Answer to Q. 5.
According to Allama Abdul Ghani Nabulusi (R.A.) and Hazrat Shah Sahib
Mohaddis Dehlvi the real intention behind offering of Nazar is its
utilization by Khadims of Sahib-e-Mazar. In furtherance to this the
abstract from Hadique-e-Nadiyya is also important to note that Nazar
should be utilized according to the will of that who offers the same. It
may therefore be concluded that Nazar should be spent essentially upon
the Khadims of Sahib-e-Mazar. If spent otherwise it shall not remain a
Nazar. And all knowledge is derived from Allah the great who knows and

6. Hazrat Allama Ahmed Raza Khan Fazile Barelawi has also confirmed that
acceptance of offerings at a Mazar (Shrine) is the right of its Khadims
and he has further emphasised that the kiths and kins of Saheb-e-Mazar
will not be the beneficiaries. (Fatwa-e-Rizwiyah, Vol. 4, P. 126,
Published by Sunni Darul Ishaat, Mubarakpur, Azamgarh, U.P.)
There is a general consensus among all theologians of four schools of
Islamic jurisprudence about accepting Nazar-o-Niyaz (offerings and
oblations) at any Holy Shrine is solely the prerogative of its Khadims.
The tradition of accepting Nazar-o-Niyaz by the pilgrims exists in its
pristine purity since the inception of the Holy Shrine of Khwaja Gharib
