Inna li-llahi wa-inna ilayhi raji`un
The shaykh’s family is one of the most respected families in Deccan, where in were shaykh’s of Qadiri sufi order.
He grew up in Kamalapuram and read the holy Qur’an and other Islamic sciences with his father Shaykh Khader Mouhiuddin ridwanullahi alaihirrahma at a very young age..
It is without doubt that Shaykh was Tourchbearer for the Qadiria sufi order.
His qualities were many, his skills outstanding. Not only was he the leader of the Qadiria Tariqa in his time but also a guiding force for the people for all walks of life.
His true fame came with his immense and intense love for our Master Mohammad alaihissalam. The follower of the ecstatic school of Sufism, he is famous for the boldness of his expression of the mystic’s complete absorption into the Godhead.Such incredible love is not seen in our times.
He achieved immortality by dint of his strength and nobility of character, modesty, humbleness, pursuit of truth, self-discipline, renunciation, sacrifice, service, faith, hope and belief.
After great trials, tribulations, privations, hardships and rigours he obtained fame, following respect, prestige and above all, the crown of immortality.
Throughout his life he exhibited very many supernatural powers. He had to exhibit those powers in order to fulfil his mission in life, which was the propagation of Truth. Society was at its lowest ebb spiritually and he assigned to himself the task of reconstruction, renovation, regeneration and reorientation of society in order to re-establish a new social order based on love, righteousness, truth and justice
Shaykh was an outstanding sufi saint of eminence and repute. His preachings and discourses swayed the masses and the classes. There can be no doubt that the world can still learn much from his writing, teachings, sayings and preachings. His message is a sacred trust. His life is a shining example of victory of truth and righteousness over the forces of darkness and deception.
He was a man of forbearance, never becoming angry except for the sake of Allah.
He was generous, and never refused a beggar. Many a time we saw people come to him,
Whom he would feed and give to generously, especially during religious festivals, when people would come to his house. You would see great throngs of people coming and eating the food That was prepared there, and the smile would not leave his face.
His characteristics, may Allah be pleased with him, included his bigheartedness, and his
concern to give people guidance in times of trial, and immense patience, and a cheery
countenance; Just by looking at his radiant face sinners repented by his hand, and by the grace of keeping his company became believers, and knowers of Allah!
Shaykh (may Allah have mercy on him) was a man of fine character and behaviour, which
Encouraged people to come to him, and gain knowledge from him of true Sufism, until it was Said that Shaykh did not become famous by virtue of his knowledge, though he was
knowledgeable; nor did he become famous by virtue of the miracles he was vouchsafed,
though they were many; rather, he became famous because of his character and his humility and his knowledge of Allah.
If you attended one of his gatherings, you would feel as though you were in one of the
Meadows of Paradise;
He breathed his last at the age of Sixty eight years on 11th Dhul-Hijja 1434 hijri, accordingly 17th October 2013 Thursday. He was buried in premises of Aashiana-e-Zahiria as per his instructions on Friday 18th October 2013.
