History of Hazrat shams-e- tabrizi

Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra) ad. 1248 was an Iranian Sufi mystic born in the city of Tabriz in Iranian Azerbaijan. He is responsible for initiating Mawlana Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi (rah), usually known as Rumi in the West, into Islamic mysticism, and is immortalized by Rumi's poetry collection Diwan-e Shams-e Tabriz-i ("The works Shams of Tabriz ") (Ra). Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra) lived together with Rumi in Koyna in present day Turkey, for several years, and is also known to have traveled to Damascus in modern Syria.After several years with Rumi, Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra) disappeared from the pages of history quite suddenly. It is unknown what happened to him after his departure from Rumi, and there are several sites that claim to his grave, one in a remote region of the Karakoram in Northern Pakistan at a place called Ziarat, near the village Shimshall, and another in the same city that was buried in Rumi: Konya, Turkey. Rumi's love for Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra), and his grief at his death, found expression in an outpouring of music, dance, and lyrics. Rumi himself left Konya and went searching for Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra), traveled far Damascus before realizing that Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra) and himself were, in fact, "the same" As the years passed, Rumi attributed more and more of his own poetry to Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Raz), as a sign of love for his deceased friend and master. In fact, it soon becomes clear in reading Rumi that Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Raz), was elevated to a symbol of God's love for humanity, and that Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra), was a Sun ("Shams" is Arabic for "sun") shining the Light of God on Rumi.The image of Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra), which is transmitted in the later Sufi tradition is that of an ecstatic wandering mystic who theophanic teacher for Rumi. While the relationship between Rumi and Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Raz), is certainly one of the finest in the history of Islamic mysticism, the person of Shams is different from the image being projected onto him. The Maqalat Shams (oral discourses), which are now provided, Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(Ra), comes across as a scholar, who was especially interested in proving his devotion to the Prophet Muhammad (S). He repeatedly criticizes philosophers and other mystics who tried to elevate themselves above the prophet of Islam.In the contemporary period Tabrezi Shams, there is confusion over the name "Shams" as there were three persons existing at the same time. This was Tabrezi Shams, Ismaili PIR (Dai) and Ismaili Imam Shamsuddin Shams Sabzwari.The tomb in Multan, Pakistan is Pir Shams Sabzwari, but it is known as Shams Tabrez. Nobody knows exactly where the tomb of Hazrat Shams-e Tabrizi-(GAC) is located.

  1. I endorse the fact that the tomb in Multan is not that of Hazrat Shah Shams Tabriz (RA)

  2. I heard lot about Hazrat Shah Shams Tabriz and carried the belief that this saint may have traveled to Multan after he was found missing. Sardar Sahib shall unveil this fact to the world. May Allah bless you for putting us wise on the subject. By now many people have earned lot of money in their name. Babiwal

  5. from what i have read about rumi and sham-e-tabreez. two thoughts came into my mind. i agree with the fact that people shall be aware of the that this maqbara in multan is not infact of sham-e-tabreez. but shouldnt we be focusing on what gem he was and what amzaingly beautiful words he left for us to consider rather than looking for his maqbara. he obviously was a personality to remember because his words had the magic that effected so many lives to the purity of soul.

  6. there is bit a mistake in article. Pir shams sabzwari was Ismaili 'Pir/dia' who first time brought Ismailism and Islam in pak-ind in multan. Whereas Imam Shams Uddin Muhammad was 28th Ismaili Imam and had never been in pak-ind. so these were two different personalities. Shams tabriz is still consider as a Pir/dia in Ismaili beliefs. afterall he had a plenty of links with islmaili. he wrote many of ginans and qasaids in love of imams, which are still chanted in Ismaili community.

  7. According to some sources this is also believed that Shams of Tabrez was mudered by the jealous disciples of Moulana Jala Ud Din Rumi. His younger son Ala ud Din was also involved in his murder but according to Moulana Jala Ud Din Rumi's Elder son's in his writings he has mentioned that Shams of Tabrez disappear one day and we never found him again in Konya. Allah knows better where he went but historians have contradiction upon his Death and Tomb.
