Abdul Hakeem:
A great saint of his time

The Urs of Hazrat Sultan Abdul Hakeem, which is the biggest in Southern
Punjab after Multan and Pakpattan saints, is in full swing nowadays.
People reach here from the Punjab and Sindh by vehicles as well as on foot
after travelling miles and miles.
Sultan Abdul Hakeem was born in 1075 AH when India was being ruled by Mughal
Emperor Aurangzeb Alamgir. His father Ghulam Ali was also a saint and dwelt
near the River Ravi because he was a dyer by profession. His father died in
1099 AH and his grave still exists in a place called Peer Karori.
It is stated that a pilgrims' caravan happened to pass through the area
where the father of Hazrat Sultan was sitting. The chief of the caravan met
Ghulam Ali and predicted that he would be blessed with a son who would a
great saint of his time. Sultan Abdul Hakeem was educated in his native
village Peer Karori. He learnt the Holy Quran by heart at the age of eight
only and to fill the thirsty heart. Then he decided to make a long journey
to Delhi, the centre of religious knowledge at that time. He was admitted in
Madrasa Shah Abdur Raheem, recognised by Auranzeb Alamgir. He spent 12 years
there. Then his teachers allowed him to go back. When he reached home, he
was grieved to know that his father had died. He adopted his father's
profession. One day he was busy in his work when a great saint of his time,
Syed Jamal S/o Syed Abdur Razzaq, grandson of Syed Abdul Qadir Jeelani, came
there. Sultan requested him to accept him as his follower and disciple. His
request was accepted and Sultan Abdul Hakeem was awarded khilafat there
then.
Famous saint Hazrat Bullhey Shah also visited him to learn. Another famous
saint, Hazrat Mian Channu, tehsil Miar Channu has been named after him, also
remained a pupil of Sultan for some time. He died in 1145 AH in the era of
Mughal Emperor Muhammad Shah Rangeela. There are many stories of his
miracles.
Sultan Abdul Hakeem was once walking along with his followers/disciples at
Sidhnai near his residence when a jackal appeared and tried to get close to
Sultan. Some of the followers rushed to hit it but Hazrat prevented them
from doing so and told them to let it come near him. When the jackal got
closer to Sultan Abdul Hakeem, he sat to lick his feet. All the disciples
sat on the ground to listen to what the message it had brought. The jackal
told Sultan that a cruel person had invited the wrath of Allah Almighty by
hurting a buffalo. Allah wants destroy the hamlet soon. So they should shift
to some other place. Sultan did the same and migrated to the place where his
tomb exists. Later, the hamlet was destroyed by Allah.

Are you referring to the same Saint Abdul Hakeem whose tomb is in a town named after him in Punjab. City name is Abdul Hakeem (Urdu: عبدُالحکِیم ), is a city in Kabirwala Tehsil, Khanewal District. If yes, then where did you get this information.
