Sultan-ul-Arifeen Sultan-ul-Faqr Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Bahoo Rehmat-ul-Allah Alayh had four wives:

1.One of his wives belonged to the family of Hazrat Makhdoom Burhan-ud-Din Ahmad resident of Langar Makhdoom Wala, District Jhang.

2.His second wife belonged to the outer circles of his family of Awans.

3.The third wife was also his close relative.

4.His fourth wife belonged to a Hindu money lender family, who accepted Islam at the hands of Sultan-ul-Arifeen, before he married her. The writer of Manaqib-e-Sultani narrates this incident as: “Once Sultan-ul-Arifeen went to Multan and sat at the grave of Hazrat Baha-ud-Din Zikriya for Dawat-e-Qaboor . At first, the grave shook but at once it was ordered from Hazrat Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani Razi Allah Anhu ‘Oh Baha-ud-Din! He is my beloved, you must also love him and grant him, whatever he desires’. On hearing this, the soul of Hazrat Baha-ud-Din came out of his grave to meet Sultan-ul-Arifeen and asked him to order, whatever he wanted, so that it may be obeyed. Sultan-ul-Arifeen said ecstatically that he needed nothing. However, when Hazrat Baha-ud-Din insisted, he said, ‘Give a souvenir from a pious man of your city’. Saying this, he left the shrine and went towards the north in the state of ecstasy. Afterwards, when he was standing near the river to have ablution, he saw a young maiden standing with shoes in her hands, having blisters in her feet. Sultan-ul-Arifeen asked, ‘Who are you?’ She replied, ‘I am the daughter of a money lender. When you came out of the shrine of Hazrat Baha-ud-Din Zikriya, I accepted Islam at once, as I was ordered by him to serve you. Rather, he ordered me to become your slave.’Sultan-ul-Arifeen married her in the nearby village.”
