He also benefited from the father of Syed Sulaiman Nadvi, Hakim Syed Abul Hassan Abul Alai. He was fond of poetry, but also had a strong disposition in nature, and took the correction of poetry from Hazrat Sufi Muniri, a student of Ghalib, and continued to acquire the benefits of formal poetry. Most of your contemporaries were students of Dagh, and even he was influenced a lot by Dagh. He had great devotion to his teacher Sufi Muniri.

He passed away in 1953 in Islampur, Nalanda district and was buried in the embrace of other Pir and Murshid.
