Meerza Ikhtiyar Hussain {Jabalpur}

Dr. Meerza Ikhtiyar Hussain Presently, Sufi Shaykh of this order is Dr. Meerza Ikhtiyar Hussain. He does not like to have his long introduction on this website. However, we would at least add a persian proverb as his introduction, which he conveyed to his disciples in another context. The proverb says,'mushk aanast kaey khud babooyad na kaey attar me goyad' i.e. the fragrance of musk is itself an introduction to the musk and a chemist / perfume seller does not have to describe its qualities. Besides, he is a poet and has also written several books on the Sufi path.
