Ancient Graves in Gujrat

Ancient Graves in Gujrat
It is believed and argued by many archaeologists and historians that the area of Gujrat is from ancient times. This area is present since the times of Adam and Eva (Hadhrat Adam and Hadhrat Hava). It is also said that after Toofan-e-Nooh (Tsunami of Nuh), the area of Himaliya Mountains and Kashmir is the first place which came out from water. As the Gujrat is a neighbor district of Kashmir, so it has also very old civilization.
There are graves of different Messengers of Allah (as believed by local people), sons of Messengers of Allah and other saints of Islam (Sufis) are found in Gujrat. Some of them are as follows:
  • Grave of Hadhrat Qanoot (Kanoot): It is the longest grave found in Gujrat. Its length is 70 yards. But its length varied from time to time. Every year, on Urs the length is measured which sometimes is less than 70 yards and sometimes more than 70 yards. This grave is situated in an boundary village of Gujrat, Barrila Sharif. Hadhrat Qanoot was the son of Hadhrat Adam (a.s.) but some people also told that he was the son of Hadhrat Nuh (a.s.)
  • Grave of Naqeeb Toosh is in Mota Village of Gujrat. And Grave of Sultan Qainoosh in Manawar Village of Gujrat. They were sons of Hadhrat Yusaf (a.s.).
  • Grave of Filsanosh in Chhamb and grave of Salwadosh in Deva village of Gujrat. They are the sons of Hadhrat Daoud (a.s.).
  • Grave of grandson of Hadhrat Yousaf (a.s.) in Shaikh Choghani (Chogani) Gujrat.

  1. I think that nothing can be said for quite certain that either all these graves belong to those pious people or not. They may or may not but I think that building shrines on such graves is still not permissible in Islam.
