Sayyidi Mehr Ali Shah (ra)

Sayyidi Mehr Ali Shah (ra) departed from this world on the 29th Safar. His Urs is celebrated by his followers every year at Glora Sharif in Pakistan. Hz Mehr Ali Shah was a great scholar and sufi and a paragon of the Ahl al-Bayt in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.  He is perhaps best remembered for his defeat of the Qadiani pretender to prophethood but in his lifetime he was renowned as an expositor of the works of Shaykh al Akbar, Muhammad Ibn al Arabi (ra). In fact his personality was a unique blend of the ilm, irfan and ishq. May Allah be pleased with him and his noble ancestors and teachers and allow us to benfit by them in both worlds.
