During the monsoon season almost all
the roads of Mumbai become rough and have potholes. The shore line
along the Hornby Vellard (Lala Lajpat Rai Marg) has been damaged
numerous times due to the fury of the seas but up till today
the pathway of the Dargah has never been damaged or become unsafe for the
people to reach the Dargah Sharief even though it is situated in the
middle of the Sea. The pathway has been spared by the fury of the
sea and the monsoons. This is one of the biggest
miracles of the saint, hundreds of years after his death.
Storm of 1949
In 1949 there was a big storm in
Mumbai, which had not spared a single building without damage, but there was no damage to the Dargah,
Sanatorium or the Pathway. There were waves of the size of
mountains (like Tsunami) and most of the people who were inside
the Dargah Complex were scared that they would drown.
The waves then bowed down at the wall of the Dargah as if in
submission to the Saint and faded back into the ocean. At the
time, Earthen Lamps (Chiraags) were seen floating on the crest of
the waves which was
witnessed by hundreds of people. The people then
returned home safely, unhurt & unharmed and without any damage to their
26th July 2005
During the heavy rains on 26th July 2005 there was a huge
destruction over most of the parts of Mumbai but the Haji Ali
Dargah was not affected by this incident.
Faith of the Followers
It is learnt from the thousands of
visitors and devotees who have visited the tomb of the Saint
with profound faith and belief they have realized whatever
gains they had sought from the Saints blessings.
