Chilla-e-Makoos or Chilla-e-Namaz (also spelled Chilla-i-Makus‎) is an inverted chilla which is undertaken hanging upside down. This is a difficult mujaheda (striving) in which the body is suspended upside down by means of a rope, often in a well, the dervish remaining in this position all night. Hazrat Fariduddin Ganjshakar is reported to have been one of the first saints to have performed Chilla-e-Makoos. Hazrat Naushah Ganj Bakhsh, founder of the Naushahi branch of the Qadri order, is also reported to have often performed this arduous exercise.
