Fakeer

An Eastern religious ascetic or monk.

Fakir

A fakir, faqeer or faqir (; Arabic: فقیر (noun of faqr)), derived from faqr (Arabic: فقر, "poverty") is an Islamic term traditionally used for a Sufi Muslim whose contingency and utter dependence upon God is manifest in everything they do and every breath they take. They do not necessarily renounce all relationships and take a vow of poverty, some may be poor and some may even be wealthy, but the adornments of the temporal worldly life are kept in perspective and do not detract from their constant neediness of God.
