Peer Syed Mahmood ul Hassan Shah Khaki (D.B.Q) famous as Mastwaar Qalandar born in Chakwal and started spreading LOVE through his “Mohabbat Mission International” for all the people in the world. According to him, this mission is the mission of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) and he is preaching it to every one. He is here to remind people a promise which they made to Allah Almighty in the Alam-e-Arwaah.
Qalandar Peer Syed Mahmood-ul-Hassan Shah Khaki is also renowned as ‘Mastwaar Qalandar’. It would be quite interesting to know that his family in Kashmir was also known as ‘Matto’ family. In Kashmir it means a family of those who are ‘Mast’, spiritually so much absorbed in Allah Almighty that they lost their own existence and became one with Him. Therefore, in Punjabi, used in the suburbs of Chakwal, ‘Mastwaar’ also means the same as ‘Matto’. Like his father he is Hassani Hussaini’ Syed, the line of Hazrat Ali (R.A).
Hazrat Da’ood Shah Khaki was a great saint in his line, twelve generations back to him. He was ‘Qazi-ul-Qaza’, the Chief Justice of Kashmir, in his times. He was also called “Abu Hanifa Sani”, second Abu Haneefa, because of his sagacity and profundity in Islamic-legal matters. By the spiritual inspirations of Hazrat Makhdoom Hamza Kashmiri, the 7th ‘Sultan ul Arfeen’, he resorted to ‘Tasawwuf’, a spiritual practice to seek love of Allah Almighty. Under his spiritual supervision he observed a ‘Chilla’, a spiritual exercise to seek the love of Allah Almighty. He kept himself almost buried alive in a grave type of trench for four and half years. Thus, he become one with the dust. Hence, he received the tittle of Khaki, the one who has become one with the dust, by his spiritual guide and teacher Hazrat Makhdoom Hamza. Since, then all the saints that succeeded him in his line were also called ‘Khaki’.
Before the birth of Syed Mahmood-ul-Hassan Shah, Hazrat Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jillani (R.A) foretold his father, Syed Rasool Shah Khaki, in a dream that “My beloved Mahmood is coming to you”. Similarly, Syed Abdul Lateef, renowned as Imam Bari, also paid a spiritual visit in his father’s dream and not only told him about the birth of Syed Mahmood-ul-Hassan but also suggested his name – Mahmood-ul-Hassan. Syed Rasool Shah Khaki (R.A) himself told his wife that they were going to have such a son as would have the spiritual capabilities of seven Auliya, saints. Besides, Syed Rasool Shah Khaki (R.A) added, that he would have seven stamps engraved on his body at the time of his birth. Consequently, on his birth Syed Mahmood-ul-Hassan Shah had those stamps on his body.
He is brought up under the strict supervision of his father in a completely religious atmosphere. Not only he has received education up to Graduation but also received proper religious education in a Madrasa of Kanpur. Besides, a series of marvels, as reported by his parents, friends and his town-men, emanated from him. In short, when Syed Rasool Shah Khaki passed away in 1994, he took up the seat and duty of his father on 3rd November in a religious ceremony also attended by Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri. Since then he has devoted himself for the teachings and preaching of Islam and the betterment of mankind through his unbound love and affection. Besides, he is an ingenious poet and author of many books as well.
