The purpose of this study is to reveal how the Sufi poets of Pakistan have contributed in making an elusive and multidimensional phenomenon such as Sufism viewable and accessible for common man. With culture and history as a backdrop, the Sufi poets adopt a humanistic rather than a didactic approach towards reforming their people spiritually. The present study focuses on the social and human elements in the poetry of Baba Bulleh Shah (1680-1752) and Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai (1690-1760). It is an effort to show that the Sufi poets were essentially the poets of humanity and this is the crux of their universal appeal.
