The Webmaster

My name is Muhammad Khurram Iftikhar Khan. I am a student of Computer Sciences in Western Michigan University, USA. This is an honour for such a sinful person like me to develop and manage a website of such a greatest and eminent personality of his times, Hazrat Syedna Pir Meher Ali Shah (R.A).

Love of Almighty Allah, His Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H), Companions of the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) and Awlia-e-Allah (Friends of Allah, pious personalities) is the basic element of one's faith. As it is also the field of my interest, I decided to make a website about Hazrat Syedna Pir Meher Ali Shah (R.A). 

How I thought of making this site?

As we all know that this is the era of Information Technology. This world has become a global village or rather a global street where anyone from anywhere can access any information required. The World Wide Web (www), popularly known as the internet, can be a good source of providing information about Islam and the loved-ones of God Almighty and clearing the misconceptions of people about Islam, the religion of peace and harmony.

Whenever I searched information on the  internet about Islam and specially about Awlia-Allah, I couldn't find many websites. Even those which I saw on the web were inadequate to provide a complete information and were also lacking a professional look. Therefore, I decided to make a website that would be comprehensive and a professionally made website on Hazrat Syedna Pir Meher Ali Shah (R.A). But the difficult part was collecting the correct information about the subject. 

When I presented this idea in front of Pir Syed Ghulam Qutb-ul-Haq Gilani Sahib, the grand-grandson of Hazrat Syedna Pir Meher Ali Shah (R.A), he happily agreed on this and provided me all the information needed to complete the website successfully. At every difficult stage and every phase of the website, Allah Almighty helped me. I felt Syedna Pir Meher Ali Shah (R.A), spiritually, guiding me at every phase of the website.  

Al-Hamdulillah, by the guidance of Ala-Hazrat Syedna Pir Meher Ali Shah (R.A), the first ever official website of the greatest Sufi saint and Wali-Ullah of his time has been launched on the web.  

Aim of this website

As mentioned before, this website aims at providing and making relevant information accessible to those interested in the lives and achievements of the Holy Saints the friends of Allah, as well as to aware the people to show the true picture of the anti-Islamic movements such as Qadianism.
