This web page is about Sultan Bahoo Silsila and Sultan Bahoo religious school of thought. This article is well researched under the supervision of Sultan ul Ashiqeen

As far Sultan Bahoo religious school of thought is concerned Sultan ul Faqr Sultan Bahoo was a Sunni Muslim. Infact  Sultan Bahoo religious school was that of Imam Abu Hanifa’s school of thought.


Sultan Bahoo religious school

If we talk about Sultan Bahoo religious school then he himself says:

  • I follow Imam Abu Hanifa. As he was a Mystic with pure inward and ever remained free of polytheism, infidelity and heresy of music. (Kaleed-ul-Tauheed Kalan)


Sultan Bahoo Silsila

In the first place, the Sultan Bahoo Silsila is Sarwari Qadri.  Therefore, in all his books he has declared himself Qadri. Also he elaborates the excellence and ultimate spiritual beneficence of leader of all Saints, Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani, from whom this order continues. Therefore, Sultan Bahoo Silsila also dominates over all other mystic orders. Now Sultan Bahoo has discussed two off shoots of the Qadri way; Sarwari Qadri and Zahidi Qadri and he belonged to the former. Moreover Sultan Bahoo says about these two offshoots in many of his works. For example in Kaleed-ul-Tauheed Kalan and Ain-ul-Faqr He says:


Kaleed-ul-Tauheed Kalan

  • Qadri order has two off shoots; Sarwari Qadri and Zahidi Qadri. However, Sarwari Qadri spiritual guide has perfect command over contemplation of Ism-e-Allah Zaat. Hence, he blesses the seeker with the spiritual education and Divine guidance through Ism-e-Allah Zaat. Moreover grants him the status equal to his own on the very first day. Due to which the seeker becomes indifferent and independent of all needs. All in all 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. Then he attains the status of a spiritually lost (majdhub) devotee. While the status of a Sarwari Qadri is that of a beloved devotee. (Kaleed-ul-Tauheed Kalan)

Dominance of Sultan Bahoo Silsila

  • The Qadri way (that is Sultan Bahoo Silsila) is dominant over time and space. Now there are two off-shoots of Qadri way, the Zahidi Qadri and Sarwari Qadri order . What is the difference between the two? As Sarwari Qadri (which is the Sultan Bahoo Silsila) is the mystic way that is granted to me by the Prophet. Since he took oath of allegiance from me and commanded me to guide the men of Allah with courage or tawakkal. After blessing me with inward persuasion, he held my hand and entrusted me to Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani. Similarly he blessed me and ordered to give spiritual persuasion to people. Now 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 the Mohammadan Assembly 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. Hence, the Sarwari Qadri order is very beneficent and courageous. On the contrary, in other mystic ways, some seekers burn to death by the blaze of Ism-e-Allah Zaat. Some could not bear the burden of Ism-e-Allah Zaat and retreats. While some are apostatized and cursed. (Ain-ul-Faqr)



Sultan Bahoo Silsila is Sarwari Qadri. It is unanimously accepted that Sultan Bahoo silsila is has superiority over all other mystics ways. Infact Sultan Bahoo Silsila has its superiority because it is the mystic way of Ghaus-e-Azam Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani.
