All Information About hazrat Data Ganj Bakhsh & Data Darbar Lahore
Abul Hassan Ali Ibn Usman al-Jullabi al-Hajvery al-Ghaznawi or Abul Hassan Ali Hajvery (sometimes spelled Hujwiri), also known as Data Ganj Bakhsh or Data Sahib, was a Persian Sufi saint and scholar during the 11th century. He significantly contributed to the spreading of Islam in South Asia. Born around 990 CE in Ghazni, Afghanistan during reign of the Ghaznavid Empire and died in Lahore (in present day Punjab, Pakistan) in 1077 CE. His most famous work is The Kashf Al Mahjub (“Unveiling the Veiled”) written in Persian language. The work, which is one of the earliest and most respected treatises of Sufism, debates Sufi doctrines of the past. Hujwiri belonged to the Junaidia school of Sufism, founded by Junaid Baghdadi, a major Sufi saint of Baghdad. Hajwiri is also viewed as an important intercessor for many Sufis. Hazrat Moinuddin Chishti Ajmeri, a chief saint of the Chishti silisilah, stated that an aspiring murid (disciple) one who does not (yet) have a murshid (spiritual master), should read Hazrat Ali Hujwairi’s book Kashf al-Mahjub, as that would be (temporarily) enough for his spiritual guidance.
