The "Khadims" (Khuddam) Of Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz (R.A) History & Genealogical Trace. According to the references available in the authentic historical sources it is evident that a small batch of the pious followers had escorted Gharib Nawaz (R.A) on his mission. There number is said to be around 40 but one of them was certainly Hazrat Khwaja Syed Fakhruddin Ahmad Gurdezi (R.A) also known as Maulana Ahmad.
When Gharib Nawaz (R.A) proceeded for India , his Pee-o-Murshid (spiritual mentor) HAZRAT KHWAJA USMAN HARUNI(R.A) asked him to take one of his blood relation Hazrat Khwaja Syed Fakhurddin Ahmad Gurdezi (R.A) along with him. Hazrat Khwaja Syed Fakhurddin Ahmad Gurdezi (R.A) the Khadim-e-khas used to attend Hazrat Gharib Nawaz (R.A) throughout the day and night in and out, therefore, he and his descendants the present khadim community took pride and deemed it an honor to be called as "KHADIM" of Hazart Gharib Nawaz (R.A). Hazrat Khwaja Syed Fakhurddin Ahmad Gurdezi (R.A) stayed with HAZRAT KHWAJA GHARIB NAWAZ (R.A) upto his last breath and when HAZRAT KHWAJA GHARIB NAWAZ (R.A) kept himself busy in prayer and meditation or in seclusion for a number of days he looked after his affairs and management of Khankah and Langar Khana. HAZRAT KHWAJA SYED FAKHRUDDIN AHMAD GURDEZI (R.A) died in Ajmer , on 25th of Rajab 642 A.H. /1245 (nearly a decade after the "Wissal" death of HAZRAT KHWAJA GHARIB NAWAZ (R.A) and was buried as "Tosh-e-Khana" (Toshak Khana). His annual urs, is celebrated on the 25th Rajab, with all religious ceremonies by the Khuddam Khwaja Sahib (Syedzadgan).
The khuddam of Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaj (R.A) known as "Syedzadgan" trace their descent from Hazrat Khwaja Syed Fakhurddin Ahmad Gurdezi (R.A). Thus the ‘Khadims’ are performing their religious duties as their fore – fathers had done in the past . They served the Mazar-e-Pak (Shrine) and pray also on behalf of those unable to come to Ajmer and have faith in HAZRAT KHWAJA GHARIB NAWAZ (R.A) and are desirous of obtaining his blessings. Their rights to serve the shrine, to perform religious rituals and arrange spiritual functions and to receive all kinds of Nazar are hereditary and have also been judicially recognized.
The documentary evidences in the ‘Malfoozat’ (sayings) of Chishtia order and historical literature, Shahi Faramin, Sandals etc. (imperial orders) Jagirs, honors and rewards conferred upon them from time to time not only by Muslim Rulers but also many Hindu Rajas and Christians of India, which was also conferred by the British Government during their succeeding regimes indicate that they are the real custodians of the shrines, as the whole management, control of all the affairs, inside the tomb (Gumbad Mubarak) of the shrine , are exclusively in their hands, Although Khadims have faced a number of revolutions and changes of Government, but under all circumstances and worst political setup they kept themselves attached to the shrine and performed all their traditional duties and services.
