He is lineal descendant of Sayyiduna Siddiq-e-Akbar. He received his early education in Ziakot (Sialkot), then for sometime in Lahore and Chokhat-e-Khuwajah Delhi. He spends 4 years and acquired religious education from Hazrat Allama Molana Wasi Ahmad Muhaddis Surti in Pilibhit (U.P. India). After completing Daura-e-Hadis, he received his degree. By the grace of Almighty Allah, Ala Hazrat Imam Ahmed Raza Khan Barelvi performed the Dastar-Bandi of Qutb-e-Madina with his blessed hands. He also pledged allegiance / took Bait from Imam-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat and got the certificate of Khilafat just at the age of eighteen. From Karachi to Baghdad In 1900, (1318 AH), when Hazrat Qutb-e-Madina was 24 years of age, he took leave of his Murshid Imam-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat and came to Karachi. Having spent some time here, he went to Baghdad in order to get special blessings and favors from Sayyiduna Ghaus-e-Azam. In Baghdad, he had been utterly absorbed into divine meditation for almost 4 years. He remained in the illuminated city of Baghdad approximately for 9 years and some months. Visit of sacred Madina In 1327 AH (1910), Hazrat Qutb-e-Madina entered Madina following the route of Damascus (Syria) by train. Turkish rulers used to ‘serve’ Madina in those days. Starved for seven days Hazrat Qutb-e-Madina said, ‘When I arrived at Madina, I experienced such a time that I had to starve for 7 days in the beginning. On the seventh day, when I got very weak due to hunger, a very dignified saint came to me and gave me three bags and left saying that he would bring some more things for me from the market. The first bag contained honey, flour and ghee. After some time, he brought me a packet of tea, sugar, etc., and returned immediately. I ran after him so that I could ask him the details, but he had disappeared. Qutb-e-Madina was asked humbly about that person. He replied, ‘I presume that he might be the uncle of the Beloved Prophet Syed-us-Shuhada Syedna Ameer Hamza because he has been entrusted with the Wilayat (sainthood) of Madina Munawwarah.
