Mawlana ‘Abd-al Rahman Jami’s meeting with Khwaja Muhammad Parsa

The venerable Khwaja Muhammad Para was the first great Shaikh and spiritual guide encountered by the venerable Mawlana Jami.  In the Nafahat, one of his greatest works on Sufism, Mawlana Jami has this to say about Shaikh Muhammad Parsa:

“In the year A.H. 822/1419 C.E., while the venerable Khwaja Muhammad Parsa  was passing through Damascus on the Pilgrim journey, my father went out to meet him, together with a caravan of his companions.  At that time, I had not completed my fifth year of age.  My father took me along with him, on the shoulder of one of his friends.  They introduced me to the venerable Khwaja, who treated me with kind attention and tender care.  He presented me with a flower.  Sixty years have passed between that day and this, but my heart still contains the joy of his radiant face, and the thrill of his blessed form.  In my attachment and love for the dynasty of the Masters of Wisdom, I hope that I have the means to assure my acceptance in their circles, and that I shall be resurrected in their company.” (Rashahat ain al-hayat, p.166).
