His desire for Deen was initiated by his initial ustaad Maulana Fateh Muhammed Saheb.Commonly referred to as Hakim al-Ummat ('Sage of the Ummah'), was a giant among the Islamic scholars of the twentieth century. He was a master in all branches of Islamic scholarship including Qur'an, Hadith, Fiqh and Tasawwuf. A prolific writer, he had more than a thousand publications to his credit. He wrote for the minimally literate as effectively as he did for scholars. Nearly a century later some of his books remain as popular as they were when originally published.
