This is Faiyaz Ali Baba, a Rafaee and he does this for a living, these are mendicant Sufis, the Chancawalli Sufis , they visit Dargahs at Urus time , I met them first at the Shrine of Makhdoom Shah Baba Mahim , about two years back, that time their leader Late Sikandar Wali Baba , took me under his fold, permitting me to shoot their photos as I do not adher to Sufi beliefs , but anything that has Hazrat Ali or Ahle Bait I am ready to take part in it.. and honestly it was the words of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty on the doors of the Bulund Darwaza

Shah ast Hussain, Badshah ast Hussain
Deen ast Hussain, Deen Panah ast Hussain
Sardad na dad dast, dar dast-e-yazeed,
Haqaa key binaey La ila ast Hussain

that drove me towards the bounty of the Khwajah Moinuddin Chishty and this endeavour would have not been possible without the help of my Peersaab Fakhru Miya Hujra no 6.
