Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya (1238-3/04/1325) was one of the most renowned saints of Indian subcontinent during the Chishti Order. This order followed principles which had different ways of preaching the lord. They were extensively into public service and realized the God through means of servitude and humanity.

Along with humanity, he stressed on love for the fellow humans to please God and make him listen to ones prayers. He has set many such examples of helping the community through his methods of creating peace with harmony among the sects. He has always pressed his ideas of secularity and equality among all folks who used to seek refuge in his premises.

His predecessors were Fariuddin Ganjshakar, Bakhtiyar Kaki and Moinuddin Chishti. All these members constituted the initial spiritual chain of the Chishti Order and preached similar ways of leading life have always been inspirations for many followers.

The lifestyle or the ways in which the saints of the Chishti Order preached began a community in itself and was called Sufism. This sect already existed in the other parts of the world but was not famous in the Indian subcontinent. Sooner hundreds of more followers came into the league and the community expanded within itself and also parallel to the other communities.

The family lineage was as follows - Sultan-ul-Mashaikh, Mehboob-e-Ilahi, Hazrat Shaikh Khwaja, Syed Muhammad bin Abdullah Al-Hussaini and Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya.

The Dargah of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya is a pilgrim to a lot of Muslim people and every day hundreds of people visit the dargah to pray. People are here to offer devotion to the grave of the saint and this is done with the help of flowers and the scent of incense sticks. Thursday being a day of more importance in the Sufi mythology so the footfall increases on Thursdays and remains stagnant during the weekdays.
