Sultan Bahoo The Life and Teachings/Transference of Amanat-e-Elahiya (Trust of Allah)
Before, we discuss the transference of Amanat-e-Elahiya (The Sacred Trust of Allah) by Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Bahoo Rehmat-ul-Allah Alayh and his khalifahs, it is important to discuss the reality of “Amanat-e-Elahiya” and “Khilafat” in detail. WHAT IS AMANAT-E-ELAHIYA?
In the Holy Quran, Allah Ta’ala says about Amanat-e-Elahiya (His Sacred Trust) that:
"We presented our Trust before the skies, earth and mountains. Everyone refused to bear it, but man (Insan-e-Kamil) picked it up. No doubt, he is cruel (towards his nafs) and ignorant (of his highest rank near Allah)." (Al-Ahzab-72)
According to Fuqara-e-Kamileen (The Perfect Faqeers), this Trust actually refers to the true heritage of Hazoor Alayh Salat-o-Salam which is Ism-e-Allah Zaat and the Trust of Faqr.
The person to whom this Trust has to be transferred is stationed at the grand position: "When Faqr is accomplished, there is Allah."
When the Seeker of Allah reaches the peak of Faqr i.e. Baqa Billah , he acquires all the attributes of Allah and is stationed at the grand status of Insan-e-Kamil (The Universal Man). The most perfect and pre-eminent Man of this entire Universe is Hazrat Mohammad Sall’Allahu Alayh Wa’alihi Wasallam and he is the best manifestation of Allah.
In his book “Noor-ul-Huda” Sultan-ul-Arifeen says: “The existence of Insan-e-Kamil is a treasured maze of the talisman (wonders) of The Divine Name and Essence.”
Allama Ibn-e-Arabi says about Insan-e-Kamil that: "Since Ism-e-Allah Zaat (The Personal Name of Allah) is the comprehension of all the Divine Attributes and origin of the entire marvels, hence, it is called the basis of enlightenment and Rab-ul-Arbab . The person who is its manifestation is the exact essence of Him, an Abdullah Ain-ul-Ayan . In every era, one person is on the footsteps of Hazrat Mohammad Sall’Allahu Alayhi Wa’alihi Wasallam and he is the Abdullah (The absolute slave of Allah) of his era. He is called the Qutb of all the Qutbs or “the Ghaus ”; he is Mohammadi Al-Mushrab . He unintentionally stays in the subjection of command, proximity of obligatory works. Whatever Allah has to do, He does it through him.”
As it is said in the Holy Quran:
"And We have encompassed everything in Imam-e-Mubeen." (Yaseen-12)
This reality of Insan-e-Kamil is described in detail by Allama Ibn-e-Arabi Rehmat-ul-Allah Alayh in “Fasoos-ul-Hakam” as: "From Azal till Abad he Sall’Allahu Alayhi Wa’alihi Wasallam keeps changing his physical dresses in every era and only in the beings of “perfect individuals” does he manifest himself." (Sharah Fasoos-ul-Hakam wal Aiqaan)
Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Bahoo Rehmat-ul-Allah Alayh says about transferring the Trust of Allah that:
I searched thirty years for such the true Seeker whom I could take to the extreme levels where I am myself (i.e. transfer him the Trust of Allah) but I could not find one. (Ameer-ul-Kaunain)
I have been in search of a true seeker since years who would deserve the Divine Vision and Union but I could not find the one. (Noor-ul-Huda Kalan)
139 years after the death of Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Bahoo Rehmat-ul-Allah Alayh, Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Syed Mohammad Abdullah Shah Madni Jilani Rehmat-ul-Allah Alayh was selected and sent by the Holy Prophet Mohammad Sall’Allahu Alayhi Wa’alihi Wasallam to whom Sultan-ul-Arifeen transferred Amanat-e-Elahiya.
