Book Name:Shan e Usman e Ghani

besides this. I said: That is all my purpose and aim (i.e., your companionship in Jannah is enough for me). The Prophet of Rahmah صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said: ‘عِنِّيۡ عَلٰي نَفۡسِكَ بِكَثۡرَةِ السُّجُوۡدThen help me to achieve this for you by devoting yourself often to prostration (i.e., elevate your spiritual status, do not become negligent of abundance of worship over my bestowal with pride).

(Sahih Muslim, pp. 252, Hadees 489)


غم ہوگئے بے شُمار آقا!                         بندہ ترے نِثار آقا!

بگڑا جاتا ہے کھیل میرا                         آقا! آقا! سنوار آقا!

مجبور ہیں ہم تو کیا فکر ہے                    تم کو تو ہے اِختیار آقا!

میں دُور ہوں تم تو ہو مِرے پاس         سُن لو میری پُکار آقا!


صَلُّوۡا عَلَى الۡحَبِيۡب       صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلٰى مُحَمَّد

Disclosed whereabouts of his burial

Sayyiduna Imam Maalik رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has stated: Ameer-ul-Mu`mineen, Sayyiduna ‘Usman-e-Ghani رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ once visited that part of ‘Jannat-ul-Baqi’, the holy graveyard in Madina-tul-Munawwarah which is known as ‘Hash-e-Kaukab. He رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ stood over there at a spot and said, ‘A person will be buried here soon.’

Sometime later, he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ was martyred and the rebels created such a clamour and discord at his funeral that he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ could not be buried near the Grand Green Mausoleum (of the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم) nor in the cemetery of Jannat-ul-Baqi’ where the other Sahabah رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُم were buried; instead, he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ was buried at a place that lies afar and is known as ‘Hash-e-Kaukab.’ No one could even imagine [that he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ would be buried there] as no grave was present in that area [at that time].
