Sultan ul Ashiqeen's Poetry

Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman Madzillah-ul-Aqdus has also expressed his Divine Love through poetry. Given below is his mystic poetry as well as quatrains


RUBAIYAT (QUATRAINS)


Meaning: The Light of Allah is continuously showering at the sacred shrine of our Beloved Holy Prophet. His tomb is superior than the paradise. 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.


Meaning: The Zikr and Tasawur of Ism-e-Allah Zaat grants eternal life to a person and sweeps away all the desires that are other than Allah from his heart. However, it is effective only if granted by a Perfect Murshid who is the complete manifestation of all its marvels and attributes. Otherwise, the reality of its miraculous effects is never revealed.



Meaning: A person recognizes Allah by recognizing his inner self which is possible only through the Zikr and Tasawur of Ism-e-Allah Zaat. One who does not recognize himself through Ism-e-Allah Zaat, eternal failure, disappointment and misfortune are his destiny. Whoever fails to find his own reality, can never be blessed with the Recognition and Closeness of Allah.



Meaning: I wandered in every town and city and travelled to far off places but could not find my Beloved. When The Divine Essence decided to bless my humble self with His Closeness and Union and make me His Confidant and Beloved, He Himself called me towards His Court and I reached my Murshid.



Meaning: The beginning of Ishq is the Vision and Company of The Divine Beloved. The reward of Ishq is the Love returned by the Beloved. The reality of Ishq cannot be explained in words, it is just 'Ishq'. The extreme and ultimate level of Ishq is to annihilate oneself and become One with the Beloved.



Meaning: Each and every cell of my body is obsessed by my Beloved. 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 but now he has become my own physical as well as spiritual being.



Meaning: Najib has annihilated in his Beloved and thus, lost his own self. People could not understand what happened to him and how he has totally changed. Listen friends! Najib does not exist anymore. When I became spiritually one with my Beloved, my being became his incarnation.



Meaning: When I bowed at the shrine of my beloved Murshid, I heard him saying " (I am you and you are me)". I humbly replied that I do not deserve such an honour. He said, "This is my blessing upon you. Look within yourself, is it you or me? I left the world and the vessel of my body, now I live within you."

Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali Mazhar-e-Zaat-e-Rabbani

He is the Supreme Spiritual Guide and an enlightened Leader who has always focused upon The Truth. He is an ocean of Reality and the Soul of Divinity possessed by a physical body of human being.

Hence, they have got eternal life and are honoured and exalted with the crown of i.e. Faqr demands nothing from Allah or from anyone other than Allah. (Risala Roohi Sharif) Since Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali is the sixth Sultan-ul-Faqr, so he possesses all these ranks and attributes by the Grace of Allah. He is the benefactor of his era. Prophet Mohammad gave the titles of "Mustafa Sani" and "Mujtaba Akhir Zamani" to Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Bahoo. The way Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali spread Sultan Bahoo's teachings of Faqr and his Sarwari Qadri Order in this materialistic age, it is proved that he well deserves these titles being his spiritual as well as genealogical descendant.

You are the secret of Hoo and the most special Friend of Allah. Blessed is the month of Ramazan in which you were born.



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