Sheikh Sabit first lived in the village of Bilot. Here, the Barech were continuously vexed by fellow Afghan tribes so he appointed two members of his tribe to search for another place. Finally, the Barech migrated to Shorawak. At Shorawak, the Barech faced three problems; scarcity of water, snakes, and the neighbouring Balochies. As soon as they migrated, the prayers of Sheikh Sabit were all heard of. The Baloch stopped mischief with them, and the snake bites had no effect on them. [Niamatullah]


He was also a disciple of Khwaja Mowdood Chishti. [Niamatullah]


His nemesis was Sheikh Ilyas, who was also a fellow disciple of Khwaja Mowdood Chishti. Sheikh Ilyas was granted an "arrow of evil" by the saint. And Ilyas's repeated efforts to hit Sheikh Sabit with it failed. [Niamatullah]
