Sarwari Qadri Order

Sultan Bahoo belongs to Sarwari Qadri order. He has discussed two off shoots of the Qadri order, Sarwari Qadri and Zahidi Qadri. This way flourished in the subcontinent due to Sultan Bahoo. He declares Sarwari Qadri order the actual and perfect Qadri way. He says about the Qadri way that:

Off Shoots


Sarwari Qadri Order


  • Qadri order has two off shoots; Sarwari Qadri and Zahidi Qadri. Spiritual guide of Sarwari Qadri order has perfect command over contemplation of Ism-e-Allah Zaat. When Sarwari Qadri spiritual guide blesses the seeker with the spiritual education and Divine guidance through Ism-e-Allah Zaat, spiritual guide of Sarwari Qadri order grants him the status equal to his own on the very first day. The seeker becomes indifferent and independent of all needs, his attention remains focused only on the Truth. Hence, gold and soil become equal for him. On the contrary, the follower of Zahidi Qadri order has to devote at least twelve years to very hard mystic struggles, so much so that his stomach remains empty. After twelve years, he becomes eligible to be present before Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani and attains the status of a spiritually lost devotee, while the status of a Sarwari Qadri is that of a beloved devotee (Kaleed-ul-Tauheed Kalan)


  • Qadri way is dominant over time and space. There are two off-shoots of Qadri way, the Zahidi Qadri and Sarwari Qadri order. What is the difference between the two? Sarwari Qadri order is the mystic way that is conferred upon me by the Holy Prophet. He took my oath of allegiance and commanded me to guide the men of Allah with spiritual courage. After blessing me with inward persuasion, he held my hand and entrusted me Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani. He also blessed me and ordered to give spiritual persuasion to people. By his grace, every seeker whom I guided thereafter, physically or spiritually, through the medium of Ism-e-Allah Zaat and Ism-e-Mohammad, was bestowed with the presence of holy assembly of Prophet Mohammad without any struggle or invocation. Then, there remained no veil between Allah and that seeker and he observed Ism-e-Allah Zaat wherever he looked. The Sarwari Qadri order is very beneficent and courageous. In the other mystic ways, some seekers were burnt to death by the blaze of Ism-e-Allah Zaat, some could not bear the burden of Ism-e-Allah Zaat and retreated while some apostatized and were cursed. (Ain-ul-Faqr)
  • What is the initial level of disciple of Sarwari Qadri order? It is that the perfect Qadri spiritual guide drowns the true seeker of Allah in the Divine light of gnosis of Allah and grants him the presence of Mohammadan Assembly just by his glance or by the contemplation of Ism-e-Allah Zaat or by the invocation of Islamic creed or by his spiritual attention. This is the first day lesson of the Qadri The spiritual guide who neither knows this lesson nor takes his disciples to the holy assembly is not the perfect Qadri spiritual guide. His state of spiritual ecstasy is just his vain thought. The true disciples of Sarwari Qadri order are eternally drowned in the Divine light of gnosis and union with Allah. (Kaleed-ul-Tauheed Kalan)


Sarwari Qadri order is the ocean of gnosis. Whoever enters this ocean and dive into Ism-e-Allah Zaat, he becomes Mystic. If the Sarwari Qadri disciple of specially Sarwari Qadri order joins another spiritual way, he becomes unlucky no matter how much glorious fate he has, thus he is accursed. It is a betrayal for Sarwari Qadri disciple to seek beneficence of any other spiritual way but it is important to mention that the disciple of other spiritual order can swear oath of allegiance in Sarwari Qadri order or disciple of man of recitals can take oath of allegiance on the sacred hand of man of Divine Essence.

Grandeur of Sarwari Qadri Order

It is named so because Sarwari means to pledge allegiance at the sacred hands of chief of the universe Prophet Mohammad and Qadri means to follow the path of Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani. Sultan Bahoo says:

  • Sarwari Qadri (one who swears allegiance on the hand of Murshid of Sarwari Qadri order)  is actually the one who pledges allegiance upon the hands of Prophet Mohammad. All the evils are removed from him and he is blessed with Divine favour to adopt the way of sharia of Prophet Mohammad. (Mehak-ul-Faqr Kalan)
  • The Sarwari Qadri order is free from the miseries of mystic struggles, forty days seclusions, and practice of holding breath, difficulties of initial levels, invocation and meditationSarwari Qadri order is free from saintly dresses or looks and bored from all mystic traditions like holding a stick or chaplet or wearing cloak and turban etc. The speciality of Sarwari Qadri order is that the perfect spiritual guide takes the seeker to the final stations on the very first day by granting him the sultan of invocation, contemplation of Ism-e-Allah Zaat and inscription of Allah’s name on the body. While the other mystic orders lack aforementioned blessings. That is why Sultan Bahoo says that the initial level of  disciple of Sarwari Qadri order is equal to the fina l level of other ways.
  • Sultan Bahoo says about Sarwari Qadri spiritual guide of: “spiritual guide is comprehensive and complete. Spiritual guide of Sarwari Qadri order is such a book, esoterically and exoterically, which has the status of ‘book of all the books’. By reading this book, the seeker annihilates in Allah in such a way that there remains no veil before him. (Kaleed-ul-Tauheed Kalan)

    عارف کامل قادری بہر قدر تے قادر و بہر مقام حاضر

    Meaning: Know! Perfect Mystic of Qadri order is omnipotent and omnipresent. (Risala Roohi Sharif)


  • The opponent of Qadri order is either a kharijite and dissenter or a liar and jealous or a cursed hypocrite. (Nur-ul-Huda Kalan)


Fake and Imperfect Qadri

Some evil and liars somehow manage to get succession in Qadri order (which is not Trust of Faqr rather worldly status of succession) by any tactic or relation (with perfect spiritual guide) or by means of family lineage. They betray people. They call disciples to earn money from them. You may have come across many such Qadri spiritual guide. Sultan Bahoo says about them:

  • Evil seekers who are betrayed by evil whispers and inciting innerself, they usually manage to get (worldly) succession of Sarwari Qadri order. Apparently they are successful in achieving their aim but in reality they are reprobate. (Nur-ul-Huda Kalan)
  • However, there are some satanic people surrounded in evil apprehensions who like the spies get the succession of Sarwari Qadri order through tricks and ruses. Apparently, their objective is fulfilled but in fact they are cursed esoterically. (Nur-ul-Huda Kalan)
  • Some people enter into Sarwari Qadri order like evil spy and mange to get khilafat of Sarwari Qadri order . They make their own identity and then claim with pride that they have authority to accept oath of allegiance in all spiritual orders. It is matter of disgrace and shameful for Qadri to go into other spiritual order. (Nur-ul-Huda Kalan)
  • Some evil people who are betrayed by evil whispers and ill baser self, they succeed to get (worldly) khilafat of Sarwari Qadri order by some mean. It seems that they are successful as they have accomplished their goal but in reality they are reprobate. (Nur-ul-Huda Kalan)
