OUR STAFF REPORTER GUJRAT - Hazrat Shah Daulah Daryaei was born in the second half of the 16th century, and he lived for some time at Sialkot. Then he settled at Gujrat, and is credited with various buildings, charitable work, teaching and counselling. Shah Daulah is said to have cared for wild creatures. Sometimes, women seeking a cure for infertility would come to Gujrat, hoping that the person would pray for them. After such prayers, some of these women were believed to produce chuas. In one version of the legend, the first child born after the holy mans prayer was a Chua or 'rat-child. Later, more Chuas were conceived, because other women saw one of the chuhas who was already there. Another version held that Shah Daulahs prayers led to the first child being a Chua, and by custom these were left at the shrine after they were weaned. Otherwise, people wanting a child would promise an offering, or dedicate the first-born to the shrine. If they failed to keep their promise, either the first-born would somehow be transformed at birth into a Chua, or later children would all be Chuas, until the parents paid. In a third version, all the first-born were Chuas. They became mentally disabled, and found their own way to the shrine, if their parents failed to present them. Tomb of Shah Daulah Peer is situated in east side of Gujrat city on a way to Chenab River. The shrine is the biggest shrine in Gujrat. Shah Daulah Peer was a descendent of Ibrahim Lodhi. Abdur Rahim was the name of his father and Niamat Bibi was his mother. He was born in 1554 AD (959 Hijri). Shah Daulah came in Gujrat in the 2nd half of 9th Hijri during the regime of Shah Jehan Mughal King. At that time Gujrat was only a very small town. But after the arrival of this saint, Gujrat became a dense populated city. Shah Daulah Peer was not only a saint but he was also very fond of social and welfare activities. He built a lot of bridges, mosques and inns. People came on Shah Daulah Darbar daily but on Thursday and Friday there is a big gathering there. There are many children of human beings at tomb with very small heads. They are called rat-children of Shah Daulah Peer. These days they are used to begging. There are very strange stories about these rat-children.
