The Hindu Aashiq-e-Rasool !

This is quite an old incident of a man in India. His name was Dillo Ram. He was a very famous Hindu poet. 

One day his fellow hindus said, "Oh Dillo Ram, whats wrong with you, are you gone mad? you are a hindu and how come you praise the Prophet of Islam???". Dillo Ram sighed and said, "Please dont stop me, I have fallen in love with Bibi Fatima's baba!"

He wrote many poems in praise of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w), and one went like this. He says:

There is no condition that you have to be Muslim to love prophet Muhammad (s.a.w).
If somebody hides the sun and moon in his lap,
If someone with their hands picks the stars collects them!
If somebody lifts the entire treasure's of the world and puts it on his hands,
And then if somebody asks me what do you want?
Do you want sun, moon, stars, the entire treasuere of the world?
Then I shall say that all I want is to put the shoes of Muhammad (s.a.w) on my eyes!!

His naats caused uproar amongst Hindus, that one of the most famous Hindu poets of his time was doing this!!

His love got unbearable and increased as each day passed. He one day put a chain around his neck and feet and stood in the middle of Delhi Bazaar and said, "Listen, listen, oh my brothers and sisters, listen, oh my fellow humans, listen!!!"

He stood on a high place in the market and shouted from the top of his voice; 

"YA MUHAMMAD (s.a.w)!!,
Yes Muhammad (s.a.w) is the love of Allah,
Muhammad (s.a.w) is the first and only Love of Allah,
If Allah loved you,
He loved you because of His Beloved!!
Muhammed (s.a.w) is the Sultan!!
He is the greatest of the greats!!
he is the King of kings!!"

He actually done this on a regular basis, it is said people even stoned him, and he would come home covered in blood! Despite all this, he would continue proclaiming the name of Muhammad (s.a.w).

His death approached him in later life, and he was in a very poor condition, and everyone knew he was breathing his last breaths! And all of a suddenly Dillo Ram got up and ordered for all of his relative to stand too.

Dillo ram started reciting the poetry he had written, with his head lowered; ALLAH O AKBAR! The Holy Prophet (s.a.w) had come to a hindu!!!

Dillo Ram fell to his knees and said "what brings you, Oh my Beloved ?" The Holy Prophet (s.a.w) said, "Listen, malaikul maut (angel of death) is approaching and I cannot bear to see my naatkhawn (reciter of naat) go to hell, so I urge you read the kalima (testimony of faith) and become muslim and I shall take you to heaven on the day of reckoning"

Dillo Ram read the kalima and hence became a Muslim from the source of Islam! He then said "Ya Rasoolallah (s.a.w), now that you have made me Muslim, can you give me an Islamic name?" and he was named KAUSAR ALI KAUSARI..
SubhanAllah.. what a beautiful name!
