The shrine of Sufi saint Jaan Mohammad Sahib located in Jammu - Kashmir Rajouri town is an abode of peace and tranquillity.
Every year thousands of people irrespective of their caste and community throng the shrine to commemorate the death anniversary or Urs of the Sufi saint, who throughout his life spread the message of oneness and brotherhood.
As a part of the celebrations, Sufi scholars and Imams sermoned the public about the life, religious services, teachings and spiritual strength of the saint who devoted himself to the welfare of people.
Community Kitchen or Langar was also set up to serve a meal to the devotees irrespective of their caste or community.
Forming an integral part of Indian ethos for the last several centuries, even today the Sufi traditions play an important role in the lives of the people and connote them with an understanding of the world in all its spiritual dimensions.
Wrapped up among the busy lanes of Srinagar city lies the Dargah of Sheikh Dawood Sahib. Hundreds of thousands of pilgrims throng this Dargah every day to bring forth the spirit of humanity and brotherhood among them. Recently, the Urs or death anniversary of the Sufi Saint was commemorated which was attended by devotees of all faiths who offered their prayers to the Sufi saint. Enlightening the atmosphere of Dargah during the Urs, prayers and hymns were sung in praise of Allah. As the saint used to serve food to the needy as his contribution to the society, devotees especially those living near to the shrine cook vegetables, eggs, sweets and other dishes on the day of Urs and invite their relatives for a feast. This feasting atmosphere can also be witnessed outside the shrine, where a number of people could be seen selling various eatables. The Dargah of Sheikh Dawood Sahib holds great significance as it welcomes people of all faiths to seek oneness with God and has been acting as a symbol of communal harmony for ages.
