Why Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah be well pleased with him) is also known as “Muhiyuddeen”
Hadhrat Ghouse-Ul-Azam (May Allah shower His mercy on him) himself describes the reason for this title. He says: I was coming to Baghdad barefooted that I met a person who was very weak and was on the very threshold of death. He addressed me by my name and asked me to come closer. When I went closer, he asked me to support him. Before my very eyes that person’s body started becoming healthy. His face became fresh and bright. I got frightened seeing this. He asked me: Do you know who I am? I expressed my lack of knowledge. He said: Anad Deen! I am the religion of Islam. I was near death. Allah Most High granted me life through you. I left that person and came to the grand mosque. Here a person met me and clutched my shoes and addressed me as “Ya Sayyidi Ya Muhiyuddin.” Then when I started praying, people came from all sides and started kissing my hands and addressing me as "Ya Muhiyuddin." Before this nobody had called me with this title.
