My Host Peersaab Fakhru Miya Hujra No 6 Ajmer Sharif .. 2013, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

Ever since I first visited Ajmer in 2005 at the invitation of Peersaab Fakhru Miya Lion Of Ajmer I have been staying at his house partaking of his humble hospitality and his love for this beggar poet of Mumbai.

Peersaab Fakhru Miya is an eminent Islamic scholar lover of Ahle Bayt and firm believer of the Shohadas of Karbala .

He is a pucca Hussaini and holds Hazrat Abbas in the highest esteem.. perhaps it was this powerful current that bought us together and has kept us bound forever.

He is sincere devotee of Khwajah Garib Nawaz who was the greatest lover of Hussain.. no doubt about that ...

Shah ast Hussain, Badshah ast Hussain
Deen ast Hussain, Deen Panah ast Hussain
Sardad na dad dast, dar dast-e-yazeed,
Haqaa key binaey La ila ast Hussain

His sons Farid Miya and Qambar Miya are the pillars of his heritage and both have been as hospitable to me as their father.

Peersaabs Murids …

plot ..
on the backs

not a golden
pot ..unliving
moments
that hope

the call
of the muezzin
within earshot

they have nothing
only misery remorse
despondency to share
unwashed clothes

in an eternal snare
hopelessly without
prayer .. lice infested
uncombed unkempt
disheveled hair
peripheral participants
of ajmers spiritual fair
begging for alms
at the market square

the cosmic wheel of life weeps
man mans greatest enemy
godliness a commodity cheap
the unborn child your ill begotten gains
does not want to reap ..
from his mothers womb shudders
peeps into the covers creeps
no he does not want your world
as blood from the umbilical cord seeps

a world
with eyes
silently
gone
blind
tears
on the
soul
of my

the curse
of mankind
an elusive god

shrine ,,or
in any given
space defined
god is on facebook
god is on twitter
god is new bottle
old vintage wine
god is the internet
god is a page
that cannot be
displayed online
