[Text and photos by Mayank Austen Soofi]
The Urs, or the death anniversary celebrations, of Bibi Zulekha, the mother of Delhi’s 14th century Sufi saint Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya, will be celebrated on April 22 and 23, that is on Sunday and Monday. Known as Mai Sahiba, her dargah lies in Adchini village, just behind IIT Delhi in south Delhi.
In Sufism, a saint’s death is not mourned, it is celebrated. Urs means “wedding” in Arabic and it symbolizes the union of the lover with the beloved, who is God.
Mai Sahiba died in 1250. She was buried in the house where she lived. During the Urs, expect crowd, qawwalis, prayers, besan rotis and biryani.

nice piece bhai…
i can not help but express that all religions are sham, mere superstition, an urge of week to seek answers from unknown where they lack “self”. Glorifying and perpetuating sham is fraud.
In marketing there are laws against exaggerated claim yet no such law against hyperbolic frad claims of religionists. Religion is about conditioning, condition people, to control, control is power.
Ok enough bhai … tu deep thinker hai, sensitive banda hai … andha dhundh mat lag spirituality ke piche … sare option explore kar… kitabe ekkathi na kar, padh bhi liya kar…he he he apna samj ke munh fat jat ne jadd diya 😛
Stay blessed and happy 🙂
