Hence, the incident occurred in the same way, that is, when Hazrat Esa Alaihis-Salaam was brought in the Bait ul Muqaddas, Yaqoob (that is, Pitras), was also with him. When the torches were lit, a house cleaner identified Pitras. She reported to the Jew lords that when Hazrat Esa Alaihis-Salaam used to came at Heikal for delivering Sermons, that person used to accompany him. Hence, the Jew lords, as a procedure of investigation, asked him trice if he was companion of Esa Yasooh Naasri. Yaqoob denied for all the three times and said that he never knew him. It was exactly one quarter of night to pass yet that the cock crowed as alarm call. Then Yaqoob (Pitras) felt great regrets and penitence in his heart that his prophecy proved true for him and he denied knowing him for three times before the crow of the cock before dawn.
Now we return to the incidence of Shahadat of Hazrat Maulvi. Sultan Daaya says that 'I ran after my Murshid till dusk and we reached the city known as Chotra Sargana which is near the river Ravi. The wife of the noble of that city, Mrs. Mehar Sultan, was a strong devotee of Hazrat Maulvi Sinhdi. When she heard the news of his arrival there, she sent a bed and bed sheet by means of her servant.
She also came there. Maulvi Sahib did not eat or drink anything and lay on that bed facing towards Qiblah. She sat on a carpet facing him and I (Sultan Daaya) sat on floor at one side. A while passed in silence and the son of Mehar Sultan, accompanied by two servants arrived there with naked swords and they beheaded Maulvi Sahib. No voice came out from him and he still lay still facing Qiblah and got Martyrdom in this way. 'We are Allah's and Lo! unto Him we are returning (2:156). That woman sat still gazing at Maulvi Sahib's body and she was also killed there. That innocent lady also received Martyrdom. May Allah grant her His Forgiveness! Sultan Daaya escaped unharmed.
Body of Hazrat Maulvi Sahib was cut into pieces with too many blows of swords. These pieces were collected in a cloth and were buried in the graveyard of Shah Nizaam. In its east-south, is situated the tomb of Ali Haider. There is situated the tomb of Hazrat Maulvi Sahib which is very illuminated and bright and a place frequently visited by many people. May Allah Almighty shower His Mercy on Hazrat Maulvi Sindhi Sahib and endow us with his Pure Qualities and enrich us with his high conduct (and morals)! Ameen!
