It worked when I used qpst 2.0.1.7 and you have to rename the firmware folder making sure that there is no space in the name of the firmware that is given in the above post otherwise Sahara fails error will appear again and again this should do your work

Biggest thing I've found that causes Sahara and other failures is Windows built in antivirus system, turn it completely off, and you're almost 100 percent more likely to have a successful flash.

Twrp flash Ausu X00PD Max M1
Thanks alot guys, this forum really saved my neck.
I used the second method & got my problem resolved. I think, i might be have had done something wrong after installing Twrp Recovery, now i used the 2nd method, flashed my device with adb stock firmware provided & my phone finally boot up, but it erased all my data, so i had to do reflash the recovery with Twrp. Thanks a lot fellas u guys r real saviers
