Individuals from the village went for his or her pleas to this saint. Arif Kraal and Zooni too requested the saint for particular prayers of their favour. The God fearing Saint gave two candy candies every to Arif and his spouse Zooni. It was informed them that the male baby when born be given again to him after twelve years. After a while a male baby was born and so they named him Ismail. Precisely after twelve years identical saint visited once more their residence and renamed him as Socha and took him to Inder village of Pulwama.

It’s being revealed that when Socha Kraal was busy in making pottery at his native Inder village of Pulwam district, he often went to mosque for prayers.
Villagers of Inder had been displeased with this act of Socha Kraal and so they determined to not enable him to be buried in native graveyard after his demise. By some means this information reached Socha Kraal and he enquired from few villagers if this has been determined in his favour. They replied ” sure you’ve heard proper.”
Socha Kraal in his reply informed them ” you assume so about me however i do know what I’m. I’m one of many worst human beings on this planet. I’m not but so pure to face earlier than almighty throughout my prayers. As soon as I provided two Rakat Salah in mosque with you , i believe i’m nonetheless busy in these two rakats. As a result of the crux of Salah is far deeper and obscure. One who prays recurrently in mosque with utmost religion and perception cannot be a lier. He cannot be a cheater. He will not kill an harmless being and by no means be a flawed doer. After I introspect myself, I feel regardless of providing prayers I’m nonetheless a flawed doer”.
These are the divine qualities of nice saints via which they take into account themselves as little as mud particles.

Soi doud chum mei jigras.
Ander achthi kan mei deutmas dil kis sitaras,
