Even Tsunami had no effect on Haji Ali Dargah, miracles galore

There are many miracles that have happened during the life of Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari (R.A.) and after his death. It is learnt from reliable sources that Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari (R.A.) was Qutub-E-Zamaan (Highest Saint of his times). Whatever is known about miracles is learnt from the caretakers and trustees from generation to generation as the Saint never married and has no descendents.

Haji ALiIt is learnt from rivayat (Legends) that Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari (R.A.) was sitting at some lone place and was busy in his prayers when one lady passed from there crying and screaming.

When Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari (R.A.) enquired about her crying she informed the him by pointing to an empty vessel and said that she had dropped some oil from the vessel and that if she goes home without the oil her cruel husband would treat her badly and that’s why she was crying in need of help. Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari (R.A.) asked her to be calm and went with her to the place where the oil had been dropped and then he took the vessel from her and pushed the earth with his thumb and the oil came out like a fountain and the vessel was full. The Saint gave her the vessel with oil and she went away happily.

Pothole story

During the monsoon season almost all the roads of Mumbai become rough and have potholes. The shore line along the Hornby Vellard (Lala Lajpat Rai Marg) has been damaged numerous times due to the fury of the seas but up till today the pathway of the Dargah has never been damaged or become unsafe for the people to reach the Dargah Sharief even though it is situated in the middle of the Sea. The pathway has been spared by the fury of the sea and the monsoons. This is one of the biggest miracles of the saint, hundreds of years after his death.

Storm of 1949

In 1949 there was a big storm in Mumbai, which had not spared a single building without damage, but there was no damage to the Dargah, Sanatorium or the Pathway. There were waves of the size of mountains (like Tsunami) and most of the people who were inside the Dargah Complex were scared that they would drown. The waves then bowed down at the wall of the Dargah as if in submission to the Saint and faded back into the ocean. At the time, Earthen Lamps (Chiraags) were seen floating on the crest of the waves which was witnessed by hundreds of people. The people then returned home safely, unhurt & unharmed and without any damage to their property.
