Shah-e-Hamdan (RA) Urs observed

THOUSANDS THRONG SHRINE, OFFER PRAYERS

SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI

Srinagar, Oct 23: The annual Urs of Hazat Mir Syed Ali Hamdani (RA) popularly known as Shah-e-Hamdan was observed at Khanqah -e-Moula in Shaher-e-Khaas Tuesday with religious fervor and enthusiasm.
 Thousands of devotees thronged the shrine where they recited verses of Holy Quran, which was followed by Duaiya Majalis. A nocturnal Shab was also observed at the shrine in connection with the Urs observed on 6 Zul Hijjah annually.
 J&K Jamiat-e-Himayat-ul-Islam Chief Patron, Moulana Showkat Hussain Keng threw light on the life and achievements of Hazrat Mir Syed Ali Hamdani (RA) while the Jamiat-e-Himayat-ul-Islam Patron Moulana Khursheed Kanoongo also addressed the people.
 “The world famed handicrafts which Kashmir is known for world over are the outcome of Shah-e-Hamdan(RA)’s contribution in making people learn the skills. Had he not introduced the skills, Kashmir would never be famed for the able hands,” Kanoongo said while talking to Greater Kashmir on the sidelines of the event. 
 Mirwaiz Moulana Riyaz Ahmad Hamdani in his address hoped that teachings of Shah-e-Hamdan (RA) shall remain alive for all times to come.
 Given the erratic power supply to the old City, the Power Development Department had provided a generator for supply to the shrine during the cuts.
 70-year-old Muhammad Farooq of Kupwara, a devotee said: “I have been visiting the shrine since my childhood when I would come with my father.” “But over the years facilities haven’t been improved much because unlike other shrines there is no Sarai where people  like me could stay,” he said.
