Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah

Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah is the dargah (mausoleum) of one of the world's most famous Sufi saints, Hazrat Khwaja Syed Nizamuddin Auliya (1238 - 1325 CE). Situated in the Hazrat Nizamuddin West area of Delhi, the dargah is visited by thousands of Muslims every week, and sees a fair share of Hindus, Christians and people from other religions. The tombs of poet Hazrat Amir Khusro and Mughal princess Jehan Ara Begum are also located within the Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah complex, and Inayat Khan's tomb is just around the corner. Arziyan, a qawwali in the film Delhi 6 (2009) composed by A. R. Rahman is dedicated to Nizamuddin Auliya. Kun Faya Kun a song in the movie Rockstar (2011) composed by A. R. Rahman, is also shot at the dargah, featuring Ranbir Kapoor and Nizami Brothers, the traditional qawwals of the dargah. The dargah has also been featured in movies like Bajrangi Bhaijaan featuring Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor, and in Aawan Akhiyan Jawan Akhiyan a qawwali in the film Ahista Ahista (2006) featuring Soha Ali Khan and Abhay Deol. Qawwali sessions are held every Thursday after Maghrib prayer i.e. sunset time namaz/salat. Often Saturday is also a Qawwali session day but sometimes due to various reasons it is cancelled. But Thursday sessions are never cancelled being precursor to jumme ki raat (i.e. Friday eve).
