He passed away at the age of 88 in 1635. His devotees, which include both Sikhs and Muslims, visited the shrine, offered fateha and paid homage to the saint. Some devotees performed dhamaal, while others lit lamps. [caption id="attachment_1894597" align="alignnone" width="800"] A devotee photographed during the Urs in Lahore.
