Thus, even after so much begs and requests and after many appeals, Hazrat Shaikh Abul Hasan Kharqani Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe refused to accept the gold coins and said that he needed not those nor was he rightful to take them and they deserved with whom that belonged. Sultan Mahmood become the fan and devotee of the Shaikh of a greater degree and used to humbly meet with the Shaikh for many times later on and always requested him to pray and help and to pay his Tawajuh on him. He begged the Shaikh to grant him his cloak as an auspicious endowment which he took along with in for his foreign invasions and Allah Almighty granted victory to Sultan by virtue of its Waseela and blessing!
In all the invasions of Sultan Mahmood Ghazanvi on Hindustan, the vital reason of his success and triumph had been the Inwardly power and Tawajuh of Allah's chosen personalities and there were some Aulia-Allah whom Sultan had taken along with him to Hindustan for his Spiritual Backing and left them here for the mission of the propagation of Islam. Hence, Hazrat Shaikh Ali Hajveri Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe, famous as 'Data Ganj Bakhsh' were also amongst those Mardaan of Lord whom Sultan had escorted with him and had left him for the Guidance of the Creation of God in Lahore.
The most destructive episodes of the unrest and havoc created by the invasions of the Tatars has no example to second it. It had burnt a huge fire of widespread cruelty and atrocity all over the earth which had been burning the entire cities and towns of the world like dry shredding of wood. It had eliminated and annihilated even the big powers of that time and this fire could not be extinguished by any sovereign. At last, this fire cooled down forever as a Karamat and a little marvel of setting of feet of Allah's two chosen persons: Hazrat Abu Yaqoob Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe and Muhammad Khawaja Darbandi Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe. Daily millions of the innocent men, women, children and elderly people used to roll in mud and blood of tyranny and all the beaten and broken and persecuted creature on the face of earth received the sigh of relief, peace and harmony by virtue of the presence and existence of these two pure and chosen bondmen of Lord.
Hulagu Khan was so much fierce and ruthless person that he was too much bloodthirsty of the human beings and his thirst for blood was not going to quench even after homicide millions of the human beings on daily basis and with just one poisoned goblet of these Mardaan e Khuda, his entire thirst for blood absolutely quenched and all the Tatar beasts along with their ferocious king, Halagu Khan, became cool and peaceful with the Water of Life of Islam and once again the world returned to the protection of Islam, peace of Eimaan and the shelter of Irfaan.
Halagu (or Halaku) Khan and all his Tatar lords and his army and people who had spread the flood of ruthlessness and atrocities and widespread homicide, were totally irreligious and faithless. When they had established their government, they decided to choose some Faith but wanted to test its truthfulness first. Since that was the time when no Messenger (of Allah) could be there to show them some miracle which could lead them to assurance of their hearts. Only option was of the Aulia-Allah who use to be the substitutes and the deputies of the Messengers. Halagu Khan heard the good name and praise of two Aulia of that time. They were Hazrat Abu Yaqoob Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe and Muhammad Khawaja Darbandi Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe. He decided that if these two distinctive personalities of Islam would match his criterion and touchstone he had set in mind, then he will accept Islam along with all of his people. Thus, these two respectable personalities were invited by Halagu Khan in his camp and in or test their spiritual mastery the truthfulness of Islam, he dug deep and wide ditches and arrangement were made to lit fire in these two big ditches so that fire be lit a short time before their arrival near the camp. When the said respectable Aulia came to his camp, the fire was burnt the flames of which soon rose to sky. Hazrat Abu Yaqoob Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe and Muhammad Khawaja Darbandi Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe hesitated not a little even and recited Bismillah and the Kalimah-e-Tayyeb Laaa-Ilaaha Ill-Allahu Muhammad-ur-Rasoolu-Allah/there is none worthy of worship except Allah, Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah (Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam) and jumped into fire. Halagu Khan was seeing this action from his pavilion. He saw them coming out of the furious flames of big fire unhurt and safe and sound. He was startled and started preparing another test and sat on his throne waiting their arrival inside the camp. Servants escorted both the Saints inside the court. Halagu Khan showed great respect and honor to them and served them with juices and seated them near his seat. These goblets of juice were poisoned with fatally toxic poison a drop of which is sufficient to invite death. He said 'you have crossed a heavy and hot fire. You must be thirsty. Please drink juice'. Thus, both the intrepid-devotee of the Course of Lord read Bismillah and drunk the juice. When Halagu Khan found them successful in both the trials, he and all his subjects and army accepted Islam on the hands of Hazrat Abu Yaqoob Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe and Muhammad Khawaja Darbandi Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe and embraced the Doctrine of Faith of the Haq!
