Dargah Sharif  -Daily Time Table


Every day a number of activities are performed by the Khuddam of Hazrat Khawaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A) at the Dargah. These

include Khidmat, Langer, Sama Qawwali and Quran recital.








This ceremony is performed twice,

once early in the morning about at

4.00 a.m. and other at 3.00 p.m.

with a slight difference.

In the morning it is performed for about an hour before the Fajar prayer. At this time, the main entrance of the Tomb is opened, by calling Azan.

At this point only Khadims are allowed to enter to perform khidmat.

In affect, khidmat means cleaning the

Holy Mazar and offering fresh flowers.

The second khidmat takes place at 3.00 p.m.

At this time, all pilgrims are permitted inside the Tomb except ladies.

Now apart from offering flowers, khadims recite Fateha and offer

sandalwood which is also distributed among the pilgrims.





Lighting (Roshnee)





Fifteen minutes before evening prayer the ritual of

Roshnee (lighting) takes place. It starts with khudam bringing candles

inside the Tomb with drums beating in the background.

Once inside, khadims place these candles in lamps and recite

some Persian verse. Finally the lamps are placed

in the four corners of the Holy Tomb and are lighted.







The Roshni Prayer in Persian





"Khwajae Khwajgaan Moinuddin Ashrafe Auliae Rooae Zamin

llahi Tabood Khursheed - 0 - Mahi Chirage Chishtiyaa Ra Roshnai"





Karka (Closing ceremony)





Karka is the closing ceremony of the Tomb which takes place

after an hour of Isha prayer. According to old custom,

about 20 minutes before closing the door,

when fifth part of the night passes,

a person calls to ring five, the clock sounds five times,

the devotees present inside the Tomb are requested

to go out of the Shrine. Then three khadims clean and sweep the

Tomb. After that they come out of the Tomb and the bell rings six times. Immediately after that Qawwals sing a special

song called `Karka’. After the song is over,

the entrance of the Tomb is closed.
