Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti thereupon countered: “If the camels sit there, let them sit.” He after that stayed on a Hill close to Ana Sagar Lake and utilized the site now best-known as Chillah Khwaja Sahib.

The camels came back to their usual position and sat certainly there as usual, but once they sat, they were unable to stand up again. The Raja was knowledgeable.

Live in my group for a few time once again so that thou may’st obtain spiritual capabilities through the constancy of my training and speaking and after that permanently settle down in Ajmer.” The famous poet of Shiraz, Sheikh Sa’di came to Delhi at that time and had the opportunity of meeting both the saints.
