Muhammad had many followers from amongst the Arabsfrom many different tribes. However, he also had many non-Arab Sahaba, from many different ethnicities. Some of these non-Arabs were among the most beloved and loyal individuals to Muhammad. The inclusion of these non-Arabs among the original followers of Muhammad and Islam represents the universality of the message of Islam.

The blessings received are priceless. I would totally recommend anyone visiting this beautiful city not to leave without doing ziyaret of the blessed Sahabe.

His words were poetic, translated with great care from Turkish by Hakan, who was amazing. Many thanks for a memorable day.What a magnificent fort, rising out of the surrounding Cholistan desert!
Visible for miles. This is a magnificent extensive fort in Bahwalpur, Rohi Cholistan desert, owned by the Abbasi This is one of the most impressive structures in the area which dwarfs other Nawab Palaces in architecture. The best time to visit is sunrise or sunset when it glows golden in the sunlight. A decent quality road leads here. En route, is farmland and some wilderness. I saw a beautiful monitor lizard on the roadside.
Most of the fort is in dilapidated state but is actively being renovated. There is an impressive mosque nearby, burial grounds of Nawabs could not visit as perhaps public is not allowed in the burial grounds. Another attraction, approximately half a kilometer is graves attributed to Sahaba Prophet Muhammad's companions.
Made out of millions of bricks it is a formidable structure and definitely worth the drive to visit. On the outside it looks its most impressive - sadly, the inside offers a different view : neglected, dilapidated and crumbling. When we were there, we were the only tourists, so it is a unique photo-opportunity.
This place should be a major tourist attraction, but I fear that it will become an unstable pile of bricks unless serious preservation efforts are started urgently. I have only visited the fort once but since then I have been in awe of this huge structure.
It's beautiful architecture is not just a piece of art but every nook and corner of the fort takes you back in time when the fort was fully inhabited by its occupants. Let it be the mysterious underground prisons or the rooms of the habitants, each part narrates its own story. Not to forget the beautiful graveyard of the Nawabs. My only concern was the restoration of this important building in the region.
Government hasn't done much about it therefore few parts of the fort need to be avoided due to safety concerns. As the building is very old. One of my many wishes is to see this fort in moonlight I am sure it will look magical weaving tale of its own! What a gem!!!!!!! This is by far the best fort so far.What a magnificent fort, rising out of the surrounding Cholistan desert!

Desert camping On Derawar - Derawar Fort
The best place for camping to enjoy with friends and family. I have visited this place more than 10 time but everytime when am visit am so much exited to be there. Dewrawar fort the best historical place to visit. Fantastic Architect, Must visit place. Derawar Fort, to the southeast, on the edge of the Cholistan Desert, makes an exciting day's outing from either Ahmedpur East or Bahawalpur.
The massive fort towers over the surrounding semi-desert and is visible from miles around. The huge walls, supported by enormous round buttresses, stand 40 metres feet high and are 1. It protected the ancient trade route from central Asia to the Indian subcontinent. The site was captured by the Abassi family from Raha Rawal Singh of Jaisalmer inat which time the present fort was built. The whole area around Derawar was once well watered by the Ghaggar River now called the Hakra in Pakistan, and known in ancient Vedic times as the Sarasvati.
Along the kilometres of the dry river bed are over Archaeological sites, most dating back to the Indus Civilization. In the 18th century 12, people lived in the y own below the fort walls. Until Derawar was watered by a canal, but later, under a new international agreement, water from Sutlej River was diverted to India and Derawar was abandoned.
Now the old canal has been cleaned and new canals have dug and you can see farmland surround Derawar, and a paved road has been connected to Ahmedpur East. The fort is more impressive from outside than in. It is a Worth seeing fort. You can also visit some other historical monuments just like White marble mosque in front of the fort was built in for the Nawab's personal holy man, Pir Ghulam Farid. The marble and blue tiled tombs of the nawabs and their families lie a few hundred metres to the east of the fort.
There is also the elegantly domed marble tomb of the last nawab's English wife.Next day was me alone and Bahawalpur. The first destination was Derawar Fort. Early morning I went to Dera Nawab, almost an hour from Bahawalpur, where I had to meet a friend from armed forces, as he was free that day Sunday. We planned to go inside the palace on our return so we moved straight towards Derawar Fort. The road is damaged at some places and not as good as other roads, but any car can travel on it.
It was almost an hour or a few minutes more, that we reached Derawar Fort, through desert, corn fields and small villages. The fort is quite large. There was a model of fort in the museum from which I knew about the structure and it was evident that the outer wall was gone but only few parts of it remained. As you enter through the first wall entrance, via the broken gate, the main fort comes in.
The inner walls are not that destroyed apart from bricks falling from the base. The main entrance to the main fort is through a small door on the gate. Special permission from the Nawab family has to be acquired in order to go inside the fort, which can also be acquired through PTDC motel.
Once you enter the main fortress, the interior looks quite damaged. It looks like no maintenance or care has been taken of the fort for decades as the bricks lay down and walls are damaged. There are different sections inside, on the far right are the remains of the offices as people saybefore them comes the residential area which, though quite damaged, still has a lot to see in the form of wood-work and art-work on the ceiling and walls.
Then comes the small Masjid mosquedamaged but the beauty is still prominent. Another interesting thing is the underground tunnel, as most of the forts used to have in those days. After the fort we visited the graves of the four companions of Holy Prophet p.
I wanted to know more about when they came but the only information there was of their time spent with the Prophet p. Then the last stop in the desert was of Nawab Graveyard. Beautiful buildings are made for all the dead from the Nawab family, with subtle art-work, worth seeing. The whole compound gives a beautiful look.
But the art on the building is worth having a look. So I shot some pictures from the entrance. The architecture of all the buildings and palaces, made during the Abbasi period, have the same design, especially the upper portion.
This includes the library, Sadiq Garh palace, Noor Mahal. These are the ones I saw, there would be others too.
After returning to Dera Nawab, I took a local Hiace Van, which took a very small amount for the fare and took more than an hour due to the stops, till Bahawalpur City. In day light it looked more beautiful. You can roam around or just have a look, relax in the garden but the palace is restricted to visit, from inside.
The zoo has a wide variety of animals but it was being renovated in those days.Tariq continued to be the leader of the SSP until his death on 6 Octoberat the hands of gunmen who fired bullets into the vehicle he was travelling in with four others ibid.Images show mass burials at NYC public cemetery
