There were seven Sacred Sufis of Bukhara in the Bukhara region. Following the ancient order, 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 started his path to Sufism very early, and at the age of 19 he was already teaching philosophy. His manuscripts "Nafahat ul-uns" and "Arinola" - are the only written evidence of the life of the famous Sufi. Hoja Arif Revgari was considered one of the most worthy follower of the traditions and practices of "Hadjagan".
The next is Hoja Mahmud Anjir Fagnavi. He was a famous Sufi of his time. Fagnavi was the spiritual successor of Sufi tradition. He earned his living having mastered the craft of a carpenter. Not far from the grave of the Saint, a beautiful mausoleum was erected, and 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 Hoja Azizona (Ali Romitani) – the wishmaster. He is known as Azizon - a Venerable Sheikh. He was born in 1195 in Kurgan and was engaged in the craft of weaving. Thanks to him, the Mongol khans converted to Islam, considering him a miracle worker.
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 here. Even today the burial place of the Saint Sufi is visited by thousands of pilgrims. After all, according to legends, if you touch his memorial three times, a visit to the Holy rest is equal to the "Hajj" in Mecca.
