Pir Hasan Kabirdin, a son of Pir Sadr al-Din, lived in the fifteenth century, spending most of his life in the town of Uchch, to the south of Multan in modern-day Pakistan.
The tradition describes him as a man with a serious, forbearing outlook and great strength of character. He is reported to have been a holy man not just among his followers, but among other local communities.
Thus the Suhrawardi* Sufi order regarded him as one of their own Pirs. One of the Ginans attributed to Pir Sadr al-DIn is Dur desh this ayo vanzaro.
Listen to this Ginan at http://www.iis.ac.uk/view_article.asp?ContentID=105338, with an English translation of the selected verses.
* A Sufi named after its founder Shihab al-Din al-Suhrawardi (1154–1191)
