Tariqa Lineage [Silsila Tariqat] of Daata Sahib Hazrat Ali Hajvairi

Hazrat Ali Hajvairi also known as Data Sahib Lahore was a descendant of Hazrat Ali R.A. , hence lineage tracing several noble Syeds. His first name Usman also show the reverence of a true Syed towards 3rd Caliph of Islam, in contrary to some stories that circulate today demeaning the great stature of Hazrat Usman R.A.

On shrine of Data Sahib is engraved this beautiful verse stating “Abu Bakr is like the Kaaba, Hazrat Umar is the door/beginning to Tawaaf, Usman is Zamzam water and Ali is like Haj ritual”.

Each of these are part of pilgrimage and without any of these, the visit to Makkah remains incomplete. It is symbolic verse empahsizng the importance of each of the four great companions of Prophet SAW. It shows the Hazrat Ali R.A’ belief in the 4 caliphs of Islam, each in unique way that remains a fundamental part of Islam.
