Khoja Muhammad Arif Mohitoban Revgari Kuddisu Sirrikhu
Information about the mausoleum of Khoja Muhammad Arif Mohitoban Revgari, the 2nd piri of ancient Bukhara

Khoja Muhammad Arif Revgari was born in 560 AH, 1165 AD, in the village of Revgari in Shofirkan district of Bukhara province.  

Orif Revgari is also known as Mohitoban. Shafirkan was also called Mohitoban, glorifying it as the place where this great breed was born. Mohitoban, becoming the ruler of Arif-revgari, turned his hearts into a treasury of divine rays. These rays emanated from every cell of their bodies and glowed intensely. For Hodja Orif the provincial rank was so high that the cell into which this man entered would have been luminous. The "somat" says that the Kaaba overhangs the man's head and casts a shadow. 

Khoja Orif was born in the village of Revgar, was engaged in farming, all his life he lived in the village of Revgar.  

Khoja Orif preached Revgar-Zohid piety, arguing that the commemoration of God by excessive screams is contrary to Shariah.  

Dhikr khufiyya is a dish of enlightened people adorned with wisdom. Khoja Orif Revgari in "Silsilai Sharif" is considered the Piri murshid of the eleventh ring.

Information about Khoja Orif is contained in the works of the followers of the Naqshbandi teaching Abdurahman Jami (Nafahatul UNS), Alisher Navoi (Nasimul Muhabbat), Tahir Eshon(Tazkirai Naqshbandi).

"Orifnoma" by Khoja Muhammad Arif Revgari was translated into Persian-Tajik by Sadriddin Salim Bukhari and Israil Subkhani in 1994 and published for readers with a circulation of 75 thousand copies on 16 pages. The pamphlet contains words of wisdom that they themselves utter. Thirty-eight wisdoms from the wisdom of the Mashoids are also given. "The Orifnoma is, on the one hand, a work that teaches etiquette and the ways and means of perfecting the content of the Khojagon teachings, and on the other, it is a source that teaches the teachings of the great manifestations in the history of mysticism. "Orifnoma" contains information on Bayazid bastami and his disciple Abu Turab Naqshabi, Robii Adawiya, Hasan Basri, Shaqiq Balkhi, Malik Dinor and the Sufi Savri, Yahya Razi. Also in this work, Orif Revghari recounts the teachings, life journey, and final moments of his teacher, Abdulkhalik Gijduwani. Orif Revghari notes that "Be vigilant, time is sharp as a sword! And let not the Ainu(time) waste away and not delight in the illusions of others except the truth and Allah". With this teaching, Orif Revgari says that a Slave(human) must create Allah in his heart in order to attain the bliss of the two worlds.  The fifth teaching in the writings of Orif RevgarÄ« says, "Be a believer pure! For a black heart, an ugly soul defiles the whole member of the body! After all, it is because of whether Allah accepts us or not!" In this teaching, Orif Revgariy talks about the need to focus on the purity of the soul. For it is the soul-that holy bond that binds man to God, and it is in the heart that God looks and places his mercy, goodness, and light. The divine purpose-soul, which it has become, purifies the whole body and makes man a pure believer.      


In his "Orifnoma" the Lord says: "the signs of holiness are three: The first is to be humble, even while holding a high rank; the second is strength, patience - to sit on a diet until he becomes patient. The third is to make righteous until his strength is attained."


Hazrat Bahauddin Naqshband and other scholarly saints used and were educated by the writings of the "Orifnoma". Every sentence of the work, written more than 800 years ago in 622 A.D., 1225 A.D., is filled with wisdom, and every sentence with universal meaning.
The shrines of Khoja Arif AR-Revgari were restored in 1910 by the last emir of Bukhara Sayyid Amir Olimkhan.

Since the first years of independence in 1991 the area around the mausoleum of Khoja Arif was landscaped and a majestic complex of Shafirkan Khusni was created.

Today, such architectural complexes have become popular places of pilgrimage, not only among local people, but also among Muslims all around the world.

In accordance with President of Uzbekistan SH.Mirziyoyev's recommendations on the reconstruction of the "seven feasts" complexes in Bukhara and the opening of new tourist destinations in Bukhara, large-scale improvements and construction of additional buildings were started at the Khoja Arif sanctuary.  

During 2018-2019, the Khoja Arif AR-Revghari Mohitoban sanctuary was hashar, reconstructed and built according to a new modern design. The main entrance gate, the "Small", men's and women's toilets were built. A museum, library, reading room and administrative buildings were built. The water intake was rebuilt for the pilgrims. The shrine was walled off. A "fountain" was built in the center of the park and "Gazebo" (recreation areas) around it. The Khoja Arif AR-revgari Khazrats' rooms were renovated and surrounded by a four-sided porch. Jami mosque was repaired and equipped according to the requirements of the present time. A POIKENT hotel for 85 seats, a Mohitoban teahouse and a modern "parking lot" with comfortable conditions for visiting guests and pilgrims were also built around the shrine.
