Sachal Sarmast (1739–1829) which means truthful and intoxicated was born in Daraza village near Ranipur of Kahirpur Sindh.

Sachal was a great lover of music. Touched by music, he would often cry profusely. Couplets would pour out from his lips, which his followers or fellow dervishes would immediately inscribe. Sachal is well known for his kalam as well as kafis conveying his spiritual message in haunting melodies. Sachal preferred solitude and silence.

He is regarded as 'Shair-e-Haft Zaban' (Poet of Seven Languages) due to his poetical works in Arabic, Sindhi, Saraiki, Punjabi, Urdu,Persian and Balochi to address the wider audience in these languages. He spread the message of love for humanity through poetry.
