Abdul Qadir Hakimuddin
Who is Abdul Qadir Hakimuddin?
Saiyedi Abdul Qadir Hakimuddin is the holy dawoodi bohra saint who is buried in Burhanpur, India. His grave is visited by pilgrims from all over the world. The tomb complex 'Dargah-e-Hakimi' includes mosques, gardens, and international class accommodation facilities for visitors.
He was presented the status of ‘Haddiyat’ by 36th Dai Syedna Kalimuddin . He was made Mukasir Al Dawat by Syedna Noor Mohammed Nooruddin and further elevated to the status of Mawazeen Al Dawat by 38 th Dai Syedna Ismail Badruddin.
The 17th-century saint was known for his piety, humility and extreme eruditeness. A Hafiz-e-Koran since childhood, his recitation of the Koran could mesmerise any living being. Legend has it that one day while travelling through a forest, he was reciting the Koran when a tiger walked by. The animal sat before the scholar, and quietly walked away once the recitation was over. When Syedi Hakimudin died in 1730 AD, his enemies exhumed his body on some pretext after 22 days, but found to their shock a fresh and fragrant body. Over the years, people's faith grew in Syedi Hakimuddin's miraculous powers. The word hakim denotes a healer and thousands of Bohras flock to his shrine, taking a mannat for shifa from disease and seeking restoration of the health of both the body and the soul. As in Ajmer, it is said that whoever comes here with a prayer on her/his lips, does not go away disappointed. Those who have their prayers answered, their sick loved ones cured, their sinking businesses nursed back to health, and their other problems solved, come back with a generous offering.
