Ism e Mohammad (Personal name of Holy Prophet)

Sultan ul Arifeen, Sultan Bahoo

Tasawur Ism e Mohammad
(Contemplation of The Sacred Name of Mohammad)

Mohammad is the Personal Name of the Holy Prophet Sall’Allahu Alayhi Wa’alihi Wasallam, just as (Allah) is the Personal Name of Allah. Rest of their names are attributive names.

The Personal Name (Mohammad) is most related to his holy self and encompasses all his attributes. So, the Tasawur of this name is the most effective medium to get closer to his holy self and be blessed with his marvellous bounties. Tasawur Ism-e-Mohammad has most pleasant and luminous effects on the Batin (inward) of the Invoker and makes his spiritual elevation faster and easier, and he finds presence in the Assembly of Prophet Mohammad Sall’Allahu Alayhi Wa’alihi Wasallam which is the most important inward station before Deedar-e-Elahi. One, who finds presence in the Assembly of the Holy Prophet Sall’Allahu Alayhi Wa’alihi Wasallam accomplishes the true faith.

Literary Work of Sultan ul Arifeen Sultan Bahoo

Sultan-ul-Arifeen Sultan-ul-Faqr Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Bahoo Rehmat-ul-Allah Alayh did not get any kind of apparent education, still there are 140 books written by him. All his books are written in Persian except “Abiyaat-e-Bahoo” (verses) which is in Punjabi language.

The translators of Sultan-ul-Arifeen Sultan-ul-Faqr Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Bahoo’s books have often written that they could not find any manuscript written by his own sacred hands, only the manuscripts written by his Khalifahs (spiritual successors) and dervishes could be found. Saad Ameer Khan Niazi, who is a translator of Sultan-ul-Arifeen’s books, writes in the foreword of the translation of his book Asrar-ul-Qadri that: “As a translator of Sultan Bahoo’s books, I faced the problem that original manuscripts of his books were not available which could be consulted to translate the actual Persian matter properly. If I could have found only one manuscript written by Sultan-ul-Arifeen’s own sacred hands then others would not be needed for the translation but unfortunately not even one could be found. All of them were lost and wasted because the Khalifahs kept them in their boxes instead of spreading them. (Page 40)

Where is God ? | Sultan ul Arifeen Hazrat Sultan Bahoo

Where is God ?

On this earth, from the first day we keen to know that where is God? the answer of this question is replied by famous Sufi Sant of Subcontinent Hazrat Sultan Bahoo in his book “Ain-ul-Faqr “ also known as “The soul of Faqr”.

Faqeer Bahoo informs the travellers of the mystic way that Allah is neither in the six dimensions nor in the sun, moon or the four basic elements i.e. earth, water, air and fire, neither you can find Allah through intellectual discussions nor through ignorance,neither is He bound by time, space or states nor can be viewed in physical beauty of things.
