About Haji Imdadullah Makki
Haji Imdadullah Muhajir Makki was born in Nanauta, a town in the district of Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh, India in 1814.
At the age of eighteen, his bay'at was accepted by Nasiruddin Naqshbandi. Later he went to study under Mianji (Noor Mohammad Jhanjhanvi), as an initiate of the Chishti-Sabiri Sufi order, but after Mianji's death he temporarily became a semi-recluse. After wandering in the wilderness for six months he was overcome by a strong urge to travel to Medina. On 1845, he arrived at Banares. From there, he departed for Arabia for Hajj and pilgrimage of the tomb of shrine of Muhammad.
After the completion of his hajj, Imdadullah remained with Ishaq Muhajir Makki and others. Shah informed him that, after his pilgrimage to Medina, he should return to India. Sayyid Qudratullah Banarasi Makki sent several of his murids to accompany him to Medina.
In Thana Bhavan, he was declared a Ameer by the sunnis in 1857 the Battle of Shamli took place between the forces of Haji Imdadullah and the British.
He was of frail physical stature. In his last years, his body deteriorated to such an extent that, towards his death, it became difficult for him to even turn onto his side. He died in 1896 at the age of eighty-two.
