Sultan-ul-Arifeen is the title of Sultan Bahoo which was bestowed to him by the grand Mohammadan Assembly to honour him for his services in Faqr (Sufism) which by Divine favour he performed with perfection. His name shines on the horizons of spirituality with all the might just like his predecessor Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani.
One thing should be kept in mind that fake items are imitated from original ones. Therefore many frauds come and go but the actual deserver and holder of the title of Sultan-ul-Arifeen has been dwelling in the hearts of people since birth because it is famous that his face was divine and whosoever see him would recite shahada there and then. Since he was young he has always been the symbol of Divine love and purity.
Like Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani revived Islam similarly Sultan-ul-Arifeen Sultan Bahoo revived his Qadri order and named it as Sarwari Qadri order. By the grace of Allah, his Sarwari Qadri order till date is pure of frauds and heresy. The present ‘spiritual’ heir of Sarwari Qadri order, Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman has made every possible effort to prosper it in the world and make spirituality common among people.
Sultan ul Arifeen Sultan Bahoo has written 140 books in the language of his age Persian which are a treasure chest for seekers of gnosis. His books discusses topics such as Divine vision, the Mohammadan Assembly, Divine love, Self Realization, gnosis of Allah, Inspiration, Waham, Ilm-e-Dawat and so much more. Sultan Bahoo’s famous book Kalam e Bahoo / Abyat e Bahoo is a loved piece of literature not only within but outside Islam as well. All teachings of Sultan Bahoo are beautifully stressed upon in rhythmic style.
The spiritual world is hidden from common eyes because it is only the pure eyes that deserve this sight.
The peak of spiritual blessings in Faqr (Sufism) are the Divine vision and the Mohammadan Assembly but the question is how to get there.
The answer is simple but quite unwelcome by many arrogant and naive people. The bayah (oath of allegiance) to the perfect spiritual guide and services performed in his court makes one earn the said exalted stations.
The perfect spiritual guide also grants a gold plated name of Allah written in Arabic for contemplation along with invocation of ‘Hoo’. The method is best described by the spiritual guide himself.
A journey of loving Allah then starts by the repeated remembrance of Hoo. It does not at all mean that a person has to live a monastic lifestyle . Rather he only has to be sincere and pure in his intentions to seek Allah only. This feeling of loving Allah and Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) above all is a miraculous one. It is a cherished feeling.
Sultan ul Arifeen Sultan Bahoo has quite clearly mentioned the spiritual marvels in his books such as Divine vision, Mohammadan Assembly, inspiration, unveiling, waham, ilm e dawat, jamiat, ghanayat and so much more. He made Sufism accessible through his teachings.
It has been observed that many people especially women by reading a book or from listening from others starts the invocation of ‘Hoo’ but as the method is never accurate, it is not effective at all. Sometimes with wrong pronunciation of words even reverse effects have been observed.
