Sultan ul Faqr
This website reveals the grandeur of seven Sultan-ul-Faqr souls whom Sultan Bahoo has mentioned in his treatise Risala Roohi Sharif. It is the Divine revelation sent to Sultan Bahoo, the eminent Saint known worldwide. This website presents short biography of Sultan ul Faqr souls and describes their services to benefit the Muslims with Mohammadan Faqr. Hereby, we also explain splendour of these souls so that Muslims may find closeness to Allah following their path, Faqr. Faqr is the true heritage of Prophet Mohammad sall’ Allahu alayhi wa’alihi wasallam and the soul of Islam. It is the path that leads to presence of Mohammadan Assembly and consequently to the Divine closeness and vision.
Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman, the 31st Shaikh of Sarwari Qadri order has established Tehreek Dawat-e-Faqr to spread the message of Faqr. This Tehreek invites Muslims towards seeking closeness of Allah and strengthening their spiritual relationship with Allah. That is possible only after getting sanctity of innerself through attention and company of perfect spiritual guide (Murshid Kamil, Shaikh).
In short, our main aim is the revival of strong spiritual relationship of Muslims with Allah. Lack of this connection has resulted in present worst condition of Muslims all over the world. We aim at diverting the attention of Muslims from hollow superficial physical prayers towards the purity of soul. Thus, creating strong bond between Allah and His slave. As a result, a common Muslim elevates to a Momin (true believer) and becomes beloved of Allah and Holy Prophet.
SIGNIFICANCE OF SULTAN UL FAQR SOULS
Faqr is infact the Divine light (Nur) which perfectly manifested in the human form of Prophet Mohammad. After physical life of the Holy Prophet, the seven chosen souls manifest Divine light in material world in human form. Hence, they carry on the heritage of Faqr of the Holy Prophet. Therefore, their title is Sultan ul Faqr (Sultan of Faqr). These souls absorb the Divine light with such intensity and perfection that they attain Divine Oneness (Tawhid). Even the material bodies of these pure souls in which they appear in the world are absolute light. As, their beginning, their annihilation and their immortality is with Allah. Above all, they are ever drowned in the fathomless ocean of Divine beauty (jamal) and engrossed in Allah’s vision (deedar).
The Perfect Spiritual Guide
Founder of Tehreek Dawat e Faqr
The perfect spiritual guide Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib ur Rehman is the 31st sultan of Sarwari Qadri chain. Also, he is the heir of treasure of Faqr and custodian of Divine Trust in the contemporary era. Prophet Mohammad has ultimate authority upon the treasure of Faqr. In the first place, he passed this treasure to Hazrat Ali karum Allah wajhul kareem, the gateway to Faqr. Then Hazrat Ali transferred it to Hasan of Basra razi Allah anhu for the beneficence of Muslim umma. This order then continued and the Trust reached Sultan Bahoo rehmat-ul-Allah alayh from al-Ghawth al-Azam Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jillani. Finally, at 31st stage, Sultan-ul-Faqr VI Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali has entrusted it to Sultan ul Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib ur Rehman.
He adorned the throne of 31st Shaikh of Sarwari Qadri order in 2003 after permission from the Holy Prophet. Hence, continued to spread the message of Faqr after the death of his Murshid Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali. Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman officially started granting Ism-e-Allah Zaat and accepting oath of allegiance on 14th of August, 2005. Thereafter, he established Tehreek Dawat-e-Faqr to spread the teachings of Faqr and invite Muslims towards purity of soul. The organization particularly aims at spiritual elevation of Muslims so as to improve their life in both worlds.
REVOLUTIONARY STEPS BY SULTAN UL ASHIQEEN
Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman has made great efforts and taken revolutionary steps to spread the wealth of Faqr among Muslims. Earlier, the spiritual guides used to grant invocation (zikr) of Ism-e-Allah Zaat in four stages; AllaHoo اَللّٰہُ, Lillah (لِلّٰہ), LaHoo (لَہُ) and Hoo (ھُو). The disciple would get the king of invocations, Sultan-ul-Azkar Hoo (ھُو) after passing all the basic stages. It was a long process and required a lot of time and hard work. However, Allah has blessed Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman with great spiritual powers. Therefore, he gives his disciples the king of invocations Hoo on the very first day of allegiance. He never puts his disciples in hard mystic exercises and purifies them inwardly just by his powerful spiritual sight.
Furthermore, he gives them printed or pure gold Ism-e-Allah Zaat for contemplation (tasawur). The invocation of Hoo and contemplation of Ism-e-Allah Zaat elevate the seekers to closeness of Allah most quickly. Thereby, the true seekers of Allah attain vision of Allah and presence in the Mohammadan Assembly. Afterwards, Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen grants them contemplation of Ism-e-Mohammad for further spiritual elevation. This is being done for the first time in history of Faqr and is just in accordance with the teachings of earlier Saint.
SULTAN UL AZKAR HOO AND ISM E MOHAMMAD
Shaikh-e-Akbar Allama Ibn-e-Arabi says;
- Hoo is the extreme and most elevated invocation of the Mystics (Arifeen). (Al-Futuhat Al-Makkiyya).
Sultan Bahoo says;
- The invocation of Hoo is the extreme stage invocation (zikr) of invokers. (Nur-ul-Huda)
Similarly, Sultan Bahoo says about the effects of contemplation of Ism-e-Mohammad, the sacred name of Mohammad:
- Contemplation of Ism-e-Mohammad reveals the reality of Divine knowledge. (Kaleed-e-Jannat)
- When a devotee contemplates Ism-e-Mohammad, no doubt, the Holy Prophet and his Companions come to him spiritually. The Holy Prophet says to him “Hold my hands”. The very moment he holds the hands of Holy Prophet, his soul is enlightened with the gnosis of Allah. (Kaleed-e-Jannat)
