ہر یکے را واقفم از ہر مقام

کس نہ یابم طالبے لائق لقاء

Explanation: Since years, I have been searching for a true seeker who deserves the Divine vision and union (Amanat) but I could not find the one. (Nur-ul-Huda Kalan)

In his book Noor-ul-Huda Kalan, he says:

  • For years, I have been searching for the true seekers of Allah (to bless him with Amanat). Yet could not find such a highly courageous and determined seeker. Such a seeker who truly deserved the Divine persuasion. Further to whom I could transfer the infinite wealth and blessings of exoteric and esoteric treasures of gnosis and Divine Oneness (i.e. the Amanat e Faqr). Thus fulfill my obligation of paying the charity of the Divine benedictions and get absolved of the right of Allah. (Ch: Exegesis of Mohammadan Faqr)

What Iqbal says?

Iqbal says:

اقبال ! کوئ محرم اپنا نہیں جہاں میں

معلوم کیا کسی کو دردِنہاں ہمارا

Explanation: Iqbal! I have no confidant in the world and no one knows my hidden pain.

Sultan Bahoo transferred Amanat after 139 years of his death

The given references prove that he could not find a truly capable seeker in his life to bless him with Amanat e Faqr. So he left this world without transferring it. Eighty four years after the death of Sultan Bahoo, Sayyid Abdullah Shah was born in Madina in 1186 H who was eternally chosen to be entrusted the Amanat-e-Faqr. He came from Madina to his shrine in Jhang, Pakistan (then India) in 1241 H (1825 AD) and received the Divine Trust of Faqr from him. Hence, the Sarwari Qadri order continued from him 139 years after his death.
