The shrine is located at the famous ten Husain Agahi Bazaar – the biggest in the Walled City -to the southwest of the old Multan Fort (Qila Kunha Qasim Bagh). Hie market was named after the saint due to his fabled spiritual prowess that could help any of his devotees to start a successful business.
Dr Muhammad Shafiq of the Bahauddin Zakariya University’s History Department says there is hardly any dependable information about the saint but it is believed that people would invoke his blessings before launching any business. And that he would even indicate the location where the shop was to be established
He was recognised by the name of Husain Agahi after many began to believe in his foresightedness.
Syed Ghulam Dastagir, the caretaker of the shrine, says the saint is famous as “jalali” (wrathful) and his shrine has been constructed and reconstructed many times.
He says the saint was the caretaker of Hazrat Bahauddin Zakariya’s horse. There has been no Urs of the saint for more
than a decade, he adds, Sagheer Abbas, a devotee, says encroachments have made the shrine invisible and people seem to have forgotthe saint. — SHAKEEL AHMAD Courtesy Daily Dawn
