Throne of Divine Guidance and Persuasion
When did Sultan Bahoo adorn throne of Divine guidance
After taking physical oath of allegiance, he adorned throne of Divine guidance and persuasion and returned from Delhi. There he started executing his duty of guiding and persuading people towards righteousness. From that day onwards, the Divine radiance and theophanies manifested from his existence. Moreover they were so intense that his single glance (nigah نگاہ ) elevates hundreds of people to the level of Divine union.
Sultan Bahoo has defined an independent Fakir and explained his way of Divine guidance and persuasion as compared to the conventional spiritual guides and shrine caretakers that:
- Rules and regulations do not constrain an independent Fakir. As he is free from all the constraints. First, he is not bind to stay at one place. Secondly, his beneficence continues in every condition and in every direction. Usually, he distributes the bounty of Faqr among common people while travelling from place to place.
Sultan Bahoo an independent Fakir
After he adorned the throne of Divine guidance and persuasion, he travelled all his life to educate and guide people on the path of Faqr. Among common people he distributed the treasure of Divine love and knowledge. Important to realize is that he did this on Allah’s commandment. As he says:
نفس را رسوا کنم بہر از خدا
بر ہر درے قدمے زنم بہر از خدا
Explanation: I disgrace my self by begging from door to door just to obey and please my Allah. (Nur-ul-Huda Kalan)
Journeys of Sultan Bahoo after acceding throne of Divine guidance and persuasion
He spent his entire life wandering in search of the seekers of Allah. Once he would come across any, he elevated them to the level of Divine Oneness there and then. As the Holy Prophet ordered him to execute the duty of guiding people towards Allah.
Which areas has he visited
For blessing seekers of Allah with Divine guidance and persuasion of Ism e Allah Zaat he travelled towards the valley of Soon Sakeser, Multan, Dera Ghazi Khan, Dera Ismail Khan, Sindh and Balochistan for guiding and persuading people towards Faqr. Yet the details about his travels are not in any book, anthologies or manuscripts of Saints. As he always remained away from the centers of culture and education of his age and never met any writer. Moreover his visit to Delhi is mentioned only once. For the most part he distributed the treasure of Ism-e-Allah Zaat among the common villagers. Hence those villagers continued and promoted his teachings.
While travelling, he often blessed any person on the way with Divine closeness by his single glance.
