It wasn’t like it was the first time I went and it certainly won’t be the last time I go hopefully In Sha Allah.
The shrine of Lal Sain has always held a special place in my heart. Even though I did a lot of my growing up in
Lahore and Data Durbar looms larger than any
other in Pakistan but still the peace and
happiness I feel at Laal Sain
A lot of people say going to shrines is heresy.
I always maintain that it’s not. Remember that
prayers are only for Allah SWT and shrines are
for adoration and never worship.
For those who are not acquainted with Sehwan
Sharif, it is a 3.5 to 4.0 hour journey
depending on your time of
travel, speed, number of stops etc.
This Sunday my Family and I left our house for
Sehwan Sharif at 6 am. At precisely 11:00 Am we were at the shrine
and at 3:00 pm we were back home. The road all the way to Sehwan has been remade and is excellent.
Remember though to keep away from the pick pockets and the scams that abound in Sehwan. But you are likely to
forget it all in the face of the serenity there.
Great. That is also a wonderful experience. Such serenity. The trip through the “bazzar” with its quaint little shops n stalls is an eyeful.
Very well written. Yes, its truly an amazing place full of peace with sufi vibes.
Did you visit Sain Bodla Bahar (Lal Sain’s #1 disciple)
Yes Zarrar we went to Bodla bahar Also. Such a beautiful story they narrate about him.
