b. Jamad-ul-Oola 25, 1335H/ March 20, 1917

He was born at Kandhla District MuzaffarNagar U.P.(India). After memorising the Holy Qur'an at the age of 10 according to his family traditions, he got his early education from his father Hazrat Maulana Muhammad IIyas RAHMATUUAH A'LAlliE in Nizamuddin, and then took admission in Jaami'a Mazaahir-e-Uloorn, Saharanpur, where he completed his elementary education.
