Urs Sultan Bahoo
Tehreek Dawat e Faqr holds grand ceremony to celebrate
The Tehreek Dawat-e-Faqr (TDF) held a ceremony in the central office in Lahore on Thursday 30th January 2020 to commemorate the death anniversary of Sultan Bahoo (Urs Sultan Bahoo). The event was held under the auspicious supervision of Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman. He is the Patron-in-Chief and founder of TDF. He is the 31st and present Shaikh of the Sarwari Qadri order and the Universal Divine Man of the present era. Thousands of disciples and devotees from across Pakistan as well as from abroad attended this blessed event.
The head administrator of TDF, Malik Mohammad Naeem Abbas compered the event of Urs Sultan Bahoo. He first invited Maulana Mohammad Aslam to begin the session with Quran recitation. Maulana Mohammad Aslam read few verses from the Holy Quran and also presented an explanation of the meaning to the audience. The compere then invited Mohsin Raza Sultani on stage who read a beautiful eulogy in praise of the Holy Prophet (pbuh). Ata ul Wahab then presented a eulogy in honour of Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen.
This followed by Mufti Mohammad Farooq Zia’s keynote speech. In accordance with the occasion of Urs Sultan Bahoo, he delivered a comprehensive speech on the life history of Sultan Bahoo. During his address he described the grandeur of Sultan Bahoo and his tremendous efforts to revive the soul of Islam i.e. Faqr. Sultan Bahoo introduced and propagated the Qadri way in the Indian Sub-Continent as Sarwari Qadri. He left an unrivalled legacy in the form of his teachings. It is not possible for someone to appropriately describe Sultan Bahoo’s spiritual status. He is one of the seven Sultans of Faqr. In his Divine journal, Risala Roohi shareef, Sultan Bahoo says that the Holy Prophet had granted him the titles of Mustafa Thani and Mujtaba Akhir Zamani. The point to note here is that the titles Mustafa and Mujtaba are specific to the Holy Prophet. However, the fact that the Holy Prophet (pbuh) conferred these titles upon Sultan Bahoo is an indication of his extremely exalted spiritual level in the court of the Holy Prophet and Allah Almighty.
Langar at Urs Sultan Bahoo
Maulana Mohammad Aslam made final supplication for the continued progress and prosperity of TDF and the attendees before closing this blessed ceremony of Urs Sultan Bahoo. Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen inducted many devotees into the Sarwari Qadri order by taking oath on his sacred hand. He also met with devotees individually. Before parting away, the participants enjoyed a specially prepared langar (meal).
