During the time of Hazrat Data Ganj Bakhsh there were not established educational institutes like we have in modern times. Mosques used to teach Quran Majeed reading and memorising. It was very hard for many people to study Islamic knowledge at those times due to many problems. Many students used to travel far to gain valuable Islamic knowledge at the feet of pious and sufi scholars.
Hazrat Data Ganj Bakhsh opened his eyes into the blessed noble family who was famous for their Islamic and Spiritual knowledge. His family?s piety, asceticism, mysticism, theology and righteousness were great and it had great influence on him, which then helped him to become the greatest Leader of Sufis and Awliya Allah.
He also benefited a lot from the pious conduct of his noble family members whose character, ways, manners and upbringing were excellent examples of living Islamic life. Therefore he belongs to the Family of the Prophet Hazrat Mohammad Sallallaho Alehe Wasalam and was clean, noble and ideal for anyone to follow them.
