After spreading both Shariah and Tariqah for 40 years, the time had come when Ghouse-Ul-Azam, the Emperor of the Saints, the Pole of the world should, as per the promise of Allah Most High, pass through the doors of death and enter the presence of Allah Most High.
Two narrations have been mentioned in regard to the passing away of Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him).
The second one is the night of 10th Rab’ee Thani, 561 Hijri. or 1166 A.D.
His last rites were performed the same night. His eldest son Hadhrat Abdul Wahab (May Allah shower His mercy on him) lea the funeral Salaat of the Shaykh. The crowd was such that they had to close the door of the Madarsa, where the Shaykh was interred.
On every 11th, the kings and the elite of the city would offer their respects to Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him). They would congregate on the shrine of the Shaykh. They would recite the Holy Quran, recite poetry of the Shaykh without any musical instruments. After Salaat Ul Maghrib, all the disciples would sit around the grave and the leader of the group would stand and perform remembrance of Allah in a loud voice. Here, some people would be overcome with ecstasy. After this, whatever food or sweet was brought would be distributed among those present. The people would leave after offering the Salaat of Isha.
Gyarwhin Shareef is nothing but Isaal E Thawab (gifting of reward). The date for this has not been decided by the Shariah. It is up to the people. That is why, in the whole year, whenever the Ahle Sunnah perform any Isaale-E-Thawab, they call it Gyarwhin Shareef.
