Lahore – A visit to Bibi Pak Daman

Guest post by Destitute Rebel
The city of Lahore in Pakistan is known for its rich culture, Forts & Grand Mosques, its food and music are world famous, Also famous are the sufi saints who hailed from this city or came here to live and were burried here, among the more famous shrines of Lahore are Data Darbar the Shrine of Hazrat Ali Hajweri Syed Abul Hassan Bin Usman Bin Ali Al-Hajweri the famous Sufi saint of Persian origion, The shrine of Gamey Shah, The tomb of Baba Shah Jamal and Bibi Pak Daman.Although I’m not very religious I decided to go visit Bibi Pak Daman as the legend behind this particular shrine was quite interesting. Bibi Pak Daman is famous for being the shrine of 6 Ladies from the household of the Prophet Mohammed, Including Ruqayah binte Ali the daughter of Hazrat Ali the forth caliph of Islam the othe five graves are said to be those of hazrat Muslim bin Aqeel’s sisters and daughters. Legend has it that these ladies were traveling alone after the events at karbala and when the reached Lahore the ruler at that time tried to arrest them because the were gaining a following and not wanting that, Bibi Pak Daman prayed to God and asked him to open the earth and take them in, when the soldiers came to arrest them the earth split into two and they went in only a little of the Dupatta (scarf) of Bibi Ruqayah remained and when the lead soldier tried to get hold of that it too slid into the soil, Thus the name Bibi Pak Daman meaning even the scarf of the lady was pure and thus could not be touched.

The Mazar is the end to a busy and colorfull street full of shops selling religious literature, multimedia and prayer beads among other things

  2. Hi there,

    Lahore is a no doubt worth seeing place. A great place to hang out. A great place to have to have fun. Its food or kit-flying, Its crazy racing on the roads, or its clothing, Its dating or dining out. You will no doubt, never find out a place like Lahore. Lahori’s are no doubt known the “Alive Heart People” and they really do add all their energies to prove.

    If you are an out-lander, You are helped, cared, guided, and this all happens for free. Even you are provided food, accomodation, etc.

    Visiting Minaret Pakistan, Badshahi Mosque, Lahore Zoo, The Mall road, The hall road, The DHA (Defence Housing Authority), The johar town, The model town, and all areas of Lahore will let you believe, Lahori’s are alive.

    The wall city (The old city Lahore), is very facinating, the thin streets, but very cooperative people will remind you the 13’th century. The carvings on the walls, the written jokes, the photos and all.

    Long Live Lahore. Also if you are traveling down to the Pakistan, or any other parts of world (hospitalityclub) may help You, As this club offers you all in free. Accomodation, Food, Assistance, and all. Try this, You will like it.

    All the best all readers. In my next post, I will send some photos, etc to better understand Lahore and Its people, food, and clothing and whole lota more.

    Regards

  3. i just came back from Lahore, i last went there 15 years ago, and boy has it changed.
    i was lucky enough to see Bibi Pak daman. it is a must see for the lovers of the Ahlul bait.
    Make sure u take a pad lock there, so you can tie it up when making a wish.
    it was a amazing feeling being in the presence of Imam Ali’s Daughter.
    I brought many items from the stalls outside the main building. you can buy many items from books, jewellry and even rose petals.
    i wish to return again.
    Wa’alaikum alsam

  5. Truly amazing – I went to Bibi Pak daman to pray for my sister and was very touched by the audience at the Mazar and as I was walking out I could see a sense of satisfaction on the faces of the crowd and deep inside I had the same feeling.
    May allah and the Imans help and guide us

  28. Dear All, (SHIA & SUNNI)
    First of all i would like to ask all of you how you peoples accept the history. If some one type ans print some fack letrature then can you peoples were blindely accepts these printed papers as history or if some peoples like Zakirs Or Molvi which are planted by international community given some fack comments than what is the critaria for us to judge whther they caliming on members are true or false??
    Seocdly i confidednlty given you all the profe that when i was young and almost 20 year of age a Goldsmith Baba Jee written a Book and claimed that he saw in dream (Ilham) that these BIBI’s are belong’s to Hazrat Ali and that letraure was discussed by Mr. Ashiq BA (A zakir now he was dead thru Accident) in the remot area of Punjab. Just with in 15 to 20 years the drama gives the results that lot of innocenct peoples who did not even know how to prepare Wazoo had come on tomb and lot of Holar Bazi and Bai hiai on this place of Qabrasatan.
    May Allah give Hadayat to all of us. and we must kept & follow Quran and Suunah being a muslim and Khusnudi of Allah. Baqi sab chizoon ko Allah per chood dain. Hazarat Ali ka Kool hai K Waqat se Pehlay aur Muqar se Ziada Nahi Mil Sakta to Hum Qun in Be waqoof un me Logoon k Peechay dhoor Rahi Hain.
    Allah ki Rasi Ko Mazbooti se Tham Lo. Yani Quran Aur Baki Fitnoon se Apne Ap ko Bacho.
    Thank
    J
