Mian Muhammad Bakhsh: Mian Muhammad Bakhsh was a Sufi saint and a Punjabi/Pahari poet of great repute; he belonged to the Qadiri tariqah. He is especially renowned as the writer of a book of poetry called Saiful Maluk. He was born in a village called khanqa peir-E-shah Gazi Khari Sharif, situated near Mirpur District of Azad Jammu & Kashmir).
He belonged to the Gujjar baradari and the Poswal clan, he was a fourth generation descendant of Pir-e Shah Ghazi Qalandar Damriyan Wali Sarkar, who was buried in Khari Sharif. Pir-e Shah Ghazi's khalifah was Khwajah Din Muhammad; and his khalifah was Mian Shamsuddin, who had three sons: Mian Bahaval Bakhsh, Mian Muhammad Bakhsh - the subject of this article -, and Mian 'Ali Bakhsh. Mian Muhammad Bakhsh's ancestors originated in Gujrat, but had later settled in the Mirpur District of Azad Jammu & Kashmir. He was poet of Phari language (widely spoken in different parts of Kashmir.
Mian Muhammad Bakhsh himself states in his magnum opus - Saiful Maluk - that he completed the work in the month of Ramadan, 1279 AH (1863 AD), and that he was then thirty-three years of age. Hence, he must have been born in 1829 or 1830.
He was brought up in a very religious environment, and received his early education at home. He was later sent with his elder brother, Mian Bahaval, to the nearby village of Samwal Sharif to study religious sciences, especially the science of Hadith in the madrassah of Hafiz Muhammad 'Ali. Hafiz Muhammad 'Ali had a brother, Hafiz Nasir, who was a majzub, and had renounced worldly matters; this dervish resided at that time in the mosque at Samwal Sharif. From childhood Mian Muhammad had exhibited a penchant for poetry, and was especially fond of reading Yusuf o Zulaikha by Nur ad-Din Abd ar-Rahman Jami. During his time at the madrassah, Hafiz Nasir would often beg him to sing some lines from Jami's poetry, and upon hearing it so expertly rendered would invariably fall into a state of spiritual intoxication.
Mian Muhammad was still only fifteen years old when his father, falling seriously ill, and realizing that he was on his deathbed, called all his students and local notaries to see him. Mian Shamsuddin told his visitors that it was his duty to pass on the spiritual lineage that he had received through his family from Pir-e Shah Ghazi Qalandar Damriyan Wali Sarkar; he pointed to his own son, Mian Muhammad, and told those assembled that he could find nobody more suitable than he to whom he might award this privilege. Everybody agreed, the young man's reputation had already spread far and wide. Mian Muhammad, however, spoke up and disagreed, saying that he could not bear to stand by and allow his elder brother Bahavul to be deprived of the honour. The old man was filled with so much love for his son that he stood up and leaving his bed grasped his son by the arms; he led him to one corner and made him face the approximate direction of Baghdad, and then he addressed the founder of their Sufi Order, Shaikh 'Abdul-Qadir Jilani, presenting his son to him as his spiritual successor. Shortly after this incident his father died. Mian Muhammad continued to reside in his family home for a further four years, then at the age of nineteen he moved into the khanqah, where he remained for the rest of his life. Both his brothers combined both religion and worldly affairs in their lives, but he was only interested in spirituality, and never married - unlike them.His Formal Pledge of Allegiance
Despite the fact that he had essentially been made a khalifah of his father, he realized that he still needed to make a formal pledge of allegiance or bay'ah to a Sufi master. Having completed his formal education he began to travel, seeking out deserted locations where he would busy himself in prayer and spiritual practices, shunning the company of his fellow-men. He took the Sufi pledge of allegiance or bay'ah with Hazrat Ghulam Muhammad, who was the khalifah of Baba Baduh Shah Abdal, the khalifah of Haji Bagasher (of Darkali Mamuri Sharif, near Kallar Syedan District Rawalpindi), the khalifah again of Pir-e Shah Ghazi Qalandar Dumriyan Wali Sarkar.He is also said to have travelled for a while to Srinagar, where he benefitted greatly from Shaikh Ahmad Vali.
His Poetic Talents and Works Once he had advanced a little along the Sufi way he became more and more interested in composing poetry, and one of the first things he penned was a qasidah (quatrain) in praise of his spiritual guide. Initially he preferred to write siharfis and duhras, but then he advanced to composing stories in verse. His poetry is essentially written in the Pothohari dialect of Panjabi, and utilizes a rich vocabulary of Persian and Arabic words. His works include: Siharfi, Sohni Meheinval, Tuhfah-e Miran, Tuhfah-e- Rasuliyah, Shireen Farhad, Mirza Sahiban, Sakhi Khavass Khan, Shah Mansur, Gulzar-e Faqir, Hidayatul Muslimin,Panj Ganj, Masnavi-e Nirang-e â€˜Ishq. He also wrote a commentary on the Arabic Qasidat-ul-Burda of al-Busiri and his most famous work, entitled Safarul â€˜Ishq (Journey of Love), but better known as Saiful Maluk.
He died on the 7th of the Islamic month of Dhu al-Hijjah 1324 AH (1907 AD), and was buried in Khari Sharif, not far from his illustrious great great grandfather Pier-e-Shah Ghazi Qalandar Damriyan Wali Sarkar. To this day many people visit his tomb with the intention of receiving spiritual blessings

The lovers and followers of Maulvi Sahib are living in various regions of the world and particularly in Sub-continent. His poetry is being read in millions houses. His spiritual verses created good effect on the hearts of the people. Different scholars and Ulamas quote his verses in their meetings and sessions as references. He created an atmosphere of brotherhood, humanitarianism and tolerance in the society. A Memorial Hall and library, in his memory, has been constructed in Alampur Distt. Hoshiarpur, India. The Founding President of Punjab University Lahore Mr. G.W. Leitner has written in his book “History Of Indigenous Education In The Punjab” part II page 49 about Maulvi Sahib “At Alampur, under the Direction of the excellent Maulvi Ghulam Rasool, is a large maktab with 40 pupils, where Persian and Urdu are very well taught by him gratuitously”. The Former Prime Minister of India Mr. I.K Gujral said in his message to Sahibzada Masud Ahmed “Maulvi Ghulam Rasool Alampuri was once such remarkable personality whose contribution has left an indelible mark on the Punjabi literature and folk-lore of both Pakistan and India. His influenced transcends political boundries and legacy creates unified responses in the two countries which is a matter of great pride”. Here, I deem it necessary to clarify some points. 1. Also in accordance with Khalipha Fazal Din Patwari date of death of Hazrat Maulvi Ghulam Rasool Alampuri falls on Monday 7 march 1892, and 7 Shaban 1309 Hijri, 24 Phagan and Maulvi Sahib was buried in graveyard of Alampur and his holy shrine is also there. Whereas grave of Maulvi Sahib was cemented on march 1920 and on it date of death has been written as 7 march 1892. 2. Respectable father of Sahibzada Masud Ahmed Ch. Ghulam Qadir (late) had too much dedication and devotion with Hazrat Maulvi Ghulam Rasool Alampuri. For the construction of Mazare-e-Aqdas of Maulvi Sahib he contacted in India with Sardar Nirmal Singh in 1990. He, re-renovated grave of Maulvi Sahib in 1991 with the help of his friends. 3. Father of Maulvi Sahib was not Imam Masjid of any Mosque but some writers, without any research wrote him as Imam Masjid, which is not correct. He was a sacred person and his ancestral profession was an Agriculturist. 4. Various persons has shown different views without any investigation and with their own guess has given remarks in curriculum books and other research books, about the spiritual attachment of Maulvi Sahib. Some persons has written that Maulvi Sahib was the follower of chain of Chishtia and another person indicated that Maulvi Sahib was of the view of Naqshbandia, but they have no authenticated and clear view about it. Because I had also no clear view about this therefore I was of the view that Maulvi Sahib was not under any route of any sect. This is a matter of secret since the veiling of Maulvi Sahib for about 117 years, but in march 2009 I got a hand written spiritual pedigree of Maulvi Sahib by the grace of Allah. This spiritual pedigree is written in three languages Urdu, Persian and Punjabi in the age of 14 years and this spiritual pedigree was written on the request of a friend Syed Najum-ul-Din. By this it is verified that Maulvi Sahib belong to chain of Qadria. I am publishing it for the interest of people. I leave it on the researchers to investigate that apparently under whose personality Maulvi Sahib was impressed. This is also a fact that Maulvi Sahib was saint by birth. It is evident from his book “Ahsan-ul-Qasas” that spiritually he was very much influenced by Hazrat Imam Ghazali. (1048A.D-1111A.D) I understand that it is good to take responsibility and research and to get full information with care before to write on any historical personality, in which there should be no touch of personal interest. So that correct, certified and useful information may reach to the coming generation and this task should be achieved with intensity of responsibility, sincerity and honesty. Urs of Hazrat Maulvi Ghulam Rasool Alampuri is celebrated every year on 15 of Harr Bikarmi in which people belonging to different religion gather on his Urs to pay homage to the great Saint and poet. And this is for the first time after 1947 on 20th April 2007 Sahibzada Masud Ahmed maternal grandson of Maulvi Sahib went to the Mazar-e-Aqdas where he participated in seminars and meetings as Chief Guest and fixed the date of next Urs as 7 march with reference to the death anniversary of Maulvi Sahib. On the occasion of a dinner hosted by Deputy Commissioner Hoshiarpur in the honour of Sahibzada Masud Ahmed. Sahibzada Masud Ahmed presented a Memoir to the Deputy Commissioner in which it was demanded to rebuild the Mazar-e-Aqdas of Maulvi Sahib, construction of residential rooms for the visitors and scholars, a research centre and a library. It was also demanded to name the Dasuya-Miani road after the name of Maulvi Sahib, the well of Maulvi Sahib’s time should be renovated whereas a road should be constructed to link Dasuya-Miani road with the Mazar-e-Aqdas. In the presence of honourable persons of the locality Deputy Commissioner promised with Sahibzada Masud Ahmed that he will act upon this very soon.

Major Tufail Muhammad was a Gujjar. He belonged to bajar subcaste of Gujjars. His sub caste was Bijar. His bravery was so examplary in the battlefield and was also admitted as high repute by enemy than Government think at time that they must have to create high quality reward for such high quality bravery so Nishan-e-Haider was announced but was given to first Major Sarwar who was shaheed in 1948 , why it was its still a mystery.
