Thousands of devotees and followers congregate at the shrine during the annual Urs, to pay their homage and seek blessings of the saint to have their wishes fulfilled. Seeking blessings for a wish is called 'mannat' and it is customary to visit the shrine again and express gratitude after the wish is fulfilled. People offer sweets, fruits, cash, coconut and jaggery at the shrine.
During urs, the tomb is ornamented with flowers and lamps. The Urs is
commenced with mass prayers and recitation of 'Holy Quran'. A devotional
gathering called 'majlis', a melodious event where songs are sung in
praise of the saint. There is a free community lunch where all the
devotees can participate. The Dai-ul-Mutlaq, who is the religious head
of the community, heads the ceremonies of the Urs.
