  1. Assalam o Alaikum.

    My name is Anwari Begum Rajabalee, of Mauritian Nationality. I have visited Dargah Baba Haji Ali (R.A.) in the year 2002 and I was deeply touched by its peaceful environment. So many years have been elapsed since then, the Dargah is still fresh in my mind. This year, since a few months ago, I have taken the firm decision to come again and to settle near the Dargah forever. Yours views is sought whether there is a possibility for me to get a room nearby for staying and may I be of great help to you.

    Looking forward in hearing from you and thanking you.
