
the order of the Khilafat for Khwaja Qutubudin Bakhtiyar Kaki (R.A)
and appoint him his Khalifa (descendent) after this Khawaja Gharib
Nawaz (R.A) handed him the Holy Quran, Carpet ,and the Sandles and
then said "know you this is the trust of the holy Prophet Mohammed
(S.A.W), Which has reached to me from my pir-o-murshid , I entrust
this to you after this he took the hands of Qutub-ud-din Bakhtiyar
Kaki (R.A),and looking towards the sky said:
HAVE ENTRUSTED YOU TO ALLAH AND HAVE CAUSED YOU TO REACH THE PHASE
OF HONOUR AND RESPECT ".
Then on 1st
rajab Gharib Nawaz(R.A) entered his cell and started reciting the
Holy Quran and performing Prayers. Through out the 5 Days the voice
was heard but in the morning of the 6th Rajab his voice was stopped
so the Khadim-e-Khas of Khwaja sahab our Jadd-e-Amjad Hazrat Khwaja
Syed Fakhruddin Gurdezi and other sufis who were present there opened
the door and saw our Gharib Nawaz (R.A) had left for heavenly abode

at the same pIace. His cousin Hazrat Khwaja Syed Fakhruddin Gurdezi(R.A)

to his shrine till he breathed his last.
The very same
night Qutubudin Bhaktiyar Kaki (R.A) saw in the dream the holy Prophet
(S.A.W) as saying
