The Honorable Saint occupies a unique position. He successfully combined in himself, the two roles. He was the outstanding Saint and the leading learned man of unquestioned greatness. He was not only an outstanding Saint, Sage, Scholar, and a Reformer, but also Defender of Faith. He achieved immortality by dint of his strength and nobility of character, modesty, humbleness, pursuit of truth, self-discipline, renunciation, sacrifice, service, faith, hope and belief.

His writings were similar to those of Hazrat Imaam Al-Ghazaali in that they dealt with both the fundamentals of Islam and the mystical experience of Soofism.
