Shaykh Sayyad 'Ali bin Uthman al-Hujweri, [d.469H/1077CE] 'alayhi al-rahmah wa'l-ridwan.
Hadrat Shaykh Sayyad Ali bin Uthman al-Hujweri, may Allah be pleased with him, known universally as 'Data Ganj Bakhsh' - (Bestower of Spiritual Treasures) belonged
to a place called Hujwer in the town of Ghazna, Afghanistan. He lived
during the 5th century A.H. (11th century C.E.) and was well versed in
all the Islamic sciences such as Tafsir (exegesis) of the Qur'an, Hadith
(Traditions of the Prophet), Fiqh (Muslim Law) and dogmatic theology (Ilm ul Kalam). Al-Hujweri's spiritual lineage traces back to Junaid al-Baghdadi, May Allah be pleased with him, through the three intermediaries al-Husri, an-Nasrabi, and Shibli.
