Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri visited the shrine of Hazrat Moin-ud-Din Chishti Ajmeri (R.A) in Ajmer Sharif yesterday and paid his respects there. Salman Chishti, the Khadim of the shrine, warmly received Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri along with the hundreds of pilgrims on his arrival. His ‘Dastar Bandi’ was done at the shrine and he was given traditional gifts on the occasion. The people were hugely ecstatic to find Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri among themselves. They chanted passionate slogans and eagerly shook hands with him.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said that Hazrat Khawaja Moin-ud-Din Chishti (R.A) was instrumental in spreading Islam in the sub-continent in general and Rajputana area in particular due to his spiritual blessings and religious services. He said that the number of those converting to Islam due to his human friendly conduct and love of humanity does not run into hundreds but hundreds of thousands. He said that the life of Hazrat Moin-ud-Din Chishti was a practical manifestation of piety, truthfulness, worship and cleanliness. He said that the revered saint neither had any army nor any wealth nor other resources but in spite of that he ruled over the hearts of millions of people.
Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said that Khawaja Moin-ud-Din Chishti (R.A) is among the blessed people of Allah whose shrine is a source of comfort to the people.

The PAT Chairman said that when one rises above one’s worldly interests, attractions and parochial associations, one becomes beloved of Allah and His creation. He said that there is a dire need of the fact that one enriches one’s life with the light of teachings of Khawaja Moin-ud-Din Chishti (R.A) without emphasizing his miracles. He also paid his respects at the shrine of Hazrat Khwaja Sayyid Muhammad Qutbuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki (R.A) in New Delhi.
