Mystic Powers

On page 59 of the book “Tulasī kī sāhitya-sādhanā: The Legacy of the Nizams”, published by the H.E.H The Nizam’s Urdu Trust Hyderabad, author   Lallana Rāya states the King, Mir Mahbub Ali Khan was also known to be a possessor of supernatural mystical healing powers.  Rāya writes ,

“Mir Mahboob Ali Khan was known to possess healing power for snake bite. With his spell, it is said that the venom of the snake would abate. It was his order that if anyone from the public had a snake bite, he could approach him. It happened a number of times when he was awakened from his sleep.

It is said that Lord Nawab Muneer uddin Khan Taluqdar who knew this spell, taught the mantra to Mir Mahboob Ali Khan. When a man suffered from a snake bite, the name of the Mahboob Ali had to be mentioned in these terms: “Mahboob Ali Pasha Ki Dohaee”. Then, the venom would not spread further, or in other words, the venom of the snake would abate. Hence, the name of Mahboob Ali Pasha, and the practice of spell of snake bite became famous throughout Hyderabad.” [Tulasī kī sāhitya-sādhanā: The Legacy of the Nizams by Lallana Rāya, published by the H.E.H The Nizam’s Urdu Trust Hyderabad, 2002. p. 59].

    This article clearly signifies that a mentor is required even for the Highest of Nobelities.The actual word to describe is Taqleed.The Mystic teacher had certain norms and standards to be accepted to pass on the actual cure and this was a very rigorous exercise which had its initiation in the early hours of the morning and Nawab Munir ud-Din Khan: A Mystic Teacher to Asaf Jah VI His Highness Mir Mahbub Ali Khan, the 6th Nizam of Hyderabad had compliance from the King.

    Assalam u alayekum!
    The presence of both “Khan” and “Syed” in the name makes confusion.Can you please clarify that?
    Thank you.

      The name and title of the King was also Mir Mahbub Ali Khan Siddiqui. Khan was a title adopted by even the Ottoman Caliphs, and of course the Mughals and the Asaf Jah dynasty. There is ample research on this available on the internet and in books. I suggest you consult those.
