HAFIZ SYEDNA SHAH MUHAMMAD FAZL-E-GHAUS was a great saint=scholar (please see TARIKH-E-ROHILKHAND-WA-BAREALLY,page 288 and KHAIRUL KALAM FI AHWAL-AL-ARAB-WA-AL-ISLAM (ed.1899)VOL.5,p.p.23,51).As a contemporary of SHAH NEAZ AHMED BARELVI, HAFIZ SYEDNA SHAH MUHAMMAD FAZL-E-GHAUS had a wide circle of disciples and devotees and far and wide both amongst Muslims and Hindus alike in pre-Independence India. Some of the ruling Princes also had a feeling of great devotion and respect for him. One of them JIA JI RAO SCINDHIA, the ruler of GWALIOR State, once paid a personal visit to him at Bareilly as an earnest devotee. HAFIZ SYEDNA SHAH MUHAMMAD FAZL-E-GHAUS was an eminent Sufi Poet under the pen-name SAQI ( Pl. see TARIKH ROHILKHAND-WA-AREILLY, page 288) and left behind two voluminous DIWANS in URDU/HINDI and PERSIAN. It is said that he was the author of 300/400 books ad treatises in Urdu and Persian on Sufism and Islam in general. Some of them were ARZU NAMA, AL-ISHARAT-WA-AL-NIKAT-WA-AL-HIKAYAT FI-ALSINA , INTIKHAB-UL-MARSAD, RISALA ARBA, TAED-E-HIDAYAT, DIWAN (Persian) DIWAN (Urdu/Hindi)(Pl. see Dr.Muhammad Ayub Qadri, YADGAR-BAREILLY (Dec.1958)page 13 and AINUL INSAN,page 56). It is unforunate that they are all extinct except the DIWANS, which are too,in a very bad shape. However a selection from them has been published in a single volume in Pakistan and acclaimed in the literary cicle, specially by Scholars like Dr.Farman Fatehpuri and poet Rais Amrohvi, as a composition of superb art having a peculiar feature of being N'AT and artistic poetry end to end.
