My Master(Spiritual Guide) has planted in my heart,
The jasmine of Allaah [Ta’aalaa’s] Name.
Both my denial that the Creation is real And my embracing of God,
the only reality, Have nourished the seedling down to its core.
When the buds of mystery unfolded Into the blossoms of revelation,
My entire being was filled with [Allaah Kareem] God’s Fragrance.
May the perfect Master Who planted this jasmine in my heart,
Be ever blessed, O Baahuu!
Hazrat Sultaan Baahuu (Rahmatul Laahi ‘Alaieh) (1630 – 1691 AD) belonged to the Qaadiri Order of Soofie and is known by the title of Sultaan-ul-Arifeen (king of the Gnostics). He is acknowledged as one of the most prominent Soofie poets of the Indo-Pak subcontinent.
Sultaan Baahuu like many other soofie saints of the South Asia, was a prolific writer, with more than 100 books attributed to him. However, as the majority of his books deal with specialized subjects related to Islaam, it is his Punjabi poetry that has generated popular appeal and made him a household name in the region…..
