Shaikh Mir Asedullah Quadri does not require any formal introduction. His
His distinct way of teaching shows his knowledge to be practical, rather than theoretical. He explains most difficult and complicated issues with unique style of ease which keeps the readers spellbound; most of whom feel that their understanding capacities have enhanced and their hearts illuminated with Ilm-e-Sahih.(سبحانہ و تعا لی) (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم)Shaikh generally does not discuss personal issues or his spiritual experiences in public. He says - 'if you talk personal issues in public, many people do not understand and start suspecting that the Shaikh is trying to impress upon the people. Sometimes, an inadvertent slip of tongue about special beneficence of Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) or Prophet Mohammad's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) instructions in a dream or wakefulness or the issues related to the World of Similitude (عالمِ مثال) creates ripples among contemporaries and adversaries alike, and floodgates of criticism and suspicion are opened. This kind of negative thoughts in their minds and their criticism and slander hurt them badly because if anyone talks bad, out of suspicion and ignorance, about a beloved of Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) and His Apostle (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), he gets severe punishment in this world as well as in Hereafter. These punishments are not noticed in this world. Sometimes it so happens that the entire book of good deeds is erased or burnt by Allah's appointed angels and understanding capacities about Sahih Iman are seized because of foul mouth talk of that person'.
Shaikh was born on 1st Jumada II, 1373 H, corresponding to February 5, 1954 in Hyderabad, India, in Sadaat family (the direct descendants of Hazrat Ali - رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ and Sayyida Fatimatuz Zahara - رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہا).

Their guidance and assistance has been vital for me during my journey on the intrinsic path of Ihsan. It is because of them I was rewarded with Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم ) audience. Their unwavering support to our Sahih Iman campaign in the world is like a solid rock that cannot be assailed by anyone in the world.

- Sh. Momin Ali Qadri (RA)On another occasion Shaikh told his close Murideen that his Shuyookh Hadhrat Mohammad Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui, Hadhrat Badruddin Khaled Wajudi, Hadhrat Hussain Shujauddin Siddiqui (رحمة الله عليهم اجمعین) were Aghwaath of their times and his father Hadhrat Mir Momin Ali Quadri (رحمة الله عليه) was Abdaal of his time.On this some Murideen asked about the status of Shaikh. He replied, 'it is important for you all to know that whatever I got on this path is not by my prayers, fasting, religious work or night vigils. It is purely from the generosity and tawojjoh of my Shuyookh and Grand Shuyookh. They played a big role in my life. Whatever you see is the Sadaqa of Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and mercy of Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی).'Shaikh kept quiet for a while and said - 'some of you on whom when 'World of Similitude' (عالمِ مثال) will be opened, they will know many facts. Whoever among you, when awarded with spiritual vision, make sure that you do not disclose in public or publicize in speeches what is being viewed by you, because some people cannot understand the importance and significance of your statements and make a mockery of it and reserve their place in Hell for their foul mouth. However, it is Sunnah and the normal practice of Awliya Allah that they confide (disclose) these facts to their Shuyookh and to very close deserving murideen/members of their families. It is in Ahadith that Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) used to tell his spiritual experiences to Ummul Momineen Khadeeja (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہا) and other members.'
