Ziarat Kakasahib (RA) – The Land of the people of “The Yellow Flower”

Ziarat Kakasahib – A peaceful, beautiful, loving and holy place to live or to visit. It is named after a very pious saint of the muslim history, Sheikh Rehamkaar kakasahib.

Kakasahib(Rehmatullah Alaih) is known by many different and beautiful names :

  • Kastheer Gul
  • Sheikh Rehamkaar
  • Ziarhee kaka and of course
  • Kakasahib
We will be using the word “kakasahib” throughout this post.
Kastheer was the real name of kaka sahib(RA). Kastheer means “A yellow Flower” and the “GUL” was added by the local residents or the people with whom kakasahib (RA) interacted because of his lovely and kind nature towards them.

And as far as I know about relations, the people who you love the most, you call them with different names to express your love and affection towards them. Like, for example, “You are my friend, brother” etc. Same was the case with the people of Ziarat Kakasahib.  Due the kindness and generosity of kakasahib, people also called him Rehamkaar or Sheikh Rehamkaar which means “The one who does the acts of kindness”.

The third name or alias, Ziarhee kaka, was given to him due to his pale and yellowish physical complexion. Ziarhee, here, means the yellowness of something.

Kastheer – (The yellow flower) and Ziarhee kaka. SubhanAllah!

“Kakasahib” is the mostly used name of Kakasahib. We, being pukhtoons, call our elders by the name “Kaka”, to show respect . Here, the word Kaka means the one who is elder. And “sahib” was added by the people which means “The honourable”. The name “Kakasahib” got so popular that his successors are now called  KAKAKHELS“.
