Biography of Sayyid Jama'at Ali Shah (r.a)1841-1951 Part 6

Pilgrimages to Mecca & Madinah.(Hajj wa Ziarah):
Sayyid Jama'at Ali Shah (r.a) performed his first Hajj in 1310 Hijra.He performed so many Hajj during his lifetime that it is difficult to count.If somebody would ask him about numbers of time he performed Hajj. He will answar "I perform Hajj for Allah's pleasure and not to keep count.I will go whenever Allah Taala calls me and love & affinity of Prophet (saws)takes me there."
Sudden Decision to go for Hajj:Once in a gathering (Majlis)in Qasur someone read this couplet:
Daboya Muj Ko Himmat nay,Nah Pohncha Ha'ye Taiba Tak--
Yeh Jhota Dam Muhabbat Ka "Madina Arzoo Darum"
I did not reach Madinah because my will failed me.
This is a false claim of love that "I wish to be in Madinah".
Haji Buta Dervish was asked to pack the bags and leave from Qasur.He requested to go home (Alipur Sharif) first to get money and needed suuplies.Hazrat qouted this Punjabi Couplet: Pallay Kharch Naheen Bandhatay Panchi tay Dervish--
Jinnahan Taqwa Rab Da, Ounahan Rizq Hamaish
Birds and Dervish do not carry sustenance with them --
The people with Taqwa of Allah (Trust in God) are always provided.
We are guests of Allah.Let us go today"He left Qasur via Bombay for Hajj.
