10). Shrine & Perimeter Walls’ repeated collapse:

A short time after the martyrdom of Syed Wilayat Ali Shah in 1844 AD an opulent Muslim took upon himself to construct a shrine for the great soul. After all the planning was done, this gentleman died before the construction ever actually started. Thereafter, his son decided to fulfill his father’s mission to start the construction and just like his father he died the night before the construction could commence. After a short while another local Muslim was able to construct the perimeter wall and the walls of the shrine; unfortunately, before he could complete the roof of the shrine he died as well following by the shrine walls as well as the perimeter walls plummeting by itself. Time passed and a fourth person decided to erect the shrine again and low and behold the second night after completing the construction this person dies as well following a repeat of the plummeting of the shrine as well as the perimeter wall.

It was after the fourth death that the natives of Hathala reported multiple dreams with Syed Wilayat Ali Shah stating

“Do not build the shrine perimeter or a roof over the shrine walls. This is the task assigned to my sons and they will be the one who will do so”.

Nobody had the courage to go against the will of Syed Wilayat Ali Shah and thus the people of Hathala gave up on the idea of building a perimeter wall or a roof over the shrine anymore. This state of open skies continued for a long 142 years.
