Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Bahoo Rehmat-ul-Allah Alayh died at the age of 63 years on Thursday 1st Jamadi-us-Sani, 1102 Hijri (1st March 1691 A.D) at the time of Asr prayer.
Research on date, month and the year of birth and death of Sultan-ul-Arifeen Rehmat-ul-Allah Alayh:
A few unanimous matters: It is agreed upon by all the biographers that the age of Sultan-ul-Arifeen was exactly sixty three at the time of his death according to the lunar calendar.
Sultan-ul-Faqr VI Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Mohammad Asghar Ali Rehmat-ul-Allah Alayh said to me, while he was talking about the birth and the death date of Sultan-ul-Arifeen Rehmat-ul-Allah Alayh, “His age was exactly sixty three years in accordance with the age of Hazoor Alayh Salat-o-Salam. Neither a day more nor less. His date of birth and death are the same.”
1.Sultan Hamid has not mentioned the date of birth of Sultan-ul-Arifeen in Manqib-e-Sultani, but writes that he died on the night of Friday 1st Jamadi-us-Sani 1102 Hijri.
2.Syed Ahmad Saeed Hamadani writes in Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Bahoo-Hayat-o-Taleemat that “he was born in the reign of Shah Jahan.” Shah Jahan ascended the throne in 1628 A.D and Hazrat Sultan-ul-Arifeen Rehmat-ul-Allah Alayh was born some time before or after it. The year of death of Sultan-ul-Arifeen is written 1690 A.D in this book. In his book Shama-e-Jamal, Syed Ahmad Saeed Hamadani writes the year of birth somewhere between 1627 and 1631 and writes 1690 as the year of death, while in his book “Ahwaal-o-Maqamat-e-Bahoo” he writes 1631 as the year of birth and 1691 (1102 Hijri) as the year of death.
