The intermediate realm… a conduit between the red earth and the blue sky… conveying the prayers of the living to the eternal being… a barrier separating the two worlds… a portal connecting them.


The soul of the saint resided in the luminous corridors… listening to the prayers of the faithful… comforting them with his ethereal presence… and when they left he supplicated the almighty to relieve them of their difficulties.

His existence transcending both life and death… in a world of dreams… his fingers counting on a tasbīḥ.


Note: You will see this gorgeous mosque while travelling from Hyderabad to Bidar, at its outskirts.
