This Famous Holy Saint was born in Manickkapur near Ayodhya
in the northern Indian state of U.P. on a blessed Friday early
morning in the Arabic month of 10th Jamathul Akhir Hijiri 910
(1491-A.D.)The Holy Saint was the 23rd lineal descendant of
the Holy Prophet MOHAMMED (S.A.W the peace upon him). His father
was HAZARATH SYED HASAN KHUDDOOS SAHIB and his mother BEEBI
Even before his birth, a messenger of God appeared before his
mother Beebi Fathima in a dream and predicted that she would
be blessed with a son who would be the Savior of people and
spend his life to spread Ilam. Even as a child he showed signs
of great wisdom, intense piety and divine communication before
he was eight years old and learnt Arabic language and its grammar.
He went in search of a religious preceptor (Master) who could
educate him in solving the riddle and the secrecy of the world
and who could teach him more about the Almighty and his ways
and at his parent's desire, went to Gwalior to be initiated
by HAZARATH SYED MOHAMED GHOUSE SAHIB Gwalior in divine knowledge.

After more than a decade of training, he left Gwalior and went
to Manickkapur with a bunch of 404 disciples and then toured
extensively with his disciples in Afghanistan, Balusistan and
other places of the world performing innumerable miracles on
the way by raising the dead, making the dump to speak and the
lamb to walk and by curing all kinds of incurable diseases.
On his way to Makkah (Saudi Arabia), he halted in a Mosque at
Lahore where a rich and respectable Mohammedan Kazi Hazarath
Noordin Sahib approached him to be blessed with a child. The
Saint gave a chewed betel leaf to Noordin and instructed Noordin
to hand over to his wife Beebi Johara and ordained that she
should swallow it and remain separated from her husband for
40 days.He prayed to the Almighty to bless Noordin with children,
and also informed Noordin that the eldest son should be dedicated
to him as his son and asked Noordin to remain with him for 40
days without seeing his wife.As per his blessings, Beebi Johara
conceived and gave birth to a son on the 12th of Rajab Hijiri
959 and the child was named SYED MOHAMMED YOOSUF SAHIB as directed
by the Holy Saint.
The child was properly educated and in his 7th year took leave
of his parents to go and meet his real father at Makkah as he
heard a Divine Voice informing him that his father (Hazarath
Syed Shahul Hameed Qadir wali) was awaiting his arrival at Makkah
so he went to Makkah and joined his father there.The Saint,
his son and 404 followers-disciples visited Ponnani, Sri Lanka,
Kayalpattinam, Keelakarai and Thankasi and propagated Islam.

was ruling over Thanjavur. The King Achuthuppa Naikan, then
ruler of Thanjavur was suffering from a grievous and prolonged
illness. The ministry of the King begged the Saint and requested
him to visit the palace and cure the ill of the King. The Saint
was very much moved went to the palace and found that a dove
was made to suffer by black-magic, with pin pricks all over
its body and it was in a very unsafe condition and was the cause
of the King's ailment at once. He asked his son to bring the
dove prayed and removed one by one the pins in the body of the
dove. After the removal of the pins the King recovered and got
well. The queen energized by the miraculous cure of her husband
fell on her knees before the Saint and begged the Saint to bless
them with children. The Saint accordingly blessed them with
a fruitful progeny and in return the King offered wealth and
rich presents which the Saint did not accept but only asked
the King to give him a piece of land near the Sea-shore.
Accordingly the King dedicated 30 acres of land called 'Heavenly'
and submitted the same to the Holy Saint on which the present
buildings and premises of "Nagore Dargha shrine" stands.
