Spread Awareness on the Correct Lineage of Sarwari Qadri Order
A spiritual achievement of Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen is to make the world know about the correct lineage of the Sarwari Qadri order. After Sultan Bahoo many deceptive people had claimed to be his spiritual successors. They wrongly connected themselves with the Sarwari Qadri order. Actually, the real spiritual Sarwari Qadri lineage was present but just out of limelight of this material world. As it is the rule of the spiritual guides of the Sarwari Qadri order to remain away from prominence. Sadly, to their benefit, some fraudulent people used Sarwari Qadri title and tried to drive common people to themselves. Yet the sincere seekers of Allah never were inclined towards them. However, they gained utmost attention from the materialistic people and seekers of the world. Also, the excess of materialistic seekers fulfilled their desire of having huge followers. As it was a source of their cheap fame and affluence.

Through comprehensive research and references, he revealed that the true spiritual successor after Sultan Bahoo is Sayyid Mohammad Abdullah Shah. At first, Sayyid Mohammad Abdullah Shah completed his spiritual training from the Mohammadan Assembly. Then, the Mohammadan Assembly, after one hundred and thirty-nine years from the death of Sultan Bahoo, sent Sayyid Abdullah Shah as his spiritual successor. Moreover, Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen brought to limelight the correct chain of Sarwari Qadri guides after Sayyid Mohammad Abdullah Shah. In fact, he revealed their correct sequence with complete evidence and authentic references.
