At the sacred occasion of Eid-ul-fitr on – May 2022, Sultan ul Ashiqeen granted Khilafat (spiritual succession) to Ahsan Ali Sarwari Qadri.
Sultan ul Ashiqeen said:
“One of my disciple Ahsan Ali, whose formal education is M Com. He is my disciple since 6th October 2007. He is well versed in Arabic, Persian, Urdu and Punjabi languages. He has translated the books of Ghaus al-Azam Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani as well as Sultan ul Arifeen Sultan Bahoo (ra). He translated following two books of Ghaus al-Azam Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (ra)
(2) Ar-Risala tu Ghausia
He translated 7 books of Sultan ul Arifeen Sultan Bahoo i.e.
(3) Kaleed-ul-Tauheed kalan
(4) Nur-ul-Huda Khurd
The books of Ghaus al-Azam are in Arabic whereas the books of Sultan Bahoo are in Persian.
He also manages the monthly Sultan ul Faqr magazine. Especially, since we decided to launch the English language department for publishing English books, he finalises the drafting and printing of all those books himself. In particular, Sufism – The Soul of Islam was translated by 4 individuals but he single handedly put the draft in final form for printing.
In recognition of his services and for his further training, today I grant him my spiritual succession. May Allah elevate him (spiritually) even more and enable him to (successfully) pass through the very difficult path of spiritual succession. I grant him my turban and also the title of ‘Sultan Mohammad’.”
