Birth: The Hazrat was born in 1084 in Peshawar.
EDUCATION: The Hazrat got his education under the supervision of his father. When he reached to the age of 07, the Hazrat tried hard to memorize the holey Quran but he was unable to do so.

The Hazrat also travelled to Kabul and met religious scholars and got benefitted from them.
Obtainment of mysticism: When the Hazrat disengaged from lore, his father, Hazrat Syed Hassan Badshah Sahib started to teach him mysticism. First of all, he did Bayat (oath of allegiance ) in silsila Qadria from his father and sat in intimity (Khilwat). He performed four chilla (a practice involving withdrawal (‘uzla) from ordinary social interaction for the purpose of dedicating oneself wholly to spiritual exercises and ascetical disciplines for a period of forty days). Then the Hazrat remained un-diverted in one place for six years and meditated. After six years, the hazrat was granted charter of Khilafat.
