Where Dreadly Scorpions turn Saint: Dargah Shah Wilayat



Dargah Shah Vilayat at Amroha may be a place of curiosity for many. Scorpions turn saint here. Unlike their tendency to sting at a very first instance they lye cool and calm. It is said that Hazrat Sharafuddin Shah Vilayat a Naqvi Syed from the reputed iraqi family, migrated to India during the Sultanate era. He encountered one more Saint Hazrat Shah Nasruddin. Nasruddin wasn't in favor to have a man who may divert some of his disciples. He asked Shah Sharafuddin to leave the place which was turned down by him. Nasruddin said in anger, your grave may be guarded by deadly scorpions. OK, it will but they all may live in peace and may not harm anyone, replied Shah Vilayat. I am here for the sake of love and humanity and love finds place for itself. His words came true. The grave is really guarded by scorpions but they live in peace with humans aside, just like saints. Surprised? no matter, just come here and see
and will need an evidence...

great write up on scorpions. hope to see many more off beat stories from you. i am sure as a journalist you will make a mark, because in your writing there is some passion and creativity. please never be a professional. i would rather have you as a passionate, with feelings, and a degree of commitment to human and secular values
