Hazrat Maqdoom Sama Uddin Sohrewardi was the last towering Sufi Saint of the Sohrewardi Order. His father Hazrat Farid Uddin was the disciple of Hazrat Sadr Uddin known as Raju Qattal. Hazrat Sama Uddin was a disciple of Hazrat Kabir Uddin Ismail, who was also the disciple of Hazrat Raju Qattal. He had two sons Hazrat Abdullah Biyabani and HazratNaseer uddin who was his successor. Hazrat Sama Uddin got his education from Hazrat Saiyad Sharif Jirjani, philosopher and scholar at the court of Taimur Shah (d.1405). Hazrat Sama Uddin settled in Bayana during the reign of emperor Behlol Lodi (1451-1489). After Behlol Lodi, Sikandar Lodi (1489 - 1517) became the new emperor, who respected Hazrat Sama Uddin highly. In one of Hazrat Sama Uddins teachings the emperor was told by him that " there are three types of people who could never hope to receive blessings; one is old men who sinned, second young men who did likewise but hope to repent at a later date and the third, the king who lied" . Hazrat Sama Uddin wrote a commentary on Lumat of Hazrat Shaikh Uddin Iraqi .He has written a book "Mufta ul Asrar" (Key to the Devine Secret). In "Akhbar Ul Akiyar" Hazrat Abdul Haq Mohaddis Delhvi (1551 A.D.-1642 A.D.) said:

"Shaikh Sama Uddin was complete in fear of God, in guarding himself from sin, in outer and inner knowledge. He possessed perfectly the power of attraction in the assembly. Moreover the heart of any sick person he used to look at graciously became cleaned from any spiritual disease and the purposes of any seeker he looked at fulfilled".

In the holy domb of shaikh Hazrat Makhdoom Samauddin Soharwardi , there are six holy graves including Hazrat Shaikh Samauddin .

This adjoining Mosque of the shrine of Sheikh Sama uddin was built in Lodi Dynasty’s time. It is also called the Qanati Masjid. In 1975 it was repaired by my father.Hazrat Dr.Zahurul Hassan Sharib, Gudri Shah Baba Ajmeri. In the mosque there are three rooms (Hujra).

SON BURJ:

It is a Mehfil Khana of Sheikh Sama uddin Sohrewardi where he used to give teachings and Zikr. The size of Son Burj is 140x173 feet with basement. Now there is a three-sided graveyard and one side road along this building.

According to Husain Ahmed Zuberi the author of Khandan Zuberi the Son Burj is also called the Hasht Mahal , because if we calculate the numerical figure of the urdu alphabets of Hasht Mahal , it is 901 which is the same number of the date of the death of sheikh Sama uddin (d.901 H).

GRAVEYARDS :

All around the shrine of Sheikh Sama Uddin there was a very big graveyard with big and small domes or chatri (small domes) on the graves of his family which is now demolished and occupied by the unauthorized people. Still some graves and domes can be seen there.

“His ( Sheikh Sama Uddin) monument is situated at Shams e Talab at Delhi, where the graves of his family also situated in a line and row”. ( Akhbar ul Akhiyar )

The ruins of this building can still be seen. There are also the graves. It was used as a guest House for devotees and family especially during the Urs time. This building has a very beautiful location, It has a Shamsi Talab view. It is next to Aulia Masjid

MADARSA

The most famous creation of Sheikh Sama Uddin was his Madarsa. In the Muntakhab-ut-Tawarikh on the page p. 86,Abdul Qadir Badauni has written:

Marasa of Maulana Sama'uddin: Maulana Sama'uddin had also set up a madasa at Delhi in which he taught for a long time. After him, Sheikh Fateh Ullah, Sheikh 'Abdul Ghafoor and Mufti Jamaluddin, the grandson of Maulana Sama'uddin kept the torch of learning aloft in this institution benefiting a large number of students.

The ruins of the Madarsa can still be seen near the tomb. This is a reason that this dargah has a very big area.

DISCIPLE- Hazrat Jamali

Among his disciples Hazrat Jamali was the most famous murid "the author of "Sair Ul Arefeen"(Biography of the Gnostics). This book’s first Chapter is on Hazrat Khawaja Moin Uddin Hasan Chishti and the last Chapter is on his master Hazrat Sama Uddin .This way he tried to bring together the Chishti and Sohrewardi Order. He was also a very famous poet . He has a Dewan (poetic collection) .He is also famous for his masnavi (A kind of verse) "Meh ro Mah" . Hazrat Jami (d.9 Nov.1492) the most eminent Persian poet of his time ,was a great admirer of Hazrat Jamali. When Hazrat Jamali visited Hazrat Jami at Herat, he sat very near to him. Hazrat Jami was very angry as he has seen him first time .He asked Hazrat Jamali "What is the different between him and an ass" Jamali immediately spread his span and said "only one span"
