However, they told him that there lived an A'waan Jaat, who is a very ordinary person and often travels here and there aimlessly and sometimes he also does farming and cultivation and these days, he has started cultivation again. In short, when that Sayyed heard such unexpected and absurd talks, he became upset and gloomy. He started thinking in his heart that the state of affairs was very strange, extremely suspicious and complicated. That person, who has given his address, he cannot be liar nor can he make fun of me. I have found a person Bahu but the actual position appears quite different than that I was advised. Since I have travelled long and done hard, at least I should go and meet him. Then the Sayyed asked a person that where he can be found then. Someone told him about his appearance and the whereabouts of his fields. In short, that Sayyed moved to that place and when he asked someone again when he had reached near his fields, he told him that that person, whom he wanted to meet, was ploughing in his fields.
'He is Mian Bahu', he told him. That Sayyed started seeing his highness, standing under a tree. He fell in a strange wonder and indecision. First, he was caught up in the whirlpool of poverty and paucity and now in the net of that Phoenix like Sultan ul Faqara, who had covered the all-glorious sun of the Anwaar of the Essence under disguise of anonymity and obscurity. The Sayyed started thinking in his heart that 'this person, looks more poor and meager that me and his own condition is so distressed that he is working so hard under blazing sun for his stomach. What will he give me? However, it would be silliness if he does not meet him after having travelled long. What if I am poor, at least, I should consider that I belong to the noble race. When I am a Sayyed, it better would be dying over asking for help from a Jaat (a caste of Farmers).' Thus, that Sayyed decided to leave. He had not walked a few steps that Hazrat Sultan ul Arifeen Hazrat Sultan ul Faqar Hazrat Sultan Bahu May Allah Sanctify his Secret called him 'O Mian! Who are you and why did you come here and now for what are you leaving so early?'
