At another place, his highness says that:
I make my Nafs notorious through the act of beggary,
And go door to door (to conduct Beneficence to people) just because of the Order of God!
That is the reason that the original conditions of his life are totally hidden and secret and in order to find the real conditions of his life, we have no other source except his books and corpus and he has not mentioned anything about his person or about his Mujahidaat, Riyaazaat and the Kashf and Karamaat. However, every breath of his life was the treasure of Kashf and each step of him was the trove of Karamaat. His highness has not initiated the offices of the Pir and Mureed during his life nor has he made any concern with shrine, free food for pilgrims, Khanqah, deputies and the worldly pump and fame and in spite of this, he has given Beneficence to thousands of Seekers without mentioning his blessed self in between (the Seekers and Allah Almighty). Hence, he says that:
Keep yourself hidden from the public up to the maximum that you can,
Keeping ties with people is Khud-Faroshi, then how can the Arifeen like this!
At another place, he says that:
He has preferred anonymity up to so much extent that besides his blessed body, he has also saved his grave against popularity and prominence. Hence, his highness says that:
His grave has no whereabouts; it has no identification to trace it,
He takes his body to the Lamakaan along with him!
That is why, in the beginning, his blessed grave was found as a simple grave made of mud. It was without any building over it. No shrine was made otherwise we see that there are some very ordinary and formal Piraan, who are entombed in great tombs and Khanqah, nonetheless, no one knows if they had left the world with a valid Eimaan. However, since Allah Almighty desired the prominence of his grave, therefore, the Ability caused this in strange and astonishing way. Thus, it has been written in the Manaqib e Sultani that 'on the bank of River Chenab, there was a fort of olden times made with unbaked bricks known as "Qala' Qa'ar Gaan". Along with some other graves in this fort was also the blessed grave of his highness, which was never known by people. In those days, the width of the river Chenab had approached quite near that fort and that fort and the graves inside it were at great risk of destruction by the powerful river.
