This innocuous looking building in Delhi’s Adhchini, is of great import.
it was once the house of Sheikh Najibuddin Mutawakkil, the brother and khalifa of Baba Farid Ganj e Shakkar and teacher of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya.
It adjoins the dargah of Mai Sahiba and as i in their lifetimes they are neighbors even in death.
As was the custom of those days sheikh Najib was buried in his house. It is a simple dargah with one room containing two graves in the centre and two small ones on the sides. It is in a small compound next to a brand new mosque.
The first one is of Bibi Fatima Saheba, daughter of Baba Farid Ganj e Shakkar. The other two are of infant sons of Sheikh Najibuddin Mutawakkil: Sheikh Ahmed and Sheikh Ismail.
Sheikh Najibuddin was a scholar saint of great repute, and once his neighbor, the young Nizam ( Mehboob e Ilahi) asked Sheikh Najibuddin to pray that he could become a Qazi.
Sheikh Najibuddin remained silent. When Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya came a second time with the same request he replied, ‘Why do you want to become a Qazi? You are destined for something else.’
Next to it is an old graveyard and once people wanting to get salvation from the barakat of the saint would have been buried there.
