Famous Writer Mumtaz Mufti Sahib mentioned a Saint (Darvesh) ‘Bhai Jaan’ in his books many times. ‘Bhai Jaan’ was a Mureed-e-Khas of ‘Saeen Allah Bakhs RA’ (Buried in Mareer Rawalpindi) and he was a very firm believer of Pakistan’s great future.

In this post, Bhai Jaan’s some spiritual Foretelling about Future of Pakistan are presented. Remember, these spiritual talks are scattered all over the book ‘Alakh Nagri’ and they were stated in 1955 to 1970 time span (approx). In the end, an extract from Book: Pyaz Ke Chilke with English translation is also posted.
Pakistan had become an abode of peace for us. Pakistan had security for us, Muslims. Now I could really feel with high intensity that I am a Muslim. Though the light of faith was there in my heart or not, whether my lifestyle was in accordance with Islam or not. Whether there were pro-Islamic sentiments in my heart or not. In any case, I was a Muslim.
Eight years passed by. During this time, I got acquainted with a literary figure who was full of Islamic zeal and fervor. Someone in whose life the Islamic codes were practically visible. One day, I went to meet him and saw Khawaja Sahib seated there. We were introduced to each other. After this, I had the opportunity to come across Khawaja sahib quite many a times, now and then. Khawaja Sahib spoke less. He was used to hearing what others had to say instead of talking himself. He was intelligent and had a keen eye on various affairs. He always felt delight in helping others and the best thing in him was his correctness.
One day, I left for the graveyard. There, inside an ordinary square-walled building, I saw Khawaja Sahib reciting Fatiha over a grave. I stopped. After he got free, he greeted me with great joy as usual.
“So tell me, how are you?” he asked.
I replied “Not well really..”
“And why is that?” he asked.
“Just going through anxiety”, I replied.
He asked again “Why? Anxiety for what?”
I said “Khawaja sahib, what will become of Pakistan? This boat is shaking wildly”
I had said this in a bit of amusement. It is true that I could feel Pakistan’s boat shaking, but I had no real concern for it in my heart.
Khawaja sahib actually turned serious after listening to what I said:
“Mufti sahib” he said “Why do you worry for Pakistan when there are so many huge entities and personalities worrying for it? Why do you or I have to worry for it?”
He paused for a while, then continued “Do you see that old man over there?” I looked towards the place Khawaja sahib was pointing at, where he was offering Fatiha just a while ago. Khawaja sahib spoke up
“That old man had spent his whole life for the creation of Pakistan. This tree was planted by him”
“Mufti sahib”, he said smiling “Great personalities are working for Pakistan. Why do you worry?”
“Then what do I do?” I inquired jokingly.
“What you can do is, before you do something, ponder over whether you are working for Pakistan’s benefit? Is your step going against Pakistan? Your own interest lies in it. Pakistan will live free and prosper no matter what. People will be stunned by its blossoming. Insha’Allah!”
