If you have visited Ajmer Sharif Dargah or even if you haven’t got the chance, but you must have seen or heard about the grand silver coated Jannat ka Darwaza (Door to Heaven) situated inside Ajmer Sharif Dargah.
History and Significance : According to Islamic Doctrine, when Khwaja Garib Nawaz had a vision of Prophet Muhammed (SAW), he saw them passing through a door which directly led to heaven. Thereafter, KGN (Khwaja Saheb) sculpted an identical door in Masjid-e-Haram of Ajmer Sharif Dargah.
Allah said to Khwaja Sahib during his preachings, that those people who could not make visit to Mecca’s land for any reason, if they will pass through this door, then all their prayers and vows will be considered. Khwaja Saheb, then, sent this message of Allah to the unimaginable through his khidmats.
Belief : It’s a belief that, whoever crosses the Jannat ka Darwaza walking towards the holy tomb and alongside the marble wall and emerges out in courtyard through the exit door on the South and then again repeats this six more times, he or she surely reserves a place for him in heaven.(The Jannat ka Darwaza is to be crossed seven times only and in one stretch).
Time to Visit : Jannat ka Darwaza opens only four times during a year:-
- One Day on Idd Al Fitar
- One Day on Idd Al Azah
- One Day on 6th of Shawwal- Urs Of Khawaja Usman Harooni (RA)
- Six Days in Rajab- Urs Of Khawaja Garib Nawaz (RA)
Magnificent Jannati Darwaja has Holy Names Allah and Muhammed, Quranic texts, holy Kalmas and Islamic Ayats engraved on it. It’s a boon of Allah to us and we wish everyone should get a chance to visit Ajmer Sharif Dargah and pass through the holy Jannati Darwaza and secure a place for oneself in Allah’s heaven.
