Hazrat Eshan

Hazrat Eshan, a native of Bokhara, studied at a Royal college and became an accomplished scholar. The fame of his piety and devotion reached far and wide, as he made hundreds of thousands of disciples in Herat, Kabul and Kandhar.

He came to Kashmir in Emperor Akbar’s reign and Jehangir, his successor, took him to Agra. During the rule of Shah Jahan, he shifted to Lahore. His mausoleum was established in his life.

It is said that Nur Jahan was cured by the prayer of Hazrat Eshan, who used to hold religious discourses with Hazrat Mian Mir. ____ZULQERNAIN TAHIR
