The book, originally known as SHAMS-UL-FUQARA in its Urdu text, is written and compiled by Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman. It is an epitome of the teachings of Sultan-ul-Arifeen Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Bahoo Rehmat-ul-Allah Alayh, who is the most eminent Saint of the Subcontinent. He introduced Faqr and its teachings, so that the True Seekers of Allah may spiritually get closer to Allah, have His Vision and gain entry to the Majlis-e-Mohammadi Sall’Allahu Alayhi Wa’alihi Wasallam, through the Sarwari Qadri Branch of the Qadri Order. That is why Sultan-ul-Arifeen is sometimes considered the founder of the Sarwari Qadri Order. Though, the Qadri Order, alongwith its two off shoots Zahidi Qadri and Sarwari Qadri, continued from Ghaus-ul-Azam Hazrat Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani Razi Allah Anhu.

This particular book is the first authentic and abridged version of Shams-ul-Fuqara.
