The myth attached to Qadam Sharif is that the great traveller and sufi Makhdoom Jahanian Jahan Gasht had brought the “qadam sharif”- the rock with the Prophet’s footprint to Delhi after an encounter with Prophet’s voice at Mecca. The Tughlaq king wanted the rock to be laid for his own grave but, Fateh Khan his beloved son died before him and it was used for his grave.
