The shrine Sajada Nisheen Syed Masood Hamdani of Nishat who is said to have given a fresh look to the shrine while speaking on the occasion said Hazrat Meer Syed Taj-ud-Din Hussaini Hamdani (RA) was a famous saint, scholar, and religious leader of 8th century (Hijri).
Syed Hussain Hamdani of Khanqah-e-Shokhta Nawakadal, a descendant of the saint said: “Hazrat (RA) was born in Hamdan (Iran). He migrated to Kashmir with his family including his wife and son Syed Hassan Badhur popularly known as Rustum-e-Hind (Hero of India).”
“That time Kashmiri people knew them as Hamdan citizens so people called them Hamdani,” said Syed Ashfaq Hamdani of Lal Bazar.
Meanwhile Bazme-Sadaat-e-Hamdani has felicitated the devotees on the occasion.
