Shajra e Faqr

The Spiritual Chain of Sarwari Qadri Lineage

What is Shajra e Faqr?

Shajra e Faqr or Sarwari Qadri lineage is a chain of spiritual successors of the Holy Prophet who gained the Divine Trust of Faqr from his court. Previously, Shajra e Faqr or Sarwari Qadri lineage was known as Qadriyya or Qadri order. It was initiated by Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani that leads up to Ali ibn Abi Talib and hence, Prophet Mohammad (pbuh). ‘Sarwari’, means leader which refers to the Holy Prophet, whereas ‘Qadri’ is associated with Ghaus e Azam Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani. In the subcontinent Sarwari Qadri lineage reached its peak through Sultan Bahoo.

Status of a Sarwari Qadri Spiritual Guide

Sultan Bahoo states that Sarwari Qadri lineage or Shajra e Faqr is dominant over all Sufi orders. According to him the spiritual guide of Shajra e Faqr (Sarwari Qadri perfect spiritual guide) has perfect command over contemplation of Ism-e-Allah Zaat. Thus, when he blesses the seeker with the spiritual education and Divine guidance through Ism-e-Allah Zaat, he grants him the status equal to his own on the very first day. Hence the seeker becomes indifferent and independent of all needs and his attention remains focused only on the Truth. As a result, gold and soil become equal for him.

Who is the present Imam of Sarwari Qadri lineage?

The present Imam of the Sarwari Qadri lineage (Shajra e Faqr) is Sultan ul Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman. He is the founder of Tehreek Dawat e Faqr and has devoted his life to benefit the humanity with the true heritage of Holy Prophet i.e. Faqr.

Pir Abdul Ghafoor Shah remained in the company of his Murshid Sayyid Abdullah Shah for about nine years. Under the guidance and beneficence of his Murshid, he reached the extremities of Faqr. Hence, Sayyid Abdullah Shah, before his death in 1860, passed on heritage of Faqr to Pir Abdul Ghafoor Shah at the shrine of Sultan Bahoo. After adorning the throne of Divine persuasion, Pir Abdul Ghafoor Shah guided thousands of Allah’s seekers on the path of Faqr. He received the title of Sultan ul Sabireen (Sultan of enduring ones) from Mohammadan Assembly. It was because he showed remarkable patience towards the hardships of life. Furthermore, he also endured extreme pains which his own people inflicted upon him.

He died on 10th Safar 1328 Hijri (February 21, 1910).
