The Tree
It is said in `Munaqabi Sultani' that Hazrat Muhammed Siddiq (Radi Allahu anhu) and some of his companions (friends) had stopped for a while at the tomb of Hazrat Sultan Ul Arifeen Hazrat Sultan Bahu (Radi Allahu anha). In those days, at the entrance to the tomb of the saint stood a large berry tree. One day a blind man on his way to the tomb had injured himself with a trunk from this tree.

Seeing his state, the dervishes gathered at the area of the tomb, to think about what should be done to stop such an injury again. After a lot of discussing, they decided to cut the tree. But as all the dervishes who were staying there at the time were live hearted saints, they decided to get `spiritual guidance' from Hazrat Sultan Bahu (RA) on the matter.

That very night `khalifa' Muhammed Siddiq Radi Allahu anha was blessed with a vision of Hazrat Sultan Bahu (RA), who told him not to cut the tree. He was told that the tree would move itself to the northern side of the tomb, an area which was behind the head side of the tomb. That very night Hazrat Muhammed Siddiq Radi Allahu anha informed the other dervishes of his vision and went to his cell again. The next morning to everyone’s surprise the tree had moved to the northern side of the tomb. This tree still stands there today, its branches stick outwards towards the heavens, as a monument to show to us the reality of the saints of Allah.....that these are the men of knowledge. The writer had himself seen this tree on his fist visit to the tomb in 1982.
