The IECRC will hold an 'Urs (Commemoration) of the Great Wali (Saint) of Hind (India), Hazrat Khawaja Muniuddin Chishti (may God shower His Mercy on his soul). It is the great Blessing and Mercy of our Magnanimous Creator, Allah Almighty, that He has chosen from amongst His creation, pure and pious personalities to guide humanity. After the Seal of Prophethood, the Beloved,
Holy Prophet Muhammad (may the prayers and peace of Allah Almighty be upon Him, His Blessed Family and Noble Companions) this task was given in the custody of the great Saints of the Islamic tradition – the Awliya Kiram, may Allah be well pleased with them all.

One of the shining luminaries in this constellation of Saints is the great Sultanul-Hind Hazrat Khwaja Muinuddin Hasan Chishti Sanjari Ajmeri famous as Khawaja Ghareeb Nawaz (may Allah have mercy on him). Khwaja is a Persian word which means Master or Teacher.

As in the tradition of an 'Urs, the IECRC will conduct a Mehfil-e-Samaa (Gathering of Audition) program in the Qawwali tradition at it Niles Zikr Hall, 37270 Niles Blvd, Fremont, CA between 4pm and 6pm on Sunday, July 20, 2008.
