Sai Baba, also known as Shirdi Sai Baba, was an Indian spiritual master who was regarded by his devotees as a Saint, Fakir, and Satguru according to their individual proclivities and beliefs.
He was revered by both his Hindu and Muslim devotees, and during,
as well as after, his life it remained uncertain if he was a Muslim or a Hindu.
This, however, was of no consequence to Sai Baba.
Sai Baba is known by people around the world. He had no love for perishable
things and his sole concern was realization of the self. He taught a moral code of love,
forgiveness, helping others, charity, contentment, inner peace, and devotion to God and guru.
He gave no distinction based on religion or caste. Sai Baba's teaching combined elements of
Hinduism and Islam: he gave the Hindu name Dwarakamayi to the mosque in which he lived,practised
Muslim rituals, taught using words and figures that drew from both traditions, and was buried in Shirdi.
One of his well known epigrams, "Sabka Malik Ek" ("One God governs all"), is associated with
Hinduism and Islam He also said, "Listen to me and your prayer shall be answered".
He always uttered "Allah Malik" ("God is King").
