Sarwari Qadri order is superior to other orders because it is unique spiritual order which contains greatest blessing of vision of Allah and pride of Prophet Mohammad i.e. FAQR. As Prophet Mohammad said:
اَلْفَقْرُ فَخْرِیْ وَالْفَقْرُ مِنِّیْ فَافْتَخِرُّ بِہ ٖ عَلیٰ سَا ئرِ الْاَنْبِیَآءِ وَالْمُرْسَلِیْنَ
Meaning: Faqr is my pride and Faqr is from me. Faqr is the reason of my superiority over all Prophets and Messengers.
Actually, Faqr is the knowledge and path of Divine vision and union. These blessings alongwith presence of Mohammadan Assembly are only found in Sarwari Qadri order. Sultan Bahoo says;
- Faqr is only found in Sarwari Qadri No other order has the power to reach Faqr. (Nur-ul-Huda Kalan)
- Sincere invokers and special invocation which annihilates the invokers in Allah honouring them with His vision, are found only in perfect mystic way of Sarwari Qadri If any other order claims such invocation and invokers, then it is surely a lie and its followers are veiled. (Nur-ul-Huda Kalan)
- It is only the way of Faqr and Sarwari Qadri order that grants awareness about every knowledge and elevates a person to the level of eternal Mystic and a man of Divine closeness and union. Hence, if any other order claims it, that is just a lie and bragging. (Nur-ul-Huda Kalan)
- Sarwari Qadri way is very beneficent and courageous. In other mystic ways, some seekers burnt to death by the blaze of Ism-e-Allah Zaat. While, some could not bear the burden of Ism-e-Allah Zaat and retreated whereas some apostatized and were cursed. (Ain-ul-Faqr)
ORDER OF SHAIKH ABDUL QADIR JILANI
Another reason for superiority of Sarwari Qadri order is that it is the order of leader of all Saints Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani. Four spiritual orders originated from him; Qadri, Soharwardi, Chishti and Naqshbandi. Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani leads Qadri order himself. While, he appointed Shaikh Shahabuddin Soharwardi, Moinuddin Chishti and Bahauddin Naqshband as leaders of Soharwardi, Chishti and Naqshbandi orders respectively. All three got beneficence from Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani. Hence, Qadri order is superior to all orders just as he is superior to all Saints.
Qadri order has two offshoots i.e. Zahidi Qadri and Sarwari Qadri. However, Sultan Bahoo explicitly declares only Sarwari Qadri order the real Qadri order. He says;
- Qadri order has two off shoots; Sarwari Qadri and Zahidi Qadri. Sarwari Qadri spiritual guide has perfect command over contemplation of Ism-e-Allah Zaat. When he blesses seeker with spiritual education and Divine guidance through Ism-e-Allah Zaat, he grants him status equal to his own on very first day. Thus, the seeker becomes indifferent and independent of all needs. His attention remains focused only on Truth. Hence, gold and soil become equal for him. Contrarily, follower of Zahidi Qadri order has to devote at least twelve years to very hard mystic struggles. So much so, his stomach remains empty. After twelve years, he becomes eligible to be present before Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani and attains the status of majdhub. While, status of Sarwari Qadri disciple is that of beloved. (Kaleed-ul-Tauheed Kalan)
WHO IS TRUE SARWARI QADRI
Sultan Bahoo explains who is actually a true Sarwari Qadri follower:
- Sarwari Qadri is actually the one who swears allegiance upon the hands of Prophet Mohammad. All evils and immoral behaviors eliminate from his self. Eventually, he gains the Divine favour to adopt the way of Sharia of Prophet Mohammad. (Mehak-ul-Faqr Kalan)
- Some Sarwari Qadris have such elite status that Prophet Mohammad directly blesses them with his benevolence. Then he hands them over to Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani. He also blesses them in such a way that they do not separate from him even for a single moment. (Mehak-ul-Faqr Kalan)
Sarwari Qadri way is free from the pain of mystic struggles, forty day seclusions, practice of holding breath, complications of initial levels and lengthy invocations. There are not any apparent saintly dresses or styles in this way. As, it is fed up of superficial manners like holding stick or tasbeeh (chaplet), wearing cloak and turban etc. Specialty of this way is that Murshid Kamil takes the seeker to extreme limits on very first day by giving him Sultan-ul-Azkar (king of invocation Hoo), contemplation of Ism-e-Allah Zaat and practice of inscribing Ism-e-Allah Zaat on body (mushq murqoom-e-wajudia). While other ways do not have all these. That is why Sultan Bahoo says that initial level of Sarwari Qadri disciple is equal to the extreme level of disciples of other ways.
