Grandeur of Sultan ul Ashiqeen

Grandeur of Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen

Trial is the Gift of Beloveds

To judge the degree to which Allah has been gracious, one must see the success rate of one’s trials. It is an impossibility to be blessed with the closeness of Allah without trials. Even the chosen beloveds of Allah have to go through the furnace of trials. If the spiritual guide is perfect, he makes one identify trials, bestows courage (to face them), then makes one go through them, grants patience (to bear losses in all forms) and consequently, returns manifold reward of trials from the court of Allah. One of its countenance is the secret of Allah.

Secret of Allah

The secret of Allah is the adventurous journey towards the Essence of Allah. The Essence and secret both are veiled in their own layers. Every secret has a secret above it and below it. All the secrets are stated within the enlightened book (the Holy Quran). The secrets accumulate together to form the dot of bay (the Arabic font) to complete the manifestation whose physical appearance is the Secret-bearer which is Ism-e-Allah Zaat. Its existence starts with Hoo and completes at the dot of bay whereas the peak is actually just the beginning. 
The journey towards the Essence of Allah is the most difficult one. However, one who is blessed with the spiritual glance of benevolence, finds it the easiest. This glance belongs to al-Ghawth al-Azam Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani and to my spiritual guide Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman. Nothing is hidden from this sight. It is the criterion that distinguishes the good and evil. It is the sight in front of which gold is dust and dust is gold. This is why it is a must for the seeker of Allah to become as though dust before entering the court of Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen which would make his fortune filled with goodness.

Traveller of Truth

Then the seeker adjourns on the vehicle of certainty through the journey of witnessing (the Truth). The destination is truth of certainty which is in the form of layers. This rider is faster than Buraq. It is impossible to saddle it whereas riding it is simple. It’s first step is the beginning, and its second step is the peak. Then the rider becomes the embodiment of certainty and becomes the person of certainty. 
By the command and permission of the Last Prophet, Mohammad (pbuh), he is appointed at the throne of spiritual instruction and persuasion. Thereby, he exercises generosity by spreading the invaluable wealth of certainty among people. My spiritual guide Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen is the perfect example of such a person. He is that secret-bearer who is himself the secret of Allah.

Innerself vs Faith

At the beginning, the seeker of Allah always has two ways to choose from: one is of inciting innerself and its desires whereas the other is related to faith and religion. When the seeker initially comes to the spiritual guide, he is (spiritually) blind. Hence, it is in his favour to listen to the spiritual guide (for spiritual navigation). This is the reason why the one who disobeys the spiritual guide becomes a friend of the Satan thereby annihilating in Satan to become one himself. On the other hand, the one who submits and obeys the spiritual guide annihilates in him and becomes immortal with Allah (baqa billah). Only Allah is Immortal. Therefore, intelligent is he who follows the word of his spiritual guide without any argument or questions. This is the bright sign of being a person of gnosis.
Giving up the authority despite being a person of power is a sure sign of submissiveness and having gnosis of Allah. The more a person gives in to the will of Allah, the powers given to him are increased 70 times. When he does not exercise these powers (bowing to the will of Allah), those powers are again increased by 70 times. Ultimately, he becomes a person of power. However, his journey does not end here. Despite all his powers, he submits to the will and decision of Allah presenting his life to the Truth.

Power of Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen

Imam Husayn had perfect powers granted by Allah, but he chose to submit to the decision of Allah. This is the reason why the perfect spiritual guide despite being the most powerful person submits to the decision of Allah. Only the sincere seekers are aware that their spiritual guide is a man of authority. The seekers of the world and paradise take the spiritual guide to be a man of no authority (God forbid). This is the first lesson of Satan. In contradiction, when the seeker of Allah finds his spiritual guide to be the holder of perfect powers and yet submitting to the decisions of Allah-whose example is my spiritual guide Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen- then the seeker circumambulates around the light of the spiritual guide. This station is achievable through the kingly invocation or dhikr (Sultan-ul-Azkar) which is granted by my gracious and kind spiritual guide Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen. This invocation takes the invoker to the one being invoked. And the peak of invocation is that the invoker finds the countenance of spiritual guide being invoked.
The perfect spiritual guide reveals the Truth on the first day in front of the seeker. When the seeker witnesses the Truth from his inward, then he starts to follow the spiritual guide. The spiritual guide takes him on his spiritual journey while physically staying in this world. This journey is infinite and keeps continuing even if this life ends because the spiritual guide has the reigns of the horse on which the seeker is adjourned whose destination is Hoo-the station of no station.

Mediation of Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen

Allah is pure and only through purity can one reach Him. Purity is related to mediation. This is the reason why mediation is permitted and approved on the condition that the mediator is like that of my spiritual guide Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman. On the first day of allegiance, purity is inculcated within the seeker in such a way that He seeks refuge from all the impurities that are from Satanic and inciting innerself. 
The mediation only belongs to Prophet Mohammad (pbuh). It was through his mediation that the soul was blown in Adam. When the soul found it difficult to penetrate and adjust within the body of clay, it easily penetrated by the Mohammadan mediation. It is the mediation of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) that the light of Sultan-ul-Faqr manifested itself. The mediation has been passed on from Ali ibn abi Talib to Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani to Sultan-ul-Arifeen Sultan Bahoo and continues till my spiritual guide Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen. This is the reason why the chosen seekers of Allah travel from beginning to the peak on the very first day whereas Allah says regarding the narrow minded seekers:

“And whoever remains blind (to the truth) in this (world) will be blind in the Hereafter as well, distracted from the path (of deliverance).” (17:72)

Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen – the Sarwari Qadri Mediator

If the mediation is that of a Sarwari Qadri spiritual guide, then all veils are lifted. Everything is revealed from pre-existence to eternity. A person becomes misguided if he tries to walk this journey without a mediator. Refusal of mediation is a Satanic characteristic whereas a weak mediator only ruins one’s intelligence.  The genuine mediator is always a Sarwari Qadri perfect spiritual guide as my spiritual guide Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen. 
Without mediation, no one has ever reached the desired destination. The reason is that the soul only travels the way that is equipped with mediation. If the spiritual journey of the soul is delayed, then the inciting innerself starts to adopt the twenty-four calls of Satan. However, if the seeker of Allah acquires the mediation of my spiritual guide Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen, then he gets connected to the Mohammadan light from the very first day. The pioneer of this mediation is Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) and even Adam was granted forgiveness as a result of his mediation.

Why is Mediation Important

Connecting to this mediation means to get completely rid of the Satanic calls. This is the reason why Sultan Bahoo says:

Mediation is better than excellence. (Ain-ul-Faqr)

When some seekers of Allah did not consent the mediation of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) then Allah also did not consent to them. This is because the mediator is the secret-bearer and he himself is the secret. It should be clarified that only two things exist in the world-good and evil. Goodness is the Mohammadan light whereas evil is Satan. In every era, access to the Mohammadan light is only possible through mediation. If the seeker holds onto this mediation, then he reaches the Mohammadan light which is extreme goodness. On the contrary, if the seeker does not hold onto this mediation then he is surrounded with evil. If the mediator is Sarwari Qadri spiritual guide as my spiritual guide Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen is, then it is as though holding onto the rope of Allah. 

Rope of Allah

Allah says:

And hold fast to the rope of Allah, all of you together, and do not generate dissension and factions. 
(1:103)

A person remains distant from Allah until he adopts mediation. This is why Allah says:

O believers! Fear Allah persistently and keep looking for means to (approach and get closer to) Him and strive hard in His way so that you may prosper.
(5:35)

It is painful for Satan when a seeker finds mediation towards Allah. This closes the way to misguidance. Even on the day of Divine covenant, the souls who remained present before their Lord was due to mediation. Those who diverted their attention from the mediation, got into Satanic schemes. There is only one way to reach Allah and that is of meditation. Among the roads that lead to Allah, the safest way is that of mediation as there are Satanic delusions in other ways. There are glad tidings for those who adopt the path of mediation because not a single sincere seeker has ever failed this way. Misfortune is for those who follow other paths as all of them lead to destruction and failure.

Station of Oneness

Divine Oneness is beyond the understanding of intellectual capacity. This is the station beyond stations where only Alif has access to It is due to this station that the perfect spiritual guide is able to see the seeker anywhere and anytime. Hence, the Sarwari Qadri disciple is never alone. Divine Oneness is the origin of all stations and levels. Everything manifested because of Divine Oneness and every peak is due to this. Only the Sarwari Qadri spiritual guide has the marvel of becoming the embodiment of Divine Oneness. This is because he is at the footsteps of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh). 
According to his Hadith:

“I am Ahmad without M..”

The Sarwari Qadri spiritual guide being on the footsteps of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) is just as on the ascension, Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) reached the point of Qausain where the distance vanished. Regarding this Ibn al-Arabi states that Allah says:

“Place your feet upon My feet.”

The owner of this grandeur is my spiritual guide Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman. 

Status of Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen

Divine Oneness is infinite. Parallel to this reality is that the origin of Divine Oneness is the inward of the perfect spiritual guide. According to a Hadith:
The inward of true believer (Momin) is the throne of Allah.

The secret of Kun (to be) is also absolute Oneness. It is stated in Shams-ul-Fuqara (its English version is Sufism-The Soul of Islam):

لِسَانُ الْفُقَرَائِ سَیْفُ الرَّحْمٰنِ

Meaning: The tongue of Fuqara is the sword of Rahman. 
These words signify the status of my spiritual guide Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen. 

Divine Oneness is beyond spiritual state, spiritual station and expression. It is necessary for sincere seekers to adopt the company of the one who resides beyond any station to achieve truth of certainty (haq al-yaqin). The Universal Divine Man (al-Insan al-Kamil) is the manifestation of Divine Light which is filled with Divine Light. 
It is impossible to understand Oneness through duality. Oneness is a secret which is only known to the embodiment of Oneness. This is the peak of gnosis of Allah that the part (juz) becomes whole (kul) in his yearn and desire to know the whole. There are no dangers at this level although before this, there are numerous dangers as Sultan Bahoo says:

Until a person reaches Oneness, he is surrounded with dangers.

Origin of Goodness: Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen

It is impossible to recognize the countenance of ‘only the Divine Essence is manifested in esoteric and exoteric being’ except for the Divine lovers because Allah is love Himself. Hence, only those who desire love must enter the court of my spiritual guide because within a moment, he converts the desirous to the desired one provided that the seeker is courageous.
The recognition of Oneness is unachievable because Oneness means a single unit. Everything of this single unit is limited to singularity. Singularity is infinite and is full of goodness and whose origin is my spiritual guide Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen. This is the reality of the perfect one whose peak is the beginning. The reality of my spiritual guide can be understood through Oneness whereas there is singularity in the solitude of Oneness. Oneness is the reality of perfect ones as their origin and finality is the same. The reality of my spiritual guide can be understood at the station/realm of Oneness. In the solitude of Oneness, there is singularity. And its reality is known only to the Essence as in that realm there is none but Him.

Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen-the Kaaba of Lovers

Whenever my spiritual guide wants, he can favour the sincere seeker with theophany to grant gnosis of Allah to his inward so that it takes the form of truth of certainty. He showers countless such theophanies upon his disciples whether they are from among humans or jinns. His spiritual sight is the cover of Oneness whose beneficence is due to love. Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen is the Kaaba of lovers. When one witnesses this, he becomes speechless whereas if one does not become speechless then it means one has not witnessed his reality. 

Sultan of Love

Love is guidance. My spiritual guide, the Sultan of love whose love, by the command of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh), is progressing each day. With each moment, there is elevation whereas it is impossible to estimate each moment. There are countless intense theophanies of love upon the countenance of Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen, that narrate and prove that he is love himself. He is the beloved of Allah.
The axis of the universe is sainthood whereas the axis of sainthood is submission to the decision of Allah. The perfection of this submission is the beginning of ascension. Ascension is the name of returning back to the beginning. The beginning of beginning is the sacred essence of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) to which only one road leads which is called love. Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen is the Sultan and king of this love. 

Beloved of Allah-Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen

Love is infinite at the beginning of which Angel Gabriel (as) refused to go further. My spiritual guide kept the Divine Trust of love, instructed seekers of Allah and spread the treasure of love to them. The peak of the Divine lover is the status of belovedness. According to a Hadith:

Allah grants perfection in faith to those whom He loves (i.e. those who are His beloved). (al-mustadrak 7301)
Hence, it is proven that the beloved of Allah is the person of perfect faith. In the beginning, the lover adopts the will of his Creator whereas his innerself is pleased on Allah’s will. Moreover, when the status of belovedness is bestowed then Allah becomes the lover, and he becomes the beloved. Here, the innerself is such that Allah is pleased with the person and He fulfills his desires. As Iqbal says:

خودی کو کر بلند اتنا کہ ہر تقدیر سے پہلے
خدا بندے سے خود پوچھے بتا تیری رضا کیا ہے

Oneness is when the decision of Allah is that of his slave. There is only one decision which belongs to Allah Almighty. This is the highest level of belovedness.

Marvels of Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen 

Where there is sainthood, the manifestation of marvels is a must. Marvels are the proofs of sainthood but it must be kept in mind that marvels are both spiritual and physical. It is extremely necessary to keep spiritual marvel as the foundation of the recognition of a Saint because this is the origin of guidance. Although, it is impossible to count the marvels of Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman as it is impossible to count the drops of fathomless ocean. 
The perfect spiritual guide tries not to manifest his marvels due to Sharia, he avoids fame (so that worldly people do not come to him) and due to the Mohammadan Sunnah, the perfect Sarwari Qadri Fakir tries not to manifest physical marvels so that he stays in the realm of mysticism (tariqat), reality (haqeeqat) and gnosis (marifat). These are the occasions on which physical marvels are manifested by the Sarwari Qadri spiritual guide. Because the inward spiritual world is of mysticism, reality and gnosis this is why spiritual marvel is infinite and beyond the level of understanding. The understanding capacity of a person determines what he achieves and witnesses. 
It is also the truth to state that spiritual marvels are concealed in the veils of the physical world whereas physical marvel may also be hidden in the spiritual veils. Both the physical and spiritual marvels of Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen are a source of guidance for the people of truth. On the contrary, those who are veiled, or blind are the like of a mule who learn nothing no matter how many books it may load on its back. For those who have the vision of Allah, a mere spark is enough whereas for the blind, even the Sun is veiled. 

Spiritual Power of Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen 

The inwards of all human beings have been given under the power of the Perfect Ones. Their hand is the Hand of Allah. According to Prophet’s Hadith:

Abd Allah ibn Amr ibn al-As related the tradition that he heard the Prophet of Allah say: “The inward of humans is between the two fingers of Allah. It is upto Allah that He keeps it that way or He bends it.” (Muslim)

This is the grandeur of my spiritual guide Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman. His wrath is due to Allah’s wrath whereas his love attracts people towards the love of Allah. The explanation of his power is beyond words. He uses this power in countless matters of his disciples (both human and jinns) and brings goodness out of it and for the enemies, the evil aspect comes in front of them.

First, he exercises power in several matters of a disciple, then in every matter he manifests countless ways of his power bringing the seeker to the level of certainty upon the spiritual guide. The evidence of his spiritual power is encased within the book ‘Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen’.
Those who recognize the Saints because of their power, it is necessary for those seekers of Allah to refer to this book. The manifestation of multiplicity of such powers is the proof of Divine Essence because wherever there is Allah, there echoes the voice of ‘to be’ and ‘it is done’ (kun fayakun). 

Reviver of Mohammadan Religion: Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen

Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman has revived Mohammadan religion. In the way of Tasawuf, his teachings in the form of 24 books, prove to be the tower of light for the Mohammadan umma. His existence proves that even today Allah sends Perfect Fakirs for the betterment of His creation. Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen has blessed the inward of countless people with inspired knowledge. He showed the path of human ascension because the real Sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh) is to take one to that level. 

Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen has saved Muslims from the effort of 40 day seclusion and hard Mystic exercises taking them to the Mohammadan way. He has spread the beneficence of Allah among people through the greatest name of Allah not leaving behind any seeker of Allah unsated. Its proof is stated in book ‘Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen’ that are the observations of different people. In this world of chaos, Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen is the beacon of hope.

Everyone is openly invited to gain success in this world and religion by pledging allegiance to Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen and gain the treasure of Ism-e-Allah Zaat. Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen grants the greatest and highest invocation (dhikr) of Allah (Hoo) to his disciples on the first day of pledging allegiance. He also guides about inscribing the name of Allah on body in a particular manner (mashq marqoom-e-wajoodia) for physical purity without which invocation and contemplation are ineffective and vice versa.

Hence, for the gnosis, union with Allah and to achieve the greatest spiritual level, all three are necessary: invocation (dhikr), contemplation (tasawur) and inscription (mashq marqoom-e-wajoodia) on the condition that they are given by the perfect guide who is the manifestation of Divine Essence. 
Let’s come and enlighten the flame of Divine love within yourself by the spiritual company and perfect sight of Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman.

Q1) Why is Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen important?

Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen marks an unmatched level of work and success in a quite difficult era which has faced the highest number of generational and communicational changes. He has hence, badged the greatest number of titles from the Mohammadan Assembly after Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani. His disciples bear witness that since the day he pledged allegiance to his spiritual guide Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali (may Allah bless him), to date, he has not spent a day or night without working ardently for Faqr that makes him an exceptional entity in the spiritual and physical world.

Q2) Who is the smartest Sultan of Sarwari Qadri Order?

The degree to measure the smartness of Sultan of Sarwari Qadri Order should be the level to which he has fulfilled his duty of spreading the word of Allah. Hence, undoubtedly Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen comes on top because he has broken all records of spreading the sacred knowledge and heritage of Mohammadan Faqr, he has surpassed all limitations of distance and language through his work including translations and choosing the right forms of media to spread the word.

Q3) Who is the predecessor of Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen?

Sultan-ul-Faqr VI Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali (RA) is the predecessor of Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen. He was the 30th Shaikh of Sarwari Qadri order. He is mostly known due to his high spiritual rank being among the 7 sacred celestial souls. Moreover, it was during his time that Ism-e-Allah Zaat was made common to people. He initiated this system whereby anyone who pledged allegiance received it.
