Moreover Sarkar Waris taught them with practical facts and perfect guidance.

Below are some important sayings of Sarkar Waris . . . .

To spend sleepless nights and to lead a recluse's life are the attributes of mystics. These two attributes are connected with love and are distinctive features of love. Due to love a lover relinquishes worldly affairs.

The same will be with you in this world at the time of death and on the day of resurrection. Its regular practice makes seekers of truth turn in to complete and chaste human beings.

According to our Saint "love is positively monotheism and monotheism is positively love."

Sarkar Waris said, "When the day of Resurrection every one will appear with their deeds and miss-deeds in hand. I too will be present, clutching the portrait of my Beloved.
