Resting at: Village Balawara Sharif, Tehsil Kotli Sattian, Ditrict Rawalpindi in Pakistan
Sufi-e-Basafa, Peer-e-Tariqat, Rahbar-e-Shariat, Mard-e-Qalander Qibla Hazrat Subedar Musanjaf Ali Sarkar (R.E)was born approximately in 1932 in village Balawara Sharif, Tehsil Kotli Sattian, Ditrict Rawalpindi in Pakistan. The name of the village Balawara Sharif is after the name of Qibla Hazrat Subedar Musanjaf Ali Sarkar’s (R.E) great-great grandfather Hazrat Balawal Khan (R.E) who was renown elder of the tribal family ‘Jamial.’
Qibla Hazrat Subedar Musanjaf Ali Sarkar (R.E) belongs to eminent Syed family and the family chain finally links to Hazrat Imam Hussain (E.S) through his grandmother.
Qibla Hazrat Subedar Sahib’s (R.E) whole life remained a mysterious secret. He worked through his worldly as well as spiritual life in an unbelievable and sophisticated fashion. He kept everything to himself and it sounds like he never let anyone come too close to him. Once he said to His disciples:
‘My life and spiritual position would always remain a secret.’ His (R.E) own Peer Sahib Hazrat Sufi Saddiquee-Akbar (R.E) said about him: ‘I know everyone’s spiritual status but only Allah would know His spiritual heights (Darajats).’
His mother’s name was Hazrat Bibi Ameer-un-Nisa (R.U) and His father’s name was Hazrat Meer Khan (R.E). His honourable grandfather’s name was Hazrat Jaffar Ali (R.E). He was considered to be one of the elders of the society and people use to get guidance from him in all kind of problems. It is being said that he used to have divine guidance from Allah and all of His predictions used to be very true. He was very well respected saint of His time. He was very charitable person and owned majority of land of his village Balawara Sharif. In his life he lended his land to the poor and needy people and never claimed it back.
His grandmother’s name was Syeda Hazrat Bibi Nawa (R.E). She was very pious and sanctimonious walliya and was very close to Allah. Once she woke up early in the morning to offer Tahajjut Namaz in Ramzan-ul-Mubarak and was making wouzu in a small spring near her house (The spring is still running in the basement of Astana Aliya Balawara Sharif) Suddenly She noticed that everything around her including the big tall trees have fallen in to a state of Sajda. Very quickly she realized that it was the moment of ‘Acceptance of Dua’ in the night of Qadr (Shab-e-Qadr). She immediately spread her hands and prayed to Allah to send a great Walli-Allah in her family who would be incomparable to his contempories. Her pray came true in form of descent of Qibla Hazrat Subedar Sahib (R.E). As it is being mentioned that her grandmother was very pious woman, he knew about the timings of her death and decided to spend last forty days of her life in isolation (Chillah) in Allah’s ibadat. She ordered not to let any male enter in her room during that time. As soon as she finished her day 40 in isolation she passed away. She was so close to Allah that He (J.J) had given her power to see the spirits/jinnat and often use to hit them with stick when they use to steal eatables from home. Qibla Subedar Sahib (R.E) grandfather and grandmother died before his birth. His respected mother left this world when He (R.E) was just approximately eight years old and father ascended to his creator when Qibla Hazrat Subedar Sahib (R.E) was in his teens.
Qibla Hazrat Sebedar Sahib (R.E) was born Walli-Allah. He was very different from his siblings and the other children of his age. He used to spend his time in solitude and isolation. He was very strict in offering his prays and other basic practices of Islam. He was very intelligent, spiritually motivated and perused his worldly as well as spiritual education with great zeal and zest.
Historically ‘‘Musanjaf’’ is the name of the Shield of Loin of Allah, The conqueror of the jew’s Khyber fort, The Chief Walli-allah inaugurated by Prophet Mohammed ﷺ personally, one and the only Haider-e-Karar Hazrat Ali-ul-Murtaza RU. Some people use to pronounce his name as Musajjaf but historically Musanjaf is widely and commonly accepted name. After He was exposed as a saint in public by Allah He (R.E) became famous with name of ‘‘Hazrat Qibla Subedar Sahib (R.E).’’ He took retirement from Pakistan Army at the rank of subedar-major after declining commission in the army. He achieved all the spiritual heights a saint can accomplish in his life. His spiritual flight was very high and he conquered all the spiritual pathways (Salooks) but abided by Naqshbandi, Qadri and Qalandri lines (Pathways).
He never liked these distinctions and honours to be a part of His (R.E) name due to his simplicity and humbleness. Hazrat Qibla Subedar Sahib’s (RE) peer e tariqat Hazrat Sufi Siddique-e-Akbar (R.E) whose real name was Hazrat Abdul Ghani (R.E) used to call Him ‘‘Sayein.’’ (Punjabi word used for a saint or a pious /virtuous person). After Qibla Hazrat Subedar Sahib’s (R.E) transfer to other world His murids (disciples) call Him ‘‘ Baree Sarkar’’ and ‘‘Baba Gee.’’
This was the part of his spiritual training by Allah. He had a lot of friends but never liked to hang around with them rather he use to spend that time in pursuit of spiritual mysteries of Allah. He used to wear neat and clean clothes right from childhood. He used to like white coloured clothes. As it has been mentioned earlier that Qibla Hazrat Subedar Sahib’s (RE) father and mother were also very virtious couple. In persuit of spirituality both mother and father had their own peers (Shaikhs) named as Hazrat Nishan Ali Shah (re) and Hazrat Sift Ali Shah (re) respectively. Both were distinguished saints of their time. Qibla Hazrat Subedar Sahib’s parents once invited both of their peers together at home. When they saw at Qibla Hazrat Sebedar Sahib (R.E), immediately predicted He (R.E) is going to be the greatest saints of his time. Both peers requested parents to make Qibla Subedar Sahib (R.E) their murid. Just to remind Hazrat Qiba Subedar Sahib RE was a toddler in those days and too young to have his say or opinion in this regard. His parents showed no objection but the problem started between the two peers. Both could not decide among each other whose murid he is going to be. After a long discussion and arguments both finally agreed to the term of conduct to decide who is going to be Qibla Hazrat Subedar Sahib’s (R.E) peer.
According to suggestion both would jump inside the Tanoor (fire place lit by wood and coal to cook food) and the person who would stay in the fire longer than the other would get the right to make Hazrat Qibla Subedar Sahib (R.E) his murid. His mother’s peer won the challenge. But Hazrat Qibla Subedar Sahib (RE) used to say that he is murid of Hazrat Peeran-e-Peer Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani RE. SILSALA-E-WALLIYAT The present pathway of walliyat towards the north of Pakistan came from India. From Hazrat Nizam-ud-din Ouliya it was transferred to Hazrat Peer Qasim Moharve (R.E) to Hazrat Peer Nazir Moharve to Hazrat Peer Sufi Sidique-e-Akbar (Peer Abdul Ghani RE).
The honourable and generous Hazrat Peer Sufi Siddique-e-Akbar RE put this Crown of Walliyat over the head of Qibla Hazrat Subedar Musanjaf Ali (R.E) who finally passed on to his most pious, virtous and ambitious son Hazrat Sahabzada Haq Khatteb Hussain Ali (M.E) who is presently reknown as ‘Qalander-e-Douran Haq Badshah Sarkar.’ His Holliness Qalander-e-Douran Haq Khatteb Hussain Ali Badshah Sarkar (M.E) is the most eminent living spiritual personality of today. His selfless and voluntary mission to alleviate the suffering of the poor, the distraught and the ailing people is very well known and deeply appreciated in religious, spiritual and the social circles both nationally and internationally. Most of the renowned saints of time regularly and frequently seek divine guidance and faiz from him.
