Description: Sultan-ul-Waham is one of the rarest books of Sultan-ul-Arifeen Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Bahoo who is the most eminent Saint of Sub-continent. Sultan Bahoo has written 140 books out of which only 32 are available. The only manuscript of Sultan-ul-Waham was found from Jackobabad Sindh, Pakistan in 1977. The name of writer is not mentioned on it although the year of writing is mentioned as 1209 H. It also includes some other books by Sultan Bahoo i.e. Majalisa-tul-Nabi, Mohabbat-ul-Asrar, Fazalul-Laqa, Ain-ul-Faqr, Deedar Bakhsh, Ain-ul-Arifeen and a few books whose names are not clearly mentioned or are not confirmed. Persian text of Sultan-ul-Waham was first of all printed and translated in Urdu by Faqeer Mir Mohammad in November 1998 and February 1999 respectively, from Asad Mehmood printing press Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Then, in August 2012 Hafiz Hammad-ur-Rehman Sarwari Qadri translated it in Urdu under the banner of Tehreek Dawat-e-Faqr and Sultan-ul-Faqr publications. However he did not give the Persian text alongwith the translation in the first edition of his book. Doctor Sultan Altaf Ali also translated Sultan-ul-Waham in Urdu and got it published from Bahoo publications in 2013. He has given the Persian text alongwith the translation. The book in hand is the firstever English translation of Sultanul-Waham. Since Faqeer Mir Mohammad worked on the Persian manuscript for the first time, he put a lot of hard work to deduce the correct script. He has corrected many words and their spellings. Sultan Altaf Ali corrected a few of the remaining mistakes, although he 8 has made some such changes in the script which have changed the meanings of the original text. He has also added one or two lines from his own and left a few lines which could not be understood by him. I have tried my best to correct all the mistakes according to my capability and knowledge of Persian as well as the mystic way of Sultan Bahoo i.e. Faqr. This book also includes many Arabic references in the form of verses, hadiths, sayings and quotations. So the Arabic text also needed correction which is marvelously done by Hafiz Hammad-ur-Rehman Sarwari Qadri. My elevated Murshid Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Khadim Sultan-ulFaqr Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman Madzillahul-Aqdus who is the descendant of Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Bahoo and the present Spiritual Leader of his Sarwari Qadri Order has started the great task of converting all the books of Sultan Bahoo in English to spread his teachings all over the world and conferred this prestigious opportunity upon me. Sultan-ul-Waham is a very special and unique book regarding its teachings and effects. Translating Sultan Bahoo’s books has always been an honour for me but Sultan-ul-Waham is very close to my heart due to its most pleasant style and the secrets it reveals. Hazrat Sultan Bahoo has discussed very complicated mystic concepts in a very easy and convincing manner in this book. The keen readers of Sultan Bahoo’s books who want to derive beneficence from his books feel their soul being blessed with his beneficence while reading them and this feeling is very strongly felt while reading this particular book. In this book Sultan Bahoo has discussed about the power of waham in detail, which is the least ever discussed topic in the world of mysticism.
