A SHORT BIOGRAPHY OF HIS HIGHNESS
HAZRAT SULTAN UL ARIFEEN HAZRAT SULTAN UL FAQAR
HAZRAT SULTAN BAHU
MAY ALLAH SANCTIFY HIS SECRET
Islam has come and shone in the Sub-continent of India because of the remarkable efforts of our Honorable Sufi Saints. The attractive features in the preaching done by these Saints had been their high character, piety, universal love, sincere intention and their devotional attachment with the ways of life and worship as demonstrated by the Noble Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Sall-Allahu Alaihi Wa Aalihee Wassallam. These things earned everlasting appreciation and acceptance amongst all classes of the local community and because of the aforementioned features, hundreds of thousands of people embraced Islam.
The all-blessed personality of Sultan ul Arifeen Hazrat Sultan Bahu Rahmatullah Alaihi bears a unique status amongst the abovementioned Chosen Personalities of the Lord. Even after three centuries, his Sufi Poetry fills the heart of people with the Ishq of God even today. Particularly in this era of unrest and turmoil, his blessed corpus not only has the balm of the peace of heart but also has the eternal message to return on the course of truth and genuineness.
Hazrat Sultan Bahu Rahmatullah Alaihi was born in a village near Shor Kot in 1039 Hijra (1621 AD). He led a life of orphanage in his teen years. However, his respectful mother Hazrat Bibi Raasti Rahmatullah Alaiha, who was a virtuous and righteous lady and her bosom was full with the Noor of the Tauheed, brought his highness in such a way that he rose in the world like a shining sun. All of his life was spent in travelling and sightseeing and in anonymity. He always hid himself from the people and whenever, due to the overflow of the Tajalliyaat of the Anwaar of Zaat (the Essence), some Karamat took place by him unintentionally; his highness used to leave that place to somewhere else so that the people approaching should not disturb his commemoration of Haq and the worship of the Lord!
