Hazrat Faqir Sultan Bahu Awan was the founder of the Sarwari Qadiri Sufi order and is one of the most beloved Sufi poet-saints of the Punjab region in what is today Pakistan. He lived during the period of Mughal rule in India.

He wrote more than forty books on Sufi philosophy and Islamic mysticism in Persian and Punjabi, but he is best known for his poetry, which is often performed as qawaals (devotional songs).

Sultan Bahu's tomb is an popular pilgrimage spot today in Pakistan.
