Mystic Poetry of Sultan ul Ashiqeen

Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman has also expressed his Divine love through mystic poetry. Given below is his poetry as well as quatrains.

Quatrain about Holy Prophet

جنت سے اعلیٰ اور ہر لمحہ انوار کی برسات ہے حضورؐ کی قبرِ انور پر

رحمت کا نزول اور ملائکہ کا درود و سلام ہے حضورؐ کی قبرِ انور پر

نجیبؔ جیسا عاصی و خطا کار نہیں ہے حضورؐ اس زمانے میں

بس ہے یہ التجا کہ سر رکھوں قدموں میں اور جاں نکلے حضورؐ کی قبرِ انور پر

Explanation: The light of Allah is continuously showering at the sacred shrine of our beloved Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). Indeed, his tomb is superior to that of paradise. As, the benevolence of Allah descends upon it every moment and the angels present salutations. O my beloved Prophet, I admit that I am the most sinful and guilty person on the earth. Yet I dare to request you to let me die in your feet at your sacred tomb.

Quatrain about Ism-e-Allah Zaat

اسمِ اَللّٰہُ  ذات ہی دیتا ہے انسان کو اصل حیات

اسی سے سینہ ہستی سے خواہشاتِ غیراَللّٰہ کی ممات

اپنے رُخ سے اٹھاتا ہے یہ حجاب اس وقت

عطا کرے جب اِسے صاحبِ مسمّٰی اسمِ ذات

Explanation: Certainly, the invocation and contemplation of Ism-e-Allah Zaat grants eternal life to a person. Moreover, it exterminates all the desires that are other than Allah from his inward. However, it is effective only if granted by the perfect spiritual guide who is the man of Divine Essence. Otherwise, neither its reality is revealed, nor one is blessed with its miraculous effects.

انسان کو اپنی پہچان سے ملتی ہے خدا کی پہچان

اسمِ  اَللّٰہُ  دیتا ہے انسان کو اپنی پہچان

جس نے نہ پہچانا اپنی ذات کو اسمِ اَللّٰہُ ذات سے

ناکامی و نامرادی اور سیاہ بختی ہے اس کی پہچان

Explanation: A person recognizes Allah by recognizing his inner being. In other words, one realizes his inward only through the invocation and contemplation of Ism-e-Allah Zaat. Contrarily, one who does not recognize himself through Ism-e-Allah Zaat, eternal failure, disappointment and misfortune are his destiny. Thus, whoever fails to find his own reality, can never be blessed with the recognition and closeness of Allah.

Quatrain about Searching his Spiritual Guide

بستی بستی ڈھونڈا، نگر نگر تلاش کیا

دلبر نہ ملا کہیں، سفر دور دراز کیا

جب کریم نے کیا فیصلہ محرمِ دِل بنانے کا

تو صاحب نے خود اپنے دیوانے کو تلاش کیا

Explanation: I wandered in every town and city and traveled to far off places but could not find my Beloved. On the other hand, when the Divine Essence decided to bless my humble self then He Himself called me. Thus, He blessed with His closeness and union and made me His confidant and beloved. In fact, He Himself called me towards His court, thus helped me reach my spiritual guide.

Quatrain on Divine Love

عشق کی ابتدا ہے دیدار و صحبت یار کی

عشق کا حاصل ہے محبت یار کی

عشق کی حقیقت، عشق ہے بس عشق

عشق کی انتہا ہے ذات یار کی

Explanation: To tell the truth, the beginning of Divine love (ishq) is the vision and company of the Divine Beloved. Consequently, the reward of Divine love is the love returned by the Beloved. The reality of Divine love cannot be explained in words, in fact, it is just ‘The Divine love’. Furthermore, the extreme and ultimate level of Divine love is to annihilate oneself and eventually become One with the Beloved.

Quatrain on Annihilation in Murshid

میرے جسم کے لُوں لُوں میں سما گیا یار میرا

میں کھو گیا اور آگیا یار میرا

میں ظاہر میں تلاش کرتا رہا جسے

میرا قالب ہی بن گیا یار میرا

Explanation: Each and every cell of my body is obsessed with the love of my Beloved. Said another way I annihilated and lost myself in Him, so now my existence is actually His. There was a time when I wandered everywhere in His search. However, now He has become my own physical as well as spiritual being.

نجیبؔ نہ رہا باقی، یار کی ذات میں فنا ہو گیا

اپنے غیر سمجھ نہ سکے، کہتے ہیں کہ کیا سے کیا ہو گیا

سنو! نجیب تو کب کا مر چکا اے دوستو

یار سے جب یار مِلا، میں میں نہ رہا وہ ہو گیا

Explanation: Najib has annihilated in his Beloved and thus, lost his own self. However, people could not understand what happened to him and how he has totally changed. Listen friends! In fact, Najib does not exist anymore. When I became spiritually one with my Beloved, then my being became His reflection.

Quatrain Said on visiting the Shrine of his Murshid

After Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali’s death, when Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen visited his shrine first time, there he uttered following words;

جھکا جب مزارِ یار پر، اَنْتَ اَنَا وَاَ نَا اَنْتَ  کی آئی صدا

کی عرض کہ اس قابل نہیں ہوں، فرمایا یہی تو ہے ہماری عطا

دیکھ ذرا قلب کے اندر کہ یہ تو ہے کہ میں

دنیا اور وجود اپنا چھوڑ کر میں قالب تیرے میں آبسا

Explanation: I bowed at the shrine of my beloved spiritual guide. Then I heard him saying; “I am you and you are me”. Consequently, I humbly replied that I do not deserve such an honour. Then he said, “This is my blessing upon you. Look within yourself, is it you or me? I left the world and the cover of my body and now I live within you.”

دنیا میں پھیلانا ہے ابھی نام سلطان الفقر کا

نجیبؔ کو ہے یہ خاص وصیت اے نوعِ انسانی

سلطان محمد اصغر علیؒ مظہر ذاتِ رَبَّانی

Explanation (1): 

Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali (may Allah bless him) is the absolute manifestation of the Divine Essence. Undoubtedly, his physical body possesses the soul of Sultan Bahoo (may Allah bless him). Moreover, due to his highest spiritual rank he is the beloved of al-Ghawth al-Azam Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (RA). Besides, he is the Sultan-ul-Faqr and the source of Divine beneficence for all. Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali, in fact, holds authority over the treasure of Faqr.

Moreover, (Allah) exalted them with the crown of “Faqr demands nothing from Allah. Rather from anyone other than Allah.” (Risala Roohi Sharif)

Since Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali is the sixth Sultan-ul-Faqr, therefore, he possesses all these ranks and attributes. In fact, by the special grace of Allah, he is stationed in the Divine sanctuary. Said another way, undoubtedly, he is the benefactor of his era. Prophet Mohammad gave the titles of ‘Mustafa Sani’ and ‘Mujtaba Akhir Zamani’ to Sultan Bahoo. Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali spread Sultan Bahoo’s teachings of Faqr and his Sarwari Qadri order in this materialistic age. Thus, he has proven that he well deserves these titles being his spiritual as well as genealogical descendant. (To elaborate, Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali belonged to the 8th generation of Sultan Bahoo’s progeny).

O my beloved spiritual guide Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali! Indeed, your perfect Divine attention elevated many of the imperfect ones to perfection. You blessed all disciples with the Divine love. However, a few special and fortunate ones got it intensely like that of Bilal (may Allah be pleased with him). Further, you received the light of Divine beauty directly from the Holy Prophet.

Sultan Bahoo revealed the highest ranks of Sultan-ul-Faqr souls in Risala Roohi Sharif. Precisely, he said that the Sultan-ul-Faqr souls have their step upon the heads of all the Saints of highest ranks. Indeed, this is perfectly true about Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali. O Sultan-ul-Faqr! Surely, the light and beauty of the sun and the moon fades away before your radiant beauty. As your Divine attention enlightened the dark inwards. No doubt! You are the secret of Hoo and the most special friend of Allah. Indeed, blessed is the month of Ramadan in which you were born.

Explanation (6):

You quietly entered the gathering of your seekers and lovers with soft steps. Then you lowered your gaze after looking at them smilingly. Consequently, their hearts filled with warmth and excitement of your captivating smile. Moreover, your one glance made their anxious souls ecstatic, which were longing to see you. O my beloved! I was also mesmerized by your enchanting style and graceful manners.

O my friends and fellows! Never forget the mission of Sultan-ul-Faqr Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali, which is to spread the message of Ism-e-Allah Zaat.

Further, his special will to me is to spread the blessing of Ism-e-Allah Zaat in the whole world.
