Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman has a God-gifted intellect and wisdom. Therefore, his spiritual guide Sultan-ul-Faqr Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali assigned him the duty of publishing the monthly magazine Mirat-ul-Arifeen Lahore. Although, he had no experience of journalism, yet he performed it with sincerity and hard work. Finally, in April 2000, he successfully published the first issue of Mirat-ul-Arifeen Lahore. Thus, Sultan-ul-Faqr VI Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali made him the chief editor of that magazine. Moreover, he had him publish it by the patronymic of ‘Abu al-Murtaza’ (father of Murtaza). Thoughtfully, he named him so out of love and also due to his son Sahibzada Mohammad Murtaza Najib.
Anyhow, till August 2004, Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen ran this magazine with flying colours. Per the guidance of Sultan-ul-Faqr VI, he made sure it purely contained the teachings of Faqr. Even after the death of his spiritual guide, he continued working for magazine Mirat-ul-Arifeen. Then, slowly one after the other his opponents took back the magazine and other responsibilities from him. Thus, by 2004 the new heads of Tanzeem Al-Arifeen entirely separated him from the organization.
Sultan ul Ashiqeen and Sultan ul Faqr VI
Even after the death of Sultan-ul-Faqr VI, Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen was very keen to continue his Murshid’s message via magazine. Thus, after been separated from Mirat-ul-Arifeen, he made efforts to issue a new magazine to spread the teachings of Faqr. Hence, in August 2006, he initiated the issuance of Monthly Sultan-ul-Faqr Magazine Lahore.
The sole purpose of this magazine is invitation towards Faqr and spread the teachings of the Sarwari Qadri Saints.

By reading these teachings, people would reach out to get the invocation and contemplation of Ism-e-Allah Zaat. This would make them get rid of materialism and sectarianism. Thus, making them able enough to achieve the sacred heritage of Faqr of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh).
