Sultan ul Arifeen Sultan Bahoo

Welcome to the exclusive and comprehensive website on both the biography and teachings of Sultan-ul-Arifeen Sultan Bahoo.

Sultan-ul-Arifeen Sultan Bahoo was not just any Saint but the most accomplished one of the 17th century as he is stationed at the grand status of Sultan-ul-Faqr V. He introduced the Sarwari Qadri branch, an off shot, from the Sufi order known as Qadri order. Moreover, it is important to mention that Qadri order belongs to al-Ghawth al-Azam Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani.

Title Sultan-ul-Arifeen

Sultan Bahoo is famous by the title of Sultan-ul-Arifeen among all the Saints and Mystics. Sultan-ul-Arifeen literally means ‘Sultan of Mystics’.

Claimants of the title Sultan-ul-Arifeen

When Sultan Bahoo became famous in the world by the title of Sultan-ul-Arifeen, some fake guides and fraudulent ones all over the world, especially in the sub-continent and Jammu and Kashmir, started using this title with their names. Followers and devotees of some Saints also attached this title with that Saint’s name. It should clearly be understood that the title Sultan-ul-Arifeen is specific only for Sultan Bahoo. Only he truly and factually deserves and owns this title, others are just imitators.

Khanqah Silsila Sarwari Qadri

Allah says in Quran:

فِیۡ  بُیُوۡتٍ اَذِنَ اللّٰہُ  اَنۡ تُرۡفَعَ وَ یُذۡکَرَ فِیۡہَا اسۡمُہٗ ۙ یُسَبِّحُ لَہٗ  فِیۡہَا بِالۡغُدُوِّ وَ الۡاٰصَالِ ﴿ۙ۳۶﴾

“Such houses as Allah has ordained to exalt and remember His Name (Ism-e-Allah Zaat) therein. (These are the houses) in which (Allah’s men) invoke Him morning and evening.” (An-Nur 36)

In this verse houses mean khanqahs. Here seekers of Allah, day and night, busy themselves in invoking His name. It results in spiritual purification and strengthen of one’s relation with Allah. All Sufis follow this tradition. Likewise, Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman established the Sarwari Qadri khanqah (Khanqah Sarwari Qadri). Moreover, it always remains open for sincere seekers of Allah irrespective of their sect, group, caste, colour or genealogy. Hence he is bestowing Allah’s seekers from any corner of the world by granting them Ism-e-Allah Zaat with or without oath of allegiance.
