A very nice song about Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalandar RA, and Sehwan Sharif a patron saint of Sindhis, was born early in the twelfth century in 1177 in Marwand, now Afghanistan, to a noble Makhdum, Sayed Ahmed Kabir, who was a close friend of the King of Tabriz. Lal Shahbaz Qalandar's real name was Sayed Muhammad Usman and his mother was a high-ranking princess. He showed from his infancy signs of a deep spiritual nature. It is said that even when very young he had developed occult powers. He knew Quran by heart at age seven, and at twenty he was initiated into the Qalandar order. It is believed that Lal Shabaz Qalandar was so named because of the red robe he wore all his life.The shrine around Lal Shahbaz Qalandar tomb, built in 1356, dazzles the eye with its Sindh kashi tiles, mirror work and two gold-plated doors - one donated by the late Shah of Iran, the other by the late Prime Minister Zulfikar Bhutto of Pakistan. The inner sanctum is about 100 yards square with the silver canopied grave in the middle. His annual Urs celebrations are held on the 18 Shaban - the eighth month of the Islamic lunar calendar. It attracts over half a million pilgrims mainly from Sindh and Punjab who flock into Sehwan, a small town of about 30,000. On each morning of the three-day feast, the narrow lanes of Sehwan are packed to capacity as thousands and thousands of pilgrims, fakirs and worshipers make their way to the shrine to commune with the saint.
