Sultan-ul-Arifeen Sultan-ul-Faqr Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Bahoo Rehmat-ul-Allah Alayh returned from Dehli and started executing his duty of guiding and persuading people towards righteousness. From that day onwards, the Divine Radiance became so obvious from his self that hundreds of people found Divine Closeness just by his single glance.

Sultan-ul-Arifeen Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Bahoo Rehmat-ul-Allah Alayh has defined an independent Faqeer as compared to the conventional Pirs (mentors) and Sajadah Nasheen Shaikhs that: “An independent Faqeer is not bound by rules and regulations and is free from the restraints of expediencies. First, he is not bound to live at one place. Second, his benefit continues in every condition and in every way. Usually, he distributes the bounty of Faqr among common people while travelling from place to place.”

Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Bahoo travelled all his life to educate and guide people on the path of Faqr and distributed the treasure of the Divine Love and Knowledge among common people. He did this at the order of Allah, as he says:

"I disgrace my nafs (baser self) by begging from door to door just to obey and please my Allah. (Noor-ul-Huda Kalan) Usually, he travelled towards the Valley of Saun Sakeser, Multan, Dera Ghazi Khan, Dera Ismail Khan, Sindh and Balochistan for guiding and persuading people. Discussion about him cannot be found in any book or writing of other saints because he always remained away from the centre of culture and education of that age and never met any writer. His visit to Dehli is mentioned only once. He distributed the treasure of Ism-e-Allah Zaat mostly among the common villagers and then these villagers continued and proceeded his work."

Sultan-ul-Arifeen spent all his life wandering in streets and cities searching for the Seekers of Allah and taking them to the Divine Oneness, as he was ordered from the court of the Holy Prophet Sall’Allahu Alayhi Wa’alihi Wasallam to do the duty of guiding Men of Allah.
