The followers of the saint arrive here not only from the States of Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Rajasthan but also from abroad. Thousands of followers and devotees converge at the shrine during the annual Urs, which is celebrated on the 27th day of Moharram, the first month of the Muslim calendar. Many devotees seek blessings of the saint to have their wishes fulfilled.

This is called 'mannat' and generally, the devotees come to the shrine again to express their gratitude after their wishes are fulfilled. Before the Urs ceremonies begin, the tomb is decorated with flowers and lit up with lamps. The Urs is initiated with mass prayers and recitation of the Holy Quran. A devotional gathering called 'majlis' is held wherein songs are sung in praise of the saint.
