Spirit of a Sultan
Dr. Ahmad Javidalso enjoys great lineage in the Sufi mysticism order and can talk with authority over these matters as he is the grandson of the great Faqir Nur Muhammad who was a staunch devotee and disciple of the saint Sultan Bahu and the Sarwari Qadiri Sufi order and whose dedication, belief and hard work ensured that the teaching of Hazrat Sultan Bahu and his spiritual messages could be told to the whole world through the platform of Sufi mysticism.
The author is no stranger to the world of mysticism as apart from the rich history and lineage to boast of, he has also written a book ‘Sufi Light: The Secret of Meditation’ which gives even a lay person a deep understanding of the technique and doctrine of Tasawwur; which is nothing but meditation on the Supreme Name of God. Having written such a manual on Sufi mysticism, Dr. Ahmad Javidnext took on the gargantuan order of making sure that the saint Sultan Bahu’s messages of Love and of becoming whole with God reach the ears of every Muslim & non Muslim alike. Dr. Ahmad Javid said when we spoke to him during an interview that he was first introduced to the saint’s teachings at a young age by reading about him under the guidance of his grandfather, the great, Faqir Nur Muhammad himself. Kevin Peter who reviewed the book for Moterwriter.com recommended that everyone, believer or not should buy a copy and keep it in their household and share the message found in the book with their friends and family.
