He was born in family of saints. He started learning all ethics and values of Sufism
from lap of his mother. His father trained and groomed him; that enhanced his zeal
and love for Sufism. In his childhood he remained occupied in acquiring knowledge
and serving his father and the Astana Aaliya (the house of saints). He was responsible

his responsibility considering it as a blessing. It was also part of his duties to
hold Mahfil-e-Zikr and Milad Sharif on the Aastana regualary.

hearts from the world to Allah.It was not just spiritual guidance but also a cherished
friendship and amity with my sangis. Now my successor is my son Muneer Hussain who
will continue this great work of turning people's heart toward Allah Almighty. His
words will be of mine and one who will consider him just Muneer Hussain will find
nothing and one who will consider him my successor will find everything. Now onward
he will come to you for holding gatherings of Zikr and Milad Sharif".
He continued holding gatherings of Zikr and Milad Sharif throughout the country
and abroad regularly with great love and passion and turned thousands of people's
heart toward Allah Almighty in the country and abroad. The key purpose of all these
gatherings was to turn people toward Allah's remembrance and increase love for Sunna
of The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). He traveled in Pakistan and all around

human being relentlessly to deliver such teachings and guidance that could purify
their hearts and make them closer to Allah Almighty. Through his impressive and
blessed way of preaching Islam, a large number of non muslims embraced Islam.

Radia tam Mardiya" and the Zikr "Allah Hoo" on his tongue. Beofore that he appointed

be upon him) as his successor and custodian of the great Sufi lineage.
