    Sachal Sarmast or Sacho Sarmast (Sindhi: سچو سرمست‎ (1739–1827), born Abdul Wahab Farooqi (Sindhi: عبدالوهاب فاروقي‎) was a prominent and a legendary Sindhi Sufi poet from Sindh (Mehran) in modern-day Pakistan. Sachal Sarmast wrote poetry in seven languages: Sindhi, Siraiki, Persian, Urdu, Balochi, Punjabi and Arabic.[1] He lived during the Kalhoro/Talpur era. He was born in 1152 H (AD 1739) in Daraza, near Ranipur.[2] He was a Sunni Sufi Muslim and contributed a lot to Sindhi Poetry too. His descent is claimed to be from the second Caliph of Sunni Islam, Umar. His book, like Shah Jo Risalo, is fittingly called Sache Jo Risalo (“The Message of the Truthful”).
