With calm face Ramadevar replied “I am a Sadhu, I have come here to research on auspicious herbs available here, peoples from any religion are same for me”. Ramadevar was converted to Muslim and was named as Yacob. Taking it as an order from Ambal, Yacob accepted it.
In few years, Yacob gained every ones Love and confidence by the way he communicated to the people. Yacob started to wear clothes like Arabians, went to Nabigal Naayagam’s samadhi and prayed him daily. Once Yacob got the dharshan of Nabigal Nayagam. Nabigal Nayagam preached Yacob and blessed him.
