Moreover he has expressed the highest truths of sufism in the language and culture of hia native Punjab thus conveying the message in the tongue of his people. This is a function that sufis have performed wherever they have gone and still being performed but current authentic masters of the tradition.

A recent master advised a visitor to read the Quran then said: “if you can’t do that read the Masnavi and if you can’t do that then read the Saif ul Malook ( a masnavi in Panjabi). The message is the same”.
