Tawaswswul at the Maqam of Imam al-Bukhari (r.a.)

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam adz-Dzahabi (r.a.) wrote, in his Siyar al-A’alam an-Nubala’, that once, there was a drought in Samarqand.  People tried their best; some performed swalah al-istisqa’ but still it did not rain.  A renowned saint, known as Swalih (q.s.), went to the qadhi and suggested they go to the maqam of Imam al-Bukhari (r.a.) in Khartank and ask for his intercession.  The qadhi agreed, and much of the town, including its important personages, went to the maqam.  He qadhi lead the du’a, and people started to cry near the grave and started to make him a wasilah.  Allah (s.w.t.) immediately Granted their du’a and the rains came.  The people stayed in Khartank for about seven days; none of them wanted to return to Samarqand although the distance between Samarqand and Khartank was only 3 miles.
