Description: The literal meaning of Ganj-ul-Asrar is “The Treasure of Divine Secrets”. The writer Sultan-ul-Arifeen Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Bahoo has very conveniently and interestingly disclosed these secrets in the book. The most impressive aspect of Hazrat Sultan Bahoo’s writing is that he follows an entirely different style of writing in all his books, which is always pleasing and captivating. Every reader derives spiritual beneficence from his words, at whichever mystic level he maybe. In this particular book Hazrat Sultan Bahoo has explained the marvels of his Sarwari Qadri Order in a very easy to understand manner and described the grandeur of Sarwari Qadri Spiritual Guide and his disciples. Originally Ganj-ul-Asrar is written in Persian language. I am having the honour of translating it into English on the order of my Murshid Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman Madzillah-ul-Aqdus, who is the spiritual descendant of Hazrat Sultan Bahoo and the Sarwari Qadri Perfect Spiritual Guide in this era. For this translation he provided me the Persian manuscript of Ganj-ul-Asrar written by Khalifa Gul Mohammad Sindhi in 1323 Hijri (1905 AD). There are a few other manuscripts of Ganj-ul-Asrar available which are written by: 1. Ameer Haider son of Syed Shah Mohammad, in 1206 Hijri 2. Mohammad Raza, in 1306 Hijri 3. Mohammad Bakhsh, in 1370 Hijri 4. A manuscript of Ganj-ul-Asrar is available in Iran Pakistan Institute of Persian Studies (Ganj Bakhsh library, Islamabad) which was written in 1303 Hijri but the writer’s name is not mentioned on it. It is in fact a script which includes four books of Hazrat Sultan Bahoo i.e. Ganj-ul-Asrar, Majalisa-tul- Nabi, Risala Roohi Sharif and Taigh-e-Barhana. The series number of this book is 12473. 5. There is another script available in Iran Pakistan Institute of Persian Studies (Ganj Bakhsh library, Islamabad) which includes three books of Sultan Bahoo i.e. Majalisa-tul-Nabi, Ganj-ul-Asrar and Noor-ul-Huda, written by Hakeem Ghulam Hussain in 1322 Hijri. The series number of this book is 12830. The printed script of Ganj-ul-Asrar is available in “Nuskha-eMutabarika” which consists of four books by Hazrat Sultan Bahoo i.e. Risala Roohi Sharif, Ganj-ul-Asrar, Mohabbat-ulAsrar and Majalisa-tul-Nabi. It was published by Itehad Press Lahore on the request of Haji Mohammad Siddique who was a book trader at the shrine of Hazrat Sultan Bahoo. This printed script is found from Masood Jhandir Research Library Mailsi. The only English translation of Ganj-ul-Asrar till now is done by Zaheer Gondal which he has not done directly from Persian text but from the Urdu translation of Ganj-ul-Asrar done by K.B Naseem. This English translation is available on internet but without the original Persian text of Ganj-ul-Asrar. This translation would not have been possible without the guidance of my Murshid Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman who is always a source of inspiration and spiritual help for me. Whatever skills I have, owe to his favour and kindness. All my gratitude cannot be enough for his limitless blessings. I am thankful to my husband Mohammad Moghees Sarwari Qadri and my dear fellow disciple Mrs. Yasmeen Khurshid Malik Sarwari Qadri who reviewed this book and gave suggestions to improve it.
