dreams in 1825 which his father appeared and advised him to become the disciple
of Hazrat Shah Muhammad Maroof Shahidullah Qadiri, who was a famous Sufi of his
times in Hyderabad. Therefore, he sought out this great sufi, and became his disciple

Qadiri appointed Sayyid Sahib Husayni as his "khalifa" (successor).

Sayyid Sahib Husayni a number of times in Tekmal. During one such visit in 1831,
he also granted the title of "sajjadah" to Sayyid Sahib Husayni.

that he would die in that town, and be buried there. A place for his grave was
determined. He came again the following year in 1834 and expired and is buried
in Tekmal according to his will. His death occurred on 2 Sha'aban 1249 Hijri.
