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".

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).
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).
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.
According to Sheikh Abdul Haq Mohaddis Delhvi:
“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 )
LANGER KHANA :
It was used as a Langer Khana especially for food during his Urs, which is now occupied by the unauthorized occupants.
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
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.
