There are seven Sacred Sufis of Bukhara in Bukhara region. According to the rules, the tour begins with the grave of Sheikh Abdul Abd al-Khalik Gijduvani, who founded the school of Central Asian Sufism. He always adhered to the rule that every Imam must have some kind of craft. Close to the dakhma Gijduvani is the Madrasah of Ulugbek, standing next to the new mosque, where pilgrims can pray.
Muhammad Arifa Ar Revgari early on the path of Sufism, and at the age of 19 he was already teaching philosophy. His manuscript "Nafahat ul-uns" and "Arinola" - the only written evidence of the life of the famous Sufi. Reading that, it becomes clear that the Hoja Arif Revgari was considered one of the most worthy follower of the traditions and practices of "Hadjagan".
Hoja Mahmud Anjir Fagnavi, he was a famous Sufi of his time. Fagnavi was the spiritual successor of Sufi tradition. Having mastered the craft of a carpenter, he earned his living. Not far from the grave of the Saint, a beautiful mausoleum was erected, a mosque with a well with Holy water was built nearby, where pilgrims often come to pray.
One of the most renowned spiritual mentors is a Hoja Azizona (Ali Romitani) – wishmaster. He is known as Azizon - a Venerable Sheikh. He was born in 1195 in the Kurgan and was engaged in the craft of a weaver. Thanks to him, the Mongol khans converted to Islam, considering them miracle workers.
Further the road leads to the grave of the great Sufi Bobo as Samosi, who predicted the birth of Bahauddin Nakshbandi. That’s what Bobo as Samosi said: "Quite soon his fragrance will spread around the world, and he will be "Mushkil gusha" - "resolving the difficulties." Today, the tomb of St. Babai Samasi is a place of worship for hundreds of thousands of Muslims from all over the world.
Mausoleum of said Amir al Kupol is located in the village of Suhor. The building is a mosque, mausoleum and flower garden. “Kupol” means "potter", it is this craft he knew perfectly.
This tour ends with a visit to Mausoleum of Bahauddin Naqshbandi, the birth of which was predicted by Bobo Samosi. Nakshbandi was born in 1318 in the village of Hinduwan. As a spiritual master, he was a proponent of asceticism. In his opinion, the Sufi had to earn his living exclusively by work. Bahauddin himself had several professions, he was a weaver, potter and metal carver. It was he who became an example to follow for many vagabonds, who, following his example, began to earn living by craft.
At present, there is a majestic mausoleum. Even today the burial place of the Saint Sufi is visited by thousands of pilgrims. After all, according to legend, if you touch his memorial three times, a visit to the Holy rest is equal to the "Hajj" in Mecca.
