Repentance of the ruler of Sabzawar: There was an extremely lush green orchard located in Sabzawar, a city of Iran. In the centre of the city was a stream of crystal clear water flowing with a beautiful reservoir centered in the orchard making it a luxurious landscape. The ruler of Sabzawar was also the owner of this orchard, he was a tyrant, ill-mannered and a rude person. It was part of his routine that whenever he would visit his orchard, he would cause terrible noises and annoyances while in the state of intoxication, due to consuming too much alcohol.
One day, Sayyiduna Khawaja Ghareeb Nawaz Sayyid Mu’eenuddeen Hasan Sanjari Chishti Ajmayri Happened to pass by this orchard; He took a ritual bath in that stream and began to perform two Rakaat Nawafil (supererogatory prayer). The guards informed him about the cruelty and severity of their ruler, thus, expressing their fear they requested him to leave lest the ruler may harm him. He stated, ‘ALLAH’ is my protector and custodian. In the meantime, the ruler of Sabzwar entered and headed towards the reservoir, only to find a mystic stranger (Sufi) at his place of luxury & pleasure. This threw him into a fit of rage, and before he could utter anything, the Eminent Khwaja Ghareeb Nawaz gave just fell unconscious. He took a handful of water from the reservoir and sprinkled it on the ruler’s face. The moment he regained consciousness, he immediately fell on his knees before Sauuiduna Khawaja Ghareeb Nawaz and wept bitterly, repenting for his sins; he thereafter took allegiance on the hands of Sayyiduna Khawaja Ghareeb Nawaz.
On the instruction of Khawaja Sahab, he returned all the wealth to their real owners that were extorted from them due to his cruelty and joined the blessed company of Khawaja Ghareeb Nawaz; He bestowed him with inner self-blessings & virtues in a very short span of time, also awarding him Khilaafah (spiritual succession) and then left that place.
