Sai Baba of Shirdi, also known as Shirdi Sai Baba , was an Indian guru, yogi and fakir who is regarded by his Hindu and Muslim followers as a saint. Some of his Hindu devotees believe that he was an incarnation of Shiva or Dattatreya. Many devotees believe that he was a Sadguru. There are many stories and eyewitness accounts of miracles he performed. He is a well-known figure in many parts of the world, but especially in India, where he is much revered.

One of his well known epigrams says of God: "Sabka Malik Ek Hai" ("One God governs all") which traces its root to the Bhagavad-Gita and Islam in general, and Sufism, in particular. He always uttered "Allah Malik" ("God is Master"). He had no love for perishable things, and was always engrossed in self-realization, which was his sole concern
Sai Baba taught a moral code of love, forgiveness, helping others, charity, contentment, inner peace, devotion to God and guru. His teachings combined elements of Hinduism and Islam and tried to achieve communal harmony between these religions.

Quotes of Shirdi Sai Baba :-

" I stay by the side of Whoever repeats my name "

" Give Food to hungry, Water to thirsty, clothes to naked. Then God will be pleased. "

" God is not far away. He is not in the heavens above, nor in hell below. He is always near you. "

" I am ever living to help and guide all who comes to me, who surrender to me and who seeks refuge in me. "

" I am formless and everywhere. "

" God is One. There is no difference between a Hindu and a Muslim. Mosque and Temple are same. "

" My tomb shall bless and speak to the need of my devotees. "

Lyrics of dhun in English Script:

Hey Sai Ram Hey Sai Ram,
Hare Hare Krishna Radhe Radhe Shyam,
Charo Dham main ek hi Naam,
Hey Sai Ram, Hey Sai Ram,

Teri Bhakti pe hai abhimaan,
Hey Sai Ram, Hey Sai Ram,

Tino lok main hain Teri Shaan
Hey Sai ................
