Sai Ram. Sai Baba of Shirdi was beyond all caste, creed and race and similar constraints and descriptions. Who told you that He was a Muslim by birth? He never told any one about His birth details and He never allowed any one to speculate. He was respected by all people of His time. An enlightened Master Sadgru has no name, no caste, no religion.

There is a great debate regarding the origin ofSai Baba. No one knows whether he was a Hindu or Muslim by birth. When he was only 16 years,Sai Baba came to Shirdi, a small village in Maharashtra. He took shelter in Khandoba temple where Mahalsapathi, a villager, regarded him as 'Sai' meaning sage. He resided in 'Dwarikamai', a dilapidated mosque, and led an ascetic life. With his teachings, he started attracting people who came to him in search of peace. There are miracles which are attributedSai Baba of Shirdi. He remained in Shirdi all throughout his life. He took his last breath while resting on a devotee's lap. People from different parts of India visit the Samadhi Mandir of Sai Baba in Shirdi.

He always uttered 'Allah Maalik' and 'Sabka Maalik Ek'
He lived his almost entire life in a Masjid.
He told his people to bury him and not to burn him after death.
He was seen many times reciting 'Al-Fatiha' - The first sura(chapter) of Holy Quran.
He never said 'I am God' or 'Worship Me'

It is upto you to decide now

Shirdi Sai Baba was a true , great saint . He could recite Bagawath Geetha and Holy Qumran backwards and that does not denote anything . Attributing Hindu or Muslim faith on him will be a blaspheme of God himself . All Hindus should gladly accept him as a Muslim and all Muslims should equally be happy to accept him as a Hindu . That is the true appreciation of a great saint by humanity .
