Glory of Shaikh Ibn `Ata Allah al-Iskandari
This picture is of tomb of Al Kamal bin Al Hamam. This great sufy Shaikh is buried in ‘Qarafa al Kubra’ in old Cairo near Maqam of Ibn Ataullah Al Iskendary. There is a well known incident on Shaikh Kamal. He was a constant visitor at Maqam of Ibn Ataullah AlIskendary. One day while he was reciting ‘Surah Al Hud’ at vicinity of the Maqam and when he reached the verse يَوْمَ يَأْتِ لاَ تَكَلَّمُ نَفْسٌ إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِهِ فَمِنْهُمْ شَقِيٌّ وَسَعِيدٌ (105 – The day it arrives, no soul shall speak except by his leave: of those (gathered) some will be wretched and some will be blessed) a voice in high tone came from Qabr of Ibn Ata (RA) saying that <يا كمال ليس فينا شقي> (Oh Kamal, there is no wretched among us)!
Shaikh Al Kamal bin Al Hamam then made wasiyya (وصية) to bury him near Shaikh Ibn Ataullah Al Iskendary (R.A). Now we can see this Qabr just close to Maqam and Musjid of Shaikh Ibn Ataullah AlIskendary (R.A).
