Bullhe Shah is universally admitted to have been the greatest of the Punjabi mystics. No Punjabi mystic poet enjoys a wider celebrity and a greater reputation.
His Kafis have gained unique popularity. In truth he is one of the greatest Sufis of the world and his thought equals that of Jalal-ud-din Rumi and Shams Tabriz of Persia.
As a poet Bullhe Shah is different from the other Sufis poets of the Punjab, and represents that strong and living pious nature of Punjabi character which is more reasonable than emotional or passionate. As he was an outcome of the traditional mystic thought we can trace some amount of mystic phraseology and sentiment In his poetry but in the main, intellectual Vedantic thought is its chief characteristic.
Bullhe Shah's epic poetry has been beautifully rendered here by the late maestro Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
Bullhe Shah was born in a Saiyid family residing at the village Pandoki of Kasur in the Lahore district, in the year A.D 1680. This was during the twenty- first year of Emperor Aurangzeb's reign. According to C.F Usbome he died in A.H 1171 or A.D.1785 at the ripe old age of 78.
