SHĀH HUSAIN, a Muslim recluse said to have possessed high spiritual powers, was an admirer of Gurū Amar Dās. According to Sarūp Dās Bhallā, Mahimā Prakāsh, he once miraculously cured of genetic lameness a devoted Sikh whom Gurū Amar Dās had directed to him. When the Sikh fell at his feet to express his gratefulness, Shāh Husain would not take the credit and ascribed the miracle to the Gurū. He said, to quote the Mahimā Prakāsh, "Gurū Amar Dās, the benign Lord, has helped you. He himself does all, but bestows fame on us. Go, fall at his feet and pay him my respects."
