Having the brillant idea of compiling the Mystic poetry of Sarwari Qadri Saints and executing it is one thing. Moreover, going the extra mile by translating their tremendous work is not only prudent but an exceptional thing done by the inspirational and prolific writer of Islamic Sufism, Sultan ul Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib ur Rehman. The sacred kalam of the Sufi Saints is drenched in Divine Reality and only their true heir could have explained its meaning in such detailed manner in its true spiritual light. The metaphors used by the Shaikhs in their poetry are infused with great explanation emphasizing on the laments and yearns of the lover for the Divine Beloved, struggles of a true seeker of Allah as well as on sacrifice, submission and patience. Often the great Sufi concept of dying before death is also discussed Sultan Bahoo is quite fond of and is considered to be the key of ending all longings and expectations except those for the Beloved.
The poetry of the following Sufi Masters is entailed in the book:
- Sultan ul Arifeen Sultan Bahoo
- Sultan ul Sabireen Sultan Mohammad Abdul Ghafoor Shah
- Shahbaz e Arifan Sultan Sayyid Bahadur Ali Shah
- Sultan ul Auliya Sultan Mohammad Abdul Aziz
- Sultan ul Faqr Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali
In addition, the book begins with their biographies written by their spiritual descendant Sultan ul Ashiqeen himself.
He has made sure that a common reader is able to understand the Sufi terminologies due to which he has provided meanings of all terms related to Faqr (Sufism).
The first few chapters are mainly devoted to the hagiographies of Sarwari Qadri Saints, which include their journey to Divinity and which end with their rank and status as well as marvels of their life.
