Inverted chilla, 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 the first saint 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.
