Salam-u-alaikum,

Allah (the most merciful) has sent messengers (Ambia) and prophets (Mursleen) to guide humanity. They delivered His messages to their people to tell them that how Allah desires all human beings to live. They faced many problems to bring them out of the darkness of polytheism and into the light of monotheism. All the prophets volunteered their lives to preach the religion of Allah, the belief in the Oneness of Allah, to tell them why they were created what will happen after death and what Allah expects from us.
Hazrat Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was sent to the world to present the revelation of Allah's religion's final form. This was necessary because the message delivered by previous prophets had been corrupted or distorted by their followers. Islam is not a new religion it is reinstatement of the original religion of Allah in its purist form. Islam spread through the hard work of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). He faced disheartening difficulties and obstacles in His life but He carried on. Through his life Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) laid a practical example for the humanity.
Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was well supported by His fellows (Sahab-i-Kiraam). After Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) Sahab-i- Kiraam were given the responsibility to spread Islam as a religion of Allah in the world, They put all their efforts into it beyond all perplexities.
After Sahab-i-Kiraam, Aolia-u-allah (Friends of God, the saints, plural of a Walee, Saint) were given the duty to call on people for the right path, the path of God, the path of success. A Wali is a Muslim when he devotes himself to good and abstains from sins and does not love this world and wholeheartedly obeys the holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) and becomes friendly a dear to Allah. They can perform such things (with the permission of Almighty) which others cant do, such things are called Karamaat, Kashaf , Elham (inspirations, revelations). Aolia spends all their lives a result of their hard work Islam the religion of peace and equality was embraced by a large number of people.
Hazrat Kakasahib was a Walee, his name is well known in sufiism. He spent all his life for the people. Studying Hazrat Kaka Sahib's life we come through some of his inspirations one of which was His attachment to the life of Prophet Muhammad's (Peace Be Upon Him). He volunteered His life for the humanity and preached the religion Islam to thousands. His teachings is an ongoing process its transferred spiritually to the pupils of right path. The extensiveness of his teaching can be ascertained from the fact that all his pupils became great saints and leaders (Scholars and theologians) of their time.
Hazrat KakaSahib was born in the month of Ramadan in 983AH. He is the son of Hazrat Shaikh Bahadur Baba, His name is Sayed Kasteer Gul, but he is known as Hazrat KakaSahib, Zairay Kaka and Sheikh Rahamkar.
Sheikh Rahamkar: Rahamkar mean a kind person, Sheikh stands for a leader, Sheikh Rahamkar means A kind leader, The effect of his kindness was so great that he was given the title of Sheikh Rahamkar.

Hazrat Bahadur Baba, His Father was based towards south from the village of Ziarat Kaka Sahib called "Kahna Khail" near Nowshera, He was a great saint of his time, he was very kind to human beings. His Son Hazrat Haleem Gul writes in his Book "Makamaat-i-Qutbia wa Maklaat-i Qudsia" that few months before his birth, a family of Khattak background visited Hazrat Bahadur Baba and begged for the life of their only son who was severely ill, Hazrat Bahadur Baba cured their son spiritually and prayed to Allah that "take the life of His son and gift it to their son"
Later that day the family left the house with their son healthy and fit but Hazrat Bahadur Baba's son died. His wife was not happy with that but Bahadur Baba told her that "One human should be kind to another" he said that in reward of his kindness to the mankind, God Promised him that He will Gift him another son who will be the theologian, a saint and the shaikh of His time. He will volunteer His life for the humanity and religion and told her that "He will be respected in the East and West", "He will be popular for his kindness and mercy".
Hazrat KakaSahib is Sunni Sayed, He is descendant of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) through his grandson Hazrat Imam Husain. His forefathers were AoliaUllah and they spent their lives in Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Central Asian States, Afghanistan and Pakistan for religion Islam and its followers.
In his infant age KakaSahib never slept enough and ate sufficient food, His mother used to worry about his health, She was told by Hazrat Bahadur Baba that there was nothing to be worried about as "he weeps because he is aware of the burden on his shoulders, to fulfil the duty, to serve the people and educate them of the right path and his little desire for food is because he fasts through out the day".
Hazrat Kaka Sahib's father Hazrat Bahadur Baba is the son of Hazrat Sayed Nadir Baba (Mast Baba), who is from Sayed Ghalib-u-Din (Ghalib Gul Baba), all buried in Nowshera, Their shrines are visited by thousands of devotees every day, Langar (free food) and houses of residence are offered to them.The other ancestors are burried in Karbogha (Kohat, Pakistan), Khost, Ghazni and Gardez (Afghanistan), Bukhara (Central Asia), Mashhad (Iran), Medina Munawara (Saudi Arabia) and Karbal-i-Muaalla (Iraq).

His Son writes in his book that he explained precisely the Quranic Verse in which 'Allah Says' "And I created not the jins and humans except they should worship Me (Alone)" He explained that the real meaning of the term “worship” in the religion of Islam is invoking of Allah Almighty and fulfilling His rights. It should be applied daily by fulfilling the commitments to our parents, wives, kids, neighbors etc. Worship is reflected in our manners, behavior and attitude towards others. Worship is offering a prayer, Zikar-i- Allah, reciting and understandings of the Holy Book Qur'aan and Sunnah, worship is following the life of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be upon Him).
