He fell in love with a Brahman boy, Madhoo, and that became his lifelong love and also a part of his name. Their love was so strong that Shah Hussain's name was changed to Madhoo Lal Hussain forever. Madhoo became the leader after Shah Hussain's death and was buried next to his lover-Guru:Whichever way we interpret the relationship between Shah Hussain and Madhoo one thing is clear: they were openly in love and the society accepted it. Personally I dont find it odd, homosexuality has always been accepted within sufi circles after all gender like ethnicity is also an illusion-a man made construct, so it doesn’t really matters what disguise the beloved dons to meet you.
Shah Hussain is a faqir (God's man with no possessions) and do not call him a peer
