Hamid Qalandar


Hamid Qalandar
   A disciple of Shaikh Nasir al-Din Chiragh Dehli, he compiled his preceptor's discourses, entitled Khayrul-majalis (Auspicious Conversations) in 1354. Hamid's father was a disciple of Shaikh Nizam al-Din Auliya. The nickname qalandar (a wandering dervish) was given to Hamid by the great shaikh himself. After migrating to the Deccan during Muhammad bin Tughlaq's reign (1325-1351), he remained there attached to Shaikh Burhan al-Din Gharib. Hamid returned to Delhi in 1353 and met Nasir al-Din Chiragh, which led to his compiling Khayrul-majalis a year later.
